Casa Maravilla Wedding Costa Rica

Marcia and Hank are almond farmers from California and are the nicest people you’ll ever meet. They decided to get married with just close friends and family at Casa Maravilla in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Casa Maravilla was the perfect venue for an intimate wedding like this, as everyone could all get ready together as the rooms were just a few steps away from where the wedding ceremony would be. Likewise, the area for the ceremony was a gorgeous spot overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a great vantage spot to see the sunset. Afterwards we had a couple toasts and enjoyed an excellent lobster dinner.

    Kevin is an amazing artist. I found him online and loved his work right off but decided to use a wedding planner for my destination wedding in the beginning. She had her own recommendation for a photographer and I was disappointed to say the least. Eventually, I ended up letting go of the wedding planner, hired Kevin and the officiant I found online and Kevin helped me find a florist and solo guitarist. Everything turned out perfectly! The comfort level I felt with Kevin from the contract level to the time he came to the house to introduce himself in person was always professional but relaxed. He sent me some pictures of his parents since Hank and I are an older couple. He captures such positive reflection in the photos he takes and is able to be creative, spontaneous and fun without being intrusive. I think he has such a gift and am so happy with our photo album. It was such a pleasure working with him. ReplyCancel

Bali House Destination Wedding Costa Rica

Last month I had the honor of shooting Katie and Trent’s wedding in front of the beach at the luxurious Bali House in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.  Katie and Trent decided to have an intimate wedding with just their families and closest friends.  The ceremony was held at the beach, just a few feet from the waterline.  It was a beautiful ceremony, and afterwards we had some time for family photos and a portrait session.  Katie and Trent were up for anything, and didn’t mind me asking them to step into the bushes, or behind trees to get a bit of the jungle in the photos.  The clouds covered up the sunset, but we were able to get some nice photos in the blue hour immediately afterwards.  Afterwards we headed back to the Bali House for a bit of dancing.

Arenas del Mar Luxury Hotel Wedding Photography

Amber and Mike are an awesome couple, totally laid back and you can see how in love they are when they look at each other. Earlier this month I was fortunate to be the photographer at their elopement at Arenas del Mar Hotel, here in Manuel Antonio. The beach at Arenas del Mar is one of my favorite beaches in the area. It is surrounded on both sides with very dramatic lava rocks, which are no fun to walk on but make for great backdrops for photos. There are also a lot less people on this beach as you need to enter either by climbing over these rocks at low tide from the main beach, or through the hotel itself. Amber and Mike had an intimate ceremony, with all the fine details like guitarist and flower petals and lovely flower strings organized by Sylvia from Costa Rica Paradise Weddings.
After the ceremony, as it was just Amber and Mike, I was able to take them for a walk along the length of the beach and look for fun and interesting places to take some photos. I thought that we would not be able to see the sunset from the beach at Arenas del Mar, but we were able to climb up on some of the higher rocks, and this gave us a different vantage point to see further out into the ocean past some of the landmasses that were blocking the sunset from the beach. It turned out to be a stunning sunset. After the sun went down, and we were packing up, Amber turned around and ran into the water to wash off some of the sand. I knew I had to take out my camera for one last shot of her running to the water with the post sunset reds in the sky.

    Kevin, Thank you so much for these photos – we love them! It was such a pleasant surprise to get them early as well. I’m amazed at how many great shots there are given that our wedding was so short! Thank you again :) ReplyCancel
