I was researching for the longest time for TTD locations in Maya Riviera. I really wanted to go to the Tulum Ruins, but couldn't get enough details on how to get a proper permit. I was finding contradicting info on the net, from buying $10 permits per camera vs getting an official permit from the Mexican government because we were dealing with historical property. Instead of dealing with this headache, we ended up going with my wedding coordinator Erika's suggestion which was the salt water pool within the Grand Palladium Resort which we were staying in. It made everything so much easier, the location was absolutely beautiful!!! Our photographer and cinematographer/videographer were Wanda and Brian of Studio 67, who came down with us to Mexico from Toronto. They did an amazing job on our trash the dress shoot!
We did the TTD shoot 2 days after the wedding. We managed to to wake up 5:30 in the morning to capture the sunrise. The early wake up call was absolutely worth it!!! Check out our TTD photos and mini video on studio 67's blog. We loved it!!
So if you are staying at the grand palladium ( riviera, white sands, colonial, or kantenah ) consider doing your trash the dress at the salt water pool!!
