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!

First comes photography class, then comes a lifetime of photos together…

Jessie + Tanner’s love story began way back in high school when Jessie was a freshman & Tanner a junior. Because both of their last names started with “W”, they were seated next to each other in photography class. They both had significant others, but there was a spark — they’d innocently flirt, but once that semester ended, they went their separate ways.
