Miami Engagement Photo Locations

“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.” ― Cassandra Clare

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

It is hard not to just love Viscaya Museum & Gardens! Located in the heart of Miami, in the Coconut Grove area. It is easily considered one of Miami hidden gems! The style of photography looks best when it is shot in a vintage artistic way. Modern digital doesn’t truly reflect the rustic beauty of this special location.

Vizcaya used to be the winter residence of James Deering (1859–1925),and was built between 1914 and 1922.

Originally, the Main House and the formal garden appeared as a dreamlike vision in the midst of the jungle on the shores of Biscayne Bay. At that time, the estate was entirely surrounded by subtropical forest.

For example; it combined imported French and Italian garden layouts and elements implemented in Cuban limestone stonework with Floridian coral architectural trim and planted with sub-tropic compatible and native plants that thrived in the habitat and climate. Palms and Philodendrons had not been represented in the emulated gardens of Tuscany or Île-de-France.

Building a villa  cost of $15 million, a lot of money at that time.  Vizcaya is noteworthy for adapting historical European aesthetic traditions to South Florida’s subtropical ecoregion.

Unfortunately,  Vizcaya s listed as one of America’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Places based on the threat of proposed highrise development on neighboring property.

Interesting fact the Vizcaya was the 1987 venue where President Ronald Reagan received Pope John Paul II on his first visit to Miami.

In my opinion, Wynwood is one of the city’s most interesting districts. Investors and artists have converted warehouses to craft breweries and funky art galleries.

Miami Beach

Miami Beach is a safe bet for engagement photography. You can soak up the sun, and then have a cool drink and stroll around on the famous streets. At the end you may end up in the water!

Advantages of Miami Beach:

– It is a safe outdoor environment with not a lot of restrictions during Covid
– Lighting is beautiful for engagement photography
– It is free

We have to keep in mind that the best time to shoot is early in the morning or late in the afternoon because there is too much sun reflected back from the sand.

For the best engagement photos in Miami Beach (Ocean Drive and the surrounding areas) it’s best to shoot early in the morning right after sunrise. The sun rises over the ocean and creates that beautiful yellowish warm colors everybody loves. I know it means getting up early and it can be very early for those ladies who want to have professional make up and hair for the photo session. The early morning sun is also best for capturing Ocean Drive. The the light pastel colors on the buildings are just beautiful.

Disadvantages:

– It can be busy with tourists
– Light may not be the best for photography in the middle of the day

You cannot go wrong with this session, especially if you are out of state. If you grew up in Miami you may want to branch out to somewhere a little less beat and track. Either way you can’t go wrong!

Bill Bags National Park + Crandon Park

This is an off the track and beat as far as beaches go! If you like a beautiful laid beach this is for you! Bill Bags is located at the South part of Key Biscayne. It has beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and an a beautiful Lighthouse, the 1825 Cape Florida Lighthouse. Parking is around $8 per vehicle, on weekends it is usually more. It is important that you finish your engagement session before sunset because they usually start ticketing cars after sundown. I have warned you! It happened to me once that I had a parking ticket waiting for me after night photo session.

Miami Railroad Station

The Gold Coast Railroad Museum was founded in 1956. It is one of three Official State Railroad Museums in Florida. It is an excellent location if you want to have a slight vintage look to your engagement photos. You can bring props and dress in a 50’s look or just come as yourselves!

 Prado Entrance | Coral Gables, Miami

Prado Entrance is registered in the National Register of Historic Places. The structure of Prado Entrance is located on a center parkway running north and south. It looks like a piazza.

Prado Entrance has a very distinctive structure; it’s got archways, a fountain in the middle, and nice greenery surrounding it. It has a reflecting pool with pedestal fountains (no water though) at each end of the two walkways that run parallel to one another. Originally the structure was named after the Museo del Prado, the national Spanish art museum in Madrid. It was designed by Denman Fink, Artistic Director of the Miami, in 1924. This entrance is considered to be the most architecturally elaborated of all the Miami’s entrances. Lots of great angles for photography.

Top 10 engagement photo session locations in and around Miami, Miami Wedding Photographers | Häring Photography, Indian Wedding Photographer in Florida, Best Muslim, Hindu - South East Asian Wedding PhotographersMy favorite time to take photos there is at night. That time it feels like you are somewhere in Europe. It feels like home.

Prado an amazing place to take engagement photos, however you need to apply for a permit before taking commercial photo or shooting commercial videos here: permit fees.  The permit fee is a little less then $100. It is well worth it, in my opinion.

There is plenty of parking but don’t park on the residential side because your car will be towed. Park in front of the entrance on the left. You can see one of my engagement photo sessions which I photographed partially here: Vizcaya engagement photo session

 

Your favorite Coffee Shop

You can find an amazing Coffee Shop anywhere in Miami. Sitting in side can be a great escape on a rainy day or a day that is so hot that you need some air conditioning.  Couples that we photograph love sharing a coffee or tea for an engagement session together because they often really feel like they are on a date. 🙂

On the ranch with horses!

Just drive in any direction out of the city and you will find a great photo engagement location with horses. It is a pleasant afternoon and a fun change of pace, especially if you seldom take the time to ride. Every time we have shot a horseback riding engagement session, both  beginners and experienced riders have a ball!

At the airport!

Flying is an exhilarating way to spend a afternoon with a loved one! Sit back and gaze out over Miami or consider flying to the Keys. You can rent a pontoon or a traditional small manned plan making a unique engagement session. Why be ordinary!
