I am based in Playa del Carmen (Mexico). The travel costs are included for all weddings held in Riviera Maya (Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum). For other wedding locations a special quotation should be requested.
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.
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.

3 Featured Couples
While there are many photographers available in Riviera Maya, we found that your artistic expression, photo retouching, and commitment to success were worth the extra investment to have you travel from Mexico City and photograph our wedding. This was the best investment we could have made for Read More our wedding day!
All of our guests commented on how attentive you were and noticed the amount of photos and differentiated approaches you were taking throughout the day. Your passion for photography is truly evident in every photo. My friends say I am the pickiest person they know, and you managed to exceed my expectations! We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for high-quality photography.
We are so happy we found you!
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.
He communicated well before the wedding despite the language difference (my wife speaks Spanish but I did most of the organiz ing of the venue and photographer), making sure we had a solid timetable of events and an idea of the style of wedding we were planning. He also checked out the venue beforehand, which we thought was very professional.
During the wedding (through preparation, ceremony and reception) both Adrian and Ivonne worked quietly and almost unnoticed. This Read More allowed them to capture some beautiful moments as people could just get on with having a good time and not worry about a camera in their face. At least half of the guests commented to us about how impressed they were with the photographers on the day. They also worked quickly with us while doing the couple portraits as we wanted to get back to the party. They also had to race at times as the best light came and went very quickly throughout the day due to the weather.
After the wedding we got to see the first photos within a few weeks. We had a large number of images that we were very happy with, which made it tough to choose the ones for the album. We have recently received the album, which looks absolutely amazing. We would have had it in November/December if not for our indecision with the images we wanted.
We have been to a few weddings now and are sure we had the best photographer of any of the ones we have been to. His style was exactly what we were looking for. We knew straight away that we could trust him to deliver on the day (we have friends who weren’t so lucky with their photographer), which was really important to us, obviously.
He exceeded our expectations. We would recommend Adrian without hesitation.
