Pros: Professional, Creative
Cons: None
Our wedding was in May 4th, in Riviera Maya and received our video just few months later in August! Very VERY happy with the quality and craftsmanship! We gave them some instruction and everything was perfect!! The drone footage is our favorite! They really know what they were doing! The short version of the video captured the most memorable moments and the long one (almost an hour long) had all the details. We needed to make few changes and Mike get back to me right away and helped finishing up. We highly recommend them and you must get the drone!! :) It was worth every single dollar!! I would hire them again!!
Pros: Quality, Communication, Price
Cons: None
When my husband and I started planning our destination wedding in Cancun, I was set on having a video of our ceremony to share with relatives that couldn't attend in person (and for our memories).  I looked at the resort's photography and videography options and was concerned that they were pretty expensive for a limited amount of time and I wasn't sure what the skill level would be.  My cousin mentioned that her friend had used Mike Cantarell and Cancun Wedding Video.  She showed me her friend's highlight video and I thought it was fantastic. I reached out to Mike and got a response really quickly.  It is difficult planning a wedding in a different country via e-mail but one of the things that impressed me most was that Mike was amazing at communicating!  He would respond quickly to my (many) questions!  They were accommodating to what we were looking for and reasonably priced . We also went with them for photography -- which also turned out amazing!  The price we paid for both video and photography was less than what we would have paid through the resort (or what people pay for just photography in the states) and we know the outcome was so much better! By the time we met Mike and his team in Cancun, I felt like I already knew them! They were timely and well-prepared! My husband and I were surprised that it was a team of four, very professional men.  Guests commented that they are very professional and they had very good equipment.  They captured our day both with photos and the videos perfectly!  We received our photos after about 2 months and they were amazing.  We received our highlight film and full length video in a little less than 3 months which I thought was great.  The first time my husband and I watched the highlight together, we both became emotional because it brought us right back to the special day.  We were able to select music and the way Mike edited the videos was so well done.  It far surpassed anything we expected.  We are so grateful that they captured the best day of our lives and we look forward to reliving it for years to come.  I cannot recommend Mike and his team enough to anyone having a wedding in Mexico (in fact I almost told my friend in WI to fly them in for her wedding here!) . You will NOT be disappointed!

Pros: Beautiful Video (pro #1!), on time, accomodating, communicative
Cons: None
Cancun Wedding Video and Mike Cantarell specifically were recommended to us by our photographers as they were the folks that they used when people ordered packages. We weren't doing a package because we didn't feel we needed the videographer for the same amount of time as our photographer. Mike worked with us through our photographers on the time allotment and went over very clearly the cost and what we would get at the end. On the recommendation of our photographers we hired them and could not have been happier with that choice.   During the wedding it became clear that we had underestimated how long various parts of our wedding would take (It didn't help that the shuttle with the Bride in it ended up being about 20 minutes later than the others to the venue). We conversed with the Cancun Wedding Video team and they graciously allowed us to add an extra hour onto our package at a nominal cost. This meant we could get our first dance and part of the post dinner reception.   After the wedding we knew it would take a couple months to edit the video. We checked in once just because we were impatient people hoping maybe it would somehow take a little less time. It did not and Mike was great at telling us when to expect the video. I am thrilled to say he delivered on the exact date he told us we would have it and when we first watched it we were blown away by how amazing it was. They didn't just present a straightforward edited video that told the story of our day chronologically. They edited it so that the ceremony was part of the video in chunks, segmenting other great highlights from the day. They used songs from our service, cocktail hour, and reception to score the video (note they never asked us about this - it was just an amazing touch that really made our video feel even more special to us and that they paid attention to that level of detail).   When we first hired them we only ordered the lengthier version of the day thinking if we wanted some quicker highlight reel we could edit it ourselves or ask friends (we work in entertainment industry and have friends that are editors). After seeing the great care and beautiful presentation we had for our near hour long video we purchased the highlight reel from them as well and got a beautiful six minute highlight. Finally - there was one moment from our wedding that did not appear in either video and was one of my wife's favorite moments (it had likely been edited for content as it was not an all ages appropriate toast). I inquired if they had that on film and within minutes they sent me three versions of the clip. It was amazing!   If you are looking for high quality videographers who are incredibly accommodating and able to adjust on the fly then look no further - hire Cancun wedding Video. We know from our jobs that editing video can be time consuming so I know other reviews mentioned the wait but it was completely appropriate and most importantly - they were exactly on time with delivering an amazing video. Thanks again Mike and team!

