How He Proposed in Deerfield Beach

How He Proposed in Deerfield Beach

This is a beautiful story of boy meets girl and how he proposed.

Life’s Journey

Five and a half years ago, in high school, Nicholas captured Abigail’s heart. Now, life has never been better for the two of them and they’re ready for the next chapter.

Nicholas recently moved to Maryland for work and is coming back to Florida to help Abigail pack up her things to move up there with him.

The Plan

During all of my proposal consultations, I like to go through details very specifically. From where to propose, how to stand, what perspective, etc. With Nicholas, he was ready. He had a clear vision of what he wanted when we spoke about the proposal:

“I will tell Abigail that I want to revisit the park because it is the last time we’ll see it for a while; we’ve been going to this park for many years to meet up (that’s a long story). We will get out of the car and walk to the bench that is significant to us. I will talk to her, we’ll take a selfie, and then I will tell her, ‘we never get good quality pictures, I’m sure random bystander over there wouldn’t mind taking one for us with her nice looking camera.'”
“Then, I will walk to you, make small talk for a minute or so. We’ll ask you to take a photo of us. Because you will already be in position, I will then stand up after a few seconds, get on my knee, etc.”
By far, the easiest consultation I’ve ever had!

The Day is Has Finally Come

The day had finally come. I arrived onsite early to scope everything out and find their special bench.

This is a beautiful story of boy meets girl and how he proposed in Deerfield Beach. Nicholas and Abigail are high school sweethearts and are ready for the next step in their lives: a big move and an engagement!

Nicholas and Abigail arrived shortly after, while I was “photographing birds.” He did exactly as he planned and had me take a photo of them. Below is the sequence of photos from when I took their photo, him grabbing the ring out of his pocket, and then going down on one knee.This is a beautiful story of boy meets girl and how he proposed in Deerfield Beach.

A Dr. Seuss Baby Shower

Amber and Warren’s Dr. Seuss Baby Shower in Miami, Florida

Amber of Oh My Occasions has been planning and designing weddings and events for years. Known to plan and design lavish events, including her own wedding, she is planning another big event! Probably her biggest and most personal one yet: she and her husband are expecting!! Because these parents-to-be both loved Dr. Seuss books as children, it was the perfect theme for the celebration of their first child. And the Dr Seuss baby shower was the perfect gender -neutral theme inspired by “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” They took this theme and put their own spin on it: “Oh the Baby You’ll Grow.”

Having known Amber for a few years and lucky enough to call her and her husband my friends, I was beyond honored to not only be a guest at this amazing event, but to photograph it. #EventofTheYear!

To me, that meant having whimsical, loose, and wild centerpieces balanced with playful colors and words that fit our Dr. Seuss theme. Xquisite Events created the most dreamy decor: from the custom wrapped boxes that used our invitation images and designs from the book, to the funky and fun styrene balls that topped the white pedestals. And talk about funky flowers! Todd, the designer, put together all sorts of wild flowers that were straight out of a Dr. Seuss book! ” These parents-to-be both loved Dr. Seuss books as children and thought it’d be a perfect theme for the celebration of their first child.

Amber’s Absolutely Glowing Look

My gorgeous pastel dress was custom designed by Dora Sasu. It matched our invitations perfectly and was super comfy, which is a total must for any preggo!

“This game had guests guessing what the mystery flavors of baby food were.”

Take a whiff, or a taste if you’re braver! Have a look at what’s in the jars and guess the baby food flavor!’

Flavors from kiwi-carrot-pear to turkey were sniffed and some boldly tasted. As a tie-breaker for correct answers, the guests had to eat the remaining baby food in the turkey jar. The winner was a champ and chugged it!

This game “was an ode to Dr. Seuss’s “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish”. Instead, we swapped “blue” for “new” and included a Dr. Seuss character baby fish. The goal was for guests to guess how many Swedish Fish were in the bowl and the tricky part was that they were assorted sizes from mini to jumbo.

Janice and Michael’s Living Sculpture Sanctuary Wedding

Janice and Michael’s Living Sculpture Sanctuary Wedding in Davie, Florida

If you’ve ever visited this venue, you can see why any couple would be thrilled to have a Living Sculpture Sanctuary wedding. From the moment they stepped onto the property, Janice and Michael were in love. They loved the “whimsical and organic feel of the venue.”

Not to mention, orchids are Janice’s favorite flowers, and this venue is saturated with them! The Living Sculpture Sanctuary has elaborate floral walkways, a rock zen garden, bonsai display wall, tropical vegetation, and zen moon gates. It’s a tropical wedding dream come true! And have you seen the beautiful (what I like to call) “treehouse?” A perfect covered spot to get married!

Not Love at First Sight

While working at a local restaurant, Janice was serving a table of rowdy boys. When Michael, one of the rowdy boys, asked for her number, she laughed it off. He somehow managed to get it but there was no doubt in Janice’s mind that she’d never hear from him. Little did she know!

