Hi, friends! Here’s a random assortment of photos we took (mostly with our SLR cameras and a few GoPro shots too) during our stay in Costa Rica last week (you can see the video here). We had a wonderful trip full of hilarious moments, plenty of time to unwind, and the most colorful, beautiful places to take in. Oh—and frogs. Lots and lots of frogs.
I’m not going to lie; traveling with other bloggers is niceee because everyone understands our crazy need to photograph everything. Even the husbands. God bless these husbands!
Thanks for taking a peek at our trip. Jeremy is finishing up the video, so we’ll have that early next week, and we’ll be sharing swimsuit sources on here this weekend. xo! Elsie

I love looking through all your posts, the photography is outstanding. My fave in this post is the black and white one with the three guys jumping 🙂
What a beautiful house! I´m so sad I won´t really get away this year…
You should look into their classes. There are some classes they provide, like Blog Life, that might be helpful!
Am I missing the post? I’ve looked all over and didn’t see a post on Saturday about the swim suits. I so want to know where they are from!
Thank you for sharing these photos…They are so beautiful, original and real!
thank you so much. I’m so happy you are enjoying the course too!
We use Canons (both the 60D and 5D Mark III) 😀
The underwater shots are taken with a GoPro.
One is vintage and the other is from eBay.
It’s from ASOS.
Hi there! We stayed in Mal Pais. 😀
Hipster holiday at it’s finest.
I went to Costa Rica a few summers ago, and I absolutely loved it! Although we traveled around a bit and did some more active/outdoorsy things like zip lining and river rafting. We had the chance to stay near the ocean, whereat was super hot and humid, but also higher in the mountains, where it was a lot colder and windier. There’s so much variation and beauty there! Pura Vida!
So many fun photos! And i understand your point about travelling with people who understand the importance of taking photos…i always have to ask my friends or family to wait for me while i take photos and i’m feeling like even though they want to protest sometimes, they still make the effort for me and that’s sweet…
Beautiful photos guys, glad you had such a lovely time there, and i actually added Costa Rica to my travel wishlist (never had the idea before, weird…!)
Wow! Amazing photos! Between the black and white photo of the horse in the water and the one with the storm coming over the mountains, I’m not sure if I can pick a favorite. It looks like a beautiful country and one that I never thought about traveling to before… until now!
ahhhhh… all the photos are so beautiful and creative. you guys seemed to had a lot of good time there. 🙂
Laura’s floral sundress with the pom-poms on the bottom… gonna need to know where that’s from. STAT!! It’s summer perfection.
