Surprise Proposal Vizcaya Gardens Miami Photographer

Joe wanted to propose to his girlfriend at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. They are both from England and were in town for the Superbowl LIV in Miami. He sent me the signed permit and fees in advance, a requirement to photograph in the gardens at Vizcaya. I sent him a map and directions of where to go when he got there. He also sent me a photo of the two of them and what they’d be wearing that day so I’d know who to look for.

It was a relatively quiet morning at Vizcaya, most likely due to the events occurring in South Beach during the Superbowl. While waiting on a bench outside of the Tea House, I spotted them both from a distance near the water. He walked with Emma into the Tea House and taking advantage of having the place all to themselves, he quickly got down on one knee. He sweetly took her hand and kissed it and asked her to marry him. After placing the ring on her finger and embracing, he pointed in my direction. Love those photos showing their excited and shocked expressions!

We then spent the remainder of the hour walking to some of my favorite spots in Vizcaya. I even discovered a new area that was empty of people and had gorgeous light streaming in. Some areas of Vizcaya can have mosquitoes depending on the time of year, so mosquito repellent is a good thing to have just in case.

I had such a blast working with these two! If you are interested in booking a surprise proposal, engagement or a just-because couples photo shoot, contact me here. You can also send an email to info@tovaphotography.com or tovaphotography@gmail.com.

Vizcaya Museum Surprise Proposal Engagement Photographer

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.

Vizcaya Proposal Photography Session

It was such a joy working with this couple and having the opportunity to capture such an important day in their lives. The plan we worked out in advance was that he would propose in the “Tea House” which is located behind the Vizcaya Museum.

I sat on a bench thats next to the Tea House nervously waiting for them to pass me. They came with some of their family members as well, so the group passed me and I followed them. The family allowed the couple to enter the Tea House first. They put their arms around each other and lovingly embraced- though she still hand no idea what was about to happen… As he reached into his jacket to pull out the ring, she put her hands over her mouth in utter shock. This was actually happening. He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him, and of course she said yes. With tears of joy running down her face, she hugged their loved ones that were standing nearby and showed them the ring. It was an emotional moment for everyone.

We spent the rest of the time photographing around Vizcaya gardens. It’s a wonderful place to photograph because there are so many different beautiful backgrounds.

I am so overjoyed for these two beautiful people and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness together. I received this really sweet email from them after I sent them their photos. Sharing it with their names removed for privacy:

Dear Tova,

WOW WOW WOW!!! I am in love with these photos. Both K and I are amazed with how well they turned out. You did a phenomenal job!!! Thank you so very much for this great work you’ve done. Thank you for your time, energy, effort, and work!

Again, thank you Tova!
Warm Regards,
N & K
