Lately, the Tamarindo estuary near Playa Grande has been a favorite spot for family photos, small weddings and elopements. There is plenty of beach there no matter what the tide is like, and the sunsets have been KILLER. I finally got the sihlouette shot I've been after at this private elopement with Amy and Ross.

Eloping in Tamarindo, Costa Rica
I helped Louise plan her perfect elopement in Playa Langosta, just south of Tamarindo, Costa Rica. It was perfect!
I helped Louise plan this beautiful elopement about two months before her Costa Rica wedding.
Such a beautiful bride!
I love photographing the bride getting ready just before the elopement ceremony.
Black and white photos are classics.

Elopement at the Villareal FIESTAS!!
I can't think of a much better place to experience true Costa Rican culture than at the fiestas in Villareal. Can you? This brave couple eloped to Costa Rica and we did their wedding photos at perhaps the most unique location in the history of time: in and around the bullring and carnival at Villareal. It was insane. Check out the photos below for a preview of what went on.

Then we hit the beach for some normal shots.
Bring it in for the smooch.
There's nothing like a Tamarindo elopement.

Elopement at Sugar Beach
This elopement at Sugar Beach couldn't have been more perfect! The moment we got hot the clouds parted and treated us to a little sunshower, which passed almost as quickly as it arrived. This small wedding at Sugar Beach – which is just a half hour to 40 minutes from Tamarindo – conisted of the bride, groom and their teenage daugther.
This was one of my favorite photos from this tiny intimate wedding!
You couldn't ask for a more beautiful beach to get married on.
