Cancun Wedding Photographer – M&J Photography
Cancun Wedding Photographers love shooting in Cancun because of the Las Vegas-sized hotels, white sandy beaches and warm, Caribbean water. The Cancun hotel zone has hotels for every taste and for most budgets. Many resorts offer several restaurants, spas and daily activities. The amount of activities are endless: day trips to Isla Mujeres, adventure parks, and summertime snorkel trips to swim with whale sharks (don’t miss this!). We really like a relatively new area north of town called Playa Mujeres. Most the resorts here have been very eco-aware and have left the dunes and vegetation intact.
Where to get Married in Cancun?
There are numerous resorts in the hotel zone and south to Puerto Morelos. Here are a few that might interest you.
Good staff, interesting grounds and architecture and cool spots for creative photos. We work here often.
We love the big grassy area for receptions, and food that is definitely a notch or two above the all-inclusive resort cuisine.
The highlight at this resort is the rooftop terrace, which is perfect for a private reception with killer views of the entire Cancun hotel zone.
The Now resorts have great style and this resort has several nice spots for creative photos.

When to get Married in Cancun?
This is a little harder than you might think. Winter and spring are usually nice and dry, but a cold front (norte) can arrive at anytime and make things relatively chilly (it might be in the high 60s F during the day). Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 until November 30, but we have noticed that the rainiest time is usually October. March can be windy, April is usually warm and dry. Even if it is hot during the day in the winter, there is almost always an ocean breeze and you can count on the time just before sunset to be comfortable.
NOTE: The Cancun beaches are on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The prevailing winds (usually around 10-15 mph) are from the east. You should take this into consideration when planning your wedding (and your hairstyle).
Mid July – Mid September: Snorkeling with whale sharks in the open ocean. An amazing day trip that you shouldn’t miss.
Any Month: Day trips to Isla Mujeres for a slower pace and some good snorkeling and sunset cruises.
