Best Photography Spots for a Mexico City Photoshoot
Mexico City, a sprawling metropolis and the capital of Mexico, is a photographer's playground, where history, culture, and modernity collide in a vibrant mosaic of visual inspiration. The city's rich tapestry unfolds through your lens, from the grandeur of colonial architecture in the historic center to the colorful street life and market scenes in neighborhoods like Coyoacán and Xochimilco. The iconic landmarks, such as the Palacio de Bellas Artes and the ancient ruins of Teotihuacán, offer a wealth of architectural and historical subjects. Mexico City's dynamic street art, lively festivals, and the warm smiles of its people present endless opportunities for candid and documentary photography. With its bustling streets, grand plazas, and a palpable sense of cultural identity, Mexico City is a treasure trove of visual stories waiting to be captured.
TLDR - Would recommend Ruben 10/10!
I wanted to set up a surprise engagement at Teotihuacan and one of the friends on our Mexico City trip was able to book a private tour for us and get the tour guide onboard - easy.
After that, I decided it would be awesome to be able to find a photographer who could capture the moment for us, which is how I ran across Local Lens and Ruben.
As I was looking for availability, I realized that I probably should've looked a bit sooner, as there was only about a week or two before the date, but luckily Ruben quickly responded that he was available on the date, and was flexible enough to arrive early morning to beat us to the spot to be ready for the surprise!
Ruben always quickly responded, and even suggested that I connect him directly with our tour guide so that they could coordinate e...-BradenView Photographer profile
Our photo session with Ruben was one of the best experiences on my Mexico trip. He managed everything, such as photo location, and place to get makeup for the Day of the Dead. We just enjoyed relying on him for everything as he is very professional, such as posing or facial expressions.
We appreciate your flexibility and patience even if we missed a meeting time or kept you waiting in chilly conditions. We really chose the right person, of course, as a photographer and as a friend. Highly recommend him without any doubt!-AikoView Photographer profile
Ruben was so easy to work with and delivered beautiful photos of our family. He was accommodating and helped find a location close to where we were staying since our kids were young, and a long car ride would have put them in a bad mood. He played games with the witch, made them more excited to participate, and resulted in wonderful photos. We would highly recommend Ruben for your next photoshoot!-KhushbooView Photographer profile
Ruben was absolutely incredible for this photoshoot. He worked with me for several weeks to find the best way to surprise my partner with a proposal for this trip. He was incredibly flexible with timings, even when there were a few hiccups in the morning.
He was very quick with making sure the photos were uploaded. Every single photo and pose he took looked stunning - I would highly recommend hiring him as photographer for any future photo sessions.-YashView Photographer profile
Ruben was wonderful! He has a great eye and is so personable! Everyone had a good time, and he felt like part of the family! I absolutely recommend him!-AmandaView Photographer profile
I am so glad that I found Ruben! I can’t say enough about how professional Ruben is and the quality of work that he provides. I was so pleased with my session and final photographs, that I will continue to use him in the future.
I would definitely recommend Ruben. 10/10!!-SahitView Photographer profile
Jesse was an incredible photographer with both an excellent eye for creative shots and an intuition of our needs and wants for a memorable photoshoot.
My partner and I do not like being the center of attention, but Jesse put us at ease and made our photo shoot seem perfectly natural and fun. It was the perfect mix of instruction/and direction letting us be ourselves and capturing our best sides.
We are super happy with the pictures and had an absolute blast taking them! I would recommend Jesse to anyone!-AndrewView Photographer profile
Carlos was an excellent choice for our anniversary shoot. He was immediately personable, and we felt comfortable with him right away. Also, his knowledge of places that are good for shots is great. We trusted him completely.-CoraView Photographer profile
If you’re like me, planning a proposal was both exciting and overwhelming. I was fortunate enough to be able to plan a trip to one of our favorite cities, CDMX, and I knew I wanted to pop the question there. But where should we go? When should I do it?
The questions went on and on. But once Ruben came into the picture, my worries and questions went away. He helped me plan everything, gave me options and location ideas, and handled it all. I could not have done it without him.
The proposal itself ended up being perfect - and not only that, we got the most amazing photos of the engagement itself, plus the best photos of us as a couple we’ve ever taken as Ruben brought us an on a photoshoot tour of Roma Nte.
I can not recommend Ruben enough - from planning to execution, he went above and beyond my expectations.-MarkView Photographer profile
