I love photographing proposals and this one was no different!

The plan: I would wait on pathway behind their hotel where they were staying at the Monte Carlo Miami Beach. I would then follow them from a distance as they walked on to the beach and capture the proposal.

How it went down: It was a rainy day so I was a little concerned since I can’t photograph when it’s raining out. We decided to touch base when it got closer to the pre-arranged time. It finally stopped raining so we decided to go for it! She was completely surprised and I love her facial expressions! It worked to our benefit that it was an overcast day since we had the beach all to ourselves. So happy for them and really glad it all worked out in the end!

The Plan: Evan originally planned on proposing to Alex on the dock before getting onto the boat. I had scoped the area in advance and had been in touch with Evan as to exactly which boat it was so I knew where to stand. After proposing, they would go on a 3 or 4 hour boat ride around Miami.

How It Went Down: I arrived at the marina in Brickell next to the Four Ambassadors a little early and after speaking with the boat captain, he suggested that Evan propose on the boat itself instead of the dock. It was a Catamaran and there was a small flat area where he would be able to get on one knee. He got in touch with Evan who agreed to the new plan. I was going to pretend to be the captain’s first mate so she wouldn’t be suspicious.

I took off my shoes and socks, rolled up my jeans and discreetly placed my camera bag on the side. Alex and Evan arrived, and just as we planned, the captain introduced himself and then introduced me as his first mate. Evan had the captain hook his phone up through bluetooth so he could begin playing one of their favorite songs, Frankie Valli’s Can’t take my eyes off of you, from one of her favorite movies, 10 Things I Hate About You (see the Youtube clip of Heath Ledger singing the song to Julia Stiles). Evan got down on one knee to Alex’s complete shock – she had no idea. She said yes, and he placed the ring on her finger.

We took off on the boat for 20 minutes or so to get some photos out on the water, and then came back to shore to drop me off so they could continue on their boat ride. It was an amazing moment to capture and I’m so grateful I was able to witness and document their special day!

The plan: He wanted to propose on the pier by the beach behind the Ritz Carlton in Bal Harbour. Just before sunset, they would walk out of the hotel and head to the beach. I would be waiting for them by the water shore to capture the proposal from a distance.

How it went down: I arrived at the hotel early and waited for them both by the water. It was December 31st and the police started closing a small section of the beach around the pier. Turns out they were setting up for fireworks so the pier would be closed to the public! I texted him and suggested they walk along the water next to the pier instead. He had told me what the were wearing so I spotted them making their way to the water and started following them from a distance. I loved her reaction just as she realized that he was about to propose.

These two are both in the medical field and are so adorable and in love with each other. One of my favorite things is photographing people in love, and and to be able to capture surprise proposals is a real joy for me.

So grateful for his review of the experience after the session:

I am not one to usually take the time for reviews, but in this case Tova was outstanding. I had an original plan to propose, but that was thwarted when the dock I was planning on asking was blocked by police for an event. No problem, though, as Tova arrived early, warned me of the circumstances and helped adjust the plan on the fly. The proposal was incredibly stressful by itself, but Tova’s professionalism was exceptional. Also, the pictures were amazing. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone that is looking for a skilled and professional photographer.
