    Amazing Experience

    5.05.0Posted

    By: massem · 1 Comments

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Not one thing

    My husband and I first heard of Del Sol shortly after we decided to get married in Mexico from an acquaintance that had also had photos done by Del Sol.  The moment she shared her slideshow with us we knew we would HAVE to do that.  We had never seen photos like that.  It was one of the first and easiest decisions we made.  I spent hours on their website in absolute AWE of the photos.  Sol and her team did not disappoint.  The picked us up early at our resort and we headed to our first location.  I can't say enough about the whole day, it's like a dream!  Don't get me wrong, it is hard work, but also so amazing.  The team was fun, we were constantly laughing and immediately felt comfortable with them.  Sol is an absolute genius and her passion was contagious.  She directed us around and would get all excited which would feed to us.  Aquaman, was also fantastic, he seemed to be able to read Sol's mind and always made sure I was alright in the deep water and would give encouraging words.  I can't say enough about the day.  THEN there are the absolutely breathtaking photos.  Wow, they are something else....” (read more)

    Our family can't stop raving over the Del Sol photos!

    Pros: the team, the memories, the unique images

    Cons: that it is too hard to pick which ones are going in the album and on our walls! The photos are just brilliant.

    We set-up the underwater trash the dress session with Del Sol the day after we confirmed our wedding date at our resort.  That is how much we knew we wanted to have this studio take our TTD pictures in March 2014.  And we weren't disappointed in the least. We had a gorgeous day at the Cenote & beach with Debora and her team.  We learned the difference between the black (don't touch!) and white (touch!) trees during our jungle trek. We experienced the seasoning salt on pineapple, which we now have in our cabinet at home. And when it was time to go in the water, they were very patient with helping us acclimate to posing underwater and made us laugh the entire time.   We knew the photos would be amazing, but we so surprised at just how fabulous they turned out. The clarity of the water, the abundance of the fish, the amazing light that was captured. Debora was just in the right spot each time to get the right image.  When we received the sneak peek images that they so kindly prepared for us to show at our at-home reception we were in awe.  Our family & friends didn't quite believe that I was underwater in my wedding dress and ask...” (read more)

    The Best Decision We Made!

    5.05.0Posted

    By: jbascetta209 · 2 Comments

    Pros: they care...TRULY!!

    Cons: nothing!

    We were looking to capture moments in our wedding, not just images. Debora and Diego were AMAZING! Our wedding ceremony and reception was at Xcaret... a truly magical place and a "once in a lifetime" experience for us and our guests. Even our guests said, "Your wedding was the most beautiful I've ever been to... and your photographers! OMG!" ... And they hadn't even seen the pictures yet! Debora was truly a wonderful and talented woman, and went out of her way for us to make us comfortable. We wanted these photos to be spectacular, however, we are not supermodels and have never taken ourselves very seriously. Debora and crew had a way of bringing it out of us, and the results were truly beautiful. (Totally nothing to do with the photos, but this just stood out to me more than anything).. we have a 3yr old son who has a sensitivity to dairy. We asked Debora where we could get some organic almond or coconut milk (not the kind you make piña coladas with...cuz they had that at the hotel lol). She let us know of a store nearby that should have it, but the next morning, she had come and left three different varieties of milks at our hotel's front desk...(and a couple chocolates for us...” (read more)

    Pros: Artistic, Professional, amazing

    Cons: Nothing!

    I am obsessed with Del Sol and their work. I just receieved some of my pictures from my wedding at the Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla and I cannot wait to see more. They are great to work with. Del Sol is very professional and know how to take the best pictures. I found them online while searching for a photographer for my destination wedding. They are worth every penny we spent. Ael is sooo helpful. All my questions and concerns were answered almost immediatly. Every time I had was worried about something Ael reassured me that everything was going to be great and it was. I am SO happy I chose Del Sol. I am so excited to see all my pictures I know they will be perfect!!!!!!!!!” (read more)

    Pros: Everything about del sol is amazing

    Cons: Wish I could take them home with me

    AIf I could describe del sol in one word it's Art !! Because everything they do is just that. They are amazing and capture such beauty through pictures, I honestly could have not asked for a better photographer and team . Melissa and Ashley did an amazing job capturing my wedding day , I felt like they were family. They made us feel so comfortable as they took pictures , they also work as a great team and I love how they separated and ashley was with my husband while Melissa took pictures of me getting ready. It's like they told a story of Us through pictures and I couldn't have asked for anything better. If you are looking for a photographer that makes you feel like family and can capture every small detail of your big day then I say book them now !! They really are worth every penny.” (read more)

    Pros: Finished product, customer service, little touches

    Cons: can be challenging to pay from Canadian banks but that's all I can come up with!

