Sarah & Javier

Costa Rica sure cultivates falling in love!

Sarah (who is from Germany) was traveling in Costa Rica when she met her future husband Javier.  She eventually immigrated and fast forward a few years, married her Tico love in a gorgeous boho ceremony on the beach in Playa Grande.

Kate & Dane

I had the pleasure of working with Kate on her wedding day and meeting some of her amazing friends and family.  One of the lovely parts of being a wedding make-up artist is the one-on-one time I spend with each woman closest to the bride while doing their make-up.  The contemplation that each has of their time knowing the bride or the special moments they’ve shared with her gives me a great glimpse into her life and character.  
 
Kate’s mom’s toast says it all.  This is truly one of the best toasts I’ve ever heard.

Desiree & Alex

What do two people who said to themselves “I’ll never get married!” — then meet the person of their dreams do? They travel half way around the planet from New Zealand to Costa Rica for a very intimate wedding (5 people) and then globe trot through South America and finish up in the Galapagos.

Linda & Justin

Linda’s wedding was truly straight out of a tropical fairy tale.  From her family flying in from all over the world to attend, to that incredible gown that would have made Cinderella green with envy!  Photographer Madison Baltodano did an amazing job of capturing all the special moments, not to mention Linda’s smile that just wouldn’t quit!

Brooke & Drew

I love the few hours I get to spend in the room with the bride getting her and her best girls ready.  The mood is always charged with energy.  Everyone’s festive.  They’re laughing, dancing, exchanging memories and hugs, and of course, drinking champagne!

Brooke and Drew had the most beautiful, playful chemistry between them, which really came through in their photos.

Romantic Costa Rica Wedding Styled Shoot

Was so much fun to work with so many talented people on a styled photo shoot at one of my favorite beaches here in Costa Rica, Playa Danta.  The shoot was recently featured on the wedding blog Wedding Sparrow.
