South Pointe Park Surprise Proposal and Engagement Photography

Bare with me while I am still catching up from blogging sessions that took place nearly half a year ago. It’s been a busy year.

I can still remember this day distinctly. I was anxiously waiting for them on a bench behind Smith & Wollensky. They walked past me and I began to follow them from a distance. The plan was for them to walk straight down the pathway to the beach, but there was some sort of film crew blocking the path. He ended up proposing at the end of the pathway out of view from the film crew, and I can still remember people behind me watching in awe (gasps of “oh my gawd!”) as he got down on one knee and proposed.

After the proposal, we walked to the water where the wind was blowing up a storm. This happens from time to time, it’s the beach after all, where we are at the mercy of mother nature. We walked to the top of the pier and I had them stand in a direction where the wind blew her hair back. After that we walked off the beach to an area with tall beach grass – the first photo, my favorite from the session, was in that area. The light was soft but not too blue; the sun had yet to set. For the last set of photos, we walked toward an area where there are rocks lining the water. He lifted her up, with the last remnant of light illuminating their smiling faces.

The soon-to-be bride’s best friend called me: she wanted to help arrange a surprise proposal! We talked about doing it at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. The logistics were simple: wait on a bench outside the “Tea House” located behind the museum. Follow the couple into the Tea House and capture their proposal! Everything went according to plan. What was so funny though was that Melanie knew it was coming. Some girls just know ha. But it didn’t make the moment any less special.

Wandering around Vizcaya was incredible, as always. Each spot offers another unique background. To quote from Vizcaya’s website: “Vizcaya’s European-inspired gardens are among the most elaborate in the United States. Reminiscent of gardens created in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Italy and France, the overall landscape design is conceived as a series of rooms.” 

When we finished up the session, Melanie facetimed her best friend (the one who helped plan everything), and she was in tears. She was dying to know how it all turned out! I was finally able to meet her too, albeit via the internet 🙂 Congratulations Melanie and Marcus!! Wishing you a lifetime filled with lots of love, laughter and happiness.
