Kudish Family

Want to know the dilemma when you’re a photographer? You’re not in the photo because you’re the one behind the camera. Sure, you can use a tripod and set the camera to a timer, but if you really want all those moments captured, you entrust those moments to another photographer. 

So when Davina + Daniel, two very talented photographers, emailed me asking if I’d capture lifestyle family photos in Costa Rica for their family of four, I was beyond honored. And a ‘lil nervous because let’s be honest — the stakes definitely are raised when you’re photographing for another professional photographer, nonetheless two at the same time! Ok, to be honest…I’m a ‘lil nervous every client photo session because I value that trust my clients have in my to capture their memories! And so excited too!

Nerves and excitement aside, photographing the Kudish family was so much fun! Charlie and Max couldn’t have been cuter, jumping off fence posts + exploring the low tide rocks with their mom and dad. Add that to that the Kudish family knows their angles (definite bonus to working with fellow photographers!), and I couldn’t stop taking photos! Seriously, the Kudish’s filled up my 32GB memory card!

Gracias Daniel, Davina, Max, and Charlie!!! I’m so happy that y’all loved your photos!!! 😊

Destination Wedding in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica || Jessie + Tanner

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.
