The best memories to celebrate our 20th anniversary

I found Jose’s profile on Facebook and instantly fell in love with his vision, art and attention to capture the most beautiful images. I knew I wanted him to capture my husband and I’s 20th wedding anniversary with our kids on the beautiful island of San Pedro, Belize. He was so helpful to help me navigate this day from the US in every way, such as transportation to the ‘sandbar’ and timing out photos perfectly with weather and sunset. Jose was always attentive to my messages and questions. He was excited to try new things also, which we are so grateful for. We 100% recommend Jose and thank him so much for making this milestone perfect!

10/10 amazing experience with Jose for our Belize wedding!

Once we decided to get married in Belize, I knew we had to have Jose as our photographer and he and his wife did an AMAZING job! They were responsive, and captured our small wedding so beautifully, going above and beyond by creating a highlight video for us and making sure to get all the shots I had wanted. It did take awhile to get our photos back, but they were so worth the wait! We had so many amazing shots to choose from -- my favorite were actually the candids -- captured the vibe of the day so well. Forever thankful that we have these memories!
