The most romantic wedding I’ve been to… Drew and Oh elope on the beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

The most romantic wedding I’ve been to… Drew and Oh elope on the beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

A few weeks ago Drew called me up to discuss having some photography done to celebrate his marriage to Oh. They had had a civil ceremony back in the states but wanted something extra special to commemorate to occasion. We talked a little bit about ideas and locations and settled on Pools Beach and Steps beach. When we arrived at Pools we had the beach to ourselves. It was just the three of us there with the sun and sand and sea as the only other witnesses. Drew and Oh had both written out their vows on cards that they had in special red envelopes. I took photos as they recited their vows to each other. We were all moved to tears that then became smiles. It was the simplest and most romantic ceremony I have ever photographed. I felt honored that they selected me to be there and share the space with them.

After that we went over to Steps beach, one of Drew and Ohs favorite beaches they had discovered while they were here. We got to play around a bit on the beach, jumping and making funny faces. The photo session was a lot of fun and ended with a gorgeous red and orange sunset. I wish Drew and Oh all the best as they start their lives together.

Sunset Romance… we couldn’t have asked for a better way to end our photo session than with a gorgeous Rincon sunset.

The off camera lighting really helps make this photograph look like something out of a magazine. I absolutely love my alien bees for doing pictures on the beach at sunset.

This last photograph is one I did pointing my camera directly into the soft box. I love being able to use studio lights outdoors. This technique is quickly becoming one of my signature shots.

Scott and Colleen – Villa Cofresi – Rincon Wedding

Scott and Colleen – Villa Cofresi – Rincon Wedding

Scott and Colleen were married at the beautiful and tropical Villa Cofresi Resort and Hotel, in Rincon, Puerto Rico this past October. Everything about this wedding said Tropical fun! Her fantastic hand beaded bouquet as well as all the tropical seashells, and colorful touches made for a playful and romantic celebration. I absolutely loved the hawaiian t-shirts and tropical flowers. The whimsical murals on the walls at Villa Cofresi made great back drops for some of our pre ceremony pictures. The couple was also blessed with a gorgeous sunset that made for fantastic photographs as well.

Bridal Portraits -Wedding Photographer- Rincon Puerto Rico

I’m really a portrait photographer at heart, that’s why I love photographing weddings so much. There are only a few occasions in a persons life when they get to have their portrait taken professionally and weddings are one of those occasions. Over the course of the wedding day there are lots of different moments for pictures and different kinds of portraits. My favorite time with a bride is right before the ceremony just after she’s put her dress on. Her make up is fresh, and she is usually surrounded by her closest female friends and family, so it’s a very supportive environment. There is a lot of anticipation and excitement. I shot these photographs of Brooke before her wedding in Rincon. The light on the balcony was perfect. There are always lots of colorful photographs during tropical beach weddings but I chose to edit these in high contrast black and white.

These photographs were shot on the balcony of Pelican Point at Sandy Beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

Creative Engagement Photography – Double Exposure & Infrared Photography at the Lighthouse – Rincon, Puerto Rico

Creative Engagement Photography – Double Exposure & Infrared Photography at the Lighthouse – Rincon, Puerto Rico

Tamara and Jason met as correctional officers in the United States (Yes of course I had to ask her about Orange is the New Black!… and she told me that for the most part its pretty true to life), they were partnered together for self defense classes. We did this wonderful day before photoshoot at the Faro (lighthouse) here in Rincon. Their destination wedding was right down the beach from where we did this engagement style portrait session. I find that destination wedding photographers in puerto rico can sometimes get in a rut with coming up with creative portrait ideas since we are usually photographing on the beach. Using some creative photography tricks any place can become the perfect spot for portraits. Pre and Post photo sessions are great because there is extra time to spend focusing on making wonderful images, there also isn’t the pressure of a time line or other people around. During Tamara and Jason’s session I did some more creative photography; double exposures and I also used my infrared camera. Having the extra time and space as well as a couple who is up for making something beautiful is the best space to create amazing new pictures. I always highly highly recommend doing an additional portrait session as an add on to wedding photography. I tell my friends that most photographers will even do it at a discounted rate if they are already doing the photography for the wedding. Its always worth it and another chance to have fun in front of the camera… and if you doing a post wedding session it could be another opportunity to wear your dress!

Flour Power! High speed photography Creative Photography Portrait session

Flour Power! High speed photography Creative Photography Portrait session

Hey Hey! So I had the chance to have some fun last night with some friends and some flour in an abandoned building in Mayaguez. Beth runs a traveling art gallery out of her RV in the states and collects different kinds of animal bones to turn into jewelry and household items. I’d been dying to do some more highspeed photos and I was excited to try out the flour.

I think this technique would work really well as part of a second day photoshoot or ‘trash the dress’ session. The white flour won’t stain a white dress and the look is incredible. It would be a lot of fun the day after your wedding to go crazy throwing flour all over each other. I’ve even seem pictures done using colored powder and glitter mixtures…. the possibilities are endless.

Infrared Waterfall Creative Portrait Photography Session

Infrared Waterfall Creative Portrait Photography Session

This beautiful waterfall is just a few minutes north of Rincon and its a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. I hadn’t been up to these falls since I was in high school… seeing them brought back so many memories. Especially being on the trip with 19 year old Marina from western florida. She and her boyfriend were adventuring around the island and decided to take a trip to the falls. I watched as her boyfriend snap some photos of her and I could tell she wanted some more glamorous shots to commemorate her trip. I had my infrared camera on me and offered to take a few photographs. Infrared photography is a lot of fun and is a great way for me as a portrait photographer to add some creativity into a photo session. These are a few of the images I made of Marina that day.
