Frequently Asked Questions
Here's a list of common questions couples looking for a wedding photographer generally ask and a list of some they might not think of. If you are looking for a photographer for your destination Costa Rica wedding, make sure you ask as many questions as possible. If answer to your questions are not listed, we'd love to provide you with the answers.
What do You Wear?
Why try not to stick out or dress as if attending a funeral. We favor blacks and whites to avoid color cast and comfy shoes to keep our feet happy while standing most of the day. If you need us to dress formally, we will.
How Much do You Charge?
We're proud to be one of the top wedding photographers in Costa Ria, giving our clients the best in photography, products, and customer care. Our Wedding Collection range from $850.00 for 3 hours of coverage to $3,450 for 12+ hours of coverage.
How do We Book you And make Payments?
We require a 35% booking fee and electronically signed contract. The remainder is split into 2-3 payments with the final one due 10 days before your wedding. The other payment dates depend on the booking date and your wedding date. To see the booking and payment process, watch the the video on our How to Book Us page and the video on the our How to Make Payments page.
How many Photos do You Take?
We don't count, we just shoot. We do take more than necessary since not all photos are winners - there are test shots, someone inevitably blinks, walks in front of the camera, or has an odd facial expression. It's always better to have more than not enough. You'll receive about 80 photos per hour of coverage.
When will we get our pictures?
Typically, in 4-6 weeks. You'll receive a slideshow with wedding-day highlights with your choice of music within 3-4 days so the wait won't seem so long. Sorry! It takes time to edit photos and make sure you have beautiful pictures of your wedding day. We don't take shortcuts.
How will we receive our photos?
A private, online photo gallery that's available for 4 weeks after delivery. Our Your Photo Gallery & Photos page has detailed info about your image files, our photo-editing monitors, and a video about your photo gallery.
Do we have to spend an hour on family photos?
No! We create a portrait shot list with you that weights how much time there is and how many family members there are. This makes it go rather quickly. We can shoot a family portrait session in 15 minutes using the shot list. It takes about 2-5 minutes per group once we're set up.
Do You Charge for Travel & Lodging?
Only for engagements, honeymoon, and anniversary session in Guanacaste and lower Puntarenas. These fees are included in all our Wedding Collection. We do charge a travel fee for weddings if there are wedding-day events that take place at locations not within the same resort, hotel, or venue.
