Yes, I will go to any part of the world. I am based in Puerto Vallarta (Mexico), but I am not limited in any way in terms of traveling to make the photoshoots.

They are included for all weddings held in Puerto Vallarta. For other wedding locations a special quotation should be requested.

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.

No, we do not. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that on our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing millions of images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one.

You can hire me contributing with 30% of the price of the package.

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

We have shot at hundreds of venues, so there is a good chance that we have. However, if we have not, we will get to the venue early on the day of and be sure to perform a thorough walk-through to scout out the best photography locations. We also do extensive online research prior to your big day!

I normally start two hours before the ceremony at the bride and groom’s hotel so that I leave enough time for traveling. For example, if the ceremony starts at 5 pm, the photo session at the bride and groom’s hotel would start around 3 pm.

Yes. This is the only exception I make in terms of spontaneity. I think that the group photos of the newly-weds with family and friends are interesting and there is no problem with taking them.

I do not take photos during the meal, except in some exceptional moments. A break is taken from the first course of the meal until the desserts come out. Photographs of people eating do not come out well and it is better to let them rest and enjoy their meal and calmly converse.
