Costa Rican Adventure Session || Emily + Damien

Oh maaaaannnn, travel sessions make my heart SO happy! For this session I was lucky enough to jet off to Costa Rica with Emily and Damien and spend a whole week adventuring with them! 

Emily and I go waaaay back. We spent a lot of time together in elementary school, but eventually lost contact when we went to different junior high and high schools. Once college came around we saw each other occasionally because we were both in sororities on campus. Damien is also someone I know through Greek life! A little over two years ago Emily and Damien started dating. It was a perfect pair and I was thrilled to see them together!

When the opportunity arose for cheap airfare to Costa Rica we jumped on it! We spent a week together in a gorgeous beachside Airbnb and went on daily adventures. We were lucky enough to find a horseback riding excursion that took us to this gorgeous waterfall tucked in the hills of the Costa Rican jungle and naturally my camera had to tag along. 

Our second adventure came after the most fun filled day. We had taken a catamaran tour to Tortuga Island, snorkeled, rode on a banana boat, hiked, and drank looooots of rum punch and margaritas. Once we got home I told them we had to go take pictures of the sunset! I’ve never actually used my “drunk walk” prompt on drunk people… until this shoot. I think it worked out magically! 

Being able to spend an entire week with a couple made for an incredible dynamic. We went from being long-lost pals to great friends again! I am so lucky to be able to make these connections with the people in my life and I don’t ever want to stop! 

uh, absolutely!
