How Much Does a Wedding Photographer Cost in Cancun Mexico?

How Much Does a Wedding Photographer Cost in Cancun Mexico?

The cost of a wedding photography service in Cancun (it will apply to all the Riviera Maya), is very similar to what you may pay in the US or Canada. Pricing for 6/8 hours of wedding coverage may start at around 2,000 US dollars.
These packages will not include that much, besides the coverage time and a limited quantity of edited images (online delivery). From there you can add a second photographer (always a good idea), order a photo album, or include a photo session (trash the dress - underwater).
Of course, you may (you will) find cheaper prices but like the old saying... `you get what you pay for`, there are hundreds (lots) of wedding photographers in the Riviera Maya, Cancun, and Playa del Carmen areas, but just a bunch of them are fully qualified for the job and have years of experience, these photographers will delivery memorable images.
Finding the right wedding photographer in the Riviera Maya may seem like a daunting task but in reality, you need to find the perfect balance between quality, style, and price (please put this to the end), always remember that you only have one chance of getting quality photos from your wedding and saving a few bucks today or finding a `good` deal could be a big mistake in future.
Avoid hard-to-believe deals like coverage for 500 dollars, usually offer for seasonal photographers living outside the area or people just starting the business.
We are a strong community always playing fair and trying to be 100% honest with our clients or prospect, but like on any service you may find a bad apple. Make sure that your candidate lives in the area as they proclaim this can make a huge difference for so many reasons.
Also, a very important point that I'd like to address, hotels are pushing hard to get more business (like if it wasn't enough already), they try to sell their own photography services and will put you in the corner applying to you high fees for bringing outside vendors (any vendor), the quality you will get from a hotel photographer is not compared to what you get from a full seasoned pro. So, be prepared to negotiate, do a deep online researching visiting Facebook, groups, asking friends and reading all you can, plan with time, and hire your photographer at least 6/8 months in advance. Keep in mind that top tear photographers are booked one year or more in advance (and their prices are always consistent), so if you already picked a few be sure to contact them ASAP. Note: ask your prospect photographer/s to show you at least 5 complete weddings (not just the best shots), from start to finished, from getting ready to the last crazy dancing photo, this is the best way to evaluate the quality of the images and the photographer's style. Sept. 2020 Update: Due to the CODIV-19 pandemic you may find some pretty good deals on photography and videography, vendors had a very rough time in the past 6 months., and to regain confidence and close new bookings offers are everywhere, so browse around and please review your photographer before taking any action.
