    Hi All,

    I'm getting married in December on the Disney Wonder. We're getting married on Castaway Cay and using the wedding photographer Disney provides. Does anyone have sample pictures? Please only post those who have used the Disney wedding photographer :)

    There are no Disney Fine Art Photographers aboard the Disney Cruise Line. Disney contracts with an outside vendor for photography through Shutters on the ships. There have been enough horror stories of the hit-or-miss quality of their work on this board that the brides here mostly bring their own photographers. I dug up the few interviews I have with brides who used Shutters — photos are in each post:

    Everyone's experience will be different but having used the onboard photographer for us it was a big mistake. Wedding/Event photography is very different to the portrait style point & shoot photography they do on a daily basis.
    Our photographer had never photographed a wedding before and our photos were really disappointing, as they are external contractors to Disney this meant very little could be done to hold them accountable when we were unhappy.

    I concur, I was not pleased at all with my DCL wedding photographs. I'd love to have a do-over in the wedding photograph department!
