Question About Taking Your Own Photographer

Recommended Posts

So I have decided I will be taking my own professional photographer (a cousin). I will be bartering vacation time for pictures. This is actually cheaper than hiring a photographer there. She and husband will be coming as a guests.

When I first started researching local photographers I inquired about the vendor fee. My WC told me the fee was 350 for local or if I used one of my guests, like family, they could offer a discount.

I think that is just ridiculous! What is the difference if I handed a camera to guest and asked them to take photos all night?

So I'm wondering if I should even tell her before hand that my family member is taking my photos?

I refuse to pay a vendor fee for my own guest.

What so y'all think? Or what have others done?

We are bringing our own photographer and she is staying the week with us and since she is my guest we are not paying anything extra. I believe at our resort we don't have to pay as long as they stay >5 days . I am not even mentioning us having a photographer thought in case.

It just depends on where you're getting married (what resort you get married at) as they are all different. I got married on 6/27/14 at the Riu palace in cabo San Lucas and my uncle did our photography. We did not have to pay a vendor fee because he was a guest and staying at the resort!!
