That's really weird.. right in the Sandals wedding packet it lists the photography options.. I think the lowest package is called "Simply Romantic" and it's $1,200 and it comes with 42 photos (36 5x7's, 6 8x10's and a photo album of purchased photos and all 42 photos on a disc).
I spoke to my wedding planner last Thursday and that was the cheapest package offered. $1,200. It blows my mind. And I might HATE the photos. Or even worse, spend hours trying to pick out 42 out of the 200+ photos they probably take.
I'll have to ask about having outside photographer if the photographer I know locally can't come.
Do you know who you spoke to that quoted you those prices?
I hired an offsite photog and they aren't allowed on sandals property. In order for a photog to come on property they need to be a paying customer for 3 nights (I'm sure you prob already knew this). So we are having our ceremony at 3 and the snapshots people will be there and take some shots. We will pay PER PIC which I believe is 20 or 25 per pic. Directly after our ceremony my photog is picking us up and heading all over town to take wedding photos (much more fun and interesting than resort!) ending with TTD pics at sunset.
They do have a cheaper package than the 1200. I know this bc I inquired before I asked the per pic price. I want to say it's between 400-600 I just can't remember.
EDIT: found the email from WC
Also what is the smallest photo package that sandals provides?
Please see attached we start as low as 24 images on CD or 5x7 prints for $460
Can we just pay per photo?
Is $20 to 25 per picture the 24 can cover the pre wedding and the Ceremony photo
