I am so extremely grateful that I hired Claudia Rodriguez as my wedding photographer for my May 2016 wedding in Akumal, Mexico. My wedding photos turned out absolutely beautiful. Myself, my friends and my family members cannot stop raving about how gorgeous they are. Claudia was prompt and easy to communicate with via email prior to my wedding, she was reliable the day of the wedding, extremely professional and very kind. She had the photos ready for me within the timeline and specifications laid out in our contract. Most notably, however, is how talented she is. She has a special gift; an eye for light, surroundings, colors....I could go on and on. I highly recommend her and cannot thank her enough for capturing my special day so perfectly.

I was introduced to Claudia from Mike.  Claudia and her team were phenomenal and beyond compare. We had been looking for wedding photographers for quite some time (i had alot of options before Claudia) and once I saw some of Claudia's work I had a feeling they would be the perfect team to capture those special moments during our wedding (since Claudia and Mike works best together). During the day of the wedding everything worked flawlessly. They were so easy to get along with and so accommodating. My only advice to future brides/grooms is to have more time in between ceremony and reception so that you are not rushing. My ceremony was at 4 and reception was at 6.  It was extremely rushed for me, I didn't have time for touchups and had to rush to change, it still works out in the end, as I am not very high maintenance, but if you are, you definitely needs all that time for second look.  Claudia and her team made it felt effortless for posing, especially a husband that hates taking pictures, they were very patient with him.  We paid for TTD but we didn't end up using it because my husband is a boring person and doesnt want to do it; we told them to keep it as a gift from us, and they are worth it.  They are certainly worth every penny and we are so glad we chose to go with them and wish them all the best in the future.

Pros: great photographer, prompt communication, easy to work with, professionalism, teamwork
Cons: none
My wife and I researched and contacted multiple photographers. However after reading reviews and looking at Claudia's work we decided to go with Claudia and her team and can't be any happier. So easy to work with, so professional and the end result - stunning pictures!    First of all, great communication start to end. We asked Claudia about the time of the ceremony and she suggested a time frame that would be the ideal for light for our location at Playa. Despite our smaller wedding party, she arrived not alone, but with an assistant and tons of equipment. We felt we are in good hands right then. Throughout the ceremony she and her assistant worked in tandem for light, switching cameras and all needed as if they knew the place, while in fact that was the first time they were at that temple. We did some pictures around a cenote where Claudia managed to make the best out of it despite the very little light. Then we went to the beach where Claudia led us from scene to scene like in a theater play. It was so much fun, I can't believe the amazing colors.   The delivery of the pictures was within the promised delivery time frame and pictures are absolutely gorgeous.    So my advise - go with Claudia and you won't regret it. Don't even hesitate.   Rudy & Alexandra Yonkov

Pros: Best bang for our buck! Easy Communication! Trash The Dress!
Cons: none
[sharedmedia=gallery:images:82507] [sharedmedia=gallery:images:82506] [sharedmedia=gallery:images:82505] [sharedmedia=gallery:images:82504] Being a photographer myself, my choice of Wedding Day photographer was more important than the dress itself!! It was also a bit nerve racking to research photographers in another country. Claudia was easy & complete with her communicate before, during & after the Big Day! After  researching 7 photographers in all price ranges (from the "free with your resort package" to high end "more- than- my- car" budgets), Claudia was hands down the best choice!  She captured a great selection of posed/portraits, spontaneous candids  & high-end, fine art images all with great lighting & very natural editing! Claudia's prices are worth every penny for  those priceless Wedding Day moments!  The Trash The Dress session was by far our favorite part of the entire Weddingmoon and the photos are simply GORGEOUS!!!!! Claudia did not disappoint! Now that it is all said & done, we don't regret paying the vendor fee to bring Claudia on site. She is experienced with our resort & took us to her favorite cenote for Trash The Dress... the photos are proof that she is an expert in lighting & love!

