What a wonderfull day… and such a cool and fun couple. It was a great conjunction for a perfect Trash the Dress.
Michelle and Tho from England got married the day before with only their close family, they wanted a shooting only for the day after, good for me, so we had some photos in the center of La fortuna with the family before going to Tabacon for some hot springs shots… we stopped on the way when we spotted that nice pasture…
I really enjoy everything, exepted the fact that my beloved 14mm-24mm 2.8 fall from one meter and got stucked to 14mm (not loosing any sharpness)… good that I´ll be in Paris in a week, got to visit Nikon…

Where: La Fortuna center and Tabacon resort and hot spring.
Hannah and Brett were really fun, totally in love and open to every idea, well, in fact she was also terrified to get on top of the limo in case some hidden spiders were there… Everything went fine.

I am just back from a wedding in Arenal, and right after my shooting time (quite rainny…) I saw that the sky got clear and the Arenal volcano stands beautifully under the milky way:

When I discovered the "trash the dress" style and scene, it was like a real oxygen bubble, it opens a lot of new doors, opportunities and pleasure for me as a photographer and business owner… As I am shooting a lot of destination wedding down here in Costa Rica, the customers are maybe more appealed by something different than what they can imagine or accept home… Also we have such wonderful, crazy, exotic spot that it make the shooting a delight for me, and for them… really a win win… I'll post more of those in the coming days…
