Puerto Rican Wedding Photographer | Destination Weddings | Rudy & Marta

This Puerto Rican wedding was to die for.  A little backstory before before we get into the nitty gritty.  We met Gabi and her mom back in the day.  I think it was late 2014, if I remember correctly.  I could be wrong.  We were at one of our first bridal shows.  I think we had done maybe four or five before that.  We never really got too much into it any earlier because of how we treated the business.

“It would make sense to take a Puerto Rican Wedding Photographer from Florida with them.  Especially someone they already know how to work with.”

Here comes Gabi and her mom.  All they talked about was doing an engagement session, which came out beautifully.  We were talking about going with them to Puerto Rico for the wedding and photographing it.  Initially, they said no.  They didn’t want to and all they were looking for was an engagement session for their save the dates and possibly their invitations.  We all agreed on simply having an engagement session.

I’d like to think that we blew them away with how much fun and how easy it was for them that they couldn’t help but take us with them to Puerto Rico, but what do I know?  Immediately after delivering some save the dates that Marta designed, we got an email from Gabi saying that she would love to have us go with them.  It would make sense to take a Puerto Rican Wedding Photographer from Florida with them.  Especially someone they already know how to work with.

Fast forward to February 28th, 2016.  We’re driving North from Caguas to San Juan in hopes to check into our hotel and getting ready for an amazing wedding.  The wedding passed by in a flash.  La Hacienda Siesta Alegre was a piece of paradise.  I can completely and totally understand why Gabi and Gabe wanted to get married there.  It’s a perfect representation of their love for each other and touches on their heritage and backgrounds.

“It sprinkled for about five minutes, but it was enough time for a rainbow to pop up on their Puerto Rican Wedding day.”

It sprinkled for about five minutes, but it was enough time for a rainbow to pop up on their Puerto Rican Wedding day.  Their reception was on point.  Everyone was on the dance floor at least once.  Everyone was active.  No one stopped partying.  Heck, they hit up a couple of bars after the wedding venue closed.  I still remember to this day hearing them down the hall in the hotel when Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar (spoiler alert: they were stoked).

Something that we talked to them about was having a session around Old San Juan.  Kind of like a Trash the Dress session, but not.  At first, it was something that they were excited about, but didn’t really have any idea of what to expect.  In the back of my head, I knew exactly what was going to happen.  It was going to be the perfect touch to add to their Puerto Rican Wedding.  We were able to go all around Old San Juan, and take ridiculously epic pictures of them that no one else will be able to get.  I’ll save these images for another post.

It’s easy to say this: This was easily one of the most fun weddings we ever photographed.  The Puerto Rican Wedding photographs came out great.  We would do it again in a heartbeat.  Heck, we’d photograph weddings in other places aside from Puerto Rico.  Just let us know where.
