I am not only a honeymoon photographer in Cancun, as a matter of fact I also do wedding photography, boudoir photoshoots and underwater photo sessions in cenotes or in the sea. But if you are reading these lines it means you are probably interested in a honeymoon photo session. How about something like this?

I believe that beach photoshoot is about having fun, which may include running along the beach, jumping, kissing while waves are crashing against your body, cuddling and doing something else, childish and incredibly romantic. Why not?! Who said that we grown-ups need to be serious all the time? You will be able to stay concentrated at work when you give yourself a much-deserved relaxation-vacation. So, relax and experience joy while you are on your honeymoon in Cancun. That’s the main essence of candid and lifestyle photography. Be yourself, do what makes you happy at this precise moment and let the universal flow guide you.

How to plan a honeymoon photosession in Cancun?

how to plan a honeymoon photo session in cancun

1. Photographer.

First comes first and to find a honeymoon photographer in Cancun is your primary step. It will take time to do it because the photography market is saturated. Give yourself time to look through at least several portfolios and trust your inner creative voice to help you with making a decision.

2. Location.

Other than the resort area, there are more locations for a honeymoon photo session in Cancun. As an artist and photographer with an extended experience I assure that your willingness to travel outside Cancun all-inclusive resort will turn into an amazing experience and you will have super nice honeymoon photos. Contact me for more details and I will share with you some secret locations in Riviera Maya, Tulum and Isla Mujeres.

3. Outfit

This is a very important detail that implies your personal attention. Honeymoon photo session happens only once and for such a special occasion outfit is one of the priorities. Caribbean Sea, tropical nature is full of vibrant colors (green, yellow, blue, red etc.) and matching them with your outfit will make your photos stand out and simply more amazing.

4. Timeline

I understand that you might be tempted to schedule a photoshoot during the day, but before you do that, take into consideration that in terms of light the best time to take honeymoon photos in Cancun, Isla Mujeres or anywhere along the coast of the Riviera Maya is in the morning or late afternoon. It is better to do a sunset honeymoon photosession in Isla Mujeres (20 min away from Cancun), because its geographical location exposes the north side of the island to the sunset. In Cancun direct sunset is visible only at the side of laguna Nichupte. And if you are one of those who wakes up early (I do it around 5.30 am) scheduling a sunrise photoshoot might be a good idea.

5. Mood

Yes, a photosession is not something you do every day, but its result will stay with you forever. Do you want candid, happy and nice honeymoon photos? The best way to get them is to enjoy a photo session, smile and trust your photographer. Have fun, follow the relaxing flow of a photoshoot and you will love your photos.

Ideas for a honeymoon photo session in Cancun.


When you think about Cancun, probably a beach is the first that comes to mind. And this is the most popular location for a honeymoon photo session. Either you do it at a resort’s beach or a public one you will have beautiful photos at the end.

Trash the dress.

This type of a photo session was invented around 10 years ago and nowadays it’s super popular in Cancun and other tropical places around the globe. The main idea behind “trash the dress” photoshoot at the beach is to take photos of a couple in wedding gowns standing in the water or running along the sealine while waves are crashing against their bodies. You can choose a casual outfit, if you prefer more lifestyle photos. And don’t be afraid your dress will just get wet and can easily dry under the sun, but you will have an unforgettable experience.

This is an artistic adventure, so if you are looking for one send me a message and I will help you to plan it. There are several amazing locations around Cancun where I usually do underwater photosessions and all of them are available to you if you say “Yes” to this creative adventure.

What to do during your honeymoon in Cancun?

1.Photo tour in Isla Mujeres.

This beautiful island is located just 20 min away from Cancun. To arrive there, you will need to use a yellow-blue ferry from UltraMar company. For your convenience there are multiple pick-up spots in Cancun hotel zone. Photo tour in Isla Mujeres is a combination of a tour and a professional photo session. Together with a photographer you will visit the most interesting, unique locations in the island and the photographer will take photos for you. Are you interested in a photo tour to Isla Mujeres? Contact me to find out details.

2.Visit Mayan ruins.

Chichen Itza, Coba and Uxmal are among the most popular places of interest to visit in the Yucatan peninsula. These famous Mayan ruins are located 2-3 hours away from Cancun and many travel operators offer organized tours that you can purchase online or at one of the travel agencies that has their representatives in the Hotel Zone. These tours are time consuming, so if you don’t want to spend 4-6 hours on the road to see Mayan ruins, you can visit El Rey museum in Cancun, which is located at the end of the Hotel Zone between Crown Paradise Club and Iberostar resort. It’s open from Monday to Sunday from 8am-5 pm.

3.Have a romantic dinner at the restaurant

Staying at an all-inclusive resort is super convenient in a way that you don’t need to think about where to have breakfast or dinner, since all delicious food is already included in the price per night. But how about to going out to the city one evening and exploring local restaurants?  Something new is always interesting, especially if it’s your first visit to Cancun. Does it sound like a good idea? If you answered yes, then here is a list of good restaurants located in Cancun Hotel Zone that you might want to consider for a romantic dinner.

  • Crab house
  • Cenacolo
  • Rosa Negra
  • Lorenziillo’s
  • Tora
  • Puerto Madero
  • Navios fusion
  • Porfirio’s
  • Limoncello’s
  • La Buena Barra

4.Tour in the lagoon.

At the opposite side of the beach in Cancun there is Lagoon Nichupte. Although it doesn’t have this mesmerizing turquoise color that is a trademark of a Caribbean Sea there are still several water activities available, with fishing and boat tours being the most popular.

5.Chill out at the beach.

And do it as many hours as you can, because you are in Cancun, a Caribbean city with one of the best beaches in the world. Wish you an unforgettable honeymoon vacation in Cancun!
