You know what wedding photographers love? That awesome opportunity to hop on a plane and shoot a wedding in a exotic location that’s what. Jessica and Brad from Louisville, Kentucky who we introduced on the blog back in June asked us to come to La Mansion Inn in Quepos, Costa Rica for their beautiful wedding a couple weekends ago.
In order for us to get to Quepos we had to take a little tiny airplane from San Jose to Quepos. The airstrip we landed on was probably about the size of some driveways out in the Hamptons so that was a little scary/cool. La Mansion Inn was a beautiful location and everyone who worked there was really nice. We learned about how wild of a country Costa Rica is, sometimes you can spot sloths and monkeys! (we only saw wild horses!)
On the wedding day Jessica and Brad saw one another before the ceremony and we took a cab down to the beach for some epic midday beach portraits. It was pretty hot and we were all sweaty by the end of it, but I think that amazing blue sky and lush green palm trees make up for it. They had a small, intimate ceremony on the upper lounge deck of the hotel followed by some celebratory champagne toasts. Everyone (even Jason and I!) sat down to a nice dinner that evening followed by a late night swim by the groom and his groomsmen!
