This couple came to Costa Rica with their children for a tropical beach wedding. I met the bride and her gorgeous flower girl daughters at her room, and we took some bridal pictures, first look and family photographs. We then headed to the beautiful Esterillos Beach for the wedding. The beach ceremony took place under a wooden arch in front of the Pacific Ocean. After the ceremony we took photographs on the beach before returning to the Hotel Doce Lunas for the wedding reception. I love the photo of the kids waiting for cake!
This fun couple chose to get married in Costa Rica surrounded by their closest friends and family. The whole wedding party were staying at Hotel Doce Lunas, a charming hotel in Jaco surrounded by 5 acres of lush gardens. I met the couple at the hotel, where we got a few pre-wedding photographs. I love the photographs of the bride; her white dress contrasting against the bright colors of her tattoos, her flowers and the jungle. For the Beach ceremony the wedding party went to Esterillos, a short drive away. After a moving ceremony in front of the Pacific Ocean, we took some fun group photographs and bride and groom portraits. This is where I said goodbye to the wedding group, as then returned to the hotel for the reception dinner and party.
Elopement weddings are becoming more and more popular in Costa Rica…just a quiet beach with the sound of the waves and your loved one. This young couple chose to elope at Playa Hermosa last month. Marcelo Galli conducted the ceremony in the gardens of the Back Yard Hotel and then we went to the beach for some photos. Not long after we started our photo session the heavens opened and with had a torrential tropical downpour. It certainly didn’t dampen this bride and groom’s spirits!

This wedding couple love fishing, so what better to have their wedding but at a marina in Costa Rica. The Los Sueños Resort and Marina in Herradura is on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, and has great sportfishing! Apart from the bride and groom the star of the show was their bulldog “Chancho” looking very suave in his bow-tie. The wedding took place on the lawn of the Los Sueños resort and then there was a reception dinner, dancing to a fantastic music group, a fabulously fun photo booth and to top it off fireworks. Did I mention the bride and groom like fishing? …check out the cake topper!
I recently got a a new toy – a helicopter drone, that I have been learning how to use (playing with) for the last few months. It is has been great fun and this is one of my recent projects of a home in Los Sueños. Casa de mi Hermano is a gorgeous Mexican style home located on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Los Sueños is in a sought after location in Herradura, near Jaco and not too far to reach from San Jose. Casa de mi Hermano has lots of beautiful tile and ceramic features, each of the 3 bedrooms has it’s own bathroom. It is close to the beach and Los Sueños’s facilities that include, marina and golf course.
There are many beautiful vacation rental houses in Costa Rica, so good professional photographs can really make a huge difference in the marketing of your vacation rental. Your potential renters can really feel the essence of a vacation home and imagine themselves sitting on the terrace or by the pool watching the sunset and listening to the sounds of the jungle.

Have a great week!
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.
