La Fortuna Elopement Photography: Capturing Beautiful Moments in Costa Rica

Experience the Magic of La Fortuna Elopement Photography

La Fortuna is an attractive destination for couples looking to celebrate their elopement. Imagine standing with your partner in front of the majestic Arenal Volcano, exchanging vows, or perhaps in front of the Catarata La Fortuna, surrounded by lush forest and cascading water, as you listen to your partner express their love and commitment.

One of the most beautiful locations in La Fortuna is the Arenal Observatory Lodge, perfect for those who enjoy easy trails and want everything in one place. This spot is just 35 minutes from the center of La Fortuna and offers stunning views of the Arenal Volcano from any part of the property.

The Arenal Observatory Lodge features small bridges, tropical forests, pine forests, gardens, views of the Arenal Volcano, a small waterfall, and a mini lake. It’s perfect for La Fortuna elopement photography! I highly recommend it for couples and family photo sessions.

In this gallery, you can see the intimate ceremony of Charlotte and James.


The Story of a Magical Elopement

To share a bit about this day, we started at the Nayara Springs Hotel with James’s getting ready session followed by Charlotte’s. We then had their first look on one of the hotel’s beautiful bridges. Afterward, we headed to the Arenal Observatory Lodge to walk to a small lake with the most spectacular view of the Arenal Volcano. Here, we celebrated Charlotte and James’s ceremony.


This day was incredible because the Arenal Volcano is often covered in clouds, but on this day, it was completely clear, providing the perfect backdrop. They couldn’t believe their incredible luck.

After the ceremony, we continued with beautiful photographs of the newlyweds. We had a fantastic time sharing this special moment with them.

In conclusion, choosing La Fortuna elopement photography offers not only stunning backdrops but also an intimate and memorable experience. The majestic landscapes of La Fortuna, such as the Arenal Volcano and Catarata La Fortuna, provide the perfect setting to capture the love and magic of your special day.

Celebrate your love story
Joice did the photography for my and my husband’s laid-back elopement in Costa Rica, and she was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the day! While I was getting ready, she and her partner were photographing that, plus beautiful photos of the dress, ring, flowers, cake, etc. Throughout the day she gave us lots of guidance and made sure we had every moment captured. Her familiarity with the location also helped us choose the spot for our ceremony itself, and get some beautiful shots in locations around Arenal. I would absolutely recommend Joice for your wedding or elopement photography!
