PhotoSouvernir and Dreams Issue

Recommended Posts

worst case scenario maybe you can go with the resort photographer or another one for the wedding day, and book photosouvenir for a trash the dress session somewhere off the resort?

i read on another forum that Dreams is also having an issue with another photographer (severinphoto). After I saw her pics, which were unbelievable!!, I emailed her for availability. She replied stating Dreams had banished her because she doesn't PAY THEM as much as the current photog does! I think we need to plan a revolt -- we can't let these small-minded extortionists dictate what pics we are forced to look at for the rest of our lives. I've asked her to find out who the owner is, because obviously management are the villains here. I'll post updates as I get them.

I presume that Dreams will know/recognize the Photosouvenir staff?

 

I only ask, b/c our photogs, who flew in from the US, stayed at a neighboring resort and just walked down the beach and met us for the rehearsal dinner, wedding and day-after sessions and didn't have a problem -- and didn't have to go through the lobby/pay for day passes/etc.

 

Just a thought but it's risky if they know who the photogs are.

yeah these photogs used to work at Dreams for like 5 years or so. The photog also told me that when I meet with WC to get the day passes and they ask for the names, thats when they pretty much know....its a crazy situation, we'll see what happens.

I just left yesterday PPC and meet with severine yesterday. You shouldn't have a problem. She stated that its fixed and it shouldn't be a problem.

PS... They are great photographers and video people. Very impressed

Severine also emailed me and told me that the issue has been resolved!! I hope there wont be anymore hiccups along the way. I am waiting (still) to hear from Dreams.

Hopefully everything has been worked out and stays that way. I would get it in writing from the resort though, so that once you are down there, they won't turn around and say 'No, sorry. They aren't allowed here" Then you have something to go back on. At least they are working out their differences for everyone that is going down there and wanting to use both their services!

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
