    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 wouldn’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 won’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!

            Hello ladies!
            Do any of you know the web site to look at the photo prices for Michael, etc...?

              Not sure if there are prices on there. We didn't use him. You can get a good idea of costs from the girls that did use him though.

                  I have been on the website and I can't seem to find the prices anywhere. Where on the website are they?

                    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.

                      Hi karen

                      Your phtos are beautiful - you all look amazing. I wanted to ask you - did you do the free wedding package an upgrades - I know Michaels packages depend on what wedding package you did - do you get to bring home negatives
                      i am trying to decide what times to book him
                      what did you do?
                      Thanks again and good to know. He seems really good!!
