    Pros: Professional, discrete, creative, funny and organized.

    Cons: Nothing!

    We had our wedding in Cancun in July 2016 and we hired Gonzalo to make our wedding, TTD (Trash The Dress) on the beach and TTD underwater photos. It was the best choice! Since the beginning Gonzalo was very considerate giving me tips on my wedding dress, location, makeup, hair style, guest's dress code, etc. On the ceremony day he was very professional, discrete, creative, funny and organized. I was amazed when I saw the photos, they exceed my expectations, specially the scenes captured in different angles (Gonzalo had to move fast for all these shootings). I also would like to highlight his ability to mobilize our family and friends for the photos and our first dance on the beach, speak in different languages, deal with kids, etc, in the Mexican hot summer! The TTD session was another fun day! He has good eyes to pick the scene and poses, very patient to teach how to transmit emotions in our pictures, etc. On this day, Thalia was with Gonzalo shooting amazing pictures as well. Thanks Thalia!!! The underwater session was an unique experience and I totally recommend it. These underwater photos got more "WOWs!!!" from my friends than any other picture. And for the grand finale, af...” (read more)

    Pros: Creative, attentive, friendly and efficient

    Cons: None!

    First and foremost - if you have an opportunity to hire Gonzalo, do not hesitate - he is simply the best! Gonzalo was recommended to us from another Canadian couple that had him as their destination wedding photographer. After seeing her wedding photos, I was absolutely sure he would be an amazing asset on our destination wedding day. Upon contacting him, we were so happy with how quickly and attentively he responded. Planning a Mexican destination wedding from Canada can have its challenges but fortunately, working with Gonzalo leading up to the wedding day was wonderful! Not only did he answer every question we had, he sent an information sheet to learn more about us as a couple, asked exactly what we were looking for and assured us he had everything covered. I really appreciated the fact that he also coordinated for us to have a videographer present on the wedding day - Claudia's work was amazing and I highly recommend her as well! Meeting Gonzalo on the wedding day - he was on time, happy and efficient. I really appreciated his creativity, insights and suggestions. My shot list was reconfirmed and everything we asked for was done. Gonzalo has a great way of making...” (read more)

    Pros: Price, Communication, Personality, Incredibly Talented Artist

    Cons: It took longer than we expected for the pictures to be completed.

    We had a wonderful experience with Gonzalo Nunez. He was very reasonably priced and great with communication before our wedding. On the wedding day he was incredibly patient with my husband, who is not very photogenic and does not like to have his picture taken. He was also incredibly patient with my bridesmaids and I as we could not take a serious picture if our life depended on it. The poses were fun, but not too cheesy. Our pictures turned out better than I could have possibly imagined. He really told the story of the day in a beautiful way. ” (read more)

    Pros: Artistic, Good price and value, friendly, listens to your vision, emails back quickly

    Cons: He doesn't live in the U.S. (So he could do all my pictures haha)

    I got married in February 2016 at the Now Sapphire Resort and Spa. Gonzalo was recommended to me by my wedding coordinator. I could not be more happy with my photographs. Not only is Gonzalo reasonably priced, he's personable, answers emails quickly and is dedicated to providing excellent service.  Having a destination wedding can get tricky since you can't always be in contact with everyone, but Gonzalo was quick to respond and put my mind at ease. I think I spoke with Gonzalo more than my own wedding coordinator.   I did a lot of research on photographers before I decided on Gonzalo. It was the best decision I made. If you're looking for someone who takes not only traditional photographs, but has an eye for artistic photographs too, then Gonzalo is your guy!” (read more)

    Pros: Communication, Experienced in Wedding Photography, Friendly and Patient

    I got married at the Moon Palace in February and have been telling people ever since that hiring Gonzalo was the best decision we made in the process!   After a frustrating experience in communicating with the on-site photographers, I did a frantic search for other photographers in the Cancun area.  He got back to me immediately (if you are planning a destination wedding I'm guessing that is something you now really value also)!  Right away I appreciated that he was very upfront with his pricing and I loved that we had the option to add on a cenote shoot to our wedding package.  Planning what pictures I wanted was probably the last thing on my to-do list.  I'm am not a planner by nature and I dreaded everything about wedding planning.  Fortunately for me, Gonzalo remembered everything that I mentioned in our email communication that I had liked and was able to set up great shots the day of the wedding.  My husband and are VERY awkward in front of the camera but he was great at giving us direction.   I highly recommend doing a shoot after at the beach and/or cenote!  When else would you ever have the opportunit...” (read more)

    Pros: Talented, Friendly and so easy to work with! You will not go wrong in hiring him!

