Well, we could go on and on about the history of us and our 12+ years in photography, but it’s not really going to tell you much about us as wedding photographers. The truth is, we just love couples in love, wedding days, and marriage. We truly enjoy having such a personal and fun relationship with our clients during one of the most important periods in their lives. When we finally meet in person on your wedding day, it’s as if we’ve known each other for years given all we do together before your big day. 
For us, creating timeless images you and your family will cherish is our goal. We do this by combining photojournalism with some guided posing throughout your wedding day. One day, we hope your children and grandchildren come across your wedding album and see the timeless photos of their parents and grandparents in love as they embark on a journey of a lifetime. 
We currently live in Zarcero with out two Bengal cats, Nilo and Pancho, and photograph engagements and weddings all over Costa Rica. 
We very much look forward to hearing about your love story!

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I received my formal training in photography at the Universidad Creativa in San José, Costa Rica and have worked as a primary and second shooter for other photography companies in Costa Rica before founding my own company in 2012 and later starting Arenas Foto Wedding Photography with my husband after getting married. To continue expanding my knowledge of photography, I regularly engage in extended learning classes by leading international photographers.  
Additionally, I have a BA in Psychology from the Universidad Católica in San José and completed a thesis focusing on the implementation of photography as a means of understanding a how one sees one’s self from the perspective of myriad social constructs as an alternative form of therapy.

If you are on the fence about who to choose for your engagement/wedding/elopement photos. Then stop right now and read this.

Lindsay and Andrés are the most professional, helpful, KIND, and knowledgeable out of all the photographers I talked with.

Andrés and I planned out a surprise engagement months before my now fiancee and I made a trip to Costa Rica. During the process, Lindsay and Andrés provided me with the best places to pop the question. I wanted something beautiful, yet not as touristy, and Lindsay was a huge help on that end since she is originally from CR. They both even Read More provided local hotspots for us to see and do during our trip!

The surprise could not have gone anymore perfect (if you haven't seen the gallery of our engagement, go to their website and take a look!). Lindsay and Andrés are dedicated to their craft and we loved seeing them get so excited about the lighting, their photos, and seeing their ideas come to life as they took our pictures.

They are truly professional and prepared for your session, whichever you are doing. They drove hours, yes... HOURS and stayed overnight to our engagement site to do the photo shoot. Their portable flash equipment even got soaked by the tide coming in; but because of their extreme preparation and attention to details, they had an extra setup in their car.

Erin and I know have incredible photos that will last a lifetime, and we still get emotional whenever we look at these pictures because Lindsay and Andrés were able to capture the most perfect moments.

If you don't believe me, then go give Lindsay and Andrés a call/email now and don't be surprised by the incredible passion of what they do become immediately apparent.

Pura Vida, Lindsay and Andrés

Thank you for everything you did for Erin and I.

We had a phenomenal experience with Arenas Foto! Every step of the way they kept in great communication and made our day so much more special. They went above and beyond hiking a muddy trail and getting into the water to take photos at a waterfall. They ran with it when we changed our ceremony time to early morning just the night before. They even gave us a parting gift. In all, they are amazing photographers and amazing people. From the get-go they put us at ease and our photos are fantastic. It been so great being able to look back as well as sharing our special day with all our family and Read More friends. We cannot recommend them enough!!

Hi future couple. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of Arenas photography! First of all, I want to say that Lindsay and Andrés were a very sweet partnership for making sure to take the most beautiful photos on our special day. Before hiring them, they were flexible in working with me and my budget to make a plan that was going to work with us. I was thankful for this, since we had originally decided that we wouldn't have a photographer that day because of our low budget and our last minute wedding. However, we decided to change since this was going to be the best day of our lives Read More and we wanted not to worry about whether we had or not any photos. They arrived early and were ready to discuss with us the details of the day. I appreciated this, because I had been running around all morning and so it was nice to sit down with my husband and relax while we heard from them their plan and their ideas for photos that day. I appreciated their timeliness and their preparation. They guided us well when we had the shoots and allowed for me to also incorporate some ideas I had. I felt comfortable around them and felt that they were actually listening to what we wanted. My family was very impressed with their work too. Our photos are beautiful!!! At the end of the night, it wasn't planned for them to hang out but they were so engulfed in our day that they took an additional few photos of us. It was so nice that they also bonded with my mother, she loved their work and she loved that Andres took pictures of her too! It was really a great experience and I love that they complimented me on my make up skills. This I really owe to the articles he sent me beforehand in order to prepare for make up on that day. Thank you for reading and just I really recommend them to be there. They are fun, filled with ideas, and also have great detailed work!
