Sintha + Vinny

Dating apps can get a bad rap. But then there are dating app couples like Sintha and Vinny who just make you smile when you hear their stories. You see, Sintha wasn’t even on Tinder a week before she met Vinny…yes the quote on quote “hookup app” Tinder! It didn’t take Vinny too long to take Sintha and himself off of Tinder and become a couple. Three years and many travel adventures later, SIntha and Vinny landed in Costa Rica. As part of the trip, Sintha wanted to do beach photos with Vinny, so she planned a session with yours truly. What Sintha didn’t know is that Vinny had other plans for this shoot…other plans as in the night before their sunrise beach photos in Tamarindo, Vinny messaged me letting me know he was going to propose to Sintha! The early morning lighting and sunrise sky couldn’t have been more magical for what was about to unfold — as the full moon was starting to set over the ocean, with the sunrise sky a pastel pink, Vinny dropped to one knee on the beach and popped the question to Sintha. The setting couldn’t have been more beautiful, and Sintha’s red dress was perfect for the couple’s sunrise beach engagement photos in Tamarindo. Congrats you two!

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!!!

Family Vacation Beach Photos in Costa Rica || Pusch Family

The month of November by far is my favorite month in Costa Rica. The earth is super lush and green from six months of rainy season and the temperatures “cooler”, but with the beautiful weather of dry season. And having been away from Pura Vidadise for 8 months thanks to the ‘Rona, it felt good to arrive back during my favorite month. And to top that off, what better way to get back into the photography swing than with some of the most fun clients?!

One of the things I love the most about being a photographer in Savannah, Georgia is that there is so many different, beautiful places to photograph. You can go from historic downtown Savannah, the beach on Tybee Island,  majestic Oak lined nature trails, to picturesque marsh views. No wonder the Daughtrey Family had a hard time picking…
