Wedding Photographer Riviera Maya

Jonathan Cossu and his partner were awesome! We are so glad we chose them for our wedding! We had a last minute change of venue due to rain, and they were super accommodating and able to get excellent pictures, even though they had planned for an outdoor wedding. Their creativity is top-notch, and they were both extremely professional in their interactions with us and our guests. They sent us back our pictures very quickly, and I was impressed with the quality of them. I was upset as I wasn't able to have an outdoor wedding in the end, but Jonathan captured the indoor moments perfectly and was still able to give us excellent portraits that we will cherish forever. I would definitely recommend Jonathan Cossu if you are getting married in the Cancun area, and I think he provides excellent value for the price of his packages.

Jonathan was the photographer for a intimate wedding my wife and I had in a Villa on Soliman Bay, Mexico. Jonathan and his staff were professional through the entire process. When we picked to book with them they were very responsive and informative. They showed up on time and worked with the hair and make-up crew, along with the wedding planner to capture every moment of the wedding. Interacting with them was effortless and we enjoyed having them apart of our day. Jonathan has a very unique style of photography which I thought was very creative and out of the box. He is not just a stand and pose photographer. It was very interactive and captures the emotion of the wedding very well. I highly recommend Jonathan and his staff.

Jonathan Cossu did a wonderful job of photographing our wedding! He is gifted in capturing the particular zest that makes your wedding unique. Highly recommend. Prior to sending your the final selection of photos, Jonathan provides a "quick glimpse" of about 15 photos about a week after the wedding for you to share with friends. That selection was so special I would have been happy with just those! Many thanks to Jonathan and his crew for capturing our special wedding memories.

Jonathan was very punctual and showed up at our hotel right on time with another photographer (bonus since I wasn't expecting two). They were very professional and experts in taking pictures. I was especially impressed with the lighting in the shots, and the creativity. My fiance and I were told to act natural in the photos, and didn't get much guidance of what to do together, but the photos turned out excellent and we couldn't be happier. Thanks, Jonathan!

Jonathan Cossu was an excellent choice for our Hindu wedding in Cancun. In our search for the perfect photographer, we started off our search with a budget in mind and decided to choose someone from either US or Canada, but we quickly discovered that doing so meant we would have a large amount of additional costs in bringing them to Mexico. We had already found it difficult to communicate with many of our Mexican wedding planners from the resort, so we heavily considered reprioritizing our budget numbers to afford such a decision, but that's when we came across Jonathan Cossu and his assistants. First impressions were very positive; he represented a company that cared about more than just "landing a gig". He and his staff showed enthusiasm for our big day, and they seemed really excited to have the opportunity to share this moment with us. Most of all, it was super easy to communicate in English with him and his staff and their replies were prompt and professional. His costs were very affordable and in-line with what our budget was, and he showed complete flexibility with his time on-site being divided as needed. Most companies/individuals we came across were unwilling to budge in this area, causing us to worry about the downtimes during the wedding (and with an Indian wedding, there can be a lot!), but Cossu was willing to accommodate all of our requests and he was very reasonable with his costs. There was complete transparency from Day 1 regarding all associated costs, and we did not have any surprises during or after the wedding. As a matter of fact, we ended up using him for even more of his services (private photography sessions for the bride&groom as well as a family photoshoot session). The fact that we ended up going with him continued to reward us all throughout the experience. We are most thankful for his familiarity of the area and his positive, upbeat personality. It was much needed, and served to our benefit.

After searching for hrs and hrs for my destination wedding photographer in the beautiful Riviera Maya, I found Jonathan through my wedding planner. What I have to say is he surely made our dreams come true with the type of details, passion, professionalism, and fun that he poured into our special day. I love the lively, natural, real laughter, tears, craziness that was captured as Jonathan's style. No stiff posing, everything is just purely your unique self. I also love the contrast style that goes into Jonathan's images. I would highly recommend Jonathan for your wedding or any of your special day because you know he's there 120% to make sure you get the BEST! My fondest memory was as our ceremony ran a little later than scheduled and Jonathan was trying to get us to have enough time for group shots and also bride and groom portraits before sun sets. He was so serious and dedicated about his work, he accidentally run into a bush/tree (my wedding was at the lovely Blue Venado with wild jungle) and had an open cut on his forehead. We were trying to make sure that he's okay and all he said was: no worries, let's get some beautiful sunset images! Thank you Jonathan for capturing our most memorable moments on our most special day!

Jonathan's energy is incredible. The photos captured were beyond phenomenal. His use of natural light is unlike no other. He is also very adamant about knowing what matters to you - special items, photos wanted etc. I could not be happier with my decision. His staff is also very responsive.

