Cancel gym, turn off the television, and get your eyes on either your laptop, I-pad or cellphone because we have got the cutest Engagement Shoot for you today darlings!
Costa Rica has been on our “must visit” list for so long. The landscape people and culture – it’s everything and more. But wow does this engagement shoot make us want to drop everything and book a flight. This shoot was so intimate, passionate and warm that we couldn’t wait to share it with you all.
SunRae Photography, LLC did such a fantastic job capturing those sweet, gentle moments between the couple, that we now feel connected to their story and journey, and cannot wait for them to say “I do”! You’re in for a treat darlings, so get ready for a little bit of magic from Costa Rica!
FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
Playa Bejuco is not a very well known area of Costa Rica. It is not far from the Jaco, a more touristy area about half an hour north of Bejuco. It’s a shame that not many make it to Playa Bejuco, because it is a land of unspoiled treasures. The small town having only one soda (a family owned restaurant serving traditional dishes) and only one grocery store is known for its spectacular sunsets, sloth and macaw hideouts, and impeccably clean beaches.
I met Agus and David on the day I arrived in Costa Rica for a volunteer project. We all lived together in a shipping container on an eco property where we worked. We spent a month in Bejuco and during that time roamed around various parts of Costa Rica on our off days. You very quickly become close to people when you live, work, and play along side them every day. In this time I saw the love for David and Agus flourish. I always commented about how passionate they were with each other. They claimed it was because they are Argentinian, and everyone acts like that there. But I could see it in their eyes, in the way they so carefully caressed each other, even in the way they played. Everything just fit perfectly with them. Agus was patient with David as she taught him English, and David could handle Agustian’s fiery personality with such grace and compassion.
I insisted that I must photograph them before we part ways. They protested of course, because they had never had images taken of them together. But like putting the last piece in a puzzle, they slid into each others arms seamlessly. I took a back seat during their session and let them interact with each other, uninterrupted. It was the most gorgeous and loving thing I had ever witnessed between two people. They laughed, they kissed, and they held each other until the sun set over the warm, sandy beach.
Thank you so much to Agustina, David and SunRae Photography, LLC for sharing this sweet Engagement shoot with us!
