destination tropical wedding in tamarindo costA Rica

Jenny + Karl

There’s just something special about witnessing two of your friends get married, and it’s even more specially when you get to capture that special day for them. I first met Karl a couple of years ago through a mutual surf friend, and every time Karl was able to hop down to CR from Canada, we always were out in the water surfing. And over those countless hours in the water together, we talked about Karl’s desire to find an amazing partner and have a beautiful family. If you know Karl, you know that he sets his heart on, he will for sure knock it out of the park.

Enter Jenny, a stunning and vivacious blonde. From the moment I saw Karl with Jenny, I just had this feeling that she was it for Karl. Then baby Vera cake along, followed by Luca, and I was just so happy for my friend Karl who had found his girl and had two adorable babies. So   what was next for Karl? To make it official official with a destination tropical wedding in Costa Rica, a place Karl holds near + dear to his heart?

Congrats you two!

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. I had the pleasure of knowing the two of them before they met each other, and the first time I saw them together, I could feel that they had something special. 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.

The majority of family vacations in Costa Rica typically are for one week. But, there is so much to do and see in Pura Vidadise that the time goes by so fast. My first week long trip to Costa Rica, I definitely felt like I didn’t have enough time, so my second trip I booked for 10 days. And then my third trip…well I ended up packing up my NYC apartment and hopped a flight to Costa Rica for however long I wanted to!!!
