We loved our photo shoot with Adair (Iván’s friend who is also a photographer). He spent so much time and effort to get great pictures of us. We had a great time walking around Merida with him and visited many areas we had not yet seen. He must have taken hundreds of pictures of us and sent us the best ones, edited perfectly, a few days after the shoot. We are so happy with the end result and love having the pictures as a souvenir of our trip.

I had a great photo shoot with Ivan! He let me show him my ideas so I could get exactly what I wanted and he made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend booking him to get some photos around the city!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AGAINST BOOKING THIS EXPERIENCE. This experience with Ivan was literally the worst travel booking I have had and I’ve booked a lot on this platform. I hate leaving bad reviews but my experience was so bad that I would give Ivan zero stars if I could. I told Ivan exactly how I wanted my photos to be captured but he refused to take them the way I wanted my photos. I asked him to not take photos from the ground as this is a horrible angle of me and he admitted that other people have had the same request. He said he would capture different type of photos from low on the ground and higher and that I shouldn’t worry. When he was capturing photos he had me turn around or look away from the camera most of the time so I had no idea he wasn’t capturing any photos they way I had asked. Even though these photos are for me and not for him he completely ignored my request! After he delivered the photos to me I asked him why he captured photos only from a very low angle and he said he couldn’t help this because it was his style. So he lied to my face when we were doing the photo shoot! Also, when he delivered the photos to me many of them were overexposed and were not professional looking photos. I was shocked because the photos did not look like the photos he has on this listing. The photos were so bad that I won’t use a single one for my blog or social media channels. I have my own DSLR camera and I understand photography so I should have just taken photos myself but I wanted someone else to take my photos because I was alone in Merida. I asked Ivan why the photos were overexposed and low quality but he ignored me. I told him I wasn’t happy with his work but he ignored my messages and never offered a resolution. So not only was his work low quality but his customer service is non-existent and this was even after I gave him a generous tip when he was done capturing my photos! The entire experience felt like was a scam because I don’t think Ivan cares about this anymore since he is currently living on the other side of the Yucatán. I truly think because he no longer lives in Merida and the fact that there just aren’t as many tourists in México right now that he doesn’t care about his work. He probably assumes he won’t have many upcoming clients and he just wanted to make quick money off of me without caring about his work. Ivan will probably publicly respond to this review I’ve left even though he won’t respond to my concerns I’ve sent him through private messages. He will probably say he produces high-quality work and that he has many happy clients. Maybe he was producing high-quality work when he actually lived in Merida but I can confirm that my photos were low quality and he seemed very apathetic during the entire experience. He even admitted to me that he has tried to move his experience from Merida to Bacalar because he now lives closer and there are more tourists there but he hasn’t been able to move it. So I think he’s just done with his work in Merida and I was unlucky because he stopped caring about his work and I paid almost $100 for a scam experience.

La sesión de fotos con Ivan estuvo genial. Desde un inicio me se to comida y en confianza con el. Conoce bien la ciudad y los lugares ideales para unas fotos padrísimas como recuerdo de mi viaje. El proceso para obtener las fotos fue rápida y eficaz. Les recomiendo muchísimo los servicios de Ivan si están en busca de unas fotos clásicas con un twist de Mérida.

I’m thrilled with the results — Iván is such a great photographer! I wanted to get some photos to remember my two months in this wonderful city. Iván is not only has a great knowledge of where to shoot compelling photos in this city, he also is skilled at getting photos you can use on a professional level, and his edits have a mystical, magical feel to them. He’s also a sweet guy and I enjoyed getting to know him. This is my third photo shoot through Airbnb Experiences and Iván brought a great level of skill. Highly recommended.
