Where To Take Engagement Pics In Cancun/rm

Recommended Posts

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.

PDC is a good idea too! I love the vivid colours and street shot scenes. Hmm now to decide before tmr!

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.

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!

    • 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
