Rincon Puerto Rico Beach Wedding

A destination wedding at Playa Maria

Puerto Rico Beach Destination Wedding

When I first video chatted with Carrie and Matt about their Rincon, Puerto Rico beach wedding adventure, I knew we were a great match immediately. Carrie explained that they were planning an intimate micro wedding with a small group of family and friends and that they wanted “authentic and genuine” photos that would “tell the story” of their wedding weekend. This was music to my ears.

Rincon is a dreamy beach town on the northwest corner of the Island of Puerto Rico. Mango trees are plentiful, the rum is delicious, and thanks to the deep Puerto Rican Trench, the beaches in this corner of the island are home to some of the best surfing in the Caribbean. The entire wedding group stayed at the Villa on Maria’s Beach, a gorgeous luxury beachfront property and an epic setting for Carrie and Matt’s sunset beach ceremony.

My team and I were lucky to spend a few days photographing with Carrie and Matt, documenting their Puerto Rico island adventures and tropical destination wedding. Here are a few images from their wedding story.

“Thanks Drew! The photo story is gorgeous. We love the detail and energy and diversity of the photos. We spent all morning looking at the online gallery. And we keep finding more and more favorites ; ) You truly captured the spirit of our Rincon Puerto Rico beach wedding weekend.”

“While we are based in San Francisco and Oakland, California our creative team loves traveling for destination weddings. Carrie and Matt’s Rincon Puerto Rico beach wedding was so special. We had the honor of joining Carrie and Matt for a few days documenting their island adventures. The sunset ceremony at the Villa at Maria’s beach was magical and one we’ll never forget."

“Drew managed to capture everything from the sweeping settings of Rincon to the tiniest details. And, I hardly knew he was there. We will treasure the beautiful photos he created for years to come. If you have the chance to work with Drew and his team, we highly recommended.”

“I love telling stories with photographs. Intimate micro and adventure weddings with a smaller number of guests enable my team and I to develop really meaningful relationships with everyone in attendance. Carrie and Matt are such fabulous people. We photographed with their family and friends over the course of a long weekend in the dreamy tropical beach town of Rincon. I just love the way we were immediately welcomed into their inner circle. I’m always grateful for amazing clients like Carrie and Matt who invite us in to tell the visual story of their intimate wedding celebrations.”
