ROR Outside Photographer / Jamaica Photographers

Recommended Posts

I've been searching through the previous reviews and posts and am still a bit confused on using an outside photographer at ROR.

 

It's my understanding that if using an outside photographer who is a guest staying at the hotel then the fee (in the past at least) is $200 + videography services.

 

However, what happens if you use a photographer from Jamaica? Do you just need a day pass or is there an additional fee?

 

Sorry as I'm a 2009 bride I still haven't been able to officially book my wedding and thus can't contact Chandyln directly for these questions. But as were now less than a year away I would like to start setting our budget.

 

Also, has anyone used a photographer from Jamaica that they would or would not recommend? I was looking at Brian Nejedly... any thoughts?

It's my understanding that at most resorts, if your photographer is staying as a guest, there are no fees. If you are using an outside photographer that is local, than you have to pay the fees because they aren't at the resort so they would need a pass.

That is my understanding as well. Michael @ Photoshop will NOT know you are getting married there unless you arrange to hire him. Or if you bought the Royal or Caprice packages that come with photography.

That is my understanding as well, and I have it in writing from the Wedding Sales Coordinator @ ROR. Michael @ Photoshop will NOT know you are getting married there unless you arrange to hire him. Or if you bought the Royal or Caprice packages that come with photography.

Hi. I actually have emailed with Michael about this. If you use an outside photographer (and he/she is not a guest) then you must pay Michael a $200 contract breakage fee + the cost of the day pass.

 

I am using an outside photographer ... the attorney in me is having a hard time coming to grips with paying Michael the $200 fee, as I have no contract with him to "break." Not sure how I'm going to deal with that one yet.

You don't owe him anything. Just tell him you don't owe him anything because you have no contract with him. I don't think using him is part of any contract you have with the resort. The resort probably has a contract with him and you not using him would be a breach of contract for the resort. That's not your problem though. The resorts need to own up to the fact that not all their brides are going to want to use the photographer they have a contract with.

 

I would trust your attorney instincts. He's just telling you this so he can make some money.

 

If the resort asks, tell them you don't need a photographer and leave it at that. Is your photographer staying at the resort? If not, just get a day pass for him/her.

Good to hear! Just want to clarify though... are you being charged the $200 breach of contact fee? Are you using him for videograph?

I leave in 5 days. We decided to fly our own photographer down with us for the week. I am not paying Michael the $200.00. I don't think it is fair to have to pay $200.00 for breaking a contract when I didn't have on in the first place. I will let you know how this works when I get back!!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
