Feast your eyes on these Vizcaya engagement photos! In Miami, Vizcaya Museum & Garden is one of the most sought-after locations for engagement photo sessions and weddings. The venue is located just a little south of Brickell and downtown Miami. Vizcaya’s charming English gardens, rustic gazebos, and expansive terrace facing the Biscayne Bay make it a perfect canvas to create incredible memories that last a lifetime.
You can imagine how stoked I was to capture Tiffany and Jimmy’s romantic engagement session at this magical place.
Tiffany and Jimmy booked me to capture their wedding at the Fairchild Botanical Gardens while I was living in California. I never thought for a moment that I would be creating their Vizcaya engagement photos. Approximately eighteen months from their wedding, I was in Miami visiting families and researching the possibilities of moving my wedding photography business to Miami.
I offered Tiffany and Jimmy an option to do their engagement photos while I was in town. They both agreed and were eager to set the date and time. The only problem was that I didn’t know where was the best place for an engagement session in Miami. I get to work researching and visiting many of the top-recommended engagement locations. This was how I found and fell in love with the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. Tiffany and Jimmy were equally excited to have their engagement photos taken at this historic and charming venue.
Tiffany & Jimmy are from California, and they met in South Florida on the job. They both work in the banking industry, and although they were working for the same company, they were in separate departments. However, as faith would have it, Tiffany’s manager went on vacation, and Jimmy was sent to temporarily fill Tiffany’s manager’s spot.
From that moment, Tiffany & Jimmy gradually got to know each other and discovered they had a lot in common. They would run into each other at meetings and hang out with mutual friends. During these chance encounters, their interest in each other began to blossom, and a season of blissful dating began.
According to what Tiffany told me, their relationship has been filled with fun to the brim. She always misses Jimmy when she’s away from him because he’s a joy to be with. When she sees him, she knows her worries are over. In other words, there’s never a dull moment! They always pick on each other and laugh uncontrollably. The joy was always without limit.
Tiffany wore her mom’s vintage ivory dress for the engagement shoot, which blends well with Vizcaya light and airy vintage appeal. She explained that the dress was sentimental to her and that she had many fun memories of her mom wearing that beautiful dress. Tiffany also said that her mom wore the dress to her father’s military retirement ceremony and looked amazingly stunning. Furthermore, Tiffany’s father passed away, which makes the dress even more sentimental.
Jimmy wore a mixture of vintage and modern. His blue slim-fit silk shirt and vintage sports coat, coupled with his turned-up trousers and sockless brown shoes were perfectly styled for this new and old Vizcaya engagement session. These two cuties will have a collection of unique and intimate photo moments to forever cherish. I’m forever grateful to both of them for trusting me to capture and create a little piece of their love story in one of Miami’s most sought-after engagement venues, the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens.
