ROR Photographers!

Recommended Posts

So..I wanted my photos on my wedding day taken by Michael as I have heard so many good things about him. I got intouch with him and asked if i could book him personally, he asked me my details and said because i was having the 'royal package' and didnt want to buy the extra 200 odd photos, i couldnt have him! Im really gutted about this, as i really wanted him, Yes id buy the extra photos just so i could have Michael, but we dont have the money! He said i will have one of his colleagues to take them, does anybody know what his colleagues photography is like??

I'd appreciate any advice or photos anyone has had taken by them (not michaels work though)

Thanx Ladies! x

Hi!

Yes, Michael only does the really "big" packages - ie 200 pics or more - he also goes to Riu Montego Bay if there is a big package there and then his colleagues will do the Riu Ocho Rios weddings.

We had one of Michael's colleagues for the "pre-wedding" photos. At first I was really upset that Michael wouldnâ€t be joining us until the actual wedding…..but his colleague did a good job – we had him for ½ hour before the wedding and then him and Michael did the wedding (so they could get lots of shots from different angles). After the Ceremony we just had Michael but his colleague took pictures of our guests and these turned out beautiful. We did get the package of 200 pictures and we had almost 1000 to choose from!!

I am sure you wonâ€t be disappointed – all of the work at the Photo Shop is just great – and everyone is SUPER nice!

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Happy Planning!

Karen

It good to know that Michael's colleagues are good. The photo packages are expensive, so, I decided to go witha small package and will hopefully have a nice selection of photos to select from in the end.

I have read a few reviews where brides have booked a smaller package, assuming a photog other than Michael would be doing their pics. On their wedding day, Michael showed up and took their pics. I think they said he wasn't booked with any other wedding parties. So, that could end up happening for you as well!

I posted the price lists on this thread

 

We had one of Michaels assistants for our wedding and it was a surprise. We had been told we were getting Micheal but apparently there was a "mis-communication". Anyw'funay, we had Lincoln take our photos and they were very nice. They definately weren't as "fun" as Michael's (we got a photo shoot with Michael a few days after the wedding) and Michael is definately more of a real photographer than his assistant, but there pictures were still very nice. I would advise that if you know Michael isn't going to be your photographer, that you give your actual photographer some examples of fun photos that you would like to have. I simply asked mine to be spontaneous and creative and we got very nice photos...just not too creative.

 

good luck!! oh and if you want some examples of the difference between Lincoln's photos and Michael's photos just pm me with your email and I'll send some to you.

Thanks again and good to know. He seems really good!!

    • 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.
