I met gloria the other day and she is so nice and friendly. I am not nervous about anything at all. I cannot get over how beautiful it is here. the food and drinks are wonderful.  when i return, i will write up about the wedding.

Hey Everyone.     I have recently heard that the Excellence Riviera Cancun is charging $500USD per external photographer.  Has anyone else got this answer from them?  I've photographed alot of weddings there and  in the past they have required just day passes for each photographer.  I'd be surprised if it has changed so drastically but am curious to find out...   I have heard about this from other resorts too but have yet to confirm it.   Any information you have would help. Thanks.

Yep, unfortunately they do charge $500 for outside vendors. It really sucks :(

$500? when I was quoted when booking they said it was a $200 vendor fee. Being that I have it in writing and have all of Golria's emails will they honor the price agreed on?

They should definitely honor what they quoted...you should ask her and tell us what she says! I would die if I only had to pay $200!!! - I was not happy with the $500 fee they quoted me but I didn't care for their in house photographer :(

OK ladies, I'm getting really excited!!! I can't believe my wedding is only 3 1/2 weeks away!! YIKES! Maybe I will get my OOT bags put together tonight so I can post them for you ladies...I'm such a procrastinator :)

 

Anyone do a boudoir shoot for their fiance? I am doing one next week...sooo nervous but very excited! I've never done anything like this and I think my fiance will be really surprised. I just decided to do it last minute, I don't know what has gotten into me!

 

I'm so burnt out at work right now...just dying to be on the beach with my awesome friends and family (and my handsome soon to be hubby!!) woot.gif

 

How are you ladies doing?

as far as the outside vendor pricing goes, if the photographer is a paying guest at the hotel then there should not be a fee. it's as if they would be charging you for your friend to take your photos. Since I am a destination wedding photographer, I have never witnessed a couple needing to pay the fee because I am always staying at their resort (which isn't cheap!) One time, a couple straight out told their resort they would not use their resort photographer and are hiring their own, and the wedding coordinator was able to pull the fee ;)
