Destination Wedding in Cancun by Monica Lopez Photography

Keili and David’s Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Wedding was beautiful! I remember the warm light of October giving us the perfect setting for a ceremony by the beach. This loving couple contacted me just weeks before their wedding date. Why? Because they had been planning their special day in Los Cabos, but in 2014 it was hit by a hurricane and they had to move everything to the Eastern side of Mexico (We’ve been hurricane free for more than 10 years now!)

Cristina’s engagement ring sparkled, catching the sunlight throughout her engagement portraits in cancun on the white sand beaches. I met up with Cristina and Noel  at Emporio Hotel, located in the southern part of the Cancun Hotel Zone, an area known for the incredible blues of its waters. The day was just right for a photo shoot on the beach, with amazing ocean colors and an array of fluffy clouds tinged with soft pinks and purples against a blue sky.

Anniversary in Playa del Carmen, Mexico – Kristen + Jason

Playa Del Carmen Anniversary Portraits by Monica Lopez Photography

Kristen and Jason chose to celebrate their anniversary in Playa del Carmen and asked me to tag along for a romantic beach photo shoot to commemorate this wonderful occasion.

The big beach town of Playa del Carmen is located just one hour south of my home city of Cancun. Despite being so close, the two cities have completely different styles. I love the intense blues of the ocean at Cancun’s beaches, but Playa del Carmen’s laid-back style really draws me in whenever I visit.

I have confirmed that Playa Delfines is among Cancun’s top spots for beach portraits with kids!

The water was so blue! On the day I went to photograph the beautiful Silver family, I was blown away by the intense blue of the Caribbean Sea. Then again, the water always looks pretty spectacular here in Cancun. The Silver family was enjoying a well-deserved vacation, and mom Annette wanted some family portraits on the beach to document this special occasion.
