Lidia Grosso Photography, Cancun, Mexico and International. Playa delfines 360x240


Originally from Turin, Italy, I settled in Cancun in 2006 after travelling the world training and working as a photographer. During the early days of my travels, I had the opportunity to  work for reputable hospitality companies such as Club Med and Starwood – where I acquired valuable experience in the tourism industry and began to cultivate my photography skills.

In 2004, I decided to focus full time on photography and began my career in the Bahamas on Paradise Island.  After spending some time further crafting my talent, in 2006 I got my own photo concession inside Club Med Cancun. I founded Photosmile SA de CV shortly afterward in 2007 and two years later, I became an independent photographer and launched my first website. 

I built a very extensive portfolio and I have photographed  + 400 weddings and +1000  families during the past 10 years and I have been featured in the bridal Canadian Magazines: Today’s Bride and Wedding Vacations. 

Since becoming an independent photographer I have been running my own company and I have been fortunate enough to be able to divide my time between Mexico and Italy, mainly during the summer. I am also always open to any assignment that takes me outside Cancun and in that case, I have partnered with a talented team of associates in order to provide reliable, high-quality service year round.

My associates and I have been very successful, all thanks to the many clients that have trusted in my services!

One more thing!  I speak 4 beautiful languages!  Si  vous avez besoin di informazioni por favor contactenme!! πŸ™‚

    don’t know where to begin… Lidia is absolutely amazing at what she does. My wife and I met her when I did a surprise proposal on the beach in 2016. She was very professional, kept my secret, captured everything BEAUTIFULLY and response time to give us the pictures was incredibly fast.
    When it came to planning our wedding, we weren’t sure of anything else except that we would go to the ends of the earth to make sure that she was our photographer for that day. Luckily for us, she was just as excited as we were to ask her! The planning began and like I said before, she is soo fast as responding!! She was planning along with us and asked if we would like another photographer (because we were two brides that was important for us) and a videographer. We said no to the video originally, but turned out we splurged and LOVED THE VIDEO! Her recommendation to hire her colleagues was amazing!
    As far as the wedding went, we still have no words. She bounced between 2 rooms for both of us and captured exactly what we wanted. Just when you think you don’t remember something about your day, Lidia made sure she captured it. Her photos are by far the best I have ever seen, truly breath taking and beautiful.
    She is now officially apart of our family and we are so blessed to have met her and crossed paths. You will not be disappointed by Lidia’s skills, beautiful personality, and fun loving spirit! She is a must hire for ALL of your photography needs.

    Lidia- thank you so much for all you did for Kayla and I. We love you and words can never describe what you mean to us!!!

    • Thank you so much Rachel and Kayla!! I will never thank you enough for all you did to get me there and for believing in my photography! Love you both too!! πŸ™‚

  • Josh Pereira

    I contacted Lidia Grosso after reading many reviews about the many photographers available in Cancun for a photo shoot. I made the right decision in choosing Lidia because she responded to my emails and questions promptly and she spoke fluent English, a plus for me as I didn’t speak Spanish.
    Lidia made my whole family feel at ease during the photo session and also accommodated our request for certain “must have” shots. That made us feel that she had our interest in snapping the best photos that evening. My whole family are very happy with the high quality photos we just received after returning from our vacation and we would highly recommend Lidia to anyone visiting Cancun and wants to have their photos taken by a professional, creative and reliable photographer. Thank you Lidia once again for making our Cancun vacation extra special!

    We are so happy that we found Lidia on google. She went above and beyond to provide us with a fun and creative photo shoot for our family of 6. Lidia has such amazing ideas and is able to capture beautiful and unique expressions. Lidia was able to find perfect ways to give us over 100 fabulous photos! Lidia has such a sweet and genuine personality she makes it very easy for even the most camera shy to relax and have fun. Lidia is a talented artist, the BEST photographer that we have ever worked with and we would use her again in a heartbeat!

  • Robin McKinnon

    I first found out about Photosmile Photography from an online search. We were traveling to Cancun and wanted to have family portraits done. Lidia made the entire process so very easy! The photo shoot with two young kids was effortless and FUN! She has an exceptional eye for photography and I feel very lucky to have had booked her twice for family portraits! We will continue to use her services whenever we are in Mexico. Cannot rave enough about her talent and the ease of working with her. You will not be disappointed!!!