I cant even begin to describe how nervous I felt booking a vendor I never met before. Let me TELL YOU. IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE. Mike and his team were amazing. They showed up on time, was comfortable with them as a matter of fact you did not even know they were there. I was so excited to get my video. THE QUALITY THE MOMENTS THE VIDEO WILL BE A LIFETIME memory I will treasure and cherish forever. Mike you are incredible and I am so glad I chose you to make these memories happen. If you want the best hire Mike.    Love always Jamie and Mark Howder Wedding 9-25-16 Riviera Maya Hard Rock

Pros: Flexible
Cons: Took awhile to get the video (but sooo worth the wait)
We hired Cancun Video to capture our wedding in December at Finest Playa Mujeres resort.  They were very professional, gave us different package options and were very easy to work with.  Jerry did a superb job capturing our special day.  Jerry and his assistant worked really hard and captured the most amazing shots.  They knew exactly the time and location for the best sunset pictures and during the ceremony we barely even noticed the cameras next to us which kept the ceremony intimate while still capturing every detail on video.  The equipment they used were top notch and although it took some time to get the video it was totally worth the wait.  We were really impressed by the quality of the video and can't stop watching it.  It was absolutely perfect. We highly recommend this team.

When we were planning our wedding having a videographer was at the top of our list because we knew a lot of couples who regretted not hiring one for their wedding. Making sure we hired the right person to capture the most important day of our lives was very important to us. When we stumbled upon mikecantarellfilms website we fell in love. All the Same day edits were amazing. We literally ended up going through all of them. There was something about the videos that just stood out from all the other ones we had been looking at for months. We knew we had to book him right away. When we met Mike he went through every detail with us. He was also very flexible. Mike and the crew were extremely professional and were so awesome to work with. On the day of the wedding they made us feel natural and very comfortable. Most of the time we didn't even realize they were there (in a good way). My tip to you, is to get a DRONE.  It is the best decision we've made, even if it costs a little more.  The drone made it so much more dramatic and cool. Family and friends approached us to ask who we hired because they loved it and thought it was wonderfully captured. We still cannot get over how amazing the final product/full day coverage also turned out. Everything was perfect and this will be cherished forever. We are so happy we chose Mike and his team and would not hesitate to recommend them to any couple getting married. The timeline is on point too, definitely worth the wait.  I was very anxious every single day waiting for it, but WOW, I can wait another year if I have to for their amazing job.  It's like he created a movie for us, there were ALOT of mishaps during the wedding day, and the film made it looks so perfect that all those mishaps were forgotten.
Cons: None!
We received our wedding highlight video for our December wedding at Beach Palace last week and it is AMAZING!!!! We absolutely love it and it has captured our day PERFECTLY! Every single important moment was included from getting ready, the ceremoney, the speeches and the reception! The music and images were seemlessly blended together and I cannot stop watching it because it brings me back to that wonderful day! Mike and his crew were great to work with up to the wedding, on the day of the wedding and following our big day! I have ZERO hesitation recommending hiring Mike for your videographer!

We had our wedding in January at Azul Fives and Mike was fantastic to work with! Initially videography was not in our budget but in the end it became a really high priority as my mom and my husband's parents couldn't make it to our wedding due to health reasons. We were able to squeeze it into our budget but found ourselves with only a month to find the perfect videography team to capture our wedding. Mike was recommended to us by our photographers Photos in Cancun and luckily Mike was available for our wedding. He was able to work with us on our tight budget and were amazing on the day. We just received our highlight video and love it!   Your day goes by so quickly that a wedding video is the best way to relive this amazing day!

Pros: Everything
Cons: None
My Husband and I could not more than happier with Mike's work and professionalism. He was amazing to work with. Not once did we have any issues. Planning a wedding in a different country for us as we live in the U.S can be very difficult. We were looking for a certain type of video and as soon as I found Mike's website. I immediately fell in love with the style of his work. I felt as looking at other videographer vendors his work was by far the best. Mike also made this experience very easy. He listened to everything that we wanted and did just that. He Captured every important moment and it was absolutely breath taking. I watched our wedding video and it brought tears to our eyes and also our family and friends. We felt as though we were in that moment again. We are so happy that we chose Mike and would absolutely recommend him to anyone that is looking for an amazing professional videographer. Although we had to pay a vendor fee for Mike to come onto the resort. Money well spent and would 100% do it again.

