Our team is made up of Adrian Bonet and Ivonne Velazquez – Spanish and Mexican respectively. The two of us form a photographic duo with more than 10 years of experience. We started working together in 2006 when we founded a company dedicated to advertising photography in Barcelona, Spain. At that time we were especially focused on portrait and fashion photography. We worked for big companies and well-known advertising agencies.

With the passage of time, we became curious about wedding photography and decided to make a major change in our lives. We toured Spain doing wedding photo shoots until we felt we had completely mastered the art and formed a perfect rapport as professional partners. Gradually, our work as wedding photographers became more and more successful, and we ended up devoting ourselves to it exclusively.

In 2013, we decided to move to Mexico in order to shoot the weddings we had always dreamed of. We toured the country from north to south doing numerous photo shoots. We worked in Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Zihuatanejo, Sayulita, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Campeche, Merida, Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, among many other places.

We have visited many countries around the world. We know America, Europe, Africa and some of Asia. We love music, movies, art and literature. Photography is our passion – the act of capturing the beauty of a moment and freezing it in time. Today we live in Playa del Carmen and we are dedicated to shooting destination weddings for couples from all over the world.

Testimonials

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Adrian & Ivonne:

We just wanted to write and express our deepest appreciation for making our wedding day complete! To us, photography was one of the MOST important aspects of the wedding day and we are beyond happy with our photos! We knew you were the right people when we came across your website and read the reviews.

While there are many photographers available in Riviera Maya, we found that your artistic expression, photo retouching, and commitment to success were worth the extra investment to have you travel from Mexico City and photograph our wedding. This was the best investment we could have made for our wedding day!

All of our guests commented on how attentive you were and noticed the amount of photos and differentiated approaches you were taking throughout the day. Your passion for photography is truly evident in every photo. My friends say I am the pickiest person they know, and you managed to exceed my expectations! We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for high-quality photography. We are so happy we found you!

XOXO
Katie & Kirk Shields.

Many brides have that special moment when they find “THE DRESS.” Don’t get me wrong, I loved my dress.

But, my butterflies-in-my-stomach, jump-up-and-down, do-a-little-dance moment came when I found “THE PHOTOGRAPHER.”

You know how it goes, you spend hours looking at website after website of photographers and none of them speak to you, inspire you, or even make you smile. Then … I found Adrian.

Adrian and his partner, Ivonne, are masters at their craft. I fell in love with his candid pictures and portraits of the bride and groom. I also love that he took a lot of portraits of individual guests. My absolute favorite part of his pictures is the lighting and softness. The pictures are romantic, warm, and draw you in.

From beginning to end, working with Adrian was wonderful. He responded to emails quickly. My husband and I did not want any posed pictures, so Adrian’s style was right up our alley. They worked their magic all night snapping away and were practically invisible. You didn’t even notice them. They seemed to be at just the right place at just the right time. And captured so many magical moments.

End result? Stunning pictures that truly captured our special day. Each time I look at them, I feel as though I’m there … in the moment. And a lot of my guests have stunning, beautifully lit portraits, too. I just love that.

I would choose Adrian and Ivonne again and again. They were the best decision we made in our wedding planning. Hands down.

All it took was one look at Adrian’s website and my fiancé and I were hooked! We were a little lost when it came to booking a photographer (especially out of the country), but our photos turned out better than we could have imagined!

I absolutely loved the uniqueness of the photos and how all the candid shots captured every emotion of the day. Adrian and his partner were very professional and great to work with. We had a long break between our ceremony and dinner and I was a little worried how the day would play out since we didn’t have a set timeline, but Adrian and his partner just kept shooting and we ended up with beautiful pictures! He even got some great shots of us jumping in the pool! (Which I know was a challenge).

Overall, I couldn’t have picked a better photographer and we will cherish our photos forever! We are loving our pictures and have tons of them printed and framed all over the house!

Thank you for making our day so special,
Jessica & Joseph.

Planning a destination wedding in Mexico, while living on the eastern end of Long Island, was definitely an interesting experience to say the least. While I thought I had everything under control, my husband reminded me that we needed to find a wedding photographer.

We began the process by researching photographers within Playa del Carmen and/or the Riviera Maya area. We came across the name Adrian Bonet and his beautiful website of wedding photos. It was exactly what we both were looking for – candid shots with some formal ones mixed in. We wanted to capture the experience, gestures and overall excitement of not only us but also most importantly our guests.

The day of our wedding, Adrian and his assistant Ivonne, were exactly what we hoped for. They artistically captured moments that at times we had no idea about and neither did our guests, and we loved it! Adrian and Ivonne were calm, cool and collected and their candidly artistic photographs displayed just that.

