Ixtapa wedding photographer
Weddings in Ixtapa, on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, have a number of advantages. Itxtapa’s weather is relatively steady and mild, the area is easy to get to, and there are thousands of hotel rooms to choose from when it comes to finding a place to house your guests. For this reason alone, Ixtapa is a good place to come, particularly if you are having a larger wedding in the autumn months (when the hurricane season makes Atlantic marriage a little risky). New regulations in the last decade have made it super easy for wedding photographers to come from abroad to shoot here.
Ixtapa was developed in the early 1970s as one of the first tourist resort areas in Mexico, along with Cancun. It was basically built for tourism, which means the logistics of planning a destination wedding there are about as easy as they get. It’s super convenient: fly into the international airport and take a shuttle to town. Ixtapa is built up, so you can pick and choose between vendors to make your marriage day exactly what you have envisioned.
If you’re looking for information about our wedding photography packages, please send an email for pricing, check out this bridal resource page, and browse our portfolio of pictures.
