Justin and Whitney’s Surprise Proposal in South Beach, Florida

Justin and Whitney met in college but didn’t end up dating until much later. They came into town with a bunch of their friends and unbeknownst to Whitney, her sister flew into town to surprise her. Justin looked into different locations for the proposal but ultimately decided on proposing on the rocky pier by South Pointe Park. It was a beautiful December afternoon and I arrived at the park early. I met up with her sister who had already scoped out the area. She would be on the South Pointe Pier watching things unfold.

Justin and Whitney arrived at South Pointe with their friends who were part of the distraction so she would be completely unsuspecting. They took selfies as I slowly followed from a distance. Eventually some of the friends wandered off and Justin and Whitney continued walking themselves toward the beach. They made their way on to the raised rock-lined pier (not to be confused with the paved pier to the right of it where her sister was). They looked out onto the water with their hands clasped.

Whitney continued to look out toward the horizon as Justin got down on one knee just behind her. She turned toward him as a smile washed over her face. He put the ring on her finger and she laughed, her eyes filled with joyful tears.

When they walked down to the beach, their friends were waiting to congratulate them. After a quick photo with the entire group, we spend the remainder of the time photographing just the two of them in the sun’s final glow.

Justin also left me this very kind review on Google:

THE BEST!!!
Tova was so kind and easy to work with for our surprise proposal photography. Sunset proposal photos of the moment and the photoshoot afterwards turned out with amazing (focus, lighting, editing). I was indecisive about location (for privacy) and time of day (for lighting) and she was extremely understanding.
You can definitely trust her with your once in a lifetime moment.

Wishing them both a lifetime of love and happiness together!!

The plan: He wanted to propose at the Cape Florida Lighthouse in the early morning. The lighthouse is located at the southern end of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. While the lighthouse itself usually opens at 9am, the state park opens at 8am so getting to the lighthouse earlier isn’t a problem. We arranged to meet at 8:30am. Cell phone reception in the park can be a little sketchy depending on the area, so everything had to be perfectly planned. I sent him a map showing him exactly where to get dropped off at and which path to take to get to the beach.

How it went down: I arrived early and found a good spot where I could capture the proposal safely from a distance and also get the lighthouse in the background. I saw them walking onto the beach and knew immediately it was them (he sent me a photo of the two of them beforehand and told me what they would be wearing). I followed them as they walked toward the lighthouse, and then captured the proposal and her excitement afterwards.

We spent the remainder of the beautiful morning exploring the area around the lighthouse. The light was spectacular but more importantly the two of them were so sweet and adorable together. I love the way they would look at each other, completely enamored, and the way he easily made her break out in laughter.

The plan: Scott contacted me about wanting to set up a surprise proposal at South Pointe Park followed by dinner at Smith & Wollensky. I sent him photos showing where we would meet, and he sent me pictures of the two of them as well as the outfits they would be wearing that day so I could easily recognize them.

How it went down: I spotted them easily and followed them as they walked onto the beach, arms around each other. When he went down on one knee, she was so surprised! I loved capturing her expressions. We took photos on the beach, the rocky pier, and then went to the greenery and the west end of the park to take more pictures. I found out that they met in high school. They were both on the swim team, had crushes on each other, and have been together ever since!

If you want to schedule a surprise proposal photo session, one suggestion would be to get a Ring Stash so you won’t have large ring box bulging in your pocket! Someone used it on a past shoot and I thought it was a great idea to pass along 🙂
