    My mother always told me her only regret regarding her wedding was that she didn't have a professional photographer. That always stuck with me so I made sure that I have a photographer who I love. I've booked Julia Eskin for our wedding in the Dominican because I love how her photos are natural and not too edited. I have booked her unlimited package so she will be there from lunch when I start prepping until the party starts that night with our first dances. I hope she lives up to my expectations!

      I booked my photographer, Aurora Gutierrez of AuroraGPhotography in Guadalajara, Mexico, for the entire day basically. I think it depends on what you're looking for. Initially, I looked at it in terms of hours, thinking I only wanted the major parts covered (getting ready, ceremony, couple/family shots). However, she will stay the day with you. My video guys were the same way. When we got done, they got done. It also depends on the style/intensity of your vendors. I think 6-8 hours is good enough, but then you have to consider the cost. Each photographer prices differently. Do you want one that prices by hours spent or images taken? I'm glad they were there the whole time because I think it tells a better story.

        This is a great thread! I have been contemplating how many hours lately. I originally booked our photographer for 4hrs but now I'm worried that it wont be enough time!

            We booked La Luna for 5 hours at their recommendation. We wanted longer, but it simply was not in the budget. I think they can capture a great story in that time though.

              We booked only 4 hours for our wedding...I'm also now really worried that that's not enough time. We're expecting 50 to 60 guests.

                    If you go to Jamaica Wedding Vendors forum, you'll find lots of recommendations and threads on photographers for Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. Take a look at Stacey Clarke and Misha Earle's websites...they are fantastic photographers and have great reviews on BDW. Good luck!
