Chic Spring Miami Engagement

Leave it to Sawyer Baird to elevate our Saturday to a whole new level of chic. With a sunny spring day in Miami and quite possibly the cutest couple EVER, she worked her magic behind the lens and the result is everything an engagement session should be – fun, fresh and chock-full of love. Peek at the full gallery over here.


From Sawyer Baird… Delaine & Michael are some of the sweetest humans I have ever met! When we were discussing locations for an engagement session many places came up… some being Savannah, Jacksonville, etc. Finally we decided that we would love to go somewhere that neither of us have been before – Miami. Delaine & Michael live in Tampa so the short drive was nothing for them & the quick plane ride for me was easy too.

When scouting out Miami I had known about Vizcaya for some time. It was on the back of my mind from the very beginning. I knew that it would just be something special. After talking to Delaine and showing her the images of Vizcaya we knew that it was the perfect fit for them. We were also excited to know that it would be something different than what is common for most engagements. They trusted me 110% on this one – and I am so so happy that they did.

Later we continued the engagement session to a nearby beach with some of the city in the background. We grabbed coconuts (well my other half 6’6′ man did!) and had a little picnic on the ocean complete with a beautiful sunset!

It really was the perfect day…
