So my wedding is at Caesar's but I wanted to take some pictures outside at the Venetian near the canals. My photographer told me that the Venetian is good about getting permission in advance if you contact their PR department. So I did, and after getting the run around for a bit I received an email from Elaine stating "Due to our relationship with Cashman Photography, we are unable to allow any other professional photographers on site for wedding photos."
I asked her if the policy had changed recently, and told her that it was my understanding that with advance permission, photos were okay. She said "I can say with confidence that since I started working with the company 2.5 years ago, the policy has been in effect." She went on to say that if we do try to take photos security will ask us to leave.
Just wanted to let everyone know.
