    Yolanda - I truly enjoyed working with Lupe and Agustin. They provided the most beautiful photos from our wedding day in Cancun. They captured every special moment and the slideshow they put together was amazing. I’m so glad to have come across the website of these two photographers in my search. They were so professional, friendly and came up with the most creative photos. My guests loved the photos and enjoyed the company of Lupe and Augustin during the wedding and so did we. Thank you for everything!ReplyCancel

    Harvey Noel - My husband and I were married at Barcelo Maya Palace in the Riviera Maya in March 2015. We searched everywhere to find photographers until we came across this website. Choosing Lupe and Agustin was one of the best decisions we made. They were very professional on the wedding day. Throughout the preparation, ceremony, and reception we barely noticed they were there. For our individual pictures we didn’t have the best weather, but they still turned out perfectly !

    We were both extremely happy with all of the pictures and get many compliments on the quality from friends and family ! They made us feel relaxed and the pictures did a fantastic job of capturing the moment !ReplyCancel

    Dustin Leuning - My wife and I were married at Dreams Riviera Cancun in April of 2015. We wanted to give ourselves plenty of time to plan and prepare for our wedding so our engagement was roughly 17 months. At least 3 of those months were spent looking for the right photographer.

    We are very picky when it comes to photos as I’ve worked in the industry for over 10 years and my wife knows exactly what she wants. From the moment that we discovered Take It! Photo we knew that we had to have them photograph our wedding. Technically speaking, their photos are spot on. Their composition is amazing and they find unique ways to incorporate the beauty in their surroundings. Even more importantly however, they see things differently and capture photos that bring you back to the moment they were taken. That is exactly what we were looking for.

    Fast forward 6 months or so from the time that we booked Take It! Photo and our big day finally arrived. Agustin started off by photographing our group of guys as we were getting ready and Lupe was in another room photographing the girls. Looking back at these photos now, they are priceless to us as they really do capture our feelings leading up to our wedding.

    Later on that day the team worked together to help capture the remaining moments of our wedding, including the ceremony, post ceremony and reception. Agustin and Lupe’s styles blend together so wonderfully and we love that we have some pictures of the same event but from two completely different perspectives.

    Less than a month after our wedding we received an email indicating that our proofs were ready. Wow. Of course we were expecting great things, but we could never have imagined how hard it would be to select our photos. They were really all that wonderful. That’s a good problem to have and exactly what we were hoping for.

    If you decide to have Take It! Photo photograph your special day you will not be disappointed. They are a wonderfully talented team that compliment each other very well. Their genuine nature is contagious and they do a magnificent job of capturing all the emotions of your wedding. You could not ask for any more and we would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a destination wedding photographer. If you’re still reading this, stop. Go ahead and email Take It! Photo and confidently cross “find photographer” off your wedding checklist.ReplyCancel

    Lori, Lou and Jenna - Our family beach photo shoot at the Ritz Carlton Cancun Hotel was done by Lupe Arguello in June 2014. Words can not describe this experience and the quality of her work! It was an hour photo shoot around the hotel, their beach club and then the beach itself. We had so much fun and Lupe made us feel so relaxed and comfortable we didn’t even feel like we were being photographed. When we saw the photos, we were breathless! We loved them so much, we bought them all, received a memory stick of all our photos and the most beautiful photo book that Lupe designed and put together for us. I literally cried when I saw it! Lupe has created memories for us that will last a lifetime and she captured the personalities of myself, husband and our 6 year old daughter perfectly! This is a must do if you have ever desired beach photos or if you are having a wedding, vow renewal or any other special event you must use her (and/or her partner). You will have absolutely the best time and the most beautiful pictures ever! Lupe, you are truly an artist and your photography is amazing! The compliments we have received from our family and friends are endless! We are coming back to Cancun in June and hope you are available to take more pictures of us! Lupe, you are the best!ReplyCancel

    Chanti Bernardo Babrah - I could not have been happier with my experience with Take It! Photo! Lupe and Augustin were amazing – friendly, funny, creative, talented, professional – they made me, my husband and all of our family and friends feel so comfortable and they were able to capture all of the happiness and magic of such a special day. Every time I look through the photos, I have a permanent smile on my face because it feels like I am right back in Mexico, reliving one of the happiest days of my life. And I am so excited that I will see them again this May as my friend has just booked them for her wedding! You are truly wonderful, Take It! Photo!:)ReplyCancel

