Rachel and her son's adventure with Celebrate Creative Studio in Old San Juan was nothing short of magical. As we kicked off our first session of the year, Rachel's initial message expressing her desire for a casual photo session with her son set the tone for an exciting experience.

Having fallen in love with Puerto Rico during their previous visit, especially the charm of Old San Juan, Rachel's focus was clear – capturing the essence of their bond between the colorful buildings she personally admires. And so, the journey began in the picturesque "Parque de las Palomas."

Surrounded by the fluttering wings of pigeons, Rachel and her son immersed themselves in a delightful photo session, seizing the opportunity to feed the feathered habitants of the park. The air was filled with laughter and joy, creating the perfect atmosphere for capturing authentic, candid moments frozen in time.

Despite the hustle and bustle brought on by the arrival of four cruise ships, each unloading eager tourists into Old San Juan, Celebrate Creative Studio ensured a seamless experience. Steering clear of the crowds, we navigated through the charming streets of the historic city, finding hidden gems and scenic spots for both posed and spontaneous photographs.

It was a great day to take photos, this is the coolest season of our tropical climate, with 77 degrees Fahrenheit, and a very bright sunny day. We ventured into the streets for a more refreshing route where the buildings gave us the perfect shadows and the occasional breeze brush past us.

Everything is in the details and communication:

From the moment Rachel inquired about Celebrate Creative Studio's services, a seamless planning process unfolded. Staying true to our commitment to making every experience stress-free, we engaged in thorough communication with Rachel, understanding her preferences and desires for the perfect photo session.

Before the session even commenced, we assisted Rachel in choosing the best routes through Old San Juan, tailoring the journey to her unique taste. Our proactive approach involved staying connected, constantly verifying weather conditions, monitoring traffic updates, and ensuring the availability of the chosen locations. We even recommended her to wear comfy shoes for the walk, something that helped her choose her beautiful outfit for the evening. This attention to detail started with a phone call and continued throughout the entire planning process, allowing Rachel to focus on the excitement of the upcoming session.

At Celebrate Creative Studio, we recognize that the success of a photo session extends beyond the captured images. It encompasses the entire experience, from the initial inquiry to the final product. That's why our commitment to communication and organization is unwavering – we want our clients to feel supported and confident every step of the way.

In Old San Juan, our carefully curated list of routes offers diverse settings, each with its own unique charm. The route between El Morro and San Cristobal Fortress, bordered by the ocean on one side and vibrant, folkloric scenery on the other, is a visual feast. The path along El Paseo de la Princesa provides a breathtaking view of the port and Bay Area, creating a picturesque backdrop for unforgettable moments.

For those staying in hotels, we extend our photography expertise to capture stunning images in lobby areas and their surroundings. Adding a touch of historical information enhances the overall experience, making each photograph a narrative woven into the rich tapestry of Puerto Rico's past.
