That just seems ridiculous. Why couldn't you hire him for 2 different functions? I mean someone else could hire him from 4-5 and then another person could hire him from 9-11, so why couldn't he do that for the same person? He seems like trouble to me. I guess that is one good thing out of me not being a Riu bride! Finally, cuz I needed one thing!

I seem sort of behind because I have not contacted Chandy at all and my wedding is in June. My TA says that as of now, no details are needing to be made as of yet. So I am just getting all of my ideas together.

You need to at least make your dinner reservation and reserve the disco. There are 3 weddings/day, so if they get to it first, you will have to replan.

I agree with Brittney, you should definitely contact Chandlyn soon to reserve your dinner!

For those of you who ARE going with Michael as your photographer... did you book him in advance? I am just going with the free package and adding my upgrades from there, so I emailed him asking if I could book him now to appear at my Feb 12 wedding, and this was his response:

 

Hello Janelle,

 

You don´t really need to book but if you want to, we would make a remote credit card charge and you would have booked by this then.

Let me know!

Kind regards

Michael

 

Ummm..... I'm confused!! Do I have to book or will he just appear anyway? I dont really want to have him charge my credit card already! And he doesnt mention WHAT the credit card charge amount would be? Anyone else have any insight into this? I emailed him back asking what the amount of the charge would be and have received no response... been a couple of weeks now...

The photo packages have changed as I found out last week. No you dont need to book online now, but yes you need to stop by the photo shop prior to the wedding and look over the packages. For the "free" wedding you PAY 150.00 US for a photographer to come to your wedding Paid prior to the wedding, BUT you get 10 pictures included in that price. You can buy more, we only bought 2 at 8.00 each. For the royal package you DONT pay anything for the photographers fees BUT YOU GET NO PICTURES INCLUDED. You get 10 free WITH A Purchase of 24 pictures and 24 pictures cost 240.00. This is the only reason why we changed from a royal package to the free wedding.

I emailed him a few months ago and he said I didn't have to do anything prior to my arrival at the resort. After we get there, then we go meet with him and figure it all out. I wouldn't give him your credit card info now, I think you'll be fine if you wait til you get there.

Thanks for the advice ladies! I'll try emailing him again and just tell him what I would like (videographer as well) and let him know I will firm up the details with him once there.

Jerzzygirl - that's interesting about the fee and package changes.. hmmmm....
