    Default Pictures during ceremony

    We are getting married on Oct 3, 2011. One other couple is going with us, so my dilema is pictures of the ceremony! I don't want to pay extra for a photographer, the other couple will take photos before and after. But since they are both standing with us as a maid of honor and best man, I am not sure what to do about pictures during the ceremony. Any suggestions? Has anyone run into this problem and how did you resolve it?

    We are going with the resort photographer. They were running a special and we booked them for 50 pictures with a 12x12 album for $450. We also have 2 people coming with us but will also be in the ceremony. If you have any resort credits you can use it towards the photographer. Or else see if anyone from the message board/other couples on vacation would be willing to take pictures for you. Good luck!

    I suggest going with the resort photographer. We got 25 photos for about $300. Claudia (ask for her) took 100 photos and we got to choose. We also got the CD to bring home and make more photos and other memorabilia. (I just made a tshirt of the two of us walking on the beach.) You will love sharing them with family and friends who are not there with you. If you want to see my photos let me know and I'll add you as a facebook friend.

    @abbi&derrik -- I emailed Debbie and asked her. She said sometimes the specials change too so I plan on emailing her every few months to see what the current special is.

    It would be awesome to see the difference in the photogs! When do you have to let them know you want to choose a photography package....can you do that when you get there, or do you have to pay in advance for a resort photographer? Can you pay for the resort photographer when you check out at the end of your stay?

    I would double check with Debbie about the special. She told me about the same special of 50 pictures with the 12x12 album. However, she also told me this does not include the price of the photographer. You have to either have a resort photographer or outside photographer take the pictures, then you have to send the pictures to create the album. The $450 is just for the album and for them to arrange the pictures in it for you.

    Thanks! I just emailed Debbie to double check! I really don't want the album, just the CD with picture (can make my own album on SnapFish for way cheaper!).

    I checked with Debbie and it does include the photographer for one hour.
