"We had our wedding in Playa del Carmen, MX, it was a day I won't forget and will always be able to cherish and thanks to Elizabeth and her team, can always look back at. I have to firstly say that Elizabeth and her team were absolutely WONDERFUL to work with. Professional, FUN, energetic, warm and caring, attentive to detail, and all around great people to work with. They were a huge part of our wedding day and made it that much more special. From the beginning, Elizabeth worked with us on our budget, our needs and wants, and listened to our requests-not that we even needed any, she would do amazing work without us even telling her anything! She responded quickly and was always helpful. She and her team made our destination wedding picture dreams come true. And I am not exaggerating. Even though the day was a little rushed at the beginning because we had so much going on, Elizabeth did not miss a beat and captured some of the most amazing memories and moments on camera. Any time I look at our pictures I get emotional and it brings back all the love that surrounded us, the fun that we had, and lovely memories we made that day. That is what pictures are supposed to capture, right? They did such a good job at that. Also captured- all the crazy/funny moments that we will forever laugh at. :) Her work is beautiful and I cannot recommend her enough. Totally worth the value and would do it all over again with Elizabeth as our wedding photographer. Muchas gracias por capturar el mejor dia de mi vida. "

Elizabeth Medina is an incredibly gifted artist. She captured the special moments of our wedding day; not just between us, but moments with our guests and families. She took the most beautiful photos of the surroundings and summarized every aspect of the day beautifully through her amazing photography. Beyond her insurmountable talent, Elizabeth has a calming presence and she is incredibly kind, composed, professional, and creative. Seeing her passion and excitement as she shoots different details from your wedding day makes you feel confident and happy to have her around. I could go on for a long time about her great personality! From the first time we spoke on the phone, I felt like I trusted her and trusted her opinion; and it only got better from there. Our wedding photographs are incredibly beautiful and priceless to us. They are filled with emotion in every way that we hoped for and every time we look at them we are taken back in time to our wedding day. Thank you Elizabeth, for capturing the day perfectly! Love, Julie & Matt

I cannot say enough great things about Elizabeth Medina Photography! For starters her work is amazing, she and her team are truly talented in what they do and capture every beautiful moment of your wedding. I have had countless compliments on our wedding photos and I am so glad I have these timeless photos forever. Elizabeth also provides the BEST customer service. I was very nervous booking vendors from a far for my destination wedding, but she helped me feel at ease and I felt I was taken care of every step of the way. She is quick to respond to communication and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend her services to any bride, by far my favorite vendor for my wedding!

Elizabeth and her team are truly top notch. I would recommend her to brides and grooms planning a destination wedding 100 times over. She responds in a timely manor and helped us out with deciding what would work best for our wedding. She made us feel so comfortable and gave us perfect direction to make our pictures beautiful and natural. The quality of the photos are amazing. Everyone who sees them loves them as much as we do.

When my husband and I decided to have a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico earlier this year, we had no idea where to find a photographer to share in our special day. We searched and searched for the perfect photographer and decided to go with Elizabeth Medina because her work speaks for itself. We looked at many websites from various photographers, but nobody's pictures came close to Elizabeth's artistic, creative and amazing photos.

We could not be more pleased with how our wedding pictures came out!!! We have so many beautiful pictures to choose from!! All of our friends and family are really enjoying the pictures. Even the people who couldn't attend the wedding said they felt like they were there because Elizabeth captured the moments so well. We cannot thank her enough for being part of our day.

Elizabeth and her daughter Lauren make a great team. They did an amazing job capturing all of the fun, beautiful and heart felt moments at our wedding. During the wedding planning process, we Skyped with Elizabeth to learn more about her and her photography style. We had a checklist of questions to ask her and she patiently answered all of them. She was so nice to us on the call, I couldn't wait to meet her in person! When our wedding day finally arrived and we met Elizabeth, it was just like seeing an old friend. I loved working with her!! We recommend Elizabeth to EVERYBODY getting married in Mexico!!!!

Every bride has different expectations -- Mine was all about photography and sun, sand, sea, and palm trees.

