    Hi all.
    I am getting married at ROR on 2nd feb 2009, we are there from 27th jan till 10th feb. I am just wondering how long do the photos take, I am having a reception when I get home and would like to know if the photos are normally ready before you leave or do they send them on? I would love to show my photos at our home reception. The same also with the dvd.
    Many Thanks

      I remember a few ROR brides saying that you get to review your pics the day after your wedding & I guess depending on how many you pick, you may be able to get the disc before you leave.
      If you do a search of ROR wedding reviews, you can look at the posts of the past ROR brides who used Michael. Some were able to get their discs before they left & some had them mailed home.

      In terms of the video, we got our DVD the day after the wedding.

      Since your wedding is on the 2nd & you're not leaving till the 10th, I'd think that you're ok & should be able to take your disc home.
      You can always email Michael & ask him what his turn around time is.

        You will be fine. I think that the resort photographer has the pics ready to view the next day and edited and ready for you the following day. Same with the DVD. You have 8 days after your wedding which is plenty of time!

            Do you have to use the resort photographer or do they allow you bring in another local one?

              This has been a hot topic for the ROR brides. Initially it was said that you did not have to use the resort photographer & that you could bring in an outside photographer, but they have to be a guest of yours & stay at the resort. If they do not stay at the resort, then they have to have a day pass. Since then, some ROR brides have had problems with bringing outside photographers.

              If this is something that you are thinking about doing, I strongly suggest that you ask Chandlyn, or the Director of Wedding Sales, what their policy is regarding using an outside photographer. If they advise you that you can have an outside photographer, then make sure to keep that email for future refernce and in case you have any problems when you arrive.

                  Yes, I believe they are edited before you go look at them.
                  I remember past brides said that if there was something in the picture that they wanted taken out, Michael would edit the picture.

                    Thanks for the update, pictures are very important to me and since it seems that they are not allowing local outside photgographers this is a concern.

                      I don't think any other photographers have had a problem except for the one that many of us shared. I think she encountered difficulties because she had done about 4 weddings there in a 2 week span.

                      If you really want to have your own photographer, just make sure that you get their policy in writing. I definitely do not want to deter you, but just want to make sure that you are well informed. ROR was a wonderful resort & we had an amazing time.
