The Riviera Maya, for photographers and brides, is a dream come true. This spectacular area in Mexico is known for its Mayan ruins, beautiful underground caves and rivers (called cenotes), endless beaches, and top notch hotels. The Rivera Maya, for a beach- and adventure-lovers, is one of the best places to get married in Mexico. The most famous destinations in the Rivera Maya are Playa del Carmen, Cancun, Cozumel, Puerto Aventuras, Akumal and Tulum. It’s just more than 100km long. Wedding photography opportunities in the Rivera Maya abound, since there are so many gorgeous places to shoot. The jungle runs right into the ocean, so it’s really a tropical paradise.
To get married in the Rivera Maya, you’ll need to be there 3 days before your legal ceremony (which must take place in a judge’s office – but even that is worth photographing!). Later on you can have a spiritual or religious ceremony. The legal requirements include a blood test.
On of the best things about Riviera Maya is that you can get there pretty easily. Most folks just fly into the Cancun International Airport or the newly built Tulum terminal. From there you can rent a car or take a van to whereever your final destination may be. If you’re getting married on Cozumel, you can fly direct there, or take a ferry across from the mainland.
Wedding photography in Rivera Maya would be wholly incomplete without a trash the dress photography session in a cenote. There are a zillion options, thankfully. Over the years I’ve shot here, I’ve discovered a number of really cool cenote parks that are not super busy, have really great sink holes, and won’t charge you hundreds of dollars in admission fees simply because you have a wedding dress on.
