Playa Hermosa Costa Rica Wedding-

I can’t even begin to describe the magic of the Playa Hermosa Costa Rica beach wedding I photographed at Villas Sol two weeks ago.  The love that the couple shared (for privacy I am omitting their names, but let’s call them Señor Prince Charming and Señorita Mermaid) truly radiated throughout the whole afternoon.

The marshmallow puff clouds and beautiful beach at Playa Hermosa provided a stunning backdrop to this magical wedding. Señorita Mermaid wore a gorgeous, boho-chic wedding dress that she found on ebay. Her mother added a beautiful finishing touch to the dress with a handmade pearl necklace that draped down Señorita Mermaid’s back and hugged her slim waist. She wore an intricate wire flower crown and foot jewelry, as well as carried a beautiful bouquet made from tropical flowers and stunning orchids. The finished vision was as if Señorita Mermaid had emerged from the turquoise ocean to marry her Señor Prince Charming. Yes, that stunning.

And to top off such a magical wedding and amazing afternoon was Señorita Mermaid’s beautiful review,

“Kristen was an amazing photographer, we couldn’t have been happier with our experience. She photographed our wedding on the beach, made everyone feel comfortable, and encouraged shots that turned out beautifully. Her turnaround time was only three days, which was impressive (we got lucky with her schedule.) The editing job was great, and everyone enjoyed the photos. She’s also extremely responsive before, during, and after the wedding day. And finally she’s just cool and funny! 🙂 “

Did you read that? I am cool and funny! I am doing a little happy dance right now and sending thankful vibes out to the universe for having such amazing clients! Many, many thanks go to Señor Prince Charming and Señorita Mermaid for making my job so much fun and rewarding! Wishing you two lovebirds a lifetime of happiness!

XOXO,

Kristen
