Hey guys! So something I've done at my last two Royal Playa del Carmen weddings has been to take couples on a mini-trash the dress after the ceremony. By mini-trash the dress I mean take the couples off-site : )
I think this is a great idea for a couple reasons and I imagine there might be some local to Playa photographers that do this as well.
Here's why I think this is an awesome idea. Yes, the RPDC is a great place to have a wedding, but there are a couple of drawbacks about the site from a photographers standpoint.
1) The RPDC is crowded. Unless you're getting married in the gazebo odds are gawking tourists and hotel goers will get as close as they possibly can to your ceremony with their cameras and cell phones out. The beach is also crowded and narrow, lots of half-dressed people and again, gawkers, not a lot of room to work and a lot of distractions.
2) The sun sets behind the RPDC.
