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.

This Secrets Silversands Wedding was a photography dream come true!
We met Annie and Rich a few months ago to make their engagement photos in Cancun. We instantly clicked! They are two laid back, sarcastic, and very funny people. We laughed and laughed throughout their session! As you can imagine, as their wedding date approached, the excitement kept building. We kept in constant communication right up until we found Annie in the spa and Rich in his hotel room with his crew. Their wedding was full of happiness, energy, and family!! They had a Jewish ceremony that took place on a gazebo on the ocean at the end of a dock in the Riviera Maya. Their ceremony was intimate, meaningful and emotional. When each of them spoke their vows, the sincerity and conviction rang through the soft breeze. All of their guests connected as if they were one family, making it a very special day.
Rich and Annie met online through a Jdate, a jewish dating website. They went on a few dates and decided to move in together. Annie explains, “we felt an immediate connection, comfort and ease with one another. Everything about being together was easy and fun. Mundane daily errands were more fun when we were together”. They've been together for three and a half years and spend virtually every day together. The love to work out, hangout and go out together. They are each other's best friends.
Annie and Rich’s wedding was fun for everyone! The friends and family that surrounded these two special people were incredible. All of them truly supported the love between Annie and Rich. They toasted them and filled the room with laughter, tears, and joy. They sang originally wrote songs and danced for them. The energy in the room was euphoric and genuine, and the moves on the dance floor were hotter than the fireworks that went off during Rich and Annie's first dance! It was an honor to be invited into a group of people lives’ for one of their most special days!
Here’s to Annie and Rich! May you be lifelong best friends!

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!!!

A modern Azul Beach Mexico wedding was the way to go for Christy and Sergey, who travelled from New York to the Mexican Caribbean with a small group of friends and family!!
The day started with some fun "Buy the bride" games to honor Sergey's Russian background. After smelling fish, drawing and doing all kids of crazy things, he finally got to see his lovely bride and take her to the hotel's ocean view rooftop to say their I-do's.
The funny and genuine personal wedding vows made everybody laugh! After sealing the deal with a sand ceremony, guests and newlyweds were treated to a delicious dinner and more games, speeches and dances. Special thanks to the amazing staff at Karisma Weddings for coordinating this memorable day.
Mega congrats Mr. & Mrs. Aleksandrovich!!

Dreams do come true and Sophie's mystical candlelit cave wedding in Mexico is proof of it!!
Deep in the mayan jungle is a magical place called Aktun Chen with an awe-inspiring cave. Close to mother earth, surrounded by candles, the smell of copal incense and with a Mayan Shaman, is where Sophie and Steven vowed to be there for each other!!

Hi! My name is Ches. I am a published wedding photographer and owner of Quetzal Wedding Photo, and I am in LOVE with what I do! Photography is my life. There is no other moment when I feel more alive than when I am behind the lens.
I have been taking pictures since my grandfather gave me my very first camera as a little girl. Since then, I have dedicated my life to photography. I studied it, lived it, became a slave to it, fell in love with it, relocated my life for it, and now have committed my life to it. I have won awards, ISPWP contests, and been published in many wedding magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Gay Weddings, Adriana’s Weddings, The Knot, Huff The Post, BeSpoke Bride, Loverly, Love Inc., and many more.
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.
Quetzal Wedding Photo is my baby, but I LOVE working in a team with others who share my vision. That’s why I have a handful of kind, creative, and dedicated photographers who are also my best friends working along side of me. 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 capture your day even better than you remember it.
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 lens. Our relationship with you and your guests allows us to leave you with an invaluable legacy for all to enjoy for years to come.
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. Quetzal Wedding Photo is one of the ways that I give to others. Check out the testimonial page to see what others think of Quetzal.
