Costa Rica Destination Wedding : Nosara Mountain Top Wedding

i would love to sit here and write a alot about this wedding which was very special to me, but i’m not much with words. i think the photos do say it all.

paul rowland and i travelled all the way to nosara costa rica to photograph terence and britney for a few days with their closest family and friends. it was a once in a lifetime experience and i’m so thankful to have been a part of it.

also, i photographed britney and terence’s engagement session in NYC last fall.
