Rincon, Puerto Rico Airbnb Destination Wedding

Here are some photos from a recent destination wedding in the laid-back surfing town of Rincon, on the very tip of the west coast of Puerto Rico. This couple had a DIY approach and rented a big Airbnb in the countryside and held the ceremony right  there in the backyard. I love these smaller group weddings as I get a chance to meet everyone and really get to capture people’s personalities and relationships.

We offer custom wedding photography packages to suit whatever you may need. For example, this family wanted to add on an extra wedding photo session in Old San Juan after the wedding. We are flexible and can help you determine your photography needs for your wedding in Puerto Rico.

Let’s see some pics!

Puerto Rico Wedding – Hotel El Convento

Imagine a destination as grand and storied as the “Isle of Enchantment” itself, nestled just steps away from historic landmarks and nightlife. Old world charm and elegance meet contemporary comfort and luxury at Hotel El Convento. Built in 1646, it was the first Small Luxury Hotel of the World member in Puerto Rico and is the oldest member of the Historic Hotels of America.

Hotel El Convento is without a doubt one of the premier locations in Puerto Rico to host a wedding. The colorful historic neighborhood of Old San Juan serves as the perfect backdrop to your special wedding day. As a photographer, I always have so much fun shooting at this venue.

Surprise Wedding Proposal in Paradise – Puerto Rico

Scott called me up and said he was planning to propose to his girlfriend on their upcoming trip to Puerto Rico and needed some help planning and capturing the moment. He wanted somewhere that was naturally beautiful and intimate. I knew just the place to suggest and asked if they were up for an adventure!

We drove on windy roads way up into the mountains and found a perfect little slice of heaven at Cascada Las Delicias in Jayuya, Puerto Rico. She had no idea he was about to propose!

Afterwards we drove over to climb up a mountain and watch the sunset at Cerro Mime.

Congrats to the couple! Here are some of my favorite photos from this magical wedding proposal photo session in Puerto Rico.

Sessions start at $275 and include digital .jpeg downloads. Contact Erik today and book your professional photography session!

Bahia St.Regis Puerto Rico – Beach Engagement Session

Surprise wedding proposals take a lot of planning, and we love to help you create the perfect moment. The secluded and serene beach at Bahia St. Regis in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico is our backdrop.  I waited with my beach blanket and cooler, acting like a normal beach-goer. She even gave me a friendly wave as they walked by on what she just thought was her ordinary routine, evening walk. What she didn’t know is that I was flying a drone above them filming the whole thing and had my cooler full of cameras to capture the moment!

Here are some of my favorite shots from our first mini-session. More to come when we do our next session!

Engagement and surprise proposal photography packages start at $375. Conctact Erik today to book your session.

Couples Photo Session in Old San Juan

It’s a rare occasion when you and your partner share the same birthday. That’s exactly the case for this  salsa-dancing couple from New England on vacation in Puerto Rico. We met up in Old San Juan and I showed them around to some of my favorite spots.

Taking photos in Old San Juan never gets old. It’s a photographer’s playground. While I have some “go-to” shots, I always keep a keen eye for something different and magical to happen. Each photo session is unique and it’s often these unplanned shots that end up being the best.

We are now offering $250 photo sessions for the rest of 2020. Call or text to check for availability.

Here are some of my favorite photographs from the portrait session,

Top 10 Reasons To Elope in Puerto Rico

Let’s face it, weddings are gonna look a little different now that gathering in large groups is out of the question. That doesn’t mean that love is cancelled, though!

Are you looking for the perfect destination for your elopement wedding? Puerto Rico should be at the top of your list.

Take the opportunity to do something a little adventurous and different, while saving some money in the process. Here are the Top 10 Reasons that make Puerto Rico the ideal location for you elopement or mini-wedding.

10: No Passport required: As a U.S. territory, Puerto Rico allows you to have an “exotic” destination wedding without the hassles of passports, visas, customs, and immigration. What is more, there are direct flights from more than 20 U.S. cities, making it an easy hop over.

9: Only the best parts of Latin America and the Caribbean: Puerto Rico culture is the best of both worlds with great music, dancing, food, people, nightlife, and affordability but you can drink the water and the island is clean.

8: World-Class Accommodations that meet U.S. standards: No need to wonder about what a 3-star hotel really means here. Hotels and restaurants adhere to U.S. guidelines. All of the best, familiar brands are here including Ritz Carlton, Marriott, Fairmont, Hyatt, St. Regis, and Vanderbilt as well as Boutique offerings that rival others the world over.

7: No decisions=No headaches: We line up all the best vendors and plan every detail of your big day to be just right for you. The only decision you have to make is to come to PR and we take care of everything else.

6: Weather: With 365 days of sunshine and an average temperature in the 80s, you can get married here any time of year. Even on the rainiest day, precipitation rarely covers all of the island. So put those jackets away, grab a swimsuit, and come enjoy some Vitamin D.

5: Covid-cautious: Puerto Rico has taken extreme precautions since March 2020 to prevent the spread of Corona Virus and Covid-19 and it has worked. Levels of the illness are lower than almost anywhere else in the U.S. Our socially distanced ceremony planning will  ensure that the risk is minimal.

4: Whatever you want, we got it: Barefoot beach wedding? First kiss under a waterfall? Newlywed among rainforest ferns? Exchanging rings in the most historical sights the U.S. has to offer? Whatever you desire for your wedding landscape, Puerto Rico has it.

bride and groom walking on the beach in Puerto Rico

3: Always private, always intimate: Big weddings are OUT. You want a wedding that is all about you. The low population of Puerto Rico and endless list of ceremony locations ensures that you will be the spotlight of your own wedding. No competing with tourists or other weddings for the venue here.

old san juan weedding

2: Affordable: Did we mention that Puerto Rico is Latin America? As such, the prices of food, accomodations, and entertainment are lower than those of most Caribbean destinations.

and the top reason to elope in PR is…

1: Fun: Above all else, Puerto Ricans know how to have a good time. Our couples are laid-back folks looking for fun, adventure, and memories that will  last a lifetime without the stress of planning a wedding. If this sounds like you, a Puerto Rico elopement will not disappoint.

Dorado Beach Engagement Session

I recently met up with Shay and Carlos for a sunrise engagement photo session on the beach in beautiful Dorado, Puerto Rico. I knew the early start time wouldn’t phase them since they both work as flight attendants for Delta. They live in the Us and have family in both Puerto Rico and Mexico, which is where the ceremony will be. It was really important to them that Puerto Rico was incorporated into their wedding story and here are the results!

I love the calmness of shooting in the early morning and how the quality of light changes so much so quickly. It starts and shifts from a dull, subtle blue to glowing hard, warm light. I am pleased we took advantage of the conditions presented to us and created some really nice images together.

Afterwards, we met up in Old San Juan to take a few more shots before they had to jump on a plane back home.