Pros: Responsiveness, Quality, Quickness
Cons: None
Planning a destination wedding can be stressful. Many times you have to pick out flowers, decor, venue, photographer/videographer, going off of pictures or recommendations. Mike Cantarell was referred to me by one of my close friends. I was having a difficult time finding someone who not only was in our price range but provided amazing shots/footage! I am so happy I chose MIke Cantarell and his Wife, Claudia, to capture our special day! Both Mike and Claudia quickly responded to emails, which made communication miles away effortless! It's unfortunate resorts limit you to options for photography for your wedding as they like to slap on a hefty "outside vendor resort fee", but Mike and Claudia's portfolio was incomparable to the resorts photographer option. I can honestly say... IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!! I thought to myself, these are my life-long memories, I should't feel I should sacrifice the quality of pictures/video I was seeking, just because of a resort fee.  The Day of the Wedding Mike and his team made everything run smoothly. Both Mike and Claudia arrived on time and ready to go! Nothing was scripted, nothing was forced. My Husband and I were just in the moment. Mike and his team would work around what we were doing, which I loved because it didn't take away from any moment!!! Not only did we receive our pictures and video 3 MONTHS after our wedding, but they were amazing. I shed tears watching our wedding video, reminiscing the best day of our lives. If you are having your wedding in the Riviera Maya area, YOU MUST check his work out. You will not be disappointed! THANK YOU MIKE, CLAUDIA AND BOTH OF YOUR TEAMS FOR YOUR AMAZING WORK!!! I COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR MORE!!!
Pros: Everything!!!!
Cons: Honestly, just paying the extra resort fees to have them but it was WORTH EVERY PENNY! Don't regret it AT ALL!
I have to say when I was planning a destination wedding in Mexico, finding the perfect videographer and photographer was the hardest thing. The resort I stayed at only allowed their local photographer and if I wanted someone else, I would have to pay an additional fee which was ridiculous. My husband is a photographer himself in Canada and knows what to look for and what constitutes as a quality picture of video. In the end, we decided to go with Mike Cantrell for video and Claudia Rodriquez for Photography. It was costly for us because not only did we pay the photographers but also the resort to bring them in. With this being said, I have never been more happier with our decision. They had a team of at least 5-7 people around us at all times and they were super friendly and adjusting in every situation. I truly felt like the paparazzi were around but I can't even explain how gorgeous they work turned out for us in the end. They never missed a moment in my wedding and the quality was AMAZING! If you're planning your wedding in Mexico, regardless of the additional charges you may have to pay... I want you to think, do you want the perfect pictures and best wedding videos of your life or are you okay with the basic stuff? Remember, you're spending money to have your perfect wedding and you need the best pictures and videos to showcase and keep those memories forever. Mike Cantrell and Claudia Rodriquez can provide you with that and much more. I promise you!!!! They are definitely worth EVERY penny I spent without a doubt. I know that when we have our 25 year anniversary we'll come back to the same resort and have them shoot our event again. We loved them!   
Cons: None
Wow! My husband and I were blown away when we received our highlight videos from Mike in such a timely manner, but we just finished watching the Main video now and we are more than satisfied. He did an awesome job. Everyone who we shared the highlight video with was amazed. We used his service for the “Welcome Party” that we hosted the day before the wedding and absolutely loved how he fused that day into our wedding day. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job Mike. When we met with you last year during our site visit, we knew the other 4 videographers we met prior to you wouldn’t meet our expectations. Thanks for not failing us. Even though Palace Resort is a bit stressful with their outside vendors, our memories of the day in addition to the videography took us back to our wonderful wedding. May God continue to bless the work of your hand. Future Brides- Please do yourself a favor and book him- You WONT regret it! When the wedding is over, you need to have quality video and photos of the day because everything will fly by so fast.  Mike- Your professionalism is like none other. The end result is definitely worth every penny we spent! Thank You again!

