Del Sol Photography – #TravelForLove

Hola from Del Sol Photography!

Based in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, we’re known for our innovative wedding photography and as the pioneers who started the underwater wedding trend trash the dress.

Matt and Sol were the first photographers to take brides and grooms underwater in this region. Huffington Post calls Del Sol Photography Wedding Trailblazers for our Adam and Eve sessions. We’re proud to have spawned a new style of photographing brides and grooms and a new genre of photography!

Del Sol Photography is an internationally acclaimed studio, named by American Photo Magazine as one of the Top 10 Photographers in the World.

Del Sol Photography reviews and testimonials

“In closing, all I can think to say is our wedding was truly the happiest day of my life. There was the aroma of vibrant tropical flowers mixed with the salt air, sand between our toes, waves crashing behind us and our loved ones, vows of love given, the most bad-ass wedding photographers in Mexico (if not the world) capturing every moment for us, but the best…….marrying the love of my life! We got the fairytale!!!” Dreams Tulum Beach Wedding – Joneice + Patrick

“I actually worked backwards by choosing Del Sol Photography FIRST, then choosing the venue: Secrets Maroma Beach!  I knew from the get go I HAD to have Del Sol Photography for our wedding, so once that was squared away. We were able to look through the del Sol website at other wedding photos from different venues and do my own research based on what I thought we’d like.”

“I have to say, from the very beginning of this process, even before we selected the venue, the Del Sol Photography team was AMAZING. I was even able to Skype with a member of the team, before paying any kind of deposit. That just showed me how much the team (and the company as a whole) is truly invested in the process, and dedicated to making our wedding day truly special. The level of customer service and communication was out of this world – from the responsiveness, to the patience in answering all my questions (and I did have a ton of questions), to the actual wedding day – it was perfect, and worth every penny.  Rachel + James

“You have been so incredibly helpful, welcoming and informative. Going into this whole destination wedding we were scared about the process and dealing with vendors. You guys have super exceeded our expectations and we can not wait to have one of your photographers capture our wedding.” – Mariela (wedding to come in 2019!)

“The entire Del Sol Photography team made this process such an exciting adventure.” – Delilah

The professionalism and effort they’ve given us has given us memories for a lifetime. We knew we were getting the best quality and most humbling photography team out there. At times Matt has personally called us to help us get through bumps in our wedding planning that had nothing to do with photography. The whole team made us feel like friends discussing all kinds of things from abroad. They never made use feel like just another business to them.”

“The day of the wedding, I was so happy to see the team. At the altar, Anil and I were whispering to each other on how the Del Sol Photography team was literally in every corner of the church in the most awkward spots that they can put themselves in just to get a great picture of us.”Delilah + Anil

“The Del Sol Photography team was fantastic. We think you guys really take pride into your work and made the whole event seamless. We really appreciated the attention to detail and helping us look and feel our best. Thank you again for the great time!”Yola + Ken

“The entire Del Sol Photography team is professional and incredibly helpful. Even with the long distance between us, the planning process was seamless, straightforward and a lot of fun! We were always well informed and they were very quick to respond to all our questions along the way. We can’t wait to plan our next photo shoot with Del Sol Photography!”Celeste
