Sylvia and her team were incredible! I can't say enough great things about them. My husband and I really are not big on taking pictures but she made it a lot of fun. She also captured a lot of precious candid moments that we will cherish forever. She was finished with the album so much quicker than I anticipated and I really don't have a single bad thing to say about the pictures. They delivered a big variety of pictures and have so many cute unique poses to help make incredible pictures. There is no way anyone could be disappointed in their work! Trust me, you want to hire Sylvia, it will be worth every penny.Sent on 04/14/2021

Photos to last a lifetime
When picking a photographer I did lots of research. I looked at many websites, instagrams, facebooks, and reviews. When I was told about Sylvia I stopped looking. The reviews alone were why we picked her. We were in contact throughout COVID and she always was excited about our big day. We did not actually meet Sylvia until our wedding day. Even meeting for just that first time it was effortless. She was very professional and fun. Our session was perfect and she knew exactly what we wanted. She made sure to keep asking if there was anything else. We received our sneak peak within 48 hours!!!! I was beyond impressed! THE PHOTOS!!!! Man were they beautiful. She captured the light and the best backdrops a girl could ask for. I cannot wait to see the rest of them as I know I won’t be able to choose our favorites. I know that when we go back to Costa Rica and need photos taken, I will definitely be reaching out to her again.Sent on 02/02/2021

Sylvia is an absolute gem and always at the top of the list in our recommendations to couples.
Sylvia is an absolute gem and always at the top of the list in our recommendations to couples. We have worked with Sylvia for many events over the years, she is the perfect mix of friendly, fun, and professional that helps couples really feel at ease on their wedding day. Her style perfectly captures the beauty of Costa Rica, with vibrant colors and amazing attention to detail - in a timeless style that will look beautiful on client's walls for years to come. She works seamlessly with her video partners, and the years of experience they have together is evident both day-of and in the results. The quality service she delivers is unmatched - waiting for wedding photos can be agonizing and I love seeing our clients bypass that entirely with Sylvia. She delivers a sneak peek gallery (with a LOT of photos!) within a couple of days - sometimes even the next day - talk about instant gratification! The consistently amazing service and stunning photos that Sylvia provides her clients is priceless and we can't sing her praises enough! - The Mil Besos TeamSent on 04/13/2020

My interest in photography rose at a very early age, through my mom, and I have felt passionate about it ever since. I'm a professional wedding photographer based in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
I have been living in Playas del Coco for over 12 years and specializing in destination wedding photography for over 13 years. I love natural light. I love that you will never experience the same light twice, and I take this to my advantage to create unique photographs for my couples!
I get inspired by the different sunsets, beaches and venues; and of course by the couples that simply shine on their special day. I focus a lot of my attention on details, moments, emotions and composition.
I love my job, and I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do!
Sylvia is by far one of the most talented photographers in Costa Rica, her professionalism and passion is reflected on very photo she takes. I highly recommend hiring her. As a wedding planner, I am always looking for the vendor that can make me shine and Sylvia does it every time :)!!
Sylvia is one of the most talented and kind-hearted photographers we get the chance to work with. Couples not only love her work but also her calm and sweet nature, which makes them feel relaxed in front of the camera (which inevitably results in fabulous photographers). Always working to improve her craft and offering different perspectives. A great all around professional!!!
