My FI and I are going to Cancun tmr for our site visit! We're meeting our photographer and doing our engagement pics as well while we're there. Any suggestions about where to take pics? I want to do something other than just pure beach because well have a lot of wedding pics like that. I'm thinking small villages, etc.

Our photographer recommended Isla Mujeres - it looks gorgeous in pics. Any feedback?

Also, this might end up happening in the rain (haha) so maybe something that would still look cool.

Thanks for any suggestions!
Are there any ruins that have public access and where we'd be allowed to take pics? I see some ppl do ones near Playacar Palace?

we've heard Isla Mujeres is absolutely beautiful. I'd also consider going into Playa del Carmen to walk the streets and take pics around the market. I saw a TTD session where they did it, and it was so cool with the vivid colors in the background, and street scenes.

which outing would you enjoy more? IM or PDC...? two totally different experiences and looks! though I've heard there's a market on IM too that may be able to bring in some of the local feel, in addition to the beautiful island. 

 

I can't wait to find out what you decide!!! (and then see the pics)

We've never been to either before so were totally up to suggestions! Maybe I'll see what our photographer thinks will be nicer. He sent me some pics he's done on Isla mujeres and it looks fun w the golf carts and cliffs

Follow your photographer's lead. They know the area best! And if you've got a good one, they will be amazing!! Have fun and good luck! Enjoy!

I did my engagement photos in Playa Del Carmen and the area was beautiful.  The beach was great and they had the lush plant/tree areas with ruins near by then you can go to the streets and get good urban shots.  You can see my engagement photos if you go to my page.  


43 guests plus bride and groom.... ;)

We went to Isla Mujeres and I'm so glad we did. The places were gorgeous. We went to this place called Playa Sur (I think) and it was amazing vistas and cliffs. I think the pics are going to be stunning. We also took pics around town in front of the colourful buildings. I'll post an update and review once I get some pics!

Our trip was so short this time. Well have to make it to Playa del Carmen next time were here for our wedding in December!
