We hired Monica to take our engagement photos and I honestly cannot say enough good things! As a slightly camera shy couple her warmth, joy, and expertise really helped us open up more in the photos. She really helped direct for the shots which we desperately needed, but was never bossy or demanding. I have never had photos of either of us that I’ve loved more. They’re genuine, but flattering. Romantic, but not cheesy. If you’re still making a decision on what photographer to use, don’t hesitate! You will be so happy with Monica!
We had SO MUCH FUN with Monica during our hour-long "LOVE" photoshoot on Playacar Beach. She made us feel so comfortable, gave just enough guidance throughout the shoot, and made us smile and laugh. We just got our photos from her and we feel she truly captured our love! We are just amazed by how they turned out – the sky, the colors, our expressions toward each other – she is truly a professional! She is so incredibly professional and and her artwork is something we'll cherish forever.
We originally wanted to take photos at Tulum but the beach there was not beautiful enough due to the seaweeds. Monica was able to schedule another section 3 days later when we arrived at Cancun and the Cancun section was a sunset section, which was very impressive!
Monica is very friendly and easy to work with. She is a pleasure to work with and provide good spots to take photos and great tips of how to dress up in color matching etc. her tips are very useful! the hair artist she recommended is great too!
My husband and I visited Mexico on two separate occasions to find out where were wanted to have our destination wedding. We finally decided to have our wedding at The Omni Cancun Hotel and Villas because it was the right price point that we could afford with luxury for ourselves and our families. My most memorable moment was having both of our families come together from all over the world to witness our union together. The moment I experienced walking down the aisle for the first time was very nerve wrecking but also memorable because I was marrying the love of my life. Everything went perfectly during my wedding day as everything that was planned worked out well. One tip for brides who would like to have a wedding in Cancun is to definitely do your research on your vendors and to remember it is a once in a lifetime opportunity that passes quickly. I planned my wedding myself and exactly how I wanted it to be, it took two years but everyday mattered. My wedding coordinator recommended not only one but two wedding photographer vendors for our wedding but unfortunately I was not happy with the photos and had to decline each. I did my own research and was lucky enough to find Monica Lopez Photography via WeddingWire and couldn’t have been happier. I read her story and viewed her work and automatically knew she had to be my photographer! She is so gifted and on the months/weeks/days leading up to the wedding, she was always checking in on me and always offering her assistance. Monica and her partner Isidro knows how to work with couples perfectly and are a great team together. My favorite picture in our sneak peak photo is my husband and I in the sunlight putting the ring on my finger during the ceremony. I highly recommend Monica Lopez Photography to every bride who would like to have a wedding in Mexico. You shouldn’t hesitate to book her as she will not disappoint!
We cannot recommend working with Monica Lopez Photography enough! Her professionalism was clear from our first exchange of emails. Planning a destination wedding can be a stressful endeavor, and we sincerely appreciate that Monica helped make this part of the planning process smooth and easy.
Monica Lopez Photography turned around our wedding photos very quickly. We were so excited to review each photo and share with all of our loved ones. We've only heard lovely feedback from all of our family and friends.
Monica was amazing to work with! We love our pictures and appreciate her time and dedication to such an important event in our lives!
--Why did you pick Playa del Carmen / Azul Fives for your wedding?
We chose Playa del Carmen because it's always a good time there! It has white sands against beautiful blue water, is more affordable than other destinations, and has great weather. It’s amazing how quickly the day flew by, but when we reminisce, we mostly remember laughing and smiling. We also enjoyed incorporating Filipino wedding traditions into the ceremony and reception.
We are extremely grateful for Monica and her team. Monica is quick with the shutter. She is exceptional at capturing candid moments that illustrate our relationship with each other and with our loved ones. We feel that she truly captured “us”! We also admire her thoughtfulness, creatively incorporating others into the scene, creating an even BETTER photo!