    Cons: NONE

    I was married at now Sapphire in Riviera Cancun on February 26, 2016. Beautiful resort and perfect wedding, but thats a different review! As we started the process of planning our destination wedding in Mexico, one of my main priorities was to find the best Photographer in Mexico. I do photography part time as my fun job and I wanted someone to capture every moment so" I" had beautiful memories to last a lifetime. As a photographer, you are always behind the lens and never in front of it...so it was very important to me to have one of the best in Mexico. I started my search about a year prior to my wedding date and Gonzalo's name popped right up with some of the best reviews, I knew from his portfolio and all the kind words that previous brides had posted, that he was my guy I contacted him via email and he was quick to respond. You could tell he had a friendly yet professional demeanor from the first email. I wanted someone that not only created beautiful images, but someone that was fun and easy going...I could tell Gonzalo was all that just from a few emails. He sent me info on all his packages promptly and he is worth every penny, I personally think he's worth way more...” (read more)

    Pros: Price, attitude, quality of photos

    Cons: Absolutely none

    Gonzalo is an absolute miracle worker.  He is kind, respectful, careful and so thoughtful with his work.  Each photo he took had purpose and vision.  He is always available for questions or comments, and is overall just a great guy.  During your wedding things can get a little hectic and you can miss things - but Gonzalo really did capture every moment.  Not only that, my mom said he had a huge smile plastered on his face the entire day.  Booking Gonzalo was one of the best things that we did in planning our wedding!” (read more)

    Pros: Talented, Creative, Hard-working, Motivated, Friendly

    Cons: NOTHING AT ALL!

    My husband and I got married in November 2015 in Playa Del Carmen. We were referred to Gonzalo by a friend of a friend who had also used him for her destination wedding.  We were not disappointed!! Gonzalo was great with communication from start to finish.  Any question I had he was there to answer.  He took control of the day and knew exactly what shots to take to result in gorgeous photos.  He is incredibly talented, personable, and professional.  I have absolutely no regrets!!” (read more)

    Pros: Professional, Responsive, Fun, Funny, Easy-going, Amazing Photographer

    Cons: None!

    My fiance and I booked a weekend getaway to Cancun, and spontaneously decided to have our engagement photos done there.  We looked up destination wedding photographers and Gonzalo came up...and I am SO THANKFUL we did.  Gonzalo is literally the best decision we've made in wedding planning thus far.  He's incredibly responsive, warm, personable, and professional.  He immediately put us at ease within seconds of meeting us. He has a great eye for what looks great and made our photoshoot incredibly fun.  He promised us the photos would be turned around quickly, and we literally got all our edited photos within a week. AND EVERY SINGLE ONE IS BEAUTIFUL. We are so happy with everything, and we only wish he lived in Boston so he could be our wedding photographer too!  HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a photographer in the Cancun area!!!” (read more)

    Pros: Efficient, Personable, Professional, Quick to Respond! Excellent Pricing! Dependable! Hardworking! Awesome! The list can go on forever... (:

    Cons: NOTHING!

    Booking Gonzalo Nunez to capture our Wedding Day was the GREATEST decision we made! Since the first email we sent him just inquiring about pricing and his availability, he was efficient, quick to reply and one of the most personable individuals we've met! We hired him immediately, and knew we had nothing to worry about. We could trust and depend on Gonzalo to do an amazing job, and that he did! He understood who we are and what we wanted for our Wedding Day, and as far as his quality of photos go, OUTSTANDING! His pricing is far more than REASONABLE; if you look at other vendors, their prices are mind blowing! Nothing compares to Gonzalez Nunez! (: During the day of the Wedding, he was there when we needed him, I was having a Bridezilla Meltdown as he entered my suite, but he came in, did his thing and the day went perfectly! Our family still raves about how great of a guy he is, (we had a small intimate wedding, everyone got to interact) and how fantastic our photos came out! (: Riviera Maya is our home away from home, so we know we will be using Gonzalo again in the near future! THANK YOU GONZALO NUNEZ! ” (read more)

    Pros: everything: honest, dependable, responsive, creative, nice guy, a pleasure to work with

    Cons: absolutely nothing

    I'm not sure there is more to say about Gonzalo that hasn't already been said in the reviews I read.  If you want a responsive, dependable, professional, creative great photographer, Gonzalo is your guy.  I was looking for a photographer to capture my son's bar mitzvah.   Try searching bar mitzvah photographers in Mexico - good luck. haha  When I searched wedding photographers in the area, I couldn't believe how many there were.  How do you choose?  Of course, the most expensive ones do the most advertising and they always pop up first.  I checked them out.  Great photos, but many were companies and hire multiple photographers.  I wanted a photographer that seemed more accessable and possibly less cookie cutter.  I checked out Gonzalo's work and it was spectacular, especially the TTD photos.  I wish I had been getting married or renewing my vows just for the photos!  Gonzalo responded in a timely manner and was super responsive to each email.  He is reasonably priced and I wanted access to all the photos, I didnt want to have to buy photos in addition to the session fee.  I am so happy I chose Gonzalo....” (read more)

    Pros: Fun, Creative and Proffessional

    Cons: not a single one :)

    We chose Gonzalo as a photographer for our wedding at the Oceans Coral & Turquesa resort in Cancun, MX in March 2015. We had been to destination weddings in the past and had the chance to observe the types of photographs and services that you get from a resort photographer and knew that we wanted a more unique experience for our wedding. Gonzalo was recommended to us by family and offered a great value and selection of options that allowed us to get exactly what we wanted for our wedding pictures.    We knew that we had chosen the most professional, friendly and dedicated photographer from the outset. Gonzalo always replied to our emails in a timely fashion and with his full attention. He took the time to ask us questions, get to know us, and set up all the final details before we made our way to Cancun from Canada. Looking back on planning a destination wedding, this was a very genuine and heartwarming quality that Gonzalo demonstrated, and it made us feel confident that this aspect of our wedding was in very good hands.  Gonzalo captured every single moment of our wedding perfectly. On top of ensuring that every guest and d...” (read more)

