I have just set my date for September 16, 2012 at the Paris Casino in Las Vegas.
I was just wondering if anyone knows how their photographer is? They don’t really seem to allow outside photographers, so I want to be sure that their photographer is awesome.
Any help is appreciated!

It might be too late now if you’ve set things up but many venues actually DO allow outside photographer is you insist on it ( you’ve just got to do the insisting before you put the deposit down ).

@Amanda_B: lol! I already put the deposit down but I can probably still try insisting when it gets down to it. If nothing else, I can just place my photographer in the front row and say shes a guest (since they allow guests to take pics, just as long as they dont leave the pews)

Most of the chapels use Cashman Photography and won’t allow outside professional photography at all. They are all trained photographers that work at the hotels so they know the areas for great photos. You can ask them to send you some examples.

I got married here! Photographer’s skills are awesome, customer service (at least the guy i got) was a nightmare. He told my GRANDMA to hurry up and get to the pdium to be in the family picture. Thank goodness she has a sense of humor. I didn’t tip him at all because he was such an a$$. But the photos turned out sooo great. If they offer you the package to get pictures done all over the hotel grounds – do it! I wish I had. I still regret not getting those. I thought I would feel silly in my dress at the hotel, but everyone will LOVE you (and stare and point and whistle etc LOL!) But I absolutely LOVED my wedding and wouldn’t have done it any other way. Message me if you need more details!

@tacorime: Oh cool! Good to know! I have the bare minimum package, Im already dropping a bunch on the reception, so I didnt do as much on the ceremony. I definitely want to take pics around the Paris, so I’ll have my “photographer” do it. 😀 We didnt hire a professional one, but we have family and a friend who are stellar photographers so I’ll probably have them do it 🙂
Thanks so much for the info though, it makes me feel better!
