They actually got married on the Marlin Del Rey a few days prior, so this is an engagement session after the ceremony in Tamarindo, Costa Rica...enjoy...
I created this video to help explain the difference between our expectations....and reality!
I photograph weddings in Canada and in Costa Rica....Here's some preview images from a recent wedding....Sarah & Kevin
Just after the sun drops over the horizon is when the sky lights up with beautiful colours. The last of the light is just about to disappear - last chance of the day for some amazing wedding portraits.
Three generations on vacation together in Tamarindo Beach. Great opportunity for a portrait! We see so many multi-generational families on vacation here - both Ticos as well as families from so many other countries.
In Tamarindo, Costa Rica we see these guys putting on amazing fire shows all the time.
I always thought it would be a great idea to play with fire, so to speak, and do a photoshoot.
Problem is, they only speak Spanish. My Spanish isn't that good when speaking with a local who can barely speak English
That's been my issue so far.
However, recently I was walking into town, and caught up to two dudes who I knew were fire guys. And they spoke English...yeaaa.
I was able to ask them and we set it up.
Another image from a recent wedding in the Tamarindo area. One from the large variety of images of the couple after the ceremony on the beach.
This is one of our favourite photos from a trip to Jamaica that hangs in our home. Our daughter's small hand in the grip of a large Rastafarian guy. Ya mon!
Every night lots of people come down to the beach to enjoy the sunset. From the beach in Tamarindo you can watch the sun drop over the horizon. If there are any clouds in the sky then the sky really lights up after the sun drops.
At a destination wedding the girls usually get ready in the hotel spa. Hair, makeup, drinks and a gathering place for the girls prior to the wedding ceremony.
