CHOOSING AN EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Many of our guests stay in our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or other special event.  And while we can promise that your stay at Pinnacle Resorts will be memorable, you may want to consider hiring a photographer for your event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Having hosted many public and charity events, our Pinnacle Resorts team has some suggestions for choosing a photographer in Puerto Vallarta for your special occasion. 

Request a full portfolio – don’t be taken in by just a handful of photographs from a website. A professional, experienced photographer should have an extensive portfolio showing many different types and styles of work. 

Talk budget – have a clear idea of what you are willing to spend on photography in Puerto Vallarta and remember, that price can often reflect quality.  

What’s your style – talk to your photographer about how you want your Puerto Vallarta wedding or event captured, be it traditional posed portraits or more spontaneous, casual images. 

Personality – During your event, the photographer will interact with your guests and it is important that he or she is professional, serious and focused on capturing and creating amazing images. 

Talk to our Pinnacle Resorts concierge staff for suggestions about photographers and other ways that we can make your special event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta even more memorable.

PET-FRIENDLY AT PINNACLE RESORTS

By

Did you know that our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone are pet-friendly? In fact, Pinnacle Resorts is one of the few pet-friendly resorts in Puerto Vallarta, so your best furry friend is always more than welcome. We have a few pet-travel tips to help make your journey to Puerto Vallarta as easy as possible, for you and your pet.

  • Although not all airlines require it, if possible, book a direct flight.
  • As per Mexican regulations, have a full travel health certificate from your veterinarian dated within 10 days of your arrival to Puerto Vallarta.
  • Be sure that your pet carrier is large enough in size for your pet and make sure that your pet is familiar and comfortable being in the carrier well in advance of your travel date.
  • Do not feed your pet 4 hours prior to your trip, and if you are able, add a collapsible water bottle with a few ice cubes in the pet carrier, to work as a time-release water system.

And, of course, once you arrive, you will want other travelers to love your pet as much as you do, so remember to be courteous:

  • Always keep your pet leashed in public areas and respect non-pet areas and restaurants.
  • Use only designated potty areas and remember to pick up after your pet.
