Miami Proposal Photographer

The original plan was to meet at South Pointe Park for a photo session. When I left my house it was still sunny outside. The weather was perfect – blue skies with some clouds, no rain in sight. As soon as I got close to the park, it started pouring (typical Miami weather, especially in the summer). The skies were gray and the weather radar showed that it would not be clearing up any time soon. Sometimes after a downpour the sun comes out and you get the most beautiful light before the sun sets. But this evening was a total washout.

We made plans to re-schedule for the following morning at sunrise. Sure, we’d have to wake up at 6am but it was totally worth it! We met again but this time at Allison Park by 64th Street and Collins Avenue (I wouldn’t recommend it at sunset – it’s normally packed, especially on weekends, but at sunrise it was nearly empty). This time, thankfully, the rain stayed away and the sun was out in all its glory.

I started photographing the two of them and after about 10-15 minutes I asked her to face the water. If you’ve read the blog, I’ve done this quite a few times for surprise proposals and so far it’s worked out pretty well! The women think I’m just setting them up for another pose, meanwhile the guy goes down on one knee while she’s completely oblivious! I usually then ask her to turn around and that’s when their expression changes to surprise… She broke out in a smile, put her hands over her face in shock, and said YES!  We continued taking photos afterward and I love the shots we got! So happy for these two 🙂

See all of the surprise proposal sessions on the blog. In a past blog post I briefly mention the  options for capturing a proposal. Contact me to set up a photo session, I’ll help you plan it and answer any questions you might have!

Miami Beach Proposal Photography — she said yes!

“He usually does crazy things”, she said, when I asked if she knew something was up. So no, scheduling a photo session with a photographer in Miami didn’t raise her suspicions. We met up at sunrise at South Pointe Park for a beach photo session. I started off photographing the two of them in various poses, than asked her to face the water. Completely unsuspecting, I asked her to turn around and there he was, on one knee. With the pressure off (it’s always a relief afterward :), we took some more photos in the greenery where the wind was calmer. Loved photographing these two!

Key Biscayne Wedding Ceremony!

I so loved photographing these two and their family on their wedding day! We met at Bill Baggs State Park, which is at the very end of Key Biscayne. It’s located close to the historic Cape Florida Lighthouse. Lisette mentioned to me that they were hoping to get a beautiful sunset for their ceremony.

I anxiously looked at the weather, which had been cloudy all day. I know from the past that the weather can change in a short time, so it’s best not to worry about it (still hard to do). As I drove from Miami Beach to Key Biscayne, the weather began to change. The clouds opened up to a beautiful blue sky, and the sun cast its bright light over the island.

it was a very small, intimate ceremony. They chose to wear jersey tops and casual bottoms – my kind of people! They are so down to earth, warmhearted and loving people. Since I arrived a bit early, I had the chance to photograph the girls – I adore the photos of them hugging! They are incredibly sweet and charming kids.

Once the wedding officiant arrived and the papers were signed, the ceremony began. It was a beautiful and emotional moment. We took advantage of the warm light from the setting sun, photographing the four of them just before the island would be engulfed in the blue cast of twilight.
