Hola! I'm Mike Blum, and I am a professional wedding photographer in Costa Rica, my home for over 20 years. I have a deep passion for Costa Rica, and its natural beauty, and as a wedding photographer the country provides a fantastic backdrop to help tell stories through images....and a wedding is a story unlike any other.
Couples that decide to wed in Costa Rica are typically looking for a unique and beautiful experience. My job as a photographer is to capture images that demonstrate the uniqueness that you are looking for during your wedding event. Your wedding is a story unlike any other.
I was born in a small town near Frankfurt, Germany. My mom had a driving school and she taught me to drive when I was 10 years old. I always liked to tinker with mechanical and technical equipment, so when I was 12, she put a camera in my hands. Since then I have been hooked on photography.
I started working with an advertising and fashion photographer when I was 16. After a few years of working with different photographers, I decided to formalize my studies and attend the Heinz Bindseil School for Photography in Hamburg. Upon graduation I opened my own studio and began gaining experience as a wedding photographer. Around 20 years ago, an opportunity arose for me to work in Costa Rica. I sold the studio and swapped Germany's cold weather for paradise.
My knowledge of Costa Rica, and years of experience as a photographer, allow me to focus on what's important...capturing the beauty and emotions surrounding your extraordinary event.
