Talented, caring, helpful, professional, personable... Dorota is all of these things and more. Dorota spoke to me on the phone for 45 minutes, before I even hired her, giving me helpful hints of things to think of and remember. This information was so valuable to me since I live in Ohio and was getting married in Mexico! She made me feel relaxed and comfortable on my wedding day. And to top it all off the photos were amazing! Thank you for so beautifully capturing the moment.Sent on 12/13/2017

Choosing dorota was one of the best decisions I made for the wedding. A lot of resorts charge a vendor fee but it was worth every penny because no resort photographers could've given me prompt communication, amazing original pictures and unlimited photographs! Dorota and tatiana were both so lovely, friendly and showed a lot of enthusiasm and that made the entire wedding group feel comfortable and at ease.Sent on 03/20/2019

I am so thankful to have found Dorota Jamal! She was such an lovely person and very professional. She is very, very passionate for creating amazing images. She responded to dozens of my emails promptly and had great communication through the entire process. On my wedding day, she was such a valuable asset and made things so easy so I didn't have to worry about a thing. She produced amazing quality pictures without any restrictions which is hard to come by with destination wedding photographers. Her pricing is very reasonable. I received my edited pictures back within a month of the wedding with an online gallery for me to download. I would recommend her to any couple planning on having a destination wedding. Thank you again!Sent on 03/15/2019

We cannot say enough positive and good things about Dorota. The pictures that she took on our wedding day were AMAZING. We were beyond excited and happy to see all of our photographers in high resolution so promptly after the wedding. They truly brought back so many good memories. The pictures that Dorota captured were not only beautiful, but there were so many emotional moments that she captured that brought huge smiles to our faces. Thank you so much Dorota! I still say it all the time how glad I am to have met her. We were fortunate enough to meet her in person a year before our wedding date. We instantly felt confident in our decision to have her as our photographer and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better person to capture our special day. From Dorota’s detailed and prompt responses from the very start, to her kind and welcoming personality in our initial meeting (and thereafter!), to all that she did during the wedding day. Every step of the way Dorota kept us informed, excited and satisfied. We are very thankful.Sent on 02/18/2019

I can’t thank Dorota enough for our wedding photographs. From my initial enquiry, Dorota was so helpful. She arranged a telephone call to discuss what I was looking for etc. and I didn’t think twice when booking her for my wedding day. I got emails on the lead up to my wedding with tips (a lot that I hadn’t even thought of) these were very helpful. On the day of our wedding, Dorota was just so lovely. She made me feel at ease and put a smile on my face through the nerves. After our wedding, I got a couple of “sneak previews” which always put a huge smile on my husbands and I’s face. I was always kept upto date on where she was at with my pictures which was great. We received our photographs 4 weeks from our wedding date and they were everything I hoped for and more. I highly recommend Life Wonders Photography !!! Thank you again & I wish you every success for years to come.Sent on 01/15/2019

Dorota was absolutely amazing! Selecting a destination wedding photographer can make a bride nervous, but Dorota communicated with me during the entire planning process, so I was not nervous at all! She arrived on time, was friendly, took all the photos I asked plus more! The photos are SO BEAUTIFUL! She was worth every single penny!Sent on 10/06/2018

Hiring Dorota was one of the best decisions in our wedding planning process. She was very helpful in creating a timeline for the day and her communication was always so warm and personal. We paid for four hours of photography and received over 400 beautiful photos that really captured the best moments of our wedding, where the resort photographer quoted us a higher price and would've only allowed us to select 60 photos. Not only is she a talented professional, she is a kind person who immediately puts you at ease. She cares about more than just your pictures, she wants your whole day to be wonderful. For example, when my bridal party was struggling with the corset of my dress, she helped them figure out what to do. As an lesbian couple, some of the vendors we encountered treated us poorly or awkwardly. This was not the case working with Dorota. She celebrated alongside us and we felt like any other couple on their wedding day. I fully recommend this photographer for anyone who wants beautiful pictures and to work with someone who truly cares about what they do :-)Sent on 08/24/2018

Our experience was incredible!! Dorota and her assistant Tatianna were so nice! I felt like they were lifelong friends. They captured candid moments, which are my favorite pictures! Everyone told me to have the best photographer our wedding, so we really put all of our trust in Dorota! You get what you pay for and we I feel as if we got so much more! She is worth every single penny!! And, our guests commented on how great they were! The only problem we are having is what pictures to hang on our walls!Sent on 05/01/2018

