To all brides looking for a wedding photographer in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya, please consider Octavio Montes! After doing a ton of research on these forums and looking through photography vendors' websites I found that he has the most reasonable prices for such beautiful and quality work. He even offers a 10% off discount to brides, which is great because I feel like a lot of photographers take advantage of destination wedding couples with their ridiculous prices. He was very responsive and professional and accepts PayPal. These forums have been a huge help during my wedding planning and I just wanted to share this info as my big day is in August and I can't wait for Octavio to capture every moment! You can find his work on http://www.OctavioMontes.com :)

Hello Brides,

 

I just had my wedding at the GCR May 8,2014. I hired Octavio Montes as my photographer. I don't have the photos back yet (it's only been a week), but I would like to attest to his professionalism. He came earlier than expected to set up and discuss what we considered the most important to capture. He was very receptive to suggestions. I would say his style is a cooperation between the couple and his team. You can tell he was really into it and suggested poses to try, even lying down on the floor sometimes to capture great shots! He was a pleasure to work with,. and I can't wait to get our photos back! :D Look forward to my later posts. I'll have attachments for sure ;)

This is by far my favorite shot by Octavio Montes.  I love how he was able to capture a passionate kiss between the two of us. We are a bubbly couple so this type of image is rare for us. Octavio also suggested the pose :D

The photo quality has been compromised because I took this off a webpage and copy+paste it here. The original file is much much clearer.

See pictures I posted.... under album named Gran Caribe Real Resorts Cancun MX in image gallery. Flowers are from Maya Floral. Cake was  made by Gran Caribe Real Resort (I brought my own wedding topper). There's also a picture of the menu. All the food was good, especially the sea food soup. That was so yummy. If I could change things, I would of added some vegetables to the main course. 

Hello! I am in the process of finalizing my paper work and I wanted to know what you chose as your main courses? I am stuck on food and I cant decide what to get and since your food choice was yummy though id ask. Thank you! =)
