I so loved photographing these two and their family on their wedding day! We met at Bill Baggs State Park, which is at the very end of Key Biscayne. It’s located close to the historic Cape Florida Lighthouse. Lisette mentioned to me that they were hoping to get a beautiful sunset for their ceremony.
I anxiously looked at the weather, which had been cloudy all day. I know from the past that the weather can change in a short time, so it’s best not to worry about it (still hard to do). As I drove from Miami Beach to Key Biscayne, the weather began to change. The clouds opened up to a beautiful blue sky, and the sun cast its bright light over the island.
it was a very small, intimate ceremony. They chose to wear jersey tops and casual bottoms – my kind of people! They are so down to earth, warmhearted and loving people. Since I arrived a bit early, I had the chance to photograph the girls – I adore the photos of them hugging! They are incredibly sweet and charming kids.
Once the wedding officiant arrived and the papers were signed, the ceremony began. It was a beautiful and emotional moment. We took advantage of the warm light from the setting sun, photographing the four of them just before the island would be engulfed in the blue cast of twilight.
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!
