South Pointe Park 25 Year Anniversary and Family Photo Session

I had an incredible time photographing this family! They wanted to mainly capture couple photos for their 25 year anniversary and some family photos as well. We met at South Pointe Park before sunset. We started photographing in the greenery and on the rocks and then walked to the beach for the remainder of the session.

It was pretty coincidental that I had two sessions that day, both couples celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. In any case, working with this family was a dream Рand I know it was an opportune moment for them since their daughters are growing up fast, with the oldest already in college. After the session, Xanny left me a really kind review on Google:

We were looking for a photographer while on vacation in Miami. After lots of research we chose Tova. We are so happy we did. She did such an exceptional job capturing a beautiful moment that will last us a lifetime.

Feedback like that is one of the best parts of photographing. So grateful and lucky to be able to work with such nice people (my clients are the best ūüôā ) and to document the love and joy shared between¬†families and couples.

Miami Beach Surprise Proposal featured in Martha Stewart Weddings

Rodney contacted me about planning a surprise proposal for his girlfriend. We decided to meet at South Pointe Park. They spent some time in Little Havana and then took an uber to the park. I sat on a bench nervously waiting for them. He sent me a photo in advance so I knew who to look for, and he also texted me a description of their outfits. It was a weekend and South Pointe was bustling. When I saw them pass by me, I followed from a distance as they walked toward the beach. Since the beach itself was full of people, Rodney walked with her onto the rocks overlooking the water. I followed about 15 feet behind them. Milly looked around her to see if someone was around to take their photograph. Trying to be discreet, I pretended to photograph the view. Since no one else was around, Milly approached me: do you mind taking a photo of us? Little did she know that just minutes later Rodney would be proposing to her. She had no idea and was completely in shock and emotional. Meanwhile, everyone around us started cheering and clapping. It was a special moment.

The story doesn’t end there. A week after I posted their proposal photo on Instagram, I was contacted by Martha Stewart Weddings asking me if they could feature the photo for a proposal story they were working on. We were all pretty stoked about it. You can see their photo featured here: 27 Perfect Proposal Stories You Need To Read.

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.