Pros: Amazing pictures
Cons: None at all
We chose Claudia Photo based on her online portfolio. There were really no close seconds once I saw her pics. Her and her crew were absolutely amazing. I can't imagine things being any more perfect. A lot of the resorts charge a fee to have an outside vendor but all you have left to remember the day is the pictures. I can't imagine trusting something so important to anyone else. It is well worth the vendor fee and more to have such an amazing person/photographer capture your day.

Pros: Beautiful Pictures, Accommodating, and Reasonably Priced
Cons: None
Claudia was recommended to us by a co-worker and she didn't disappoint. She was very patient through our planning process and very accommodating as we had several mix ups with the resort. The day of the wedding she was very good at organizing our group of 43 for pictures. Pricing wise I have no complaints, very reasonable and flexible. Lastly and most importantly the pictures turned out very beautiful!

Pros: extremely gifted, friendly, funny, accommodating
Cons: zero
Claudia photographed our wedding 5 years ago and for our anniversary, we had Claudia take family portraits with our two young daughters. First of all I STILL get compliments on our wedding pictures from people who have seen them online or guests in our home. I even have had multiple friends worry before their own weddings in the States that their photos won't capture the beauty and memories like Claudia captured on our wedding day. She sets the standards high.   Our family session was the same experience as out wedding day. Claudia is warm, funny, accommodating, and makes you feel like you talk to her on a daily basis. Obviously on your wedding day people tend to cater to the bride and groom, but we were so happily surprised to find Claudia to be just as helpful during our family session. Watching her play with my 2 year old who was cooperating a little less than we would have liked put us at ease. More importantly, it put my toddler at east and she was able to capture moments that translated into BEAUTIFUL photographs.   Claudia is an extremely gifted photographer and I would highly recommend her. The only con is that I don't live close enough to be able to work with her more often. Here's to planning our 10 year anniversary session! :lol: [sharedmedia=gallery:albums:18086]

Pros: Amazing job!
Cons: None
Claudia Rodriquez from Claudia Photo Wedding Photography did an amazing job!!  She is very talented in what she does. My sister used her when she got married 5 years ago and I knew when I decided to have a destination wedding, that I would use her too.  She is very responsive to emails and will answer any questions you have. 
 
The day of the wedding she showed up ready to take pictures from getting ready to first look pictures, the ceremony, cocktail reception, family pictures and then the reception.  We used her for 5 hours and I wish I would have used her for 8 hours since she did such a beautiful job!!! Her pictures captured all the moments I will remember for a lifetime. She was very professional and really knew the best shots to take. We decided to do first look pictures and I am so glad we did. When the wedding was over, the sun was going down. She sent me over 700 pictures to keep and I received them super fast within 2 months of the wedding. all of the pictures were so special and beautiful  :)  If you would like to see some of the pictures, just PM me and I will send you some. I will try to post some here as well!

Pros: Professional, great sense of humor, warm and exciting to work with
Artistic, Imaginative, and Ingenious are the first few words that come to mind when I think about Claudia! I must admit, I was a bit nervous hiring a photographer without meeting them not to mention out of the country but after reading Claudia's OUTSTANDING reviews, I knew we did not have to look any further.  Claudia not only made taking pictures easy, funny, relaxing but she captured the surroundings of our wedding beyond what we could of ever imagined. We were married Saturday evening and leaving Monday afternoon which did not give Claudia alot of time to process our pictures. Being the professional she is, Claudia met us at the airport in Cancun and delivered our disc to us. Claudia is a wonderful professional photographer!!!

