Best of the best

I could seriously write a novel here. I loved Rob and Lori and am so happy we met them. They are such great souls and take beyond amazing pictures. They made me feel so comfortable and my husband as well. Hoping we get to see them again in the future cause they are great people and we enjoyed time with them. So much that we even tried to see them the next day after our wedding. Highly recommend them for photos that tell a story specially if it’s a love story 🤍 and for being comfortable and having the pictures you can only dream of. They look like they should be in a magazine.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND RAW SHOOTS to any couple who is looking for a photographer for their wedding day in Costa Rica!

Rob and Lori were AMAZING to work with! We helped hire them for a beautiful couple of ours who decided to do a destination wedding in Las Catalinas, Costa Rica. From the start, Rob and Lori were incredibly welcoming and knowledgable! We had a zoom call to get to know them and instantly we knew they were going to be the ones to capture the wedding day!

Leading up to the wedding they were very helpful with giving insight to the timeline we had prepared, very responsive to emails and messages, and overall were always very positive and excited to get to work the day with us!

On the wedding day, their team was early, and knew exactly what to do, and where to go. They needed no prompting from our team. They were ALWAYS busy snapping photos and paying attention details and most importably capturing everything that the bride and groom were wanting.

I hope we get to work with them in the future! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND RAW SHOOTS to any couple who is looking for a photographer for their wedding day in Costa Rica!

If you’re looking for in the moment/ action photos these are your people. Rob and Lauri were patient, kind and very knowledgeable of the area and the best places to shoot. We had so much fun. I absolutely hate photos but they somehow made me enjoy taking them! Highly recommend this couple for any big event or wedding.
