Elopement Photographers for Small Costa Rica Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small San Jose-CR wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

San Jose-CR wedding photography by Mauricio Urena of Costa Rica

I am a Boutique Portrait & Destination Wedding Photographer based in San José-Costa Rica but also serving Destination Beach Weddings and Elopements at Guanacaste, Tamarindo, La Cruz, Conchal, Nosara, Flamingo, Papagayo Peninsula, Manuel Antonio, Jaco, Esterillos, Dominical, Santa Teresa, Uvita areas and/or wherever your love story deserves to be captured locally or abroad. I have shot more than 200 weddings and often shot around 40 weddings per year. I love to invest not only in the best education, tools, and technology available, but I also continuously invest in being a better professional, husband, and son. I'm an avid athlete since childhood with a career in the field of business and finance. I love pets, cookies, cakes, and above all, I'm a very detail-oriented person. My main purpose as a Costa Rica Portrait & Destination Wedding Photographer is to respect and honor your dreams. I’ll do this by capturing your emotions, feelings, essence, and love in a very organic and discreet way, maintaining the authenticity of each moment and, of course, by adding my personal touch. Nothing moves me more, and nothing is most rewarding than the emotions, and happy messages I get from my clients. Serving you, knowing that my artwork will have a special place in your hearts throughout your life, earning your trust and appreciation means the world to me! My photography style has been crafted and developed through the years. I like to take photojournalistic and candid images that capture moments, but also there are times in which you need to apply a more classic and posed style. As you may notice in my portfolio I love natural and vivid colors, perfectly light subjects, and accurate skin tones, as well as classic black and white images. If you are planning to visit our beautiful country either for your Wedding, Elopement or simply a vacation trip and want a Couple Portrait session or a Family Portrait session at any place of our country, do not hesitate to contact me. I’ll be glad to be your host and capture wonderful moments for you and your relatives. [San Jose-CR Wedding Photographer]

While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day.

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED?
