Pros: So fun to work with, amazing pictures, great experience
Cons: Nothing!
I don't even know where to be begin! Jill and Agustin shot our wedding in Cozumel, and went above and beyond any expectations I had. Not only where they a blast to work with, the photos they took are phenomenal! I was nervous hiring someone I didn't know since we did a destination wedding, and I am extremely picky! However, choosing Cancun Studios was the 2nd best decision we made (after getting married)! They have a great vibe that put everyone at easy. And, again, the pictures were breathtaking! They perfectly captured the best day of my life, and I will cherish these precious moments/pictures forever! I couldn't be happier with the work Jill and Agustin did for us! We have received so many compliments on our photos. I HIGHLY recommend Cancun Studios to make your special day even better!

Pros: Passionate, talented, friendly, flexible, incredible results
Cons: Truly none
My fiancée and I planned a private Cozumel wedding (just the two of us) at the end of December 2015, and had our resort arrange nearly everything for us.  However, we wanted to hire an outside photographer to shoot our preparation and seaside beach ceremony at sunset. There were others available for the day, but we decided on Agustin and Jill for many reasons: they were personable, reasonably priced, responded very quickly to messages, we were impressed with their reviews, and with the photos on their website, and there turned out to be an uncanny personal connection—their children happen to study at the college where I am a professor!  Such a small world.   On the day itself, we met them both independently in our separate rooms (their idea, so as to get “first look” photos on the beach), and the rest of the shoot was pure joy.  They are such genuine people, and open, kind, and passionate photographers, with a wonderful combination of charisma and artistry, that we easily relaxed into a fun-filled experience.  Of course the results are what really count in a session like this, and their work turned out to be well beyond our expectations and dreams.  They were able to capture the warmth, the bliss, the beautiful colors, some silliness, the tenderness, the idyllic setting, and the love, in ways we only imagined.   Words alone cannot express the depth of our gratitude and respect, Agustin and Jill.  As they say in my business, bravissimo!

My Fiance Don and I are getting married in Cancun in May 2014 and we were travelling to Mexico for a holiday this past Christmas/New Years. We were staying on the island of Isla Mujeres and we decided to get some Engagement photos done since we never got around to it at home in canada. Isla Mujeres holds a special place in our hearts so we wanted some "around the town"/urban photos done as well as some sunset/beach photos.

Booking Cancun Studios was very easy and Jill and Agustin were quick to respond to my email inquiries and were very enthusiatic about the photoshoot ideas we had. I paid the $100 deposit via paypal and our date was booked! Prior to the photoshoot day they were great with communicating where to meet them at the ferry dock and gave me all their contact info. We picked up them up in a golfcart and had a 1.5 hour photoshoot around the island. Don and I had never done professional photos before so I was pretty nervous but Agustin and Jill were so great with pointing out locations and getting us to relax and have fun.

The days leading up to the photoshoot were very rainy but we lucked out on the day of the shoot with the most beautiful afternoon and sunset! Agustin and Jill were really enthusiatic and looked like they were having such a great time capturing the shots. Isla Mujeres is such a beautiful and unique place so our location opportunities were endless! We recieved our photos within a few weeks via a Zipfile download link on a website. This was such a great way to recieve the files. Quick and easy!

There were tons of photos and all of them looked stunning. High quality and the colors were viberant. We couldnt be happier with our choice of photographer! Cancun Studios is a fantastic choice for anyone looking for great photos at a great price. Highly reccomended!
Pros: professional, fun, energetic, positive, price, quality, creativity, passion
Cons: none
When searching for a photographer for our destination wedding in October at Occidental Grand Xcaret we looked through many, many portfolios and websites to find the one that matched our idea of what types of photos we were looking for (fun, romantic, exotic, passionate and unique) and was also within our budget. We loved Agustin and Jill from the first email and knew we were in great hands. They expressed great excitement about shooting our wedding day and our trash the dress beach session! Agustin and Jill had us climbing rocks and ancient ruins in 40+ degree (celcius) heat in a tux and heavy wedding dress without even thinking about it. They were exceptionally fun and had us laughing and smiling until our cheeks hurt. They captured each moment with skill that only that of two people who are very passionate about what they do. We would be walking along and Agustin would say; "The light and this spot, I see something AMAZING... lean against here and turn your head...". "Got it, I got it!!" He would cheer in great excitement. Oh, it was so much fun! The day of our trash the dress (beach) it poured rain the entire day which was both a challenge for my groom and I and a new experience shooting in full non-stop rain for Agustin. But, he loved every moment of the experience and so did we. After a while we forgot it was raining as we rolled around laughing in the waves of this magical beach.  Agustin and Jill are a perfect team displaying professionalism, passion, fun and excitement. Have no doubts that you are in anything but great hands with two people that are about to perfectly capture this very special time in your lives when you choose Cancun Studios. We feel as though we have made true friends during this amazing experience and I look back on it fondly. Thank you does not say enough.

