Pros: Stunning Photos, Truly a talented photographer, Quick e-mail/Facebook responses
Cons: Takes a long time to return photos after the wedding
We originally chose Ivan Luckie because his prices were very reasonable and his pictures seemed professional and aesthetically pleasing. I will say two things about Ivan: He takes a LONG time to return the pictures (more than 7 months for us) but...it's totally worth the wait because he also takes AMAZING pictures. Honestly, if I'd just gotten it into my head that the pictures weren't going to come back for a while, I would've stopped worrying about a particular deadline and just happily awaited

Pros: Pricing, response and vision
Cons: 7 month wait for photos (totally worth the wait but it is long)
As soon as we decided to have a destination I began researching photographers. The wedding photography was one of the most important parts of my wedding, after marrying my perfect husband of course. I spent an incredible amount of time scouring the internet for photographers in my price range. I had hoped to book Del Sol but they were soo expensive that I could not justify it. I found three photographers whose work and artistic vision impressed me. I then spent weeks looking at reviews and reall

Pros: Everything was a pro!!! the experience, the price, the staff!!!
What an absolutely amazing expierence! From the second we met Ivan and his team we felt comfortable and taken care of! It was an amazing experience and we cant stop staring at our pictures! They are getting blown up and mounted to the wall!!! Totally recommend. Thank you Ivan!!!
I have always believed that one of the most important aspects of any important day is the photographer. You get the best of the best with Ivan!   Is it possible to give 10 stars? My party was satisfied with the service and product produced by this company. When we I hired Ivan Luckie to photo shoot our amazing day.This company truly made our day stress free.   Let mention also that Ivan is a professional.  He is courteous, respectful, and most importantly, he understands. He responds to call

Pros: Professional, quality photos, great communication
Cons: N/A
Let me start by saying that you won't be disappointed if you choose Ivan Luckie to be your Photographer! He is very professional, nice, reasonably priced and responds to emails immediately. He definitely has a passion and an eye for photography. He has a very creative style which is unbelievable! He made sure to capture every special moment. I absolutely LOVE my wedding pictures and I am IN LOVE with my trash the dress pictures!!! I can't say enough good things about Ivan. He definitely exceeded

Pros: Less expensive than others
Cons: Long wait time, not very many photos, awkward styling
My husband and I booked Ivan for our wedding that took place in Playa del Carmen in 2014. Judging from the beautiful pictures on his blog we thought we had nothing to worry about as we thought they looked amazing.   We paid for 8 hours of wedding coverage and received only 400 pictures. The portraits with my husband and I were very weird, not natural poses but very POSED poses. He directs as exact as 'put your left arm up one inch, close your eyes, etc'. The end result was a lot of very awkwar

Pros: Everything!
Cons: None!
Ivan Luckie and his team were wonderful to work with. They answered all of our questions and emails in a timely manner and never made us feel like we were a bother. When we met Ivan and his team on the day of the wedding it was raining out and our wedding was outdoors so naturally as the bride I was in a panic. Ivan was calm, cool and collected and was very patient in waiting for me to finish getting ready. They were so good we barely knew they were there throughout the wedding! Our guests comme

Pros: His pictures are a work of art
Cons: none
Ivan is AMAZING! When we start to plan our wedding we had no doubt in our mind that Ivan was going to be our photographer. He is enthusiastic, creative, fun, and so passionate about what he does! We meet on a party and our family and friends love to party and have a good time, so we needed to make sure that our photographer understood that and had that same vibe and could express all the essence of the wedding in the photos and when we saw his work we knew that Ivan was that photographer. He is

Pros: Super talented, easy going, incredibly knowledgable about photography, gently guides his subjects for best shots, fun to be around!
Cons: We did have a little bit of a wait for our wedding photos, but it was totally worth it! It took 7 months for our photos to come in, which is reasonable (I have friends who waited just as long, if not longer, from photogs here in the US)
My husband & I knew from the minute we got engaged that we wanted to have a destination wedding. It wasn't until we started really looking into locations and vendors did the reality of leaving our wedding in the hands of strangers, thousands of miles away, hit us. With that looming over our heads, we dove into reviews and vendor websites head on and I literally made a spreadsheet of every photographer (and other vendor) we could find. I don't remember exactly how I came across Ivan Luckie an

First of all I have to say that I am in love with my pictures! They are so beautiful and perfect. I am so glad I have chosen Ivan to be my photographer. I researched many different options but Ivans photojournalist style was what i was looking for and by looking at his portfolio on his website you can tell how much passion he has for what he does. Getting in touch with him was easy and his response time is extremely prompt. My husband and I are usually dont like having our pictures taken but Iva

Ivan created magical moments from our wedding in his photography. All of our friends and family said our photos should be on the cover of a magazine! They are breathtaking and I'm so glad we hired him to document our elopement so our friends and family could share our moments later. He was willing to work with us despite we had a small elopement and we had so much fun taking pictures around San Miguel. Even my husband who doesn't always enjoys taking pictures had a great time! He even came early

