    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!” (read more)

    Stunning Sunset Wedding Photos

    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.  T...” (read more)

    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!

    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 bot...” (read more)

    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!...” (read more)

    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 shoo...” (read more)

    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 sugges...” (read more)

    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...” (read more)

    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 thrill...” (read more)

    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!!” (read more)

    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!!!!   ” (read more)
