I've gotten a response from Michael, Riu's Photographer

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen any contracts or anything.... but if you're booking teh Free Wedding Package there is no mention of a photographer. Therefore, we shouldn't have any contract with him... right?

I think it's more that he has a contract with the hotel to photograph all their weddings. So if you hire someone else, he gets $150 for lost revenue.

Keep fighting this & maybe hotels with change how they do things.

Anyone have links to his website? I've like to see his work.

I think this needs to be spelled out to any potential bride before signing any contract AND that it HAS to be in the contract -- b/c if you don't know about it, they can not uphold you it.

 

Ridiculous.

That's contradicting a previous posters information from Chandlyn where she said if your photographer is a guest of the hotel than you can have them photograph your wedding. I don't know where it is in here but I've read it.

Does anyone have communication going with Chandlyn to confirm this?

The photographer could always be a friend/guest that just happens to have a nice camera! Unless it is a photographer from the area, I'm pretty sure they know who they are. Otherwise, they can't tell your guests not to take pics. That is so unfair.

 

Hope you get this straightened out.

Absolutely not! I have an email from Carolina, Wedding Sales Dept, saying explicitly that I am allowed to use a US photographer as long as the photographer stays the minimum stay at the resort. Michael can't tell me what the resort's policies are. He doesn't work for the Riu. I am confident in the fact that the resort has told me I am allowed to have an oustide photographer.

These were the terms:
1. If the photographer is local to Jamaica, you have to pay the breach in contact fee to Michael, and pay for a day pass
2. If the photographer is from out of the country - they need to stay at the resort for the minimum stay (3 nightS)