I hired Ivan for our wedding and OMG my pictures turned out amazing! Our wedding was in the Royal Playa del Carmen, I had some troubles during the day with the planning and Ivan was so helpful and offer to stay a bit more for the wedding delay, this was so great! He is a super nice guy!, he also capture all I wanted, the colors are brilliant and he uses light as anyone!   Now I can remember the day as If I were there again, thank you to Ivan!! I never hesitate and do not regret   Ivan was on

Pros: All
Cons: No
We looked photographers for a long time, research all the Riviera Maya for this, we found some very pricey and some other affordable photographers, we could not decide on any because the expensive ones didn't fill out eye, there were that we could not match with our idea, the less expensive was the same situation, we could not find any real difference. As we know memories are the only tangible thing, pictures were the top of the list.   I don't know how we ran into LuckiePhotography website, w
Pros: Passioned, honest and more important with a unique eye
Cons: nothing
I got a really nice deal good Price super quality and talent in it, especially compared to other photographers in the area. We brides usually pick the photographer looking at the portafolio, so it could be kind of luck of the draw for personality of the photographer you have. Luckily Ivan was amazing and his personality totally matched our needs, his wedding visión, his style. We saw our pictures in an fancy online gallery, very well made. We order also my album and I fall in love with it, more

Pros: Impeccable use of light. A true passion for photography. Finally = RESULTS
Cons: NONE
From the Groom perspective:   Absolutely love Ivan as a person and a photographer.  He makes the whole process easy and comfortable.  His communication is first rate.  He responds very quickly to email requests.  Some as quick as a minute.  His response time definitely helped my wife feel comfortable that the picture part of the destination wedding was taken care of.    Why Ivan on the photography side?  First and foremost:  RESULTS!!!!  His passion for photography and his impeccable use of

Pros: Great style! very competitive prices!
Cons: nothing
I am so thankful that I wanted to write about Luckie Photography service, I am so happy on how my wedding pictures turned out, since the first moment I talked to Ivan and after seen a lot of his work, I knew I had to have him, as a person he is great, as an artist he is unique, as a business man he is always there for me when I needed, I am not sure how to say all this, but I think this is clear   I just keep looking and looking at my pictures and me, my friends and family we all are transport

Ivan has an excellent communication, he answers emails in less than a day, sometimes in less than a minute, for real! he answered me all my questions and I had no doubt he was the right one, his photos shows his passion as well as the information in his website, I loved the way he offers visual and text information about him, his amazing work  and everything else I need!   On the wedding day he was great and easy to work with, he is s super nice guy as well as his assistant.   I got my pictu

Pros: Everything perfect! couldnt have asked for a better Photographer
Cons: wish i would have hired him for honeymoon portraits :(
We had our wedding on April 7th, 2014 at the Gran Caribe Real Resort in Cancun, and I cant express how happy we were with Ivan! he is amazing at what he does and just felt extremely comfortable with him! We had an amazing time during our portraits and he made every moment worth it! It was super windy and he managed to exceed all of our expectations! we still haven't received our pictures since its busy wedding season but we cant wait to see all of his hard work! I'm sure they will be perfect and
Pros: AMAZING AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS!! Very very professional!!
Cons: Ivan was a little backed up and short staffed, so it took longer than the anticipated 90 days for our photos...However, he did communicate with me constantly and reassure me that I would get my photos
We used Ivan Luckie photography on 09/01/2012 for our Cancun, MX destination wedding, at the Gran Caribe Real/THE Royal and it was probably one of the best decisions we made! My only regret is that I didn't allow for more time with him to take more photos.    After researching the internet endlessly, (and determining the resort recommended photographer was NOT for us), I fell in love with Ivan's style. I am not one for too many posed photos, or for over edited, unrealistically enhanced photos.

Pros: all about Ivan Luckie Photography is PROS!
Cons: Nothing to write!
We just get our wedding photos and my first word out of my mouth is WOW! all my family and relatives also raves about the pictures, I had no doubt I made the right choose, I can not say and thank enough, Ivan was fantastic! we capture great moments of me, my husband and my family and friends.   We got around 400 pictures and, believe me, I had a hard time selecting my favorite, this means to me I am blessed finding Ivan in my way, such a gift guy for such an important day is not just that easy
Pros: great journalistic, amazing creativity on portraits, affordable, great person!
Cons: I would cancel this field because there's nothing to write in here! just great things!
There are no words to thank Ivan Luckie for doing such a lovely work, I did not realised he was all around, when I saw my wedding pictures, I immediately figure out that he was capturing all the real moments that were going on during the day, he insisted that his photography is true and honest, nothing manipulated and I was super excited to have a real story, well he doesn't disappoint me actually he amazed me!! and now I look at my pictures time after time and I remember the day perfectly, ever
