Beach Wedding – Esterillos Costa Rica June 2012

What a fantastically fun wedding! The bride and groom recently moved to Costa Rica and love to fish. They¬†chose the beautiful and peaceful Esterillos Este Beach which is about 20 minutes north of Quepos / Manuel Antonio for their wedding celebration. All the guests were staying at the Hotel Monterey del Mar. The night before the wedding there was a rehearsal dinner and the sunset was unbelievable! We got some romantic shots as the couple just wanted to enjoy the following night at the wedding, I particularly like the sparkler photos around the bonfire. The wedding day was another glorious day, with another amazing sunset…June can have some spectacular sunsets with the start of the rainy season bringing in a few dramatic clouds. The wedding reception was really fun and I am pleased with how the photos captured the frivolity.

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.
