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 8 years, and specializing in destination wedding photography for over 9 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 clients. I get inspired by the different sunsets, beaches, and venues; and of course by the couples that simply shine on this special day. I focus a lot of my attention on the details, moments, emotions and composition. I love my job, and I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do!

Sylvia is absolutely amazing! My husband and I can't believe how lucky we were to have found her. Neither of us are used to being at the center of attention and thought we would be awkward in front of a camera but Sylvia put both of us at ease almost instantly. She helped coordinate the day perfectly so we could utilize all of the amazing light from that day and made sure we were always listened to and got all the photos we wanted. She was so easy to trust and we are so glad we did. We have some truly spectacular pictures as a result! We also couldn't believe how quickly we got our photos! We had a large preview before we even left Costa Rica, and got our remaining gallery less than a month later. We are so thankful for Sylvia and love that we will get to enjoy our beautiful pictures for the rest of our lives.Sent on 02/09/2018

Amazing talent and great to work with!
We were blown away by not only Sylvia’s amazing talent but also how friendly she was and how easy she was to work with. Destination weddings can be nerve wracking but she made everything she could easier and overall a fun experience. Her work speaks for itself. She came as a suggestion by my wedding planner at the resort and I knew as soon as I saw her website, I wanted her to capture our special day! Not even a question in my mind! Highly recommend! Are there more than 5 stars to give?!

Sylvia was absolutely amazing. She was so quick to respond to any questions I had. She was on time and very flexible with our schedule. She exceeded our expectations and our wedding pictures were absolutely stunning! Her pricing was very reasonable and worth every penny. I would recommend her to anybody and will definitely be using her for future Costa Rica anniversary trips!
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!!!
