Cynthia+Derek=Breathtaking | Old San Juan YOU+ME Session

Puerto Rico Destination Wedding Photographer

Yes, it's true! Love & marriage is one big leap of faith!

On our YOU+ME session, Cynthia & Derek jumped, climbed, spun & ran all over beautiful Old San Juan. Just a few of our favorites from their super-fun day-after session.

I really like this set of moments... serene,

and silly :)

Late afternoon sprinkle, and then, a little rainbow peeked out for all of about two minutes - good thing Chris had his polarizer with him!

My fav.

Rich colors after the rainfall.

Dramatic backdrops work really well with super-couples willing to rock-climb in their wedding gear!

I'm thinking a really, really big canvas....

Congrats, C+D!

Cynthia+Derek=Breathtaking | Destination Wedding Photographers

Puerto Rico Destination Wedding Photographers

Cynthia+Derek! They're like a super-couple - always impeccably dressed, never flustered, know the whereabouts of every Iron Chef in the world at any given moment, and hike Machu Picchu in their spare time when they're not creating alternative energy sources for impoverished communities. Yes, they work hard, play hard, and love hard.

We've been fortunate to know them for over three years now even since Cynthia's bridesmaid Louise got married to Ben.  And we'd already done two fun YOU+ME shoots with them - so we were super-psyched join them & all their friends in Old San Juan for their Puerto Rico destination wedding. They had a great group of wedding professionals who helped make it an amazing day including Puerto Rico event planner  Myrna Serrano,  florals by Festivo , cake by Lourdes Padilla,  and imported from Vancouver, our favourite Vancouver makeup artist Nadia Albano and my sister  Vancouver wedding videographer Laura Ann Cinema (check out her highlight reel from Derek+Cynthia's day!).

Here are a few (okay, lots!) of our favs from their day.

Fav getting-ready photo ever, I think... Love the excitement of Louise, Letitia, Robin, Cheryl & Tiffany!

Timeless portrait.

Derek & his boys get ready in their own way.

El Convento.


A champagne toast and a self-described "inappropriate" speech by Mark.

Photo shoot pit stop - celebratory drinks in an Old San Juan bar.

So inspiring to shoot in a new city- loved the locations in and around Old San Juan.

These guys know how to work it!

And how to have fun :)

Simple and intimate reception.

And some final night shots of the wedding party.

See?! Told you - too many favs! Which one is your favourite?  Congrats Cynthia &Derek! Your breathtaking Puerto Rico YOU+ME session coming up next on the blog.