    Kari Fredericks - Just received our pictures from our November wedding and they are stunning. They both made us feel so comfortable and captured some beautiful, natural photos. Looking through the pictures makes me feel like we are truly in the moment! We are forever greatful for Lupe and Agustin!ReplyCancel

    Sabrina Bogosian-Poliseno - Lupe and Agustin are amazing!! My hubby and I got married in August and couldn’t have chosen more perfect photographers to capture our day! We are thrilled with the pictures and can’t stop staring at them! They are so easy to work with and truly know what moments to snap photos of . Thanks again!! XoReplyCancel

    John & Alice Gunther - Choosing Take It! Photo for our wedding on June 7th 2014, was the best decision we made! We did our research on lots of photographers and when we came across their portfolio, we loved their work! We reached out to them right away and within a few hours they responded. Communication was always quick and they did a great job of explaining everything and making you feel comfortable. The hardest part was selecting the photos once we got the proofs. There were soooo many beautiful pictures that it took us quite a while to narrow it down.

    Everyone should spend the extra amount to get the Trash The Dress session! It was worth every penny! They took us to both a private cenote for the under water photos, and to a near by beach that had a rustic boat up on the sand. Our friends & family couldn’t believe the photos! Don’t worry, your clothes don’t get ruined!

    Lupe & Agustin are a young couple who blended right in with our friends. If you didn’t know any better you would have thought they were guests at our wedding. We would use them again in a heartbeat!

    Thank you so much!

    tramPham - I believe in investing in a good photographer since pictures are always gonna be there. I got two with Take it photo. Their packages are affordable, and the pictures are priceless. We got the package with all the photos. During the planning process, Take it always answered my concerns and accommodated our needs. On the wedding date, Lupe helped me and Agustin was with the groomsmen.They helped us with our poses and everything else to get the best photos out of the date. One month after, the pictures came out. AMAZING!!! my husband is still looking at them everyday and he uses our wedding pictures for his computer screen saving AT WORK which he had never done. Everyone texted me to ask where I found Take it and how I knew they were good. From the guests to those who couldnt make it to our wedding, they complemented on our pictures. All of the photos is the good mix of artistic, fun and goofy, which is what we wanted. They told our story 😀

    Pick them or at least email them. Let them know who you are and what you want. You wont regret! When they get a sense of your personality, that shows in the pictures!! If I ever do it again, I am going with Take it!!!ReplyCancel

    AndreaVB - Hiring Take It! Photo (Augustin and Lupe) to capture the magic of our wedding day was one of the best decisions we could have made. From beginning to end, Lupe and Augustin were very sweet and professional and they always took the time to respond to my multiple emails and questions. I met with them a few months before the wedding and explained my “vision” of the wedding day and what kind of pictures I wanted. For the most part though, I gave them the creative freedom to just do their thing and we were very impressed with the results. My husband and I are not used to being professionally photographed (we didn’t do engagement pictures or anything like that), so we are not totally comfortable in front of the camera. Augustin and Lupe really helped us lighten up, they made us laugh and feel very much at ease. The end result was that we ended up with very beautiful, happy, and natural looking pictures. When I finally got my pictures back, I cried tears of joy. The pictures were GORGEOUS and really captured the joyous mood of the whole day.

    I would absolutely, hands down, recommend Take It! Photo to anyone who is looking for fun, modern, and beautiful pictures of their wedding day. Augustin and Lupe were so wonderful to work to work with, and their very reasonable prices don’t hurt either 🙂ReplyCancel

    Kelly Nelson - Lupe & Agustin are the whole package. Such a friendly and fun loving couple with amazing talent. Their photos are beautiful & creative, they are flexible, and the cherry on top is the variety of reasonably priced wedding day packages, especially factoring in that you get the two of them! You will not find a better value. I repeat, you will not. And did I mention, they take incredible photos?

    While the wedding day was a whirlwind, they captured all the great moments and then spending the next day doing the Trash the Dress session, and getting to know them better was so much fun!

    Highly Highly recommend. You will love them and their work.

    Thank you Lupe & Agustin!ReplyCancel

    Liz - One word: Perfect. I honestly could not be happier having had Lupe and Augustine of Take It! Photo with us to capture our wedding day and trash the dress.

