"I have been dying to post this all day. I had the honor of photographing the wedding of Taherrah & Andre this past Saturday evening at the Riu Ocho Rios (ROR). Wedding was absolutely beautiful, just I had figured it would be . . . photos to come soon! Sunday evening on my way down to photograph her & her bridesmaids for a fun, girls session, I was escorted off the property due to having a policy against professional photographers photographing there! They had taken photos of me while photographing this wedding & also the next morning during their TTD session. I had an issue with them back in April while there for some other weddings - they also had those photographs out.
I am upset that I didn’t get to say goodbye to my wonderful clients, or get to do her last session! Pisses me off to say the least. I wanted to post this as a PSA for any brides plannning to get married there, and don’t want to settle on having the resort photographer photograph your wedding!!!"
I'm sure Taherrah will give us more info when she gets back from her honeymoon, but since there are so many ROR brides, I wanted to pass the info along. I spoke to Robin tonight, and she was booked as a guest at ROR... scheduled to leave on Monday!

The whole situation is scarey if you ask me! They seem to make their policies up as they go, and if your photog gets escorted off property, you may not know what happened!