    Pros: Professional, fun, friendly

    We've got married back in Holland and asked our hotel to recommend a good photographer for our honeymoon, and we weren't disappointed. Absolutely fabulous photographer! He did an amazing shoot at a beautiful location. He's really professional, funny and able to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We'd highly recommend him for any occasion!” (read more)

    My husband and I got married back in December in Playa Del Carmen and all I can say is that Gonzalo did such an amazing job!  We recently got our photos and he captured every single moment of our wedding plus more!!

    Gonzalo was everything he advertised!  He was on time, professional and fun!  He knew our resort (Dreams at Puerto Aventuras Mexico) very well and had some great ideas for our TDD shot.  He made my wife look just gorgeous in all the photos, but especially those on the beach and in the water. I highly recommend Gonzalo for any wedding or other photo shot!  The photos speak for themselves!” (read more)

    Pros: Communication, Price, Everything!

    Cons: None

    My Husband and I got married at Now Jade Riviera Cancun in July 2014. In planning the wedding I contemplated using the resort photographer. However, after reviewing our budget and talking to my husband, we realized that wedding pictures are truly what you have left to remember your special day and we simply had to hire an outside photographer. I researched best Destination Wedding for the best wedding photographers in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area and Gonzalo was one of them. After reviewing his portfolio both my husband and I agreed that we had to hire him. Lucky for us he was available and we could not be happier with our decision. Gonzalo is very responsive via email and was extremely helpful setting an appropriate timeline for the day of the wedding. We emailed back and forth several times trying to find the best timeline and finally he offered us an extra hour at half price! Planning a wedding from afar can be stressful, but Gonzalo took away any stress I had about the photography. He constantly kept me updated about his timing etc… On the day of the wedding he met with my husband to go over final details and payment and then met me at the spa where I was getting my hair don...” (read more)

    Pros: Stunning work, extremely friendly, responds quickly

    Cons: NONE!

    My wife and I got married on May 26, 2014. We were extremely lucky to be blessed with the presence and services of Mr. Gonzalo Nunez. Obviously, one of the most important parts of planning a wedding is selecting your photographer. After much deliberation, we decided to utilize Gonzalo. However, it should have been a no-brainer and he should have been the first and only pick. Not only did Gonzalo arrive early to review the day's schedule, we chatted about some ideas that he had. My wife and I had an idea for a picture or two, but then asked him to take charge and direct us. As we both prepared in our separate rooms, Gonzalo arranged an impressive array of shots that would allow us to see each other's preparations once we received our photos. Following the ceremony, he began the photos of the wedding party, family and even a few pics of all 65 of us. All while directing every single picture and everyone involved. Then my wife and I followed his direction as he led us around to some beautiful photo locations. Anytime we would get "distracted" or "slow down", he would plead with us to trust and push on as we were losing time and sunlight. I'm so glad that we followed his l...” (read more)

    My husband and I were married at the now jade in riviera maya mexico on may 16th 2014. From the start of our planning i knew we had to hire an outside photographer instead of using the resort photographer because i wanted perfect pictures from our wedding! I found Gonzalo from searching on this website, and after looking at his work online i knew we had to hire him! Communicating with him was super easy as he responded very quickly through email. We hired him for the wedding day and also trash the dress session.  He arrived to my husbands room first to get pictures of the guys getting ready, then came to my room. After this we moved on to the ceremony and reception. He was so nice, funny and very easy to work with, and told us what to do and how to pose. He captured so many beautiful pictures that will last us a lifetime. Two days after our wedding, Gonzalo came to pick us up and drove us to Tulum where we did our underwater TTD and beach session. The underwater pics were definitely hard to do but gonzalo was very patient with us, guided us, and it turned out to be really great. After the underwater pics, he treated us to lunch at this really really good...” (read more)

    Pros: He knows what he is doing.

    Cons: NONE

    The best decision my husband and I made in planning our wedding was hiring Gonzalo to be our photographer.He was referred to me by a friend who had seen his work.  I didn't hesitate to check out his website and was amazed at how beautiful his work really was.  I emailed him and he responded in a timely manner which was a great!  I had so many questions not only about his photography but also about the venue I had chosen to get married at and Gonzalo never hesitated to answer any of my questions.  I was clear about wanting him to capture true moments in my wedding not just of myself and my husband but about everyone around us.  I wanted the pictures to reflect the true emotions that were being felt on that day by everyone around me and he did exactly that!I have pictures of my wedding I would have missed if he had not captured them for example, there is a photo of my 5 year old niece checking out her beautiful dress, she was my flower girl and in the midst of everyone getting ready she was admiring herself.  It was moments like those I longed to have. I also did the underwater trash the dress, I can go on and on at how GREAT Gonzalo was.He was reassu...” (read more)