We went to Cancun to celebrate our 5 years anniversary. My wedding pictures from Brazil didn't turn out good at all, so we decided to get somebody really good that could take our Anniversary pictures. Browsing online I came across with Claudia's website and her pictures. I loved her stile, so I decided to get in contact with her. She was very fast to respond to my emails, always super helpful and nice.   When we got in Cancun, we were a little concern about the photo shoot because like I said before, we had a very bad experience in our wedding in Brazil. My husband was very uncomfortable and feeling a little overwhelmed in the beginning of our session. Claudia noticed this right away and start changing the way she was shooting to make him feel more comfortable. After 30 minutes or so, he was relaxed and enjoying the experience. Claudia drove us for 2 hours to different places, she found us the perfect locations with the beach and sunset of our dreams.   When we got the CD with our pictures, we had a great surprise...the pictures were so beautiful! They were absolutely perfect. The background with the beach and sunset were breathtaking. We could not be happier!!!   We can't wait to go back to Cancun with our boys to take some awesome family pictures with Claudia!!!   Thank you, Claudia for this experience. We love your work and we will be coming back for more pictures.

Pros: Amazing talent, responsive
Claudia was our photographer at our wedding at the Grand Palladium Riviera Maya. The prep time photos were great she captured the moments with my mother and my bridesmaids beautifully while her assitant did the same for my husband and his brothers. She even had some tips to help with my makeup since I was doing it myself to make sure everything would look amazing in the photos. The ceremony and photoshoot after were great! She makes the best of her surroundings making it look like you are in a far of selcuded grove while you are only a few feet from the main beach.  As a couple we do not think we are very photogenic but we love all of our photos. Every photo we received from Claudia shows us in our best light and captures the joy of our day.  Beside her talent she is also very professional answering questions and emails promptly and being very straight forward with her approach and costs. She never tried to upsell us to anything we did not want and performed her best for us.

Pros: Prompt, Easy to work with, Great photos
We hired Claudia for our wedding in April 2013 at Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun, Mexico and everything turned out wonderful!    After doing a ton of research of photographers in the area, we chose Claudia because we liked her style and it matched well with our personalities. She was very prompt and easy to work with! She provided a quote right away and answered all questions and concerns about the big day. She always followed-up, which was reassuring, since you have so much on your plate.   On the day of, she arrived on time with her assistant and went straight to work. Everything on the day of went smoothly. She was very creative and all of our pictures turned out great!   After the wedding, we were sent the website address to view the photos in a timely manner and later received a CD with all of our photos. In the middle of this process, I chose a picture that I wanted to use on our thank you cards. I asked if she could send me the file first. It was in my inbox the next day!   Overall, the experience working with Claudia was great. I personally think it's very important to pick a photographer that matches with your tastes and personality. It also goes to say that the extra fee in hiring outside of the resorts is worth the price to get what you really want!

Pros: Prompt e-mail replies, friendly, attention to detail
I had my wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace in May this year.  I chose Claudia as my photographer after reviewing the gorgeous photos on her website.  This is what I love about Claudia.  She LOVES her work.  And she loves to capture the moments, which is exactly what I was hoping for.  The photos she took for me came out in radiant colours, she perfectly captured the sunset in the background, and the little moments (a tear, a laugh, a hug, some hilarious dancing later in the evening - not just of us but also our guests).  She promply replied to all my e-mails and gave me advice on how to do my hair (keeping in mind humidity is brutal and the wind is not always your friend either... LISTEN TO HER ADVICE) and prepare for the big day.  She is incredibly sweet, so friendly in all her e-mails, and also very professional when it came to the big day.  She was on top of everything, she knew the best locations for photos, brought every little thing you could need in case of a mishap (she even had scissors and lip gloss for me)... I felt like I had a two-for-one deal - photographer and wedding manager. It is obvious she has done this a million times before. She told us where to stand and how to pose which was definitely helpful because I am no model by any means.  My only tiny critique would have been that she could been even more detailed about how we posed - maybe a hand in the pocket for the groom, or move in a couple inches in spacing... but that being said, she didn't have a lot ot time to work with (we gave her a little more than an hour for posed shots with the wedding party and alone) and she was trying to make time to capture the light in different settings too.  My advice would be give yourself a little more time if you can - a couple hours at least for shots, especially when you have hired someone as skilled as Claudia.  Make good use of her!  I also loved how she remembered what I told her - this is my better angle, and she ran with it all day... arranging herself and others around me to make me look good.  I'm no Ariana Grande with my demands but it was greatly appreciated :)   She promptly delivered my photos in 2 months as promised, definitely gave me more than the minimum number of shots agreed upon.  Thank you Claudia for helping me preserve the memories of my perfect day in the best way possible.

