Playaweddings Photo+Video Pricing 2017-2018

We bring our commitment to documenting the beauty of life–and a passion for finding poetry in reality–to everything we do.  We are a husband and wife team that has been documenting weddings together for 10 years running, from the mountains of Colorado to the most beautiful beaches in the world!

We met in Denver in 2004, fell in love, and have been making beautiful wedding documentaries together ever since!  We have lived in Mexico together since 2007 and are happy to help you sort out your Riviera Maya wedding details.  (We are not planners, but we know a lot about the local wedding industry!)  So please don’t hesitate to write or call with your thoughts and questions!

Rachel Schrank is an award-winning photographer (recognized by the International Society of Wedding Photographers) and a member of the ISPWP, Wedding and Portrait Photographers International, the Wedding Photo Journalist Association, and is a Getty Images contributor.  Rachel loves to get lost in the moment, to find what is uniquely “you” about your wedding day, and to bring the spirit of your love to light!!!

Paul Schrank, also a Getty Images contributor, puts his heart into every video he makes, with special attention to a the musical chemistry between image and sound that is the secret ingredient in Paul’s quirky-cool signature style.  Add to that an obsession with authentic vintage lenses mixed with the highest quality professional Canon cameras and pro audio gear, and you’ve got a cinematic documentary that’s part cinema verité and part modern romance!

As always, we love chatting about your wedding plans, great or small!  So feel free to submit an inquiry at any time!  If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, get in touch with us.  We are always happy to customize any package to fit your needs and your budget.  We look forward to celebrating with you!!!

Blessings,

Rachel and Paul 🙂
