Meet Your Costa Rica Destination Wedding Photographers
Hi! We’re Andrés and Lindsay.
We met in mid 2015 in a quant coffee shop in San José while Andrés was on vacation in Costa Rica. We chatted for hours that day about everything under the sun. I never believed in love at first sight or the first conversation, but on that day, we fell in love and still are in love.
We stayed in contact after Andrés left, and Andrés decided to make several more trips. During each one, we became even closer. The time between visits felt like an eternity. He proposed one night in November, and I said “I do”, happily. Earlier that day, he played a trick on me, telling me he had a gift, a something made of precious metals and stones. I thought he was going to propose. Nope. He didn’t. It was a beautiful pair of earrings. I was disappointed. The diamond engagement ring he later proposed with was anything but a disappointment. I hardly ever take it off. It’s the symbol of our love for each other. Andrés moved to Costa Rica in December, and we got married on the beach at Villa Caletas in Herradura at sunset. It was a beautiful wedding in an amazing place.
During our many conversations, we discovered we shared a deep passion for photography. Andrés was a professional photographer for about 8 years in Florida while pursuing and undergraduate at New College of Florida and later an M.A. in linguistics at the University of South Florida and at Middlebury College during the summer. He stopped shooting professionally when he became a full-time professor. I was an amateur photographer in Costa Rica shooting weddings, family events, some portraits, and nature. Andrés has helped take my photography skills to the next level, and then some. The day after we got married we decided to start Arenas Foto, in February of 2016. We wanted to be part of the magic of getting married in all the amazing wedding venues Costa Rica has to offer. We are not only a team in our personal life, but also in our professional life.
Between us, we have photographed over 200 weddings, and every time we book a wedding or engagement, we still get excited. We love working together as a team and making our client’s wedding day memorable. More importantly, we love when our clients tell us how much they love their wedding photos.
We are currently accepting up to 15 weddings per year.
See if we are still available for your wedding or engagement!
