Hello, my name is Alessandro Banchelli, I’m Italian and I live in the beautiful Riviera Maya. I have been living in Mexico since 2007.
My career as a professional photographer began in 2000 in beautiful Florence, where I obtained a degree in Philosophy at University of Florence. What makes a good photographer..... many skills to be professional in Weddings: a good human being, a person who loves his job, always be friendly and polite, look at the world as an artist and be wiser than the day before. If the photographer is funny and professional the wedding day will be an amazing event. Trust me…
I’m a person who likes to spend time reading, listening to good music, enjoying quality time with my friends and the people I love. I also like to practice Chi kung and Tai chi, meditation and walk on the beautiful nature of the Caribbean beach. I like to visit Art exhibitions, watch good Art movies and cook a good meal with a glass of wine (Italian wine! Of course.....)!
I’m so glad to discover the world with my camera, because this is not just my job….it is my passion, it is my life.
I'm member of the best Wedding Associations in the world WPJA and ISPWP and awarded photographer.
I’m a story teller and I like to use the images to write your love story. I know every story is beautiful but yours is unique! I love to mix photojournalist style with a portrait approach. All the emotions on the best moments of your life are captured with our cameras while the magic of love makes the bride and groom glow. I feel have worked in one of the best destination weddings in the world "The Mexican Caribbean".
Every site has a mysterious beauty and I love it.
A sunset in Mexico or a Dawn on the beach is my Office and my Home!

We are really happy with Alessandro's work and would highly recommend PhotostudioAB to our friends and family.
My wife and I got married in Cancun in early July of 2016 and hired PhotostudioAB as our photographer. He met with us the day before the wedding to go over the itinerary and any questions/concerns. On the wedding day, he arrived with his assistant and delivered 9 hours of solid photography work. He was on-time and very professional throughout, which we really appreciated.
The final photos really look amazing, it is clear Alessandro has a lot of experience and great style. We also provided him with some sample wedding photos beforehand and he was happy to replicate them for us. A lot of his experience came through when he would make certain suggestions for various shots given the circumstances (e.g. lighting, beach sand, etc), and many times he exceeded what we had in mind. He had a clear plan and yet was very flexible to our suggestions.
Since we stayed at the resort for a week, Alessandro was able to deliver a surprisingly quick turnaround in person. We had another meeting near the end of our trip where he gave us a slideshow preview of his work and delivered the final product via DVD's.
Alessandro and his assistant Cristiano were a pleasure to work with. They are both very friendly and easy-going people yet they are professional and get the job done. There are really only great things I can say about my experience with PhotostudioAB.
Thank you guys for your awesome work and providing us with great shots of our best moments!

My husband and I chose Photostudio AB for our February 2016 wedding at the Barcelo Maya Palace in Riviera Maya, MX. Alessandro was extremely responsive from the beginning and available to answer questions anytime. When our wedding day finally arrived Alessandro and his assistant were not only extremely professional but they were a blast. I would recommend Phtotstudio AB to anyone, they offer an amazing value and the finished product was perfection! Thank you Alessandro!

The best of the best!
Alessandro was a fantastic asset to our daughters Wedding on October 31 in Playa Del Carmen. The couple agree as we do that he was easy to work with and was very professional. He truly caught the couples love and who they are on camera his pictures are breathtaking. All of the guests commented over and over again how awesome Alessandro was and how he got them to enjoy the picture taking process. We would hire him again 100%. The best money we spent was hiring Alessandro!
