Vizcaya Museum Surprise Proposal Engagement Photographer

Paul and his girlfriend Samantha are from Australia and were planning their first trip to the United States. On the itinerary was Miami and Southern California. They were going to spend a few days in Miami and also take a cruise. While doing a search for Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Paul found my website and reached out. He wanted to propose to his girlfriend of four years. Vizcaya is not only a beautiful and romantic spot, it also happened to be fairly close to where he was staying in Brickell (the financial district in Miami).

The plan: I sent Paul a map of Vizcaya showing him where the Tea House is so he would know exactly where to go (He wanted to propose in the Tea House, a structure located behind the museum). He sent me a photo of him and Sam so I knew who to look for that day. I told him I’d be waiting on a bench just outside of the Tea House.

How it went down: It was a Friday morning and I arrived a little early to Vizcaya. It was fairly quiet, but people were starting to arrive to tour the museum and gardens. I sat on a bench opposite the Tea House and soon enough I spotted the two of them from a distance. They went into the Tea House at a moment when no one else happened to be in there. They hugged and looked out toward the water. Paul pulled out a slim ring box from his pocket and went down on one knee. Sam’s face lit up with a huge grin. She said yes!! They embraced, Paul relieved, Sam ecstatic.

We spent the remainder of the hour walking around the gardens of Vizcaya. They were so great to work with; easygoing, fun and completely in love.

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 🙂

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’t 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 🙂

This lovely couple came down to Miami and wanted an engagement session on the beach. It was a beautiful day in January when we met up on a weekday at South Pointe Park before sunset. They are so sweet together and I loved capturing the two of them together.