Pros: Creative, professional, prompt, responsive!!!!
Cons: NONE!
Mike and his team were absolutely perfect. Mike was easy to work with (from New York) to select the best package for my wedding at Nizuc with 180 guests. He was flexible and gave great advice about timing. His team was professional, prompt, and also worked seamlessly with my photographer. My guests never knew there was a videographer present (neither did I - even during getting ready!) and so the shots are all incredibly natural. His team captured the right people, places and moments and created the most beautiful footage of our wedding. Mike was responsive and EXTREMELY HELPFUL and willing to work with me choosing the right music and edits during the editing process to make sure I received exactly what I wanted (which I did). I would HIGHLY recommend working with Mike and his team!

Pros: Fast response, creative footage, natural shots
We hired Mike and his team for our wedding at Barcelo Palace in April 2015. Right away, I was thoroughly impressed with Mike's fast response to my questions and his willingness to accommodate. He even gave me a call a month prior to our big day to go through what scenes are important to me and what our day will look like. When him and his team arrived while the girls and I were getting ready, he was very professional and nice. He really just blended in and took a lot of nature footage which I appreciated and very much liked! We recently received our summary video and I was in tears the whole time! He was able to capture all the important scenes we spoke about and actually went above what I expected. If you're getting married in Mexico and you're looking for a videographer, you will be very happy by choosing Mike! 
Pros: Professional staff, well done editing, video just like a movie
Cons: None
Mike Cantarell and Eduardo Cedillo from Mike Cantarell films did an amazing job!!  They are very talented in what they do.The day of the wedding they caught every moment with their continuous filming from getting ready to first look pictures, the ceremony, cocktail reception, family pictures and then the reception. We used them for 5 hours and I wish I would have used them for 8 hours since they filmed EVERYTHING and did such a beautiful job!!! The highlight video was done perfectly. It captured all of our precious moments in 6 minutes. The music and editing was just like a movie. I highly recommend doing a cinematic film video. It is well worth it.  I watch it over and over again and it bring tears to my eyes. Everyone who has watched it tells me how beautiful it is and how it makes them re-live the moment. It also brings tears of happiness to their eyes. Thank you so much Mike and Eduardo for making my wedding video so special and beautiful :)    If you would like to see the beautiful work they did. Here is the link to our wedding video :)  We got married on 12.14.14 @ The Royal Playa Del Carmen.   http://mikecantarellfilms.com/index001.php   (Samara & Michael- The Royal-Playa Del Carmen)

Pros: Great work
We hired Mike Cantarell for our July wedding at Secrets Maroma in Riviera Maya. They did an amazing job! His staff helped us when we were feeling more than overwhelmed, they were punctual, professional, and courteous throughout the whole process. Their work was outstanding- I watch my highlight wedding video often!!


Thanks mike!

Pros: timeliness, professionalism, creativity, courtesy, communication, responsiveness, understanding
We hired Mike Cantarell and his team for our Nov 2014 wedding in Cancun.  He and his team were extremely courteous and very punctual.  Looking back on all the vendors we worked with, we'd have to agree that Mike and his team were the best to work with.  They covered all of our events beautifully.  We asked that they create a 5 minute highlight of our wedding to play at Reception, and they were able to capture enough footage to put together an amazing edit that we've been watching daily ever since.  Mike and his team are an excellent choice for your videography needs.  They go above and beyond the call of duty.  We had music requests for the video and they even took those into account.  Furthermore, we had 3 days of events to cover, but Mike and his team made it to every single event well ahead of time and were all set to capture everything.  We couldn't be happier!

