Miami Sunrise Boat Proposal and Engagement Photographer

The plan: He hired a boat along with a wonderful boat captain for a 2 hour boat ride at the Prime Marina Miami. It was for a sunrise session in February so the weather was pleasantly warm. While she knew he was going to propose, she didn’t know how, but she did know a photographer would be there ūüôā

How it went down: We met up early one morning and the boat captain was super nice saying he could turn the boat in any direction so we could get great lighting. We photographed nearly the entire time, enjoying the beautiful views in all directions. It’s an incredible thing seeing Miami from a different perspective. About 15 minutes into the ride once we were out on the water, he signaled to me that he was about to propose. I then set them up in a pose where the lighting was good. He went down on one knee and in an emotional moment, she said yes. After photographing a bit more in their formal outfits, they changed into something more casual and comfortable. I loved the remaining moments captured of the two of them together, reveling in each other’s love.

if you’re thinking of booking a¬†surprise proposal photo session, one suggestion would be to get a¬†Ring Stash¬†so you won‚Äôt have a 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 ūüôā

These two have a sweet back story.¬†Growing up, they lived on the same block and he would walk her to the school bus each morning.¬†They had a crush on each other in elementary and middle school, but it wasn’t until college that they got together.

He decided to surprise her with a photo shoot on her birthday, so she had no idea when they got to South Pointe that she was going to have pictures taken! Soon after flying into to the Fort Lauderdale airport, they went to their hotel in South Beach and then made their way to the park. I loved photographing both of them, they are so adorable and sweet together!

This Surprise Couple Birthday Photo Shoot on the Beach took place at South Pointe Park before sunset. Check out all of the photo sessions at South Pointe Park.

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‚Äôs 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 ūüôā Congratulations Melanie and Marcus!! Wishing you a lifetime filled with lots of love, laughter and happiness.
