Kuba Okon wedding photography

ABOUT ME

Hello, I’m Kuba Okon. I’m a Polish wedding photographer based in Costa Rica (for most of the year). I specialize in destination weddings in Central America, but I’m available to travel worldwide. My style comes from experience as an award-winning painter. The knowledge I obtained while studying to get my Master of Fine Arts degree, as well as multinational practice working as a photographer for the last decade, has given me a unique style and perspective.

My approach:
For me, it is all about making something beautiful. I try to capture things in a candid and artistic way. I am known to photograph in an unobtrusive manner. I try not to influence situations too much by only giving direction as needed, but I prefer to mostly let the day happen as it should. Ultimately, my goal is to craft fine art images that will be cherished for a lifetime.

FAQS

• Where do you work?

I'm based in Costa Rica, and I work primarily in Central America which includes Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Mexico. These are amazing locations that I get to shoot. Also, I spend a couple of months a year taking photos in Europe. Please reach out to check if I'm available on your desired date.

• Do you offer wedding packages?

Of course, I offer wedding packages! My most popular packages consist of shooting between two to eight hours for the special event. I also offer options for elopements and engagements. For complete pricing information, please fill out the form on my Contact page, or you can contact me directly at kubaokonweddings@gmail.com

• Do you do both weddings and elopements?

Yes, I cover large traditional weddings as well as small intimate elopements. Elopements can strip away the stress of planning a large wedding while allowing you to concentrate on what matters most: the celebration of your love. Also, an elopement should have a guest count of no more than 10 guests.

• Can I print the images?

Yes, I will give you the personal printing rights for the photographs.

• Do you edit all of the images?

Yes, I do all of the editing myself! After going through all of the images with great attention to detail, I choose the best ones for you. Then, I edit each photo individually, mostly for color, quality, and exposure.

• Do you work with a second photographer?

I shoot weddings by myself, and I work with a second shooter depending on the type of wedding package selected. I also use the help of my assistant. I usually recommend using a second photographer for weddings with more than 100 guests.

• Can we meet up?

Of course, we can meet. I think it is very important to get to know each other. It helps create a rapport and trust before the special day arrives. If you are busy or live far away, we can always arrange a Skype/Facetime call.

• How did you became photographer?

Well, I have been interested in art ever since I can remember. I always had a passion for sketching and painting. I also graduated with a Master of Fine Arts’ degree. My love for photography came naturally.

• How many images do you deliver?

For weddings, I generally deliver around 75-100 images per hour.

• When would we receive our photos?

Post-production typically takes between four to six weeks.

• What is the best way to describe your style?

I am very unobtrusive when photographing weddings, and I like to observe the event from a certain distance. I try not to influence situations too much, if possible. I will give some direction if needed, but I mostly let the day happen as it should. At the same time, I am very close to the action. The result is a style that documents the event in a candid, unique, and artistic way.
