playacar palace photographer/videographer

Recommended Posts

So I have finally narrowed down my resort to playacar palace my only concern with it is the photography, this is very important to me I have noticed on the website if I bring my own photographer they will charge me $500. A friend of mine is a fantastic photographer and IIwas thinking about paying for her trip to take pictures all week but I dont want to pay for her trip down there is I have to pay another $500 on top of it. Can someone please help with this decision! Do they actually charge that ? Do I have to use their photographer?

If your guest is staying at Playacar Palace, you will not need to pay the resort the vendor fee.

welcome soon2BePerry,

 

it is true, if your photographer is a guest of the resort they do not need to pay the outside vendor fee.

One concern of bringing your own professional photographer from home is the airport customs, and legal requirements. A professional photographer cannot just come into Mexico and work without the legal paperwork or permission.

All luggage is scanned, and anyone carrying professional equipment (or has more than one camera body, lens or flash)  is stopped and pulled aside to explain their luggage.

Our premier photographer is stopped and checked every time he enters Mexico - luckily he has all the legal paperwork and is licensed to work here!

Is it really worth taking the risk of ruining your wedding trip by having your photographer from home denied entry - and then how do you find another photographer at the last minute - or ???

 

There are so many fantastic professional wedding photographers available here - the key is to find the one whose work resonates with you and touches your heart - they'll create the photo memories you'll cherish your whole lifetime!!! priceless :)

That's interesting! I've never heard that one before... what's the difference between "professional" equipment and just fancy cameras that many of my guests will bring?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
