Pros: Creative, friendly, professional, responsive, fun
Cons: None
Lincoln, Silvi - many thanks and appreciation for an amazing experience.  We had a great time and lots of laughs. It was not just a photo shot, it was a creative expression of the love we share.  The pictures are breathtaking and invoke deep emotions of happiness each time we view them, which by the way is everyday. Our families love the pictures and even got emotional as well. We couldn’t have asked for a better gift to celebrate our 30th anniversary - thank you for sharing it with us.  We look forward to celebrating our next signification event/milestone with you. Much love!

Lincoln and his team are truly professionals. They answer emails promptly and are very easy to work with. Silvi came to take our pictures while we were on summer vacation, and my family truly had FUN. She was so kind and energetic. Most of the time getting six people to take pictures together is frustrating, but we were laughing and having a good time. When we look back on the vacation pictures now, we smile. The photos were such a great quality and very unique. The price is reasonable, especially for such a good experience, along with plenty of high quality pictures! I would highly recommend working with Moments that Matter Photography. You will not be disappointed! Allison Collins USA

Pros: super responsive, fun and great attitude, creative, amazing results
Cons: 6-10 weeks to get photos back, but totally worth the wait!
We can’t say enough great things about Lincoln and his team at MTM. We wanted a fun and exciting photographer to capture our special day, and Lincoln and Silvina were exactly that. Both were super fun and I sort of felt like we were hanging out with close friends all day! Lincoln was a pleasure to work with prior to the big day and answered all sorts of crazy questions and received countless changes to our planning/shot list without a single complaint. Despite the 90 degrees day and the 90% humidity, Silvi and Lincoln powered on as though the heat was no big deal.  And we loved being a part of their banter – you can tell they love each other very much. The photos are AMAZING! Our friends and family are blown away and we’re struggling to decide which pieces to frame! And Lincoln was super accommodating when I asked for a music change-up on our slideshow, due to my poor planning when selecting the initial music. The final results are totally worth the price and the wait!

Thank you Lincoln for the amazing photos of our wedding day.  Having great photos was really important to me so I looked at a lot of different photographers before making my decision.  I love your style and the photos are just what we wanted.  You made us feel comfortable and I loved that you captured everything we wanted!  I would highly recommend you to anyone!

Lincoln’s work was nothing but amazing!  We booked him for our wedding day and a trash the dress session in the Cenote a couple days later. He and his team were extremely professional and really put you at easy/comfortable to work with.  His wedding day photos told a story and not the typical “forced poses” (except the wedding formals, as expected) everything was very fluid and natural and the slide show told an amazing story of how the day went by. Despite the less than ideal sunny beach weather the photos turned out better than we could have imagined! We have gotten so many complements on our photos and it was definitely worth the price!     Lincoln was very responsive to emails, was available for phone calls and we were able to communicate through WhatApp once in Mexico. The whole booking process was very smooth! Bonus being a Canadian you can pay via email money transfers, which was very convenient for us.   Thank you for everything!  Wish you were closer, we’d book you for many other photo sessions J

Lincoln and his team at MTM Photography were incredibly easy to deal with and professional right from day one. We were nervous trying to plan our wedding from Canada in Mexico, but Lincoln was always fast to answer all of our questions over email and phone, and put our minds at ease fairly early on in our planning process. On our wedding day, Silvina and Shari arrived early and were so easy to work with. They kept us on time, relaxed and enjoying the day, all while capturing some incredible memories for us. We have looked through our package numerous times and still can’t get over how perfectly and beautifully they were able to capture the emotions and details of our day! We can’t thank you enough for the amazing job you did capturing our wedding day!

Many many thanks to Lincoln and Silvi at MTM Photography! They captured the essence of Love between and around us, the spirit and emotion of all those in attendance, and the theme of our wedding, "One Love!" It’s amazing how they were able to catch when our eyes met or a smile across the room or somebody in the middle of their best dance moves or a loving embrace. You can literally feel the emotion through the photos. They were everywhere but very discreet at the same time. We have pictures of every single person that attended in some kind of action shot. Lincoln’s creative editing breathed even more life into tear jerking experiences for guests in attendance and people who were unable attend. My guests say that looking at the pictures takes them right back to that magical day! We are so grateful to MTM Photography for capturing the most memorable "Moments that Matter!" One Love, Dayna and Syncere

Pros: Communication, Personality, AMAZING PHOTOS and Professionalism.
Cons: None
After searching tirelessly for a photographer to catch the essence of our wedding day we found the artistic style we were seeking with Moments that Matter Photography. Lincoln and Silvina were absolutely amazing from start to finish, as they were efficient; friendly; funny; passionate and professional. Lincoln was beyond wonderful when it came to working with our challenging family and capturing our precious moments. Their precision to detail is amazing and we cannot stop looking at our photos and reliving the day over and over again. Everything was perfect from the first contact to the reception of our photos. By the end of the night Lincoln and Silvina felt like part of our family. We cannot recommend Moments that Matter Photography enough.

