    Pay the 3250 and make it simple.

    Fly in another photographer, its worth it.

    I know a great photographer in Jaimaca (tell me please!) use them.

    Other ideas (please comment any ideas I haven't already thought of)

    My vote would be to fly in your own photographer.  Whether you sneak the person in or pay the extra $500 is up to you (I would pay the extra $500, but I’m paranoid).  I don’t love the photographer that the venue recommends, and I think you could probably find someone much better.  Have you thought about using a different photographer in Jamaica?  That way you wouldn’t have to pay for flight and hotel and could splurge a little more on the photography.

    I would advise strongly against sneaking someone in.  As a photographer myself, I know that you don’t want to risk something going wrong with your wedding photos, and should make sure you are doing it according to your venue’s standards so nothign unexpected happens.

    Additionally, don’t book someone unles you love their style, and feel they’re a good fit–it has to be a match 🙂

    I’d say fly your own photographer in. Consider them a “friend” at the resort, and rest assured that you’ll have the pictures that you want. 

    I sent you a PM!

    Talk to the venue again, ask to speak to a manager, remind them that you are paying them A LOT of money as it is and ask them to let you have your own photographer at no extra cost. 

    I would simply suggest that if they comply you would suggest the venue to family and friends for future get togethers. Of course you don’t need to do this, but its good for them to believe they have potential returning customers.
