Super charismatic and happy couple, Elisett and Milton traveled far away from the city high -rise buildings of Brooklyn, New York. Leaving their luggage in their luxury room, they went on an adventure with us through the streets, jungle, and beaches of Playa del Carmen. These two are authentically in love and ready to tie the knot after five incredible years together! Next May, they will say "I do" in front of friends and family in New York spring wedding. Congratulations on your engagement, Elisett and Milton!
This Dorado Maroma Wedding Riviera Maya was absolutely adorable. About a year ago, we met Mica and Nicholas for their Engagement Portraits! They were head over heels in love and still fresh in the planning process of their wedding. After visiting the jungle, beaches, cenotes, and cultural streets; they decided to return to the Riviera Maya for their special day. Mica’s gorgeous blush Modern Trousseau wedding dress blowing gently in the sweet Caribbean breeze, as she gazed at her handsome groom. Everyone was delighted to watch the couple exchange vows and enter into a new chapter. It was a day filled with smiles, joy, happiness, excitement, and lots and lots of love.

Carolyn and Joe left the big city rush in New York and came to the Dreams Riviera Cancun Wedding Photography to celebrate their love. They have been together over six years and share the joy in raising Perry, their beloved English Bulldog. Carolyn and Joe are a fun-loving, laid-back couple who love to travel, try new restaurants, and watching sports. They began to prepare for the day as the sun rose on the beautiful Caribbean Sea. An intimate gathering of family and friends to share funny stories and memories as they transformed into bride and groom. Exchanging cards written to each other, brought tears to their eyes, as Carolyn describes:
“We wrote each other letters and gave them the morning of the wedding. I know for me (Carolyn) reading Joe's letter in the midst of getting my hair and makeup done was really emotional. I never questioned that I was marrying the right person, but he definitely sealed the deal with the words in that letter.”
A beautiful stroll through the Dreams Riviera Cancun after first look, and they were so in love, they were shining. Easy to mark feelings of such strength and stability. Sweet and kind words and looks were shared throughout the ceremony on the beach. A gorgeous sunset ended cocktail hour with dark blues and pinks in the sky! A true moment in paradise. Carolyn and Joe enjoyed dinner, listened to their family and friends say kind words that moved them all. Joe and Carolyn were on the dance floor all night long. We are honored to capture such love and genuine support for each other. Congratulations, Carolyn and Joe!!!

Hi! My name is Ches. I am full of passion and enjoying living life to the fullest! I believe life is an incredible gift and our mission is to learn and develop insights to help us give back to others. In doing this, we can all be in harmony with the natural world.
My two sons, Eliu and Elias are my life. We love to spend evenings at the beach watching the Riviera Maya sun sets, drawing and painting together, playing with Luchita (our cat), and they enjoy placing insects on me and watching me scream!! Eww!! My other favorite things are dancing with friends and watching movies. I love the smell of fresh flowers, and always have to have them at home.
I am also published wedding photographer and owner of Quetzal Wedding Photo. I am an intuitive risk-taker. I have a genuine love for others and give my heart in everything I do. I am a flexible and creative spirit who will not stop until I have reached my goal. My vision is to one day travel the world capturing destination weddings and other special moments of life.
Many believe that the wedding day is “the best day of your life”, but for Quetzal, it’s much more than that. We know that each individual is unique and special, and that’s why we emerge ourselves in your experiences to provide incredible memories. We join your family and our creative energies begin to flow. Being in harmony with the couple, we are able to discover the idiosyncrocities and tell an intimate story of your most perfect day.
I LOVE working in a team who share my vision. They are kind, fun, and passionate. Based on the size of your wedding, you will also be blessed to meet some of them as my second shooter and assistant. Together, we create magic and our combined creativity leads to endless possibilities.
When you choose Quetzal Wedding Photo, you will be getting much more than just a documentary of your wedding. We will create an instant friendship that will go beyond the lense. Our relationship with you and your guests allows us to leave you with an invaluable legacy for all to enjoy for years to come.
