We hired Derek and Lorena to photograph our January 2017 wedding at the Now Sapphire resort. Honestly, they were one of the best parts of the wedding.
They worked with us in the weeks leading up to the wedding - making us feel comfortable with them, giving us tips for the wedding, giving us ideas and inspiration and just generally getting us excited about the experience we were about to have. They were so open and caring - offering to bring us anything we may have forgotten.
They arrived and immediately got to work - these two are super professional and take BEAUTIFUL images - with lights (when needed), fun set ups and great ideas. My fiance (now husband) and I had planned on exchanging letters and then doing a first look - but Derek suggested we stand back to back and read our notes to each other. It was possibly the most moving moment in the entire weekend. I'm so happy we did it.
Lorena was amazing - she carried my lipstick and some blotting sheets and always made sure I looked put together. I was tearing up (in a good way!) at one point and joked that I had to stop or my false eyelashes would fall off and Lorena leans over and says "oh, don't worry I have eyelash glue." She honestly thought of everything I didn't!
The guys also seemed to have a good time with Derek - he took some really fun shots of them while they were getting ready too.
At the ceremony they blended in and I never noticed them at all, but they got some beautiful shots of us and our guests.
Afterward, they took shots while we were waiting for the light to be right, ensuring we got a shot with every single person at the wedding. The group shot they took of us is so perfect and captured the feeling of the weekend super well.
The stayed longer than we thought they would and even took part in the celebrations a bit. Honestly, they were so much fun to be around all day.
We walked away that evening with the majority of our photos on flash drives and they asked us to pick 5 that we wanted edited right away. They turned those around crazy fast and have answered questions and emails quickly since then. We LOVE LOVE LOVE every photo they took and I couldn't have been happier with them. I usually hate photos of myself but I loved these. They captured the beauty in the scene and in every guest.
I couldn't recommend Photos in Cancun any more highly!
