Tamarindo wedding at casa compass

Tiffany + Mike

Tiffany and Mike had known each other since high school, but it wasn’t until they both attended college in Boston that they started to hang out together. Or as Tiffany likes to say, “Mike was one of the shortest guys in high school, so when I saw him in college, I was like, ‘You grew a couple of inches!’” That growth spurt sure helped Mike, because one thing led to another and Tiffany+ Mike started dating. Funny how the Universe has her divine timing, right?!

So when the time came for The couple to decide on where they wanted to get married, given Tiffany + Mike’s love for travel, the Universe guided them to a destination wedding in Tamarindo Costa Rica AND to a photographer that shares the same last name as Mike — Brown! With their closest family and friends, Tiffany and Mike celebrated their marriage with one gorgeous, intimate wedding in Tamarindo.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Casa Compass, the couple exchanged vows and then headed down to the beach for dreamy golden hour portraits. The love between Tiffany + Mike simply radiates — so natural, easily making each other laugh + smile ear to ear. 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.
