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.

Then on the wedding day, we are like old friends hanging out and it takes some of the awkwardness away.

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.

Lush Life Eleuthera Beach Destination Wedding

The beautiful estate Lush Life was the location for this beach wedding on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. It is located near Governors Harbour on French Leave Beach. This couple had a great crowd and even included a Junkanoo rush and fireworks. Planned and designed by Boy Meets Girl Weddings. Live music by The High Rock Band. Here are some highlights from the day.

The Cove Atlantis Bahamas Wedding

This bride decided I was the photographer for her after she saw my travel photos from Nepal where her family is from. A sense of adventure and authenticity are two things I strive to convey in destination wedding photography. This couple was looking for just that for their beautiful destination wedding at The Cove at Atlantis Paradise resort in The Bahamas. The ceremony and reception were held at the Ocean’s Edge pavilion. Congratulations to the couple!

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!

Intimate Eleuthera Bahamas Beach Wedding

I  love working with couples who have a good sense of adventure. It opens the door for me to try something new and different. After a rainy and windy ceremony huddled under a beach cabana, it hadn’t turned out to be the beach wedding this Austrian couple had envisioned. Luckily, the weather took a turn for the better after the ceremony (including a rainbow!). After we raced across the island to capture some amazing sunset shots.

The following day we went all the way down to Lighthouse Point to take some more photos in better weather conditions. We ended the day at Twin Sisters Beach north of Governors Harbour, squeezing in some final shots before the rain returned.

Vermont Wedding at Historic Hildene- The Lincoln Family Home

Here are some of my favorites from a recent wedding in Vermont. Hildene – The Lincoln Family Home is a classy and elegant venue for a hosting a wedding in New England.

History runs through this beautiful mansion just outside Manchester, Vermont. Nestled above the mountain valley, Hildene – The Lincoln Family Home offers sweeping views of the surrounding Green Mountains. I love to photograph weddings here! It’s historic architecture,  manicured gardens and panoramic overlook offer a setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony that’s hard to beat.

The wedding party and guests were lodged at the nearby Hill Farm Inn, itself a great wedding venue, which is perfect for large groups coming in from out of town. It offers a perfect blend of luxury and rusticity. I definitely want to come back here again.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
