Costa Rica wedding photographer

“We cannot thank you enough for your outstanding work, and we highly recommend you to anyone in need of a talented and professional photographer. We would be happy to work with you again in the future, and we are so grateful for the amazing job you did on our wedding day.

Thank you again for everything!”

"Javier managed to capture every moment of our special day with a light, hopeful yet classical touch.

Javier was always discreet leaving you relaxed and unaware of the camera's presence but yet the moments he eternalized were both genuine and intimate. There is not one single photo taken where we do not sense the strong emotions in the scene, from the grand to the details, until today his images still evoke the very same emotions as from our wedding day every time we look at them.”

- Laurel and Daniel

"Javier Mendez is hands down the best wedding photographer in the business. Not only was I blown away at how gorgeous the photos were, he is extremely professional and I trusted him completely (which is hard for a type A person like me!). The way his photographs catch the light…just breathtaking. He is so great to work with, and makes you look like a natural in front of the camera. He listens to what you want, and delivers, above and beyond your wildest dreams."

- Danielle and mark

"These photos are show stopping, stunning, gorgeous, amazing, breathtaking, unbelievable, joyful, truthful, and just pure bliss. I cannot get over how much we love every single photo. Literally, there’s not one that we don’t like. Going through the photos, I am immediately transported back to our special day. I am obsessed beyond words!!"

"Javier is a true artist- he takes the task of wedding photographer very seriously but also managed to make me laugh and enjoy the whole process.
From our very first meeting to the last photo snapped at the wedding, Javier made me feel comfortable, beautiful and at ease, knowing we had put the most important job at our wedding into expert hands."

My partner doesn't like being in front of the camera. Is that okay?

That is totally fine! My couples tell me this all the time, and we always end up having so much fun. It's my job to make you both feel as comfortable as possible. I am big on giving guidance throughout the shoot and will never just leave you guys standing there not knowing what to do
