Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve – Puerto Rico – Family Vacation Photoshoot

This lovely family from Massachusetts came back to Puerto Rico, repeating a vacation 5 years earlier. They wan to remember this time in their lives with a professional family photography portrait session. They called me up and I headed over to Rio Grande, Puerto Rico to the beautiful Hyatt Grand Reserve resort. These days, the resorts are almost empty and so it feels like we have the place to ourselves. We had a lot of fun!

Here are some of my favorite photographs from the day. Contact us today to book your own session! Package price including digital files is $275.00.

Ritz Carlton Reserve – Dorado Beach – Family Photography Session

Check out some family photos from a recent holiday family portrait session at Ritz-Carlton Reserve Dorado Beach. An annual family photo shoot is a great way to mark the years.  It can preserve a beautiful record of your family as they grow. Originally planned for an all beach shoot, a windy day made us switch things up and choose a more protected area. I love these shots with the giant ficus tree in it and provides adds to the great sense of ‘growth’ and family.

Call us and book your session today. Send an email to info@erikruthoff.com for any inquiries. Family Photography packages with edited digital images included start at $275.

Dorado Beach Family Photo Session

The beaches near Dorado are great for taking photos. I have no idea if it’s true, but I  like to think the town’s name ‘Dorado’, meaning “golden” in Spanish, comes from the warm, glowing light that washes over the coast each evening.

Here are some shots from a recent beach family portrait photo session in Dorado.

Family Portrait Photography Sessions are available anywhere in Puerto Rico for $275 and include digital images.

Celebrating Their 5 Year Wedding Anniversary in Old San Juan – A Travel Photography Session

Nicole and Derek found me through Shoot My Travel and we met up in Old San Juan to take some photos, celebrating their 5 year wedding anniversary. This adventurous couple told me they love to get photo sessions when they travel and that afterwards they hardly take any others the rest of the time. They said it’s nice to not be burdened by getting photos and relying on asking strangers to snap a photo to remember their trip by. It gives them more time to soak in the experience and be present in the moment knowing their experience has been captured beautifully.

Surprise Wedding Proposal in the Amazing Natural Beauty of Puerto Rico

Making images that combine different genres of is one of the ways that I love to explore the craft of photography. I love it when I am able to use elements of Landscape, Portraiture, Documentary, and Wedding Photography simultaneously to create unique and meaningful images.

Steven wanted to propose to his girlfriend Ashley on their vacation to Puerto Rico. He wanted to pop the question in a spectacular way at a beautiful location. We coordinated ahead of time and came up with a game plan. We decided on the location and the exact spot. I arrived early to find my angle and then act like a tourist so that Ashley wouldn’t suspect anything. The resulting engagement photo session…

Epic!

The cliffs and arches of La Cueva del Indio provided for the perfect backdrop to this awe-inspiring moment!

Cheers to Steven and Ashley!

Bahamas Destination Wedding – Grand Hyatt Baha Mar – AnnMarie & Josh

I had the privilege to photograph another beautiful destination wedding at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas. I always love to photograph destination weddings there. The planning staff at the resort always are very professional and they make sure they put on a great event every time. Wildflowers took care of flowers and decorations.

AnnMarie and Josh, like most people, are self-described introverts. They don’t feel exactly comfortable with a lot of attention thrown towards them and a camera thrust in their faces. That’s why I always approach wedding photography in a relaxed, easy-going manner. My goal is to make you feel comfortable and forget that I am there. The way I shoot weddings , using a Documentary/Photojournalism style, means that it doesn’t take a huge production to get beautiful and meaningful images.

Everyone always asks me at the start of a wedding day, “What am I supposed to do?”.

My response is, “Well, nothing. Just have fun, enjoy your company, be present, and soak in the moment!”

A wedding is naturally full of photogenic moments. The trick is being able to anticipate them and be ready to capture them. Having to set something up or arrange anything is unnecessary if you are present in the moment.

Here are some of the highlights from AnnMarie and Josh’s gallery,

Dorado Beach Family Photography Session – Embassy Suites Dorado Del Mar

We took a casual and laid back approach to this quick family photography session at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Dorado Del Mar Beach Resort in Puerto Rico. I always like to try and capture little moments along the way to getting the “Christmas Card” group-posed shot that is expected. These candid moments often tell more about people’s personalities and relationships with each other than a posed group portrait will. That’s why I try to do both!

I offer Documentary Family Photography Sessions which provide a different approach to typical family photo shoots. It’s about celebrating the stories and beauty of everyday normal life.
