A little over a year ago, I photographed a gorgeous wedding in Costa Rica, and I realized I have yet to blog it!

It truly was a dream to photograph. Cristina Elena and I flew in to the capital, were hosted by the dreamiest family, and explored Costa Rica as we prepared to photograph the most relaxed yet luxurious wedding I’ve ever been to.



We then drove hours away to a small coastal town. The roads getting there were insane! It felt like we were in the middle of the jungle until we suddenly came upon a gorgeous resort. There were howling monkeys, fresh fruit, and infinity pools. It was an absolute dream.

After Party!!!!!



After the wedding Cristina and I spent a day enjoying the resort and then returned to the city and explored the coffee farm surrounding us.


Costa Rica is full of genuinely lovely people, bright colors, fresh fruit, and unending adventures. I can’t wait to return one day!

If you or someone you know is having a destination wedding, I would love to shoot the wedding for FREE. Simply pay for my ticket & stay 🙂
