I was just trying to get some info. Hoping someone might have some experience that could help. If someone is bringing in a photographer from abroad to photograph their wedding, what sort of procedure do they need to follow? Do they need to get a permit from the Film Commission or Immigration? Thanks in advance.

OK. I just spoke to a long time professional photographer in Belize and he tells me that permission is required from the Film Commission. Interesting information and good news for local photographers if it is enforced.

With the superb photographers who live here that know this country inside and out, the tides, the light, the best spots, why anyone would want to bring in someone who doesn't is beyond me!!

I agree, and, they will also need a work permit

That's so true MathieusDeli. Of course we're biased, but there really are top notch photographers here on Ambergris Caye and on the mainland. The other great thing about the photographers here is that they vary in style so greatly - it gives the client a real choice in terms of their own personal taste.

I didn't know that cracked up, but it makes sense. I wonder if the Film Commission organises that. I also have to admit that I don't mind if people do bring their own photographers at all as long as I like their photos smile and they make Belize look as spectacular as it truly is. Good competition makes sure that we keep raising the bar.
