Resort Photo Sessions

Hi there,
Are the resort photo sessions (ie: poly) only for guest staying onsite?
I thought I saw once that off site guests could do them.
Also, does any one have cost information about these sessions?
Thanks so much! I can't find info anywhere.

They are for anyone. They offer a mini session that is 20 minutes. You get all the pictures on a USB drive with copyright release. The cost is $150. We had it done last year and were very happy with the pictures. The photographer spent much more than 20 minutes with us. We are doing another mini session in a few weeks.

There is a more expensive option that is around $350, but I don't remember the details on that one.

We did the mini session at the Beach Club in 2011. Our photographer also spent more than 20 minutes with us and we got a bunch of great photos.

I believe the mini sessions are now offered at the Beach Club, Grand Floridian and Polynesian.

The more expensive sessions are also offered at some of the parks too, which will run you $350.

We did the mini session at the Poly last May and thought the value was there. We got 60-plus images out of it; our photographer spent about 30 minutes with us.

There are also offsite photographers Disney allows on property (but only at the resorts, I believe), but I'm not sure of their names.

Sounds good. Now, which would be the best location. I was thinking Poly. Hmmm.

We did the Poly in 2010, and BC in 2012. They were both great. We are doing the Poly again next month. It is our favorite resort and where we usually stay. BC is a close second choice!

We use Randy Chapman. Love him! I think it is $150 and you get all the pics on a CD. He alsoedits the pics. He spent a ton of time with us, more than 20 minutes.
