Paula : portrait // Old San Juan, Puerto Rico



Oh Puerto Rico. Just saying the name encourages a little flair of an accent. I’m no jet-setting expert on island vacations, but thanks to my work I do find myself in beautiful places, and some more often than others. From the different times I’ve been to Puerto Rico I’d have to say it’s one of my top favorite destinations, and the tourism bureau should really send me a fruit basket already for the work I do convincing everyone to visit.

The architecture of the buildings in Old San Juan is a dream and each turn is a different spectrum of color and design with a jungle of trees and these blue cobblestone streets that I’d like to pave my life with. You also get all the history with the Spanish forts, and then of course the rainforest and picturesque beaches on remote islands and even surreal adventures like paddling in the rain through a bioluminscent bay in the middle of the night.

For my last wedding there my second shooter / friend / recently-booked-wedding-client (!!) Paula came too, and we took an afternoon to walk through the city. In between all the coffee and comfort food we passed a camera back and forth, and here are a few favorites.