    After choosing a destination, photos were a huge priority for my husband and me. We were looking for photographers that captured emotion through film in a creative yet genuine way. Upon finding Take It! Photo’s website, we fell in love with their photos and knew they were the ones.

    Organizing the wedding from Chicago made me a bit nervous at times, but Lupe and Augustine made me feel so comfortable and I knew that I could trust them. They were quick to respond to e-mails and extremely courteous when they could not.

    Upon meeting them the day of the wedding, their personalities were an incredible bonus to the amazing photos I knew they would take. Lupe showed up in my room of 10 ladies having fun getting ready and put us completely at ease, even helping me with my bouquet at one point. They both made us laugh and quickly feel at ease in front of the camera (and we’re not picture people!). We wished we could have hung out with them more…and that we spoke Spanish so we didn’t have to make them speak English.

    After receiving our package of photos (and going through them 1 million times), my face hurt from smiling the entire time because the way they captured such true emotion immediately transported me back to that day. I could tell that everything in the package was produced with care which made it all that much more special.

    My only regret is that I can’t fly to Cancun right now just to give them a huge hug for being such an important part of our dream wedding. JReplyCancel

    lawrencekerman - On your wedding day, you kind of want everything to be “just right”. As perfection is impossible 😉 Having Take It Photo handle our photography was a wise move on my wife’s behalf. We specified that we wanted people captured in a natural state, rather than a bunch of posed pictures. Lupe and Augustine did just that. We wound up with so many amazing photos of our loved ones laughing, dancing, and playing around. When it came to the photo shoot of our wedding party, they had a lot of really cool and original ideas. Our wedding photos are way cooler than anyone else’s I have seen thus far B)

    I would also highly recommend the Trash the Dress. They came and picked us up the next day and drove us out to this amazing secluded beach/ cenote/ jungle. We had so much fun! We played in the ocean. Laid in the forest and kissed under water with tiny fish swimming around us. We were blown away by the pics when the arrived in Canada. Our friends and family kept saying that, “they looked like something out of a fairytale!”

    The team at Take It Photo are a beautiful, young, hip couple and I feel truly blessed to have had them take care of preserving our wedding memories. Thanks again guys! You are true masters of your trade.ReplyCancel

    Kaity Cooper - My partner and I got married in Playa del Carmen November 2013. As a same sex couple, we were very nervous about selecting a photographer. We had a hard enough time finding a resort that was ok with our wedding. We knew the photographer would be with us all day, and we wanted to make sure they would be able to put us as ease. My partner and I are very shy and super awkward around a camera. After months of combing through reviews and portfolios we decided to hire Take It! I have to say this was probably the best decision we made in our whole year of wedding planning. So let me tell you about Lupe and Agustin.

    The Photographers

    Where to begin… After spending two days with Lupe and Agustin I am convinced they could put anyone at ease. Spending time with them was like spending time with friends; friends whose job it is to make you feel beautiful and taken care of. Lupe is kind and bubbly and extremely artistic. Agustin is hilarious and creative and has an eye for very unique photos. He even got in the water with an underwater camera for our Trash the Dress session. These two fit so well with our wedding party. So many guests came up to me after to say how much they liked Lupe and Agustin. And that was before they saw the photos!

    The Photos

    But I’m sure everyone is interested in the photos. We received them yesterday and were just blown away. Lupe and Agustin captured vibrant colours, breathtaking scenery, artistic details and, most importantly, precious moments between my partner and I. We looked so natural and happy in all the photos. You could never tell that we are shy. My friends have commented that we could be models. Imagine that! The best thing about these two is they are both incredible photographers with slightly different approaches. The result is a series of photos from different angles and perspectives. Our package came with 200 photos. That seems like a lot, but it took us 3 weeks to make our choices because all the photos were so good! I can’t say enough how much I love them!

    The Recommendation

    I know this review has been gushing, but seriously, these photographers are worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend Lupe and Agustin to anyone. If you want photos that are gorgeous and unique these are your photographers. Lupe and Agustin, thank you for capturing the precious moments between me and Kiera so we can remember them forever. You are the best!

    Amanda Morie - Creative, natural and fun loving photographers!!!
    Jorge and I are both artistic people. Jorge loves photography and I am a professional artist. Jorge and I organized and designed our wedding. Our theme for our wedding was “art” so I hand painted and designed all of our save the dates, invites, menus, table numbers, favors, programs, wedding hangers, cake topper etc on canvas. Jorge designed our cake, made all the wooden easels for the canvases and helped designed the centerpieces and colors of the wedding. So for us having a wedding photographer that captured details, little moments in a natural and glamorous way was really important. We wanted a photographer that would capture who we are, our relationship and our love. This was extremely important.

