South Beach Surprise Proposal Photographer

It’s hard not to love photographing proposals. Minus the nerves leading up to the session, it’s one of the joys in life I get to document. Here’s how this one went down:

The plan: South Pointe Park and the beach had opened up during the coronavirus pandemic. The plan was for us to meet at the park, I’d follow them from a distance, and he’d propose by the water.

How it went down: Ben sent me a photo beforehand of the two of them so I knew who to look for, and told me what they’d be wearing. I was looking for a woman wearing a turquoise dress when I checked my email just before the session was about to start and saw a photo that said: change of outfit! So I was no longer looking for a turquoise dress any more but pink shorts and a white top haha.

I then received a phone call from him and he said: change of plans! They were eating some appetizers at Smith & Wollensky and instead of me following them, he would introduce me as a photographer that would take some photos of them before sunset (he’s done this before with her so she didn’t view it suspiciously). I met the two of them without any handshakes (times have changed quickly during this pandemic!) and we walked down the pathway to the beach.

Once we got to the water, they posed for the camera and then… he turned to her, took her hands in his, and got down on one knee. To say she was surprised is an understatement. She was completely taken back, joyous, happy… all the feels. I loved capturing her many facial reactions! These two are just ridiculously adorable and so in love. Feel lucky to have been there to witness and document this time in their lives.

Large Family Photography Beach Session at Sunrise in Miami, Florida

So grateful I was able to photograph this Cuban-American family. The great-grandparents are just the sweetest couple, and every one in this extended family just radiated kindness and warmth. We met at South Pointe Park for a sunrise session. We took a variety of photos: the entire family together, each individual family, all the cousins together.. and my very favorite set of images, one of the grandson’s dancing with his grandmother. It was one of those rare moments where an entire family gets together, so getting to photograph them together was a special event.

Check out all of the extended family photo sessions on the blog and all of the family photo shoots. You can also take a look at all of the photo sessions at South Pointe Park and sunrise beach sessions. Contact me here to book a family or couple photo session in Miami. You can also email me at info@tovaphotography.com. Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see some of my latest work.

A big thank you to Manuel for the review he left me on Google after the session:

Exceeded my expectations! Absolutely gorgeous photos, great at communication and I could not be more happy with the results. I found Tova from a google search and I would highly recommend to anyone!

If you need ideas on what to wear to a family photo shoot, this Pinterest board has ideas for what to wear. White photographs really well on the beach, as you can see from this photo session. All white, white + khaki, white + jeans (except in the warm months), are easy to coordinate colors with a large, extended family and it looks good on the beach and by the greenery. You can also change it up by everyone wearing different colors (a mix of whites, blues, pinks, etc.). I think it’s best for everyone to feel comfortable in what they’re wearing, so wearing different colored outfits is fine, too!

4 Month Old Family Photo Session

I met this really sweet family from Switzerland on the beach at South Pointe Park. We scheduled an afternoon sunset session and in spite of it being somewhat cloudy, the sun peeked out from behind the clouds for most of the shoot. Their adorable 4 month old baby was in a great mood. They are amazing parents and completely in love with their little one, showering him with lots of affection, hugs and kisses. Loved the little bit of time I got to spend with them.

You can check out all of the baby and newborn photo sessions on the blog. This 4 Month Old Family Photo Session took place at South Pointe Park which is a great beach spot and has other beautiful areas as well (1-2 hour sessions allow plenty of time to explore the entire park). You can take a look at all of the photo shoots from South Pointe Park.

I created a Pinterest Board on What to wear to a photo shoot so you can get some ideas. The most important thing however is to feel comfortable and good in what you’re wearing. Contact me here to inquire about booking a photo shoot or email me directly at info@tovaphotography.com.