Pros: responding to emails in timely matter, VERY friendly & fun, fantastic work
Cons: NONE
Typically I don't write reviews but in this case I find it extremely necessary to recognize talent. I was skeptical when booking a photographer in a different country (3 months in advance) but after much research, I couldn't pass this team up. Everything I read was great; what a great team; wonderful people; extremely pleased with our images etc. and that is exactly what my husband and I thought ourselves after meeting Jill and Agustin. First and foremost all my emails were handled in a timely matter (I say within ten minutes), all my questions were answered and they were right on time the day of our photo shoot. I felt as important as a bride that day, my husband and I were doing a five year anniversary shoot (trash the dress) but the time and effort Agustin and Jill took with us was out of this world and all our images were viewable within 48 hours. When we met with them at 6am, it was drizzling and the first thing Agustin said was,"we might not get that sunrise", so throw in honestly too.  I didn't get my sunrise photos and of course this has everything to do with mother natural but what I got was even better…the lighting, the clouds and colors were AMAZING!  You can tell Agustin and Jill are passionate about what they do and that’s what you want when booking a photographer. Even after our session, our emails were STILL dealt with in a timely matter (again, maybe ten minutes give or take). This team is FANTASTIC!!! They made it SO FUN for my husband and I….we brought in our anniversary at 6am with Jill and Agustin and as we were both walking away we said pretty much the same thing to each other "What a great way to start our five year anniversary". Our pictures are outstanding. I can't stop viewing them…I'm in love with all the images. So many of them are going to make great wall art in our home. Thank you again Cancun Studios…we will FOR SURE be back with our children to do another photo session in the future. Whoever reads this review…rest assure you are IN GREAT HANDS! Saludos! 
Pros: Great angles and lighting! The photos are beautifully edited and giving to you within a couple of days. I love the candid shots!
Cons: NONE!!
I cannot say thank you enough to Agustin and Jill from Cancun Studios!!! Our Engagement Pictures turned out so beautiful and we had a blast getting them done in Mexico! I love all the pictures from the anlles to the lighting, but most of all I love how they captured us as who we are, playful and in love. Truly, Thank you!!! - Staci & Scott.

Everyone is raving about the pictures! Augustin is so great to work with. My Fiance hated taking pictures and he made it so easy for him. Even the bridal party loved him. His photos are everything and more than I wanted. Just Beautiful. His angles, the coloring, the creativity is endless with him. He is simply Fantastic! Wish I could use him for every event I ever have! I was in Cancun 9 days he had my cd delivered with all my photos before I even left. I didn't even have to wait at all. My Husband and I are so grateful for the great memories we will now have forever. Great Beautiful remarkable service!
Thank you Cancun Studios!

Pros: Great Communication, Stunning Photos, Flexible, Quick Delivery of Photos, Great Value
Cons: None!
I am extremely happy that I choose to do our engagement pictures in Mexico. I found Cancun Studios through Wedding Wire and read their reviews. The reviews were all excellent comments and reviews. Therefore, I sent an email to Jill and immediately she was helpful with providing me information about her packages, prices, time and date of the photo shoot. I also advised her that I would be on a time crisis since I would be visiting Mexico via a cruise ship that would dock in Cozumel. She said it would be notified me it would not be a problem. We kept in touch and confirmed the photo shoot right before I left on the cruise. Just as we had communicated via email her husband Agustin was waiting for us at the Pier of the Ferry at Playa Del Carmen at the time we had said. Agustin was such an amazing charismatic and amazing person. He immediately made my Fiancé and I feel comfortable. It was such an amazing experience to work with him and take our engagement pictures with him. He made us feel at ease and natural in front of the camera; he had a great sense of humor and truly captured such great shots. He even recommended us to an excellent Mexican Restaurant after our photo shoot so we could go eat as he edited our photos. Right before we had to leave to catch the next ferry, while he was still editing the photos he gave us a sneak peak. We were truly at an awe as we looked through the photos.  Since we had to leave he sent me the photo files via e-mail along with a link for our family and friends. We are truly so appreciative and thankful we were able to experience taking our photos with Cancun Studios. Not only did the photos come out AMAZING but it will be a moment we will cherish forever.