    We literally looked days on end for a photographer that caught our attention, that we think would tell our story the best. After countless hours of looking we found Take it Photo here on Best Destination Weddings. It was late in the night and Jorge was getting tired of looking but when I showed him their website he instantly lit up and said hire them. I looked at him and yes ok Im going to send them an email right now. Not only did they reply within hours but they were friendly and fun loving. We both knew in our hearts that they were the ones

    Jorge and I and our guests were staying at The Grand Mayan and had our ceremony half an hour away in PDC in the main Catholic Church on 5th Avenue. We then had a parade that was about 30 mins long to our reception at El Taj Oceanfront and Beachside. Not only did Lupe and Agustin show up early but they were energenic and excited to be there. It instantly felt like they were long time friends. Agustin stayed with Jorge in the morning while he was getting ready and Lupe spent the time with me and came with my family and I in the car to the church. We were late getting to the church because of traffic and when we arrived to PDC the street where the church was located on was closed by the police so Lupe talked to them and tried to get us through even though it was closed. Unfortunately we could get through and I had to walk a few blocks in the hard wind and light rain but Lupe calmed me down and assured us that it would be ok. SHE IS AWESOME! Couldnt thank her enough.

    After the ceremony the wind was still strong but the rain went away and we took family photos. Lupe and Agustin interacted with the family great and really tried to get them involved to make it a fun experience for everyone including the shy babies. After that Jorge and I went with them to take some one on one photos and we had a blast. Jorge and I are huge animal lovers and it seemed like everywhere we went there was dogs following us. so cute. Lupe and Agustin captured these moments great.

    Just before the reception we met all the guests and our mariachi band back at the church on 5th and started our parade to our reception down on 5th. We got permission from the city police to hand out tequila and dance our way down the streets. It was the highlight of our day. Not only were our guest so excited for the music and the drinks but so were the by standers who came and joined us and the resturaunts who stopped us and gave us shots and drinks to congratulate us. Since the parade was really fast moving and high energy, Lupe and Agustin had to move around a lot and keep up. They did a great job of taking action photos. Its great to have two photographers in moments like this so that nothing is missed

    At our reception they mingled with guests, took some great photos of the location, of the people and of the night. They had their own lighting and made the night photos really stand out. They were just amazing and all of our guests loved them. Almost everyone came up to us and told us how great they were and how they couldnt wait to see the photos. We are so happy to have had them for the day and for our trash the dress. I highly recommend them to anyone. Their packages are great (we got the digital package), the photos are outstanding and natural and they are truly amazing people inside and out. Don’t regret not hiring them for your special occasion!ReplyCancel

    alexawedding - My now husband and I had our destination wedding on October, 10 at the beach in Cancun Mexico.Our wedding pictures were something that we really wanted to be perfect, and we didn´t get wrong when we decided to go ahead with Take it Photo as our photographers.The photos were so much better than I thought! They came out amazing, beautiful colors, and all of them are candid shots ! No one posed photo…something that I do not like at all. We got a lot of fun working with them, and even more with the TTD session,.They are two photographers, Lupe and Agustin , which is great, since the girl stay with the bride all the time during the getting ready and the boy with the groom , this means you will not have a guy in your room during the getting ready and you an your bridesmaid can be relax and change anywhere in the room ! This was a very important thing for me.From the moment they arrived they were taking photos to everything around us, and covering all details, you don´t need to be worry about nothing. During the ceremony they weren’t invasive at all, and they organize very fast and easy to the group for the group photo.Everything was great, we highly recommend them, they are GREAT ! The memories they captured will forever be cherished! 😀 We loved working with you guys! And can’t thank you enough for spending the day with us! Please let us know when you are coming to our city, we have bunch of friends wanting a photo session with you!ReplyCancel

    ChaLau - Augustin and Lupe photographed my wedding in Oct. After searching for months for a photographer, and reading several reviews, I decided to go with Take It. I am so glad I did. Augustin and Lupe were so nice, and so easy to work with. The were also unobtrusive during the ceremony and still got great photos! No one even knew they were there. While in the process of planning for my wedding, lupe who was a great help.
    All of my questions, concerns, requests were answered within minutes/hours which was a huge plus considering how stressful wedding planning can be.
    The photos turned out fabulous and I would highly recommend them to other brides!!!!!.ReplyCancel

Take it photo studio photographers were amazing they were both friendly fun and so easy to work with. We had a trash the dress shoot with them as we’ll and it was so much fun. They definitely exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend them to anyone interested in having a stress free photographer experience.

