DARREN + KRISTA | MANUEL ANTONIO COSTA RICA

When the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica to shoot a wedding came up, it took about half a second for us to decide … heck yes!!

Darren and Krista had the most incredible wedding held at Casa Fantastica, one of the most incredible villas built into the mountainside of Manuel Antonio.  From the ceremony to the décor to the sky lanterns, every detail was perfect thanks to the amazing destination wedding planners Karen and Anahi from Tropical Occasions.

Krista is a do-it-yourself bride who customized her wedding dress and Ivanka Trump shoes for that little ‘extra touch’.  And who can resist the bow ties on these ring bearers!

Krista and Darren are such an amazing couple.  In place of wedding gifts they asked their friends and family instead to donate school supplies to one of the local schools in need.  When we arrived at the school to deliver the supplies everyone was so surprised to see all of the children running out in excitement to meet us and say thank you!  They even had a dance and performance planned for us.  It was such an incredible feeling to see these kids and their genuine excitement and gratitude, all thanks to this incredible couple and all of the amazing people who donated.Destination Wedding Planner: Tropical Occasions

    Wow! What an awesome job you guys did! And how amazing is that experience at the school!? Really incredible stuff.

  • Seeing the full-scale image of the bride is just beautiful. It's so soft and dewy, and yet her eyes POP ! Well done. And the final photos at the end- of the kids taking photos of you got me a little choke-y! So sweet. Loved this set of images Brandon!

    As a bride, having the right wedding photographer was so important to me and I put a lot of effort into searching for the perfect company. We are from Texas, got married in Costa Rica, and hired photographers from Canada that we had never met! People thought we were a little crazy - but it was the best decision we made. I am so grateful that we found you guys and that you were willing to be a little crazy too and come to our destination wedding! We hope to see you again and we cannot thank you enough for the wonderful experience of having you as our wedding photographers. You sure know how to make an un-photogenic woman take a good picture!

    Amazing job guys!! Beautifully captured as always. The generosity of Darren and Krista had me tearing up (what a great idea in loo of favours). I love how you captured everything that went on at the school. So great!
    Costa Rica is really inching to the top of my favourites list too. The pure, untouched nature, the warm-hearted, upbeat people.... what's not to love! Pura vida! : )
