Cape Florida Lighthouse Surprise Proposal Photographer

The plan: He wanted to propose at the Cape Florida Lighthouse in the early morning. The lighthouse is located at the southern end of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. While the lighthouse itself usually opens at 9am, the state park opens at 8am so getting to the lighthouse earlier isn’t a problem. We arranged to meet at 8:30am. Cell phone reception in the park can be a little sketchy depending on the area, so everything had to be perfectly planned. I sent him a map showing him exactly where to get dropped off at and which path to take to get to the beach.

How it went down: I arrived early and found a good spot where I could capture the proposal safely from a distance and also get the lighthouse in the background. I saw them walking onto the beach and knew immediately it was them (he sent me a photo of the two of them beforehand and told me what they would be wearing). I followed them as they walked toward the lighthouse, and then captured the proposal and her excitement afterwards.

We spent the remainder of the beautiful morning exploring the area around the lighthouse. The light was spectacular but more importantly the two of them were so sweet and adorable together. I love the way they would look at each other, completely enamored, and the way he easily made her break out in laughter.

Family of Three Sunrise Beach Session at the Fontainebleau

Family of Three Sunrise Beach Session at the Fontainebleau

We really lucked out with this photo shoot. It was an early morning session, just after sunrise. I met this family originally from Brazil at the beach behind the Fontainebleau hotel. It was overcast and the weather didn’t look very promising. We went ahead with the session and I’m so glad we did. Their baby was in a great mood. Initially she was a little serious, giving me a quizzical “who are you?” look. But then after her parents started playing with her she warmed up quickly. One of my favorite images from this session is the very last photo – where the mom had no qualms getting into the sand; I love her look of joy and excitement as she holds up her daughter. You can see from the photos just how enamored the two of them of are with their little girl. Immediately after we ended the session the rain was over us. We laughed incredulously, amazed at our luck.

Nautilus South Beach Engagement Photo Session at Sunrise

Nautilus South Beach Engagement Photo Session at Sunrise

Oh, these two. Jade contacted me about wanting to set up an engagement photo session over Labor day weekend. I was glad she chose a sunrise session because it was a weekend and especially on a holiday, it can be extremely packed with people. They told me they weren’t very photogenic (I hear this so many times!) but I can say they proved me wrong 🙂 Really, though, if you just show your love for your partner (or your kids) during the session – these make for the very best pictures.

Jade & Nick were just so sweet together and very much in love. I loved the little bit of time I got to spend with them.

For this Nautilus South Beach Engagement Photo Session at Sunrise session, we met at the beach behind the Nautilus South Beach Sixty Hotel. I would really only recommend photographing on the beach in this area for sunrise because otherwise it can be hard to not get other people in the photographs. The light can be truly beautiful at either sunrise or sunset.

I recommend bringing along a towel and change of clothes in case you put your feet in the water. For hour long sessions, there is enough time if you’d like to change your outfit for a different look.
