Mexico Wedding Photographer


Hello my name is Victor Herrera, I am a Mexican wedding photographer based in Riviera Maya. I have lived here for 18 years and I have shot many weddings all around Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Holbox all the Riviera Maya. I have also shot weddings all around Mexico and all around the world. Traveling is a passion of mine!




I know first hand just how stressful organizing a wedding can be, but it can be even more stressful organizing a wedding outside of your comfort zone, a destination wedding. Here are a few tips that will help you organize your wedding, making it romantic, unique and creative!

Vendor fee

1.- Vendor Fee in the hotel areas, vendors, in hopes of getting all of the business practically force you into taking the hotel’s offers. However, if you choose a different provider for any services that the hotel offers, they charge you an unjust and exaggerated vendor fee. Here is a list of hotels that do not charge you for a vendor fee. Click Here. I have worked 18 years around the Riviera Maya area, so I know the best vendors around this area, and the most economical packages that the hotels offer, like florists, Dj’s, Bands, makeup artists, catering services, and the most important part, the wedding photographer, wedding planner and wedding decorator.



Now, imagine having to pay a vendor fee for each one of these, therefore, making the cost of your wedding higher. For example, something so important like decorating your wedding, the hotel would put whatever they have in stock into this very important day, therefore, making it like any other wedding they have had, not reflecting your creativity and even more so your personality. Knowing all of this you will be able to talk with the hotel and make them know that you do not want to pay for these outrageous things, and if they say otherwise, the best option would be to have your wedding somewhere else.

3.- Wedding photography. I know that a good destination wedding isn’t cheap, also that it is very time consuming, but at the end of the day the most important piece out of all of this, will be your wedding photos. Therefore, your wedding photographer must be someone you trust 100%. Someone who has the sensitivity to capture perfect moments, emotions, details, and creative photos that reflect the environment of that day. When you see your photos, you will be surprised by the touch of detail, the moments you didn’t expect us to get and the unforgettable photos that will be shared through generations to come. Surely you will want to share these photos with your future kids, friends, family, and people that weren’t able to make it. Therefore you cannot leave this up to someone who doesn’t have experience. It would be hard to imagine a photographer that photographs more than 30 weddings a month at the same hotel, and expect creativity. For example, I on the other hand, do not photograph more than 30 wedding’s a year so I can make sure I invest my time in new ideas, picking new places to create amazing photos. This is a long process, but I do it, for the purpose of having a higher quality shoot with my clients. This has helped me out a ton, by being recognized as one of the top 20 best wedding photographers in the world (According to ISWP). This has given me the privilage of being an ambassador of the FUJIFILM brand.
