When it comes to Miami, what isn’t there to love? From the vibrant culture to the sprawling beaches and ornate architecture, this is the perfect place to take your engagement photos.
Whether you got engaged here or are just visiting and in search of some unique engagement session spots, here are some of the best Miami engagement photoshoot locations.
Ideas for Beach Engagement Photos Session Spots in Miami
With 16 beaches in Miami and surrounding areas, we couldn’t have a list of the best Miami engagement photoshoot locations without some water!
Walk hand in hand on the pier at South Pointe Park. This spacious park that overlooks the ocean is one of the best Miami engagement photoshoot locations! What makes it so great? You can have different options for backdrops---without having to travel to another location. If you’d like some park photos, you can lean up against a tree for some greenery shots. Or if you want ocean views, then pose up against the pier when the sun begins to set.
Location: 1 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
Showcase your love for each other and for Miami at the Beach Boardwalk. The Miami Beach Boardwalk gives you a taste of all that Miami has to offer: views of the Atlantic ocean, a decadent skyline, and colorful architecture. The path actually begins at the southern part of South Beach (at South Pointe Park, mentioned above) and continues down the border for 7 miles.
Location: 500 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South End)
Pose near the fountains at Bayfront Park. Located in downtown Miami and spread across 32 acres, Bayfront Park is a beautiful location for engagement photos. They have a stunning lawn, tropical rock garden, fountain, and a historic waterfall. You’ll also have a great view of the Biscayne Bay with access to a beach area.
Location: 301 North Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33132
Lean against a palm tree at Crandon Park beach. If you’re envisioning iconic beach photos, head over to the northern end of Key Biscayne to visit the beach at Crandon Park.
The Crandon Park Beach has towering palm trees, white sand, and clear water.
There are also walking paths and scenic trails that overlook the ocean and would be great for some photos. And once you’re done at the beach, you can head over to one of the many Crandon Park attractions---from golfing to tennis to a nature center.
Location: 6747 Crandon Boulevard, Key Biscayne, FL 33149
Draw your wedding date in the sand at Sunny Isles Beach. For another beach option, head to this two-mile section of Miami Beach. Sunny Isles Beach is known for being more private than the other popular beaches in the area. Bring a blanket to sit in the sand, and then walk hand and hand down the shoreline for beautiful photos!
Location: 18115 North Bay Road, Sunny Isles Beach, FL 33160
