    Hi all,

     

    My fiance and I had originally planned to get married in Sun Palace, but now we are not so sure...

    Sun Palace is going to charge us $800 to bring in outside photographers!! which is ridiculous for our budget.

    It totally caught me off-guard, as it seemed that many couples were bringing in outside photographers with purchase of day passes.

     

    Question:

    Does anyone here have experience with resort photographers at Sun Palace? Are they alright?

    It seems quite expensive considering small number of photos you receive. How is the quality of photography?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Most of the larger resorts do charge a similar outside vendor fee.

     

    One way people have gotten around that fee is to have their vendor stay at the resort as a guest.  Then they do not usually have any additional fee.  Please note that sometimes resorts have a minimum stay (like 2 nights).

      Thanks Tammy,

       

      I think the thread that I read were quite old.

      It looks like the days of inviting your photographers with day passes are over. :(

      My fiance and I are going to stick to Sun Palace though. We talked about getting married there for a long time.

      We now need to decide whether to use resort photographers or to stretch our budget and hire outside photographers.

       

      If anyone who used resort photographers in Sun Palace (even non wedding photos) can share their photos and opinions, I would greatly appreciate it.

       

      Thanks!

      I brought a photographer from the United States with me (ended up being cheaper than hiring a local one and paying the vendor fee) and I got my photographer for 3 days instead of a few hours!! May want to consider going that route..  Also I got married at Sun Palace 11/23/2012 so if you have any questions feel free to PM me! :)

      im getting married at Azul beach and their outside vendor fee is also $800 and the approved vendors are awful.

       

      Im flying in my photog from the states and its cheaper than a local plus the fee.  Definitely worth it...she was my "splurge" for the wedding
