It was supposed to be the perfect plan: head out for a tropical elopement in Costa Rica to take some gorgeous pictures, get away from the nasty winter weather, and snooze in the sun. Well the joke was on me because the week I was gone, it stayed at almost 80 degrees here in Virginia Beach (only slightly cooler than the 90-95 degrees we were enjoying in Tamarindo, CR). Well played universe, well played.

Tropical Elopement in Costa Rica

It was so much fun getting to visit a new place, travel is definitely one of the reasons I love my job! I’ve always heard how beautiful Costa Rica is, but nothing can prepare you for going from the middle of winter here in Virginia Beach (where everything is brown and dead), to Tamarindo, where you are surrounded by lush and greenery everywhere!

It was definitely amazing to get to check this off my bucket list and take gorgeous pictures for these two! I know that their marriage will be amazing, and we wish them nothing but amazing things in the future!
