How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been a photographer since 2012, and although I’ve attended a lot of workshops and a lot more online, there is always something new to learn! I love my job because photography has been my ticket to see the world in a different perspective, to meet wonderful people, to experience a roller coaster of emotions, to be a witness of the most beautiful moments a person could have – it is just so rewarding!

What is your photography style?
My style is clean, romantic and real. You won’t see a lot of dramatic, intriguing images, because my visual aesthetic is “less is more”. I prefer soft, neutral tones, over saturated colors one will find a lot in Caribbean photos – I think this clean look does set me apart from the rest.

How many hours do you recommend for photo?
My most booked wedding package is 6 Hours. This one covers almost everything from getting ready up to a little bit of dancing.

Are the hours continuous or can they be split?
Coverage for portraits and weddings is continuous.

What kind of photography packages do you offer?
Packages and pricing vary depending on the number of hours for your event or photo shoot. For Weddings, I offer from 4 to 8 hours of coverage, and Portrait Sessions start at 30 minutes. You will receive an online gallery where you will be able to download the number of images on your package. Pricing quotes can be requested on Contact, and I will respond as soon as possible.

I don’t know which package I need. Can you help me?
Of course! The first thing I will need to know is the itinerary of your event, with the schedule for the ceremony, reception, dinner, first dance… even down to the cake cutting. In certain cases, I will also need the location plan for your photo shoot. With this information, I can get a better idea of which package best suits your needs so that we don’t run out of time and you won’t have to spend extra.

What is included in the Online Gallery?
On one beautiful online gallery, you will receive the edited images. These photos can have different effects like black and white or color. You will get the images in High Resolution, ready for printing, and also those same images in web resolution so you can easily share them through e-mail and Facebook. Only the Web Size files have a small Monica Lopez Photography logo to secure copyrights.

Can we have the original files?
That’s a big no-no. No unedited images are released. No exception.

What size are the photos on the Online Gallery?
All of the images are saved in high resolution, meaning that you can print any size up to 16″x20″ without losing the quality of the image.

When will my photos be ready?
mage Editing takes 4 weeks for sessions and 6 weeks for Weddings to complete, depending on the current workload. Please note that all estimated times are approximate, and holidays may delay final turnaround times.

Do you offer printed Canvas or Albums?
Currently, I am not offering printed goods, only digital files.

What will I need to book my date?
For Weddings, a 30% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract are required for booking. For Portraits and other studios, a 100 US retainer is needed to lock down your date in my calendar. Any additional information that helps me to get the job done is also appreciated.

Do you only work in Cancun and the Riviera Maya?
I can go anywhere you need: Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Akumal, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, outside of Mexico… wherever you like!
