Z Ocean Hotel South Beach Rooftop Proposal

The Plan: Ryan wanted to propose to his girlfriend on the rooftop of the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. His idea was to for me to start out photographing the entire family, take some individual photos of his 1 year old daughter, and then some of just him and his girlfriend. I would then take some solo shots of his girlfriend. For one photo, I would tell her to look out over the balcony which would be his cue to get into place on one knee behind her. I would then tell her to turn around and he’d pop the question.

How it went down: The rooms at the Z Ocean Hotel have their own rooftop space. So I met them in their suite and we walked out directly to the rooftop. I photographed them and their very adorable little girl. They put her in a crib with a toy and she watched as I photographed her parents together. I told Sam to face the water and Ryan got down on one knee behind her, with his hands holding the open ring box in front of him. When I told her to turn around, she saw Ryan and was in complete shock. She covered her mouth with her hands, getting emotional as Ryan asked her to marry him. She said yes!! He put the ring on her, they embraced and we took a few more photos as the sun was setting.

Sam said she usually knows exactly what Ryan is up to, but she literally had no idea! He built up this idea of getting family photos taken, so she really had no idea he was actually planning a surprise proposal. He left me this review after the session:

“Tova did an amazing job helping me surprise my fiancée with a proposal photo shoot, she was also great with my 1 year old daughter & was able to keep her smiling for pictures which is no easy task.”

Paul and his girlfriend Samantha are from Australia and were planning their first trip to the United States. On the itinerary was Miami and Southern California. They were going to spend a few days in Miami and also take a cruise. While doing a search for Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Paul found my website and reached out. He wanted to propose to his girlfriend of four years. Vizcaya is not only a beautiful and romantic spot, it also happened to be fairly close to where he was staying in Brickell (the financial district in Miami).

The plan: I sent Paul a map of Vizcaya showing him where the Tea House is so he would know exactly where to go (He wanted to propose in the Tea House, a structure located behind the museum). He sent me a photo of him and Sam so I knew who to look for that day. I told him I’d be waiting on a bench just outside of the Tea House.

How it went down: It was a Friday morning and I arrived a little early to Vizcaya. It was fairly quiet, but people were starting to arrive to tour the museum and gardens. I sat on a bench opposite the Tea House and soon enough I spotted the two of them from a distance. They went into the Tea House at a moment when no one else happened to be in there. They hugged and looked out toward the water. Paul pulled out a slim ring box from his pocket and went down on one knee. Sam’s face lit up with a huge grin. She said yes!! They embraced, Paul relieved, Sam ecstatic.

We spent the remainder of the hour walking around the gardens of Vizcaya. They were so great to work with; easygoing, fun and completely in love.

Miami Beach Proposal and Family Photo Shoot

For this session, Ernesto was planning a surprise proposal. He wanted to propose at Vizcaya so we planned to meet there on a Friday afternoon. Hurricane Dorian had been threatening Florida all week and everyone was anxiously watching the news, hoping it would turn away from us. In anticipation of the possible arrival of the hurricane, some stores were closing even though the weather outside was still nice. I called Vizcaya and they said they were closing at 3pm in order to prepare for the hurricane. Our photo shoot was supposed to be at 3:30pm so I contacted Ernesto to let him know. We quickly changed the location to South Pointe Park.

The weather cooperated and was sunny and blue and beautiful! I followed them from a distance once they arrived at the park and captured the moment as he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes!! We then went photographed on the beach and in the greenery for a variety of family photos. Their baby girl is so adorable and surrounded by two parents who love her to pieces.
