Derek and Lorena are the best photographers and so much more. We had them photograph our wedding 3 years ago in Florida and were so happy with the results that when we visited Cancun last week we had to have an anniversary photo session with them. The pictures are incredible, and we have such a large variety to choose from. The USB key they provide with all the pictures is a genius idea. We love that we can see them almost immediately after the session and do not have to wait weeks, months or ev

Pros: Everything!
Cons: None
Derek, Lorena & their team are the real deal. They are accommodating, professional, easy-going, and extremely good at their jobs. My husband and I cannot stress enough how glad we are that we chose photosincancun for our wedding day. We knew that they had done a few weddings at Azul Fives prior to ours, and as a courtesy, they offered to split the 800$ vendor fee with us. When we had our video call with them, we instantly got along and felt at ease with both Derek and Lorena. They answe

Pros: Great quality, Super Friendly, Awesome People
Cons: NONE!
Choosing photos in Cancun was the best decision we made for our wedding! Destination weddings can be quite intimidating. Unless you have a lot of money, you don’t get a chance to go see everything and meet vendors or photographers before the actual wedding day. You just have to do a lot of research and hope that you can come across the right people. Thankfully enough, we found Photos in Cancun and everything was perfect from start to finish. Before the trip, they are very good at communicating a

My (now) husband and I used Photos in Cancun, Derek and Lorena for our destination wedding at Azul Fives last May. I truly have nothing bad to say about this experience. We contacted Derek and Lorena and they got back right away, wedding planning can be a mess sometimes and honestly I had no idea how long we would need them to cover, where to take the pictures etc. They gave me a lit of options to choose from and basically set the timeline of my wedding for me - which seriously was the best thin

Derek and Lorena were absolutely amazing!!! Easy to communicate with from the US prior to leaving for Mexico.  Very quick to reply to emails.  They even recommended facetiming prior to our arrival so they could get to know us a little.  They listened to our desires and gave us great tips for the day of!  Extremely knowledgeable about the local area. We got married at Azul Fives Resort in Playa del Carmen and they knew all the best spots to take photos.   Day of the wedding they were extremely he

We got married in June 2016 at Moon Palace in Cancun.  Derek and Lorena were an amazingly pleasant addition to our day  :)   From the very early stages of planning everything, they were a breeze to work with.  They responded to e-mails and questions in a timely manner and I could tell that they are passionate about their work and care about their clients.  The day of the wedding, they arrived and quickly got to work.  It was a scorcher of a day as you can imagine - and they were prepared!  Loren

We hired Derek and Lorena to do the video for our wedding in November . They were great from the moment we just inquired all the way until today - over a year after the wedding! They were kind enough to split the $800 outside vendor fee charged by our resort with us and still went above and beyond our contract in making sure we were happy and had everything we were looking for. Even though we had only hired them to do video, they ended up taking some photos of us in the pouring rain that were ab
Pros: Everything! Communication. 2 for the price of one. Great personality. Truly passionate about their trade. Great photo quality. Awesome direction.
Cons: Nothing!
I hired Lorena and Derek to photograph my surprise proposal in Playa Del Carmen and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! They did everything they could to accommodate us and they far exceeded my expectations! They even took the time to help me plan the proposal weeks before the big day! Their communication was awesome via phone, email and whatsapp. And the rate they charged was extremely fair for the amazing service they offer.   Being a surprise, they had to arrive to the venue early, wo

Pros: Everything! Beautiful images, quick responses, fun photographers
Cons: nothing
We hired Derek and Lorena to photograph our January 2017 wedding at the Now Sapphire resort. Honestly, they were one of the best parts of the wedding.    They worked with us in the weeks leading up to the wedding - making us feel comfortable with them, giving us tips for the wedding, giving us ideas and inspiration and just generally getting us excited about the experience we were about to have. They were so open and caring - offering to bring us anything we may have forgotten.    They arriv

We got married at Azul Fives in Playa del Carmen in August 2016 and we used Photos in Cancun for our photography. To say that they were absolutely amazing is an understatement; we cannot say enough good things about them! Derek and Lorena were so easy and fun to work with. They really cared and took the time to get to know us leading up to our big day. We appreciated how they really made the day about us. From the moment they showed up at the resort they really made us and our guest fill special

Pros: Easy to work with, AMAZING photos!!
Cons: Nothing!
My husband and I got married at Dreams Riviera Cancun on 10/1/2016.  We only had a small amount of people come with us (8) but one thing that was really important to me was the wedding pictures.  The wedding package we got included 1 hour of photography which just wasn't enough.  It was pretty expensive to hire the resort photographers and even paying the outside vendor fee, I found Photos in Cancun to be a much better deal.  I loved the fact that I got all my pictures and would get them all rig

