About us


At every wedding hearts are exposed, people are willing to show their feelings like no other time in their lives. We are passionate about capturing that intimate look, that one special kiss and the words that change everything forever.

I am Michelle, and together with my husband David, created Bacalao Films in 2011. David and I met in film school and since then have filmed and photographed hundreds of weddings in every corner of Costa Rica and beyond. We love to travel, nature, music and good food!

The films we make are personal ones, we focus on the bride and groom and their loved ones. We desire not only to document but to create an art piece that immortalizes the love and feel that each wedding contains. Every wedding is different, that's why we are always prepared for the unexpected!

We are honored you are considering us to capture one of the most important days of your life. Let's get in touch!
