    We actually didn't use the RIU photographer... To be honest, I wasn't that impressed w/ his pics, especially considering his prices, but to each her own. We just had some designated family take pictures and I "tried" to put together the best ones. So far, we have over 1000 of family pics that they dumped on kodakgallery under my name. If we got married at home, I would have had no problem paying a lot more for pics, but they would have been more the style that I wanted-cameo/documentary type. Good luck with whatever decision you make!

      I think your pics came out excellent without having used Michael. I honestly thought that you had a "professional" photog as opposed to family & friends. You also did a great job putting them together.

        Your wedding looked AMAZING!!!! You looked very beautiful! Your pictures just confirmed that I am absolutely going with just the beach and cover that you went with. Nothing beats that beautiful ocean in the background!

          I agree that they turned out great! I would have never expected that to be family pictures.

                  Wedding was at 1pm, then dinner at Mamee at 7, then seagrape from 8:30-11:30. We originally were planning on starting at 8pm, but most were finished with dinner at 8:30-8:45. The nice thing is that Mammee looks down to Seagrape, so a few went down early to set some things up.

                    Firstly Congratulations to you both, I am curious about the 3g you spent in
                    upgades as you didnt use the photographer would you mind sharing what these were . My son is getting married on March 4 so we are off there in two
                    weeks and any information would be great . Can you remember what the
                    photographer charges even though you didnt use him.
