Xpuha family beach portrait session to celebrate 10 years of happy marriage. Mega congrats Arvizu Family!
We were blessed with a sunny and warm day for this session and loved the dynamic and good vibe that this family shares. Smiling, laughing, dancing and playing, our time together went by super fast but we enjoyed every second of it.
Sandy's idea is to this every year, to not only celebrate their love but to keep photo documentary of their family and simple life in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Can't wait for our next session. Gracias!!!
The story of an unexpected Cenote Mayan Wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
Have you heard of "The early bird gets the worm"?? Well, we are so happy we answered that unexpected call at 7AM, lol.
Entrepreneurs and adventure lovers, Sandi & Jimi, decided last minute to renew their vows with their 3 kiddos in a Cenote while vacationing in Playa del Carmen. We quickly packed up our gear while Sandi signed the contract mid-way in a taxi!! Finally, we all met up at Cenote Sacbe with a wonderful Shaman and witnessed a beautiful, intimate and unique love celebration.

Catherine & Kyle are two easy going souls who wanted to keep it simple and therefore opted for a Fun Azul Sensatori Destination Wedding to celebrate their love.
With just a small group and friends and family, and minimal decor (who needs lavish decor anyway when you have a breathtaking ocean view from the Sky Deck at Azul Sensatori), they said their I-do's and danced the night away!! Mega congrats Sr. & Sra. Melching, we wish you both an incredible life together!

"I absolutely love capturing our kind" - Ches and specially if it's something different, like this sultry outdoor boudoir session.
My dear friend Francesca carries herself so naturally and was easy to work with. I especially loved the contrast of her sexy tattoos and lingerie with the warm natural light and jungle-beachy surroundings.
Check it out and enjoy, this session is very inspiring!!

We are so excited to share with you all this beautiful, colorful and fun ... cultural bohemian Tulum Mexico Wedding!!
Stephanie & Rikin are two fun and laid back New Yorkers, who chose Tulum to celebrate their love and the fusion of their roots, cultures and traditions: Hindu-Jewish.
We were fascinated by the rich details, colors, patterns and the simple yet tasteful decor of both ceremonies and reception. A lively baarat on the beach preceded the traditional Indian wedding ceremony; followed by an outfit change, the signing of the Ketubah and an emotional Jewish wedding.
The entire group enjoyed a live Mariachi band, amazing food, a few tequila shots and the good vibes and energy of Tulum during the rest of the evening. Mr. & Mrs. Mantri, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the chance to capture such a magical celebration!!!

After many years together shaping the life of their dreams, these high school sweetheart tied in the knot with a Glam Mexico destination wedding. We loved everything about this wedding: the sparkly champagne mix-matched bridesmaids dresses, the love Mel & David have for each other, the smiles, the stunning flowy wedding dress, the amazing weather and the dreamy stone gazebo at the Finest Playa Mujeres Resort in Cancun, Mexico (which complimented Mel's vision of a fancy relaxed wedding).
Thank you much Mr. & Mrs. Beck!!! We wish you many years of incredible adventures and experiences together.

A heartfelt and intimate Azul Beach Wedding in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico. Michelle & Bruce share a beautiful bond and invited a close group of friends, which are more like family to them, to officially celebrate their union in the beaches of Mexico while enjoying a nice weekend together. Keeping it simple but with a few colorful details like Maracas, Papel Picado and of course, a good Tequila shot, the day went by smoothly and we all had a wonderful time!! Mil felicidades Mr. & Mrs. Williams!

We truly believe that life is an incredible journey presented to us in order to learn, grow, develop, and become the best version of ourselves so that we can give back to others and be in synchronicity with the natural world and its inhabitants.
We met over 16 years ago, studying photography and since then, we have created a lifestyle completely focused on our deep-seeded passion. It is amazing to be able to share such a passion with the true love of our lives. Because of our devotion to this profession and to each other, we have created incredible partnership that presents a unique image. We go far beyond taking a “portrait” or creating a photographic record of your life experiences. We strive to créate personal stories based on your personalities and the emotions that shine through. We are committed to highlight the essence of each individual captured by our lense. We know that each individual is unique and special, and that is why we emerge ourselves in your experiences to provide images that are equally unique and special. Many believe that the wedding day is “the best day of your life”, but for us, it’s much more than that. There are many incredible experiences in life and this is one of the many. Therefore, we are not there to present a file of this day. We become your friends from the beginning creating a comfortable relationship so that you can feel at home on your special day, while we live the experience with you. Our creative energies begin to flow and being in harmony with the couple, we are able to discover the idiosyncrocities and provide something unique and invaluable. Berni is a laid-back, easy-going soul who can make anyone smile. He is passionate, free-spirited, and truly enjoys life. He takes time to notice and appreciate the eccentricities and small treasures in life. He continues looking at the world through an artist’s eyes; always discovering and learning new things. He strives to be better each day and is in love with his profession and his life. Ches is a friendly, empathetic, intuitive, risk-taker. She is afraid of nothing and has a hunger for perfection. She is dedicated, driven, and motivated to connect with people in a special way. She has a genuine love for others and gives her heart in everything she does. She is an open and creative soul who will not stop until she has reached her goal. We have been married for 16 years, with two sons and we fall deeper in love every day. Our visión is to one day travel the world capturing the intimate moments of life’s experiences. When you choose Quetzal Wedding Photo, you are making a decisión to allow us into your lives on your special day. But after the champagne has been drank and the music has ended, you will have two new friends, amazing images, and even more important…memories to last you forever.
