Sooooo my first wedding of 2014 … was in costa rica. and yes I write “costa rica wedding photographer” at the top. Leave me alone.. I want more Costa rica weddings. whooohhoo
Ashley and Alex (the cutest couple ever) started planning their wedding back in DC. As the planning was coming along, they came to realize that a huge traditional wedding day wasn’t really want neither of them wanted. So they decided to pack their bags and head over to Costa Rica to plan an intimate 20 person wedding with family. I’m sooo honoured that they chose ME to go with them. It was such an amazing experience. I feel so privileged. Especially with a wedding like this one. Everyone was right up my alley.
We got along from the very start. Like we had known each other for years. We had breakfast together and everything! 😛
I arrived February 1st in Liberia where I was brought to the cutest resort. The people there were soooo nice. They wanted nothing more but to make us have the best trip ever. As part of my destination wedding packages, I offer an Engagement session the day before the wedding or a Trash-the-dress session the day after the wedding. Ashley and Alex choose the engagement session. Feb 2nd, we went walking around and explored. As we were walking, we met (and fell in love) with a 3-legged pup that ended up following us ALL THE WAY back to our resort. I guess we showed him a little too MUCH affection that he wanted to come home with us. 😉 We felt so bad and he was so tired running in the sand that Ashley felt obligated to bring him back home. I ended up going back to the hotel to take care of my leg, which I slashed on a rusty Barb wire (that’s a whole other story) Don’t worry. I got my shots. I’m ok.
I only stayed in Costa Rica for 4 days but man… Was it pretty and peaceful. No tourists. Just the sounds of the ocean. I will go back!
