romantic proposal on the beach in
Tamarindo
CostA Rica

Katie + Brett

Katie + Brett first met at a music festival in Brett’s hometown of New Orleans. The two of them hit it off, and soon Brett was giving Katie the local New Orleans experience, as Katie was studying at Tulane. Five years later, Katie + Brett landed in Costa Rica for another music festival. They had a great time dancing the nights away, and on the last day of the festival, Brett had something very special planned. As the sun was starting to set, Brett led Katie down to the beach and asked her to spend forever with him. It was everything Katie had dreamed of and more — a romantic proposal on the beach in Tamarindo Costa Rica. 

Congrats you two!

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.

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.
