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

Recommended Posts

My favorite is Playa Weddings -- it is a husband and wife team. They are from the US but have lived in Mexico for eons. She does photography. He does the videography. It is not necessary to have both the photography and videography if you go with them. It was just great that they offered both. What I really love about them is they have a very authentic style i.e. the pictures come off looking very genuine not staged and stiff. The video is the same. I know they started doing Super 8 video (think nostalgic videos that you would see of your parents). I think they are doing them at cost right now to try and get more people interested in it.

I did some research and got some pricing and we used Gonzalo Nunez his price was more than reasonable for what he was offering ~10 hours for wedding day and then 5 hours I think the next day for TTD.  We did some emailing back and forth and he was always very quick to respond. 

 

He was so friendly and so funny.  He came to the resort promptly when he said he would and got started right away.  Wedding day came and went and then there was TTD.  He took us to three different locations and even took us for tacos at a roadside taco stand and they were the best tacos ever.

 

 He just sent a preview of the photos he took and I am so very impressed.  So far they are amazing.  I would highly recommend Gonzalo. 

 

Here is his blog.

Has anyone used Ismael Pacheco before?  He's really reasonably priced but I haven't heard of anyone that has used him.

Has anyone used Matias Cano Photography? I am getting married at Azul Sensatori and he is listed an available photographer. The hotel has an outside vendor fee that I am trying very hard to aviod.

My husband and I used Juan Navarro for our wedding and TTD photos and I agree with everyone else......he is amazing! Well worth it, you will NOT be disappointed and he is so much fun to work with! I booked him and about a week or two before we were leaving he emailed to get details about times, what we wanted, etc. We both highly recommend him and his team. Oh, and he showed up at our resort with 3 other people, so they get pictures of you and your guests from literally every angle! Here is a link to our wedding pictures that he posted yesterday....

I used Ismael for my wedding on 8/23 at the moon palace resort!  He was FABULOUS! I could not tell you how happy I was with the photos!  He is very flexible and will do any types of photos that you want.  He is a great artist!

I strongly recommend him!!

Thanks you so much.  I haven't heard of anyone using him, so I was getting really nervous about sending him money.  That is one thing that makes me nervous about destination weddings and using vendors off of the resort.  I'm thrilled to hear that you had a good experience!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
