Working with Mauricio was such a pleasure!
When we did our wedding at Hotel Villa Caletas, the venue recommended Mauricio, and we are so glad they did so. Mauricio impressed us many times during the entire wedding process, from the planning beforehand, the day of the wedding, and the editing process afterwards.
Before the wedding, Mauricio had multiple zoom meetings with us, where he took a lot of time to get to know us and what we wanted from his services. Some of the questions he asked us during the initial interview were very deep and thought provoking, which was impressive. The nights before the wedding he made sure to zoom with us again and go over all the details and schedule of the wedding day so we would be on the same page. He really helped take a lot of that stress off our shoulders.
The day of the wedding, Mauricio and his team were nothing but spectacular. There were so many different aspects of the wedding that the team got great photos of. They really captured the preparation with the wedding party, individual portraits of bridesmaids and groomsmen, family photos, the ceremony (of course), speeches, the dinner, and the wild afterparty. The photos were so candid and well captured that we could actually hear the volume through the photos.
One aspect of Mauricio's skill as a photographer on the wedding day which really stood out was his ability to improvise. The wedding did not go exactly as planned: bridal party preparation took longer than expected, certain locations which we had planned for photos had to be moved, but every time something changed, Mauricio and his team adapted and got it done without coming off as stressed or stressing us.
After the wedding, Mauricio was very communicative about the editing process and timelines to get us our photos. He was able to send us a few key photos very soon after the wedding which was nice to have as an appetizer. After a few months he delivered the photos to us and we were SO happy with his work! We're not professional photographers so we can't speak to the composition, but there was a healthy blend of dramatic, artistic photos as well as natural, candid photos. Every single one of our friends and family who we have shown the photos too have said over and over again what an amazing photographer he was and how they looked like vogue shoots.
Mauricio and his team were beyond impressive, and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. We feel so absolutely lucky to have been able to work with him, and have our wedding captured in these memories so beautifully.
