I am looking for one cenote in particular...and really hoping that one of the locals will come through and divulge the secret.  I am getting married at Azul beach in april.  the hotel has terrible outside vendor fees so I wasn't able to afford some of the best Mexico photographers! their prices coupled with the $800 outside vendor fee put them totally out of reach.  I will be flying in my own photographer from home & hoping to do a TTD in a cenote. She is a good friend and while taking my wedding/TTD pics, hoping to build her portfolio!  We have looked through many TTD session pics and are totally in love with the ones featuring this "cavelike" opening.  Can anyone identify the area? Any help would be much appreciated!

Were you able to find the name of this location? We also wanted to do a cenote shoot after our wedding  but unfortunately ended up canceling to tour with family instead. Really do your research and re-verify if you are told of a location. Moments that mattered told us one of their cave photos was shot at Cenote Azul. When we requested this location with our photographer he mentioned that Cenote Azul does not have a cave or a semi-cave. That it was an open cenote frequented by locals and tourists.  L It wasn’t nice to be misled by MTM.


Our perfect wedding in the Riviera Maya.

    @talicea7812 in the Peninsula de Yucatan there is around 10,000 cenotes, in the riviera Maya around 2,000, probably just known but tourist and accesible around 100, each year i search for options, I spend a day in each one of them and as many as I can in a week, just few works for natural light and some other for artificial or both.

     

    You can find some amazing ones but takes up to 4 hours to get them between highways, roads and paths, the same time the way back. Some others just 30 minutes depending on clients staying location.

     

    And probably in many you can find the best of all cenote worlds because It also depends on the clients swim and dive skills

     

    Here some samples of Cenotes and the results in certain hour time of the day

    @talicea7812 this is why you must have to work with a local one, hard to find great places, some of them have price to shoot,, need to call in advance and make sure It will not have tourist around, some of them, depending on the day will make your session a nightmare, some charge for the session and are really expensive, what you save probably will pay there and most important there is an agreement and foreign photographers without paperwork will not be able to access and do a session, take into consideration, cheers!
