Photography at the Riu Palace - Personal Friend Taking Photos

Recommended Posts

So I read the thread regarding to photography and professional people coming from off site but what about if one of my guests is going to be taking photoshuh.gif I know it seems a dumb question to ask but she will be right in the action as much as possible and taking our photos after the ceremony on the beach etc. Do you think they would be upset about this? I would rather her take pictures because she will take 10 times the amount that anyone else will and I will get them all.

You might want to ask the Riu. Generally this sort of thing isn't a problem unless the other person taking photos has a professional level camera and lenses... funny how that works huh? lol

I think as long as she is a paying guest there should be no problem. Are you getting pics with your package? When I first booked I was going to and I was just going to have them do the guys getting ready. Then we decided to bring our own and went with the classic package. I had 26 guest and they were fine with it.

i would think it's fine too since she is a paying guest. they can not tell your friend that she is not allowed to take pictures, know what I mean? She's staying there and she is your friend. Wow, your wedding day is so soon! Can't wait to see your pics when you come back!

Kelly C - we are doing the same thing. The hotel photographer will do our ceremony pictures and then our friend will do all others such as the guys getting ready and the girls getting ready. The best part is that she will be with us all the time so we should have some nightclub ones too which will be great!

Lisa - we are soooo excited. We fly out Sunday morning at like 6:30 AM!!!

I don't think it should be a problem. I am getting married at the Riu Santa Fe and they know I will be having a separate photographer besides the resorts, they just requested that I pay the day pass, which I have no problem with. Seeing as the person you want to photograph your wedding is staying at the resort, it shouldn't be a problem at all.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
