Who is the Best Photographer in the Cancun/Riviera Maya Area? PLEASE HELP!

Recommended Posts

 Hi,

 

I am having a very difficult time deciding on a photographer for my upcoming wedding in May and need to make a decision very soon before they all get booked.  Have any of you had amazing photographers at your wedding?  If yes, can you private message me links to the photos they took at your wedding?

 

We are looking into Rachel or Jonathan at La Luna, Lori at Sweet Life Photography (used to be called Moments that Matter), Sasha Gluck. We were also looking into Del Sol but all but one of their photographers is already booked.  Have any of your worked with Juan Jose at Del Sol?

 

Has anyone had good experiences with bringing a photographer from the US to Mexico?

 

Do you have any recommendations?  Photography is the MOST important item of our wedding and we really want to have wonderful photos so any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!! J

I've worked with all the del Sol photographer & Rachel from La Luna...all fabulous!!! :)  I recommend hiring locally because they will know the area better, and possibly be more experienced with beach weddings.  Also, my experience working with out of town photographers has been okay, but I've never had anyone bring an assistant, which, I think is essential for capturing all the special moments. 

 

Hope your search goes well! :)

Hi Leanne,

 

Del Sol is banned from our resort and we just found out after deciding on booking Rachel from La Luna that she is banned too! :( We are so bummed and now have no idea who to book because all of our backups have already been booked.  Do you have any other recommendations?

 

Thanks!!!

I have not had a shoot with him yet, but I booked Adrian Herrera of Victor Herrera Photography for my July wedding.  His work looks amazing, and they have been wonderful to communicate with so far!

 I booked Seascha Gluck for my wedding.

 

This site is a great resource, look at the reviews. Look at their work, find what you like, and look at your budget.

I just returned from my wedding in Tulum that was on February 26th.  My photographer was Fer Juaristi and he was amazing.  Photojournalistic pictures (I think I will receive most of the pictures this week and can send them).  But he was the honestly the best decision I made regarding our wedding considering we will have our pictures for a lifetime.  I posted a separate review on him on this vednor section this week, so definitely check that out as well.  You will be so happy if you hire him!

Why has your resort banned some photograhers? 

 

We used Citlalli of ClaudiaPhoto and loved her and her team! Our pictures were very artistic and natural, which we loved! I'm not one for all the posed, typical wedding shots! Here is the link to my photos on her blog...http://citlallirico.com/blog/?p=2761  and my review on this site complete with photos http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/claudiaphoto-wedding-photography/reviews/4212  Good Luck in your search!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
