Newport Beachside Hotel Engagement Photography

I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable couple from Iowa at the Newport Beachside Hotel and Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. He had just proposed the evening before and she said yes! They wanted to take engagement photos on the beach, so we decided to meet at the beach by their hotel.

When I asked how they met, she told me they’re both from a very small town where they went to the same school, but never liked each other. Fast forward to a few years later and they both ended up in the same bar. Someone said to her: you should talk to one of those guys. She didn’t end up talking to him, but he did text her the next day: Sorry I was an asshole last night. She thought: you weren’t an asshole, we never even spoke! And that was it…. they became a couple from that point on 🙂

I have to admit their life in Iowa made me a bit jealous: living in a beautiful, serene area next to a river with rolling hills, on a farm with 5 goats who are like her dogs, and other animals as well. Sounds pretty perfect to me!

Sunny Isles Beach is a nice spot to stay in the Miami area, but is far from South Beach (about a 45 minute drive depending on traffic). The beaches there are pretty though! Check out some of my top photography locations in Miami, including spots in several different neighborhoods.

This couple from New Jersey just got engaged and wanted to take their engagement photos here in Miami Beach while on vacation. I met them at The Palms Hotel & Spa one early morning for a sunrise session. They are such a sweet couple and I’m so happy for the two of them!

Surprise Proposal Vizcaya Gardens Miami Photographer

Joe wanted to propose to his girlfriend at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. They are both from England and were in town for the Superbowl LIV in Miami. He sent me the signed permit and fees in advance, a requirement to photograph in the gardens at Vizcaya. I sent him a map and directions of where to go when he got there. He also sent me a photo of the two of them and what they’d be wearing that day so I’d know who to look for.

It was a relatively quiet morning at Vizcaya, most likely due to the events occurring in South Beach during the Superbowl. While waiting on a bench outside of the Tea House, I spotted them both from a distance near the water. He walked with Emma into the Tea House and taking advantage of having the place all to themselves, he quickly got down on one knee. He sweetly took her hand and kissed it and asked her to marry him. After placing the ring on her finger and embracing, he pointed in my direction. Love those photos showing their excited and shocked expressions!

We then spent the remainder of the hour walking to some of my favorite spots in Vizcaya. I even discovered a new area that was empty of people and had gorgeous light streaming in. Some areas of Vizcaya can have mosquitoes depending on the time of year, so mosquito repellent is a good thing to have just in case.

I had such a blast working with these two! If you are interested in booking a surprise proposal, engagement or a just-because couples photo shoot, contact me here. You can also send an email to info@tovaphotography.com or tovaphotography@gmail.com.
