Full Description
Hi! My name is César Portes, I'm a Destination Wedding Photographer based in London,UK & Dominican Republic. For the last decade I’ve been capturing hundreds of beautiful weddings in some of the most extraordinary Caribbean settings. A solid reputation brought me to shoot amazing new sceneries in several North American locations, where I also had the chance to meet and be mentored by two internationally known photographers. In 2019, I moved with my wife and two daughters to London, UK. I basically spent half of the time working in DR and the other half in the UK. Travelling around the world doing beautiful weddings has since then been my life. Along my career, getting the opportunity to shoot weddings in so many different locations have given me an extraordinary gift, which is the capacity of working in any conditions, venues and weather. This has been Key to my work that evolves around the art of lighting. My goal in every image, is to bring out the emotions and complicity of its characters in a magical, artistic and organic way. I do love the dramatic and editorial images, and for those you will be posed and guided, but in way that looks natural and passionate. But I also enjoy the natural and candids ones, where I can bring out and capture the feelings and emotion of the moment. My style is Fine Art, editorial, romantic, modern, versatile. If you are looking for a photographer that can tell your story in an artistic and timeless way, let’s have a chat :)

AMAZING experienced and talented photographer!
AMAZING experienced and talented photographer! We were so excited that Cesaer was available for our wedding date because we did a lot of research on amazing photographers and he came very highly recommended in addition to looking at his amazing portfolio his work is stunning. Throughout the entire process he was very responsive and easy going. On the day of the wedding he was very prompt and on time, didn't mind that we were running a little behind he didn't rush us or stress us out. He took photographers that you can tell the angles and background would be stunning, was fun to work with and he didn't mind getting dirty( our wedding was on the beach). He was the type of photographer that got every good and important shot, but he wasn't in the way of the guests, which i love. It's been one week since our wedding and we got one photograph which is so amazing beautiful we cannot wait to see the rest. I would highly highly recommend him!!!!

Our Dream Wedding Photographer
We knew we found our dream wedding photographer the minute we laid eyes on Cesar Portes’ beautiful work. About a year prior to our wedding, we traveled to Punta Cana just to meet him and secure our wedding venue and date based on his availability. We had our mind set on an October wedding, but because he was unavailable, we chose the day my husband and me met, November 10th, because we were convinced that nobody could capture all the details we had in mind for our wedding the way Cesar could and we were right. We were honored to have Cesar join us throughout our wedding weekend, where he captured timeless treasures of our welcome party and wedding. Every single picture that he took brings us right by the joyful and unforgettable moments we felt and experienced. From the invitations, the décor, the food, entertainment to the priceless expressions of family and friends, candid moments and fairytale photos of the bride and groom, all of Cesar’s photos tell a story. Cesar’s sharp eye, attention to every detail, ability to make you feel relaxed, his professionalism and poise are just some of the many reasons that make him so much more than a photographer. He’s truly an artist. If you’re getting married in Punta Cana or anywhere in the world, you know you’ve made the best decision when you book Cesar Portes. Weddings go by so fast and they are truly a once-in-lifetime experience, but with Cesar as your photographer, you’ll be able to relive every minute and special detail of your big day.

As the father of the bride, I can not say enough..
As the father of the bride, who held a destination wedding, I can not say enough about the qualities and photographic talent this young man possesses. Not only was Cesar willing to travel, but I observed first hand his sensitive interaction with the bride and groom to capture each wedding moment as they had envisioned and could have only dreamed. Viewing the wedding photos has brought such emotion and joy to our family members and attendees. This can only be attributed to Cesar's abilities to record this monumental event. I highly recommend Cesar when seeking one to capture life's most treasured moments.

Cesar was absolutely amazing to work with!
Cesar was absolutely amazing to work with! Cesar came to St Maarten for our destination wedding in October of 2019. We did a day before shoot and he was with us all day on the day of the wedding. Within the first few minutes of meeting Cesar, he made us feel at ease. Our wedding was in the morning and the sunlight, heat and rush in timing made things challenging. Cesar was patient, flexible and managed to get the most amazing photos of us, our family and friends. When working with him, you can tell how passionate he is about his work. He gets so excited about your photos and he manages to capture all of the special moments. He is so talented and has such a wonderful personality. We are so thrilled with our photos and with choosing him to be our photographer. My friends and family could not say enough positive things about him as a person and his work as a photographer. I cannot thank Cesar enough for traveling and capturing our special day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Editorial Timeless Dramatic Romantic Fine Art

What about your business are you most proud of?

Been able to develop my own style.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Invest in a good photographer. When the wedding day is over, photography and video is the only thing you we'll have to remember one of the most important day of your life.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

For me is a photo that they can hang in their living room and looks like a painting. And that every time they look at it, a smile come to their faces.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Have a plan B, stay calm and have an umbrella around, I can be very creative doing rain shots :)
