Honeymoon Photography on a Costa Rican Beach 2014

One of the most important things about being a great photographer is being able to make you clients feel comfortable and enjoy the photography session.
This couple really wanted some great photographs to celebrate their wedding, so coming to Costa Rica on honeymoon they contacted me to do a Honeymoon Photography Session. Initially, like many clients, they felt a little uncomfortable, I know how they feel when I have the lens turned on me! But working with them, varying the location, suggesting poses and having fun, they soon relaxed and actually started to enjoy themselves! We initially started with a  morning session, but later in the day when I saw it was going to be an amazing sunset, I called them and they were keen to come back for more! I think we got some amazing photos!

Location: Manuel Antonio Beach, Costa Rica

Engagement Photography Manuel Antonio Costa Rica January 2014

This recently engaged couple came to Costa Rica to vacation, and also wanted to get some photos to celebrate their engagement. Manuel Antonio is full of beautiful areas of beach and jungle. We first visited Playitas Beach at the north end of Playa Espadilla, Manuel Antonio’s famous beach. Later, we headed back to their hotel, The Parador and got a few more stunning photos. We climbed trees, rocks, got wet, it was a fun shoot! Congratulations and Buena Suerte for your wedding!


Rainforest Wedding Photography – Rainmaker Costa Rica 2013

This newly married couple tied the knot back at home and decided to bring their wedding gear on honeymoon to Costa Rica get some unique jungle wedding photos. We headed to the rainforest reserve of Rainmaker to get some fantastic photographs of the bride and groom in jungle waterfalls and on Rainmaker’s hanging bridges….love and nature entwined!

Location – Rainmaker, a rainforest reserve located just north of Quepos (between Parrita and Paquita) on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica

Rainforest meets Beach Wedding in Costa Rica May 2012

A beautiful and simple wedding on the beach at Playa Hermosa, a small surf town just to the south of Jaco on the Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. The ceremony took place in the morning and we had got some great photos with the contrast against the volcanic rocks. After the wedding we headed into to the rainforest to get some fantastic jungle shots. I love the contrast of the near black and white beach photographs with the only splashes of color of the bride’s bouquet and the blue sky, compared to the riot of color in the jungle. Great to have such palette to create fantastic photos.

The Rainforest photographs were taken at Rainmaker, 40 minutes south of Jaco, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.

Honeymoon Photography in the Costa Rican Rainforest May 2012

Earlier this month I took a recently married couple for a photography session in the Costa Rican Rainforest. The honeymoon couple were nature / adventure enthusiasts like myself and jumped at the idea of combining a jungle hike with the photography. We went to Rainmaker, which family run nature reserve about a 30 drive from Manuel Antonio. The park has hanging bridges suspended in the rain-forest canopy, river-side trails, waterfalls and jungle swimming holes to take a dip in..all in all, a Costa Rican Paradise! We had a fantastic jungle hike and I think the photos in the misty rainforest came out really well. On the way back we stopped at a little “pulperia” (a Costa Rican convenience store) and I got some fun colorful photos with the signs outside.
