Pros: Everything Pro!! :)
Cons: NO CONS AT ALL!!!
Mike and his assistant were phenomenal. Our wedding photos were breathtaking and exceeded my expectations.
He went above and beyond for my husband and I as we had no idea we could take pictures on the beach.
They were really professional, fun and kept it exciting. I'm so very glad I used them and HIGHLY recommend them. Thank
You again Mike, we love our video and pictures!

On my wedding day, Mike and his assistant captured touching moments, amazing scenery and everything in between. They are such genuine, kind people, I am so glad i chose them as my photographers. It was so much fun to do the poses they instructed us to do, and they even let us do our own thing! We received the cd of images within one month after the wedding and we couldn't be happier with the results.

Thank you so much Mike for everything :)

Mike and Mike were great!
I had my wedding at The Grand Luxxe, so the wedding coordinator gave me a few photographers to pick from. They were very reasonably priced and did beautiful work! My wedding also ran a little behind and they didn't seemed bothered at all by it. They were fun to work with,and captured all the beautiful moments from our special day. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone getting married in Rivera maya

Pros: Everything, great photos, helpful, professional, knowledgeable, creative, easy to work with and on time!
Cons: Nothing!
I researched many, many photographers for my wedding at The Royal in Playa del Carmen. There are so many choices, but after much research, I selected Mexican Wedding Photos. I am so glad I did. Mike and his team were incredible, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The communication with Mike leading up to my wedding was fantastic. He answered my numerous questions via email and in a very timely manner.   On the day of the wedding, Mike and his team arrived on time and went to work capturing the day right away. We opted to have two photographers in order to maximize our photos and I am so glad we did, it was worth it! Mexican Wedding Photos captured everything, starting with shots of me and my bridal party getting ready and lasting through the duration of our reception. Mike and his team were easy to work with, professional, knowledgeable, creative and friendly—we loved having them as part of our special day. They took photos of everything. And, our photos turned out incredible! My husband and I are so pleased with the quality of our photos, the amount of photos we received, the shots they took and the way they truly captured our entire day for us to remember forever—we had a hard time selecting our favorites, as there are so many we love! I strongly recommend working with Mike and Mexican Wedding Photos. I am so glad I selected them for our wedding photography!

Pros: response time, Mike, friendliness, fun
Cons: Lomas should have more packages for them. So no cons for MWP
YOU WILL LOVE MIKE! You know you have the right vendor when you give them a huge and not a hand shake! My husband said Mike was the best person we worked with in Mexico.
I was so confused on how to choose a photographer. It is a huge decision and I was scared of making the wrong choice. Once I looked at the reviews online I liked Mexican Wedding Photo. After waiting 14 days for Lomas to respond, I contacted Mexican Wedding Photo myself. A long response time isn’t very comforting for brides-to-be. And Mike at Mexican Wedding Photo understands that. He responded normally within minutes or within the day of. Which was great. He helped me choose a package that would work for me. I loved that while he was with my fiancé and me for getting ready photos his assistant was at the ceremony site getting photos. I loved how they captured all the special moments. There are so many things you can spend money on for the ceremony that you cannot take home with you. Photography is something you will have forever. My only regret is we didn’t have the photographers for longer. We had 3 hours and thought that would be enough. Had we had longer I would have had photos taken around the resort. Don’t get me wrong we got tons of great photos!!
I love our photos! They are great! Our ceremony was Saturday and we met Mike Wednesday and he had put together a photo album and given CDs of all of our photos and also prints. It was great to have a photo album to show people when we got home. It would have taken me forever to decide on photos and to have them printed and put together an album. Everyone loves the photos.
A trend for 2014 is an unplugged wedding. It is controversial. After looking at tons of photos where guests were out stretching in the isle and blocking the photographers or when photos of audience were taken and all you saw was screens and lenses and not their faces I knew I wanted something different. Destination weddings are very intimate. You have closer shots of your guests. The ceremony space is beautiful and magical. And cell phones and outstretched arms can ruin a little bit of the magic. One of the best parts was seeing our guests’ faces and having moments with them during the ceremony. Moments of them being in the moment. In a pre departure email with wedding weekend details I asked:
“Since the ceremony is very intimate and you will be part of the photos and memories, we ask that you be fully present by turning off your cell phone and leaving your camera in the bag. (If Jessica can do it, you can too J.) We have the photography covered, so be sure to give them your best smile, not a picture of your camera or cell. J We want you to enjoy the beauty of Mexico and share in this special moment with us. You are all important to us, and because of this, after the ceremony we will have a group photo, and once home we will share all the professional photos with you. The greatest gift you can give us today is just being fully here with us, enjoying every minute.”

