Miami Beach Surprise Proposal Photographer
The plan: He told her they would have a photo shoot for their anniversary while on their trip to Miami. I would meet them at South Pointe Park, and start photographing them on the beach.
The day of the shoot: After taking some pictures and giving them direction on poses, for one pose I told her how to stand facing the water. She thought I was just setting them up for another photo, but that was his cue to kneel on one knee directly behind her. Now turn around to face him, I mentioned as I steadied the camera up to my eye. Her mouth dropped open in shock, then she wiped away the tears as the emotion of the moment hit her. He put the ring on her finger, they hugged and she began to laugh. We photographed a bit more on the beach, got a close up of their hands holding – except now there was a ring gracing her finger. For the last photo they stood on the rocks along the waters edge, his arms around her waist, her hand around his neck, kissing.
Their feedback after the session: They were so kind to leave me this super sweet review after the session. One of the best parts of working with people is knowing they had a great experience and love their photos.
I truly couldn’t say enough wonderful things about Tova and her amazing talent! She helped my fiance plan a surprise engagement at South Point Park and the pictures turned out beautifully. From the moment we met her to take our “anniversary” pictures, she was so easy to talk to and had a ton of great ideas for us to choose from since it was our first time visiting Miami Beach. The pictures are absolutely to die for and I am so thankful that my fiance found Tova to capture this amazing moment in our lives! If you are looking for the perfect photographer to capture precious moments with you and your loved ones, look no further. Tova will do the job perfectly!

Miami Maternity Photographer Sunrise Beach Session
Loved working with these two! We headed to the beach at sunrise to capture their maternity session. So happy and excited for them as they are expecting their first child 🙂 I know it is not easy for most people to wake up early (I am definitely not a morning person lol), but trust me when I say it is worth it, especially if you are going to book a session on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday. On a regular weekday the beach has some people but the weekends especially are crowded. We make it work, but if you are someone who prefers not to have lots of people around, book a sunrise session! It is so calm and relaxing at that time of day, and the light is nice both in the early morning and late afternoon.
This couple opted for a change of outfits in middle, and I love the different looks. I find the bold colors (red especially!) really pop against the blue of the sky and the water, while the white and blue outfits provide a totally different look that I love just as much. What is most important for any session is to wear outfits that you LOVE and you feel amazing in – and is comfortable (very important). If you plan on going in the water, wear an outfit you don’t mind getting wet in (and give me a heads up as well so I’ll be prepared! :)). You can check out this maternity Pinterest board for ideas on what to wear.
If you are wondering when to schedule a maternity session, generally it is in the 7th and 8th month, but it really depends on how you are carrying. You want to schedule the photo session when you are really showing but not at the point of pregnancy that you are very uncomfortable.
This Miami Maternity Photographer Sunrise Beach session took place at South Pointe Park. Check out all the maternity photo sessions on the blog. You can check the sunrise and sunset times for Miami to see the best times to schedule a session. If for example, if sunset is at 8pm I’ll usually schedule the session for 6:30-7:30pm or 6-7pm. If sunrise is at 6:45am, generally around 7-8am is a good time. If you are flexible and it is a cloudy day, I like to start the session earlier or later so we have more light to work with. If you are not flexible, no worries, we’ll make it work!