Pros: Communication, great quality, exceeded expectations and very professional
Cons: None
Amazing Work!!! Lincoln, his wife and the rest of the MTM Team made our wedding day a breeze. The photos and videos turned out AMAZING! I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for the best.    Leading up to the wedding day, the communication was great and everything was well planned and organized. At first we were going to use the photography service through Finest Playa Mujeres. However, I decided to look around and I found MTM and the rest is history. They do an AWESOME job!

Pros: Great communication, beautiful photos, awesome personalities
Cons: A bit pricier than other photographers, photos take a while to be delivered
Lincoln and Silvy were awesome. Our wedding pictures were absolute gorgeous and they got right in the action to capture the shots. I wanted to make sure the whole day was captured and that I received hundreds of pictures and Lincoln delivered. Our trash the dress session was so fun and the pictures are great. Tip for bride: do your hair and makeup bc you are not in the water for the first half of the pictures. It's one thing I regret bc I just assumed we would be straight in the water. Doesn't matter much tho because the pictures were still awesome. You won't be disappointed w booking MTM

Lincoln’s work is absolutely exceptional. We had originally planned to take our own photographer with us and pay for their travel expenses to the wedding.  I came across Lincoln’s work as I was searching for a hair and makeup team.  My husband and I were absolutely blown away with his work.  Lincoln was very prompt when responding to our inquiry email.  He was honest, professional, and charismatic. We knew that we were taking a risk by hiring someone whom we had never met.  It was a risk worth taking! We met Lincoln the day of the wedding and he got right to work. Believe me when I say that he captured our day perfectly! I look through the pictures and video feeling the same emotions I felt that day.  He perfectly captured all of those beautiful raw moments with our family and friends.  If you are looking for someone to capture all of the emotions of your wedding day in a beautifully artistic and professional way, look no further! We highly recommend Lincoln!!!!!

Best photography and videography service. We had our wedding at Riu Palace in the Riviera Maya and could not have been happier with the professional photos and videos we received. The edited photos are absolutely stunning as well as the highlights video and photo slideshow. Make sure you get the gold package and also include the drone service in the video, totally worth the extra money.   I would recommend MTM Photography to anyone, Lincoln and his team are skilled individuals that are truly passionate about their work.

Pros: Great Pics & Service
Cons: wish we were still there ... but no cons about MTM
Highly recommended - Great experience from the initial booking to getting the pictures!  Although our wedding was small the pictures make it look absolutely amazing!  Which it was ;o) Can not fault at all  Pictures included beach themed and some amazing areas within the hotel grounds and in the lobby (Riu Palace Mexico in Playacar)  If you want the best pictures in Mexico for your wedding or even just some great holiday pics, then get MTM booked. You will not be disappointed!

There's a reason why Lincoln and team are rated #1.  They are that great!  The reviews don't lie.  He is that good and so easy to work with.  We booked him for our wedding in Hard Rock Riviera Maya last November 2016 as well as for our Trash the Dress session.   The pictures that he delivered to us is top notch!   I don't think anyone else could have done a better job.  My husband and I are very pleased with the quality of his work.  It's just BRILLIANT!   So do yourselves a favor, stop wasting your time searching for a photographer.  Just book Lincoln and you wouldn't be sorry.....   Because he is that good - you'll have one problem once you received your pictures.  You wouldn't know which ones to print!  LOL.   I'm having that dilemma right now, I want to print them ALL and put them up for display :)

Pros: Very responsive via email, punctual, professional, helpful, fun to work with, great quality of work
Cons: none
My husband and I got married in beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico last December. and like most brides I was very particular about the way my wedding pictures would turn out. I was familiar with MTM's quality of work already since they had photographed my best friend's wedding in Playa Del Carmen a few years back so my husband and I did not think twice before choosing to work with them. Lincoln immediately responded back and provided us with a great deal of useful information including a a website with a full list of Cancun resorts (including the resort map, size, facilities, pros/cons) as well as sample wedding photos for most of the resorts which made it very easy for me to visualize what the ambiance would look like on the wedding day. Throughout the wedding planning process Lincoln was always available to answer any questions and was very punctual in responding to my emails and any asks I had. In fact he helped recommend a great local DJ to us which we really enjoyed working with as well.  On the day of the wedding MTM did a wonderful job of orchestrating the photography and keeping us on track despite everything unexpected that is bound to happen on a wedding day! They even stayed a little past the promised time to take some shots of us partying and doing tequila shots with our guests. We did have a lot of fun working with them and now that we have received the photos we really love how beautifully they have captured our special day. The shots are elegant, natural and really capture the raw emotions on everyone's faces. We look forward to sharing these photos with our loves ones and looking back on them for many years to come. And we definitely recommend MTM to any future brides and grooms looking for a fun and professional wedding photographer to share their special day with.

