Toh Gouttenoire is top-notch photography! Our gallery of photos were artistic, creative, and each in their own right unique! The photos powerfully captured and portrayed the depth of our emotions as well as the beauty of our natural surroundings. The pictures look so amazing that it is hard to believe they are real. Besides having these wonderful photos, the actual experience of the photo shoot was a once in a lifetime memory making experience. The weather had me down since it was raining terribly hard and non-stop, yet it did not deter Toh. We trekked in the rain and got our shots. My now husband said he will remember this experience for the rest of his life, we felt like movie star models in a destination magazine photo shoot! It was so much fun and romantic! I don't know how Toh did it, but despite the rain, our photos came out fabulous!

I'm a bit behind on writing this review but none the less I wanted to make sure I got to do it. Our destination wedding was at the Riu Guanacaste, Costa Rica on Jan.26.2016 Toh's work was impeccable! The basic info, he delivered our photos within less than 2 months after the wedding. He spent 8 hours with us on the day and promised a minimum of 600 photos and we received just that! He spent an hour taking family photos in which he allowed me to specifically give him a list of 96 shots of different combinations of family members I wanted in each shot and every one of the shots were wonderful! These were the only specified shots we asked and we let his creativity do the rest and the shots were beautiful. There were photos that my husband and I don't even remember seeing Toh take but when we review our video you see him zipping around with his crew getting every angle, while all the time being mindful of the video cameras moving out of the shots as soon as they could. Toh and his team were fantastic! His personality was amazing and made the experience even more memorable. Our decision was between the resorts on site team and Toh, who by chance I found through Google. When I reviewed the work of each, the choice was clear, Toh had more creativity and captures the emotion in each shot. Our photos were beyond our expectations! If you are looking for quality photos that you can enlarge and use as art in your house (which is what we did) Toh is the obvious answer, you won't regret it! Thank you Toh, you really captured the beauty of the day, thank you so much!!!

I can't thank Toh and his assistants enough for their coverage of my wedding at the Riu Palace Resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. As soon as I saw his online gallery, I knew that I wanted THOSE pictures. And that is exactly what I got. The day of the wedding, Toh was super flexible on his arrival time and really made sure we got the shots we wanted, including pushing to capture every last moment of light before sunset. His team were highly professional as well, and hiked along the beach in +37 celsius weather to move tree branches and haul gear. I would engage Toh and his team again in a heartbeat!

We hired Toh to photograph our wedding in Manuel Antonio in January of 2016 and were beyond impressed with his services. He is so creative, energetic, and passionate about what he does and it is clearly reflected in his work. Our photos from the Catamaran trip the day before the wedding and on wedding day are so gorgeous. He was very easy to communicate with, extremely fun to be around, and very reasonably priced. I am so happy with our photos and grateful that we chose Toh as our wedding photographer. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for incredible talent at a reasonable price, you will not regret hiring this great guy :)

We are so happy with how are wedding pictures turned out. We eloped in Tamarino Costa Rica just me and my husband so my pictures meant a lot to me since our families were unable to be there. The pictures are so unique in every way. I had people even calling me from all over to tell me how beautiful they were and everyone wanted to know who my photographer was. Toh is so amazing to work with. He truly captures every single moment down to the detail. My pictures looked like a fairytale. I feel so lucky I got the opportunity to work with him and absolutely love and cherish my photos forever!! THANK YOU TOH !

My fiancé and I did a 2h photoshoot with Toh during our engagement trip to Costa Rica. What should we say, it was simply amazing! At the beginning, we got lots of great suggestions from Toh when we started to plan the session through emails. Toh was very friendly and helpful. Then the shooting day came, everything went smoothly, we went to several places and tried different settings, from a little jungle to the beach sunset. Toh was very easy to work with, extremely professional and had a lot of great ideas at the spontaneous moments. We had a lot of fun and were also very touched by his devotion and passion to his job. One month later, we were then blown away by the absolutely fantastic pictures. The amazing colors, the exquisite details, and the touching moments he caught, simply thrilled us. We are extremely satisfied with the whole experience. We would highly recommend Toh to anyone in love and is looking for a romantic and unique memory to cherish.

We were absolutely blown away by the gorgeous photos from Toh for our Costa Rican wedding in May 2015. It was a picture perfect sunset and a day to remember the rest of our lives. It seemed to go so fast as we had photos taken while we got ready, on the beach and during the sunset. Toh was really great to work with, very professional and we had fun trying different settings. We would recommend Toh to anyone in a heartbeat, as we were so lucky to have him for our wedding day. Best wishes and cheers!!