They captured every moment of our day perfectly and they bring back the happiest of memories.

    Sarah - Pros: Quick email communication, approachable, creative, fun, punctual, flexible, fair price, organized, friendly, WONDERFUL

    My husband & I wanted to ensure that we did not get stuck with “stock” resort photographers, ones that perhaps didnt care or perhaps were not creative…so we browsed multiple sites and found TAKE IT!, read their reviews and browsed through their photo galleries. WE WERE SOLD!

    The email communication back and forth from this awesome duo was speedy, light-hearted, informative and professional. We did not feel worried in the slightest bit meeting them in person for the first time on our wedding day.

    They had excellent ideas for candid shots, took the prerequisite family & group shots and allowed us and our wedding party the flexibility in coming up with our own ideas as well!

    Highlight for my husband and I was the TTD (trash the dress) which we ended up doing in a small town between Cancun & Playa del Carmen, called Puerto Morelas. We had an absolute blast with the rustic back-drop, blue waters, white sandy beaches & even mexican wrestling masks!

    I cannot express to you all enough how pleased we are with this wicked duo and to urge you to at least consider booking them for your big day!

    kisekae - Lupe and Agustin were the photographers for our wedding 26 April 2012 at the Barcelo Maya. I cannot say enough about how wonderful they were from beginning to end.

    I stumbled across their name and instantly fell in love with their style and approach to wedding photography. Their prices are unbeatable and I promise that you will not sacrifice quality. They were with us from 1130am until 11pm which meant so much to us to have photo’s taken throughout every moment of our day. They made our guests feel comfortable and we had so much fun doing our photoshoot with them.

    We did a trash the dress session where Lupe was even so amazing as to lend her shirt to my husband who realised last minute that he forgot his! It was so funny, and she was so great about the whole thing, even putting on his bright orange t-shirt in place of hers. I don’t know what we would have done without them! Life savers.

    I couldn’t believe it when they emailed me 2 weeks after my wedding date to say that the photo’s were all edited and ready to go! It was such a nice surprise, and from friends that have waited months for their photo’s, I couldn’t have been more impressed.

    Their pictures are extremely creative and unique. They aren’t too intrusive with taking photo’s which was important to my fiance, but they still captured truly amazing pictures.

    I really can’t recommend these two enough. You will not be disappointed!

    Pros: Amazing value, creative shots, natural style, fun to work with
    Cons: noneReplyCancel

    MilAustralian - A wedding to pure rock n roll, happiness and originality

    Pros: Original, cheap, excellent settings and planes, very good treatment with the client and amusement
    Cons: noni

    I came to Mexico with my fiance Nick, and the only thing that we were lacking to have everything ready for the wedding, was the photography.

    The same day that we come, they recommended to us to speak with several, and we were lucky to have in the list these two Argentinians, who easily obtained our approval.

    They were very fast understanding our desire and could suggest really brilliant ideas to us.

    We amuse ourselves very much and they were very professional. Always mixing the humor, the naturalness and the commitment.

    Really I hope that future brides find them and could register forever such an important moment in the life, since it is a wedding, together to Lupe and Agustín.

    Thank you very much, Nick & I are going to be eternally gratefulReplyCancel

    valsalerno - Pros: Artistic, Great style, Beautiful pics, Value, Fun, Professionalism,
    Cons: None

    We got married at the Barcelo Maya Palace in February. I found Take It! from an online forum and their pictures truly stood out from the rest of the portfolio’s we had seen. Their pictures told a story and were very artistic.

    In a nutshell: Lupe and Agustin are amazing photographers with great artistic flair. Our wedding day and TTD photographs are absolutely stunning and I could not be happier with Take It!

    Lupe and Agustin were extremely responsive and quick to respond and worked with me on customizing a package to best fit our needs. Their packages are unique in that you end up paying for the number of pictures you get, not necessarily for the time they spent on your wedding day. This meant they were with us from the time we started getting ready until the end of the reception.

