How to choose your wedding photographer?

Choosing the right photographer for your wedding can be a difficult task. But don’t worry, we’re here to help! We’ve put together some tips that will help you find the perfect match.

1. Choose the photographer according to your style

You want to create memories that will last forever, so choose a photographer who can help you do that. The best way to do this is by looking at their previous work and seeing what kind of style they have. If you love bright colors, make sure that you’re talking with a photographer who uses them often. If you want candid shots of everything happening around you, find someone who has a lot of experience with natural light photography.

For example in this shoot with Manee & Andrew, we took advantage of the cloudy day and take spectacular pictures in the mystic and green scenery that Guanacaste’s beaches have.

2. Hire a local photographer can help you to find the best spots

When choosing a wedding photographer, it’s important that they know the area well so they can suggest locations that are perfect for photos. A local photographer will also know where to find good lighting and how long it takes for different weather conditions to change throughout the day — all things that could affect your session if you hire someone who lives far away from where your ceremony and reception are taking place. Costa Rica has become a very attractive place for destination weddings and planning abroad can be exhausted…venues, videographer, make up artist, flowers..anything you need, I can help you with all of that! I will be with you in the entire process, making your life easier!

Absolutely Amazing!!!!

“…Mariana did such an amazing job for our wedding photos. We couldn’t have picked a more perfect person to help capture our day. She made the whole experience fun and effortless, from the planning to the execution. 
She was great at helping telling us what to do to get the most perfect photos. The quality and details of the photos far exceeded our expectations! She got all the special details and really helped us relive the day through the photos. We couldn’t be happier! She is very talented.
