This couple is unique, pure Canadian gentleness and lots of love. They came to Costa Rica with all their family and close friends to have a destination wedding at the Hotel Riu Guanacaste
I must say they did great in our tropical weather, coming from a country where snow and cold temperatures are everyday potatoes.

After playing around with the champagne, the bride and her bride maids were ready for the getting ready. I loved these girls were straight to the point and finish hair and makeup very quickly.

The ceremony was short but enough to express all the feelings and say the votes. 
We had some rain, but it was ok.
Everybody was prepared with big umbrellas and while the guest went back to the reception venue, we stay at the beach to play around and take some pictures.

Getting lost in la strada

Getting lost in la strada

 

Italy, June 2017.
Streets are full of people, the summer is getting hotter and while I walk the streets, I realize Rome is everything I expected.
Narrow streets, small windows full of flowers, Prada suits riding the bicycle to work and hundreds of years of history in every corner.

Of course for my purpose Rome wouldn't be enough, so you can repeat the previous text with Milan, Venice, Florence, Pisa, etc.

This selection of photographs is what I believe is street photography and represent unique moments when I was in the right place, at the right time.

Valgiano, far away from the tourist

One of the first things I realized when I visited Italy early this summer is the colossal amount of tourist visiting the main cities.
In Tuscany, the majority of people go to Florence, Siena, and the classic photographic towns in the south of this region. 
It wasn't my intention but I went north and the reward for my decision was tremendous

This is a nine-images-with-short-comment resume of my experience.

Abby & Chris are young lovers from Maryland and Delaware. They chose Costa Rica because it's beautiful nature and the great surfing beaches. 
A private house in Langosta Beach was the perfect place for this adventure, so it was a very small family and close friends celebration.

The Ceremony was held at Cala Luna Point in front of Cala Luna Boutique Villas Tamarindo

Abby had a beautiful bride boho look

Playa Avellanas Wedding Elopement Costa Rica - Amy & Rich

Playa Avellanas Wedding Elopement Costa Rica - Amy & Rich

When you are going to shot an elopement wedding and the couple welcomes you with a couple of beers, you know things are going to get a little odd.

Amy & Rich elope to get married in Costa Rica. They met for the first time here, so it made total sense to join their lives together in front of the same sea who saw their story begin. 

I have to say I was a little nervous since Amy is a successful wedding planner in New York, I was thinking she wanted every little detail completely perfect and planned for her own wedding, and well, that is not my style of work. So at the same time, I was curious about what she wanted me for this unique occasion. 

Long story short, turns out Amy & Rich are the coolest and more relax couple in the whole world and they just wanted to be spontaneous and lovely.

Playa Avellanas Wedding Elopement Costa Rica

Before the ceremony, we didn't have the classic getting ready. Instead, we had beers at Lola's, Playa Avellanas, while we were waiting for the officiant.

Right when the light was getting perfect, we walked to The boardwalk, a famous spot in Playa Avellanas. We took some great pictures of this two lovers being spontaneous.

The ceremony was perfect.The light couldn't be better, the nice ocean in the background, the sound of the waves and the right words at the right moment, these two had a lot to say to each other.

After playing around the beach they wanted to get into the water, but there were having second thoughts. So Amy and Rich decided to play the old Rock-paper-scissors game and see what happened.

Jumping into the water was not enough for them. They wanted to catch some wave as they did the first time in Costa Rica. When you are in love, nothing can stop you from getting what you want.
