    Such a talented team!

    We are so happy that we chose Sylvia as our wedding photographer!! She did such an amazing job and we love how our photos turned out. They caught the emotions we wanted and really listened to what was important to us. We were also worried about finding a photographer who knew how to photograph an interracial couple well and she did a great job and we’ve found it’s not easy for most photographers. Super talented!!

    Excellent demeanor, super professional!

    Sylvia and her team were thorough, flexible, and made the take magical! I haven't even seen all the photos yet, but trust that they will be fantastic. We felt very taken care of by her team. The team even stayed late to accommodate our schedule. They were kind and professional and I enjoyed working with them!

    Highly Recommend

    We came to Costa Rica for a vacation and decided we wanted to have some photos taken while visiting. Sylvia and Josue were great to work with. They were responsive, on time, and we had a fun getting our photos taken. We got our photos back in a timely manner and we are very pleased with them!

    Sylvia Guardia's reply:

    Thank you Madeline!!!!! It was a pleasure to work with you as well! Hope you enjoyed your stay in Costa Rica !!! Please visit us again soon :)

Sylvia Guardia
Main Photographer

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!

Always working to improve her craft and offering different perspectives. A great all around professional!!!