Pros: Incredible work, professional, responsive, and on time.
Cons: None.
Mike and his team did an amazing job with our wedding video.  Mike was kind enough to come and meet me in Tulum before the wedding to talk about what we wanted in our video.  He and his team were on time, and totally professional.  They also finished our video when they said they would, and the finished product was incredible.  They were responsive with emails, and for the quality of their work, reasonably priced.  HIGHLY recommended. 
Pros: Video quality and profesionalism
Cons: none, great experience all around
We couldn't be happier with our short and long videos captured and edited by Jerry and Eduardo! We particularly recommend getting the highlight video, as we've watched it over a dozen times in the past 6 months.    Before the big day: They were happy to discuss any questions about the big day via email and responded promptly. When we first arrived in Cancun Jerry and Eduardo took the time to meet with us at our hotel and to discuss the logistics of our wedding day. They were professional, knowledgeable, and open minded and allayed many of our fears and anxiety about the day. As luck would have it, they also have a good relationship with our photographer and coordinated with him (Juan Navarro) throughout the day.    Wedding day: Jerry and Eduardo were punctual, prepared and ready to go on the wedding day. We decided the day before to switch to cinematography type video and they had no problem with it. They went above and beyond and were extremely flexible. They also worked with the venue to make sure everything went smoothly. While filming they were very discrete and inconspicuous.   Video: The video was the best investment of our wedding! Many friends and family members have told us that the highlight video was the best that they have seen. They did an amazing job editing the video and putting it together in a creative but fluid manner. We love watching it and they did a perfect job capturing all of the moments. The long video is broken into chapters so that you can choose to watch certain parts of the wedding/reception. We couldn't be happier with all of the time and energy they put into making us an amazing video that we will always cherish!!   Jerry and Eduardo were exceptional, and we are so glad we booked Cancun Wedding Video!!! We highly recommend them for your wedding, you won't be disappointed!

Pros: Affordable, Professional, Amazing
Cons: None
We had our most memorable 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 and it couldn't have been as great without the amazing Videographers we had. Mike Cantarell and his team were extremely professional and helped capture the most amazing moments of our day. We loved that we never felt they were in the way of the ceremony or reception and were still able to get every little detailed moment of the day on film. The team works closely with the photographer we chose (Claudia Rodriguez) and they all did an amazing job making the day extra special. I can't recall a single issue or complaint and all of our guests raved about how professional the entire team was throughout the process and the actual day. Using Mike and his team as well as outdoor photographer, Claudia Rodriguez is definitely worth the possible vendor fee you may have bringing them onto hotel grounds. They were by far much more capable of putting together an amazing video and taking photos than the photographers we were offered through the hotel. I would pay the vendor fee and day passes over and over again to use a great team like this. Hands down the best decision we made!

Pros: Quality, Friendly, Professional...ALL
Cons: None..
Wedding June 18, 2014- The Grand Mayan- Riviera Maya.     I contacted Mike Cantrell 10 months before the wedding and explained my situation.  A surprise wedding for the bride and guests!.  Mike was so professional and accommodated the needs. I only wanted a photographer but he suggested the video and I am so glad I listened to him. The photographer and videographer came punctual to the room and did some shots at  my kids and I getting ready.  My wife was at the spa getting ready for a "photo session at the beach".  I was so nervous but the crew was so friendly and professional that felt they were friends doing the job.  Thank you Miguel and Lalo for all the amazing work.     Waiting for the pictures and video is the hardest part,  My wife was so anxious!  However is worth every day the wait.  I was extremely impressed by the quality of their work.  The video was of course HD but also captured every single moment.  The photos was my absolutely FAVORITE part.  I can't believe the incredible colors and how clear they are.  It really looks better that real life and I really mean that.    Miguel was great as suggesting poses and lighting.  This was my second wedding-same bride twice.  Just that I wanted a wedding in Mexico and wanted my kids to participate.  So capturing this unforgettable moment with my kids was extremely important.   The original video is about 60 minutes.  I made this clip including pictures so I can post it of facebook so my family and closest friends can see it.  So I am posting is here if you want to look at it.  I don't do reviews often but Cancun Wedding Video by Mike Cantrell deserves a great review. Mike....Muchisimas Gracias.  Que dios los bendiga!   Cesar Salazar Durham, North Carolina   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8izA6y2t0o&list=UUxlvsto_XYWy8L44M3E2LbA

