A Fairytale Engagement Session at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, FL

When Katie and Richard asked me to photograph their engagement session at Vizcaya, I swear, I did a little happy dance. Vizcaya is one of my favorite venues in all of South Florida and these lovebirds are, to date, one of the happiest, most in-love couples I’ve ever photographed.

The gardens provided the perfect background to document their fairytale love story, and Katie’s delicate white dress and flower crown completed the look …fit for a princess. Now let’s talk about her engagement ring, how exquisite is it? The deep blue sapphire stone makes a beautiful contrast against her skin tone, and likely is a reminder of her fiancé Richard who happens to be a sailor.

Wishing them a magical life together, and until the next garden-venture,

Diana

A Rustic Engagement Session For Nature Lovers in Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, FL

Do you know that feeling when you’ve found your person? Andrea and Tim certainly do.

Andrea and I met last year when I photographed one of her fur-kids, Rambo, so I couldn’t be happier when she called this year announcing her engagement.

Andrea and Tim couldn’t be more perfect for each other. They share a love of the outdoors that includes camping, fishing and hunting… you name the adventure, they do it together. So it was no surprise when they asked for an ‘Everglades feel’ for their engagement session and boy did we capture that. The entire session theme came together thanks to all the details Andrea put together, it doesn’t hurt that she is an event planner so I cannot wait to see what she does for her wedding.

Join me in congratulating this adventurous pair which I cannot wait to photograph again.

Until the next nature-venture,

Diana

Engagement, Fort Lauderdale

Engagement Session at Las Olas Riverfront, Fort Lauderdale, FL.

What is sweeter than a couple in love? Well, nothing is, unless they bring bubbly and rosé to their engagement session. Also, the gazebos around Las Olas Riverfront are to die for and I can’t wait to be back.

Join me in congratulating Caitlin and James in their recent commitment. We had a blast during their Fort Lauderdale engagement photo session and I am beyond excited to share a bit of their gallery.

Until the next cheers-venture,

Diana

Nautical Themed Engagement Session. Lauren and Edward, Jupiter, FL.

Nothing warms my heart more than when couples choose intimate places to photograph their love story. Lauren and Edward had the pier in their Jupiter community as background for their engagement session; and it made all the sense in the world as next year they will be hosting a nautical wedding at Out of the Blue Waterfront in Jupiter, FL.

The second thing that absolutely speaks to me is when couples are so in love that you can feel it in the air. Lauren and Edward’s engagement session was effortless; I only had to say “Look at each other” and an abundance of smiles and sweetness would come flowing. They are both adorable, and tender with each other. I honestly have the best clients in the world, who, if you ask me,  might {secretly} be models.

Third are vintage engagement rings. Lauren’s ring had me at HELLO;  the elegance and timeless style is an eye catcher, every time  {maybe I should update my ring collection, being that it’s the holidays and all}.

After photos at the pier we headed to Jupiter Beach, where despite a rough tide and strong winds we managed to capture beautiful moments. I even succeeded {in post-production} at giving them a blue ocean to match their nautical wedding theme.

Wishing this loving pair a joyful life together, and until the next seaside-venture,

Diana

Charming Engagement Session in Worth Avenue. Glenda and Alexander, Palm Beach, FL

A few months ago, I met Glenda and Alexander as they were planning their wedding and I knew right away we would be a great fit to work together. We scheduled their engagement photo session on a pleasant Sunday afternoon in dreamy Palm Beach, FL. I had showed Glenda another gallery photographed in Worth Avenue and she loved the place so much, she didn’t mind making the drive from Miami.

They brought their fur-kid Stewie, who I have to say, is not only adorable but also very well behaved. They wanted to include him in their engagement photos because to them {as it is to me} dogs are family too.

Today is their wedding day, and as I prepare my gear to document their commitment to one another,  I can’t help but wish them all the happiness in the world {and lots more Stewie-cuteness}.
