tiare. bridal shoot.
When you have a houseguest this gorgeous and personable, you don't let them get away without making them pose in a wedding gown on your favorite black sand beach. That's the rule. So when Amy's friend Tiare was visiting Costa Rica for the last couple weeks I tracked down an awesome gown (90% off retail!) and Amy and I brought her to Playa Carbon one early morning for a little trash the dress shoot. Only we didn't have the heart to actually "trash" the dress since it still has a second life ahead of it on ebay. We did get it sweaty, sandy, and a little bit dirty, but we managed to keep it dry and free from sea slugs. And as you can see, we captured some amazing images and had a blast.
