The plan: He wanted to propose on the pier by the beach behind the Ritz Carlton in Bal Harbour. Just before sunset, they would walk out of the hotel and head to the beach. I would be waiting for them by the water shore to capture the proposal from a distance.

How it went down: I arrived at the hotel early and waited for them both by the water. It was December 31st and the police started closing a small section of the beach around the pier. Turns out they were setting up for fireworks so the pier would be closed to the public! I texted him and suggested they walk along the water next to the pier instead. He had told me what the were wearing so I spotted them making their way to the water and started following them from a distance. I loved her reaction just as she realized that he was about to propose.

These two are both in the medical field and are so adorable and in love with each other. One of my favorite things is photographing people in love, and and to be able to capture surprise proposals is a real joy for me.

So grateful for his review of the experience after the session:

I am not one to usually take the time for reviews, but in this case Tova was outstanding. I had an original plan to propose, but that was thwarted when the dock I was planning on asking was blocked by police for an event. No problem, though, as Tova arrived early, warned me of the circumstances and helped adjust the plan on the fly. The proposal was incredibly stressful by itself, but Tova’s professionalism was exceptional. Also, the pictures were amazing. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone that is looking for a skilled and professional photographer.

South Pointe Park Surprise Proposal Photo Shoot

The plan: Scott contacted me about wanting to set up a surprise proposal at South Pointe Park followed by dinner at Smith & Wollensky. I sent him photos showing where we would meet, and he sent me pictures of the two of them as well as the outfits they would be wearing that day so I could easily recognize them.

How it went down: I spotted them easily and followed them as they walked onto the beach, arms around each other. When he went down on one knee, she was so surprised! I loved capturing her expressions. We took photos on the beach, the rocky pier, and then went to the greenery and the west end of the park to take more pictures. I found out that they met in high school. They were both on the swim team, had crushes on each other, and have been together ever since!

If you want to schedule a surprise proposal photo session, one suggestion would be to get a Ring Stash so you won’t have 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 🙂

South Pointe Park Surprise Proposal and Engagement Photography

Bare with me while I am still catching up from blogging sessions that took place nearly half a year ago. It’s been a busy year.

I can still remember this day distinctly. I was anxiously waiting for them on a bench behind Smith & Wollensky. They walked past me and I began to follow them from a distance. The plan was for them to walk straight down the pathway to the beach, but there was some sort of film crew blocking the path. He ended up proposing at the end of the pathway out of view from the film crew, and I can still remember people behind me watching in awe (gasps of “oh my gawd!”) as he got down on one knee and proposed.

After the proposal, we walked to the water where the wind was blowing up a storm. This happens from time to time, it’s the beach after all, where we are at the mercy of mother nature. We walked to the top of the pier and I had them stand in a direction where the wind blew her hair back. After that we walked off the beach to an area with tall beach grass – the first photo, my favorite from the session, was in that area. The light was soft but not too blue; the sun had yet to set. For the last set of photos, we walked toward an area where there are rocks lining the water. He lifted her up, with the last remnant of light illuminating their smiling faces.