    They arrived early on my wedding day and were absolutely fantastic to work with. Lupe even saved my hair, by translating to my hair dresser who did not speak a word of English, in order to get me the style I wanted.

    We had an absolute blast 2 days later for the TTD. They took us to several locations so we had a ton of pictures to pick from. The cenote shots came out amazing. Besides having the pictures to remember, it was just a fantastic experience we will remember in our hearts forever.ReplyCancel

    Julia - Thank you Agustin and Lupe for the great pictures!!

    After several weeks of intensive searching for a wedding photographer we choose Take It Photo. And what a wonderful choice it was!.

    We communicated via e-mail, of course. It was smooth from start to finish. Their responses to all our questions were quick and informative. We met Agustin and Lupe on the day of our magical wedding at Grand Palladium on January 9, 2011. They were even better in person: nice, cordial and ready to work. They were with us from the start to the end of our wedding day. From beginning to end they captured all the magical moments of our special day. We highly recommend Take It Photo to anyone in the Mayan Riviera needing beautiful photography. Agustin and Lupe is a pleasure to work with and you get an amazing value for your money.

    Chelley - Pros: Good value for money, quick turnaround, great photographic style, fun, friendly, good communication, flexible
    Cons: None!

    We live in Playa del Carmen and got married in Tulum in May. Hubby is a photographer so we didn’t want to pay the extortionate prices of most of the photographers here and also wanted to edit the photos ourselves. I met Lupe and Agustin by chance when they were photographing another wedding where I work. They were great at communicating with us throughout and were very flexible to what we wanted from our day.

    The day of the wedding they arrived bright and early at 8am to take photos of everyone arriving and the getting ready photos. We had a long day with a morning and evening ceremonies but they were still there until about 9pm to make sure they caught the best of the day!

    Lupe is very creative in her photos, using mirrors and windows for reflections and Agustin takes some great candid photos. Apart from the main photos they caught some great images of the little things that really help when you’re looking back at the day as it flies by so quickly! During the day they were really fun and enthusiastic and our guests commented on how friendly they were. I’m not very comfortable in front of the camera but they made it very easy for us with lots of direction.

    We went to pick up the DVDs with all the photos three days after the wedding, we had only asked for (and paid for) the RAW original images but Lupe also gave us a CD with all the images edited by herself, a lovely added touch!

    We were really happy with the quality of the images. They have a great and unique vision and style. We now have some really lovely images to remember a fantastic day.

    We would definitely recommend Take It Foto for your wedding!ReplyCancel

    njules33 - Pros: AMAZING pics, Cost, duration, friendly, flexible, fun, quick leadtime, communication, … everything!
    Cons: I seriously can’t think of one negative thing to say

    We got married on 3/3/2011 at Barcelo Maya and we used Take it! as our photographers… they were incredible to work with and really nice people, great with communication, not intrusive at all, and of course the pictures came out awesome. They are two photographers (one male, one female which is perfect) and they stay with you for the whole day – they don’t charge hourly – and they gave us plenty of pictures and their prices are totally reasonable.

    We weren’t even planning on doing a trash the dress, but we went for it and it was so fun and the pics are awesome!

    We didn’t want an album or any prints, just digital and they were able to do that. They were also able to get us all of the pics prior to our departure which was great.

    You can just email them and they’ll send you their list of packages, prices, etc.

    We highly recommend them – can’t say enough good things about them, all of our guests loved them too.ReplyCancel

    Stephanie - Pros: Reasonable price, great value, fast turn around, fun, great communication, easy to work with

    My sister and I had made a trip to Cancun back in January 2010 and stayed at the Gran Melia hotel. While we were there we met the 2 resort photographers (Lupe Arguello and Agustin Bocci of Take It Foto), http://www.fototakeit.com ) who are a couple from Argentina, graduated from art school and had been in Mexico for a few months working as resort photographers at the Gran Melia. We had them do a mini photo shoot as gifts for our parents and we loved their work!

    I contacted Lupe to see if they were available to shoot our wedding in May 2010 at the Barcelo Maya Palace in Riviera Maya and booked them as soon as they said yes! Communication and planning with them via email prior to the wedding was easy. All emails were responded to within a day and they speak and write in English very well. We paid for them to stay at the resorts for 2 nights (day before the wedding and night of the wedding) and also paid for their transportation from Cancun to the resort.

