    Hi future"Mrs." I have seen on another wedding site that brides ask for certain photos to be taken. I need help with this one. I am having a DW in Ocho Rios at the Riu 10/25/08 and their wedding package includes a photographer. Do I let him take the pictures or do I request certain pictures? If so, which one do I request?

      Its best to only request a few and let the photographer do what they do best! I know at my wedding I am requesting a few specific family photos (like seperate ones with my parents, no group shot since they are divorced, and a lot with our son) other than that though I am basically just letting her do what she thinks is best. They usually always do the "standard" shots.

        If it's a resort photographer I would probably give him a basic list to take. I regret not telling my photographer what pics I wanted. I never got a full group picture and the just groom pictures.

          I'm using the same photographer at RIU. I wasn't thrilled with his work at first, but I've seen more recent photos and am happier. I think you just need to ask him for what you want. I'll have him do the standard shots and then give him a basic list of the photos I definitely want.

            Because it is a resort photographer be very clear, and I would write them down. I told my photographer I wanted mostly pictures of my kids, and of us and the kids. He didn't pay any attention and I was so busy I never took notice. I don't have one picture of Everton, Liam, and me alone. I am so upset Liam should have had a picture of his parents and him on our weddig day. He also only took 2 pictures of the kids alone, one family pic, and he took one of Kenda, one of Liam, and one of Timothy alone he forgot the other kids, he also forgot my kids in Evertons family picture, even Liam and Bria. I didn't relize until I was choosing my pictures. These resort photographers are doing a job, and that is how they look at it, so really think about whats important to you.