    Where to start?   From the moment I first contacted them to discuss availability, price, etc, I was blown away by their professionalism and desire to make sure you get the best photos possible.  From their initial questionnaire to give you the most appropriate quote all the way to the very end when they ship you your long awaited USB key in its gorgeous packaging the execution is flawless.  I spent a lot of time talking to Ael as we got details organized and she was always quick to respond and always a pleasure.  Even when we had issues trying to remit our second payment through a Canadian bank (which we made work, finally!) she was helpful every step of the way. And then there are the photos.  My husband and I have been married for over seven years and had mediocre pictures taken at our wedding.  We liked them but didn't LOVE them, you know?  Fast forward to this summer.  He and I had both lost a significant amount of weight and decided that while we were on vacation in Mexico celebrating my 40th that we'd renew our vows and get new photos done, photos that we'd love forever now that we felt better about how we looked. ...” (read more)

    Pros: Gorgeous shot, awesome photogs, wonderful/helpful team, prompt responses

    I am posting this several months late but my experience is fresh in my mind.  I had an absolutely GREAT experience with Del Sol for our wedding.I found them while searching online for photographers in Riviera Maya and just fell in LOVE with their photography.  This was my splurge for our destination wedding and we have LOVED it! Their site is gorgeous and gives you a taste of their quality. I went right onto their website and emailed their info email address.  Ael was super helpful and prompt with emails, information and updates and answered ALL of my questions.  We had Juan Jose and Melissa for our big day and they were so much fun and artistic and both have great personalities.  Juan has a crazy amount of energy and will contort himself into some crazy positions and spaces to get the shot he has in mind (and run around at full speed with sparklers to get the shot from my wishlist!!).  Melissa is gorgeous and puts everyone at ease.  Dynamic duo  As we went through the night and Juan was taking his crazy shots he would show us on his camera and you could see right off his use of light and his camera skills.  His eye jus...” (read more)

    Del Sol Photography = Incredible Artistry

    5.05.0Posted

    By: MKEbride2be · 1 Comments

    Pros: Professional, artistic, enthusiastic, photo-journalist style

    Cons: Absolutely none!

    Choosing Del Sol for our wedding and trash the dress photography was definitely the best decision we made (after the decision to get married, of course!) in our wedding planning.  The photographs of our wedding and cenote/beach TTD are stunning.  We decided early in our planning we wanted a photographer that would capture the emotions of our wedding day in addition to the details; Del Sol exceeded our every desire.   Juan Jose literally turned our rainy day wedding into a rainbow and captured the fiery sunset in images that still leave me speechless.  Sol made our underwater dreams come to life--and then let things heat up on the beach.  Both photographers had an unbelievable ability to see beauty in our surroundings and to inspire us to open up and share our connection to each other with the camera.   Working with Del Sol was the easiest part of planning our destination wedding.  They are very well organized, prompt to respond to questions and always available via email or phone.  If you are looking for true artists to capture your memories, you have found your photographers.     Thank you so much to the whole Del Sol team....” (read more)

    Pros: Easy to work with. Professional. Creative.

    AWe just had our wedding in Mexico Riviera Maya Barcelo Maya Colonial hotel and Juan was our principal photographer. My experience with Del Sol photography was so easy to deal with, worry free and very professional. Juan was great! He is so much fun to work with and so so creative. I would reccomend Del Sol to any one. They are a bit pricy, but they are worth every penny. I'm so happy we chose them! I wish you all good luck with you upcoming weddings!