Pros: Great Price, Great Quality, Easy to work with!
We couldn't have picked a better photographer for our wedding!     When we decided that our wedding would be in Cancun I immediately contacted Claudia.I knew of Claudia because one of her associates had photographed my sister's wedding four years ago and I loved her work. She was extremely easy to work with, any question I had she responded at her earliest convenience - she was super flexible. It was so much easier to work with her than the coordinator at our resort.    The day of the wedding she showed up on time and was extremely friendly, this helped because my nerves had kicked it. Her personality is great, she's so easy going but professional - none of the poses felt forced everything was so organic. My entire family loved her, she was great! You can tell she has many years of experience, she knows exactly what she's doing and is constantly finding new angles to capture each moment and make it memorable.    Six weeks after the wedding day, she sent me the link to all of the photographs from the wedding day! I love them all!!! It was so difficult for my husband and I to pick out the pictures we wanted to order without filling our entire walls with pictures from the wedding day!   I definitely recommend Claudia! A++

Pros: Professional, Responsive, Incredible Photos, Worth the price!
Cons: None
We had our amazing wedding celebration in Riviera Maya, Mexico on July 21st, 2014 at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso Resort. It was by far the best day of our lives. We used Claudia for our photography and she, along with her amazing team were fantastic. She was so professional with the entire process.   Before the big day: Claudia was very responsive via email in the months leading up to the wedding. We secured her approx. 8 months before the big day and she was willing to answer any questions or concerns we had until the day arrived. She was great at giving pointers for the wedding day, knowing weather and knowing when the best times to take photos were was a big help.   Wedding day: Claudia arrived right on time to begin taking photos. She was great in helping us all with poses and locations to take our photos. They turned out amazing! It was great never feeling that the photographers or videographers were ‘in the way’ throughout the ceremony or the reception. I didn’t even know they were there during the ceremony. Claudia and her team did such a great job and I would highly recommend her to anybody. They were truly worth the Vendor Fee your hotel may charge you. I’ve been staring at our photos from the moment they arrived and I can’t stop. Thank you Claudia!!!

Pros: Very Organized, Wonderful Communication, BEAUTIFUL photographs
Cons: none
Planning a destination is way more challenging than I thought it would be.  Most vendors averaged a week or more to respond.  Or, when they did respond, my questions weren't answered.  There is one exception  to this statement though.  Claudia was absolutely WONDERFUL.   I looked at many websites and photographers and kept coming back to Claudia.  I compared rates and quality and reviews and it was actually a very easy decision to make.   And, from the first time we emailed until the moment I got my DVD of pictures, and everything in between, I was very satisfied with her.   And day of, so relieved to have Claudia as the photographer for our wedding.  She showed up and captured beautiful pictures of my husband and his groomsmen as well as myself and my bridesmaids.  And, when the hotel did not deliver a cart as promised to take me to the first look location, she called them to get it there ASAP for me.   Our first look pictures are wonderful and then the pictures of the two of us are artistic and beautiful.  Her ability to capture candid moments is great.   Formal pictures and party pictures, couldn't be happier.  Of course, our favorite is a sunset photo during the cocktail hour.  She knew exactly when to set up and get the perfect sunset photos.  Seriously, if having those beautiful colors in your pictures on your wedding day, you couldn't do better than Claudia!

