Outside Photographer Warns me about Riu.
Posted 12 October 2007 - 12:52 AM
I contacted Sun Gold Photography to see what their rates are and here is the response to my inquiry.
Hi Marsha and Brian,
Congratulations on your up-coming wedding at RIU Ocho Rios. Marsha we would love to be a part of your special day, but I have to warn you about RIU resorts. They are not too keen on the idea of you having an outside photographer. The last time 3 times we went to RIU Ocho Rios, our clients actually booked us into the hotel. I just want to fore-warn you of any complications.
I am attaching our photography packages and information for you to view, please let us know if we can be of any more assistance.

so it appears that even if you pay to bring in n outside vendor photographer, you still may have to fork over money to book your photographer at the hotel as a guest.......but i'm not sure. what do you ladies think about this?

I'm on my way out the door to work now, but if I have a chance later I'll try to find it for you!
PS- Plus Michael at Photoshop KNOWS the Sungold photographers. I think he'd be more likely to meddle if it's another photographer from Jamaica who he knows to 'look out for.' Have you considered using a US photographer? We're using Robin DePaula and she has a great special right now!

I will most likely use Micheal's services, because I do not want to go through a whole bunch of BS on my wedding day. I'm still planning on bringing a friend of mine from back home to take some pictures. He will be a guest at the hotel.
oh Heidi: I forgot to ask about Robin's special. What is it?

I'm no longer offering the special, but can give you a custom quote if you're interested . . . pm me or contact me through my website.
Thanks so much!
