Elopement on the Beach in Tamarindo CostA Rica

Lora + John

From the moment Lora met John online, she knew right away that John was the one. In her words, it was love at first sight. John on the other hand took some convincing. Both of them had been in prior marriages, so John took some convincing to venture into another relationship. But love knows how to find its way. Both of them have little girls, and their lives just just easily fit together. As their relationship grew, so did their love for one another, and they welcomed another baby girl. It all just felt so right. Almost a year after they welcomed their third baby girl into the world, Lora and John decided to make it official as husband and wife with an elopement on the beach in Tamarindo Costa Rica. Even though the rain teased with a downpour earlier in the day, the weather cleared up and Lora + John’s ceremony was simply beautiful. With two of their closest friends as witnesses, the couple exchanged their vows right on the shoreline with a romantic, tropical alter. Congrats you two!

There’s always a chance of rain in the afternoon in the South from June to September…hello hot and humid weather creating popup thunderstorms! So you can imagine how interesting it is trying to schedule photo sessions in the late afternoon in Savannah in the summer — you want to take advantage of the late afternoon’s soft lighting, but you also..

Every summer, the Boyle family heads to their favorite place, Costa Rica, for their beach family vacation. And every summer, the Boyle family and I look forward to catching up on the beach in Costa Rica as I photograph the Boyle siblings, Sloan, Blair, and Pierce. Except for this year, the ‘Rona (COVID 19), had other plans, putting the brakes on international travel.
