My clients are mostly women! Women in relationship with themselves, the people they love, and with passion for the world around them!  When I photograph people, I often pause and think "Thank goodness you found me because you are amazing!!" ✨✨ Here's to sharing time with what and whom we love, lighting up the world with more laughter, personal connections, and natural beauty. Oh! And to hugging a tree every now and again like this cutiepatatootie! ✨🌿🌼

These two young ladies were so excited when I said yes, we can do a jumping photo at the end of our portrait session. πŸ˜‚  If only we could all find this much joy in the little things ✨ Also, how adorable are these two sisters in their matching dresses?

Wow!! Oriana Photography was named one of the TOP 25 Wedding Photographers for Costa Rica!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ™€πŸ™Œ This was a happy surprise to find in my inbox, thanks to the travel company We Love Costa Rica.  I'm also happy to see my friend and-sometimes-collaborator @karla_cordero_photography on the list as well! :) To #celebrate - if you're thinking about a trip to Costa Rica.... you know who you are... πŸ˜„ Or already have your wedding booked but not your photographer...
I want to provide an extra special gift 🎁 to couples + families who inquire THIS month about booking me for January, February, March, or April 2018 in Costa Rica. 
Excited for more time with sunsets like these with some of my favorite people. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ Message for inquiries.

Tough day?  We've all been there... Sometimes all you need is a single voice in your ear cheering you on. Consider this my cyber-whisper.  See you on the other side! 
Saying this to myself as well!

I was working at a wedding yesterday. The father of the bride said to his daughter "Others get wet while some feel the rain. One of the many things I love about you is you feel the rain." ❀️ Inspired by this, may we "stop and smell the flowers" today, in whatever way that means to you! .

I hope you love your portraits, Gabi! ❀️

One day I deleted Instagram from my phone. Gasp!! Okay, to be honest I was out of room for pictures and was trying to make temporary space on my phone. :) But I didn't download it back for a while until now. I've also been a traveler this month. .
Stepping away, both online and in real life, gave me time and perspective to come back with more intention, always a work in progress.
.
In addition to portraits with weddings, families (and free spirits!) - you may see s'more travel 'grams too, just for the fun of it. :) Here's to the journey! #cheerstothejourney Thanks for being present!

You know the tradition to throw the bouquet at a wedding? Today I learned more about that! Turns out, in medieval Europe, brides used to tear apart their WEDDING DRESS and throw the tatters for other women since it was considered a fertility charm. Huh! To save the dress, brides began throwing a bouquet instead.

β€œNature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion.”— Lorraine Anderson ✨
...Yes, for me too. I recently printed this image of mine and a couple other nature images to put on my office walls for February. 
It's not the same as walking outside and feeling the air, the leaves -- but still the images are transportive, meditative and comforting. ❀️

Hey friends, good morning! You are beautiful. Your voice matters. 
Lately I've been making time for coffee dates with fellow women, and women who are also business owners.

It's uplifiting to connect, find common ground, and feel a shift in perspective by sharing and listening. 
Stepping away from the daily grind to laugh and connect - and shine light on each other. 
I find inspiration for my own work (and life) flows more easily after giving focus to another person.  I'm way more pumped then when I just focus on my own view of the world.

And to be listened to in return, to be heard... Well, I'm going to get sappy and it's too early for that! #coffeetime 
We're all in this together. ------

"...I walked with you once upon a dream..."
At Melissa + Ben's wedding this summer their friends + family blew bubbles as they walked down the aisle. It's one of those real life moments where there is a communal feeling of magic. A heightened joy. Looking at this image I see a bride with unabashed happiness. I'm right back in that dreamy moment.
Do you have a favorite photo that transports you right to a moment? Maybe it feels like a memory but you wouldn't remember it except for the photo! I'd love to know!

Some super duper cuteness for this Sunday night. 🐢 We're outside, it's Annie & Tyrone's engagement session, they are fabulous and we're pretty much done with photos.  When we come across... a PUPPY ADOPTION SIDEWALK DISPLAY!! Yes! And this little puppy, with his little face and super cute ears and his miniature tongue - well he stole ALL our hearts.

Happy International #Yoga Day! 
Do you have a favorite yoga pose?  I haven't practiced yoga for some time now, but when I was practicing my favorite pose was Shavasana. 
When I learned that #Shavasana means "corpse pose" it changed my approach to the pose and that is when it became my favorite.

I reflected on this for a magazine assignment (back in 2012) and wrote, "The visual of a corpse, of laying in stillness that way, helps my mind to relax.  Many of the thoughts that run through my head, if I'm a corpse, are humourously meaningless.  It definitely gives me perspective.  The pose allows me spaciousness to rest deeply, freedom to let go of the inner to-do lists, and joy to rise back up again." .

This happened at the end of an awesome photo shoot with awesome people. 
Photo of me by πŸ“· @karla_cordero_photography 
I was lucky to have my friend & fellow photographer Karla assist me on a recent portrait shoot with clients. Afterwards we were a lot elated and a little tired (that great feeling after working hard at work you love), and Karla captured this image of me. She's great, and I'm happy to have this image of me and memory captured. πŸ™Œ Follow her brand new Instagram @karla_cordero_photography .

Floral arrangements by @weddingsnosara suit the day perfectly! I love to photograph them. 
My first entry into weddings, before full time photography, was as a wedding planner's assistant. This was super valuable to learn the behind-the-scenes of a smooth wedding day. I also learned basics about flower arrangements. I made #boutonnieres and man, those were harder than expected to get to stay just right - I'm definitely sticking with photography! :) Grateful to see and appreciate the #love, #care, and #details that help create a joyful wedding.
