Palm Beach Engagement Photography – ALINA & RAFAEL

Sharing is caring!

Why Palm Beach engagement photography always results in amazing pictures!

I recently had the pleasure of taking Alina and Rafael’s Palm Beach engagement pictures.  Whenever I have an opportunity to create Palm Beach engagement photography I’m always thrilled. What a truly magnificent location for an engagement shoot. A hot spot all its own, Palm Beach, Florida is unlike any other area in the state. Playground of the ultra rich and famous, Palm Beach is beautiful and lush with a pristine coastline and world famous Worth Ave which is great for photography and for all of your high-end shopping needs.

Beach lovers will enjoy the wide and inviting beach located just off Ocean avenue.  As a photographer I have found that the beach at the end of Worth venue is one of the most picturesque beaches in South Florida.  While it’s not the largest beach, or the best kept beach, it have very nice picture perfect rocks that make for great backgrounds.  When Ocean waves roll into the sand the rocks break the waves creating water action.  The splashing of the water again to rocks makes the pictures much more exciting.

The beach at the end of Worth Avenue is perfect for engagement pictures.
Notice the perfect lighting on this couples face? By positioning the couple in the best light, I can take pictures with perfect facial lighting. The beach off of of South Ocean Road is one of my favorites because I can always find the perfect angle to get the most flattering light.

For Alina and Rafael’s Palm Beach engagement shoot, we began on Worth Ave. and worked our way in and out of the alleyways, taking advantage of all the natural beauty, architecture and unique features we encountered along the way. Eventually making our way down to the beach, we had a great time shooting photos along the way – there was literally an endless selection of backgrounds to shoot against. As a South Florida wedding photographer, I recognize an amazing location when I see one – and Palm Beach never disappoints. Whether photographing a Palm Beach wedding or engagement shoot, the immaculate and lush setting of Palm Beach makes for some incredible photos.

The store fronts and alleyways along Worth Avenue make for perfect picture taking locations. The warm glow of this stores side entrance was enhanced by the darkened covered walkway.

Now, for some information about our attractive bride and groom – this is paraphrased from Alina’s own words. 

Their journey began not to long ago when Alina and Rafael finally locked eyes on January 1, 2012, just a few hours after the New Year arrived. They spent every weekend together building on their magical chemistry. Their passion for one another developed into a daily eternal bond, as their love for each other only grew stronger and more stable with each moment that passed. They did their fair share of traveling throughout the year together, but one vacation came to be as unforgettable as any couple can dream up. Alina and Rafael became engaged on 12/24/12 in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. Even though their real journey together is only beginning, Alina and Rafael feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have found themselves to be married this fall. They are looking forward to sharing our wedding day with the ones they love and cherish the most, their closest friends and family on October 19, 2013. 

Palm Beach offers quaint beautiful and picturesque gardens, perfect for engagement pictures.
These engagement pictures were taken in one of Palm Beaches small gardens. The area around Worth Avenue is filled with these photo spots.

Often brides and grooms will choose Palm Beach as their destination wedding location. Wedding guests can choose from a very nice selection of hotels all local to the Palm Beach area. The Breakers, Palm Beach and the Four Seasons, Palm Beach are just two fantastic hotels local hotels. If your guest are ok taking a short drive south the Ritz-Carlton, Palm beach is another very popular hotel with an amazing beach for your wedding guests to enjoy.

One great benefit of taking engagement pictures in Palm Beach has to do with the wide range of photo locations.  Sometimes the South Florida weather is unpredictable.  Some days could be windy and others calm.  I have arrived at the beach at the end of Worth Avenue only to find seriously heavy wind.  The fact that Palm Beach offers nice gardens and beautiful walkways means that I can always get great shots.  Check out this photo that was taken in one of the upper walkways along a storefront cover.  Casually posed portrait taken in Palm Beach.    Here is a complete blog article that features another Palm Beach engagement session.  A beautiful Palm Beach Engagement photo shoot.

If you are a fan of unique alternative photography techniques, then you should check out some of my black and white infrared imagery.  Infrared photography is a real challenge and most photographers don’t do it.  That is exactly why I love it.  Here are some links to more of my infrared photography. Infrared wedding picture taken at Broken Sound Country Club     I love this infrared wedding picture.  Infrared wedding picture.