Pros: Did whatever she could to help a bride out
Cons: none
Claudia was amazing from day one when I contacted her about booking a wedding in Mexico. She did whatever she could to get me the package I wanted within a reasonable price range. She always answered any emails I sent her in a timely manner. I never once was worried things weren't going to work out. She didn't just act like a photographer to us she was a friend. Very friendly, sweet, and fun. She made our experience very pleasant. We didn't just get photography from her. We ordered welcome bag for our guest from Claudia. Whatever we wanted for our bags she made sure to find it for us. It was very nice not to have to travel from the states with welcome bag items. It was one less thing for us to worry about. I received our pictures over a week ago and they were everything I ever wanted plus more. She made my fairytale wedding come to life in our pictures. She was a sweetheart and I couldn't imagine having anyone else being our wedding photographer. We loved Claudia and her assistant and recommend her 100%

Pros: professional, talented, calming, personable
Cons: none
From the beginning, Claudia was personable and responsive.  She always responded to our emails and questions in a timely manner and worked with us to come up with a plan for the day.  She arrived in Cozumel early and came to check in with me before her scheduled start time.  She even helped me communicate with the make-up artist I was using.  She has the perfect combination of calm confidence.  She is so comforting and peaceful, I really appreciated that.  Armando was assisting her that day, and, together, they captured such beautiful moments and memories.  The resort had its own photographer, so we were able to compare images they took at exactly the same time...there is not comparison!  The exposure, the saturation of color, the lighting, it's hard to believe they were taken simultaneously.  The resort photographer's photos look like snapshots compared to the magazine quality photos Claudia's took.  We feel lucky to have had Claudia with us on our special day. Oh, and links and DVD's were sent to us in exactly the timeline she promised.

Pros: Quality pictures, good communication, ensures positive experience
Cons: She can't stop the rain :(
Even though it rained for most of our wedding day, Claudia managed to use the clouds, darkness, and light to her advantage. Before the ceremony, she was snapping photos and calming me, as I was stressing about the weather. Thankfully, the clouds broke, and we were able to have the ceremony outside, followed by a brief photo session. In the few moments we had, during and after our ceremony, Claudia captured beautiful expressions and posed us with amazing backdrops that made for magazine-worthy pictures. Even when the rain returned, she continued to shoot beautiful pictures inside our house, completing the day.

Claudia is excellent at communicating in a timely manner. She is flexible and works hard to ensure your happiness with the end result. She is excellent, and I highly recommend her services!

Pros: Professional, personable, easy to talk to, prepared, skilled. Fantastic, really.
Cons: We couldn't take her with us to MN for our second wedding.
“You’re so photogenic!”  Believe me, no one has ever said that to me until they saw our wedding photos from Claudia.  She is awesome!  Easy to work with, easy to communicate with, great suggestions – a totally great package.  Like most of the comments here, it’s tough to select a photographer from a distance but she made our decision easy.  The BDW web site was great for looking at the various photographers but when I saw Claudia’s work, I knew she was the one.  I picked four photographers and asked them each to send a full wedding shoot for us to compare.  Then I asked my (then) fiancé which one he liked the best.  Without discussing it first, we both picked Claudia.  I was hooked on her shots of the scenery.  Including the wedding couple in the scenery made it even more fantastic!  Someone else mentioned that her photos look like magazine shots.  They really do!  She also did a great job of close ups and capturing all the moments.  We have several shots of us with birds overhead.  I wasn’t so sure about that at the time, but one of the reviews on this site recommends that you “go with her instructions and you won’t be sorry.”  We did, and those shots are awesome!    Claudia was on time, organized, helpful, funny, and great with our grandkids.  Yes, we had our four granddaughters in our wedding at the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo on April 13, 2014.  We had a small group, (20 guests) so we were able to get lots of photos of everyone.  The photos on the beach after the group shots are so spectacular!  She made us look GOOD!   Claudia asked us how we met and what types of photos we wanted.  She was really good at getting the shots we requested.  My husband and I met dancing and we wanted lots of photos of us during “our” dance and of our guests line dancing.  They are really fun to look at.  Our dinner ran long and Claudia was able to stay a bit longer to capture the dancing and the cake cutting.  We really appreciated her flexibility.   We had to pay extra for Claudia and her assistant to be on site, but she was worth it.  I’m telling you, she is so easy to work with.  Her emails are prompt.  She was great at calming me down when I was worried about everything coming together.  Our photos were posted on line when she said they would be.  She even sent us a few ahead of time so we could take them to our 2nd wedding in Minnesota.  The things we do for family!   Claudia also put together gift bags for our guests.  I hadn’t really thought about doing that as I didn’t want to bring a bunch of stuff with me on the plane and take the time to put them together.  I wanted to spend time with our guests.  Claudia offered to put something together for us and they were just as nice as her photos.  I know our guests enjoyed having the treats to take on the plane.   I can’t wait to get the enlargements back and up on our walls.  Claudia takes photos that you are happy to look at for years to come.  You can’t go wrong with her.  I hope your wedding is as fun as ours was.  If you go with Claudia, I know your photos will be great!

