Miami Sunrise Engagement Proposal

I smile thinking back to this surprise engagement proposal session. The plan was perfect: he told her we were going to meet up for a photo shoot. She loves taking pictures, so she wasn’t suspecting at all. She also told me later that he’s always surprising her and planning things so this wasn’t out of the ordinary for him.

We were to meet at sunrise on the beach near the South Pointe Pier in Miami Beach. He told me we should start off just taking pictures of the two of them in different poses, then at some point I would set up a pose where she would face the water. After about 15 minutes or so of taking pictures, she nonchalantly was facing the water and fixing her hair. He got down on one knee and she was still facing the water! I don’t know what he said, but she turned around and had the best expression on her face! Completely shocked, surprised, and overcome with emotion, she said yes.

Her surprise instantly transformed into excitement and giddiness. She couldn’t believe it!  We took more photos afterward and of course, a close-up of the ring as well. I am so happy for these two and wish them a lifetime of happiness and love!

I’ve photographed quite a few surprise proposals and they’re one of my favorite types of sessions! It’s a moment you’ll always treasure and her reaction will be priceless! I use natural light so I photograph outdoor engagement proposals. I often meet people either at sunrise or before sunset at the beach when the light is beautiful (not too harsh so you end up squinting).

Some people have chosen to have dinner or drinks beforehand (for example, at Smith & Wollensky which is in South Pointe Park) and then I follow them afterward to a spot we’ve decided on prior to the shoot, such as the beach. You can either not tell her anything and I will follow from a distance and capture the proposal, or you can tell her that you set up a photo session with a photographer in Miami. Do what works best for you! Fill out the contact form or email me at info@tovaphotography.com to set up a session.

I had such an incredible time with these two! Not only are they super kind, good-hearted people, they are so loving and sweet together. We couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon. The beach was empty (weekday afternoon!), the sky showed off with its magnificent cloudscapes, and the shallow water created beautiful reflections. We started off taking pictures by the water then walked to the South Pointe Pier. I’ve never photographed on the actual pier before. It turned out to  be a good spot because of its view overlooking the ocean and rocks from a higher angle.

This session took place at South Pointe Park, once of my favorite spots in Miami Beach. See all the photo sessions at South Pointe Park (quite a lot!) on the blog. Looking to find the best Miami Photography locations? I’ve got you covered there as well.

I love photographing couples. Whether it’s for an engagement session, you’re on your honeymoon, just got married, you’re celebrating an anniversary, or simply because it’s been ages that the two of you have been photographed together. Or just because you’re totally smitten and in-love and want photos documenting this time in your life. Let’s not leave out one of the most exciting categories – the pre-engagement, surprise proposal sessions!

Key Biscayne Engagement Photography: Why to Choose Crandon Park!

It’s hard to describe just how beautiful Crandon Park is in Key Biscayne. I was thrilled when they chose this spot for their engagement session! It was windy, but we worked around it and were able to get gorgeous photos before sunset. They were such kind and easy people to work with. Loved how comfortable they were with each other and the resulting pictures we captured.

Crandon Park in Key Biscayne feels more like untouched wilderness than the beaches in Miami Beach. As you walk to the beach you will probably see peacocks, geese and iguanas roaming free. They really leave you alone if you don’t bother them. The beaches are also generally quieter although on weekends it can be more packed with people.

It has a plentiful amount of coconut trees with green, yellow and orange hued leaves. It truly looks like a tropical paradise. I highly recommend taking a look at Crandon Park for your Key Biscayne engagement photography session! It’s a beautiful and tranquil Miami spot.

Choose Crandon Park for your Key Biscayne Engagement photography session if:

  1. You love beaches
  2. Coconut Palm trees and sand dunes sounds like your kind of tropical paradise
  3. You don’t mind the sun, wind, sand, or an iguana visitor 🙂

If you are in the Miami Beach / South Beach area, you may want to consider the beach by South Pointe Park. It doesn’t have palm trees on the beach, but it is still a beautiful spot at sunrise or before sunset!
