Hotel El Alma Wedding Photography.
Back in March I shot a wedding at Hotel El Alma del Pacifico located on Playa Esterillos Este here on the Central Pacific. I’d been to this beach plenty of times to surf but it was my first time shooting a wedding there. It turned out to be a great venue as the beach is huge, that is to say there is a lot of sand and the tide seems to go out forever. This really makes for some dramatic backdrops as the sun starts to go down.
The bride was from Quepos, and the groom it turns out is in grad school at CU Boulder, where I graduated from a million years ago. They were a great couple, totally comfortable in front of the camera, and we were able to get some great portrait shots at the end of the day. The weather cooperated perfectly, a few clouds came in to add character to the sky, and the rain held off to well after the reception ended.
