How I see wedding photography?

Love in Costa Rica never looked so good.

The details of your perfect day will involve one of the largest, concentrated investments of time, thought and money. You want your personalities reflected in every perfect detail, and you especially want your photographer to capture all of those details perfectly ­ the anticipation, emotions, care, and preparation.

My promise to you: Your Costa Rica destination ­wedding photos will be an impressive, creative visual narrative of your wedding day.

Since 2008 I've built relationships with brides, couples and families and I realize that no two are the same. Each wedding is an exciting, new experience for me and I feel privileged to use my knowledge and understanding to provide the unique coverage you need.

Your personal style may be formal, traditional, contemporary, fun­loving, indie, fashion, or a crazy combination of these and more. I have worked with hundreds of brides before the wedding to determine exactly what they want.

I have packages and prices for every budget. Work with me and I will deliver images you will treasure forever.


Toh Gouttenoire - Your Costa Rica Wedding Photographer

What is my style?

I approaches wedding photography with the spirit of photojournalism, capturing the natural, true moment and reflect the excitement, laughs, tears... All the emotions of your day, will be fixed gracefully on your wedding photos so that future generations can see how it really happens.

While wedding photojournalism and candid shots are my hallmark, I am aware that you may also want various traditional posed photos such as bride alone, groom alone, bride and groom, families groups...

My other great pleasure and becoming quickly a favorite from my customers is that funky, dynamic and creative lighting that I use a lot around sunset for the bride and/or the couple... It is also the style that I use a lot in the fashion and Trash the dress shoots.

Don't worry : it's your day and we'll work with you to achieve the photography style and poses that fully correspond to you.

I always work with my assistant, this for not having to take care of checking equipment, moving stands... This way I'm totally concentrated on shooting, having more and less stress I so shoot more and better photographs.

What material do I use?

I'm using only the best digital equipment available at the moment, with back up body and back up flashes in case (never happen before...) of a problem. (I am a Nikon Full frame, constant aperture lens and Pocket wizard adept).

The memory cards I shoot to are regularly backed­up throughout the day and stored in a secure place until they can be loaded onto my studio hard drive.

To create drama and style I use mounted, off­camera flash to create studio­quality light, give me the freedom of creativity and to consistently make you look your best.
