When Anna & John first hinted about taking me to Costa Rica with them to shoot their wedding I was excited to say the least. At the time I didn’t realize all that would be necessary to make it happen. I had already been booked to shoot in the Dominican for Sheila & Mike, and knew there wouldn’t be enough time to return back to Calgary before heading south again. Instead, I hopped on a plane that connected through Panama & dropped me off at an awaiting shuttle bus at the airport in San Jose. Although my driver didn’t speak more than a dozen words in english, he proved to be an outstanding spanish tutor. By the time I got to the resort it was dark and pouring rain. Nothing quite prepared me for the resort (Villa Caletas for those of you interested) – as it is perched, and I mean ‘perched’, on the spine of a mountain overlooking the ocean. It is a spectacular boutique hotel and made for a perfect setting for the wedding. I had an amazing week and look forward to getting back to Costa Rica soon!
