We used Playaloves.me for our wedding and a trash the dress session and were thrilled with the results. We actually regretted not upgrading our wedding photo package! Laura and her assistant Astrid were both fun and professional. Laura was super on top of it during the wedding, working with the time we had and making sure to get all the important shots to make the pictures really show the story of our special day. We had our trash the dress session in a cenote a couple days later, which was super fun and resulted in BEAUTIFUL pictures. We are still receiving compliments on them and our wedding was almost 3 months ago. Thank you so much, Playaloves.me!

Babymoon in Tulum © 2012 Laura McNamara | Playaloves.me

Our photo shoot really changed the course of my pregnancy. I’ve been sending out pictures to people as sort of an announcement. Somehow you made me look and feel beautiful and HAPPY. That is what most people say when they see them. “Wow, you look so happy” and “it’s good to see you finally happy”! Do you remember how excited I was when I first saw them? …these photos are everywhere. A little obsessed, maybe? I have made small & large photo book poster sized collage, framed enlargements for mothers day, fathers day, hostess gifts for shower… I pretty much have these photos in every format, size, shape, ect…even shadow box… I still can’t believe how beautiful you made me look AND feel. Seriously, you are amazing. I’m so lucky to have found the best photographer in Tulum for us and our special event! Your are such a sweet and lovely young lady. You have an awesome spirit and your enthusiasm for photography is magical! We enjoyed meeting you!

Laura,

I wanted to personally thank you for the beautiful pictures you have given our family. I finally looked them over yesterday evening after returning to Kansas and was even more pleased than when I last saw you to get our preview. If you ever get on tripadvisor.com be sure to let us know as we will post a recommendation for you on that site. I am glad I got to meet you and good luck in your future endeavors for I am sure you will go far in your career.

Sincerely and thankful,

- Joseph Couture (Family Portraits captured at the Royal Haciendas)

“The photos Laura took really captured the playful spirit of our family and are so gorgeous! The only negative was that there were just too many great shots for us to narrow down, we ended up buying them all!”

Couture Family Reunion ©2012 Laura McNamara | Playaloves.me

My family traveled to Playa Del Carmen in June 2012 for a family reunion and I contacted Playaloves.me to capture family portraits for us. Laura was so helpful and professional from the start, answering my countless questions via email, providing samples of her work and helpful information about the Riviera Maya area where we were staying. During the photo shoot she was so much fun to work with, making the shoot enjoyable and relaxed for the kids and adults alike. The photos she took really captured the playful spirit of our family and are so gorgeous! The only negative was that there were just too many great shots for us to narrow down, we ended up buying them all! In addition, the customer service continued even after we returned home to the USA with her providing some additional edits and printing tips for us. I would highly recommend Playaloves.me and would definitely use them again.”

- Carrie Couture (Family Portraits captured at the Royal Haciendas)

“We are so happy with the pictures!”

Claire Beynon © Laura McNamara | Playaloves.me

Just a quick note, to write about the recent pleasure I had working with Playalovesme. We shot over a day, where the weather was not in our favour. But PLM used this to our advantage and we took some magical shots in unique locations. With an amazing team of photographers available to work with at PLM, the styles are varied and versatile, and the results are outstanding! As a model, whether it be for a day, for fun, or forever, you are involved in the process, your ideas and fears matter. The team at PLM team are profesional, reliable and fun.

I cant speak highly enough of PLM! Thanks Guys!”

“It was our first time taking professional pictures and the entire experience was incredibly laid back and easy going. We received lots of direction when needed, but mostly were just encouraged to be ourselves and act natural.”

Playaloves.me Christmas in Playa © Laura McNamara | Playaloves.me

Let me first start off by saying my fiancé, Rob, isn’t the biggest fan of having his picture taken. So, of course, when I signed us up for a session with Playaloves.me to capture our holiday photos, let’s just say he wasn’t thrilled. Fortunately, when we got to the photography site, the Playaloves.me crew quickly reshaped what Rob’s weary perception of a typical photo shoot actually was. It was our first time taking professional pictures and the entire experience was incredibly laid back and easy going. We received lots of direction when needed, but mostly were just encouraged to be ourselves and act natural. The entire experience, from start to finish was so playful and we had tons of fun! Even better, the pictures turned out amazing and Rob loved them (he ordered every single shot)… plus, get this; he says he’d do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you Playaloves.me for capturing our memories and providing us with a wonderful first experience.

- Ann Nguyen (Christmas Couple Portraits captured in Playacar)

“We always recommend Playaloves.me Photography… from last minute wedding needs to photographing food from our very own restaurant, Playaloves.me has always come through for our hotel, delivering professional and amazing service.”

Ann and Rob © 2012 Laura McNamara | Playaloves.me

I manage the Hotel Aventura Mexicana, a boutique hotel in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We have guests visit us from all over the world to celebrate weddings, honeymoons, family vacations, holidays, etc. And whenever they inquire about ways to capture these special occasions we always recommend Playaloves.me Photography.

The owner of the company has lived all over the world and speaks multiple language, which very much comes in handy when you are trying to relate to the people being photographed so that you can capture their true essence in the pictures. From last minute wedding needs to photographing food from our very own restaurant, Playaloves.me has always come through for our hotel, delivering professional and amazing service.”

- Rob Smearing (Couples Portraits captured at Hotel Aventura Mexicana)

“There wasn’t a single picture that I didn’t like… it has really been a great experience.”

“I (who do NOT enjoy being photographed) wound up having a WONDERFUL time and now my husband and I have photographs that truly capture ‘us’.”

Damian and Catherine Yanez © 2012 Laura McNamara | Playaloves.me

We did a last minute photo shoot with playaloves.me right before a nephew’s wedding rehearsal dinner. I (who do NOT enjoy being photographed) wound up having a WONDERFUL time and now my husband and I have photographs that truly capture “us”. In 18 years of marriage, we’ve never had that before. We had a fun time, it is a great memory for us and priceless photos!”