I fell in love with the idea of a destination wedding when I stumbled upon a wedding photographed by Elizabeth Medina showcased on I immediately fell in love with her work - and so did my entire family and husband-to-be. Our small beach wedding in Massachusetts was cancelled the second we saw her work, and we after a full week dedicated to searching for a venue in Mexico, we solidified a location. Elizabeth Medina single-handedly convinced every single guest that this was the best idea I've ever had in my life :)

Elizabeth and Lindsey were incredibly sweet, personable, and so professional, even while emailing back and forth. I had back up photographers just in case, but I knew that it just wouldn't be the same without her expertise and incredible talent. Our emails back and forth were timely, and always answering questions, etc.

The day of the wedding, I had no special requests really for pictures... But Elizabeth, I'm convinced, knew what to do based on my personality. She captured moments I never really could ever imagine... Her pictures speak more than a thousand words.

Having Elizabeth and Lindsey photograph our wedding was an absolute honor. I told them when I met them, "I feel like I'm meeting celebrities!" It was the best addition to such a wonderful venue and wedding... I'll forever hold a special place for those two ladies in my heart. I am not sure I can ever thank them properly enough.

You will not regret this once in a lifetime opportunity to book Elizabeth Medina Photography.

Having Elizabeth and her team capture our wedding day through her pictures was truly a dream come true! Before contracting her for our wedding, my husband and I were already familiar with the quality of her work since she was the wedding photographer for 2 (yes 2!!) of his siblings weddings. Needless to say, once we booked our wedding date at the Dreams Tulum Resort we didn't twice to book Elizabeth Medina for our own wedding. Once our wedding day arrived, Elizabeth and her team were easy to work with and since she was already familiar with our resort she knew what locations to go for great pictures. Overall, my husband and I were left in awe once we saw our pictures as she was able to captures a variety of beautiful moments that we will cherish forever.

We have been "fans" of Elizabeth Medina Photography website and blog for years so when our daughter chose Playa del Carmen, Mexico for her destinaton wedding-we were excited to book out photographer! (We booked Elizabeth Medina BEFORE she had a dress!). We are SO pleased with our photographs and the fabulous album. Our daughter and her husband have had many compliments on their photographs. I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. If you see the website, you'll want to get married amazing and they capture beautiful moments.
Elizabeth responded to our emails in a timely fashion. Everything was organized and relaxed on the day of the wedding. Elizabeth and her daughter are not just talented but are also very sweet and kind! We consider them part of our family!

Michele and David

Campeche, Mexico

When we decided to have a destination wedding in the Yucatan on relatively short notice there were two things I wouldn't compromise on. One was a beautiful gown. Check! The other was stunning photos that we would want to look at again and again. Check!

Elizabeth was my very first choice, and even as I sent the email out I was mourning that there could be no way she'd be avalable. But the stars were aligned because she had one day open which was the day we were trying to coordinate. That sealed the deal, we'd work around her schedule to make things come together.

We couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. She was quick to respond and her friendly pesonality came through even by email. Many brides would never be able to meet your photographer and have her immediately start shooting but that is exactly what happened and never for a minute did I question either myself or Elizabeth. Because of her responsiveness and beautiful blog I knew we had made the right choice. She put us at ease from the first photo.

Our photos and video are amazingly beautiful and captured our small, intimate wedding perfectly. My husband has said it's the smartest decision we have ever made and the best money we've ever spent. Family and friends have also commented on how great the photos are and captured us and our wedding perfectly.

Elizabeth is a very professional and easy to work with photographer. She and the team coordinated well between the bride, the groom and the guests to make sure nothing was missed. Her photography style was exactly what we were looking for. She was great at direction but also great at in the moment shots we weren't aware of.
Short after the wedding we first received a little sneak peak of the pictures and a few weeks after, all the pictures on a usb stick, which was very convenient.
The pictures were absolutely beautiful and amazing! Elizabeth and her team are awesome at what they do. They really know how to capture special moments. They are professional, fun, and reliable. They definitely made our wedding day better. Thank you!!

We are absolutely ecstatic - we were just saying to each other that it is the BEST wedding album we've ever seen, and the great thing is that it's OURS!!

I was two hours late for work this morning because I kept watching the slide show over and over and over!! I couldn’t even get in the shower. Brian was laughing at me because I would hit play and cry every time I watched it! Happy tears, of course:) I have emailed the link to a few friends of ours and family and everyone keeps responding with the same word: “WOW!” Quite a few people have already told me that these are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen! I feel so blessed that we have these! Thank you so much for everything. This is what we have to remember and look back on for the rest of our lives and I couldn’t imagine anything better."

