  1. Welcome to our forum community jillmarie and Congrats on your dw next July!!! As you've already seen, there's lots of great advice here from your fellow brides, so well done on joining up We agree about keeping as cool as possible....it's the tropics and beach weddings can be very warm! Wedgies are great for walking on the sand too, and there are lots of really nice looking ones you may want to consider. If you have a solid surface, heels are a popular choice. Wishing you happy research, and all the best with your plans - cheers!!! Moments That Matter Photography team ....this was taken from our Paradisus Playa del Carmen Wedding Story Album....enjoy!
  2. Welcome to our forum community, Kelly and Congrats on your upcoming Bahia Principe Akulum wedding!!! As you've already seen, there are lots of great resources here to help with your planning questions, so well done on joining us One item you may want to check is whether your resort allows outside vendors. We're based in the Riviera Maya, so are familiar with our local Grand Bahia Principe Akumal's policy of not allowing any outside photography vendors to enter their resort. If photography is important to you, this is one factor to consider in your resort choice. We wish you happy research, and all the best with your plans - cheers!!! Moments That Matter Photography team

  5. Welcome to our forum community, heben42 and Congrats on your upcoming dw next year!

  6. Welcome to the boards, and Congrats on your Tulum wedding next spring, emilywhite!!! Tulum has such great laid back ambiance, you're sure to have an amazing wedding celebration there! You're right about being concerned bringing in a photographer with you. It is illegal for someone to come to Mexico and photograph a wedding without proper working papers. The same way people can not just travel to the USA or Canada and work. Cancun airport is aware of this and as you will see... scans all luggage arriving when you go through customs. People traveling with more than one camera will need to answer for the equipment. We're not trying to scare you... just give you the facts of working in a foreign country. Do you really want to take a chance of ruining your Big Day after all your careful planning and attention to details? Or take the risk of not having a photographer at all ~ and not getting that precious photo story record you would cherish for a lifetime? It's your choice. You're also right about outside professional photographer and vendor fees being high. I guess you need to decide whether it's worth it, and that may not be an easy decision. We wish you all the best with finding the right answer for YOU, and that it turns out just the way you envision - or Even BETTER!!! Cheers, Moments That Matter Photography team ...we'll leave you with these visual moments that matter for inspiration, taken from our Dreams Tulum Wedding Story Album....enjoy!!!

You'll find lots of great resources here to help answer your planning questions, so well done on joining up In case you haven't already seen it, here's a link to the Now Jade's FAQ page with a "live chat" window available there to ask any question you have directly.....like whether they have a penalty if 80% of your guests are not staying at their resort. Hope this help you and we wish you all the very Best with your planning process and amazing life journey ahead - Cheers!!! Moments That Matter Photography team ....here are some additional moments that matter to inspire you, that we captured at a recent Now Jade Wedding Story....enjoy!!!

  9. Congrats on your upcoming Mayan Riviera destination wedding, AliciaW and welcome to the boards! We advise our wedding couples to consider the sunset time on the day of their wedding and set the ceremony time at 2 hours before sunset. That's optimal timing to capture that magical Golden light of sunset for their newlywed photos - Pure! Gold! More info at this link: MTM FAQs In April 2017 the sun sets from 7:02pm on April 1, 2017 - 7:12pm on April 30, 2017 To show you what we're talking about re "Gold!" here are some examples......enjoy!!! Taken from our Riviera Maya Wedding Story Albums: Wishing you happy research, and all the best with your plans - cheers!!! Moments That Matter Photography team
  10. Great article ckinkenbine, thx for sharing! We agree Ivan Luckie is a great professional photographer - would Luv to see some of the photos he captured for you guys! However there is one "sticky" point you make in your advice.....bringing a photographer friend/relative from home. That can be a problem that causes stress you really don't need on your Big Day! Is the person you're asking to take photos for you a friend? If so, it's quite another function to do both - capture your wedding in photos as a photographer AND be a wedding guest who enjoys your celebration. Another consideration is that it is illegal for someone to come to Mexico and photograph a wedding without proper working papers. The same way people can not just travel to the USA or Canada and work. Cancun airport is aware of this and as you will see... scans all luggage arriving when you go through customs. People traveling with more than one camera will need to answer for the equipment. I'm not trying to scare you... just give you the facts of working in a foreign country. Those scenarios are just not something you want to deal with at the last minute on your wedding day - to say the least. On the postive side, there are lots of great professional photographers available in our magnificent Mayan Riviera (like Ivan Luckie) who'll do a great job at capturing your wedding day love story in photos! So why take a chance? I hope everyone has a totally awesome experience at their destination weddings, and enjoy their wonderful new life journeys ahead - Congrats to all, cheers!!!
