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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