The photos turned out great! And I shared them with all the guests through shutterfly. And emailed each person all the photos they were in.
Choose Mexican Wedding Photo you won’t regret it.

Pros: Professional, On Time, Quality Photos and Video, GREAT Price
Cons: None
I used this company when preparing a special marriage proposal to my partner Jeremiah. We are a same sex couple who vacation at El Dorado Royale every year. I arranged with the on site wedding department to have video and photos taken of our special moment. I picked this company because of the great reviews online and the value in the price. Not only did we get what we wanted, we got even more. The video and photography team were on time, friendly and helpful in helping me keep the secret of the surprise proposal. They also suggested fun poses that worked to create beautiful pics. The return time was exactly as stated on their website and we had our dvd and photos before we returned home to the USA. Also the editing done on our video was great as we were able to choose the music we liked and they made it fun smoothly on the DVD!

Our photos and video are nothing short of amazing. We posted our video on Youtube and it has over 7,000 views and our photos capture the moments perfectly. Highly recommended.

With the most important day of our lives getting closer and closer we decided to do some research into what company we were going to use to capture our wedding day and preserve it for us forever. We looked at lots of videos, websites and wedding services and after much homework we decide to email  MEXICAN WEDDING PHOTOS  as his pictures and videos looked much better than others that i had seen. We wanted to know what sort of photography package would suit us best. We wanted pictures and a video to capture our special day.  We were having our wedding at The Moon Palce Golf and Spa Resort, Cancun, Mexico, in the middle of November. I sent a few questions to  Mike and he responded immediatly. He told me that it was my day and that whatever i wanted could be accomodated. We agreed a price and i was really pleased with the fact that we had booked MEXICAN WEDDING PHOTOS On our speacial day both Mike and Alex arrived on time and began to get to work. Mike  was taking pictures and Alex was taking the video. Both were very knowledgable about how to get the best possible pictures and video. I want to say that they were both very professional and friendly. We aranged to get the video and the photo discs just before we were due to fly back to the UK and they did not disapoint. Once back in the UK we both were delighted with the video and the pictures. I would definatly recomend MEXICAN WEDDING PHOTOS .My husband has a friend who has his own photography studio and has shown him the work video and the pictures and he agrees with us, that they are very well presented.   Thank you Mike and Alex for capturing our wedding.   IF U WOULD LIKE TO KNOW KNOW MORE ABOUT MEXICAN WEDDING PHOTOS PLEASE EMAIL ME  YOUR QUESTIONS, I WILL ANSWER THEM ALL ;) HOPE THAT WILL HELP U MAKE YOUR DECISIONS ;)

Pros: Beautiful photos, fast delivery, professional and courteous
Cons: None
We hired Mexican Wedding Photos, namely Mike and Alberto, to cover our wedding and trash the dress session in the Riviera Maya in August 2013.   Mike responded to my communications in a timely manner, answering all of my questions and calming my nerves prior to heading down to Mexico.  In Mexico, we gave our resort's wedding coordinator his information and vice versa.  On the day of the wedding, Mike and Alberto showed up on time, made us and our families and friends feel very comfortable and were always there taking great shots, but never in the way.  We had asked for a trash the dress session the next day as well, but once we realized that we would want to sleep in and recover after our wedding night, we asked Mike if we could move it and he graciously moved it to the day after that at 930am which was a reasonable time for us.  We were very grateful for this.  Due to rain and some resort issues on the trash the dress day, we were both late, but Mike made up the time and guided us through the resort, getting all the pictures we could have ever dreamed of.     I had asked Mike if he'd be able to give us proofs or rough drafts before we left Mexico, as we had our honeymoon the following week at a different resort.  Mike had told us no problem, and not only does he show up a week later to meet us, he gives us DVDs with about 800 pictures, and all our printed pictures as well.  I couldn't be happier with his service and then once we saw the pictures, we were blown away.  Beautiful pictures taken from different angles between Mike and Alberto gave us more than we ever expected.  Now the tough part is narrowing down which are our favourites!   I highly recommend Mike and Mexican Wedding Photos for their beautiful work, professional service and calming demeanor along with his super fast delivery times.  Thanks Mike!

Pros: Beautiful pictures, affordable photo packages, professional photographer, great customer service, always on time
Cons: None, other than I wish these guys were in the US so I can use them more often.
My fiance and I hired this company to shoot some pre-wedding shots for our scrapbook and website. Our photographer's name was Alberto and we absolutely loved him. He was early, excited to work with us and and he delivered the most stunning final images. We also received our pictures very quickly (in one week). My fiance does not usual get excited about things like this, and even he was in awe. Anyway, we want to thank the guys at Mexican Wedding Photo for the wonderful job they did from the initial contact all the way to the delivery of our photos. We really appreciate their contribution to our wedding experience!

