My Family Holiday in Costa Rica

After losing everything in the Lahaina fires, we decided to take our first family holiday in Costa Rica. We headed to Santa Teresa in the Puntarenas province, a beautiful surf town that reminded us so much of our beloved Lahaina. The trip was a much-needed escape and a chance to create new memories in a place that felt like home. Plus, I couldn't help but think about how perfect Costa Rica would be for expanding my wedding portfolio and diving more into destination weddings. The natural beauty and laid-back vibe are right up my alley for more wedding and elopement photography.

Our Costa Rica Holiday Activities

Our Costa Rica trip was a mix of adventure and relaxation. We flew into San Jose and took a long, six-hour journey by shuttle and ferry and shuttle again to Santa Teresa. Despite the long travel time, we were excited to explore. We spent A LOT of time on the beach, taking walks, and checking out neighboring towns. The Latin food was amazing and it reminded a lot of the food back home in Brazil. We also had great adventures, like horseback riding on the beach, spotting wildlife, and enjoying water activities. This family holiday in Costa Rica truly stole our hearts, and we can't wait to return for more unforgettable experiences.

An Epic Spot for Costa Rica Wedding Photos

Costa Rica is seriously a dream spot for a destination wedding. Picture-perfect beaches, lush jungles, and stunning mountains set the scene for some epic "I dos." There are volcanoes, hot springs, bright blue waterfalls, and pretty neat wildlife you won’t see in your average vacation destination. It's so romantic and adventurous, making it ideal for couples looking for something uncommon and frame-worthy. After our trip, I couldn't stop thinking about how amazing it would be to photograph weddings there. The landscapes are so diverse and stunning. I found myself daydreaming at different locations about the most incredible wedding photos I could capture. Costa Rica just has this magical vibe that's perfect for celebrating love in a truly unforgettable way.
