Jaynice & Daniel’s Colorful and Exciting Destination Wedding Photography

Hola everyone! Today I'm sharing one of my most fun and also one of my biggest weddings I've ever shot at the always dreamy Hacienda Siesta Alegre. I wasn't able to meet Jaynice and Daniel before their wedding, so I always get a little anxious about breaking the ice right there and then. However, as you'll see in the following photo set, they were an awesome couple -and guests- to work with.

Wedding Getting Ready at Villa Loma Sol

It was my first time at Villa Loma Sol. I was supposed to have Lindsay and Phillip's wedding there, but they eventually moved the venues, so I kept longing for an opportunity there, and it finally happened! Daniel and his cool groomsfolk group got ready at Villa Loma sol, where we did a lot of fun shots all around the place.

Guys don't usually enjoy the portrait set, so I keep it pretty basic, but these were all about it. I think the villa had a particular aesthetic that also made them feel they were part of a tv show. So after this fun portrait session, I drove a few minutes to Hacienda Siesta Alegre to meet Jaynice.

Destination Wedding Photos at Hacienda Siesta Alegre

Similar to Daniel's, the mood at the bridal room was happy and electric. However, we might've underestimated the time it took for Jaynice to finish her hair and make-up. That was not a problem, everyone in the room put all hands on deck, and we were able to finish with enough time to even do some fantastic bridal shots before I had to run upstairs to the ceremony area.

The ceremony was full of deeply inspiring vows, lots of laughter, and passion. It was clear that not only they loved each other and are a perfect match, they also hold great admiration and respect for each other. And, I also gathered throughout the wedding day, so does everyone else around them.

Jaynice and Daniel were officially over and we had so much fun during the group portrait session. Eventually, everyone joined in for a big photo before I stole the newlyweds away for their portraits. Their portraits were effortlessly beautiful, and they're one of those couples I wished I had more time to photograph! But we heard from afar the MC calling us to the reception so it was definitely time to party! And for this part, I think the photos speak for themselves.

Thanks, J&D for your trust and happy disposition when allowing me to capture such a special day in your lives. I hope the rest of your life together is as exciting as your first day as a married couple. Cheers!



Jaynice's Review

Phenomenal photography

Camille was perfect as our photographer. She took absolutely beautiful pictures, was fun to work with, was flexible and understanding with us, and brought really good energy to the wedding. When we took our "cousins picture" (with 30+ people in it), she hopped up on a bench to get a wide enough angle and she brought that picture to life. She captured so many beautiful moments and was in stealth mode as she moved around the wedding (for a lot of these pictures, I didn't even know she was there!). She also got us our pics within 4 days. Thank you so much for capturing these moments so beautifully, Camille! For anyone looking for a photographer in PR, make Camille your first choice. She was extremely responsive and the quality of work is unparalleled. She's absolutely worth it. We can't wait to look at these pictures years down the line with our children because they really do tell the story.
