    Cherished Memories!

    We were vacationing in Costa Rica and decided to take engagement photos during our trip. Mariana was amazing to work with! She is professional, responsive, and really fun. She made us very comfortable from the get go. Unfortunately, I didn't see her message until later, but she even provided us with little snippets of our photo sessions on the same day! She is quick to provide the end product as well. I would recommend Mariana in to anyone.

    Mariana is talented, caring, and fun!

    We found Mariana through a quick search and instantly liked with her photo galleries, prices, and ease of communication. After meeting her over Zoom we knew we had the one. We didn鈥檛 know exactly where in Costa Rica we were going to elope but Mariana helped us along our entire process. Even when I was incredibly indecisive, she was flexible and was able to meet us at any location or city we had been deciding between. She provided advice and guidance while never making me feel pressured to rush a decision from a distance. Her passion and love of the Guanacaste region helped us make a final decision to elope in Tamarindo. On the day of our elopement, Mariana was so fun and it felt like we had a true friend photographing our private elopement. After our ceremony, she loaded us up in her vehicle and drove us around town. In our elopement session we received beautiful getting ready photos, ceremony photos, venue photos, beach photos and around town photos. She captured the ideas we had perfectly and she added her own stops on top of the ones we knew we wanted. We loved the playfulness and energy she brought to our day. We received our photographs soon after our elopement as well. It was wonderful being able to share our elopement with family and friends so soon after our return from our trip. We 100% recommend Mariana if you want a fun and adventurous elopement/wedding. She will work with you every step of the way and the photos will be beautiful :)

    Perfection!

    Mariana is incredibly talented! I could not have asked for a better photographer to capture my wedding day. Mariana captured beautiful images and truly special moments. And she was great with guiding my husband and I through our photo shoot. I felt so comfortable with her and immediately trusted her vision. We are absolutely in love with our wedding photos! I would recommend Mariana to anyone looking for someone to capture their special day.

    Amazinggg!

    Mariana's energy is so refreshing! From our first conversation I knew she was the perfect fit for my wedding photographer and Videographer. She was very professional and welcomed any ideas that I had. She captured all the perfect moments, including the fun offguards! You can tell this is a true passion for her because she builds relationships with her clients naturally and has fun while shooting. My wedding was 3 months ago and we still keep in contact! I wish I could bring her to Texas to be my personal photographer for everything, but since I can't, it just gives me another reason to fly to Costa Rica 馃槈
    I can't remember the videographer's name of the top of my head (sorry), but my video was better than I expected. Everyone was blown away! Unfortunately my mom passed 2 months after my wedding, but he captured our first dance and I watch it everyday. The memories this team captured was worth every penny. Thank you so much!!!

As i grew up i decided that the best i can do is to have an amazing lifestyle no matter what, do whatever make me happy and have time enough to be in contact with nature and have time for me, so i can do everything i love: go to the beach every day, enjoy sunsets, time to spend with the ones i love, time to explore hidden spots, cook, yoga, meditate and much more activities that make me feel rooted and with fulfilled spiritually. All this path inspire me to capture images in different locations and backgrounds and connect with my couples in a way that our communication goes beyond the words

Thanks for being here, hope we can meet each other!
