Sexy Sunrise in Playa Langosta, Costa Rica | Costa Rica Wedding Photographers
I can't even! If you're noticed a trend of our Tuesday posts where we've been sharing our Costa Rica adventures we just can't stop gushing about the people and experiences we had there!
Meeting Christina is what kicked off all of our post-workshop sessions and we couldn't be more thankful for making the connection. On top of it all, Christina is a Realtor in Tamarindo. So now we've got the hook up for when we make the jump to buying a house there.
On our first full day in Tamarindo we took a guided tour to a beach for our first of three shoots that week. Christina just happened to be working for Sunset Spearfishing that day! Another Serendipity moment. We also met Carly and Esteban, they'll be on the blog on another Tuesday.
On the trip home from Playa Minas that first day, Dean and I had the chance to talk to Christina about moving to the area. She also introduced us via email to her friend, Mermaid Stephanie. We exchanged emails and then she got me hooked on the WhatsApp App for my phone so we could chat easier than emails. It was there we arranged a nighttime shoot for her and her boyfriend, Alex, coming soon! But we also planned for some sexy daytime photos!

As Costa Rica wedding photographers, one of the services we love offering is our Day After shoots. While Christina and Alex did not get married, this is what a post-wedding shoot might look like! It's up to you! From donning your wedding dress again, to adventures in Costa Rica (Spearfishing with your guests, perhaps!), to sexy beach photos. We love these shoots and only have a few short months to offer them in Maine each year so shooting these year round in Costa Rica is a treat!!
It was another great morning (is there such thing as a bad morning in paradise??) when we met up with Christina and Alex right after our session with Stephanie. Since Christina and Alex were a tad more mobile (no tail!) we walked along the beach sticking to the shady spots for portraits, finding beautiful shells along the way, and talking about the Pura Vida life.
If you happen to follow us on FB you might have noticed an amazing moment we shared from that day as well. After we finished up the session with Christina and Alex, we headed back to our hotel for a swim and a nap, followed by an amazing "ah-ha!" moment when we coined our new brand name (more on that later!). From there we strolled down to the beach to grab some nachos. It was at Witches Rock that we ran into Christina, Alex, and Stephanie also enjoying some killer nachos. There they introduced us to Robert August. Now if you don't know who he is, he's a local legend there, but if you're a surfer you may know him from Endless Summer!! He's an amazing board shaper right in Tamarindo and took Dean and I into his shop to see where he shapes.
All these experiences were just out of this world. I only hope these photos make them as happy as they do us!
