      I just wanted to update you on the photography situation. I spoke with Claudia about my situation and the resort photographer is definitely taking advantage of brides. The resort told me that my ONLY option was to use Arrecife Studio........they told Claudia that I had changed my mind and wanted to use the resort photographer. NOT THE CASE!
      I have sent them an email stating that I want to keep my booking with Claudia Rodriguez or else I will be looking for a new resort.
      It is very unfortunate that the photo studio is giving Bahia Principe a bad image. I feel betrayed and upset that they aren't being honest.

        Keira! You go girl! Have a wonderful time! I hope your wedding is beautiful and everything you have ever dreamed of!

        Claudia sent me that email last night and we have arranged to have a phone conversation on Sunday. Then I will likely be having a conversation with the resort. Not only is the resort being very unprofessional in how they are managing this, but their photographer is obviously not a professional....no website, no price list and now lying to us and a vendor. Not impressed.

        I will let you know if I get more info.

            Hey Ladies, it's been a while since i've logged on. Hello to all the new Bahia brides.

            I can't believe the drama going on with the photographer situation! We put down a deposit with Claudia back in June, and this is the first i've heard anything about the change in outside vendors. I hope it works out for us!

            Here's a site I found that lists restaurants at the Gran Bahia Complex. We were given our choice of 2 restaurants, since we were the first wedding booked that day. If you're only given one option, it might be because another bride had booked before you. Our travel agent told us there are maximum 2 weddings per resort / day.

              I'm sorry you girls are going through all that trouble with the food and the photographers. I will see what I can find out when I have my meeting with Karla.
              That is beyond awesome your time is already here. Have an amazing time!

                  If the resort photographer hasn't contacted you then you will be fine with Claudia. (Which will be awesome!)
                  This just further shows how unprofessional and inconsistent they are being with their new policy. They are strictly enforcing it with some and then not even mentioning it to others.

                  I'm so sorry you guys are going through this. It's not fair and it sounds just terrible! I really hope that you guys can figure this out. Claudia is a great photographer and this is just a darn shame.

                    New Coba bride here.

                    I'm so sorry to hear some of you are really having a tough time with the photography fine print! I'm so glad one of our friends and guests is a photographer. He's doing our pictures for free as his gift to us!
