TESTIMONIALS

We could not have chosen a better wedding photographer to capture our special day. Jose shut all the important aspects of our wedding and made it so fun! I felt comfortable and beautiful in front of his camera. So many people commented on how these pictures were stunning. Thank you again, for using your talents to help us capture these memories. We are so excited to print these off and put them in frames.
Hoping you guys are doing well!
-Ian & Hope

There are good photographers, there are great photographers and there are artists. Jose Luis Zapata is truly an artist. He has such an amazing eye and truly sees the world differently. We call ourselves lucky to have found him and honored to have shot with him. We receive numerous compliments DAILY on our wedding photos, with the most coming from social media from other wedding photographers. He is an innovator and inspires other photographers from around the world, and we had the privilege of working with him. We will never forget the experience of hiking ancient Mayan Ruins in wedding attire, and were speechless when we received our photos. He completely captured US in his work, sexy, edgy, unique…these photos look like they should be in a magazine, not just sitting in frames in our home!
Jose Luis Zapata managed to capture irreplaceable moments in time, and for that, we are forever grateful. He didn’t just give us wedding photos, he gave us life everlasting memories. For anyone looking for an AMAZING wedding photographer in Belize, we would highly recommend Jose Luis Zapata!

Wow! What can I say about Jose? He is an amazing photographer who is the perfect balance of casual and professional. He is so good at what he does that you sometimes find yourself thinking “Is this it? Should I be doing more?” but then you see the photos and you are blown away at what he captures so effortlessly.
I chose Jose because when I saw his portfolio I loved the creativity he used in his editing. The photos look so surreal. Everyone who has seen them can’t believe how beautiful they are.
He was on time, friendly, and he made sure we had the photos in time to share in the video montage at our reception when we got back home. Dealing with him was not only a breeze, it was a pleasure and the husband and I are already planning an anniversary trip back in a couple years and plan to use Jose again to capture those memories! – Richard & Sarah Mata

For anyone looking for an AMAZING wedding photographer in Belize, we would highly recommend Jose Luis Zapata!
We were a bit nervous in the beginning booking a photographer from another country, not knowing what their style and “eye” would be like, coming from a different culture than our own. We didn’t want to spend a lot of money and then be disappointed in the result. We were worried for nothing! Jose captured our wedding day in every way we would have hoped, and then some. He was very down-to-earth and allowed us to goof off in front of the camera when we wanted to but he also had a great eye for the traditional, intimate shots that every wedding day must include.
