Photobooth

Guests and family will love this informal and unique way of capturing uninhibited moments. The photo booth is a small studio set up with lighting equipment manned by the photographers’ assistant. Unlimited photos will be taken for two hours during the wedding reception. Creative props allow photo booth users to add a touch of comedy to these portraits.  (Props are not included.)

Extra Day Session of photo shooting

It is a two hour photo session that can be held before or after the wedding. This allows the photographer to set up a more relaxed atmosphere, and to get creative in interesting locations. We will propose a variety of nearby settings, depending on your interests: waterfall, beach, forest, unique architecture, even underwater – anything is possible!

We can discuss ideas and suggestions prior to the photo session, using stock images of each location available throughout Costa Rica, so you can decide what appeals to you the most.

The assistant and the photographer shoot the session together, using a lighting system even for outdoor settings. You will receive at least 100 retouched images from this session.

Booking in advance is highly recommended.

TESTIMONIALS: HAPPY WEDDING STORIES

Stephani & Robert

Stephani & Robert Villa Caletas wedding

Stephani & Robert Villa Caletas wedding.


I had the privilege of working with Jeff for about a year planning every detail needed for the perfect pictures. For me the wedding pictures were one of the most important things on our special day. our pictures sincerely look like they belong in a magazine! Sergio and his assistant dropped to the floor when needed to truly capture a moment, they sincerely went out of their way to make things perfect! Thanks to them I was able to capture from the moment my dad and step dad came together and walked me down like a princess, the moment when my mother joined my hand with my husband, to the moment my dream came true having my 104 year old great grandma with me on my special day. Thanks to them I will be able to relive these moments with family,friends and future children. Can put into words how thankful we are to have had the privilege of having them as our photographers. Very reasonable price for the attention and quality they give. I can say with confidence I have the best wedding pictures a girl could ever dream of!

Alexa & Miguel

Alexa & MiguelIf you want to hire the best photographer in Costa Rica and have the best photographs possible of your wedding, you don't have to look any further. Sergio and his team are the best in the business. Not only are the professional, responsive, and genuinely nice people, but they will present you with the best pictures possible.


Yes, their prices are not cheap but once you get the results you will understand why. Every penny is worth it! They are successful in capturing every moment you are wishing they capture. My husband and I didn't notice them through the entire wedding, they just seem to scatter around the venue and take the best pictures you could possibly imagine. Also, when we wanted to capture a special moment, magically they were always there to capture it. I have no complaints at all and recommend their services to anyone anywhere, whether your wedding is in the beach, city, or mountain. You will not go wrong choosing their services and you will be thanking yourself you chose them when you get your photos. Absolutely perfect!

Tamarindo Wedding

Sergio,
Dan and I wanted to thank very much for everything you have done to make our wedding day a terrific one!
As a reputable photographer myself, the first question everyone asked me was: "Oh no! who is going to take YOUR photos!?"  It was with complete confidence that I bragged about our dearly beloved Sergio!  HAHA.
We raved about your professionalism, excellent communication, and outstanding team; Jeff is equally as incredible to deal with.
For me , the photography was one of my biggest worries.  I searched for days until I came across your website.  We were so thankful to find someone with a uniquely modern yet warm shooting style; photos that not only capture the moment, but help you re-live them.
We can't thank you enough for everything you've done leading up to the wedding, and on the day.  We are truly lucky to have found you and Jeff.  THANK YOU!

My husband and I initially chose Sergio to be our photographer after viewing his website.
We saw that wedding photography was just a small part of the many different kinds of photography offered. We wanted to use someone with an artistic and creative eye, not your standard wedding photographer. We could not have chosen a better person for the job. From the beginning, he was always prompt in his communications and demonstrated extreme patience when he was trying to photograph us in the midst of all of our family and friends trying to take pictures too! Immediately, my husband and I felt comfortable posing for him, and that was very important to me. We elected to do the “day after shoot” and we are both very happy that we did. This gave Sergio the opportunity to take even more creative and unique shots! Only a few days after the wedding, Sergio sent us some sample pictures, and we were blown away! All of our photos arrived to us just  weeks later! We highly, highly recommend Stories Wedding Photography to capture all of the special moments of your special day!

FAQs


+ What rights do I have for the photos and how many can I print?

The client has exclusive rights to all the photos and can print as many photos that they want.


+ Will my wedding photos be posted on your blog?

We post a select group of your wedding photos to our blog 2 weeks prior to sending them to you, but you can  request that your wedding photos not be posted on the blog.


+ What is the best time for my Pacific Coast beach wedding ceremony?

The best time to start the wedding ceremony will depend on the sunset in Costa Rica which varies between 5:10 pm and 6 pm year round.   You can find a more precise time at the Time Zone Guide Costa Rica for your wedding date.
The photographer likes to have time after the ceremony to capture photos of the wedding couple, wedding party and family, since they offer some of the most spectacular shots with the setting sun.


+ What time will the photographer start shooting my wedding photos?

The photographer normally starts shooting 1 hour before the actual wedding ceremony, but is flexible to whatever you request.  We also suggest you have the dress, wedding rings, bouquet in the room so the photographer has them available for photos.


+ How long after my wedding before I receive my photos?

Delivery time for your photos is 2 – 4 weeks after the wedding.


+ How do I get my photos?

Your photos are sent via link for internet download.  We use a service called WeTransfer and you will receive an e-mail with the link to download your photos.

The quality of the photos is not jeopardized in any way through the web download.  All photos are sent in high resolution.

All travel expenses are included in the pricing.


+ How do I book and pay for my wedding photo package?

A 50% deposit is required to book your wedding day photo packages and the balance is due the day of your wedding.


+ Can I get the RAW photos from you?

Clients interested in raw photos (available at an additional flat fee of $200) must provide a computer and compatible hard drive the day of the wedding with at least 200 gigs of free space in it. The hard drive must not have any data in it and the footage will be delivered the same day of the wedding.  Failure to provide a computer and compatible hard drive makes this service unavailable with no exceptions. This service is only available the day of the wedding. Burning footage to DVDs and/or mailing a hard drive to the client is not a service offered.


+ Would you recommend that we hire a wedding planner for are Costa Rica destination wedding?

Definitely, working with a wedding planner allows you to enjoy your destination wedding without a worry and allows you more time to actually enjoy the occasion.  The wedding planners know all the vendors and wedding venues as well as the different seasons and pricing.  Below is a list of some of the best wedding planners in Costa Rica.