Toh did an awesome job and we couldn't be happier. He worked incredible hard, and you can see how creative and serious he is about his work. He was easy to work with, and answered all our questions as promptly as i would expect being that we live in different countries. He was very laid back which made the wedding day that much more comfortable on a day that usually involves at least a little stress and anxiety! Most of all his work speaks for itself. His pictures turned out incredible and we would definitely recommend anyone needed a photographer to use him....you won't be disappointed

My husband and I recently were married at the RIU Guanacaste. We had been to Costa Rica previously and knew the landscape is beautiful. One of the most important things to us was to hire a photographer who would capture all those special moments and all that is beautiful in Costa Rica. We had looked at several different photographers but Toh's portfolio was beyond impressive. We had high expectations and he exceeded them all. He took SO MANY pictures in a 4 hour time frame and managed to keep all of us laughing the entire time. He is professional but personable, which was very important because he made all of us relaxed during photos. We had a large wedding party and a total of 35 guests, which can be a challenge when trying to get everyone in place. Toh and his assistant were patient and CREATIVE. When we received our final photos I was speechless. The final product was an abundance of pictures we loved, and a variety! His pricing is worth it when you see the time he takes the day of the wedding and afterwards editing and communicating with us. His work is priceless. I would recommend him to everyone. My only regret is I wish I would have done a Trash the Dress session as well. We ended up with the best photos, best memories, and had a great experience working with him.

My husband & I hired Toh for our wedding in Costa Rica this past November & couldn't have been happier with the way that our images turned out. There is always some hesitation with booking services abroad but the communication was great right from the start! Everyone in our wedding party commented on how professional, friendly & in control he (and his assistant) were throughout the evening & in the dark, and the pouring rain, our images turned out better than we had anticipated. I would not hesitate to recommend his services for your event or wedding.

I can be honest and say that I am not easy to please but,Toh had amazing communication with me and answered all my questions.

Our photo-shoot experience with Toh was amazing. Whole shooting was very comfortable and pleasant. He is very friendly and energetic. During our shoots, he had 2 assistants also who were doing great job in getting right light angles. He captures every detail and picture quality is great. He creates perfect landscapes for his shoot.
Once we received our pictures after few weeks, they were amazing, he made us feel like Hollywood stars. We have received lot of compliments on our pictures. Becoming part of Toh's photo-shoot is as amazing experience as visiting best places of Costa Rica. Thank you Toh!!!

Having worked with Toh on many events all over Costa Rica including beautiful beach ceremonies in Guanacaste, intimate waterfall ceremonies near Arenal Volcano, horseback riding in Manuel Antonio and even an amazing hot air balloon adventure over the rainforest... I have always found Toh to be professional and FUN to work with.

He takes his work personally and cares about every individual client. Every client ends up with unique photos that suit their personalities and style, but across the board I can always see Toh's creativity and quality.

I highly recommend Toh to anyone considering him for their Costa Rica wedding, and I love when our clients select his services because I know they will be happy with the end results!

I did quite a bit of research to find a photographer for our destination wedding in Costa Rica. I came upon Toh's website and knew we had to have him for our day. We wanted someone with an unique eye..... a true artist with photos. Right from the very beginning he was easy to contact and deal with, he even helped me two months post the wedding with a technical difficulty (completely on my part). He was just overall very accommodating and helpful with everything. We trusted him with what shots he took and the pictures came out beautiful, and naturally captured. He was great at blending in and not making it obvious he was there. As where some photographers may ask you to stop to capture an action. Because of this i feel he caught some of our best moments that day. ie. the fist moment Dave saw me walking down the beach..... or the intimate moment during our vows..... the looks in our eyes and the expressions on our faces ..... those photos are priceless. I truly thank Toh for those, and hope he knows how truly happy we are that he was the one there to capture them. I just believe that no one else could have done that for us. We were thrilled with his work and immediately started showing our friends the highlights file he sent us. He and his assistant were were professional yet friendly and very easy to get along with. Thanks guys for making that day so seamless for us.

Amazing Work!

I did quite a bit of research to find a photographer for our destination wedding in Costa Rica. I came upon Toh's website and knew we had to have him for our day. We wanted someone with an unique eye..... a true artist with photos. Right from the very beginning he was easy to contact and deal with, he even helped me two months post the wedding with a technical difficulty (completely on my part). He was just overall very accommodating and helpful with everything. We trusted him with what shots he took and the pictures came out beautiful, and naturally captured. He was great at blending in and not making it obvious he was there. As where some photographers may ask you to stop to capture an action. Because of this i feel he caught some of our best moments that day. ie. the fist moment Dave saw me walking down the beach..... or the intimate moment during our vows..... the looks in our eyes and the expressions on our faces ..... those photos are priceless. I truly thank Toh for those, and hope he knows how truly happy we are that he was the one there to capture them. I just believe that no one else could have done that for us.

