Elopement Photographers for Small Yucatan Peninsula Weddings

Adrian Bonet is a Wedding Photographer for Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya and Playa del Carmen

I was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1980. I started working as a photographer in 2006 when I founded in my hometown a company dedicated to advertising photography. At that time, I was especially focused on portrait and fashion photography and I worked for big companies and well-known advertising agencies. Over time, I became interested in wedding photography until I decided finally to devote myself completely to it. In 2008, I started doing wedding photo shoots out of my city, and gradually my work as wedding photographer became more and more internationally known. In 2013, I decided to move to Mexico in order to shoot the weddings I had always dreamed of. I toured Mexico from north to south doing many photo shoots. I worked in Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Campeche, Merida, Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, among many other places. On a personal level, I have also visited different continents around the world. I know America, Europe, Africa and some of Asia. I love music, movies, art and literature. I am passionate about photography—the act of capturing the beauty of a moment and freezing it in time. Today I live in Playa del Carmen and I am dedicated to shooting destination weddings for couples from all over the world. [Playa del Carmen Wedding Photographer]

Playa del Carmen Wedding Photographer Vincent Guérault, Buen Ojo Studio of Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya

I was born and raised in France, after my studies in marketing and a few small jobs I decided to dedicate myself to capture the best moments of families in the Riviera Maya Mexico. I believe photography should always try to capture emotions first, I strive to create candid images that tell the story of your day! I think that before being a good photographer I am a good human being. That for me is the key to be able to take great images. [Playa del Carmen Wedding Photographer]

Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe!

Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
