Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in Playa del Carmen (Mexico), but I am not limited in any way in terms of traveling to make the photo shoots. The travel costs are included for all weddings held in Riviera Maya. For other wedding locations a special quotation should be requested.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

In 2008, I started doing wedding photo shoots out of my city, and gradually my work as wedding photographer became more and more internationally known. In 2013, I decided to move to Mexico in order to shoot the weddings I had always dreamed of. I have shot hundreds of weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style forms part of a photography trend called Creative Wedding Photojournalism, which is a combination of documentary photography and creative photography. 
Documentary photography is based on the idea that the photographer should capture the moment as it is, without manipulating or modifying it. The idea is to capture reality in a truthful way, and to avoid creating an artificial reality. Therefore, I try to interfere as little as possible in the development of the event and let things happen naturally. 
However, I complement this documentary photography with creative photography, which in my case consists of working with the light and composition of the image with the goal of capturing the sensations of each moment in the most beautiful manner possible. 
A balanced combination of these two trends allows me to capture, in depth, all of the moments in a wedding—in its documentary aspect as well as in its aesthetic aspect.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

8-Hour Photo Shoot: 
This session has a duration of 8 consecutive hours. Photos are taken of all the moments of the wedding day: getting ready at the bride and groom’s hotel, the first look, bridal party, the ceremony, portraits of the newly-weds, photographs with family and friends, cocktail hour, reception, first dance, cake cutting, the bouquet and garter toss, dancing and the final party. One USB drive is submitted with 600 images in high resolution, all of them artistically retouched in color with their black-and-white version.

• An extra hour for the 8-Hour Photo Shoot is priced at 500 USD. 
• The services of Ivonne Matias as a second photographer are priced at 1500 USD.

1 Real Recommendation

Kathryn + Jack
Many brides have that special moment when they find “THE DRESS.” Don’t get me wrong, I loved my dress.

But, my butterflies-in-my-stomach, jump-up-and-down, do-a-little-dance moment came when I found “THE PHOTOGRAPHER.”

You know how it goes, you spend hours looking at website after website of photographers and none of them speak to you, inspire you, or even make you smile. Then … I found Adrian.

Adrian and his partner, Ivonne, are masters at their craft. I fell in love with his candid pictures and portraits of the bride and groom. I also love that he took a lot of portraits of Read More individual guests. My absolute favorite part of his pictures is the lighting and softness. The pictures are romantic, warm, and draw you in.

From beginning to end, working with Adrian was wonderful. He responded to emails quickly. My husband and I did not want any posed pictures, so Adrian’s style was right up our alley. They worked their magic all night snapping away and were practically invisible. You didn’t even notice them. They seemed to be at just the right place at just the right time. And captured so many magical moments.

End result? Stunning pictures that truly captured our special day. Each time I look at them, I feel as though I’m there … in the moment. And a lot of my guests have stunning, beautifully lit portraits, too. I just love that.

I would choose Adrian and Ivonne again and again. They were the best decision we made in our wedding planning. Hands down.

All the best,
Kathryn & Jack.
