Sujita & Andy

So planning a destination wedding can be super stressful purely because majority of your communication with your Wedding Coordinator/Vendors is via email and photos. We found Luz Maria through Google, read a bunch of reviews and decided to go with her because her portfolio looked amazing. She was super easy to communicate with and made this a less stressful and enjoyable experience for me and my husband. She was on time, showed up at the venue without any hitch. We did have a delay with our wedding agenda but that was not Luz's fault. She was flexible and stayed longer than the original ask thanks to this delay. The photos turned out absolutely amazing!! They were super colorful, vibrant and she was able to capture all the special moments for our wedding. I would recommend her to anyone in Cancun!!


Tabitha & Ben

Luz Maria was fantastic to work with. She was both professional and friendly, allowing us to feel comfortable and uninhibited. Our final images are breathtaking and we could not be happier. Unique and personal; they truly capture the beauty and joy of our wonderful day.


Julie Bowdrey | The Hyatt Zilara

We first met Luz Maria four years ago whilst on vacation in Cancun. In July 2014 we renewed our wedding vows at The Hyatt Zilara (formally The Royal). She managed to capture every fun filled moment of the day. Our Photographs were amazing, Truly could not have asked for any more in a photographer. My friend is being married in Las Vegas in June 2015 and we are travelling with them and then onto Cancun where they have booked Luz Maria for their on the beach wedding photographs. Luz Maria, you are no longer my photographer, You are a close family friend, Until we meet again Next year!

Tania & Jason | Grand Sirenis

I was fortunate enough to find a referral for Luz Maria Avila photography on the Best Destination Wedding forum. I went through her website and instantly fell in love with her style of photography and pictures. The emotions I felt through her pictures was exactly what I was looking for and I was definitely not disappointed. She was also very considerate, understanding and patient as I was so nervous booking someone halfway across the world. She was very quick to reply to emails, sometimes answering just minutes after. Her honesty and hard work is to be commended.


Maria Elena | Cancun
