Thanks Chloe: That information is very helpful. And hopefully will be cheaper than the $400 fee.

 

So I'd just need to book a room for my photographer and his assistant? Do I need to tell the resort what my plans are?

 

Has anyone else done this? I just don't want the resort to object to them taking pictures, once I hire the photographer and pay for the room.

 

Maybe I'm worrying too much, but I just don't want to waste money if the resort sees through my plan.

Carrie- I know brides on BDW have done this, but it has been a while since they posted about it so I don't know if anything has changed

 

Is your photog from the Riviera Maya area? Maybe ask them when is the last time they did a session at RPRM and get a feel for it...

Carrie-Have you received anything from the WC's at the resort yet? I see that your wedding is in June and I am just anxious to see what they email you beforehand. I guess I am just nervous because I haven't heard anything yet. Let me know =)

No I haven't heard anything from the resort other than as a reply to what I have sent them. I've sent two emails and both times they've answered my questions and then asked that I wait until 1 to 2 months before hand to arrange all the details.

 

However, I don't want to wait that long to lock in my photographer. I already feel like I'm a little behind, but I'm getting married on a Monday and so far almost every photographer that I've contacted has been available.

There must be some way around this?

Thanks for your input!
Hi Carrie,
I brought my own photographer (flew him down, paid for his stay) and his pictures didnt compare to the pics that the photographer from the Riu took!
Carlos is really good, and If I could do it all over again, I would have just stayed with the Hotel's PHotographer. Im will save you money and you can always purchase more pics if it goes over your package deal.

He is the Riu's exclusive photographer and he knows the hotel and knows where all the money shots are at.

You may want to reconsider and stay with him....Unless you've seen the other photographers work and its off the hook!!!

Good Luck with that!

I'm glad that you had a good experience with the resort's photographer. That's good to hear.

 

Here are my main issues: I have seen some local photographers with outstanding pictures and reasonable rates. I haven't seen much of the resort photograher's work. The resort's package only includes one hour before the ceremony, during the ceremony, and one hour after. For close to the same price, I can get a pretty sweet photographer for 5 or 6 hours. I just need to figure out how to get him on to the resort.

hi carrieo-

i am getting married at the rprm and i am using a del sol photographer and i have it in writing that i can have an outside vendor come in to take the pictures for 100 dollars. I also have guests coming that are staying at their time shares for 65 dollars that day. i know what you mean about the photographer~ you dont want to have second rate photos so make sure you get that rate! i actually mentioned he was a "close" friend of mine and that he HAD to do if for us (the photographer). del Sol Photography

i hope this helps! trust me, i will go bridezilla if i dont get what i want!! i am having 40 ppl stay at this hotel for my wedding so i want nothing less than top notch service!!! if you need any other info let me know, i will be getting what i want and more! thats just me wink.gif

That's so great to hear; thanks for chiming in. I agree that we all should get what we want. I'm going to try to work out a similar deal with the resort. We have 40 people coming too, so hopefully that will be leverage. What a great photographer you hired. I can't wait to see your pictures. When is your wedding?

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
