Playa Uvita Wedding

Getting to shoot a Playa Uvita wedding is something special. Located a few miles south of Dominical, Uvita has become an ideal destination for visitors to Costa Rica due to the Marino Ballena National Park. Uvita offers beautiful white sand beaches that are often less crowded than other beaches on the Pacific side of Costa Rica, and is a great place to snorkel and dive.

We made the short drive down the day of the wedding from Manuel Antonio to Uvita. I shot Amy slipping into her dress at a villa in Ojochal south of Uvita while my second shooter, Joseph, stayed with Jesse at their condominium. We reconvened that afternoon at the beach just before the ceremony.

Amy and Jesse had an intimate wedding in Playa Uvita for family and close friends in front of their condominium, Elan at Ballena Beach. They decided to have their ceremony and reception outdoors. Their friends and family witnessed the ceremony on the sparsely populated Playa Uvita, which made it easier for my second shooter and I to get a good variety of shots. Just before the sun went down, Amy and Jesse said their self-written vows to each other and tied the knot with a kiss in front of everyone who had made the journey with them to Costa Rica.

For the reception, they enjoyed a dinner prepared by a local chef underneath the stars. With only a few lamps for light, we had the challenge of getting well lit photos as the family enjoyed Amy and Jesse’s first dance. The rest of the night was filled with music by a local jazz duet, Blue Note Del Sur.

This Playa Uvita wedding was both intimate and touching. Seeing friends and family come together to witness Amy and Jesse’s destination wedding in Costa Rica was a truly endearing experience.
