A couple of weeks ago I drove up to Guanacaste with my assistant to shoot Sarah and Tyler’s wedding at Cala Luna Hotel in Tamarindo. It was my first time at Cala Luna and I was really impressed by its class and elegance.
The First Look Is the Best Look
The bride’s room for getting ready was beautiful and the walk to the beach ceremony was lush and tropical. Sarah and Tyler decided to have me photograph the “First Look”. This is when the groom sees his bride to be in her wedding dress for the first time, before the ceremony. This was a great idea because Sarah and Tyler could be relaxed and fully express themselves in the moment without all the wedding guests looking on.
The ceremony was held on the beach, which is much different from the beach in Manuel Antonio. It has a lot of rocks, which make for some dramatic photos. We didn’t have much time before the rain rolled in. It rained pretty hard, and luckily the rest of the wedding was to be in a covered area for the reception. The guests and family were all great, and didn’t mind the rain much, and totally got down on the dance floor.
This amazing wedding was coordinated by Alexandria Tomayko from Cala Luna Hotel.