    Pros: Talented, Generous, Professional...AMAZING

    Cons: None

    Booking Sol Tamargo as our principal wedding photographer was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made. What I love about Sol’s work (and that of the many amazing Del Sol photographers whose photos I ended up stalking over the past year) is that she more than documents the day, she somehow captures its essence.  She emphasizes the importance of telling your story, and my family and friends were literally in awe of her as she ran around capturing all the moments and the nuances that have allowed us to relive our wedding over and over again.  Her partner Diego was also awesome, and my husband will be forever indebted to him for capturing a true GQ moment with him and his best man!  And that’s just the day of. I also have to acknowledge the ever-cheerful Ael, who constantly exudes friendliness and warmth through email…even if she’d rather chat on the phone. Everyone at Del Sol understands how important this day is to you, and they work together to enhance its specialness. I have been consistently amazed by my experiences with Del Sol, and would highly recommend them to anyone.     Some of our favorites are below!      ...” (read more)

    Pros: Wonderful, worth every penny!!

    Cons: Nothing

    AI chose del sol after I saw my friends trash the dress photos she did a few years ago.. I was in awe,and had to do it for when I got married.. Let me tell you it's hard work, but the experience is unbelievable!!! We worked with Debora who is such a sweetheart and amazing with her camera.. She truly is gifted, and makes you feel like you are star.. I can't wait to see all my photos from the cenotes. Del sol is fantastic, and worth every cent!! I wish I had them for my actual wedding, but I'm so grateful I did the TTD with them, because no one else could of delivered like this.. It's pure magic what they capture under the water..” (read more)

    Pros: They are awesome, professional, excellent communication, amazing artists!

    Cons: none

    Sol was the most amazing artist, I love my pictures! My guests are still talking about her 4 months later!  She captured our day in a stunning special way. If you want the very best memories, hire Del Sol Photography.  From first contact you will be blown away by their attention to detail, artistry, great informative and prompt customer service, and when you get to your wedding day you can be confident that you will have every moment captured as art!” (read more)

    Del Sol Photography: World-class art!

    5.05.0Posted

    By: Mikeycelle · 1 Comments

    Pros: Creative, fun, relaxed, unique experience!

    Cons: Book them as soon as possible!

    I'm looking back at some of our photos from a month ago and can't believe it's over!  I miss the Riviera Maya.  Now I'm just waiting on Del Sol Photography to edit and send us at least a sneak peek of our cenote shoot on April 22, 2013. We decided this special shoot would be our wedding gift to each other. We wanted that beautiful experience Del Sol is known for. We email our questions and concerns to Ael who answered them promptly and professionally.  Matt Adcock and another awesome photographer, the sexy Debora, captured the day. Matt was from the U.S.A. and Debora from Italy. Both speak Spanish and English fluently. They have a whole team of photographers including Sol, who is Matt's beautiful wife.  This photography team is not your point-and-shoot photographers. They are truly incredible artists dedicated to their craft. You will see it in the excitement in their eyes and the smiles on their faces. Their style requires the use of natural light with minimal editing. I don’t care as long as long as the artist is happy with his/her work! Then I’m a satisfied client.    They picked us up at our hotel in a van complete with a huge cooler...” (read more)

    Use Del Sol

    5.05.0Posted

    By: echoate · 1 Comments

    Pros: professional, incredible photography, friendly, fully multi-lingual, cost effective

    Cons: none

    Del Sol is fabulous.   I got very lucky when, due to owner Matt's past insight and forethought, I was allowed to bring Del Sol onto our hotel's property without a massive charge for not using the hotel's affiliated photographer - but I had no idea how lucky I was!!   Working with Del Sol was so easy.  It was by far the easiest thing I had to manage throughout the wedding planning process.  Matt hooked me with a personal call.  Ael was most professional and friendly when it came to answering all of my questions.  While it was my choice for coming to Mexico and not knowing Spanish, her perfect English was honestly a timely relief for me.  And Juan and Debora, who ended up shooting our wedding, were friendly, fun, discreet, and obviously insanely talented.  You can check out our pictures here: http://delsolphotogr...as-es-04172013/   What I loved about Del Sol's photography was the vibrancy, casualness (very few staged photos here!), and amazing use of light in their photos.  I really appreciate the incredible artistic talent of the pictures I had seen on their website.  And now that I've been there with them in real time...” (read more)

    Pros: experts at destination wedding photography , creative, artistic and distinct style

    Cons: NONE

    WE are SOOOO Excited over our wedding pictures!!! THEY ARE TRUELY AMAZING !!!!! Our pictures brought us back to those one in a lifetime memories , that truly were captured perfectly by Jonathan and Matt at both our wedding day and our TTD Cenote shoot !!!

    Del Sol Photography - The story tellers with a camera lens. Every picture shines with the truth, love, joy & elegance.