"OH MY GOODNESS- THANK you SOOOO very much for all of the heart and soul you put into our photos!!! We just looked at the slideshow, and I am in tears.... happy, of course! You captured every single moment exactly how I pictured it in my head for two years. I could have not asked for anything more.….I don't know how I could ever thank you enough for- 1. The best photos EVER- which I knew would happen because you're fabulously spectacular! 2. Being so very accommodating, responsive, dependable...and beyond, and 3. Being the sweetest, most down to earth team that I could have ever hoped for- and I would love to stay in touch. I plan on stalking the blog as long as I live. Maybe not as often as previously stalked- but I'll definitely still check at least weekly ;)"

What a gem of a talent you two have; so rare, precious, and hard to find!
Muchísimas gracias por todo."

I can’t stop praising you enough. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH. That day was the best day of my life and you have made it so that it will never be forgotten.

Thanks for clearing your schedule to make it happen.We are incredibly grateful.Thank you for your time and all your efforts! YOU ABSOLUTELY ROCK THE HOUSE MEDINA!!!!!.... Love love love what you did...;)"

Jackie & Don

"Just wanted to let you know that Don and I have had a chance to share our slideshow and gallery with family and friends, who have in-turn shared with their family and friends and I have gotten so many compliments on your amazing photographs! Both from people who were there with us in Cozumel and know how perfectly you captured the beauty and emotion of the day and also from those who weren't able to attend - or sometimes from people I barely know, that feel like they were there after watching the slideshow! When I set out to plan our wedding, there were very few things on my "To Do" list that I was very interested in. The first was writing the ceremony, the second was finding a photographer. Everything else just didn't seem that important. Now that all is said and done, I am so happy that I focused on the things that were important to me - I soaked up every second of the ceremony and now am reliving the experience through your photographs. I have no idea how we're going to pick just a handful for an album! Thank you again for so beautifully capturing our wedding!"

Robin and Heath

Puerto Morelos, Mexico

"I love Elizabeth Medina and her work!
Her website will show you why: The photographs are not only technically wonderful (my hubby used to be a photojournalist and agrees), but also artistically and emotionally moving...
Although there are other talented photographers out there, I continued to be drawn back to Elizabeth’s style and the moments she captured. So I was heartbroken when Elizabeth let me know that she was not available for my wedding weekend! She gave me other photographer recommendations, and, not knowing what else to do, off I went. After discovering that some of the others were available, I was still continually going back to Elizabeth’s website. Feeling I had nothing to lose, I contacted her again to see if by chance there had been a cancellation (hope springs eternal). After a couple of email exchanges, we discovered that the wedding she was photographing was on Friday, with a trash the dress session on Saturday (another beautiful BDW wedding- Kate!), and my wedding was Sunday afternoon. Even though that meant that Elizabeth and her assistant would have to fly from Puerto Vallarta to Cancun (with an overnight in Mexico City and a 6am flight the next morning!), they made my dream come true by agreeing to do it. That blew me away, and I was thankful beyond words. Mine is just one example of Elizabeth’s (and her staff’s) dedication to her wedding couples- she truly loves what she does and it shows.

Elizabeth let me know that she had arrived at our resort, so I didn’t have to worry/stress (which was great). When it came time to start taking pictures, Elizabeth had a very easy, lovely demeanor. She has you fill out a sheet of must-have photos a few weeks prior to the wedding, so you don’t have to think about it on the day. Since we knew how good her work was, my husband and I were able to just fully take in the day and everything/everyone that was part of it, with complete trust and confidence that the photos would be great.

About 5 weeks after the wedding, we got our photos! We love them. It was so special to have the slideshow link to send to our friends and family. Everyone commented (and continues to comment) that the photos are amazing. One of the best parts was that our friends and family that could not attend our wedding were able to share the experience of it through the slideshow. That meant so much to us.

Elizabeth is originally from the states, but has lived in Mexico for years. It was great to not have to fly a photographer down (and have someone who knew the area), but more importantly, to have a true artist recording the memories of our wedding!
My husband and I will always be grateful to Elizabeth for giving us such memorable images of our day, which we will have for the rest of our lives."
