    They partnered with several photgraphers, you have to click on photography partners http://www.sandals.c...otographers.cfm

    You can call Sandals directly and ask for prices for each, they won't allow anyone else on the property though. The best way to do it if you still want to get married at Sandals to get one of the partner photogs, have them take pics of the ceremony and then go off property to shoot and have reception later after all pics are taken. We had to rush our reception because of the pictures and we didn't have time to leave the property, so all our pics are kind of in the same area. Also, my personal advice, have someone do the video for you, or get video package from Sandals, we are very sorry now we didn't and our camera wasn't charged and no one checked it before the ceremony. We have small video shot by my mom and it brings all the memories much better than photos.

        I haven't decided on a resort yet ... Sandals does a great job of marketing itself. The resorts do look amazing but I'm afraid maybe it's too big for my tastes.... decisions...decisions ...

          Honestly, now that I had wedding there, I wouldn't do wedding at Sandals, I would choose smaller and more flexible resort for just the wedding and Sandals for honeymoon. BB wedding is free, but you'll end up paying for addons and if your guests are off property, it's very costly, you wouldn't ask guests pay for their own guest pass.

            thanks for sharing your experience. i prefer a smaller resort as well. My fiance is very interested in Sandals but I think only because their website has a lot of info and makes it easy to read and looks pretty. He doesn't really read into the details about addons etc. Pictures are the most important thing to me and I don't really like being limited to who I can and cannot choose to take pics of my wedding!

            i was worried about that guess pass thing. how much do they charge for that? sandals rooms are kinda pricey so some guests might opt to stay somewhere else :(

              We had to get $150 p/p. Our wedding was at 4pm so we had to get all day pass and it included 3 hr reception and cocktail. Regular day pass is $75 pp. And as I said reception followed right after the ceremony which made us rush through the photos and reception and both children had to leave immediately after reception ended with both adults supervising them even though we paid full day passes. To me having a reception at Sandals wasn't worth the money. The total price of reception for 8 people was around 3000, I feel like we could get a much better deal if we went off property.

              we haven't sent out our invites yet so we don't know how many guests were having. but yeah that is pretty pricey. now i'm not so sure if i can afford a TTD session :(

                Hi hope your question was answered.In regards to the reception if you have enough people just do the free one for the hour and then go to restaurant and eat dinner together!!!

                Hey Mary .. where did you find the names? When I go to Sandals' site, it still says outside photographers are not allowed ... unless I am going to the wrong page?