After researching photographers in the Cancun area, I came across Life Wonders Photography and reached out to Dorota. After setting up a call with Dorota, I decided I had found our photographer for our destination wedding! From the very beginning, she was very responsive and helpful. She answered all my questions and gave me lots of tips leading up to the wedding day. Dorota's Associate Photographer, Matt, photographed our wedding. Matt was awesome! He made my husband and me feel very comfortable and it showed in our photos. He captured some AMAZING sunset shots. I also appreciated Dorota's sneak peak photos after the wedding. I highly recommend Life Wonders Photography!Sent on 05/04/2018

Dorota is absolutely fantastic! Throughout our entire experience she provided us with the utmost professionalism. She brought a certain calmness in her calls and emails that gave me such peace of mind. Dorota knows what she's doing! Her photographs show her experience and she goes the extra mile in helping you prepare with great tips and ideas-she even sends you an estimated timeline of what to expect on the big day! She is completely on top of things every step of the way. You can tell she genuinely cares about the satisfaction of her customers. I just adore Dorota and the photos she took of our destination wedding.Sent on 03/05/2018

Dorota was wonderful to work with. Our photographs are so beautiful and captured our day exactly how I remember it. She provided prompt professional service. She stuck to her timeline. I like how she sends her destination wedding tips - they are very helpful. She is very flexible and offered a wide range of services - something for everyone. I would highly recommend her!Sent on 02/01/2018

Dorota is such a wonderful lovely lady! After searching online for photographers I was reccomended Dorota and I fell in love with her photos straight away. From the very beginning of my booking Dorota was with me every step of the wedding planning way. We spoke on the phone, through emails and she even sent me weekly/monthly wedding tips which I loved and were really helpful!Sent on 01/05/2018
On the day of the wedding, Dorota put me at ease, photographing my day without making me feel awkward or silly. She kept me calm when it started to rain and made sure she caught all the moments you would want on your big day. Through wind, rain and sun Dorota was not put off and no idea of mine or my husbands was off limits. Every time I look at my photos I smile and remember the beautiful memories! X

I loved working with Dorota! She is punctual and laid back and so easy to work with! She captured my wedding day exactly as I wanted it to be by talking with me on the phone and discussing what I imagined. She is also willing to give her advice on what people normally do in her previous experiences, yet ensured I was getting exactly what I wanted on the wedding day. She is very dedicated to her work and came to resort early to look at places that we could do our first look at. Overall, Dorota is amazing at what she does and is so comfortable and enjoyable to work with. I recommend her to anyone who wants great photos and an effortless time taking them!Sent on 07/06/2017

It was a pleasure to have Dorota as our family picture photographer at Riviera Maya. This is our first time taking our little daughter to go on trip with us. Dorota is patient, friendly, and professional. We are surprised when we saw our family pictures. They throw us back to the days in Riviera, our laugh, joy are captured just the moment we were. Thank you, Dorota. You made our trip much wonderful and unforgettable.Sent on 07/07/2017

Dorota is amazing! I am so glad I went with her instead of the resort photographer. She stayed longer than I expected without any extra charge, was really helpful and personable. She was very calm and professional which kept me calm during the chaos of photos. During my selection process she let me interview her and had excellent and knowledgeable responses. The photos turned out great and we're delivered on time. I felt she trult captured the spirit of my husband and I and the magic of our special day. I can't recommend her enough.Sent on 07/08/2017

Dorota from Life Wonders Photography was an absolute pleasure to work with for my destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera! Our first contact through email along with her personal phone call to discuss my hopes and plans for the shoot, and the emails with suggestions to consider leading up to the day of my wedding all inspired confidence. On the day of the wedding, Dorota's calm and confident presence was a pleasure to work with and she has an excellent eye for capturing the spirit and special moments as they happen. From start to finish, Dorota provided professional service, excellent advice, and captured wonderful memories. I highly recommend the services of Life Wonders Photography!Sent on 03/25/2017

