    Hi ladies!

    Getting married at Dreams Tulum, really soon! I am looking for some ideas for places to shoot our Trash the Dress session close by. I know we are not permitted to shoot at the ruins, and we already know about possible shooting at Xel-Ha, but I was wondering if you super-knowledgeable women have any other ideas.

    And help would be greatly appreciated!

      First off congrats on your upcoming wedding! You must be so excited

      A lot of brides utilize the beautiful cenotes in the area for TTD pics and of course there are so many beaches in the area that would be exquisite backdrops. I know between Tulum and Playa del Carmen there are tons of fantastic beaches along that stretch. I would definitely do a search in the Cancun/Riviera Maya section for good locations as any applicable rules, entrance fees, etc. to the cenotes or beaches have been discussed thoroughly in the past.

      Hope this helps, and wherever you decide ~ make sure you share your pics with us!!!

          Hi Tia,
          You are able to shoot at the ruins, you just need special permission. You can e-mail
          or fax
          01 983 83 72411
          I suggest using the fax number.
          Also, you can use the cenotes as mentioned above. We used Hidden Worlds, but Labna Ha is also beautiful. The beaches are beautiful and secluded towards the end of the hotel zone in Tulum. You can park at Mil Amores and walk into the preserve if you would like.

            We did our TTD session at the public beach just down the road from the ruins. It was AMAZING!!
            basically, we got to the ruins. Then instead of paying and going inside, we headed south down the road. you'll walk a little way and then there will be a few taxis (if you're lucky) they'll drive you just down the road for a small fee $3-5. We probably would have walked, but I was in my wedding dress and getting really hot!!
            That beach has beautiful boats, the super soft white sand, BLUE water, and a fun little restaurant right on the beach. It's awesome!!

                o sweet, its hard to find a TTD photographer that does exactly what we want for the trashing...like something romantic and sexy. we dont want to have funny shots of us jumping in the ocean or pools, lol

                  Hi everyone!!


                  I need help figuring out a great spot for TTD pics. I'm bringing another dress with me to get "dirty" in. My own photograher is in Houston as well and we're trying to find places. I love how the ruins at Tulum look over the sea but is it even possible to take TTD pics there?


                  I've seen tons of TTD pics by Del Sol & Elizabeth Medina - any brides who have used them - locations would be great!! I love the cenote area they keep using and those small ruins.
