I thought I replied to this thread and I guess I didn't. I did have a thread with the photos from Michael but I organized my photobucket and the links no longer work! AHH! I used Michael and I loved him! He's the sweetest ever and hilarious to work with. I have a wedding slide show but it includes pics from the resort and our wedding. If you want to sit through it I'll post the link. Michael's photos are in there as well. I ended up getting 10 on a cd and then having him print a bunch to hang. Obviously those I can't share b/c they're in frames (on my to do list) but they are gorgeous! If I had to do it over even with all the bad rap he gets I would choose him again!

ETA: It sounds like I only got 10 photos HAHA...I got a ton of photos from him he took hundreds. Plus he keeps all his photos indefinitely and said I could always order more later. So thats a plus if you're trying to save money now, you can always get more later!

P.S. What is your first name?!?! Thanks!
We only had 7 of us and 3 were kids. I tried to get my DH to post the video on youtube but that hasn't happened yet. In the video it starts with a few pictures to music (that we picked and brought with us) and then it shows me walking down the isle and the whole ceremony. Then it has us taking pictures after the ceremony, this is also to music. I think they did a great job! The transitions are good and we pick the music so of course we like that. I will try again to get him to post it. I think the problem is that it is too big to fit on youtube. I did find one before we left because I wanted to see what $300 was getting me, but it was choppy. If you go to youtube and type in ROR jamaica wedding there are lots of clips. This may help.

Oh sorry I'm Lindsey. We are in St. Louis Missouri.

I hope this helps! I will try and figure a way for you to see the video. It may take me a little bit. Im not the computer person, my DH is.

Oh I forgot to tell you that you don't have to make a decision until you get there. We were sure we wanted it before. But I bet if you ask they will show you samples when you get there. I asked them to send me a clip or something but they said it was too big but we could talk when we got there. Everything is NO PROBLEM in Jamaica!! If you do get the video you will get to watch it before you leave. They give you a DVD player in your room to borrow.

We just got back and we also used Michael. I'm happy with our choice. Like some have said, the pictures are not as creative and stunning as some of the photographers here on the forum, but they worked for me. In my review I said that I wish we did some more photos with better poses, but that was totally my fault because I really rushed Michael (I hate pictures and just wanted to get them done so I could go hang out with my guests). We had the Classic package which was $180 I think. I added 4 hours to the package, which was $70/hour. He came to my room to get pics of me and my bridesmaids before the ceremony, went to the ceremony and cocktail hour with us, then stayed til about halfway through the reception. We got 10 prints before we left and he gave me a CD with all of the 952 pictures that he took. I still have to look through them all and decide which ones I want. Once I decide, I can email him and he will edit those pics and mail me a CD with the high-resolution pics. I could have done it down there, but I didn't feel like spending my vacation sitting in his office looking through them. Overall, I think Photoshop was a great choice for us.

Hey girl, try putting your video on vimeo...it's Vimeo, Video Sharing For You. They let you have a longer video on there. I put my slideshow which is 15 minutes long on there. Youtube has a timelimit and stuff. Try that and see if it works!

I didn't realize it either until Mike was bitching about looking at them after 20 minutes and Michael let us know it was an option. Seriously we would have been there for 4 hours looking at them, so I'm happy he offered it.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
