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!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
