Our videography team recently had the pleasure of shooting Mike and Vane’s wedding at Hotel Sugar Beach in Costa Rica.  These two came all the way from Spain to Mike’s home country of Costa Rica to get married. Today they are having a second wedding celebration in Spain so I thought it’d be a nice time to share the video on our blog.  Happy Wedding Day #2 to these two! To view the film in high definition, make sure the HD icon is blue. To see the video full screen click the 4 arrows icon.


Most of our wedding videography packages include a 1-minute wedding teaser. These are a great asset to our packages since most people are dying to see some footage of their big day soon after the wedding but a full wedding video can take some time to create.  These wedding teasers are delivered 2 weeks after the wedding.

To see more examples of our videography visit our videography portfolio on our website .  Feel free to fill out our contact form to inquire about our pricing and availability.  If you are not yet a fan of New Morning Weddings on facebook be sure to “like” our facebook page

Happy 2014 Everyone!  2013 was the busiest, craziest year of my life.  One of the biggest events was that I got married.  After a long waiting process my husband who is from Costa Rica, finally moved to the US which has been such a blessing.  Business-wise — in 2013, New Morning Weddings started to offer videography services which we have been extremely excited about.  It was a wonderful year and I know that there will be many incredible things to come in 2014.  I’d like to take a moment to say thank you to all of my 2013 clients. I love what I do and one of the reasons is because of how wonderful you all have been to work with. I am looking forward to all of the moments I will experience with my 2014 clients and preserving such important memories.

Not too long ago, we had the honor of shooting Sanjay and Nipa’s proposal at the Westin Conchal in Costa Rica. A proposal shoot is always a fun and unique experience because you get to witness a life-changing moment.  I was so excited when Sanjay contacted me about documenting this special moment.  We set-up our plan and location.   The day of the shoot, I arrived extra early, just incase.  I found my best barrier to hide behind based on where the proposal was supposed to happen and just waited.  This was a very exciting moment and even though I was just the photographer — I actually felt pretty nervous.  Nipa said yes!  It was a very touching experience.  We got some priceless photos of the proposal moments and then went on to shoot some photos on the golf course leading up into sunset.  This hotel is set right on the beach and most people choose to go straight to the beach for photo sessions.  I was glad that Sanjay and Nipa chose to stick around the golf course area.  The photos that resulted, and the sunset color pallet are stunning. I hope you will enjoy seeing these photos from Sanjay and Nipa’s proposal shoot.

Hi Everyone! I know it has been awhile since you have heard from me! We had a very busy spring and summer season. What some of you may not have known is that I have been engaged and got married in September. Being on the other side of things as the bride was wonderful!  I was touched by all of my amazing friends and family who came together to celebrate our special day and I was so happy to marry the love of my life! With working diligently on all of my clients’ weddings and planning my own wedding — something had to give. Unfortunately it was the blog. I just didn’t have time to put into updating my work on here the past few months.

I have many shoots to share with you that I am going to be catching up on in the following months from many engagement sessions, weddings, etc. My sister had a baby in July and I am a very proud aunt! I’m sure you will be seeing some adorable photos of Melody’s lovely baby Anna coming soon on the blog. I am also excited to announce that New Morning Weddings has started offering videography services!  My husband who just moved here from Costa Rica is a very talented videographer and we are pleased to offer this service to our clients! More blog posts to come but here is a quick taste of photos from some of the shoots I have been doing and hopefully some of the full posts you will be seeing in the coming months. I may even post some photos from my own engagement session and wedding! Stay Tuned! Many great photos to come!

all my best,

My beautiful sister and sweet daughter Anna! I'm so excited to be an Aunt!

Erin and Ryan were married in Tamarindo, Costa Rica recently.  The ceremony was at Santa Maria Catholic Church and the reception followed at the Tamarindo Diria.  It was a beautiful wedding and we were blessed with a gorgeous sunset.   I loved that Erin and Ryan arrived and left their wedding ceremony in a horse drawn carriage.   We really enjoyed capturing such a monumental day in the lives of this sweet couple and I hope you will enjoy seeing some of their photos!

This year I have had the pleasure of shooting a few weddings at a location in Costa Rica called Villa Caletas.  It is located on part of the Costa Rican coast where the mountains meet the ocean.  The venue itself has a gorgeous Grecian ampitheater that makes you feel like you are in Europe, not Costa Rica.  I love this location for how different it is and what interesting photos you can get here.  It is such a memorable location to get married at.   I hope you will enjoy seeing photos from Jen and Ryan’s destination wedding.

I feel like this photo has its very own story to tell. Little Sister. Big Sister. Maybe it's because I'm a little sister but I love the moment captured here.