Pros: Wants to capture the best...a true artist! :)
Cons: Nothing!!!!!
As we near our second wedding anniversary in our new house I'm excited to be purchasing our wedding photos, FINALLY, because I have somewhere to put the OUTSTANDING moments that Claudia captured to help us remember truly one of the best days of our lives.    We had an amazing and unforgettable wedding at Xcaret Ecological Park at sunset.  I didn't want to see my husband prior to our Catholic ceremony and Claudia worked with us and new that pictures to capture the unforgettable moments were of utmost important to us!  She was able to schedule a day after the ceremony to come back to the park and work with us for a few hours.  I know ladies, this may seem like a pain, but, I didn't want to see my husband and was so grateful she was able to accommodate our request!~   We took pictures with our bridal party prior to the ceremony and Claudia did a great job of leading us around the park to capture the natural beauty of where we were at.  When I wanted to take a few pictures in areas that were closed she did what she could to make sure it happened:) and truly made it special.  She listened and captured what meant the most to us. Claudia did an excellent job of trying to get us to take real pictures in the moment and not just posing.   o is more like it!  I was devastated and thought that was it we were out of luck our photo shoot was over.  Without hesitation, Claudia said she would come to our hotel, which was beautiful, and we would finish our time there.  She said we captured many beautiful pictures at Xcaret and that we could take different ones with the ocean and the grounds at our hotel.  This was so reassuring!!!  Yes, it was not ideal to spend another day on my hair and make up and getting dressed but how many people get to say they wore their full dress three times! :)  Thinking positive!  Not only did she come to the hotel and take amazing pictures, some of my favorites; when I mentioned a spot at the hotel I wanted to go to and we were already out of time...she did not hesitate and took us to the spot on wanted past our allotted time frame.  She is an incredible person in general and amazing photographer!  I hope to be back to Mexico with our daughter that we will be welcoming to the world in August and utilize her for some family photos in the future.  Claudia, thank you for helping capture the best moments of our life.  I truly love looking at our photos and remembering the magic of the day.  God Bless! :)  Stephanie Miles

