You know what's funny, my original wedding date at the Riu was February 6th!! But we have guests flying out of Calgary as well as we WERE going to have my fiance's family flying out of Halifax because they live in New Brunswick... anyway, Sunquest CANCELLED that flight out of Halifax so we had to move everyone to the NEXT week in the hopes that we could all fly out of places near us. Then Sunquest AGAIN cancelled the new flight but I wasnt about to reschedule the wedding a 2nd time so now the East coast guests will have to fly out of Toronto... Bit of a long story there, sorry! Anyway, that would be very neat if you will still be at the resort when we arrive!! I live in Grande Prairie, where are you?
    hehehe it was for you!! We are flying out of Vancouver January 26. Some of our guest are coming out a week before the actual wedding week. We wanted to go down early to decide on the last minute details so we weren't doing that while our guests are there. We leave Saturday Feb 9th What day do you arrive to Jamaica? We might actually get to meet. I wonder if our guests will be on the same flight. That would explain why the flight is just about sold out already. I know it picks up in Vancouver then does a stop off in Calgary to pick up you Albertans, then off to Jamaica!!

              Well THAT didn't go well at all! This is what I got from Michael (in bold and in red):

              Please note that no other professional photographer or videographer (neither from Jamaica nor any other part in the world) is allowed to work on the property due to the contract I have with RIU as a seperate company - every violation of this issue is not permitted and the outside photographers/videographers can & will be removed from the wedding site after identified. The hotel and the PHOTOSHOP are monitoring that closely together and some outside photographers/ videographers have already been removed. Pictures have been taken of them so that they are known as Professionals already


              But I did get written permission from the Riu. ANy ideas of what my next step should be??

                Ah, five minutes later, I got another email with this:

                For the use of your own photographer, there is a charge of US$ 200 for the breach of the contract which we have with the hotel.

                  Did you send him the email from the hotel saying you got permission? I would send that to him. You shouldn't have to pay $200.00. You could just tell him it is a friend of yours offering to do it for free. They can't take away pictures and cameras or they would be taking everyones cameras. Think of how many guests will be snapping pictures. He doesn't need to know you are paying for it.

                    Wow, it seems like Michael can be very mean.

                    Heidi are you going to pay the vendors fee or contact Riu again and see what they say?

                    He sounds as if he is playing no games and will have the photographers removed from the resort. What should we do?

                      I am bringing my own phototgrapher. I am paying Michael $150 and having him do my videography. This did not bother me at all because I put myself in his shoes. He probably does all of his business with Riu Ocho Rios. That is why he put a contract in place with the resort. Anytime someone brings in their own photographer, it affects him. I did not want to screw anyone over by bringing my own photographer. He is just trying to earn a living. Now I do not agree with the way he handles things if you do not negotiate. I think it is very unprofessional.
