About

On WeddingWire since 2010

History
Ten pieces of baggage, no friends, no relatives, no idea what to do. That is how Latvian fashion photographer Eva Šica and her husband, graphic designer Kristians Šics, arrived to Mexico in 2008. For the first six months, they lived with a Mexican family, learning the Spanish language, manners, and recipes.
Soon, Eva met project director Pierre Morillon from France at a fashion photo session he was managing; this connection led to the establishment of the PhotoShoots Vallarta studio, and in 2015, it changed its name to Ave Sol.
They also added the invaluable Jessica Téllez to their photography team that same year, whose career is thriving with them to this day.

Now
After 15 years, some 900 weddings later, Eva and Kristians live in their own small fruit jungle with chickens, turkeys, cats, and dogs roaming freely. Their ten-year-old son, Carlos, proudly proclaims himself as a future master photography assistant and editor.

Studio
Ave Sol studio was the first in Puerto Vallarta to deliver photographs to clients within three weeks or less, and every couple is thrilled to receive a sneak-peek gallery on their wedding night. Each image is refined with impeccable attention to detail through their in-house editing process, designed by Kristians Sics. There are no generic filters; Ave Sol chooses to celebrate the natural beauty of colors.

Acomplishments
While Ave Sol has published images in many wedding magazines and blogs over the years, it has been a great career highlight to have the prestigious Carats & Cakes magazine recommend them. Ave Sol has worked with high-end clients such as Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, and Bob Guiney. Each summer, the studio’s team gains fresh inspiration by shooting weddings in Europe, mainly in France and Latvia.

“We love to work with all couples, all traditions, everything outside traditions, same-gender couples, and couples with their own flower girls and ring bearers. Above all is love, which is always astonishingly photogenic,” says Eva.

Eva and Jessica are AMAZING

We met Eva during our wedding visit in 2021 and knew it was an instant fit! Eva and Jessica made us feel so comfortable the entire day and all of the photos showed the day perfectly. They have both shot the W multiple time and we loved that they knew what angles to get. We have looked at our photos every month since the wedding and always love finding a new photo we may not have seen before. I highly recommend Eva and her team!

We could not recommend AveSol enough! Eva and the team were absolutely amazing to work with. So kind, professional, and fun! We loved every single one of our wedding photos that we received. I would give them 100 stars if I could.
