Hyatt Centric South Beach Couple Photography Session

Working with these two was such a dream. We met up for an early morning sunrise session at the beach near the Hyatt Centric. The sky was dark and moody, the beach nearly deserted. These two easily made each other laugh and their love for each other is evident. It’s probably trite to say I love capturing love… but I really do.

I don’t remember if it was my idea or their’s to go into the water, but the resulting photos are always so fun every time! The water is fairly warm in Miami year round (except for the few cold spells in the winter time), but especially so now in the summer. So if you’re thinking of heading into the ocean at the end of your session, go for it. You only live once 🙂

Need ideas for what to wear to a photo session? I compiled a Pinterest board to give you some ideas. My best suggestion is to feel good and comfortable in what you’re wearing. This means BE YOU – wear clothing that feels authentic to who you are. Also make sure you are comfortable and keep in mind that if we’re photographing at the beach it can be windy.

For 1 hour and 2 hour sessions, you can always bring along a change of outfit for different looks. I recommend one outfit change for a 1 hour session and 2 outfit changes for 2 hour sessions. It’s always nice to change things up, so you can have a more casual outfit and a dressier one.

Sharing just a few favorites from this recent family session. This family came into town from Texas and were so delightful to work with. They woke up bright and early – we met up for a sunrise session at 7am!

Since we are in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic right now, meeting up early was a good choice. Not only was the beach very empty, the light was soft and golden; it gets strong and harsh very quickly as the day progresses (unless it’s one of those overcast days, in which case you don’t have to worry much about squinting and sweating 🙂 )

They were staying at the Shelborne South Beach Hotel, so I met them at the beach next to their hotel. Always nice when you don’t have to travel far for the photo shoot, makes life a little simpler.

Interested in documenting photos of your family? (Kids grow up fast, and move out of the house even quicker… so take them while you can!) Fill out the contact form or send an email to info@tovaphotography.com.

How sweet are these two?? They were staying at the Marseilles Hotel in South Beach. I waited for them on the beach walk behind the hotel. Once I saw them, I followed from afar as they walked out onto a pretty empty beach. She was completely taken by surprise when he got down on one knee and pulled out a beautiful ring. She said YES and they embraced. I love the joy and laughter on their faces after the proposal.
