Information Costa Rica wedding photographer

What do I get?
In average, our clients can expect about 60 to 75 photos per hour of coverage.

We only eliminate photos that are extremely unflattering, or where there are blinking eyes, mouths mid-sentence or eating, or if we’re experimenting and something doesn’t turn out (like writing a sentence and erasing something). We also sometimes take five frames in a flurry if something is happening quickly. In this case, we would give you the best of a series so you don’t have a million photos that only change by a fraction of a second. But at the same time, we aren’t going to discard a photo of your aunt just because we don’t deem it “artistic” enough.

In terms of copyright, you will receive a printed copyright notice that will tell your photo lab that you have rights to make prints or photo products with the images. The only thing you can’t do is sell the images for a profit without permission (for instance, you can’t sell the image to an advertising agency to use in an ad campaign).


Do you edit our photos before we get them?
Absolutely Yes. All photos delivered to our clients are digitally retouched to achieve optimal skin tones, contrast and saturation. A special selection of the photos will be delivered to the client in Black & White. All photos come in high resolution ready to print as well as in low resolution for easy sharing.

We take great pride in our image editing and spend about four to five hours polishing your images for every one hour of photography. And while we clean up blemishes and fix up skin on important close-up portraits and photos, you’re still going to look like yourself.


Can you “photoshop us to make us look younger and thiner”?
For maximum results, our work includes professional color correction and some minor photo retouching such as skin softening in close ups when needed; however, to ensure you still look like yourself, we do not offer or recommend extreme photo alterations via Photoshop as part of our services. Additional photo editing can be purchased as an extra.


How do I get my photographs?
Your photographs are sent via Internet download.


How long it takes to receive my photos/video?
Ussually it takes about 5 weeks to process the photos , but we will provide you with some sneak peek while you’re waiting for your images.


 What is your approach to photographing weddings?
We work hard to cater our photography to reflect YOU. We all have a relaxed approach that will ensure you have a natural smile, not a forced one. Rather than stiff and formal posing, we believe in providing you directions that will have you and your guests feeling as comfortable as possible. We love to photograph in a variety of styles and we offer a mix of candid photojournalism, fashion, something artsy and funky, or anything in between.

Can you hold a date or make a tentative booking?
A retainer fee is required to officially book the date. However, if you’re in the midst of planning and you still need to work on some details we’ll make note of it in our calendar and get in touch with you if someone else seems serious about the same date. But if we haven’t heard from you in several weeks we will assume you may have found someone else or your plans have changed. We don’t like pestering.


We definitely want to book you! What’s the next step?
Awesome! I´m very glad and happy to become your photographer. A retainer fee of $100 is required to officially book the date. You can do the retainer fee throught PayPal.

What methods of payment do you accept?
I accept cash and PayPal.

Do you offer meetings in person as part of your services?

Due to high amount of travel, meetings in person before your wedding is not a service we can offer, however, we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have via emailo or telephone 011+506+8825-8865


Do I get to keep the digital images?
Absolutely. We provide you with high-resolution, printable images that are not resized. This means we leave the resolution the way it comes out of the camera and photos will blow up to beyond poster size. We only eliminate photos that are extremely unflattering, or where there are blinking eyes, mouths mid-sentence or eating, or if we’re experimenting and something doesn’t turn out. We also sometimes take five frames in a flurry if something is happening quickly. In this case, we would give you the best of a series so you don’t have a million photos that only change by a fraction of a second. But at the same time, we aren’t going to discard a photo of your aunt just because we don’t deem it “artistic” enough.

In terms of copyright, you will receive a printed copyright notice that will tell your photo lab that you have rights to make prints or photo products with the images. The only thing you can’t do is sell the images for a profit without permission (for instance, you can’t sell the image to an advertising agency to use in an ad campaign).


Do you still take formal traditional family portraits (with everyone looking at the camera and smiling)?

Absolutely! We always ensure we take photos of the groups that are important to you and we also take more traditional look-at-the-camera-and-smile photos of you as a couple, plus everyone in the wedding party. We know these are important photos for families and they don’t take long to accomplish.

If I send you my Pinterest board will you duplicate photos?
We love Pinterest and we love to see your boards to get an idea of the styles that appeal to you. But we do kindly suggest that boards are used as inspiration only. We want to create one-of-a-kind images of your wedding that reflect who you are as a couple. When we’re asked to duplicate another photographer’s work it takes extra time and effort. Plus, you’ll love your photos way more if they’re unique than if you have a carbon copy of someone else’s wedding photo. Our goal is to give you photos that other people will pin!


What if it rains?

We will always have a rain plan and we have lots of tricks we can use to incorporate the rain creatively in your photos. However, we do suggest that you plan for rain as well… Some couples have provided their wedding party with matching umbrellas. This is an awesome idea in case of bad weather.

Do you recommend any website for printing wedding books?
Yes, we recommend our clients check:

  • https://www.shutterfly.com/
