@cfinkenbine I think it is a wise decision to go with the outside photographer based on what I saw when I was there.

I tried getting on their website for about a week or two, and the website was down for construction. They did e-mail me pictures, and although I did like them, I could not find a whole lot of reviews which made me nervous!


Edit: mentioned pricing and wasn't sure that was allowed.

Wow, glad I saw this! Although pictures are very important to me, and I had already planned on upgrading and spending more on pictures. It is sooo worth the extra money!

    Yes it is very misleading - No one likes having things changed on them last minute - especially brides - but I am jumping to no conculsion that resorts photographers are no good - some of the photos I hae seen are very wonderful - most resorts just have contracts with outside vendors so as to not encroch or pay a fee for that encrochment -

    You are a photographer adversting photography and thus your photos are edited professionally (as they should be) and the photographers at the resort hand you a CD before you leave 2 days later - while they have other weddings to shoot and only so much time.
