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.

Old San Juan Wedding Engagement Photo Shoot

We met up in Old San Juan for a little pre wedding shoot with this lovely couple. They will get married at Hotel El Convento in June and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding in Old San Juan. I always take the time to meet each couple ahead of time so we can get a good sense of each others character. Then on the wedding day, we are like old friends hanging out and it takes some of the awkwardness away.

Engagement sessions like these are complimentary when you book your wedding with Erik Kruthoff Photography. It’s just part of the outstanding service and personalized care that makes us unique and sets us apart.

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,

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.

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.

Book your portrait session today! Packages start at $275
