Huatulco, MX - Wedding Photographer (Photographer Huatulco)

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I am writing this review, to help prospective brides choose their photographer for their wedding in Huatulco, Mexico.

When I started planning our wedding (which took place on April 28, 2012), I couldn't find much current/relevant information on this site (or others) with reviews or recommendations for photographers in the area. My husband and I researched the best we could from a far (Canada), and ended up putting our trust into our wedding coordinator (Pilar Cabrera - Dreams Huatulco, who is also awesome!), and went with her recommendation to use Miguel Angel Luna Gainza 


WOW. We are so happy and thankful that we were able to use Miguel & his team for our wedding - our photos are absolutely amazing, and he was such a pleasure to work with. Miguel is very knowledgable, talented, and friendly - we would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is getting married or visiting Huatulco. We could have not asked for anything more in a photographer, we have absolutely no regrets and would use him again in a heartbeat.


If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask :)

Hi, my sister is looking for a photographer in Huatulco, do you remember the approx budget she would need to hire him.?

You may also consider taking your own destination wedding photographer that is familiar with Mexico. You may find the cost of bringing your own to be more reasonable while receiving better service than local photographers. In our situation our resort photographer was asking around $3000 for 6hrs with 24 photos, and local photographers were quoting similar prices. We would have paid more for the full day we wanted. We decided to with Decordova Photography ( www.decordova.ca ) for our wedding in the Riviera Maya whose packages were almost half of what the resort was asking. Shopping around took little more effort but were so content with the results and savings. Don’t be afraid to enquire with photographers that don’t directly reside in Huatulco, Mexico.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
