A little time ago we found ourselves back in paradise– which is located in Costa Rica– in case you didn’t know. Our friends at Stay in Costa Rica asked us to come back down and do some more creative work and we jumped at the chance. Costa Rica has to be one of my favorite places on earth. It’s tropical, exotic, friendly, laid-back, and beautiful. The setting for what we’ve dubbed our colorful beach photoshoot was on a remote beach only accessible by a questionable wooden bridge, where we hand carted all our belongings (including a spare roll of toilet paper– just in case). This day will go down as one of my favorite days in life. It was full of laughs, beautiful scenery, good friends, and lots of impromptu pretty. Everywhere you look in Costa Rica there is something beautiful; fossilized rocks, ornate trees with dangling fruit, bright flowers and picturesque coastlines. This photoshoot had the makings of everything above and more.
For this photoshoot we were inspired by the colorful Costa Rican oxcart and Josh from Metal Mermaid Press put his spin on the intricate design. With a plethora of bright, neon colors, big ball skirts mixed with flowey dresses, sparkle and gathered flowers from where ever Tony could find them– here’s what we came up with with gorgeous images by Carla Ten Eyck Photography.
A huge thank you to Style Me Pretty for featuring our photoshoot. More to come from this gorgeous destination from our incredible horse farm shoot in an amazing glossy wedding magazine in September!