Michael was quite persistent and managed to persuade her to go on a date. And that was it! He was charming, handsome, with a sense of humor. Most importantly, he treated her like a queen!

In 2018, he popped the question at the Flamingo Gardens (I see a tropical theme here) and she said, “yes!”

Wedding Day

According to the happy couple, “the most memorable moment for us would definitely have to be first look. It was like time stood still for a few minutes.”

Time to Say ‘I Do’

“The theme of our wedding was ‘elegant tropical.’ We wanted to capture our heritage (Puerto Rican and Cuban) so we incorporated classic Bel Air and Latin music, with just hints of our culture as well.”

Janice and Michael wanted to share two tips for all you brides and grooms out there: “Try not to do too many DIY projects right before the wedding. And if you can afford it, definitely hire a wedding planner. It’ll make your life a lot easier.”

A big congratulations to the beautiful pair. Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your big celebration and cheers to forever!  🥂

Fort Lauderdale Couples Photoshoot: Ariel and Charlie

Fort Lauderdale Couples Photoshoot

Ariel and Charlie’s Fort Lauderdale couples photoshoot was a ton of fun! Visiting from Kentucky with Ariel’s family, these two are celebrating their senior year of high school. While enjoying much-needed time off, they figured they’d document their first vacation together. Ariel is no stranger to modeling and being in front of the camera, but they have never had a session together.

Time and Place

We decided to do their Fort Lauderdale couples photoshoot on the beach at sunrise, when it is less hot and humid. Choosing a location was easy since they were staying at a local hotel on the beach. We utilized the hotel gardens, as well as the beach itself.

Florida Senior Pictures

South Florida Senior Pictures

Back when I was graduating, senior pictures were done in a studio with fake props. They felt awkward, forced, and impersonal. I felt that my photos looked stiff but that’s how we did it back in the day. We didn’t know any better. So ‘awkward’ was the standard.

Now, senior pictures have been taken to a whole new level. Schools still offer in-studio, backdrop-included graduation photos. But when you work with a professional photographer, you will find the experience is way different.

Remember, this is YOUR day

It’s your big moment to shine and to proudly show off all the work you’ve accomplished. This is something you want to remember forever.

Professional photographers bring experience to the table, knowing how to work their camera, choosing the best locations to shoot, composing a beautiful photo, and posing you. But more importantly, we want you to have fun and for your personality to shine! A portrait is not a true portrait if it doesn’t look like you.

Tips for Choosing The Right Photographer

Senior pictures are a big deal! So make sure you choose the right photographer for you. Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you’re picking one:

  • Do you love their photography and editing style? Look at their website and Instagram to make sure you like what you see (colors, editing style, etc.)!
  • Does their pricing fit into your budget? Professional photographers can cost between $200-$500 per session. Pricing is based on experience, quality, and time. Photographers don’t just take photos, we also consult, have open communication, give tips on preparing for your session, as well as edit the photos so they are perfect for you to display and share!
  • If you have time, give the photographers a call! Speaking with them on the phone will give you an idea as to their personality and if theirs is a good fit. You want to feel comfortable with your photographer. The more comfortable you are with them, the more fun you’ll have and the more you will feel comfortable being you.

Although 2020 hasn’t been the most ideal year for graduates (with the COVID-19 causing a cancellation or delay in their ceremonies), these grads killed it and are on their way to new and exciting adventures! Let’s give them (and all grads) some recognition and a big ‘congratulations’!!!

I’m a huge fan of champagne-popping! Champagne can be expensive, and drinking in public is illegal, so another option is sparkling cider, especially if you’re tempted to drink it!

Want to know how to make the champagne pop and spray? These tips are described by CyclingTips.

1. Pre-shake champagne bottle before attempting to open.   Shake vigorously in a vertical motion.  Note the PRO stance.  Hunched forward, one foot back for balance, baseball cap on straight.

2. Once champagne is cocked and loaded, it’s time to open.  Note the little metal wire  around the cork .  You need to twist this wire in a counter-clockwise motion to unwind it from the cork.

3. Once you get the wire off the cork, it’s time to get the cork itself off.  This is another tricky part, but with proper technique it can be very elegant.    To get the cork off, hold the bottle in one hand and the thumb of the other hand pressing on the cork.  Press upwards, away from the bottle and the pressure should release the cork 15 meters into the air.  I know…the PROs make it look easier that it actually is…

4. Once the cork is off you NEED to create more pressure by blocking the bottle opening with your thumb so the champagne actually sprays out of the bottle.  Continue shaking while spraying.

If you have access to your cap and gown, bring it!!! Aside from the graduation ceremony, you will probably never see it again so take photos with it on and/or use it as a prop! Senior photos used to only be done in a studio with fake props.

Confetti is also a great prop to use, and so much fun! However, please keep in mind that we want to respect and take care of our world.
