Disney Cruise Wedding Photography

My husband and I are renewing our vows on the Disney Dream Dec 2014. I am so excited and have already started planning. When we got married it was at a tiny local courthouse while my husband was still in the military. We had a big wedding planned in TN, but we ended up moving to California. Then it got put on hold again because we had a few sweet children. 2 boys & a girl I am so happy that our kids get to be involved.

Now on to my question: I know that Disney uses a third party for photos. Does anyone know if they are good? & Who it even is? Or is it better to bring your own photographer/find someone in the area down there who are willing to go on the cruise

Also any advice or tips for the wedding are greatly appreciated. I am thinking about having my kids dress as their favorite Disney Character.

Thank you in advance!

I can't answer your question but......

there is a Wedding Forum with a Wedding Cruise thread. You may want to look that up.

From the posts there, some have been happy with them, some have not, some have brought their own photographer.

I honestly think I am searching wrong, because I cant find the cruise one. I can find it for Disney World, but that is it. I will keep searching, thank you!!

Wedding Photographer

Hi , I got married at Castaway Cay on Sept 2010. By the time all my guests had reserved their cabins there was no more left for me to take an outside photographer, there were only COncierge rooms available which was way out of our budget. We had no other option but to use the onboard photographer. I was very surprised on how much time he spent with us and the quality of the photos. He took pics at the ceremony on Castaway , beach , with all the characters on the island, if front of the boat , the reception afterwards at PAlo, and a few around the ship while it was completely empty I ended up purchasing the CD with all the pics because I couldn't decide.

I hope you have a wonderful Renewal !!!

We're celebrating our 3 years this SEpt on the Dream

We did our vow renewal on Castaway and couldn't have been more pleased with Disney's photographer. She met with us the first day of the cruise, with a portfolio. We went over the shots we liked and didn't like. She had some great ideas and some of those turned out to be our favorites.

Here is one of my favorites:

Looks like we had the place to ourselves, doesn't it?

Good luck and enjoy!

We were married on the magic in 2010 and were very impressed with the photographer. They have a set time to go around the ship with you after the ceremony but our photographer definitely went over the allowed time. Your supposed to get i think 45min and he was with us 1.5 to 2 hrs with us. Very impressed with there work.

We had the same experience. Ours even asked us if there were any other pics that we wanted besides what he already took.
