Playa Tamarindo

Oliver Family

Costa Rica is such an amazing place for a family vacation, especially for a baby’s first international trip with so many hotels + local services catering to young families. And given that Kristen + Austin had honeymooned in Costa Rica, as well as Kristen had travelled to Costa Rica several times prior, the Oliver family knew that this beautiful country was just perfect for their almost one year old daughter Brooklyn’s first international adventure. It also helps to have one adorable and well behaved baby! Brooklyn was nothing short of coy smiles and giggles during her family’s beach family photos in Playa Tamarindo. She loved cuddling with mom, and telling dad that she didn’t want any kisses because of his beard! Sassy señorita!!!! To top of those family beach photos, the sunset put on one magical show, painting the sky in vibrant colors!

Beach Engagement Photos in Playa Langosta || Laura + Richie

Tamarindo has a special way of bringing people together. Like Laura + Richie, who met each other in this tropical beach town a couple of years ago.

Fast forward to 2020, with Costa Rica’s borders closed and the whole world on lockdown because of the ‘Rona, COVID brought Laura + Richie even closer together.
