Let’s Talk About my Philosophy

The only rule I follow is to help you feel like your truest and most beautiful self in your photos. This isn’t just something I do for a job - I do it because everyone deserves images that make them feel that way.

My style is heavily focused on real moments and captures the authentic beauty of Costa Rica. I am not going to make you do any weird stuff that feels forced. Nothing staged, nothing set up, no awkward half-smile. It's real good stuff. We create together


Planning a relaxed and intimate wedding at the beach? Eloping?
Wanna dance and drink all night long? I don't know your plans yet but I'm in


Your choice to get married in Costa Rica was a great one. Now that you’ll be there, enjoy every minute of it.

I'd love to work with you on making this happen in a way that feels Pura Vida

Sincerely,

What do You Think, Sounds Like We Make a Good Match?

I'll be honored. Please follow the next step to book with us

1. To check our availability on your wedding day, please send us an email as soon as possible. The number of weddings we shoot each year is limited. Booking sooner secures your date

2. If I am available I will be so happy to work with you. If you think is necessary we can set up a video call so I can answer all of your questions and know each other a little bit more. When everything is clear, I will need some basic information from you in order to send you the contract

3. After the contract has been signed, I will send you an invoice via PayPal to your email where you can pay the retainer (30%)

4. Just like that we are more than ready. Some weeks before the wedding we could set up a video call or just chat to make sure everything is running smoothly.
I am totally open when my couples want to ask me any questions. Believe me, I am just excited as you are
