TESTIMONIALS | PlayaWeddings Photo and Video


Hello…..the pictures turned out absolutely stunning!  You truly captured our day and included everything I had hoped for and more.

I spent countless hours searching the internet, watching videos, looking at pictures, & reading reviews for the perfect photographer and videographer.  When I came across your site, I instantly knew you were the ones I wanted for my wedding day.   Your photos tell a story (our story) and take me back to that moment in time where all my senses come alive.  Thank you for everything.  Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures & video!

We can never say “thank-you” enough! You guys are complete rockstars and we will be sure to recommend you to anyone who is wanting to get married in the Riviera area.

We got married on December 16th, 2013 at the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya and the first thing I did when booking

our wedding package with the resort was immediately search for a video/photo crew to cover our special day. We purchased a combo wedding videography/photography package from PW and as a surprise for my husband, I threw in a boudoir session for the morning of the wedding! The crew itself is amazing – Rachel, Paul and their team are all super professionals and pros. They also worked great with our resort and their mastery of both the Spanish and English languages came in handy for us too since we are not fluent spanish speakers! The ladies made me feel super comfortable during my boudoir shoot, and the crew really felt like part of our wedding. Everyone we’ve showed our photos and videos has remarked on how beautiful they are – our wedding highlight video itself looks like the trailer for a blockbuster movie! Congrats to Rachel and Paul for their wicked high rating on here – it’s well-deserved.

My husband and I got married at Grand Coral Beach Club in Playa del Carmen and there’s no way we could

have chosen a better photography/ video team! Rachel, Paul and their team were wonderful to work with on what can be a very stressful day, and made it stress free. We absolutely love all of our pictures and our highlight video and full length video (nearly an hour long!) allowed us to relive our amazing day, which we will be forever grateful for. If you are planning a wedding in the Riviera Maya we 110% recommend PlayaWeddings to truly make YOUR special day that much more magical and memorable 🙂

We would recommend Playaweddings, no questions asked. They are just wonderful people, and were made to do what they do 🙂

My husband and I were not terribly picky on most things related to our wedding but we knew that if there was anything we wanted to splurge on it would be our pictures and video for the day. I spent a good couple months looking for just the right photographer/videographer. I went through Playaweddings galleries and watched (and cried through) their videos, and knew they would be for us.It was quite scary picking a photographer that we had never met, and would not meet till our wedding day…but they were so incredibly professional and personable through the many emails I had sent them.Come the wedding day I was blown away by what they were doing, and we didn’t even need to see the pictures to know they would be amazing. Rachel is very passionate about what she does, and it comes through in every shot. Also, the rest of the team (we had 6 on our day) were so good too! We were just over the moon when we received our “teasers”, and ecstatic once we had all or photos and video. It was worth the wait and worth every penny.We did the photobooth at our reception and it was very well received! Everyone had so much fun and got their silly pictures right away from that.

We received our photos and were blown away!! I’ve never felt more beautiful than I did in those photos. They are absolutely breathtaking and the compliments I get on them are wonderful. Everyone loves them!

Thank you Playaweddings for such an amazing keepsake that we can cherish forever!!

My husband and I recently got married at the Gran Porto Real in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We almost went with the resort photographers but they just didn’t have that “spark” we were looking for. I researched a ton of Playa del Carmen photographers and came across Playaweddings. Their photos were perfect and they seemed to capture everything we wanted.

They were extremely easy to work with and their payment system was a breeze. They showed up on time and were ridiculously friendly and light-hearted and such a blast to have at our wedding. You can tell they absolutely love what they do.

I heard recently on the radio that 80% of people are unhappy with their wedding photos — I was SHOCKED yet so relieved to be part of that 20% who LOVES their wedding photos!!!!

In picking a destination wedding I was care free about the details – I didn’t care too much about what kind of flowers I had or what people wore. The ONE thing I was extremely adamant about was the photography. I searched every site out there and came back to Playa Weddings and it was HANDS DOWN the best decision we made!!

I am a graphic designer and love a great photo. One that tells a story yet evokes emotion. Rachel brought all of that for us and then some — her point of view is incredible and those who weren’t able to attend our wedding in Tulum, said it felt like they were there with us. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our photos — INCREDIBLE, AMAZING, WONDERFUL JOB!!!

Don’t be a statistic! I would use Playa Weddings again in a heartbeat!!!!!!!!!!

As you know both Sara and I are in hospitality and the #1 thing I always say is “be hospitable”, you and your team were absolutely hospitable and gracious and caring and we absolutely appreciate you and your efforts. 

First and foremost want to be begin by saying thank you so extremely much.

Truth be told when Sara presented the prices of your services to me I instantly said no and then the more I thought about it said of course we will move forward.

As I sit here and again look at the pictures I can with confidence say selecting you and your team was the best thing we did. We could not have asked for anything more perfect than what you provided us, truly exceptional work.

These pictures will be shared with for many years and generations to come and again truly couldn’t have asked for anything better, just spot on, extremely well done.

Happy wife = happy life, right J?? Well my dear Sara couldn’t be happier and when she at her happiest I am also so again thank you and thank you to your team for being so thorough and professional and hospitable throughout this process.

There is no way that my husband and I could possibly express our experience with playaweddings, except to say what an ABSOLUTE blast we had with Rachel Paul, and Rodrigo during our wedding week!

From our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and trash the dress, this company was there for every moment, capturing images that i know will be nothing short of spectacular. If you are looking for a talented, creative, professional, fun, and HARD-WORKING photography/videography team, look no further than playaweddings!
