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

BUT THEN after we ate we headed to the disco (we rented it for 2 hours) and a bellhop came in and tried to pull our photog out of the disco! And kept telling her it was a life or death situation and he had to know her room number. I'm not sure how long this had been going on before I saw it so I went over and asked what was going on and he said his boss sent him to find out what her room number was b/c they had a picture of her taking pictures at another wedding the day before. I asked if Michael sent him and he said no his boss at the front desk sent him. I told him she was a guest at my wedding and he needed to get out (not in that nice of words though) he then told me that he was caught drinking on the job the day before and his boss told him he would look the other way about that if he could find out what her room number was. That sounded like a crock to me and even if it was true that was not my problem. He left and we didn't have any problems after that but I really had to get a nasty attitude with him. the whole thing was so out of line. So just beware!!

Hey honey! Just walked in my door - I need for you to make a post on the BDW forum to warn all girls that are planning on bringing in outside photog & any destination wedding photogs that have weddings booked there.
I have never in my life been as scared as I was yesterday evening (my last night at the resort) - the goons at the Photoshop had one of the bellboys come threaten me during (another bride's) reception in the disco. He was trying to pull me out, demanding my room #, etc. Was so glad it was my last day there & would be leaving this am. I am going to lodging a formal complaint with the main office of the RIU, and so is the bride - she was livid!!!
I'll also put out there that we had ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS AT ALL with Michael or Photoshop. We booked a FREE package - and Michael is not notified of those weddings. HOpefully, if you book the free package and bring an outside photographer nobody will bother you...

And being totally selfish, I have to say that I'm glad I did not decide to use Robin (I was considering it for awhile) and only because I don't want her to have to go back to the ROR. I wouldn't want to if I were her.

I felt worse for Robin b/c she couldn't relax after that. That was really what i was most angry about- they have no right to harass a paying guest.

We didnâ€™t have any problem with Michael. He called at the room the day of the wedding to ask us if we were interested in is service. I told him that we had family to take picture for us. He said: ok and have a great wedding. He was very professional.