Pros: quality, price, friendliness, creativity of pics
Cons: NONE
We were a little nervous about picking a photographer we had no clue about, but we read the reviews and decided to go with Mike.  Well the reviews didn't lie.  We could not have been happier with the level of service we received, quality of the pictures, and the photo session in general.  Mike was on time and ready to start taking pictures.  He first went to the grooms room and got some great pictures of the guys getting ready.  He then came to my room and got some pictures of us girls getting ready.  I can't say enough good things about the wedding photos we received.  Mike found out we were going to be at the resort for another week, and he said he would try his hardest to have them there before we went home.  We were so happy to find out we were going home with our wedding pictures :).  We have had so many compliments on the pictures, they are just so impressed with the pictures.  We really felt the cost was fair as well.  THANK YOU so much Mike for capturing our big day with such beautiful pictures, we are very HAPPY with everything!!  I would recommend Mike at Mexican Wedding Photos!!!!   Thanks, Kendall and Jason

Everything about the photography on our wedding day was fantastic.  Mike made us feel very comfortable from beginning to end.  He got us to do some crazy things to get the shots, but in the end those are the pictures we love the most.  He was very creative!  We were most shocked when he met with us in the lobby of our hotel the day before we were to leave Mexico and had an entire album ready for us plus larger prints as well as the DVD of every shot her took.  Most people we know had to wait months before getting to even SEE any of their photos!  We were very impressed with Mexican Wedding Photos and would recommend them to anyone!

Pros: High quality, professional, timely, easy to work with, communicates well
AWe were thrilled with our wedding pictures! As we were traveling from the US without family or friends to serve as backup photographers, we chose to upgrade from the basic photo package the El Dorado offered. This was a great choice as we observed a wedding the next day where the photographer seemed mediocre at best. Miguel was amazing! He was creative, easy to talk to, created several to-die-for shots, and got us our proofs amazingly quick. Do not hesitate to spend the extra money- he is well worth it. This is by far the best spent money of the entire wedding.

Pros: Great to work with, understanding, good communication, very professional, great ideas/creative, affordable
Cons: none
We booked Mexican Wedding Photos after reading other reviews and looking at their photos online.  When we got our photos back, they took my breath away.  I know everyone probably thinks their wedding photos are the best, but ours were truly breath-taking.  We had so many compliments from friends and family.  Family members said some of the photos look like they belong in a wedding magazine, which I agree with. It was a pleasure working with this company from beginning to end.  Their communication via e-mail is amazing.  They got back to me right away any time I had a question.  They were quick to send us several "teaser" pictures just days after the wedding and we received our full album a few weeks later.  The price is really a steal for this photography company.  We also had the videography through the same company, which was also great.  Very professional and easy to work with.  Since I am a wedding videographer myself, I critiqued the video a bit harsher than the "average" viewer because I know what it takes to edit the film.  For the price, I was happy with the video, but the editing could have been a bit smoother with transitions and special effects.  Overall, the experience with Mexican Wedding photography was exceptional.  I really cannot find anything to complain about.  They were on-time, professional, fun, easy to work with, and made it easy to just enjoy our wedding day.  You will not be disappointed if you choose this company for your destination wedding!!

Pros: Professional. Encouraging. Passionate. Easy Going. Fun.
From the start these guys were very profession and replied to email enquiries quickly and efficiently. They lived up to all expectations on day. We chose the video/photo's package for friends and family back home who couldn't be there on the day and these guys have produced the most amazing work that has captured our day prefectly.  Me and my husband were given free reign to really bring our own personalities to the images and this instantly relaxed us and meant that Mike and Alex were able to use their expertise to get some stunning shots. They guided us when they needed to and the result was shot after shot of breathtaking pictures and a video that is edited perfectly.

Choosing a photographer for our destination wedding made me very nervous since I wouldn't meet our photographer until our big weekend.  Of all the decisions and details involved with planning a wedding, this was the most critical for me.  After reading reviews, I chose Mike from Mexican Wedding Photo for our wedding at El Dorado Royale.  We were not disappointed.  We just received our photos and LOVE them.  All I really wanted was just 1 or 2 photos good enough to frame and show family and friends.  Instead, we have dozens of great pictures to remember our special weekend in Mexico.  Mike came the day before the wedding to photograph pictures of my husband and me and our family at our beach BBQ.  All of my stress disappeared as soon as he started shooting. He was professional and made us feel very comfortable.  He knows the resort well and captured our emotions perfectly.  On the wedding day, he was just awesome.  Overall, we had a wonderful experience. Mike was always prompt in replying to emails and was a great person to work with.  You won't be disapointed!
