    Can we use and outside photographer or do we have to use the one in the package? The last information I received from Riu said no outside vendors. But I thought I read some of you used others. Confusing?

      I am getting married at the Santa Fe in July. YES you can hire an outside photographer. You will have to arrange it ahead of time with your WC. You will have to pay a day pass for the photographer. Riu says no outside venors, but you just have to ask, and insist that you want someone else. Sandra was married there, and had an outside photographer.

        I thought she had, but I wanted to double check. Since I just received the list of rules. I wanted to see which ones could be broken.

          I would still use the photographer that comes with your package for other pictures. Take advantage of it, instead of taking pictures of our wedding he took pictures of us on the beach.

            I completely agree with Sandra. I just got married at the Riu Palace and hired an outside photographer (Bradley Fraser - Cabo Photography). I did have to pay for a day pass ($75.00). We used the photographer who came with the package for pix of the groom while he was getting ready (Bradley was with me). You can check out my pix here wedding Good Luck!

              That's a great idea thanks for the advice. Did you really like your Photographer? may I ask were they pricey? Did they also do a video? We are thinking about having it Profesionally video tapped for the party back home afterwards.

                I loved my photographer, Gilda Badillo was reliable, professional and she meant business! She took a bunch of pictures and was extremely creative. You should email her and get a quote from her. We didn't do a video, but talk to her about that also.

                  I loved my photographer as well! Bradley Fraser at Cabo Wedding Photography, Cabo San Lucas, Baja, Cabo Weddings, Los Cabos. He charges $350.00/ hour with a 4 hour minimum ($1400). He was incredible and delivered my pix to the hotel in just a couple of days. You can check out my pix here wedding .
                  I've heard such good things about Gilda, Juan, and Bradley that I think you are safe with whoever you choose. Good Luck!

                  P.S I didn't do video either, but I believe Bradley offers it.

                      Okay, I may need some help. Bradley is already booked and Gilda I have not heard back from. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
