Beach Wedding – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica August 2013

This intimate beach wedding took place on Playa Espadilla, in Manuel Antonio, on Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast. The wedding party consisted of the bride and groom and their two daughters who were flower girls. The weather at this time a year is a guessing game, but today it was on our side and the rain held off until after the ceremony. I love the bright yellow against the grey and blues of the ocean and clouds..enjoy!

This beautiful wedding was planned by Oasis Weddings in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. It’s been a busy season and I have lots of blogging to catch up on….

Have a great weekend and Pura vida!

Sunset Beach Wedding – Manuel Antonio Costa Rica July 2013

This was such a fun and vibrant wedding and a joy to photograph. This young couple tied the knot in front of 50 friends and family on Playa Espadilla in the heart of Manuel Antonio. The bride and groom walked down a rose petal aisle and said their vows on the sand under the almond trees on the beach. Most of the wedding party left their shoes at the shoe valet to walk barefoot on the beach. After some beach fun and family, group and bride and groom photographs the wedding party went up to the Hotel Karahe to for the reception dinner, followed by dancing and a beach lantern release.

This fun and delightful wedding was planned Randy from Celebrations Costa Rica and held at the Hotel Karahe in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

Exciting news is that I am currently building a new Wedding Photography Website, so please bear with me and check back to my website in a week or so. To see more of my work and latest happening in Costa Rica and the wedding world visit my Facebook Page.

Sunset Wedding – La Reserva Manuel Antonio Costa Rica July 2012

A wonderful July wedding set on a Ocean-View hill-top in Manuel Antonio. This wedding was held at Casa Paraiso, one of La Reserva’s fantastic rental homes. The wedding had a wonderful relaxed feel with all the family staying at Casa Paraiso. The ceremony took place just a short walk away down the aisle, under a canopy strung with fresh orchids. The weather was perfect for the ceremony and on queue dramatic clouds gathered for some stunning sunset shots. The Wedding party returned to Casa Paraiso for cocktails and the reception dinner.


This beautiful wedding was planned by The Special Events Department at La Reserva in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica and catered by Ernesto Saavedra from Tamarindo Spice, Manuel Antonio.

My next Blog post will be the amazing Trash the Dress Photo Session that we did the day after the wedding..Awesome!

Wedding at Villa Caletas Costa Rica April 2012

This April wedding ceremony took place  at Villa Caletas; a spectacular venue for a wedding on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific. As it looked like it might rain, the wedding ceremony took place on a covered terrace in the hotel, the rain held off so we could go down to the hotel’s ocean front amphitheater, Zephyr Palace for some dramatic photos at sunset.

Wedding at Hotel Gaia Manuel Antonio Costa Rica February 2012

Another beautiful beach wedding in February. This elopement wedding ceremony took place on the Manuel Antonio beach with a gorgeous sunset. As it was just the couple we spent some time getting interesting photographs using the light, volcanic rocks, and even a monkey came to join the fun. I particularly like the photographs with the boat, these boats ferry people back and forth from the Manuel Antonio National Park, the captain kindly lent us his boat for a few minutes.


This wedding was organized by the Hotel Gaia in Manuel Antonio.