Cons: NONE
AMAZING! We hired Lincoln and MTM Photography to photograph our wedding on 11/21/16 at the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe. What an amazing job he did!! He was so down to earth, personable, and laid back. I truly believe that his personality and photography style is the reason why my wedding photos came out gorgeous! He was even able to take the edge off my very anxious husband. You will Not regret hiring MTM Photography to capture your day! I definitely HIGHLY recommend Lincoln and his team if you are looking for a wedding photographer in Mexico!

Pros: creativity, pricing, ease of planning, final product, great personalities!
We booked Lincoln for our destination wedding on 11/13/16 at Moon Palace in Cancun.  Our original plan of booking a local Connecticut photographer to travel with us didn’t work out and we are so glad!   Although our resort offers an on sight vendor for photography, we wanted to do some research on external options as we weren’t super impressed with the work we saw.  We found a list of top Cancun photographers and after a little more digging, outreached to MTM and one other company.    Lincoln was quick to respond and we scheduled a quick phone call to talk details and options.  Within the first two minutes of chatting on the phone, I felt this immediate connection to Lincoln and just knew I had to book him to capture our special day.  The booking process was seamless and we opted for the Gold package to ensure Lincoln himself would be photographing our wedding.  We also selected a video option-the combined package price was very competitive and well worth it!   We were given an information form that had us provide details of the family photos we wanted.  This was great because it sped up the formal photo process and allowed us to get more newlywed pictures in and even spend some time at cocktail hour.  In addition, we filled out a questionnaire that helps Lincoln understand your style and personality.  We loved this idea as it gives MTM the opportunity to know you given that you likely aren’t having any in person meetings prior to your destination wedding.  This also was an asset because from the moment Lincoln showed up at my door, it felt like we had established a rapport.  He and Silvina (who photographed the guys getting ready) were our team and they took some amazing and creative shots knowing this was a non-stop fun group!   Everyone was cracking jokes and Lincoln was right there with us!  He is also great at providing instructions and keeping people focused.  On the day of our wedding, my husband and I commented that we could already see the difference in Lincoln’s work vs the resort photographer.  There were other weddings taking place and the creativity of MTM was shining through.  We were thrilled that we ultimately went with a local photographer rather than someone from home.  Lincoln is very familiar with the sunset timing to coordinate for pictures and some unique locations on the resort for newlywed/first look photos.   Our guests are STILL raving about how wonderful Lincoln and Silvina are and how much fun they had with them!  We just recently received our pictures and video and they are beyond stunning.  People are blown away by the artistry and all the off the cuff, fun moments captured during the reception.  We are so grateful to have these memories to cherish forever. Our only complaint about Lincoln is that he’s located in Mexico!  If only we lived closer to him so he could capture the future big moments in our lives like maternity and newborn!  (:

My Wedding Travel Agent suggested a friend of hers that just so happens to be a Photographer in Mexico. It also turns out with all my googling and research for best destination weddings photographers in Mexico that Moments that Matter Photography was the same Photographer! Rated #1 in Mexico! Wow what Luck! I emailed right away as we weren’t looking to book over a year away. We only had 8 months. Within 2 days I had an email back from Lincoln. Such a fast response! He send forth a ton of information about resorts, the best time for ideal pictures, what all his packages entail and tons of other vital fantastic information!!!! I really loved that Lincoln likes to call and have a one on one phone call to really get to know you as a couple and ask questions about what we want to be captured and makes suggestions about how many hours you may need and when the sun should be setting at that time of the year when you’re about to be married. (PS. Take the advice, I wish I had a bit more time with them!) He was so great with keeping in touch! To all the Brides out there looking follow him on Facebook , Instragram and Pinterest, look at his portfolio of work and his style, fall in love with his imagery and look at the pictures from your resort and find the beautiful spots and forward those onto him. I loved the bright and vivid imagery with the most amazing lighting and amazing scenery plus all the candid moments that he and his team always seem to capture. On the day of, Lincoln and Silvina both brought such positive energy, personality and happiness that added to the wonderful day! Down crawling in the sand, or picking out those characters on the beach that added to the environment, or just encouraging you to be yourselves and be so in love and enamoured with each other (even when it starts to pour rain), moving so quickly and quietly you don’t really realize they are there all the while letting the creativity flow and be captured beyond the lens. He really paints the whole story of your wedding day, beginning to end guests and all! Downloading of the images post wedding when they were all processed was very simple and a real treat to see all the hard work, or should I say Artwork, they created. Loved every minute working with the MTM team and the pictures were of course breathtaking and everything we had hoped for and then some! Their passion for photography shines through in their work! We are VERY satisfied customers and would absolutely unequivocally 100% recommend Moments That Matter Photography to any beach wedding couple getting married in the stunning Mexico!! Easily the Best Decision we made for our wedding other than saying I Do!
We felt so blessed that we got to have this hard working enthusiastic team take our pictures for the most amazing day in our lives! We are so proud to share and post our pictures in our home for our family and friends to see which is a true testament and compliment to Moments that Matter Photography! So to Lincoln and Silvina.... we send our hugest Thanks!!!!

