Amazing Photographer, Tulum, Mexico Area - La Buena Vida Photography

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I've been seeing a lot of threads regarding the need for a great photographer for destination weddings and I just had to rave about our photographer.


I found La Buena Vida Photography by fluke looking at reviews for the Tulum area of Mexico.  They were recommended by one of the reviewers so I checked out their website and loved the pictures they have up.  They are a husband and wife team, Barbara and Manuel Luna.  I sent them an email message and from there my destination wedding experience has skyrocketed from sorta tolerably enthused to amazing excitement and want the day to be here tomorrow!!


I wasn't sure what to expect from a photographer, having been the first time we've hired one and Barbara has been all kinds of helpful.  And I don't just mean photography wise.  She walked through the entire process with me and has provided ALL additional advice and help as she knows the area really really well.


I went from planning a boring resort wedding to planning an event to remember off-resort.  I told her what I was looking for and she gave some suggestions of how it can be done.  She really takes the time to get to know the couple and understand your tastes and personalities.  Check out the work on their website, you won't be disappointed:

She has actually become my impromptu wedding planner, and I couldn't be more happy.  


ANYONE looking for a photographer in Mexico should first contact the Luna's as they will ensure your wedding day is an amazing one!


Our wedding is March 27, 2014 and I'll post a reply after the date to let everyone know how it went.


Our schedule is as follows so far:


Mayan ceremony

Sand ceremony

cocktail hour



TTD session the next day with the Luna's


Check back with everyone soon!!!


Happy wedding planning!!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