    5.05.0Posted

    By: Lou-B · 1 Comments

    Pros: Amazing photographers, hard working team (even those I never met but still emailed), beautiful photographs & everything that I could have hoped for !

    Cons: Choosing the photographer as they're all talented. I would say pricey but with Del sol you get what you pay for, worth every penny !

    Ok where to start ....  I actually stumbled across this amazing company.  I had started to google the photographers at the resort where we would be getting married and found these beautiful photo's of a wedding held at the same place.  Just by chance, I had never heard of Del Sol until then...  I'm so happy that we used them.   So from the moment I filled the online form in just a mere 6 weeks before our wedding I couldn't help to feel nervous.  I had looked through every single photo on Del Sol's website and every picture spoke a thousand words, regardless of what it was.  I feared that they would be too expensive or fully booked.  Within a day or two I had a response, asking to fill in a form to get a feel for what we wanted as a couple and a family.   I typed away and then within a day or two again I received a quote and a list of 4 photographers to choose from.  There was $600 between the photographers and due to budget we went for the ones that were slightly cheaper... Do not think that this would reflect on the service or talent.  As you will see that all of Del Sol's photographers are extremely talented and bring the...” (read more)

    Del Sol photography and Debora Ducci unforgettable experience

    5.05.0Posted

    By: Arle playa · 1 Comments

    Pros: Creative, passionate, professionals, artistic, not enough words to describe them

    Cons: NONE

    I've been in the wedding business for the last 5 years as a wedding planner and every time that Del sol was shooting one of my weddings I said to myself I only wish that when the time comes I can have them as my wedding photographers, because I knew that they will get all the details, emotions, lights and all the memories that I wanted to keep from that special day, that is a life time experience. On September last year finally my time to be a bride arrived and my dream came true, I had Del sol taking our “precious memories “….  My photographer was Debora; I want to say so many things about her that I do not really know where to begging…. Let say that she is a star, she is a natural artist,, and the best part of working with her is that she made me feel like a rock start, like a queen,  like I was the more important person in the world ( well for a bride on my wedding day that was a plus ), because weddings are my way of living I was aware of things that could go wrong and my fiancé was not keen on the idea of having a long photo session but Debora was so relax, she knew exactly what angles would work for us, it was so easy to just go with the flow. In the same...” (read more)

    Del Sol are Amazing!

    By: joda · 1 Comments

    Pros: Talented, creative, hard working photographers who will give you beautiful shots of your day!

      This review is long overdue, but due to computer problems it was put off. However, I can truly say that after almost a year that I love my photos more now than I did when I received them!   My husband and I were married at the Now Sapphire in March of 2012. For me, one of the most important aspects of wedding planning was photography, and I spent a long time researching different photographers to find someone who was the right fit. I mean, after everything is said and done, your photos are what you have left.   Once I found Del Sol, I started comparing all other photographers to them, so I realized that was who I wanted. Yes, there are cheaper options out there. But I think they are worth every penny! Their photos are beautiful and you can look up hundreds of weddings to see exactly what kind of work you can expect from them. Their customer service is excellent. I dealt with numerous people from the company before and after the wedding, and everyone was so friendly and helpful. I always felt comfortable contacting them if I had any concerns or questions about the day.   On the day of the wedding Jonathan and Melissa showed up right on time, and worked tire...” (read more)

    Del Sol Photography

    5.05.0Posted

    By: Georgia Ritchie · 1 Comments

    Pros: great people; hard workers; beautiful, stunning photos!

    We had extremely high expectations for Del Sol Photography for our wedding mainly because of the cost for their photography and because we had seen their previous work. Our expectations were completely surpassed. Matt & Sol are awesome people that are easy to deal with and really have an energy and buzz for life. They bring that to their work as they work extremely hard.  Our wedding guests were astounded by how hard they both worked all day & night to try to capture our wedding. The most important thing is that they both have a special eye for photography and art and they take AMAZING photos. Their photos capture all the emotion and happiness of a wedding and are simply stunning.   We were having our wedding in the Mexican jungle and I was so worried about many aspects of the wedding. Having hired Del Sol Photography early in our wedding planning I was not slightly concerned about how they would perform and my instinct was correct. If you think it is expensive, you will soon realize they are worth every $ that they charge and more just check out the photos on their website. Don't even consider an alternative, get them you will not be disappointed!  ” (read more)
