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.

Josue & Sandra: Miami Proposal Session!!

There’s nothing like a surprise proposal session that gets your adrenaline going. Josue planned an early dinner reservation at Smith & Wollensky and then took a walk with Sandra by the scenic South Pointe walkway leading to the beach. He actually told her that they would be meeting a photographer for a photo shoot on the beach 🙂  (but I didn’t meet her until after the proposal!)

He got down on one knee near the lifeguard stand, where Sandra excitedly said yes!! while I stood off a short distance away capturing it all. We then took engagement style photos afterward – and I couldn’t have enjoyed working with these two more. They were so giddy in love, completely smitten and enraptured with each other.

If there’s anything I could recommend to couples planning an engagement session it would be this: yes, I’ll give you ideas, direction and set you up in photos, but the emotional aspect of the imagery, what makes it captivating is the love and emotion you have for each other. The loving way you look into each others eyes. The way you get lost in his hugs. The way you are able to make her smile and laugh. Those are the moments that I try my best to create, because it is those photos that you will look back at and remember with an overwhelming sense of joy and nostalgia.

Surprise Proposal in Miami Beach!

One of my favorite kinds of sessions are surprise proposals. We planned ahead of time exactly where I would meet them and where they would head towards. Once I spotted them, I followed behind from a distance until they got to the South Pointe pier, where there’s a beautiful view of the ocean. A few minutes later a plane flew past them with a sign that read: Maria, I love you! Will you marry me? He got down on one knee and proposed… she said yes!! We then walked around the park before sunset to take more photos of the two of them together.