My husband and I are so gracious and appreciative of how every single shot came to life and ecstatic to hear our loved ones talk about how much they cannot stop looking at our wedding photos. What great memories Adrian and Ivonne captured, and we are forever grateful.

Thank you again for all your hard work.

Best regards,
Laura & Brook.

Adrian (and his partner Ivonne) captured the magic of our wedding in a beautifully unique and candid way.

If what you want is unscripted, artistic, exquisitely executed photos of your wedding day, then Adrian is your photographer. His work combines a photojournalistic approach with creative use of composition, perspective, depth of field and flash to convey the emotion of the day. His photographic style is exactly what we were looking for and is very truthfully represented on his webpage. Additionally, Adrian was a joy to work with – he was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to all requests we had.

The final printed album surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the prints and the luxurious packaging are simply way better than any we have ever seen in a wedding album.

I would gladly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a unique and artistic photographic account of their special day.

Best regards,
Ivan & Jenny.

I have to say that Adrian made our wedding day so special and we have such a beautiful wedding album of the memories of this amazing day thanks to him.

We contacted Adrian four months before the wedding (wedding was on November 3rd and we contacted him in early July). I have a great professional photographer friend in NYC. I asked him to look up a photographer for me and he suggested Adrian. He liked Adrian’s portfolio the most and I am so happy that I trusted his opinion.

We signed the contract, chose the album cover (that, by the way, is very high-quality leather made in Italy and looks very luxurious) and made the first payment in July. Throughout the four months, Adrian was very professional and always responded to the emails within minutes.

On the wedding day he arrived early to see the venue. Even though this was his first wedding at this specific venue, he seemed to know his way around and felt very comfortable. He acted very professionally and I never felt bothered by the camera, yet Adrian managed to capture every detail of this special event.

The pictures came out beautifully, I really could not wish for more.

We were very impressed with Adrian (and his assistant, Ivonne) before, during and after our wedding in September 2012.

He communicated well before the wedding despite the language difference (my wife speaks Spanish but I did most of the organiz ing of the venue and photographer), making sure we had a solid timetable of events and an idea of the style of wedding we were planning. He also checked out the venue beforehand, which we thought was very professional.

During the wedding (through preparation, ceremony and reception) both Adrian and Ivonne worked quietly and almost unnoticed. This allowed them to capture some beautiful moments as people could just get on with having a good time and not worry about a camera in their face. At least half of the guests commented to us about how impressed they were with the photographers on the day. They also worked quickly with us while doing the couple portraits as we wanted to get back to the party. They also had to race at times as the best light came and went very quickly throughout the day due to the weather.

After the wedding we got to see the first photos within a few weeks. We had a large number of images that we were very happy with, which made it tough to choose the ones for the album. We have recently received the album, which looks absolutely amazing. We would have had it in November/December if not for our indecision with the images we wanted.

We have been to a few weddings now and are sure we had the best photographer of any of the ones we have been to. His style was exactly what we were looking for. We knew straight away that we could trust him to deliver on the day (we have friends who weren’t so lucky with their photographer), which was really important to us, obviously.

He exceeded our expectations. We would recommend Adrian without hesitation.

Kind regards,
Bret & Sonia.

That’s true!

Going back to Q1 2012, I was making one of my (common) deep researches through the internet looking for a photographer for our wedding. After several days, I found Adrian’s portfolio online. From that moment my only task was to convince my girlfriend that his team should be the one. His work spoke for itself.

I was doing all of this from Ireland, so it wasn’t that easy. Truth be told, I was 95% sure that he would do it. The 5% was finally and quickly clarified after talking with him a couple of times by phone. He created a good impression and agreed to move to attend the wedding.

Before the wedding, after just two or three more calls to talk about planning, we met him and his team right on the wedding day. They were exactly what we were expecting: astonishing professionals, doing their job without making guests realize they were there.

After the wedding, all the different material was delivered before schedule, and since then we haven’t stopped sharing his contact details, because whoever sees the photos asks for him!

I’ll rate him with 5 stars.

After the wedding is over and the memories begin to fade, photographs are a special way to remember the moments of such an important occasion. Adrian and Ivonne do an exceptional job capturing candid shots and the emotion that goes with it.

After falling in love with his photos from his website, my husband and I were able to “meet” Adrian via Skype, where he answered all our questions and explained his process of shooting a wedding.

His soft and quiet demeanor was great; most of the time you didn’t even know he was there, and he was able to capture you right in the moment – not stiff or posed. What you get are beautiful, genuine, emotional photographs. I find myself looking through our photos often and am transported back to that moment, that feeling.

I would highly recommend Adrian and Ivonne.
