Wedding Photography Testimonials
CARLA + RICKY
"Once we began planning and coordinating the details of our wedding, we were certain of one thing: Kevin Heslin would be our photographer! We did plenty of research on our own before contacting our coordinator and we instantly fell in love with Kevin's work. Since it was June, the weather was a bit tricky to plan around but Kevin was able to capture the most amazing shots of my husband and I on the beach. The photos from our reception are simply one of a kind. Every time we revisit the photos of my dance with mom and the ceremony pictures, my heart skips a beat. Our family and friends are still raving about his professionalism and kind spirit."
ASHLEY + ALVARO
"Kevin is amazing! He is professional, prompt, talented, and an extremely nice person. I felt at ease with him immediately. His turn around time for our final product was extremely quick and the quality was excellent. The pictures we have from him on our wedding day will be treasured for the rest of our lives. We loved the album also. He didn't just take pictures of us that day, he captured the soul and spirit of the entire ceremony and we will be forever grateful to him for it!"
KORI + TODD
"We found Kevin through our Costa Rica wedding planner and we could not have been happier with his work. Kevin is such a professional yet made us feel so comfortable and found the most amazing spots for us to photograph. Our entire wedding party commented on how fun and easy he was to work with. I still don't know how he got some of the shots that he did as he was able to blend into the wedding and we had no idea he was even there! Kevin got wet and dirty with us as he tried for some photos and angles that resulted in some really beautiful shots. We also had Kevin put together a wedding album and it is GORGEOUS - something we could not have done on our own."
BREE + AARON
"In the process of finding our wedding photographer, my wife and I hoped to find someone who could capture candid and special moments on our big day. Having a destination wedding, we weren't sure where to turn who could deliver the kind of magic we wanted captured, regardless of the weather conditions we might face. We were referred to Kevin through a series of networking and asking around. We couldn't be happier with his, and his assistant John's services! Kevin took time to understand us and our story, and helped us pull out some amazing shots. Even working in the rain we we're able to capture shots with great lighting and emotion. If you are searching for a talented and professional photographer for your day, I would HIGHLY recommend Kevin Heslin!"
ALEXANDRA + PARKER
"Kevin is way more than a wedding photographer - he is an artist who will turn your special day into stunning moments and memories. We eloped on a rainy day in Manuel Antonio; it was one day into our vacation and we were pale as ghosts, and he still managed to snap the best pics we’ve EVER taken! Kevin is a total pro and a genuinely nice guy, who gives just enough guidance to make you look both fabulous AND natural (candids are his jam), and who infuses the beauty and Puravida vibe of Costa Rica into every shot. BOOK HIM - he is the greatest!"
TRISHA + CARY
"In addition to his artistic skills and professionalism, Kevin is great with kids, personable, generous, and can expertly navigate around the maze of amateur family photographers. He worked quickly and efficiently to make sure he didn’t miss any memorable and spontaneous moments. In the end, he provided us with amazing pictures that captured the magic and emotion of our wedding ceremony and celebration in Costa Rica. The pictures are natural, beautiful, and professional. We agree with our friend—hire a good photographer...hire Kevin."
RADHA + ROHID
"My husband and I dreamed of a traditional Hindu-Muslim destination wedding in Costa Rica. We were concerned about finding a photographer who could capture the unique moments throughout all 3 days and multiple ceremonies. Kevin was so easy to communicate with and really worked with us to make our dream come true. We loved his style of photography and he did capture candid moments that we will treasure forever. He graciously discussed timing and lighting with us so that we could plan events accordingly and did an amazing beach session with us on the wedding day that we loved. Looking back we can’t imagine anyone else and we will forever be grateful to him whenever we look back on our wedding pictures!"
JUSTINE + ETHAN
"Our wedding coordinator gave us several options for photographers to choose from for our Tamarindo wedding in April. We chose Kevin Heslin because of his ability to capture real emotion in his photography. His portfolio spoke volumes about his style and capability. His easy-going, demeanor and ability to go with the flow, was very calming and just perfect for the occasion. We were not disappointed when we received our beautiful collection of photos after the wedding. Everyone who has seen them has commented on the beauty and emotion captured in the photos. They felt like they were part of the occasion, even when they were not there. We highly recommend hiring Kevin to capture your special occasion. He is extraordinary."
CAMI + KEVIN
"Like so many others, we are extremely happy to have worked with Kevin. He is a very warm, professional person to be around and just made the whole process so comfortable. He has a great handle on working with destination weddings. His commitment was obvious as he worked tirelessly the whole night and at one point even got into the pool to get the perfect shot. For people who don’t love having their picture taken we particularly appreciated how he made the whole process feel natural and not like a staged photoshoot. The results were spectacular and the turn around times was quicker than we expected. If you are doing a destination wedding, sign Kevin up and then move on to other parts of your planning with confidence he'll do a great job."
CHRISTINE + MIKE
"We hired Kevin to shoot our elopement in Manuel Antonio. We really wanted to work with a local photographer, and we are so glad we did. Before the date, as it would only be the two of us, we wondered how we could possibly fill two hours with Kevin and whether we would be posing awkwardly the whole time. However our time with him flew by and he had us relaxed and laughing during our whole photo shoot, skillfully directing us through a variety of fun activities. Kevin's documentary style captured the joy of the day and the natural, loving interaction between the two of us. He captured both intimate moments between us, and the beauty of the natural surroundings in Manuel Antonio. We have a beautiful collection of photos that we will treasure forever."
