Tulum Wedding Photographer

Tulum is the hot spot. As a wedding photographer, it’s a real joy to work here. It is a boho-chic beach town that integrates perfectly with the ecological philosophy of the region. There are excellent restaurants, chill-out bars, and genuine beach hotelsnot to mention the long beaches of crystal clear water. It’s simply incredible. Please take a look at the best weddings I have shot in the Tulum area. Right below, you will find links to each particular wedding. I hope you like it!

I would absolutely recommend hiring Adrian to shoot your wedding or event. He is very professional and communicative. He is also insanely talented. If you are looking for editorial level wedding photos then Adrian is your man.

~ Traditional Mayan weddings ~

If you are looking forward to a truly different wedding, it is best to go for a traditional Mayan ceremony. It is a wedding officiated by a shaman, who will guide you through a ritual with strong nature connections. Mayan traditions are entirely different from what we are used to; they connect the couple spiritually with Mother Earth and focus mainly on their relationship’s emotional side. They are full of symbols related to the Mayan gods and typical music of this culture: drums, bells, flutes, snails… As a Tulum wedding photographer, I have worked at many Mayan weddings, and I love them! Zorba Tulum is a good venue for that. Below you can find a selection of my favorite ones.

~ Palapa-style weddings ~

One of the characteristic features of Tulum is its architectural design. The place is known for its ecological and environmentally friendly constructions. Sometimes we can find cabins made entirely of wood and interwoven palm leaves, and other times, modern combinations with concrete. The palapa is a traditional Mayan roof made of wood and palm leaves; it is a distinctive sign of its architecture, and it is the most used material of construction in the area. Casa Palapa is a good example; it is fantastic, comfortable and very connected with nature. Without a doubt, this type of architecture makes wedding pictures out of this world. This is the photographer’s paradise!

~ Boho-style wedding venues ~

The Tulum style is already known worldwide, and the entire beach area harmonizes with the jungle. Hotels and restaurants all share a kind that makes us not feel dissonances. However, it is worth highlighting some remarkable places. Lately, sculptural works of art are being introduced, which blend very well with the general environment. It seems that the sites were competing to be the most original and surprising! Selina Hotel and Akiin Beach Club, are great places. Tulum is continuously evolving, and new places appear every day. Doing wedding photography here is terrific! Here you can see the most exciting venues for weddings I have photographed.

~ Small weddings on the beach ~

Being a coastal area, all the weddings that take place in Tulum are held on the beach. The vast majority are settled on the white sand, just a few meters from the waves crashing. Usually, these are weddings with few guests, between 30 and 80 people. Usually, the bride and groom stand under an arch specially decorated with flowers, and the guests sit on wooden chairs in rows. El Chiringuito and Mahayana Tulum are recommended for small weddings. But the options are endless! Sometimes the guests stand up and form a circle around the couple. The good thing about being on an open beach is that we can let our imagination fly and try new possibilities. As a wedding photographer, I am very used to it since it is my specialty field. Below you can find some examples.

~ Best wedding hotels in Tulum ~

Tulum has lots of small hotels and houses perfect for celebrating intimate weddings. There are also various price ranges, from the most modest to extreme luxury, always respecting the boho style concept. Small hotels have cozy cabins and larger restaurant areas, where the wedding guests and the bride and groom can accommodate. The villas are also an excellent option since you can enjoy greater privacy by renting the entire property. As a photographer, I recommend choosing a venue with characteristic decoration and a particular design that makes the difference. Azulik and Casa Malca are good examples. Below you will find selected photoshoots of the most spectacular venues.
