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.

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,

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.

Palmas del Mar Session – Puerto Rico Family Photographer

I love being a family photographer in Puerto Rico. I get to go to a lot of different places and meet a lot of wonderful people. Each portrait session for me is completely different. I don’t go in with a set shot list or agenda. We had a really fun family portrait photography session with this family of six. After shooting some casual shots around the house, we changed locations and headed to the beach. This family was a lot of fun to work with and I think their fun personalities really shine through in these photos. A good portrait is always a collaboration between the subject and the artist. When my clients are laid back and ready to have fun, we all have a good time and end up creating some great images. I like to have a mix of candid, fun shots along with a few more traditional posed shots.

Palmas del Mar is a beautiful setting for taking family photos. The whole island of Puerto Rico is great in fact! Find more info to help plan your trip to Puerto Rico here.

Whether you are local or if you are just visiting Puerto Rico, book your session with Puerto Rico family photographer Erik Kruthoff today and let’s create some priceless together! Sessions cost $250 and include resulting gallery of downloadable digital images. We serve the entire island of Puerto Rico. We are always up for an adventure.

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.

Old San Juan Wedding Proposal and Engagement Shoot

Planning secret proposal shoots is so much fun. It’s such a thrill to help plan and then capture such momentous and meaningful moments. It’s a funny story of how this connection even happened in the first place.

My mother-in-law ran into D’Andree’s father at a pickleball tournament in Arizona and got to talking about how his son is going to Puerto Rico on vacation and is going to propose to his girlfriend. She mentioned I am a wedding photographer in Puerto Rico and offer engagement shoots… and the rest is in the books!

D’Andree and I had a lot of contact ahead of time, and even right up to the last munte to find and settle on the perfect spot.

Here’s some highlights from the mini-session,
