Josue & Sandra: Miami Proposal Session!!

There’s nothing like a surprise proposal session that gets your adrenaline going. Josue planned an early dinner reservation at Smith & Wollensky and then took a walk with Sandra by the scenic South Pointe walkway leading to the beach. He actually told her that they would be meeting a photographer for a photo shoot on the beach 🙂  (but I didn’t meet her until after the proposal!)

He got down on one knee near the lifeguard stand, where Sandra excitedly said yes!! while I stood off a short distance away capturing it all. We then took engagement style photos afterward – and I couldn’t have enjoyed working with these two more. They were so giddy in love, completely smitten and enraptured with each other.

If there’s anything I could recommend to couples planning an engagement session it would be this: yes, I’ll give you ideas, direction and set you up in photos, but the emotional aspect of the imagery, what makes it captivating is the love and emotion you have for each other. The loving way you look into each others eyes. The way you get lost in his hugs. The way you are able to make her smile and laugh. Those are the moments that I try my best to create, because it is those photos that you will look back at and remember with an overwhelming sense of joy and nostalgia.

Surprise Proposal in Miami Beach!

One of my favorite kinds of sessions are surprise proposals. We planned ahead of time exactly where I would meet them and where they would head towards. Once I spotted them, I followed behind from a distance until they got to the South Pointe pier, where there’s a beautiful view of the ocean. A few minutes later a plane flew past them with a sign that read: Maria, I love you! Will you marry me? He got down on one knee and proposed… she said yes!! We then walked around the park before sunset to take more photos of the two of them together.

Afterwards he showed her a video he put together from their family and friends on the iPad — such a sweet idea!



Then we headed to the beach for some engagement photos:
