I love destination weddings!!! Such weddings are often less structured and offer multiple day/venue location portrait options.  This was my first trip to Puerto Rico after having captured distant weddings at Lake Tahoe, Cancun, Cabo and all over the United States.Today I captured Jessica and Ryan’s destination wedding in Puerto Rico.  I was looking forward to capturing their wedding after meeting with them in DC last year for their engagement. This was my fourth destination wedding after my Lake Tahoe wedding in 2015, Cancun wedding in 2016 and Cabo San Lucas wedding in 2017.

The ceremony was held at the second oldest cathedral in Americas. The building dates back to 1521 and you could feel the history all throughout the building. The cathedral is a major tourist attraction and we actually had tourists walking through the back of the church during ceremony. It was a very unique ceremony from the Ryan’s fun loving entrance to the pastor inviting me to walk discretely behind the couple so that I could get the images of the cathedral and the guests.

After the ceremony we looked to take pictures around San Juan. As everyone who’s been to San Juan knows, there are two absolutes in Puerto Rico. First, the traffic is always a problem and the gale force winds are omnipresent. So we were limited in our portrait selection because of the major traffic jan despite allowing 2 hours for pictures between ceremony and reception. We arrived at San Juan National Historic Site and walked to El Morro a distance of 1/4 mile. That is one way and is shown in yellow on the map. The trip was well worth it as we captured some iconic images with the large bridal party and Jessica and Ryan.

On the way back to the hotel we stopped at Old San Juan and captured unique cobblestone images and colorful buildings with Jessica and Ryan.