    I was so glad they arrived the day before the wedding. Lupe and Agustin did a great job scouting out all the perfect locations to take photos around the resort the day before the wedding, which was great and made things go seamlessly on our wedding day.

    As we had scheduled via email in advance, the photographers arrived in our rooms around 1:30 to take photos of us getting ready. It was really nice to have a team of 2 photographers (one male and one female) since one worked with the girls and one with the guys before the ceremony. Lupe stayed with us and took photos of us on the way to the ceremony, which was nice- love the photos of us driving over to the gazebo on the golf cart. Agustin went with the guys to the gazebo early and took photos of the setup and guests.

    The photos they took during the ceremony were amazing. They were sure to catch all the perfect moments and the beautiful ocean in the background. They were there to shoot the champagne toast after the ceremony, took group photos, had our private couples shoot and took pictures throughout the reception. All in all they were there taking photos non-stop from 1:30-10:30pm that day. They were great to work with, very professional and had great ideas for photos. Everything turned out beautifully. We received more than 300 photos (all digital since we didn’t want prints) with our package.

    The package didn’t cover any photo retouching, but that was fine by me. The next afternoon, we met with them and reviewed the slideshow DVD that was set to some nice Spanish music. I got a copy of the DVD with the photos on it and paid the photographers in cash. They made duplicate DVDs of both the slideshow and photos (in both high and low resolution) and they dropped those off at the Palace Front desk that night for us.

    I am so happy we chose them- they were cheaper than the resort photographer, the package included more photos for the price, and the photos were better quality than those I have seen from the resort photographer. Would definitely recommend them and use them again!!

    Mel & Marco - We had our wedding in Cancun this June and we finally
    hired Lupe & Agustin from Take it after talk with a lot of others photographers.
    They are a nice and young couple .

    Melissa - Pros: enthusiastic, kind, good value, quick turnaround, fun
    Cons: none

    We LOVE Lupe & Agustin! We planned a 10 year vow renewal with our three children and 14 other members of our family. Great photos was one of my top priorities for this wedding and I am so happy we found this lovely couple. Communication leading up to the vacation/event was wonderful. She answered all of my questions quickly and enthusiastically, which was comforting. We wanted to do an additional family portrait sitting earlier in the week and she was great with the kids and we ended up with some fantastic images.

    Our ceremony was simple and sweet and they captured everything. I love, love, love her photoshopping skills! Some of our favorite photos are the ones where she changed the coloring and added her own artistic flair. They turned out beautiful and we had a tough time deciding on which ones to order.

    We are so happy we bought the book. Lupe did a great job designing the layout and it’s really nice to have it so quickly, especially since I would’ve taken months to get one done on my own.

    In a nutshell, we are thrilled that we found Take It! Photo Studio and would use them again in a heartbeat. My sister is getting married next year in the states and she is seriously considering having Lupe & Agustin fly in to take some great photos! THANK YOU, Take It! Photo. xoxoReplyCancel

    angebea924 - friendly, affordable, & fun
    We are so pleased with our engagement photo session and pictures. We didn’t expect to have so many great photos to choose from and we ended up purchasing more than the minimum requested from us. Thank you so much for a great experience, great photos, & great memories.ReplyCancel

  • May 6, 2012 - 11:00 AM

    Lauren Ishida - Pros: Professional, affordable, talented!
    We booked with Take it photo, because we were trying to find someone to fit our budget. We were MORE than happy with their work!! The pictures turned out beautiful and my coworkers actually commented more than once that we must have spent a fortune on our photographer. They even met with us at another hotel we were staying at for our honeymoon, to show us the pictures, and make sure we had them before we came back to Vancouver.
    Don’t hesitate to book these great photographers.ReplyCancel

    Even with the rain that I had on my wedding day in Riviera Maya, Lupe and Agustin made sure we had great photos to choose from. Picture speaks for itself! Thank you again!

    Cons: noneReplyCancel

    cityplace1111 - We live in Toronto, Canada and got married at Playa Palace resort in Playa del Carmen. We literally arrived in Mexico 1 day before our wedding so we had to make sure most of the preparation was done before we arrived.

    Agustin was prompt in replying to our emails and was very clear as to what was needed for him to take great picture. Sure enough, he arrived on time and took fantastic pictures.

    If you are looking for picture style that are unique and great value, they are it. Just like any other reviews in this forum, I recommend Take It Foto.

    Great value and uniqueReplyCancel
