Frequent Ask Questions

How would you describe your photography approach?

In simple terms, we are documentary wedding photographers with a little bit of a romantic vibe, and a little fashion & editorial mood, we get a little bit of here and there. We really enjoy documenting the vibe of your wedding day without adding artificial ingredients, just capturing moments as they naturally unfold, providing gentle and natural directions during portrait times. We want you to spend your day having fun not posing for photos, we love all those emotions full of spontaneous laughs and corky dances that happen during every wedding.

Do you guys always shoot together?

Yes, we do. The only reason that we don't shoot together during a wedding or a session it's because one of us got sick or something like that, but besides that, we go to every wedding and session together. Even so, if one of us can not go we go with another awesome photographer so you can be sure that there will always be two photographers covering your day.

What would it be working with you?

We are really easy-going people, and avoid all the awkward moments, we really want you to think of us more like 2 guests with cameras than actual photographers, we feel that people get much more comfortable this way and we can capture much more genuine moments. During the wedding day we love to capture all the unscripted moments and how you and your guests really felt. During the couples photo session, we will just give you natural directions so you guys can get an idea and be in the mood so you can start showing us all those real laughs and emotions. The rest of the day we keep mostly documenting everything that is happening around.

What kind of couples do you normally work with?

Our couples are the best!! In a few words our couples love photos and want great memories without compromising the natural flow of the day, if you care more about real, candid and emotional photos and care less about the staged/perfect hair images, we are going to be a perfect fit.

This will be our first time doing a photo session and having cameras all around us, so this might feel awkward, will you give us a hand?

Totally, we will help you out all the way since the beginning.

In order to capture lovely pictures you need to enjoy the moment, be confident and have fun with us, we are really easy going people so we'll not make you feel uncomfortable or awkward, instead, we will guide you with little tips to get these lovely moments between you two, by the end of the shoot you will feel like a pro without even thinking about it.

For couple/engagement photos we normally take a couple of hours, most of the time by the end of the afternoon so we can get the best light, we don't like to rush things out, so we want you to take your time, enjoy it and laugh.

For wedding portraits, the ideal for us is a minimum of 30min, this way you won't feel so stressed and can take things slow and nice, during this time we want you to enjoy it, take a break from all the noise and stress of the wedding, and have this time for you two, realize what just happened and share your feelings and love.

What do you include in your Wedding Collections?

Our Collections goes from 3h for small weddings and elopements up to 9h or more for longer weddings with a lot of activities, each of our Collections includes: two full time photographers, web and high resolutions images ( yes!!, we don't charge you extra for HQ images), some 5x7 high quality grade prints, a nice wooden box, a wooden USB key with the web and print versions of your images, a private online gallery that you can share with your friends and family, and also includes our transportation and accommodation to your wedding venue in Costa Rica so you don't have to worry about anything else.

We also include a pre-wedding consultation video call, to talk about your plans, ideas for the wedding, suggestions and the most important part, to meet you!

Besides this, you can also add extra coverage like engagement/couple sessions, rehearsal dinner, day after wedding session, wedding album, etc.

How long do you guys take to deliver the photographs?

This is a tricky question, for weddings in most cases we take 8 weeks to deliver the all gallery, but sometimes if the load of work is heavy during our peak season we might take a little bit more. For a couple session the time varies from 4 to 6 weeks. We always try to give you some preview images as fast as we can so you can share with your family, friends or post in your social media.

How do we receive the photographs?

Once the images are totally edited, we will upload the photographs to a private online gallery that you will have access with a password, also if it is a wedding service we will ship a lovely wooden box to your address, this box contains a USB key with all HQ images, several prints, and a print release card so you can print any of the delivered images without any problem. Depending on the destination of the shipping and the time it takes on customs the delivery time might vary from location to location.

Do you guys edit all the photos?

During a wedding we can take between 5000 to 7000 photographs, this depends on a lot of factors such as hours of coverage, entertainment, number of guests, available light, weather, etc, and from this lot of photos we hand pick and edit every single photo that you receive by ourselves, this culling and editing process of our service is something that we really put effort on so you will receive a product made 100% by us and that is totally under our control.

Do you guys deliver images in black and white?

Yes we do, we love black and white, we feel that black and white images are timeless and nostalgic, so having these images in our final delivery is something that we normally do.

Are the photographs watermarked?

No, we like to keep our images clean, so all of our images are delivered without watermarks or frames.

Can we see a full wedding that you guys photographed?

Sure you can, it is really important for us that you see as much as you can of our work so you can have a complete idea of what we can deliver and what you can expect from our work, don't hesitate to check our blog entries you can get a good idea of what we shoot during the weddings.

Can we provide you with a "shot list"?

Because we are more into the documentary style, we don't really work with shot lists up front, but as you can see in our galleries we take care of details, candid shots and all the key moments. There is one list that we really appreciate and is a small list of people for the "formal portraits", you know the ones with parents, grandparents, close friends, etc, one tip that helps a lot is to tell one of your friends to help calling the people for each shot, this is basically because for us it will be very hard to know who is who and it can take longer, but telling a friend to help will speed up the process a lot.

Do you shoot wedding details?

Absolutely, we love wedding details and we are sure you love them too. It is a shame spending so much money and time and not having memories of the details that you choose for this day. For this, you just have to take in consideration a little bit of time for us to take care of the shots before the guests arrive at the reception area.

What if you haven't been to my venue, does this affect the work some how?

We have been to a lot of venues in Costa Rica and if we haven't been to one before we always do previous research and go the day before or early during the wedding day so we can check out potential locations and see how the light behaves. So for us, not shooting in a venue before is not a problem at all.

Do you offer engagement/couple sessions?

We do, and we love them. Sometimes couples like to come and check the venue and details several months before their wedding takes place, and that is a great chance to do photos, you can use them for invites to show during the wedding or just to have a lovely memory from your trip. If you are not coming before the wedding day, one popular idea is to do a shoot the day before the wedding in a nearby place, we normally take 1.5h during the sunset and shoot some casual and nice shoots of you two, it is very nice because it gives more story to the wedding and you can have a more relax, confident and enjoyable experience during the wedding day.

We'll love to have a video call with you guys, is this possible?

Absolutely, we'll love to do that too, for us is very very verrryyy important that you meet us in advance, this way once we meet in person you will not feel awkward having us around taking pictures of you like flying mosquitos. We want you to see us more as a friend that shoot great pictures than as a photographer.

Can you hold a date for us?

We'll really love to do that, but we can't do it without a retainer and signed contract. To be fair with all our couples, we work on a first come/first served basis.

We will love to book you, how and when do we do that?

That will be lovely, so, if it is an engagement or couple session you can just click on the CONTACT link and send us a message with the date that you are coming here and also the locations that you are visiting.
