When a hurricane decides to interrupt your engagement session plans and you have to postpone your photo shoot date you can only hope that the next time you’ll have amazing weather to make up for it. The following couple were extremely lucky that way. Sure rescheduling is inconvenient for all of us, but for this session in particular, it was a very small price to pay for a high reward of a perfect morning at the beach. I love the way the pastel light just lingered all throughout the shoot. Ari & Albert hadn’t shared a picnic by the ocean before but after such a lovely time, I know it won’t be the last. We explored South Pointe Park as we nearly had it to ourselves that day (a rare thing in South Beach).
November can’t come soon enough for these two romantics. They left their west coast of Florida to come join me one sunny morning for a sunrise session at the beach… and it was so worth the drive. Often times we cross our fingers and hope that we will have a pretty display of light during our portrait sessions. This time around for Rosemary and Alex, it had to be a sunny day. You may recall their faces from their previous engagement session ( click here ) in Lover’s Key had an overcast day. Rose had envisioned the sun glow so badly that she decided to book another session and this time around, we had the perfect light she wanted.
High school sweetheart stories are amongst my absolute favorite love tales of all time. My next couple have more memories to share of the time they were together than recollection of before that time. After five years of being together, Damian planned a dream proposal for Juliet. He brought her to Bill Baggs State Park and had already decorated all the steps up the lighthouse with pictures of them through the years. I could only imagine the anticipation Juliet must of felt to reach the top awaiting the big moment. Once they reached the balcony, in the tightest of spaces, Damian asked her the one question she knew she would automatically say yes to. And as if that wasn’t enough of a grand idea,
It has been a long streak of engagement sessions one after another that I literally can’t wait until all these soon-to-be brides celebrate their big day. There are so many plans, beautiful dresses, all of them having different colors and styles that come autumn it will be one fun wedding season to partake in. This next couple will certainly be amongst the ones we celebrate grandly as they become husband and wife. On a very calm and beautiful morning we explored the shores of Key Biscayne capturing images of their sweet love. It was such a nice day after all the ugly weather we had been experiencing. The next images are my favorites from our time together. Jorge & Yordana,
It had been a couple of weeks since I had last photographed a session at Matheson Hammock park and this time I was in for a treat since my couple was visiting from Naples for their session. The many spanish moss filled oak trees were a sight that Ruthmary envisioned for her engagements and although it’s quite popular for us, it’s something she’s not used to seeing back home. As we arrived in the park I crossed my fingers that the rain would hold up long enough for us to have our session and thankfully, it did. Just long enough for us to explore the park together. Ruthmary and Elionel, I can’t wait to see you both again the day you promise each other forever.
