Taylor and Jon Paul’s Engagement Shoot at the Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens

Posted on March 5, 2013



I had the pleasure of photographing Taylor and Jon Paul’s engagement session at the magnificent Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach. This location is truly one of the most unique and a great setting for a South Florida engagement shoot. Since 1977, the Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens has been a center for Japanese arts and culture. There are six diverse gardens that represent different historical periods and styles of Japanese gardens


I am really looking forward to photographing Taylor and Jon Paul’s wedding next year at BallanIsles Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens. It’s always a great idea to do an engagement shoot with your photographer so that you get a feel for working together. It is especially helpful if the couple is a bit nervous about having their photos taken. As a South Florida wedding photographer, I find that the engagement shoot experience is one that allows couples to loosen up and get used to the entire picture taking process.


We always recommend that our brides to be have their hair and make-up done for their engagement shoots. Some brides schedule their hair and make-up trial on the day of their engagement shoot - which is a great idea. Also, it is a good idea to bring along a hair clip or barrette in case of windy situations, especially on the beach. Long hair and wind just don’t make for good pictures, so it’s best to be prepared.


As a South Florida wedding photographer, I always want my brides and grooms to feel comfortable and at ease while shooting. Most couples do opt to do an engagement shoot and then at the wedding, they pretty much know what to expect when we are photographing them. They are more at ease with the process and are enthusiastic; as they know they end result will be amazing photos! Whether in Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, or Miami – South Florida engagement shoots are definitely worth doing.


Thanks so much to Taylor and Jon Paul for a great time at their engagement shoot. They were great sports and I know that their wedding pictures will be absolutely incredible.