Monica and her team really know how to “go with the flow” of things, as I am sure, not every wedding party tries to pants the groom. (Lol!)
--Which one is your favorite picture and why?
We went through the package of photos over and over again, but we could not decide on one! We scroll through the photos and just smile the entire time. However, for the sake of choosing one, I’m choosing a photo of me twirling Arvine on the pier. After he twirled me, I jokingly said, “Okay, you’re turn!” and he happily twirled! I think this photo summarizes not only the feel of our wedding day, but also our relationship. “If love is the treasure, laughter is the key” – Yakov Smirnoff
I loved Monica! We used her for our wedding this past August. She was so sweet and easy to work with. Coming from Ohio to plan a wedding in another country was scary. I also hold pictures as my top priority for a wedding, but I saw her reviews and style of work and chose her. I'm so happy I did, and now will hopefully help someone else by reading my review! We received 500 digital pictures and I just love them all! The quality is amazing. Also, we got our pictures back within a month! Her response to any questions I had was so quick. I wish her nothing but love and success and highly recommend.
I came across Monica's work while looking for a photographer to capture my destination wedding. I first contacted her in August 2016 and kept in touch with her up until my wedding day in April 2017. Monica always responded to my questions in a timely and professional manner. She helped me chose the best wedding package and went through my expectations and a timeline for my big day. Monica and her second photographer Santiago did an amazing job capturing the special moments of our wedding and I am very happy with the results. Monica and Santiago were both very organized and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. I would highly recommend her, you won't regret it!
I actually found out about Monica from a friend here in Idaho who was married in Mexico about a year before us. We contacted her about 5 months before the date of the wedding. She set up a skype chat so we could 'meet' her before our big day. On the day of the wedding, Monica was punctual and wonderful to work with.
I had a brilliant idea to propose to my girlfriend during our stay in Cancun. Through Google I was introduced to Monica Lopez and a few other photographers. My request was simple; I need a great proposal idea and location. Outside of Monica, NONE delivered. Monica was so easy to work with. She provided me with multiple ideas and in English clearly explained everything I needed to know to get to the surprise location and a secret code so she would know the right moment.
Not only was the proposal location amazing, Monica then took us to another beautiful area to continue our photo shoot.
Monica put in 100% effort. She worked with every request we had and even got wet to capture the perfect beach shots!
This review is long overdue but if you need a photographer Monica is the one! She is amazing to work with and we are very happy with our photos.
To see our proposal, look here!
My Husband Steven, and I visited Mexico for our 1st wedding anniversary July 2017. We both have crazy/busy lives and wanted to relax and enjoy spending time with one another. We thought, what better way to capture these memories than to have photos taken?! We Googled a lot and did a ton of research to find someone to take photos for us. When I came across Monica, I knew she would be perfect for the job! She was so professional and fun. She made the photos so easy and comfortable. I have never seen a photo of hers that I did not like, and ours were no different. We had to buy all the photos because it was hard to pick and choose. We are so happy! We are definitely getting these printed to put in our home.
Booking with Monica was the best thing I did! I can't stop looking at my pictures over and over again. She captured every moment of the wedding and did an incredible job at editing the photos (not that I know much about it, but they look amazing!) I booked the 8 hour package and the price is definitely worth it! Monica and Jorge (the assistant) are awesome!
Monica shot our wedding on Isla Mujeres in January 2016.
We can't praise Mónica's great work on our wedding photos enough! She was an absolute pleasure to work with from the start. She was professional, helpful and straight forward during our inquiries and flexible and fun to work with on our big day. We asked for a few specific shots and Monica was on board and enthusiastic to get them just right. She knew great locations on the island for beautiful scenery too.
Looking back at our photos, she captured every special moment beautifully (which is impressive since they truly are moments! How she was able to be in just the right spot at just the right time without me seeing her continues to baffle me). She also captured our friends and family in posed shots and candids. Our photos are lovely and we couldn't be happier with them.
