Re: Warning ROR - *update in post #7*

Recommended Posts

Taheerah, I can't believe that all of this happened on your special day. Despite the drama, you still sound upbeat about Riu and I'm sure that your day was lovely! can't wait to read your review and see pics.

 

Riu should be ashamed of themselves. This is a major thing that can deter future buisness!

This has got me worried for my wedding in January when I'm planning on bringing down a photographer. He hasn't been there before so I'm hoping that will help things, and he and his wife are staying the whole week, have booked with our package etc, so I'm going to claim that he's a friend that has offered to take pictures if questioned. Wondering if I should send an e-mail to the Riu Wedding office and get the "permission" e-mail that I've seen from others. I'll give him a copy to carry with him at all times!

 

Glad to hear that your wedding went well otherwise and I hope that Robin's not too upset about the whole thing.

 

The Riu really needs to sort out this issue. Keep us updated.

He also informed me that it could not have been anyone from the photoshop that approached Robin because the Photoshop was closed and they are not there on Sundays.

I don't want Riu Ocho Rios to lose business because of an incident that may have occurred. The resort is a beautiful location for any occassion and the wedding coordinator is a wonderful person to work with.

Michael went on to further state that although he does not like other photographers on the resort because it takes business away from him, he has no control over other photographers being there. He also stated that he has to pay rent to be there and he is nothing but a vendor at the resort. Like I said he was a complete gentleman about the whole conversation. He told me that I should speak with management at Riu and he gave me the hotel number to contact. I will keep everyone updated on this situation (if anyone cares to know).
So Riu management just escorted Robin off the premises cuz they felt like ithuh.gif Yeah, ok! For some reason I just don't believe that. Who else would complain about her being there, as a photographer, but Michael or someone else at Photoshop?? We all of have plenty of emails that state that outside photographers are allowed, yet, this happened. I just don't get it! Make sure you keep us updated.

Also, I'm glad to know that this did not ruin your wedding day!

Don't worry about having an outside photographer. At my wedding I also had a outside videographer and there was another photographer (family friend) there as well and there were no problems.

It is still unfortunate what happened to Robin during her stay for my wedding but I guess it was because she was a familiar face. I really can't explain what happened. The resort gave me absolutely no problems with my other professionals that were there.

No worries!!!
