    Hi everyone,

    We've been trying to figure out which photograph to go with, and I've noticed that the Riu does have their own on-site photographer with reasonable prices. However, I have been warned that the quality may not be too great with on-site photographers. Unfortunately, everywhere else I've looked is out of our price range! Does anyone know anything at all about the quality of the photographer's work at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya

      I am getting married at Riu Palace Mexico on April 23. I am using the resort photographer Juan Carlos Magallon. We simply could not afford any of the photographers we found outside the resort, plus Riu charges $100 per outside vendor for the day. I was really worried about the quality and style of his photos, since he is so much cheaper than an outside photog. When I brought this up with the WC she got me in contact with him and he emailed me some of his pics. They are beautiful! I got really excited! I like a photojournalistic style, and he definitely surpassed my expectations. He works with Canon SLR digital cameras of 8 megapixels & MacBook Pro computers to edit. We also worked out a custom package with 150 photos on CD, although he takes many more pics than that, and a few prints, but no extras (like leather album, CD to music, etc). We are also only using him for 3 hours - pre-ceremony, ceremony, and post-ceremony - not the reception as we have an outside viedographer, Paul Schranke, coming in for that. (We found Paul on this forum and he is amazing!) Our photo package with Juan is costing us $700.
      If you pm me your email address, I will forward you the pics Juan sent me.

        Hi there,

        I'm getting married at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya as well and am wondering if the Riu Palace Mexico and the Riu Palace Riviera Maya use the same photographer?

          I'm not sure, but my guess is it depends on how many weddings are happening simultaneously. Since each resort uses the same WC, I'm sure they choose photographers who have similar styles.
