I just received notice from Melia, that they will be charging an additional $1000 to use an outside vendor for photography. Because of this, I will no longer be able to use your services for our wedding. Please see information below:
Receive our warmest regards form Melia Caribe Tropical.
Please note that as of May 1st 2009 any photographer that decides to work with any of our guests and use our hotel venue and or premises for commercial Photographs will need to purchase a mandatory lease of copyright.
This right will be granted on a day to day basis and should be acquired Prior to the Photo shoot. Price for each copyright lease is granted @ US$ 1,000. Please note that this right will only be granted and should only be paid by photographers who wish to use our premises for income purposes.
