Best Puerto Vallarta Photography Spots for a Photoshoot
Puerto Vallarta sits in Mexico’s largest bay and offers lush green mountains, long stretches of beach, and warm, deep Pacific water. Downtown’s cobblestone streets, boardwalk, and market are always busy. Most large resorts and the best beach can be found near Nuevo Vallarta. Visitors can also explore the towns of Bucerías and Sayulita for shopping and beach hopping. Below are the top four photoshoot spots our Puerto Vallarta photographers recommend for your next trip.
I wanted a warm place with great sunset views to propose to my girlfriend. Puerto Vallarta turned out to be the perfect location. My girlfriend did not know I was going to propose, so it needed to be a surprise. Coming from the US, I was a little nervous about setting up a professional photographer, but then I stumbled upon Local Lens and noticed they had a photographer in PV. Jhovany was my photographer. He and his partner did a fantastic job. Great photos and they knew exactly what to do. It was a surprise so they had to play it cool - they definitely pulled it off. My girlfriend was shocked when I got down on one knee. I would highly recommend Jhovany if you need a professional photographer in Puerto Vallarta! They met me at Le Kliff restaurant as I had rented out the private dining terrace which was also a great value and one-of-a-kind scenery for the occa...-CJView Photographer profile
Our photoshoot with Jhovany and his team is one of our best experiences in Puerto Vallarta. This is our second time working with his team, and we were very pleased both times. From customer service to fulfilling our requests, we are all on point.
Ulise would always chat with us to let us know exactly what’s going on. Very quick at responding and great at communication. They also work hard to accommodate our schedule. They would go out of their way to make things work.
Our pictures turned out great! Very stylish, very dramatic, yet you still get those candid moments. We went through the photos and still remember how each photo was captured.
I cannot recommend Jhovany and his team enough. They were both professional and friendly; we totally felt like family with them. Thank you so much guys. Until next time :)-StaceyView Photographer profile
I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things to describe both our shoot and the finished results with Marion. With 4 & 2 year old boys, my expectations of family photos have lowered substantially. If I can get one good photo out of the session, I’m happy.
Marion blew my expectations out of the water. There are literally too many great ones to choose! I am beyond grateful for his services. He’s captured images I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.-TerriView Photographer profile
Hi Cristian, Thank you so much for all of the lovely photos! You managed to capture all of our giant crazy family and get so many "frame-able" images :). Exactly what I wanted! You were so kind and easy to work with and made the process so simple! Thank you!!-AshleyView Photographer profile
Marion was simply amazing. From receiving a personalized message from him prior to booking, reserving my shoot, communication all throughout was absolutely excellent. Given that I opted for the incognito surprise style proposal I had to change plans multiple times and Marion was extremely accommodating and also helped with finalizing the location and time of day for it to be the best possible outcome that I could not have even imagined. His photo taking skills are also excellent, the pictures turned out stunning and we could not thank Marion enough for his service. Highly recommend for any style shoot. You will not be disappointed.-Ramzy & AndyView Photographer profile
Marion did a fantastic job managing 22 people ranging from 7 to 73. He made the shoot fun, keeping people engaged with him.
His versatility as a professional photographer was incredible.
We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer throughout the Puerto Vallarta area.
Family Vibes in PV 2023-TamaraView Photographer profile
Marion did such a fantastic job with this photoshoot! My family (a group of 9) had two very young children in the shoot, and Marion got their attention and made their experience fun and fast-paced. He is really great with kids! We really like his style and ability to do portrait photos, but he also specializes in candid photography.
Leading up to the photoshoot, Marion was quick to respond and helped us set up a good time and location for the shoot. He was also very understanding and flexible when we had to change our shoot day a few weeks before our shoot.-JoelView Photographer profile
