We love working on the island of Cozumel (we love living on the island, too) because of the variety of locations for photos. In an afternoon, we can find a secluded beach, an unspoiled reef, dramatic rocks and cliffs, and (when the wind blows normally) crashing waves.
It doesn’t matter if we are doing an engagement photo session, a trash the dress session or a day-after session with newlyweds, chances are we’ll find an interesting location for photos. In addition, we have beaches that face the west for dramatic sunsets. Only Isla Mujeres, our small island neighbor to the north, can make the same claim.
Our photo sessions last around two hours, not counting travel time from a hotel or the passenger ferry dock. We’re always in favor of starting our afternoon with a margarita or a mimosa, depending on your preference. If you want to get in the water and splash around during your photo session, we always have a large bag available for your wet clothes.
While we love shooting underwater sessions, there are no clear (crocodile-free) cenotes on the island of Cozumel. Cenote trash the dress sessions are only available on the mainland. We have not been able to offer underwater sessions in the ocean, because we can’t count on clear water (the water is normally clear, but if a storm or an unusual current comes in then we would be out of luck). We also don’t really have a safe spot where couples can rest in-between photos, which we can always find at a cenote. Also, the salt content of the ocean makes buoyancy a force to combat. We love making cool photos, but our number one priority with our couples is safety. We never put our couples in any danger. Our photo disclaimer is that “No brides were harmed in the making of these photos!!!”