Pros: Energetic, Respsonsive, Professional
We got married at Grand Sunset Princess Resort in October 2016. I have to started off by saying my husband and I were instantly impressed with the service we received from Lincoln, he was always so quick to reply to any inquiries we had. It was a little nerve racking to do all the planning through emails, however Lincoln instantly put me at ease and I knew my wedding photographs were in tremendous hands with MTM Photography! Lincoln was always extremely helpful, professional, and truly cared about his work and taking beautiful pictures of couples weddings. On the day of our photographers were Silvina Salas and Shari Erdos. From the moment they showed up they brought and amazing energy that made it to easy to take the photos, feel relaxed, and have a blast taking the pictures! They both worked extremely hard to make sure they caught fabulous shots; they both were so creative and captured all the images I could have hoped for! I was absolutely blown away with the quality of service and the outcome of the photos. It was truly a dream come true to have Moments That Matter shoot our wedding! If you are looking for astounding and talented photographers for your special day, you will not be disappointed with MTM Photography! Faron & Ryan

I would like to start by saying how amazing and professional Lincoln and his team are and I could not recommend them enough! We feel so privileged to have him take our wedding day photos and really could not be happier with them, they have exceeded our expectations! We now have some precious memories to treasure forever of ourselves and our family and friends on our special day! If there is one thing you need to carefully consider for your special day I would definitely say that would be your photographer and Lincoln ticks all the boxes. Taking photos in the heat can sometimes be quite tedious but Lincoln made it fun and enjoyable and he had some fantastic and unique ideas. We would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU again for allowing us to relive the day through our Photos! Louise & Colin xx

Pros: Price , customer service , quality
Cons: They don't photoshop much which is a pro for many
I did lots of research beforehand and was amazed by the customer service and product . I absolutely despise taking pictures and was really worried about having any decent pictures on our wedding day . The photographers were really fun and made me feel comfortable . We were sad when they left because they were so fun . Some of my getting ready pictures and reception pictures weren't my favorite but I completely attribute that to the fact that myself and my family are difficult subjects to photograph.i can count on one hand the amount of decent photos I had before this day . Our resort had a high outside vendor fee and even with paying that we still spent less and got a better product than the resort offered . We liked them so much were planning on doing an anniversary shoot this summer

Pros: Energetic, funny, professional
Lincoln and his wonderful wife shot our dream wedding and were able to capture the most beautiful and perfect photos throughout the entire day. They both were great to work with, always smiling, laughing, and reminding everyone to have fun and enjoy every moment. Both Lincoln and Sylvia went above and beyond their role as a photographer. They were apart of our perfect day and our entire wedding loved having them there. The photos they were able to capture bring back every wonderful emotion experienced that day. Going through our photos and our beautifully crafted photo video is like reliving our dream day. We could not be more happy with the quality and professionalism we experienced from this wonderful power couple. If we had to do it all over again we'd choose them again every time! Thank you both for capturing our prefect day!!

Pros: True professional, humorous, energetic, provides you exactly what you want
Cons: None
We were beyond pleased with the service, professionalism, and outcome of our pictures we received from Lincoln at moments that matter! Words cannot describe what a fantastic photographer he is! You can tell he truly loves what he does, and the pictures show his absolute talent! He was easy to work with before the wedding day, quick to respond and very understanding of any requests we had. Day of the wedding he was on time, and worked with our difficult group with no problems. If I ever have to recommend a photographer to anyone getting married in Mexico, I will without a doubt recommend him. Incredible!!!

I cannot begin to describe how happy I am with my choice to select Moments that Matter for my wedding photographer!   Lincoln and his assistant Mark were beyond my expectations!  They jumped right in and started making the everyone and everything look perfect!!  They had some very cool and unique ideas for pictures that turned out amazing!  They quickly picked up on the group 'vibe' and somehow were able to capture that in the pictures!   I don't know how they did that!   Every picture I look at I can feel what was going on and to me, capturing that memory is priceless!    Looking back, the wedding day goes by so fast and is such a blur.   I am so grateful for the amazing professionalism and results of our pictures!! Thank you so much Lincoln for capturing the memories I will have for a lifetime!    Amy and Ron F