There is honestly nothing I can say to express how happy I was with Jonathan Cossu and his team! They were more than friendly and made you feel so comfortable. Our wedding pictures turned out to be more than I could have imagined and I am so excited to see the rest of our portfolio. If you want beautiful and in the moment photography, you NEED Jonathan Cossu!

I couldn't be happier with my decision to hire Johnathan for our Destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. From the moment he arrived (which was early) he was ready to begin. Both him and his assistant were professional yet personable. Melissa gave me great direction on how to pose. I made a list of family photos I wanted and Johnathan made sure we got them all. He captured so many emotional moments throughout the day that I would have never known happened. Our pictures are just breathtaking!! Thank you Johnathan!

I know I have given Jonathan 5 stars in every area, but I truly feel's he deserves more stars than available to give. Absolutely outstanding service, a brilliant and genuine guy. Was open to ideas on the day of our wedding and also gave us some brilliant suggestions. Professional, polite, friendly, organised, dependable..... what more can I say?! Thank you for making our day as perfect as it could possibly be.

We had a great time working with Jonathan and his assistant. The photos are absolutely beautiful and will be treasured for years to come. We booked Jonathan though Dean Sanderson, who recommended Jonathan as Dean was out of the country at the time of our wedding. However, if we could go back I would have booked directly with Jonathan as with Dean being away it was difficult at time to communicate with with him. I would highly recommend using Jonathan for any type of event.

Because the day goes by so fast (including your "one on one" time with the photographer), I would look through specific poses or types of photos you like BEFORE hand so you can really get everything you want out of the photography. We absolutely loved our photos, but upon looking back, we had wished we had taken some more "posed" shots of the two of us.

Jonathan and his team were so great! We hardly realized their team was around but they were photography ninjas because they got amazing shots! So nice and fun too :)

Leah said...

So great to work with. Made pictures very stress free and most importantly gorgeous pictures!

I am so happy that we booked Jonathan for our wedding! His portfolio is a true depiction of the quality pictures you will receive. Jonathan and his assistant arrived about 30 minutes early on the day of our wedding. They knew exactly what to do and jumped right in! Working with him was a breeze. I felt very comfortable the entire time, and we even laughed and had fun taking all the pictures. I received my final portfolio last night and WOW!!! The pictures are gorgeous. Looking through them with all the attention to detail Jonathan has was like reliving our day again. Really I can't recommend Jonathan enough! If you are getting married in the Riviera Maya area and he is free, do yourself a favor and book! He is worth every penny. Thank you to Jonathan and his entire time for giving us irreplaceable, wonderful memories of our big day.

Our decision to choose Jonathan was easy. From the moment we saw his pictures and how he captured every moment we knew we wanted him to tell our wedding story. Any email sent was responded to immediately and with professionalism. Once in Mexico we met the day of the wedding and we could not have been more impressed. Jonathan is professional, personable, and easy to be around. Our wedding pictures are absolutely amazing and we could not be happier! If your looking for a photographer to tell your love story Jonathan is the photographer for the job!

One of the hardest decisions when planning your wedding is choosing a photographer. When my wife and I settled on a destination wedding just north of Cancun (Playa Mujeres), we shopped photographers near where we lived and considered bringing one with us on the trip, but this quickly became very very expensive (near $10k). We then started searching for photographers in the Cancun area, and Jonathan's fantastic work came up. We pretty much made up our minds after seeing the amazing portfolio he has online. We fell in love with his underwater cenote trash the dress sessions and also his candid style.
A couple months later we were in Cancun with Jonathan and his amazing colleagues/friends also helping with the shoot. Not only do they produce amazing photos and have a great eye for photos - they're super fun to work with. Jonathan is a charismatic, fun, and loving person who you'll quickly learn to be comfortable and be yourself with. If you're looking for those posed prom style photos, forget Jonathan and go elsewhere - he only takes super natural, but absolutely stunning candid ones (and a few posed ones with the fam). We felt the prices were very fair for the amazing work you receive. He and his team delivered on 100% of what they said and are willing to accommodate unique requests (we had to have an old car in one of our shoots). We had 3 sessions with the Cossu team and loved every minute of it. When I show friends the photos of the Cenote trass the dress session, they still don't believe it's real - they're so surreal and breathtaking.
You cannot go wrong if you choose Cossu! Great staff all around (office and shooters), fun/natural to work with, fair prices, absolutely stunning end results!
Thank you Jonathan and Team!
