Costa Rica! Oh my goodness was it amazing! Last week my husband and I took a week long trip to Costa Rica with our close friends Mallory & Aaron (pictured below). It was an incredible trip to say the least! We stayed in Potrero which I would highly recommend. The house we rented was a 5 minutes walk to 2 beaches, with 2 more within a 5 minute drive. There were incredible restaurants everywhere and so much to see! We saw a pack of monkeys one night while walking down to the beach in these photos, Playa Penca. It was HOT the entire time we were there, which I love. Give me 90 degree weather with a crap ton of humidity and I am in heaven. Add a beach on and I’m pretty much set for life! Costa Rica has my name written all over it!
One of my favorite things about the scenery were those islands off the coast. I wasn’t expecting them, and there were a ton! The first morning we were there I though a few of the smaller ones were boats, until I realized they’d been in the same spot for hours! April is dry season in Costa Rica, so a lot of the trees were dead (though that didn’t make it any less beautiful there!) and I’ve already told my husband we’re going back after rainy season one of these years so I can see all those islands GREEN! It’s happening.
Mallory & Aaron were so great to let me photograph them during our vacation. I think they’ve accepted the fact that just about anywhere we travel together, I’m going to make them get dressed up for a photo shoot. Get ready to see a lot more of them, because these two our are travel buddies for life! Not that you haven’t seen a lot of them already, what with their wedding, engagement session, and proposal already on the blog! These two are old pros in front of my camera! And they already know, but I just love the crap out of them for putting up with my photographer needs!
