Where to start with these two? They wanted photos of their ceremony as well as pictures of the two of them together afterward at Lummus Park. We met up one morning in April at the Miami Beach District Court. I arrived early as I usually do to look around and find areas where the nice is light. The courthouse is small but filled with beautiful intricate details and ample natural light. There are actually two entrances and these two doorways let soft sunlight in, particularly in the morning.

Once they arrived we headed up the elevator to the second floor. After a short wait and some quick signatures, we went into a small, elongated room decorated simply. The ceremony was quick but emotional – do you take him to be your lawfully wedded husband? I do. Do you take her to be you lawfully wedded wife? I do. Some tears were shed, some hugs and kisses, and now they were married.

They were giddy and adorable and just so much fun to photograph. They decided to photograph indoors instead of being outside where it was warm and very sunny. I think you can see from the photos that they were just being their complete, honest selves during the session: relaxed, happy, in love and having a blast together.

The plan: Steve reached out to me about planning a surprise proposal. His plan was to propose on the beach near the Hotel Riu Plaza Miami Beach. They love taking walks on the beach together, so he figured she wouldn’t need much convincing to go for a walk together and then he’d propose.

How it went down: Steve sent me a photo in advance of the him and Emily so I knew who to look for. He also mentioned what he was wearing so I definitely couldn’t miss them. I waited on the boardwalk just outside the Riu. They were relaxing on the beach and I could see them from a distance. Once I saw them getting up to go walking, I headed out onto the sand and followed them from a distance. I loved her reaction, especially when Steve pointed me out and her mouth opened up in shock. Priceless!

Tyler was coming into town from Nova Scotia, Canada and wanted to propose to his girlfriend in Miami.

The plan: Since he wanted a location that had both the beach, palm trees and a cityscape, we decided on South Pointe Park. For the actual proposal he wanted to capture both the ocean and the hotels alongside it. I told him which way to walk when he got there so we could capture that view.

How it went down: I followed them from a distance as they made their way to the beach. He knew exactly which way to go and walked to an area that was relatively empty of people. I loved her reaction!! She was obviously super excited and her face showed it! We spent the rest of the hour walking around South Pointe Park which has no shortage of beautiful landscapes. We ended the session at the top of the hill which as a great view of palm trees in the background and and the ocean.

See all of the surprise proposals in Miami on the blog and on Pinterest. You can also take a look at other photo sessions at South Pointe Park. This session took place in the afternoon before sunset. The best time for a beach session is generally around sunrise and 1-2 hours before sunset. Contact me here to book a photo session or send an email to info@tovaphotography.com.
