I recently stayed in Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica for a month and absolutely loved it! I had visited Playa Flamingo the year before with my sister and we stayed at Flamingo Beach Resort but since I went for a whole month this time, I opted for a cheaper option of staying at a condo. Flamingo Beach Resort is awesome though and I love the atmosphere of their open-air lounge, so I still went there often to hang out and watch the sun set on the beach. The lounge also converts into a great wedding reception venue! I would love to photograph a wedding there.
One night, while at the Flamingo Beach Resort lounge, I met Karl and Catherine, who were from Quebec. Karl is actually in the army and came straight from Afghanistan for a three-week leave and was heading back right after his stay in Playa Flamingo. His girlfriend, Catherine, came down from Quebec to meet him. We met one of their first nights in Playa Flamingo and became fast friends and hung out quite a bit since we were all there for a longer period. Karl and Catherine are hilarious and really fun – lots of great memories with these two! I offered to take some photos of them so they would have some good photos of the two of them while Karl was away from home. We took the photos on Playa Flamingo, right out front of Flamingo Beach Resort. : )