  • Sonali and Harshad

    Lidia is an awesome photographer! Not only did she take some fabulous everlasting family photographs for us, but she was also very patient and accommodating, our Mexico trip was last minute decision and we didn’t have much time to plan.

    We received the photos promptly from her. Later due to backup disk crash, we lost the photos – but Lidia relieved us by re-sending the photos. She is quick to respond and a pleasure to work with. She is good with kids too – our daughter enjoyed and felt comfortable during the photo shoot! Thanks again for giving us memories in print that will last a lifetime.

  • Prabha and Seby

    We love the family pictures that Lidia did for us. She captured great moments and the location was perfect for the various family portraits. The pictures were provided to us quickly and had great quality. Thank you Lidia for a great job and for managing us and the 3 kids.

    She sent us photos so quickly and you can tell she loves what she does. She is great at it! She captured everything about our special moment and we get to relive these moments forever now and I will be eternally grateful!!!
    We are flying you in for the wedding!!! πŸ™‚ thank you thank you thank you!!!!

  • The Smith’s

    We’re so happy we decided to have Lidia take pictures of us on our 25th Anniversary trip to Mexico. We wanted to have pictures done not only for us, but to surprise our adult kids. She was so nice and made two people who hate having their pictures taken feel at ease. I would highly recommend recommend her! Thanks for everything LIdia!

    • Thank you so much for chosing my photography and for going through the trouble with the hotel fee! I hope to see you again with your kids!! Thank you!!

  • Sumedha Beniwal

    Lidia took pictures of my family – my husband and I and our 2 little girls. She was an absolute joy to work with and our pictures came out stunning! Each one of them! Despite the kids getting cranky and terrible weather, Lidia somehow managed to make every shot look great and super natural. She is a great talent and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to get beautiful pictures taken!

    • Thank you so much Sumedha! It was a joy for me to work with your family and beautiful girls! Thank you for playing along with me despite the weather! I hope to see you soon again in the area!

  • Vanessa Zeng

    Lidia was a pleasure to work with for our photo session. She is
    always prompt to respond to my E-mails while being professional,
    accommodating, and friendly. Lidia made our session so much fun. She was
    patient and made us feel comfortable, while also listening to our input
    on the style of pictures we wanted and locations we had already picked
    that we thought would work well. We love the pictures she
    captured of us on our honeymoon. We thought she did an awesome job at
    capturing natural moments that show our love for each other. We received
    our pictures in the time frame she gave us and her rate was very
    competitive compared to other photographers in the area. She is very
    talented and creative and it really shows in her work. Thank you, Lidia
    for our beautiful pictures we will cherish forever. We hope to see you
    again in the near future!

    That’s all I can say. You did an AMAZING job!! You exceeded my already high expectations. The angles, the lighting, the poses…everything was on point. I know it must have been difficult with so many groups of people and so many kids. But, you really outdid yourself.
    Feel free to post any of those photos. I believe everyone should see what you are capable of doing.

    Lidia traveled to our family vacation home in Puerto Morelos last year to photograph our family. Her beautiful pictures now decorate the walls of my home.

I will definitely contact her to capture our family throughout the years!!

    We loved working with Lidia! She has a great sense of style and a wonderful eye for beautiful shots.

With the enormous list of requested photos in addition to candids at all the various events we had – you handled them all effortlessly.

Thank you so much!

    We had a wonderful photo session with Lidia! This was our follow up Babymoon trip (and second photo session with Lidia) – now with our sweet little boy (7 months) and two grandmas and one grandpa! Lidia fit us in, and took some amazing family pictures! This was the one “MUST” I had to have on our trip to Cancun! She is AMAZING!!!! She took the extra time to make sure my hair was blowing the right way, that no straps were showing, etc. All the little things that make priceless pictures!! Thank you for capturing this very special time in our lives. xo Sarah, Rigo & Baby J

    We contacted Lidia at Photosmile for some family pictures in Cancun, and are extremely pleased with the service. Pricing was simple and straightforward. We communicated effortlessly via email before arriving in Cancun to set a date, time, and location that was convenient for all of us. Lidia sent Natalia to us for the shoot who was a pleasure to work with. We received the pictures within a week of the shoot; they are beautiful and professional. She succeeded in capturing our family’s personality. I highly recommend Photosmile as a photography service, and hope to use it again in the future. Thank you Lidia and Natalia!
