Where should we go for honeymoon photos in Tulum?
Slow down, and enjoy the best of what Mother Nature offers in Tulum’s sleepy bohemian paradise. The location for your honeymoon photography session is up to you, and really depends on your unique personalities. Honeymooners in the Mayan Riviera usually want to shoot at the beach, of course, but we invite you to think outside the box with other backdrops too!
- lounging poolside at your hotel sipping margaritas
- swinging lazily in a hammock together watching the Caribbean sea roll in
- climbing ancient Mayan ruins in the jungle at Coba
- exploring the colorful shops along the dirt roads of Tulum
What time of day should we schedule our photography session?
If you are having a beach photo session, your session should run through the 1.5 hours before sunset when the light is buttery and the heat begins to subside. In our industry, this is referred to as the ‘Golden Hour’.
If this does not fit your schedule, or if you have the Coba ruins in mind, then early morning is best. The 1.5 hours immediately following the sunrise are magical in the Riviera Maya, as we face east.
How long does a honeymoon photography session last?
If you are working with any of the best honeymoon photographers in Tulum, your session will typically be one to 1.5 hours, which syncs up perfectly with the golden hours. This should give you the opportunity to explore a few different locations, and bring some diversity to the final images your package.
What should we bring to a Tulum photography session?
What you should pack depends of course on where you plan to shoot. Bring a change of clothes if you want photos in or around the ocean, or jumping in the pool. Be sure to share your vision with your honeymoon photographer beforehand and pack any props you think you may need. Here are a few other items to consider:
- Bottled water
- A bottle of champagne!
- Insect Repellant
- Different clothing options
- A dry change of clothes
What should we wear for honeymoon photos?
You will feel hot and sticky on most days during your honeymoon in Riviera Maya. You will definitely be most comfortable in lightweight, natural fibers. Think 100% cotton, silk or linen.
Your colors should compliment each other and also that of your chosen location. If you stick with the colors of the beach you can’t go wrong. Light blues or greens, corals or pinks, sandy browns or whites. Please avoid wearing any busy patterns or stripes if possible.
What can we expect from our honeymoon photo session?
Nothing beats candid photos for capturing the blissfulness of the newlywed vibe. It is best if you just go with the flow, and try to forget that there is a camera in the shadows. That’s where the magic happens.
But there are also certain cliché photos that you simply NEED to get when snapping off romantic pics with your Love. Practice and prepare for those by checking out this great article on 5 cliché honeymoon photos you need to have.