Pros: Punctual, professional, great eye for cinematography, captures all the imporant and little moments
Cons: None
I just received my wedding video in the mail and have spent half of the day just watching it over and over.  Mike, Jerry and his team did an AMAZING job capturing my wedding and all the little moments that I would never have noticed if not for their talented ability to film.  I had my wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace this year a couple of months ago, and hired Mike and his team for 6 hours to cover my day.  They did such an amazing job - above and beyond.  I had a fantastic photographer (Claudia Rodriguez) and I know most people hesitate to hire a videographer as well, but let me tell you, after viewing the videos, I have NO regrets and am SO GLAD I decided to have them come.  Even though Claudia was amazing at catching those little moments... there's something video does that can never be quite captured by a photo.  The ambiance, the mood, the little expressions on everyone's faces as they are preparing for a pose, the conversation, the music... and the PARTY!  These are things I am so glad I got to see in my video.  And the quality of their video and audio was excellent - I received both a DVD and Blu-Ray copy.  I had Mike do the videos in their newer cinematography style, and the way they film is just incredible.  My wedding videos feel like I am watching a movie, not some cheesy home video film, but a stylish, romantic movie version of my day.  And after seeing everything they managed to film - the scenery, the guests, while capturing the main events, I am astounded by how they managed to do this while never feeling like they are in the way.  Most of my guests did not even realize I had a videographer!  Let's face it, your wedding day is one of those days when you probably will feel the most beautiful you ever have... and Mike and his team are the best people to capture it.  The day goes by so fast and you will be so happy and high on life that you might not remember every moment.  I am so glad I had Mike and the team there to catch everything.  Thank you guys so much for these memories that I will have and want to keep watching over and over for a lifetime.

Pros: Made us relive every moment, smooth transitions, used all of the songs we requested, quality of the video was top-notch, captured every special moment… the list goes on… amazing!!
We were worried because it was a month before the wedding and we needed a videographer. I emailed every videographer in Cancun and, out of the videographers available for our date, we narrowed down our decision to the ones that had the best samples (on vimeo and youtube).   Apparently the research worked because we were BLOWN AWAY by how AMAZING our video turned out!!! Our videographer was so personable and the communication was consistent and seamless. We paid the deposit immediately to secure the date, paid the remainder the day of the wedding and we got our video in July 11th and our wedding was May 31st!!   Not only was our videographer quick and efficient, we LOVED him!! He was EVERYWHERE!!! He captured all of the funny, loving and even the not-so-funny moments!!   We had a viewing party at our house the weekend we got the video and for the not-so-funny moments everybody was CRACKING UP!!! The main not-so-funny moment was that My wedding planner, Suha Pressey from Weddings Romantique, forgot our rings during the ceremony!! Our videographer didn't leave that out and I was so GLAD that he kept everything REAL!!! Looking back at all of the worries I had that day and all of the things that went wrong because of our planner, I felt more at peace seeing how minuscule those issues were in perspective of the big picture.   We may not have hired the right planner but we hit a home run with Miguel Cantarell!!!!!
We saw and heard such amazing things about our last two family weddings covered by Mike and his team that we flew them to cover our own wedding in Jamaica,- to do our own wedding video!! We are BEYOND elated with the outcome of our wedding video!! Mike & Eduardo did a phenomenal job putting all the footage together from our FOUR DAY wedding celebration. Our highlight film of 10 minutes had all our friends and family including myself repeatedly crying as the team captured the most important moments of the weekend during the ceremonies. It truly captures the love and happiness that encompassed our wedding weekend. We made the right choice. Now my husband and I have this amazing viewing of some of the best memories of our lives. Mike, & his team were very professional and so much fun to have around during the festivities! What a comfortable addition to the "busy-ness" and excitement of a wedding! -four events at that! -And what a wonderful take away from our wedding! 
Pros: on time, listens, professional, very talented and creative!!
Cons: Nothing!
My husband and I were hesitant to use vendors we couldn't meet in person, therefore, we flew in our own photographer and DJ to our destination wedding in Puerto Morelos, Mexico.  After realizing it would be completely out of our budget to fly down a videographer as well, we chose a videography service in the Cancun area through Mike's website and reviews.  We really like his Cinematography style and I really enjoyed watching weddings he's done in the past. Communicating with Mike was easy and professional. He put my mind at ease before I even met him.  The day of the wedding I said hello to him and that was pretty much it.  He was quiet and I didn't even realize he was around, which is exactly what you want from a videographer. I am very picky when it comes to photos and video's so my standards were pretty high as I was definitely nervous about not having my "dream vide".  That being said, Mike did an EXCELLENT job and sent me the link to our highlight video in a very timely matter. 10 seconds into it I was a crying mess.  He truly did an amazing job and captured every important moment and truly made my wedding day into a romantic movie.  he even made the torrential downpour look cook and fun and romantic (when I truly wasn't that happy about it). We are so happy with his work and would recommend him to anyone having a destination wedding in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area.  Spend the $$ because once it's all said and done, it will be your most favorite thing you spent money on. My advice, whatever you do, do not go with a "hotel suggested vendor", you will be disappointed!!
