 It is a gift to be able to capture the spirit of a family in a split second. I cannot recommend Tamarindo Family Photos enough. If you are visiting Tamarindo, spend an hour with Genna. Not only will you have a great souvenir, you will also have a great time.

Genna, Was so easy to work with! With trying to pull off a surprise engagement photo opportunity many things have to go right. She was easy to get a hold of from the states and in Costa Rica. She was just as excited as me for this opportunity and produced amazing photos that will last a life time! Her passion for photography really shows through her pictures. Thank you so Much!!!!!!

We love the pics!  They are great and you really captured some amazing shots.The pics are great and we really enjoyed having you there! I think my mom said it best after she looked at the pics with," they really capture the essence of where the wedding was and the type of setting/ atmosphere that we wanted." Honestly we couldn't be happier.

We loved working with Genna. She is professional and extremely talented, but also so laid back and fun. The photo shoot was creative and easy-going, but the shots could not have been planned better. I would highly recommend Genna and Tamarindo Family Photos!

Have you ever wished that someone in your family or your best friend was a professional photographer so that you could occasionally get some amazing photos of your kids doing the things they love without having to beg them to smile or look at the camera? Or maybe you would actually actually like to be in the photo with your husband and kids? 

A photo shoot with Genna is just like being out with a good friend who is able to put everyone at ease in front of the camera and get some great candid shots of everyone having fun. 

Tamarindo Family Photos is very reasonably priced and the cherry on top is that you get to keep all the digital photos. No more painful decisions about which photos to purchase. -- Lisa Bruce

More than Just Great !! We had Genna at our son's birthday and she' s excellent, very nice with everybody and especially with the kids that loved to play around her. Thank you very much for the wonderful pics, we highly recommend her.

I couldn't of asked for a better photographer than Genna to shoot both my senior & family pictures! They turned out absolutely perfect. She did an amazing job of incorporating the certain style I was looking for into my photos. Not only is she super talented, but she's also very easygoing and SUPER fun to work with! I strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for some great photos.

I'm usually very uncomfortable in front of a camera, but Genna's enthusiasm was catching. I really appreciate her willingness to do whatever it took to get the rolling around in the sand. Awesome. Our photos are priceless.

Dear Genna,


Thank you for the wonderful evening at the river mouth in Tamarindo. We love the pictures you sent us. Everybody thinks they are lovely. The lighting was perfect.

Wanna sweet treat for your elopement?  


It’s Genna Marie!!  The girl is wonderful!  Everything a hopeful couple could wish for…amazingly responsive, amazingly fun, amazingly creative, amazingly spontaneous!  


She went above and beyond scouting out beaches, picking up corsages, sending photos of beaches, giving advice…we loved her AND her wonderful photography.  


Her photos captured our special day perfectly.  

A magical rain shower was caught on film too! These non-tradition photos were PURA FUN, natural and captured all of our personalities to a tee!  


Thank you Genna Marie for giving us the memories of a lifetime!

"We all fell in love with the family pics. Everyone was so thrilled! Thank you again so much for such striking moments between each and every one of us. "


-- Shiloh Hanson

"...Kristina [from Cala Luna] hooked me up with Genna Marie (Tamarindo Family Photos) and she was nothing short of incredible.  The session went great, the group [of 12] loved her, and even the little kids of the group loved their time with her.  That’s no small feat when dealing with 4 little ones that are known to never sit still.


I'd highly recommend her again in the future.  In fact, as a standard practice, you should offer her up as part of your vacation packages, as there is just no better way to capture the wonderful experiences that we were fortunate enough to see and do." -- Kyle Chism

"Amazing photo shoot during vow renewal!! Genna made the session comfortable and fun! My husband and I couldn't be happier with the pictures! We hope to have Genna take pictures once a little one comes along! :)"

Genna caught us in real experiences and the pictures capture our love and excitement on this special day. Thank you Genna!"

"I was so excited for my daughter to have her very first school picture taken. Like any mom, I was anxious to see how the photos turned out. I opened up the envelope and the photos that came out were A M A Z I N G! Genna captured my daughter's personality, creativity and beauty in one snap of her camera. She is super talented and fun; I highly recommend her for any photo shoot, especially family ones." -- Jamie Fautz

"Incredible experience and we LOVE our photos! Genna managed to make it a very personal experience between me and my husband while taking the pics + we had a lot of fun! Highly recommended!!"


--Ale Vasquez

"I had seen some of Genna’s previous work and I was looking forward to her taking some photos of my son, Sam, and me. I am impressed with her ability to direct the subjects (us) and keep us comfortable at the same time, as illustrated in the photos. There were several occasions during the shoot that I even lost track of where she was. I think her idea of focusing on families and family events (including being on vacation) helps fill a niche in the area. I could not be happier with the photos Genna produced for us and heartily recommend her service."

--James Parsi, Facebook

"Great school photos of both my boys! Awesome job and will definitely use Tamarindo Family Photos for any photo needs!"

"Genna took pictures of my fiance, me and our son. We started a little early and decided for babies its best a little later when the sun sets (for me, probably in the early day when babies are happiest). Our son just started teething again, therefore we didnt get a lot of shots without his hands in his mouth, but Genna worked around it. It was so great that she was into everything and positive throughout the shoot with a sometimes fussy baby. It was a nice experience as our first family pictures together!! :)"


--Kaylee Raye


"Geena! Let me congratulate you!I'm just amazed with your photos!
Exc Job!
Thank you very very much!
You made us feel so comfortable during the session that we felt like professional models.
I would love to do it again!!!!!!!
