Sayulita Wedding Photographer

Sayulita is located north of Puerto Vallarta, in what is known as The Riviera Nayarit, it's a village with a population around 5,000 people, a paradise for surfers and a great place to get Married. Do you ever dream in getting married at the beach in a small and charming village, away from the "civilization" but still well communicated to the world? In fact Sayulita is only 25 miles north of Puerto Vallata. As a Sayulita wedding photographer we've worked in many different venues, from Don Pedro's (a famous restaurant there) to many different Villas, for big weddings around 200 guests, to more intimate ones with just the bride, the groom, the wedding minister and of course the photographer.

Being a wedding photographer in Sayulita is a dream's job, the people is warm and friendly, the nature is fantastic, amazing beaches and the jungle just next to you is incredible. Also, it's full of restaurants and bars, where the party ends always late. We enjoy our work in Sayulita very much, that's why there is no extra fee to go there from Puerto Vallarta.

It all depends on the package and time, We usually try to visit both, the groom as well as the the bride before the ceremony.

About the Photographer

Hi, I’m Evgenia Kostiaeva, a destination wedding photographer who works in a Paradise called Puerto Vallarta. My photos are simple, elegant and fresh, they transmit love and happiness. I carefully build each shoot before making a click, that is why my pictures don’t need months of editing and they will be ready no later than two weeks after the big day.

I know how much effort you have put into this special day. I understand the feelings involved and your commitment to each other. I understand the importance of the search for the perfect dress and the perfect place, and I know that you want to keep these memories forever. There is no better way to ensure their permanence then to entrust yourself to the eye of a photographer who can preserve them for you. You need someone who can capture your emotions, and those of your family and friends. You need someone who will be able to create a photograph that 25 years from now will bring you back to that event.

I understand the trust my clients put in me and I know this special occasion is unique. Thus my mission as a photographer is to reflect the happiness, love, and joy of that day so that it can be felt years from now by your children and grandchildren looking at the photographs.

Same Sex Marriage in Puerto Vallarta

As a Wedding Photographer in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico I welcome the new law that guarantees marriage equality. In February 2016, the law in Mexico changed, opening the door to Same Sex Marriages and giving the same rights to all couples to be recognised as a family. I celebrate this change. As the song says ¨All you need is love.¨
