      Email from Riu about fee for Photographer:

      Dear Heidi,

      Thank you for contacting RIU Sales Wedding Department

      What Michael stated in his e-mail is true, Should the photograher be a family member or friend travelling with them they are allowed to take pictures. A local photograher is allowed at fee of uS200 plus the cost for the day pass. This fee is payed to the Photoshop for the breach in contract.

      If you shall require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

      Warm Regards,

        I'm not sure what she meant by that. Are you hiring him for the videography? I don't think you should have to pay him!! My photgrapher is just saying she is a friend travelling with us. Would that work in your situation?

          I'm assuming since I will be on the guest list & staying at the resort - they don't have to know that I'm actually being paid . . . I'm just a friend with a fancy camera that is there celebrating the wedding with them.

              I asked Michael from Photo Shop if we could do a casual shoot before the wedding, since I was going to be paying a fee for an outside Photog. He said he would for an additional charge. The fee was just b/c another photog will be present. That is BS. I was also bummed because we were hoping to have a videographer for the ceremony and the disco. You can only book consecutive hours though. So I would have to pay for the ENTIRE day, just to get video for the 3 hours I wanted.

                From getting married at the resort and trying to do the same and also witnessing others trying to do the same, I would advise you to be prepared for an argument with Michael. He is very feisty. He will also make himself present at the wedding even though he is not invited and he will attempt to get better shots than you, even if that means getting in your way. The day of my wedding I actually witnessed him get into an argument with a photographer that was staying at the resort and was on the guest list. The groom ended up threatening him before he ended up leaving the wedding ceremony. Of course he still showing up at my wedding, but he didn't want 2 threats that day so he secretly told my photographer and videographer that he didn't want to see them at any other weddings at the resort. Chandlyn had no control over this, but I refused to pay him $200 when I personally did not have a contract with him.
                That is good information. I have an outside photgrapher as well and was wondering how it would turn out. I am worried I don't want him bothering us on our wedding day. I was going to hire him for the videography but I don't want to have to pay him $200.00 for not doing the photgraphy.

                  I can't belive all the problems that everyone is having with Michael. So you can't hire him for the videography unless you book the whole day

                    So I'm confused. What if I want no professional photog and I just have my family and quests take pictures. My sister had a professional photog at her wedding and then she handed every quest a throw away camera and they all took pictures and then returned the cameras to her and she had them developed. They were amazing. Each one was different and a different POV.
                    I don't want to have to pay some idiot 200 bucks NOT to take pictures at my wedding. Thats ridiculous!!.

                      You don't have to hire him for the whole day. You just have to hire him for consecutive hours. I wanted from 4-5 and from 9-11, but he won't do that. I would have to book for 4-11, which is out of my budget for videography. Bummer!!