After my wedding day, I was a bit concerned on how well our photos would come out since we had so many elements working against us that day. Between several coordination problems from our wedding director and mother nature bringing an overcast to our sunset wedding (plus not being the greatest subject matters once my husband and I got drunk on sparkling wine after our ceremony! LOL),I prepared myself for the worst.
When I received my wedding photos, I was blown away on how well the photos came out considering the challenges Toh and his crew had to work with. I was always impressed by his work, but have gained a whole new respect seeing how he is able to rise to the occasion.
Aside from his great quality of photography, he and his crew were very friendly and easy to work with. Almost having a panic attack with last minute changes in my wedding plans from my director, Toh was the one that calmed me down and assured me everything would work out okay. (Thanks for that, Toh!)
What I love best about my photos is that they are original and different from any other pictures I've seen, including Toh's own portfolio. He works with the elements that are before him, does not give you the "cookie-cutter" photos that you see time and time again.
Toh is an amazing artist. Give him your trust and let him work his magic...I am sure he won't let you down.
Thank you so much, Toh!
Namaste.

Toh and his assistant were open, friendly and professional the day that we met (the day of our wedding). We pretty much followed Toh's lead which left him and his assistant sweaty and wet from the heat and the ocean, left the bottom of my wedding dress dirty from the black sandy beach, AND left me and my new husband with a gallery of gorgeous wedding photos we will cherish forever! I have looked over the gallery of photos so many times because I am so happy with how they came out and some of the emotional moments Toh captured between me and my husband. It did help that we had a beautiful sunset on our wedding day, but it would have been nothing if Toh had not captured it for us!

I had the pleasure of hiring Toh to take pictures of our family while we were vacationing in Costa Rica. It is always a bit scary hiring someone over the internet and not being able to meet them in person, but my experience was perfect. Toh was always professional and reliable. He did everything he promised and he was easy to work with. Take a look at his work and the pictures will speak for themselves! I could not have asked for a better experience.

We had our engagement and wedding pictures taken by Toh and we could not be happier! Everything was easy with him, he makes you feel so much at ease that most of the time you forget he is there. What made us decide to go with Toh is his creativity. He adapts to the couple and clearly loves his work - you see the result in the pictures. I strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to have gorgeous pictures! Merci Toh!

We are extremely pleased with Toh's photography for our beach wedding. The pictures were way beyond our expectations. They turned out beautifully.
Toh captured perfect memories for us in such an artistic way. He is extremely talented and creative. The wedding pictures were probably the best we have ever seen and all of our friends and family seemed to agree. "Exquisite, breath taking, and unbelievable" were words used to describe Toh's pictures of us. Toh and his assistant were friendly and easy going. There was no communication barrier at all (we are from USA and do not speak any Spanish). We could not be more pleased with our pictures. AMAZING WORK! Thank you, Toh!!!

Toh's work is phenomenal...but what's even better than his photos is that he was truly delightful to work with! I didn't feel nervous with him photographing me (I hate to take pics) and it just felt so natural that day. I truly appreciate that!! A bride needs to feel at ease that day and I just feel that his personality really helped with that. His assistant too!
Every bride must experience The Toh!!

Dear Toh,

Justin & I want to tell you how happy we are with BiDrop and the photos of our wedding on Playa Langosta. When we were looking for a photographer, we wanted someone talented and artistic, but still affordable. Searching for a photographer across international borders was initially intimidating, but once we found you we knew we had found the right person. Your website immediately caught my eye. Your photos showed that you are creative and talented, and after contacting you the first time, I knew you would be easy to work with as well. On top of it all, your price was the best that I found, making you the total package! When we finally met in person, Justin and I both immediately felt comfortable in trusting you to capture the essence of our wedding...us. Throughout our special day, your energy and creativity allowed us to not have to worry about the photos and focus on the important thing, our love for one another. Our day couldn't have gone any better; afterwards we were so excited to see our memories on film. We had high hopes for our photos, but once we saw them, we couldn't believe how well you captured the emotion of our day. We can't thank you enough for helping us to make sure the memories of our wedding will last a lifetime. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you as a photographer for anyone looking for the best!!!
