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!

Dorado, PR – Maternity Professional Photoshoot – Cerro Gordo National Park

Here are some photos from a recent maternity portrait session we did near Dorado, Puerto Rico. Although it was a bit overcast and threatening rain the whole time, we used that to our advantage and really focused on getting natural and vibrant colors.  A good photographer will always find a way to make it happen. Here’s some of my favorites from the shoot. The red dress she is wearing is perfect for the location and really gives the images that extra ‘pop’! Congratulations to this growing family!

Nassau Bahamas Wedding Proposal Photo Session.

It was a lot of fun preparing and photographing this destination wedding proposal for a fellow professional photographer in Nassau, The Bahamas. The couple arrived on a cruise and rented a vehicle to explore the island. I went to Jaws Beach ahead of time and planted a “Message in a Bottle” a the end of the pier for her to discover, all the while posing as a sunbather to capture the moment. We went around Clifton Heritage Park afterward to capture a few more shots. Congratulations!