Pros: Very friendly, professional, responsive, amazing photos
Cons: None
My Wife and I were married at the Riu Caribe Hotel in Cancun on 12th April 2014. Like everyone else I'm sure, when it came to looking for a photographer to capture our special day it is a bit of a daunting task! there are so many to choose from and how do you know who to choose?! As soon as we came across Claudia's website we knew instantly that we must have her for our wedding day. Some of the pictures that she has took are incredible and seems to catch very natural beautiful pictures. She has also got a very good knowledge of the Cancun area which you could see by looking at her portfolio. Even when we first started emailing Claudia she was very understanding of how difficult if is to choose a photographer for a destination wedding and was very helpful. She even sent us some galleries of her recent work at weddings to allow us to see what kind of pictures that she takes, it was safe to say we were very impressed. Claudia was always very quick in replying to our emails even if we were asking the obvious questions, always very friendly and great to chat with. she went through her standard packages with us and let us know that if any of these didn't suit them she could make a tailor-made package to meet our requirements. We made sure that we booked Claudia well in advance (over a year!! lol) to make sure she was available and she kept in contact with us regularly during this time. She asked us personal questions to get to know us as a couple i.e. where we met, our interests etc which i thought was a very nice touch. On the wedding day itself, Claudia and her brother arrived early and while Claudia went straight to our room to take pictures of the bride and bridesmaid, her brother came to my room to get me and the best man getting ready. they both snapped away while we were getting ready making sure not to get in the way and getting some great shots. While Claudia stayed in the room with my wife, the rest of our wedding party met in the reception area while Armando kept taking some pictures of our party together. During the wedding Claudia and her brother continued to take pictures capturing great shots of peoples reactions without getting in anyone's way, i actually forgot they were there!! after the ceremony we all headed to the beach to go though some photos that we had requested of Claudia and she was more than happy to fit these in to our schedule. We never felt rushed and Claudia was always making suggestions on what to do to get the best pictures. Claudia and her team are very professional and know how to use the light and her surroundings to get the best pictures that she can. When we got home Claudia made sure we knew when our pictures were posted on our online gallery for us to have a look at and show our family and friends. Everyone was very impressed with the quality of Claudia's work. I couldn't fault Claudia and her team at all, everyone we dealt with was very friendly and always helpful. The picture you will get from your special day will stay with you forever and we couldn't be happier with our choice of wedding photographer! if you are considering a destination wedding there is only one place you need to visit for all your photography needs and that's Claudia wedding photography

Pros: Efficient, Friendly, Professional, Personable, Flexible, Talented, Acountable, Creative
Our wedding was Nov 6, 2013 held at the Grand Princess Riviera in beautiful Riviera Maya. I have to say I was nervous at first about finding a local photographer in Mexico because I did not know what to expect and how I was going to arrange all my wedding details with them. Despite my nervousness, I started researching and looking for local photographers. I saw Claudia's portfolio and I immediately knew I wanted her as my wedding photographer. She has extensive experience in the area I was getting married in. I could tell this because of all the different wedding resorts she has been to. The pictures I saw were beautiful and the style I wanted.   Claudia is very quick at responding. She addressed all my inquiries and had consistent follow up. She asked about all the details of my wedding, (even some details that I had overlooked!). I can tell by the questions she had asked that she is very professional. She asked about my ceremony, total attendees, and other after party details.   On the day of the wedding, Claudia and Armando arrived at the site and to the bride's and groom's hotel rooms right on time!! Upon arrival they immediately started snapping pictures. I was so impressed that they came on time and got started right away. During the day sessions, Claudia and Armando instructed the wedding party how they were to assist bride and groom. I enjoyed being part of the pictures without worrying where I should stand or how I should pose because the professionals, Claudia and Armando had it all planned out. It was especially a bonus because Claudia had been to our resort before and knew all the good spots to take pictures. During the ceremony, they respected the guests by not being in the way of the couple so much but they were still able to capture the magical moments in spots that still captured everyone's reactions, laughs, tears and joy. After the ceremony, they organized the group to make pictures with bridge and groom in a very efficient and professional manner. We had a party of 27 and we were able to get through everyone in less than 1 hr. I did not feel rushed, I did not feel they were rushing. It was so easy doing business with them. Claudia knew when sunset was that day and we were able to capture sunset pictures and it was beautiful!!! The clouds that day and evening was fantastic and definitely a bonus to my wedding pictures. In the evening during dinner time, we invited Claudia and Armando to join us for dinner. Even after a long day, they were still up and about snapping pictures of guests and bride and groom.   After the wedding and coming back home to Canada, Claudia followed up and worked diligently to upload my wedding pictures online for my review and to share with family. I was so impressed with the pictures!!!! Claudia and Armando did a wonderful job and I would most definitely recommend anyone! ANYONE going to mexico for their special day to contact Claudia wedding photography.
