Gorgeous couple's post-wedding session at Hotel Makanda, Manuel Antonio.

We had an amazing a bride and groom couple’s session at Hotel Makanda by The Sea in Manuel Antonio and at a nearby beach with Allana and Tyler a few days after their wedding. What a difference it makes in photos when a couple is not being pulled in a million directions on their wedding day! Actually, there was no time for a formal bride and groom couple’s session on their wedding day due to delays. Thankfully, they had this session. Now they have great these great photos to complete their love story.

Check out their gorgeous wedding photos at Allana & Tyler’s Playas del Coco Costa Rica Beach Wedding.
