Ivette Riquelme

Destination Wedding Specialist
Having accomplished a degree in visual arts I left my hometown with the idea of experiencing something new and exciting. To be honest, I wasn't completely sure of what I was looking for but I went for it! For a couple years, I had a wonderful time photographing family sessions on the beach in an all inclusive resort in Cancun. After a while, I jumped into working in cruise ships where I was part of weddings and the brides and grooms history through the art of photography. I had the chance to visit wonderful places and meet a lot of interesting people while working onboard. During that time, I was missing the idea of a place to call home and, keeping in mind that I love the beach, I started living in Playa del Carmen. I worked in the weddings department for a huge all inclusive resort in Riviera Maya for the last four years but was ready for a new challenge. And here I am, a part of Hola Weddings!