We were looking around for a photographer down in Playa Del Carmen Mexico for our wedding and came across many possible photographers including Dorota. We were quite nervous since there are many unknown; However, this subsided "a lot" once we had the chance to talk with Dorota over the phone.Sent on 02/17/2017
She took the times to talk with us over the phone, she listened to what we want or what we envision our wedding photo to be like. We felt the entire time talking to her is like chatting to her friend and telling her about our wedding, she offered us a lot of advice and suggestion too.
One thing I really like was there was a lot of communication back and forth, by the time we arrived in Mexico we already established the rough schedule of the day specifically for the photoshoot and Dorota is very flexible, she works her magics to make sure it fits into our existing wedding day schedule.
On the day of the wedding, Dorota came really early to go and scope out photogenic spots that she eventually directed us to later on for our photo shoot. she found our room in the huge resort (iberostar paraiso beach) at exactly the time we agreed.
You probably asked yourself why we gushed over the other stuffs and not the photos yet. Welp, I don't think I need to say much becauset we are super super pleased with how the photo turned out. Dorota provided us with our photo in the exact timeline she communicated to us.
So if you looking for a photographer who can capture the important moments in your life and ensure that you have those gorgeous photos then Dorota would be our highest recommended person for that. Aside from her amazing skills, you also get in Dorota someone who does it with a lot of love and caring. I don't want to describe Dorota as "good customer service" because what she does is more like a friend of mine doing something special for us on our wedding day!

We absolutely LOVED working with Dorota. Prior to our visit we set up a call with her and told her our expectations. I also shared some of my Pinterest inspiration with her. I was a little nervous hiring a photographer from another country (we live in USA) but I shouldn't have worried at all.Sent on 11/14/2016
On the day of the photoshoot she arrived on time (we had a little issue with our hotel but that was not her fault at all). The whole experience and the photos she took were amazing. She posed us for every shot and made us feel very comfortable.
When we got our photos back I was in love with every single one. These are some of my favorite memories and I cannot wait to treasure them forever.

I cant stop talking about the wonderful services and engagement photos we received from Dorota. We are very happy and pleased with all of our photos!Sent on 10/19/2016
Dorota has excellent communication. She answered all of my questions before we arrived in Cancun and kept us updated after the shoot when we returned to California. Her professionalism and kindness is what I truly appreciated. She arrived to the location on time and was ready to work. She was more than what i could have asked for.
She captured some really great shots that we didnt even expect. With our photoshoot being on a private yacht, we werent able to wear our shoes but of course she captured them on the boat with the sun coming down, it was a nice touch and a nice shot added to all the other photos we took. The candid photos came out amazing and she knew exactly where to place us for good lighting. We are so happy and would for sure use her again when we return to Cancun.
DO NOT LOOK ANY FURTHER FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER! DOROTA IS IT!!!

Dorota was my dream wedding photographer! I was so nervous picking a photographer that I'd had never met. So my mother and I flew down to Playa to meet with photographers. Dorota was the only photographer that agreed to meet with me! We met at Starbucks and had an amazing time discussing my vision and plan. After the meeting, Dorota even walked with us to the resort where the wedding was going to be and we discussed places and photos. A month before the wedding she emailed me asking for a list possible photos I would like. I listed like 50 different scenarios I'd like of all my guest. (To my surprised at the wedding her assistant had the list on hand, and sure enough everyone's scenario was photographed.) 3 months later we met again on my wedding day. We booked her for 5 hours and man did the time fly. It was extremely helpful that Dorota figured out a time schedule according to my wedding time and reception. This helped me figure out to tell people where to be and when. Her and her assistant were with me the whole day. They were like part of the party, they took photographs as we got ready and every now and then mentioned a pose. It wasn't awkward, everything flowed perfectly. My wedding was at 2pm in July and it was HOT, but you would never know by how beautiful Dorota's photos came out. I even had an issue with my cake and the resort and Dorota went out of her way and sorted the issue out. It was very helpful that she was bilingual! The main reason I picked Dorota was that I got a digital copy of every single photo she took & she edited every single picture! Everyone else I looked at wanted to be paid per the hour and paid per the picture. Thanks to Dorota I have a copy of every single picture. I can tell my family and friends to go to her webpage and download any of the pictures they'd like. Once downloaded my family and I can take them and have them printed anywhere! This was amazing compared to all the people I looked at. Dorota was amazing and I would recommSent on 10/12/2016
