    Hello ladies!

    I am getting married at Secrets Maroma Beach in 2 months (November 23, 2012) and wanted to know if anyone had anything to say about the two photographers that resort works with - Juan Navarro and Adventure Photos.  I've looked at photos from both photographers and, truthfully, I thought the photography was laughable.  I was embarrassed for them that they had put some of the photos on their websites and/or facebook accounts!  Some of the photos were SO BAD.  Now I'm super nervous that I'm going to get some idiot taking photos for the most important day of our lives!  It's only 2 months before the wedding, so I guess it's a bit late now to find an outside photographer, plus it would probably be absurdly expensive to do.  Has anyone worked with either of these photography groups and have specific names of photographers to request from each group?  Or maybe some examples of your own wedding at SMB by either of these photographers?  HELP IS APPRECIATED!! :)



    Marie, a very stressed bride...

      Congrats mariegerecke + welcome to the forum community!  yes, your instincts are accurate......we strongly recommend you look for an outside photographer to capture those irretrievable wedding "moments that matter"! 
      The house photographers at most resorts come and go, and don't have the training that professionals have. Some have even been known to lose entire wedding shoots! and there's no way to make that up. It's not good to take a chance on something that important!


      We're already booked for your wedding date, but can recommend another excellent photographer if you wish. 

      Here's a link to an album we took at a Secrets Maroma Beach wedding recently........

        Maroma beach? One of the most beautiful beach for beach weddings!


        See some weddings I shot there to give an idea of the location:

          We used Juan Navarro and were very happy with our photographs and experience we had with his company. I would certainly not say he is an idiot(or Adventure photos for that matter). One of my friends used Adventure photos for a session the day after her wedding when the weather was nicer and loved her photos from them. Adventure Photos is actually on site at the resort; Juan Navarro is not and does weddings all over Riviera Maya.


          Trying going to the Secrets Maroma thread, there are photos posted there from Adventure photos, Juan photos, and other photographers post there as well.
