Z Ocean Hotel South Beach Rooftop Proposal

The Plan: Ryan wanted to propose to his girlfriend on the rooftop of the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. His idea was to for me to start out photographing the entire family, take some individual photos of his 1 year old daughter, and then some of just him and his girlfriend. I would then take some solo shots of his girlfriend. For one photo, I would tell her to look out over the balcony which would be his cue to get into place on one knee behind her. I would then tell her to turn around and he’d pop the question.

How it went down: The rooms at the Z Ocean Hotel have their own rooftop space. So I met them in their suite and we walked out directly to the rooftop. I photographed them and their very adorable little girl. They put her in a crib with a toy and she watched as I photographed her parents together. I told Sam to face the water and Ryan got down on one knee behind her, with his hands holding the open ring box in front of him. When I told her to turn around, she saw Ryan and was in complete shock. She covered her mouth with her hands, getting emotional as Ryan asked her to marry him. She said yes!! He put the ring on her, they embraced and we took a few more photos as the sun was setting.

Sam said she usually knows exactly what Ryan is up to, but she literally had no idea! He built up this idea of getting family photos taken, so she really had no idea he was actually planning a surprise proposal. He left me this review after the session:

“Tova did an amazing job helping me surprise my fiancée with a proposal photo shoot, she was also great with my 1 year old daughter & was able to keep her smiling for pictures which is no easy task.”

St Regis Bal Harbour Family Photographer Sunrise Beach Session

This family was visiting Miami all the way from snowy, cold Chicago. Fall in Miami isn’t that much different than summer, except less hot 🙂 We met up at the beach by the St Regis Bal Harbour Resort. it was quite early but a good time since their baby is super happy in the mornings. The sunrise was beautiful and illuminated them with a warm, golden light. Their little boy is so lucky to have incredible parents who adore him!

Royal Palm South Beach Hotel Family Sunrise Beach Session

I photographed this family at the beach behind the Royal Palm South Beach Hotel. We met up for an early sunrise session. Her grandparents came along too so we were able to get some really sweet photos of the grandparents with their grandchild. She already has a favorite: her grandpa. She leaped into his arms and had a huge smile as he took her into the water.