Pros: Everything - quality of work, caring, friendly, positive energy, price
Cons: Nothing
We recently got married at Azul Fives in Playa del Carmen in November and we used Photos in Cancun for our photography and videography. To say that they were absolutely amazing is an understatement; we cannot say enough good things about them!    We decided we didn't want the headache of flying a photographer down from Canada to photograph our wedding, so we started researching photographers in and around the Cancun area. We read several reviews on several different companies and we reached ou
Pros: EVERTHING!! Great photos, Great to work with, Great prices!
Cons: NONE
For those who haven't selected your photographer yet, I wanted to share my incredible experience with Photos In Cancun. I am hoping that it will help some of you make this important decision! After a lot of research, we decided to hire Derek and Lorena to photograph our wedding because of the quality of their work. However, while working with them throughout the planning process and the big day, we realized how fortunate we were to work with them because of so much more than just the quality of

Pros: Great price, Multiple photographers, easy to work with
Cons: Can't think of any!
We got married in August at Now Sapphire in Mexico. Pictures were a huge priority for our wedding. Our wedding package included a photographer, but we were concerned that a resort photographer for an hour wouldn't be enough. It was stressful trying to plan a wedding from across the country, but once we found Derek and Lorena, we were instantly at ease. We were first intrigued when we saw photos that were taken at a wedding at the same resort, they were amazing! Once we started planning, everythi
Pros: Amazing Photos, Reliable Company, Very Friendly
Cons: None
I booked Derek and Lorena for my wedding in November 2015.  Their photos online looked great and I wanted to make sure we had fabulous pictures.     I didn't do a hotel wedding where everything was included or packaged.  I found out after booking our venue and trying to plan the rest of the details that not everyone responds in a timely fashion.  Derek and Lorena were the only ones to respond quickly.  They even offered to call people on my behalf when I explained via email I couldn't reach ce

Pros: Amazing photographers, very professional and quick to respond to any questions, great quality hi resolution photos, great price
Cons: None
We had our wedding in Nov 2015 and decided to contact Derek and Lorena to see if they were available for our wedding date. Thank goodness they were! Both were very prompt getting back to e-mail questions and they both really "got" our vision for the wedding. The prices were by far the best that I could find. On the wedding day they were very organized (thank goodness as I was in a surreal cloud state). They were also above and beyond  generous- following the wedding they came back to our resort

Pros: Great communication, beautiful work, they go above and beyond!
Cons: nothing!
Derek and Lorena were amazing to work with form our very first email to the edited photos of our wedding! I found Photos in Cancun through another bride who got married at our resort (Azul Fives) and she had nothing but amazing things to say about them. I was even more excited when I found out that Derek was from my hometown. Derek and Lorena both were very quick to respond to all of my questions and provide not only advice as photographers but general wedding advice that was very helpful. We we

Pros: Friendly and efficient service, professional photo service
We had a fantastic time working with Lorena and Derek! We decided to do an engagement/save the date photo session in Cancun last minute and luckily Lorena and Derek were available! Lorena and Derek were very experienced and familiar with the area. We stayed in Beach Palace and they offered to take us the the nearby beach to do the photo shoots. We got up at 6:45am as suggested by Lorena and we caught the sunrise in our photos which look amazing! Lorena was very thoughtful as she would constantly

Oh my gosh....where do I start!!  First of all, my husband and I cannot say enough about how amazing Derek & Lorena were to work with!!  From the initial contact via email, they were quick to respond and answer any questions we had which helped us feel at ease, especially when you're trying to book something that is very important from miles and miles away!  We loved the fact that Derek was originally from Ontario Canada which is where we're from thus making communication a breeze.....and we

Derek and Lorena were exceptional! We got married Feb 3rd, 2016 at Azul Fives and they made the day go flawless, without them we couldn't have imagined the day going so smoothly! From our initial contact, they seemed knowledgable and you could tell they took passion in their job! They set out a time line for the day from our initial first couple e-mails. It helped me get an idea on how the day was going to go. They took interest in every detail I had envisioned and made sure before we even left

Pros: Everything! Quality, professional
EXCEPTIONAL! We hired Photos in Cancun, Derek and Lorena for our wedding on January 26, 2016 at Azul Fives. Photos in Cancun were phenomenal to work with from start to finish. They were very responsive throughout the process. They always emailed back and were very professional and knowledgeable. They were able to provide a timeline on how the day should be broken up and it worked out perfect. A few days after the wedding, Derek and Lorena, met up with us at the hotel and provided us with 4 US
Pros: Extremely talented photographers! Reasonable prices! Quick delivery!
My husband and I were married at ERC in April 2014. Although some photography was included in our wedding package, we opted to hire outside photographers (and we are SO glad we did!). I am definitely one of those people who reads every last review before making a decision and I am extremely particular. Derek and Lorena did not disappoint!! They took SUCH good care of us on our wedding day. They actually met us at our hotel a few days prior to the wedding. My husband and I instantly felt comforta
