Family Beach Portraits at Playa Delfines, Cancun, Mexico – The Hsiung’s

I have confirmed that Playa Delfines is among Cancun’s top spots for beach portraits with kids! Located at Kilometer 18 of the Cancun Hotel Zone, Playa Delfines (“Dolphin Beach”) has a playground, a colorful lifeguard stand to climb, and a lookout point with some of Cancun’s most unbelievable ocean views. With so much to see and explore, it’s no wonder the Hsiung family had so much fun during our Cancun family beach portrait session!

Westin Lagunamar Family Portraits – The Cho’s

Three generations came together for this magical Westin Lagunamar Family Portraits in Cancun.

Sandos Caracol Destination Wedding – Milena + Lenin

Sandos Caracol Destination Wedding by Monica Lopez Photography

Last Thursday I was invited to photograph a Sandos Caracol Destination Wedding in beautiful Playa del Carmen!

Milena is a young, gorgeous canadian who fate brought her to stumble into a latino boy in one of her travels. Len is a talented hairstylist (he actually wanted to do Milena’s hair on this day, but decided to wait and see each other at the aisle!) who grew up in Cancun, and they have been together for six years! A bilingual couple who both love Mexico very much and of course couldn’t think of a better place for their wedding.
