Francisco and Bianca are both from New York City, Frances grew up in Manhattan so that was an easy start to our first Skype conversation. We quickly learned that Francisco and Bianca both have a deep love for art and artistic expression. They were interested in wedding photography that would tell their story in a meaningful and artistic way we immediately knew this couple was passionate about their wedding photography and we were excited to work with them. Francisco and Bianca were truly supportive of our creative process all through out the wedding day. We chatted about some ideas for photographs during our Skype call a few weeks before their wedding and this gave us some insight into what they wanted to portray through their pictures.
After Reverend Ruiz led a beautiful ceremony on the beach in Arecibo. The wind had started to pick up as the sun was setting into the water onto the beach in Arecibo where they held their ceremony. Her veil caught the wind and we were able to make some beautiful couples portraits. As a wedding photographer in Puerto Rico we are almost always working outdoors so when nature steps in its better to go with the flow or in this case the wind.
The reception at the Atlantic Sands Oasis in Arecibo, Puerto Rico was filled with family and friends breaking it down on the dance floor. I think one of our favorite moments of the eventing was when the groom Francisco bust out some serious dance moves to “Gangham style”
After several courses of food, emotional first dances, and lots of excitement we slipped away with the couple to play with long exposure photography and sparklers on the beach. **Tip: If you want to do a photograph with sparklers please tell us first. They are difficult to find here on the island due to shipping regulations. They are usually only available around Christmas and New Years (When we try to buy a few boxes ? )
One of the photographs from Bianca and Francisco’s wedding was featured in The Huffington Posts “Real Weddings of the Week!” Check out the feature here
“Our wedding day was absolute perfection and we could not have picked a better team than Rincon Images to capture the moment to cherish forever. They definitely have a passion for photography that you do not come by often. After speaking with other photographers, we felt that Frances and Greg were the only ones that gave us the impression that they actually cared that we got great images. It wasn’t just another job to them and they used their creativity for some of the best wedding/engagement pictures we have ever seen or imagined. They gave incredible direction to make sure we were posed properly and were excited to take even a few silly pictures we wanted. During the wedding, they were not obstructive and captured great shots of all of our guests and family. We still cannot believe that we have pictures that belong in the pages of a magazine! They work so well together and the quality of work they provide is second to none. We are exceptionally impressed by their work and believe that this was the best money spent on the entire day.”
