Karisma Resorts and Claudia Rodrigez....I'm confused!!
Posted 07 August 2008 - 06:05 PM
Ok so I am really confused!! Today I spoke with the wc that I am working with from the Azul Fives (Karisma resorts) and I was told that Claudia Rodrigez is on the preferred list of vendors for all of the Karisma resorts, which would wave the $500 outside vendor fee if she were to be our photographer.
I was super excited about saving the extra $500.
Well today I received an email back from Claudia that said this..."we do have an agreement with Karisma resort to work on their properties BUT the rates to work there are a little different from the ones we apply in other resorts".
I am so bummed and confused! My FI and I already thought it was streching our budget by paying the $3,350 for 8 hours. But I was totally willing to pay that because I love Claudia Rodrigez's work!!! So now I am quoted $4,235 for 8 hours..that's almost $900 more!! I'm sure this has been an issue before with other brides! I'm just curious if anyone here knows why they charge more for Karisma resorts?? I'm so sad!!!

400 digital images in High Resolution on Cdâ€™s
gift of 250 printed 4x6 pictures

When I was quoted it wasn't specified whether it was a special rate for Karisma.
Maybe someone who has had a recent quote for another resort can also chime in.
$900 is a ton of money....I hate my resort sometimes!

You'd think because you were a preferred bride...by hosting your wedding with that preferred hotel...using that preferred photography, you'd surely get some kind of PREFERRED freakin rate!
I'd have expected them to charge you less, not more.
Hopefully someone can help out!

I'm sorry that you have to deal with Karisma and their constantly changing vendor rules and regulations. Frustrating!

I'm almost positive the reason claudias rates are different for Karisma resorts is because they are charging her to be a vendor there, so in turn, she has to pass this cost on to her clients.

â€¢ Non Mexican Citizen: Mexican working visa, FM2 or FM3, RFC, also a 3 nights hotel stay for vendor or $500.00 US outside vendor charge...
SO now what?!!
Does anyone know what FM3,RFC, or FM2 mean..or how to go about getting a Mexican working visa (sounds difficult to me)?
