Destination weddings & "trash the dress" photography

A beach destination wedding in Ixtapa is relaxing and stress-free, and it is oftentimes much more affordable than getting married in the United States or Canada.

Sanchez Photography & Videography can help you capture more than just your wedding day. We can also cover "trash the dress" and family activities.


Ixtapa weather is in the 70s or 80s year round. It has the ability to rain for most of the year, with the best weather in February - April.

The town is known for the beaches, surfing, wildlife, and coral reefs.

By getting married in Ixtapa, you can have your reception outdoors or indoors, whatever you prefer! Another great aspect of Ixtapa is that you are far enough away from the hustle and bustle of home, but you are close enough that your friends and family can get there easily by flying into Zihuatanejo.


Ixtapa has something to offer everyone. Whether you are looking for an all-inclusive resort, adults only resort, luxury hotel, or small boutique resort, you and your partner will find something that is on budget and perfect for you.

Many Ixtapa resorts have multiple pools, bars, restaurants, and lounges. While you have everything that you could need on property, you are also close enough to explore downtown Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo.

By having a destination wedding in Ixtapa, you do not need to worry about wedding planning. Hotel wedding packages provide couples with a wedding coordinator that will serve as their wedding planner.

There are so many activities for you to do as newlyweds or with your wedding guests.


Palma Real and Marina Ixtapa golf courses have great views and canals that would be a great morning activity for the golfers in your group.

If members of your group want to learn to surf, you can take surf lessons. If you would like to see the coral reefs, you could go on a group snorkel tour to Las Gatas Beach or charter a boat for your group privately.

Both Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo have downtown areas where you can dine or go shopping. Zihuatenejo is a larger city, while Ixtapa is more of a beach town.


As newlyweds, you could also do a boat tour on your own to have some more time to yourself. You should also take advantage of your hotel’s spa and get a couples massage. Many hotels have fine dining, and you might even be able to book a reservation if you are not staying at the hotel.
