Do you only shoot in Mexico? No I don’t! I love to travel and I’d be happy to shoot your wedding wherever it takes place. Except Alaska in winter… it’ so cold.
Do you also shoot video? Nope. I’m just a photographers. A really good photographer! :)
Should we meet you before the wedding? Of course. I highly recommend we meet you both a few days before the wedding to get to know each other, drink some coffee and talk about the two of you and your wedding.
When do we see our pictures? You will have the online gallery ready 6-8 weeks after the wedding, ready for your to download.
How does the proofing gallery work? It’s a password protected collection of all of your wedding photos hosted on the web. Once the photos are ready we will send you the link to your gallery so that you can share it with family and friends (if you want). You can also order prints directly using your online gallery.
How do we hire you? Once I confirm my availability for your date I require a 20% deposit. This retainer secures the date, time and our services for your wedding day. Next, we will both sign a wedding photography contract.
What’s your cancellation policy? Once you sign our photography contract, I block your wedding date for you only and do not accept other events the same day. For this reason, the initial deposit is non-refundable, but I can certainly transfer the deposit to another date based on availability.
How many pictures do I deliver? The number of pictures I take during your event depends on many factors: Type of event, number of guests and hours of coverage, among others. On average, I delivery between 40 and 70 images an hour. To provide an example, for 10 hours of coverage you will receive 400-700 photographs.
What about family portraits on the wedding day? I’m happy to take them if you ask. Normally I don’t take posed or formal pictures, as we prefer to capture your guests in the most natural and spontaneous moments, but if you really, really want a formal frame, I will do it for sure.
Talking about poses… No awkward poses = no fake smiles. Nobody likes that, much less the couple on their wedding day. Ok, Ok… sometimes I will ask you for a few poses, but nothing weird or overly classic. I don’t like to force the moment.
Can we give you a list of photographs we want you to take? I don’t like bridezilla lists! Most of the time that list describes family pictures with bride/groom, general details and moments we as photographers usually shoot. We will discuss your requests during our meeting in the days leading up to the wedding.
What about food? You are not obligated to feed me, but it’s always nice to eat a sandwich and fries to recharge batteries for the hours to come!
Read what people said about us! =)
From start to finish our experience was effortless. You both made us feel comfortable, made it easy for everyone, and most importantly fun! You both worked non-stop and caught great angles and utilized every minute of the day to capture the right moments. You are such passionate people who truly love your jobs and it shows. The pictures truly tell the story of our wedding from start to finish. We’ve received SO many compliments on all of our photos. We couldn’t have asked for better photographers. We hope to hire you again in the future!!!.

From the very beginning you were very warm and welcoming and enthusiastic for us and the upcoming events we had hired you for. You managed to capture the energy and candidness of everything which is what we ultimately wanted! Our guests were so impressed by how you were underneath chairs or climbing trees and doing whatever was necessary to get a great shot. They loved socializing with you and seeing you work! From the rehearsal to the TTD, we have a wonderful timeline of photos to remember the event by. The final touched up photos are beautiful and artistic and the love in the workmanship shines through in every one. We absolutely love and adore almost every image from our TTD shoot and appreciate your flexibility with us when Giancarlo got sick. Everyone who sees those pictures have to physically close their mouths with their hands because they’re so beautiful.

We felt comfortable and confident with choosing Dennis Berti and Chio as our photographers from the very first email. After we meet them for the first time we felt completely as ease and couldn’t stop saying how we knew we have chosen the right photographers. Dennis and Chio instantly felt like friends and we were thrilled to see them on our wedding day. They almost had a calming effect on any nervousness that may have been there and they were so much fun!
They knew exactly where and how to take the most amazing pictures and to capture the most beautiful moments. And at the end, we were sad to see them go. They were very professional but added a great element to our wedding. I feel like Dennis committed a lot of his time after the wedding to getting our pictures together and we were in receipt of them faster than we had expected and they were wonderful!

We cried when we viewed our photos! Dennis and Chio helped to make our wedding most memorable with their fun personalities and easiness from behind the lens.
Photography was one of the most important aspects of planning. After viewing Dennis’ website and online gallery, we knew he was the right choice. Both photographers share an artistic perspective of natural, fun, memorable moments. The entire process of selecting Dennis was made easy through emails and in person upon arriving at our destination wedding. Time spent getting to know one another was reassuring.
Our wedding day began with Dennis and Chio’s enthusiasm getting right to work. Family and friends could not say enough good things about how well the two worked together as a team. ALL of our photos are more than we ever expected!
These two became more than just our photographers, but also are Cabo friends.

As a professional photographer, I am suuuuuuper picky when it comes to choosing a photographer for personal purposes. As soon as my fiance and I decided on Cabo for a wedding destination I was on the internet searching for photographers. I just assumed we would have to fly a photographer out from the states to capture our special day. I made posts on Facebook asking friends for recommendations, I read reviews, I was on it. Forget the dress or anything else. I needed a photographer.
I started searching online for Cabo photographers. To my surprise, there were a ton to choose from. But, like I said, I am picky. I was looking for a photographer that had the ability to capture the essence of a relationship, candid moments, and the personality of the subjects photographed. Someone that focused on the details, without forgetting the big picture. On top of that, I also wanted a professional that recognized good camera angles, had experience with photoshop, and had good reliable equipment (The list goes on). I wanted a photographer with unique style that was artistic, and consistent… DENNIS BERTI! I found you! Not only did Dennis have all the abilities listed above, but he has an unbelievably fun and genuine personality, that makes the entire photography experience smooth, and fun. He is confident and reassuring, gives great direction and provides support through the entire experience.
My fiance and I met with Dennis and Chio (a total sweetheart) in Cabo this last week to organize our upcoming wedding. We met with Dennis for our engagement session and had an incredible time and left with BEAUTIFUL and FUN pictures that captured the EXACT essence of our relationship. Thank you Dennis!! Dennis provided us with the photographs and copyright release immediately after he selected and edited the images. He was prompt, professional and, above all, an extremely talented photographer.
Looking forward to the wedding pictures. We know we will love them!
Let me start off by saying that, on average, there are 5 rainy days in Cabo a year. The day of our photoshoot was one of those days.
Of course I was worried, no blue sky, no clear blue water and my hair would be a mess with all the humidity. The only reason we came to Cabo was to have our picture taken with Dennis and Chio. While researching for wedding photographers in Mexico, I found their blog and immediately fell in love with their work. The pictures are like works of art, they tell a story, they show emotion and they are NOTHING like any other wedding pictures I’ve ever seen. Communication with Dennis, from the first time we contacted him ’til today, was (is) excellent. You can be sure to expect an enthusiastic response the same day.
We met with Dennis and Chio the day before the photo shoot and with a series of questions they put us at ease and determined exactly what we wanted. The minute we started our photo shoot the weather and the rain was the last thing on my mind. We seriously had so much fun. These guys are truly amazing at what they do! The pictures were taken at 2 locations, a restaurant and the beach, however it seems like they were taken at 12 different locations! They came out so amazing and beautiful and are everything I wanted and more. When I’m old and I look at them I probably won’t even remember that it was raining that day.
They are that good. If you want pictures that are unique, that will stand out and that will tell the story of you and your partner as it’s never been told before, you cannot go wrong with Dennis Berti Wedding Photography.
Please check out their website so you can fall in love, as I did, with their beautiful work!
