      I know that they have been in the middle of a price change. I may have contacted him before he increased his prices.

        his prices have not increased yet. Michael told me they should be changing in a few weeks... anyway my wedding is before yours; you think we'd get the same rate, right?!

          That does seem crazy. Why don't you send him an e-mail and ask if you could pay only $150, since you are also adding the videography. You shouldn't have to pay the extra $50 if his prices have not changed yet. Let me see if I can find the e-mail I sent him.

            Heidi...Here are the e-mails with Michael. His responses are bolded. Let me know if you need anything else.

            Hello! I understand that you have a contract with RIU OchoRios for all wedding picturs. My fiancee and I would really like to bring the photographer from home that we have been working with. I wanted to see if there was any way that we could ngotiate to make that happen. We would still be interested in using you for our wedding video. Please let me know if ther are any terms in which we could make this happen. I would really appreciate your help.



            due to hotel and PHOTOSHOP restrictions, outside professional
            photographers are not allowed to work on the property ground.

            I can offer you to arrange the basic package with us (US 150$) and I
            would then arrange your favourite photographer to be allowed to take
            pictures.

            Do you like that agreement?




            I understand that you have an agreement with the hotel. Would you allow another photographer to come if e still paid you the $150 package and book you for videography. I do understand that you are trying to
            make a living. I would really appreciate any lexibilty here. The photographer would be staying at RIU.

            like I stated it in my answer from this morning, I would allow this
            with
            the booking of the basic package of US150 US
            and vbideography.

            Lets get together when you reach the property - lets meet at the
            PHOTOSHOP and finalize it then!

              Question for all of the ROR brides... Is anyone using the resort photographer? I feel like I am the only one and am now nervous about it. Pictures were never that important to me, but reading all these posts and looking at the professional photographers pics on here are making me change my mind.

                I personally would not have been happy with Michael, but photpgraphy was the most important thing to me. I almost didn't have a DW, because I thought my photographer only shot local. If photography is not the most important thing to you, you will be fine with Michael. Just make sure that your are very clear about what you want. From the pictures I have seen, he did the best when brides communicated with him, rather than just letting him do his own thing. You will also need to consider how much time you want on your wedding day. Since they do 3 weddings a day, you will not be able to have him for the day.

                  I'm with you...I planned on using the resort photographer! I really don't think his work is so bad that I would incur any additional expense. I would rather spend more money in another area, but that's just me...I'm an accountant :)

                    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 just can't believe that they would remove a hotel guest from the grounds that is staying on property. I could be wrong though. Heidi & Taherrah - I'd definetely follow up with Chandlyn on this as soon as possible.

                      Thanks for your responses girls. I had always planned on using the resort photographer, but with so many on this forum using outside photographers, I started to worry that I wasn't doing the right thing. Now I feel better about my decision and will stop stressing Also, I'm definitely making a list of the pictures I want. Mo - I think I know what bride you're talking about who loved her pics but that I didn't...I did look like that was what she asked for.
