I have only AMAZING things to say about Cecilia Dumas. My mom and I found her online while planning my Playa del Carmen wedding. We got quotes from my top choices and she was by far the most affordable! She was quick to answer any questions we had throughout the planning process. Cecilia has a great personality and is very upbeat. Her and her assistant Paola worked very well together. We booked Cecilia for 6 hours so she showed up while my bridesmaids and I were getting ready. She took several pictures of decorative details, of me alone, and of me and my girls all before the wedding to save time. During the wedding she got amazing pictures from all angles but was never distracting. The emotions she captured takes me back to our wedding day every time I look at them. After the wedding she took group pictures quickly so everyone could enjoy the cocktail hour. The bridal party stayed at the beach to get all of the fun pictures we had planned. She even had a print out of several picture ideas I had sent her so she could make sure she took them all. There were several people on the beach that didn’t seem to notice they were wandering around in our pictures, but Cecilia was very assertive (but kind) and able to clear the way so our pictures were taken quickly. Josh and I stayed on the beach with her to get couples photos before the reception. We got so many pictures in a short time because she was quick to tell us where to go and what looked good. At the reception, Cecilia got pictures of EVERYTHING that was important. She was with us for 3 hours at the reception. The pictures really show how beautiful and fun it was!
We also had Cecilia do a trash the dress session. We met up with her 2 days after our wedding and had a blast in our one hour session. She kept us moving and took pictures constantly. I was nervous about the session but we ended up having a blast! She is a genius with her camera and our pictures turned out SO gorgeous!
Cecilia took close to 2000 photos between the 2 sessions! She was very quick to edit and send the photos too. She mailed me our pictures the week after our wedding! She sent me an email saying she decided to edit extra pictures (for no extra charge) because she got so many good ones. She mailed us hard copies of all the edited photos, a beautiful photo book, and cds with all the pictures from the wedding including digital copies of the touched up photos.
Cecilia made the whole photography process exciting and simple. She was fun and made everyone feel comfortable. We are so glad we found her and are so thankful that she got so many candid photos that remind us of how amazing our wedding day was! She is the best!
She posted a bunch of our wedding pictures on her website. Take a look :)
