Playa del Carmen

A Wedding in Playa del Carmen is always special, the charming of a mexican town mixed with one of the best beaches in the Riviera Maya, Playa is close enough to Cozumel and Tulum and not that far from the Cancun International airport. Despite not being as popular as Cancun, Playa del Carmen is growing in popularity and have an incredible offer for your wedding.

As a Photographer in Playa del Carmen I understand that the weather plays an important role for your wedding, Playa del Carmen's rainy season is mostly hard in September and October but you can find the most amazing sunshines during those months as well. The normal temperature rarely goes above the 90 °F during summer.

The Downtown in Playa is very convenient and safe. U.S. dollars are accepted in Playa del Carmen and other areas in the Mayan Riviera and the offer of places for eat and drink is widely available. If you want a destination wedding that mixes both Great Beaches and a great community, then Playa del Carmen is the best for you.

Cancun is this special place in the Riviera Maya that all the people is dying to go. Great Resorts, powder soft sand, amazing colors in the water and beautiful weddings! And as a Cancun Photographer I love to have weddings here!

Cancun is very well communicated with the US, Canada and Europe with direct fligts from the major world cities: New York, Frankfurt, Moscow, Munich, Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, Madrid, Paris... And the list is getting bigger every year, thus Cancun is the top 3 visited places in Mexico.

Situated on the second largest reef in the world, the Maya Reef draws divers from all over the world with its underwater gardens and warm, clear waters. Cancun is also home to a number of cenotes, or underwater caves, which make for an unforgettable and romantic excursion to plan around your Cancun wedding

The best weather to get married in Cancun are the last 2 months of the year and the first 3: November, December, January, February and March but the high wedding season is during April, May and June as well, with a weather similar to Playa, Cancun also has a rainy season mostly during September and October.

The offer of Wedding Venues in Cancun is Wide and it's one of the best destination wedding places not only in Mexico, but in the world. This is one of the reasons why I love working as a wedding photographer in Cancun, and I'm sure you will love your wedding here!

Frequently Asked Questions

section header separator

What is required to book my day?

I only require 20% of the wedding package to book your date, it can be done here in our site via PayPal, the balance can be paid at the wedding day or days before if it's better for you. I'm very flexible with this.

How and when we can see our wedding photos?

It usually takes 2-3 weeks for me to edit your photos, I carefully choose them and go one by one to edit all your photos, sometimes in peak season it can take me a little more. Remember that patience often leads to better results. All my packages are digital, I use an online service to give you your wedding photos, it has a password protection so all of them are safe, you can download your wedding photos with one single click from this gallery, it's super easy.

Can I upload my wedding photos to Facebook or other Social Network?

Absolutely, in fact I believe in sharing, and I give you all your photos without watermarks, remember to tag me to receive feedback from your friends and relatives!

Do you offer albums?

Yes I do! The wedding albums takes approximately 2 months to be completed. I carefully choose the best shoots, share our decision with you, and then do the design and printing. The albums are custom designed specially for you. All the albums have edge-to-edge printing, and open out flat to allow images to be spread right across two pages with no loss of the image in the centre crease!

Will you take photos of the groom as well as the bride before the wedding?

It all depends on the package and time, We usually try to visit both, the groom as well as the the bride before the ceremony. We will first visit the bride for the getting ready session with her bridesmaids, if the time is enough and the groom is nearby of course we will visit him and his groomsmen too, but sometimes the time is not enough so we can offer you a second photographer too, just ask for it!

Do you charge travel expenses?

There are no travel expenses for weddings on Playa del Carmen and Cancun, sometimes if the party ends late at night and it's not really safe to return, I may need to charge for a hostel night near the wedding place, nothing too fancy, you've already paid enough for your wedding.

What is not included in the price?

Sometimes the hotels charges extra if you're not using their photographers, I don't share this practice, there are just a few of them, but if they do, it is the only thing that is not included in the prices.

Do you offer discounts?

Yes I do! I offer special discounts for weddings from Monday to Thursday, sometimes in late season I may offer you a discount too, just ask for it!

Something happened and I need to Cancel / Change my date

I'm Reserving the day for you, even if it's a 1 hour service or a 12 hours Wedding, I'm very flexible and if you need to change the day and I have it available there is no problem at all. If I have the day busy or you need to cancel the service, there is no refund of the booking fee.

How many wedding photos will I get?

About 50-60 photos per hour, to be honest, I always deliver more than that!!
