Ernesto is my little brother and assistant/second camera man at most jobs. He is great!. Although is behind the camera most of the time, he made a little exception this time to pose in front of my camera with some of his friends. This while flying in the air with his favorite toy!

I had been very excited to shoot a wedding at Villa Punto de Vista for a long time and I finally had the opportunity to do it.
Having this incredible villa to shoot from with the surroundings of Manuel Antonio is very much a dream case scenario for me as a filmmaker and most certainly for Kristi and David who pretty much had a perfect wedding full of emotions and beautiful details.
Larissa from Weddings Costa Rica did a job worthy of awe with a wonderful display of great wedding planning and hard work.
It was great to be part of the coming together of these two wonderful families.  Blessings.

Shooting this Villa in Manuel Antonio was a wonderful experience. The amount of detail and work put into every single square centimeter of this amazing house comes to extraordinary proportions.
In just two days and with a lot of work in conjunction with the owners and workers of the house, we were able to shoot video of the house and surroundings areas. As we shot, monkeys and toucans came from everywhere, it was so much fun to see. The gorgeous landscape of Manuel Antonio is always there as your back drop too, so its such a wonderful place to work.
This place is simply amazing.

I recently had the privilege to do a photo shoot for Roxy, Latin America, featuring one of Costa Rica’s most talented artist/singer/musician and now the official face for Roxy Latina America: Debi Nova.
This photo shoot was set up very last minute and goal was to capture some of the characteristics that both Debi Nova and Roxy share in common: fun, natural, organic.
This will be the first of many magazines in the near future, that will feature photos from this shoot.

This shoot was possible thanks to the great vibes and hard work from Pamela Carazo, John Osborne, Roxi and of course: Debi Nova. Thank you all so much!
