South Beach Surprise Proposal Photographer

It’s hard not to love photographing proposals. Minus the nerves leading up to the session, it’s one of the joys in life I get to document. Here’s how this one went down:

The plan: South Pointe Park and the beach had opened up during the coronavirus pandemic. The plan was for us to meet at the park, I’d follow them from a distance, and he’d propose by the water.

How it went down: Ben sent me a photo beforehand of the two of them so I knew who to look for, and told me what they’d be wearing. I was looking for a woman wearing a turquoise dress when I checked my email just before the session was about to start and saw a photo that said: change of outfit! So I was no longer looking for a turquoise dress any more but pink shorts and a white top haha.

I then received a phone call from him and he said: change of plans! They were eating some appetizers at Smith & Wollensky and instead of me following them, he would introduce me as a photographer that would take some photos of them before sunset (he’s done this before with her so she didn’t view it suspiciously). I met the two of them without any handshakes (times have changed quickly during this pandemic!) and we walked down the pathway to the beach.

Once we got to the water, they posed for the camera and then… he turned to her, took her hands in his, and got down on one knee. To say she was surprised is an understatement. She was completely taken back, joyous, happy… all the feels. I loved capturing her many facial reactions! These two are just ridiculously adorable and so in love. Feel lucky to have been there to witness and document this time in their lives.

This was my third post-quarantine job. I was excited to photograph a surprise proposal at the beautiful Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. They are currently only accepting 10 online reservations a day (but this can change any day).

I waited outside the Tea House for the two of them to walk by me. Once inside the Tea House, he got down on one knee. She was obviously excited and happy and eagerly wanted to see the ring. He put it on her finger and then he pointed out that I was there – she hadn’t noticed 🙂

We walked around different areas of the gardens, wanting to utilize Vizcaya’s unique architecture and design. It was hot outside but so worth it! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of photographing at Vizcaya. If there is one benefit to these crazy times during the coronavirus pandemic, the gardens were pretty empty, especially for a weekend.

Vizcaya has temporarily suspended walk-in photo permits, but things are changing so quickly these days so be sure to familiarize yourself with their rules and opening times before going there.

Check out all of the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens photo sessions. Head over to Vizcaya’s website for more information on booking a session there, cost of permits, etc. Take a look at some of the other surprise proposals taken in different areas of Miami.

Family Photography Session at Coral Gables Park

Photographing this family of three was pure JOY. When they arrived at the Coral Gables Entrance Park (also called the Prado entrance), their daughter had just woken up from a nap in the car. She rested her head on her dad’s shoulder, still a little groggy. Soon after her parents started chasing after her and she was all smiles and full of energy. The love between the three of them is palpable and I’m so grateful I was able to document this time in their lives.