I know it can be frightening to sign a contract with someone you've never met but I'm confident that Monica will exceed your expectations as she did ours.
Additionally, she's so sweet, fun and personable. I know you'll love working with her.
I got help from Monica for my proposal photography in Cancun and she was great throughout the entire process. She explained everything clearly and helped me make my decision and she even helped me find the best spot to do the proposal. She was at the location earlier than what we agreed and stayed little longer, she even helped us find our way back to hotel after the photography. I did a lot of research before asking her for help and I can say that I am very, very, very happy with my decision. The picture came out great and she delivered them on time. If you are looking to hire a photographer in Cancun and are reading my review don’t hesitate, just book her!!!
If you are looking for a great photographer in the Cancun/Playa area, look no further! Monica was wonderful throughout the entire process. From when we first contacted her, months before the wedding, to when we received our photos after the wedding, she was nothing but helpful, friendly, open and eager to turn our special day into an unforgettable memory.
She accommodated our needs and wishes while also being creative. If you have not checked out her blog, you should, her photos are stunning. She has a great eye for photography and captured our moments better than we could have imagined. Her second photographer, Santiago, was also great!
We had a lot of trouble with many other aspects of planning a destination wedding but Monica was consistently one of the bright spots. She was very responsive and proactive about making sure she (and we) had the needed information. After we settled our contract with her, we decided we also wanted video of our wedding. We asked Monica and she put us in touch with a wonderful videographer (Oscar Nunez Video). They worked together and delivered an amazing product!
Some hotels, like ours, charge a fee to bring in outside vendors instead of using their preferred vendors. For us it was absolutely worth it! We wanted our small and simple wedding to look every bit as beautiful as those perfect weddings you see on Pinterest, and Monica was able to make it happen! We could not be happier with our pictures! Thank you, Monica!
Monica is a very nice photographer. She was totally flexible to arrange the shooting. My husband and I just loved our pictures and! I highly recomend her job!
What we have to say of Monica's work is just wonderful.
Perfect shots, left us at ease, we had great bargaining, was punctual delivery of photos, all beyond expectations. Are physical precious memories!
Thank you Monica! We highly recommend to couples who wish to do!
It was a wonderful day and thanks to Monica Lopez we have beautiful memories!
Monica was absolutely amazing, she has taken our family pictures and our wedding photos! So blessed to have had her do our pictures again after we found her 3 years ago! Do not hesitate, book Monica now! You will not be disappointed!
Hands down best photos for our destination wedding! This is a late review since I was having technical issues with wedding wire previously. We got married at Oceans Wedding venue on March 4th 2015. Monica was suggested to us by the venue's wedding planner, Bertha. Monica is a talented professional with great vision and use of color in nature. She did our wedding photos as well as our underwater trash the dress session. If you are a decent swimmer, I would highly recommend doing the underwater session! It was sooo much fun and one of a kind!
Monica was very accommodating and her pricing is very reasonable as well. The underwater shoot was a bit more expensive, understandably since it required most of the day, travel, and equipment, Worth every penny!
We hope to return for an anniversary shoot in the future!
Our pictures captured the beauty of the sunrise ....very professional....very clear pictures ...we are very pleased ...thank you for an awesome job ..

Monica did a excellent work with our wedding's pictures, she is so kind and professional. No doubt we recommend her services!
I hired Monica Lopez Photography to shoot my destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico at El Pez Turtle Cove in October. I hired both her, and her assistant which I cannot remember the name of (sorry)! I really recommend hiring two photographers for a wedding because they can capture so many more angles and give you a variety of photos to choose from! They were very nice and Monica personally helped me with finding vendors for my wedding which was not part of her job, but helped me tremendously being that it was a destination wedding and I have never been to Mexico before! Monica was lovely to work with and I would hire her again and again if I could! My pictures are beautiful and they were so creative on the spot to come up with gorgeous picture ideas! Please do yourself a favor and book her! You will not regret it!!
