ALIVE Studio was founded in 2014 by two Colombian siblings, Nestor & Marian Meneses with a passion for capturing true love and the spirit of a couple in love. Along with our team of talented wedding photographers and filmmakers in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and Bacalar we can capture every moment so you never forget your special day with your special someone.
We hope our photos and films tell the story of your relationship, and genuinely show off you and your love!. Our creative, outside-the-box photoshoots and videos are personalized for every couple or family we work with.
