“We could not be more in love with our elopement photos and we had such an amazing time going with the flow and being in the moment during this shoot. You are so amazing and you made us feel so comfortable by giving us the direction we needed while still allowing things to be organic. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. We are forever grateful for these memories”

“If you want to make sure that your special day is captured beautifully, look no further! Javier is hands down the best Costa Rica wedding photographer we have ever worked with and nobody compares to their keen eye for detail and making you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process”

“We're so happy that Javier was a part of the best day of our lives. He truly made us feel at ease and captured the natural love and joy of the entire day. We never felt self-conscious, which allowed us and all of our guests to relax and act naturally. We could not be happier with how all of the photos turned out which we will cherish forever”
