    If Chandlyn emailed you, make sure you print that out and take the email with you or have her add it to the wedding contract or something. I would hate for you to get down there and there be an extra charge for using the outside florists!

      I am DEFINITELY planned on bringing copies of all my emails with Chandlyn, so there is no confusion when I get down there.

        Did anyone find out from Michael the photographer if there is a vendors fee? I really want to look into hiring the photographer from Negril.

            put your photographer on your guest list & make sure they are staying at the resort . . . shouldn't be a problem, but I could be wrong. Not sure what Heidi heard since she booked with me.

              I didn't email him because I hired Robin! She is a guest at the hotel for the minimum stay, so no problems. I have written permission from Riu and I will certainly be printing that email out and bringing it with me (just in case!)

                Hey ladies! I am bringing my own photographer from home. I contacted Michael directly to negotiate. I have read some some reviews where Photo Shop sabataged the photos because they have a contract with Riu that Riu is not suppose to breach. He told me that if I pay $150 and still hire them for my video it will not be a problem. I would recommend that you contact him if you are bringing your own photographer. He does not work directly for Riu, so you want to have an agreement in writing from him, not just Chandalyn. I would hate for any of you to spend the extra money to bring your own photographer, and then run into problems with Michael. He was very flexible with me.

                    Robin, I heard that people were walking in front of the cameras and even one case where they took the photographer's film! If I remember where I read that, I'll let you know, I honestly can't think of it right now!