Pros: Everything about Cancun Studios is a Pro
Cons: None
Where do I begin! We had our destination wedding at the Occidental Grand Xcaret almost one year ago, April 13, 2011. We decided to hire Cancun Studios to do the photography for many reasons, one being that they were conveniently located at the hotel which meant we could speak to them when we needed to, and after seeing their portfolio it was a no brainer to go with them, and we are so thrilled we did.  From the beginning the communication between us and them was great, Jill would get back to my e-mail inquiries right away, she was such a pleasure to deal with.  Then when we got to destination we dealt with Agustin, all I can say is what a great down to earth amazing personality he has, and his entire family as well. Everything was so easy going from the beginning all the way till the end.    The day of our wedding Agustin did a fantastic job taking pictures of our family and friends, he was so friendly and made us all laugh (even my mom whom has a hard time cracking a smile).  He was so professional but yet so laid back, he has a great gift because he knows how to capture the special moments in every single picture he takes.  He gave us many suggestions for our wedding day in terms of what he thought would work best for our pictures and we were also able to voice our opinions as well, at the end he is the professional so we left it up to him.  The entire day we did not worry about the pictures at all because we felt that he was doing a great job.   When we finally got home we received a web-link to see our pictures and when we saw them we were blown away, they looked fantastic, he captured the feeling of that day so perfect, we could not have asked for better photos.  We ended up purchasing a hard cover album as well, it took a bit long to get it but when we finally did it was so worth it, it's an amazing album worth the money and the wait.  We constantly get so many compliments on the album and on all of our wedding pictures from our family and friends, and all I can keep telling them is that it was the photographer who made those pictures look amazing.  Thank you Cancun Studios for taking amazing pictures at our wedding, they will be cherished for a lifetime.
Pros: Fun & Experienced, Value
Cancun Studios took my family pictures on the beach and we LOVE them!!!  Highly Recommend!!!  The entire process, start to finish, was really fun and the pictures are amazing.  Jill and Augustin are very experienced with posing and process, how to get a sick and feisty 2 year old to look at the camera and smile, meanwhile keeping my husband and I engaged, they are brilliant.  The posing is so relaxed and natural, perfection!   I HIGHLY recommend this photographer, they are the BEST we have ever worked with, and we have professional family pictures taken every year!   My favorite part of having family pictures taken by Cancun Studios is Augustin gave us ALL of the image files.  Back home photographers always decide which images are the best, and these are the only images they give us.  Some of our favorite images were the not-perfect, because of a crying toddler or us squinting our eyes because of the bright sun, and I LOVE that we have all of the images.  This is above and beyond all other photographers and we will most definitely have Cancun Studios take family pictures again on our next Cancun trip.   If Jill and Augustin are reading this, THANK YOU for everything!!!

Pros: Professional, Fun, Creative, Genuine
We had our destination wedding at the Occidental Grand Xcaret in October 2011. I signed a contract for Cancun Studios to do the photography for the wedding and was delighted by the wonderful experience I had, start to finish, with Jill and Augustin! Even before arriving in Mexico and meeting in person, all of my email communications with Jill were professional, organized and she always thoroughly answered all my questions. Everything that we did before the wedding felt like we were collaborating together to make things perfect. Once we arrived in Mexico, we met with Augustin and our wedding coordinator in the shop Cancun Studios has right in the resort. This allowed us to meet and discuss all the final details of the day.  We suggested some locations in the resort where we wanted photos and Augustin also knew all the really beautiful spots since he works in the resort regularly. On the wedding day, we chose to take pictures before the ceremony and I can honestly say that it was one of the highlights of the day because it was so easy and fun. His process was the perfect combination of professional and fun. He was thrilled with the chance to photograph a bigger bridal party than usual and made us all feel like stars. With the backdrop of such a beautiful location, its hard to imagine photos not coming out well, but I know that Augustin's special touches will make our photos phenomenal. One of the other benefits of having a shop in the resort was we got to see a preview of some of the photos (untouched or edited) before leaving to return home and they were exceptionally beautiful. I cannot wait to see all the final photos and re-live the best day over and over again.     Jill & Augustin, if you are reading this, THANK YOU!

I am a photographer...My husband and I were going down to Cancun for our 16th Wedding Anniversary.  We eloped so never had wedding photos.  I wanted to have a photo session but obviously couldn't do our own.  I contacted Jill & Agustin and we set up to do them at the resort we were staying at.  They came and we had a blast!  They made it so much fun and we have WONDERFUL photos!  They had them back to us the next night before we were heading back home.  I would use them again in a heart beat!  You can't go wrong with Cancun Studios!  And being a photographer, I'm picky, but they are truly AWESOME!  Thank you so much Agustin & Jill!!
Pros: on-time, patient, fantastic work, reasonably priced
Cons: N/A
I used Cancun Studios for my wedding photography in February 2011. Our wedding was at the Occidental Xcaret in the Riviera Maya. Our photographer and his wife were GREAT!!! They captured all the moments that I wanted to remember and they did a fantastic job!!! Their customer service was impeccable and they put me at ease after the first time I spoke with them. My pictures were better than I could have ever hoped for...they were professional and courteous and really made everything very special. I was concerned that they might be difficult to reach, but they always responded to my calls/emails within 24 hours. He also came up with some really unique ideas to get some great shots and I was blown away at how incredible the pictures were!! I couldn't have asked for better. I highly highly recommend Cancun Studios photography THANK YOU SO MUCH CANCUN STUDIOS YOU'RE AMAZING!!!!

We were married at Beach Palace Resort in Cancun Mexico.  We went through Cancun Studios for our trash the dress photos.  We had a wonderful experience and are so glad we did it.  The photographers are a husband and wife team, Jill and Agustin, who were very kind!  They came and personally picked us up from our resort and drove us to the cenote where we took our photos.  The photos turned out to be amazing!
