Intimate Puerto Rico Wedding Elopement – Cerro Gordo National Park

You, me and the sea. Elopements are all about creating a beautiful, intimate moment. Why not cut out all the noise and distractions of planning a traditional wedding and instead focus on each other? Sounds wonderful, right?  Erik Kruthoff Photography offers simple, complete elopement packages customized to fit all your needs. Your dream wedding doesn’t have to bankrupt you, either. Our complete Puerto Rico island elopement packages start at just $999. Each package includes planning, enactment of ceremony with a certified officiant, and of course… the photography! Reserve your date today.

This recent destination elopement with Shawn and Jonathine, we decided on Cerro Gordo National Park as the backdrop. Just outside Dorado, PR the park offers stunning coastal views and beautiful scenery in all directions. David Mariani served as officiant and met with the couple ahead of time to customize their ceremony. Planning and Photography coordinated by Erik Kruthoff.

Here’s some highlights from their amazing Puerto Rico wedding elopement. Congrats to the newlyweds!

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.

We are now booking 2021 and 2022 weddings in Puerto Rico. Call us today for a quote!

Hyatt Baha Mar: Bahamas Destination Wedding – Erik Kruthoff Photography

I love it when my couples are just chill and have a go-with-the-flow attitude. The bride and groom from this Bahamas destination wedding, Dane and Amanda, were definitely that way. They trusted that I would do my thing and get some great images of the day and I know they were grateful. Now they can relive the experience over and over by looking back at them. That’s why I especially like shooting in a photojournalism style. You really can get some great storytelling images while giving a real depiction of the emotions and events on these special days. I can’t stand when I see other wedding photographers only taking super cheesy and cliche photos.

The newly opened and magnificent Baha Mar resort in Nassau, Bahamas served as the perfect place for this wedding. There’s so many beautiful spots that you don’t even need to be on the beach.

Here’s what the bride’s mother had to say afterwards,

Erik,

OMG, Amanda and I just sat down together and looked at all the pictures.  I’m speechless.  I love all of them and I am so grateful that you were able to catch all these beautiful images so we can remember our happy celebration.  Thank you again. We are so truly grateful.
Thanks,
D.G.
