THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO PLAN A PICTURE-PERFECT

PROPOSAL

Whether you envision a romantic sunset proposal on the sandy beach in Key West or a fun engagement shoot in the lush tropical foliage of the Florida Keys, I am here to turn your vision into a reality.

On the day of your proposal or engagement shoot, my goal is to create an atmosphere that allows you to fully immerse yourselves in this special moment.

If you’re having me capture a secret proposal, I will sneakily follow you to our picked spot to capture the moment and as soon as you’re over with your emotions, I will come out of my hiding, introduce myself and we will keep taking photos through the remainder of your session.

What’s Included with the Session

Phone Or Email Consultation

Our journey begins with a consultation. This initial conversation helps me understand your vision and expectations, making sure we capture the essence of who you are.

Wardrobe And Location Tips

To help you prepare for your session, I provide wardrobe and location suggestions. I’ll guide you on clothing choices that complement your personality and the desired look. Additionally, I’ll recommend locations that align with your vision, whether it’s the hectic vibe of downtown or the serene beauty of a beach.

Online Gallery With Your Photos

After the photoshoot, I select and edit the best images to showcase your beauty and personality. The final photos will be delivered to you in a secure online gallery. It is a user-friendly platform that allows you to conveniently review, select, and download your favorite images, and optionally purchase any print products.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

We can shoot at a location of your choice, or if you prefer, I can suggest one that I think would be perfect. For full sessions, I usually recommend sticking to two locations at most. Although Key West is a small island, the traffic can get pretty crazy, and finding parking can sometimes be a challenge. I also suggest having one outfit change so that you have some variety in your photos.

Yes, I do! I’m more than happy to travel anywhere in the Florida Keys to you, and for full sessions, there’s no additional charge for travel in the Lower Keys – up to a 40-mile roundtrip.

The ideal time to take pretty photos is about an hour to an hour and a half before sunset or early in the morning around sunrise. During these times, the sun is much softer, and it’s usually not scorching hot either, sparing us from squinting or excessive heat during the shoot.

While I can’t control the weather, and sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, I will work closely with you to reschedule your photo session to a more suitable day or time. Just keep in mind that the weather in South Florida can change rapidly, and what may initially seem like a stormy day could turn into a beautiful one with a breathtaking sunset, especially during the summer.

I recommend avoiding distracting patterns, large brand logos, and loud colors like bright red, orange, and green. Instead, opt for more subtle colors and simple patterns. Pastel colors are a great choice, and you don’t have to worry about matching your partner’s or family members’ colors. The clothes you wear for your photoshoot will set the tone for your entire photos, so choose wisely, however, try not to overthink it and just wear whatever clothes make you feel most comfortable.

Of course! All the photos are cropped, straightened, and color-corrected so they reflect my photography style which you can see through my website and social media. I do edit minor blemishes but I do not offer any extensive retouching work, sorry!

Yes, the gallery where I deliver the photos offers a wide variety of high-quality print products so be sure to check them out. As much as I enjoy the digital era, there’s something truly special about holding a printed photograph in your hand or proudly displaying a canvas in your living room. It’s a whole different experience compared to letting all those beautiful memories gather dust on your computer or phone. Trust me, it’s so easy to forget about them!

I believe in a balanced approach. While I capture spontaneous, candid moments as they happen, I also guide and pose you when needed to create beautiful portraits.

To secure your date, I require a signed contract and a 50% retainer. Once these are received, your session date is officially reserved on my calendar.

LAUREN & NICK

My Fiancé and I had our engagement pictures done in Key West! This was hands down the best experience I have had with and photographer. Filip is an amazing photographer and our pictures turned out better than expected. If anyone is debating between two companies, please choose this one!
If we were getting married in Key West, Filip would be the first person we would call to photograph the wedding.

Filip was absolutely amazing to work with! My fiancé and I wanted to get engagement pictures taken while we were on vacation in Key West, and they came out absolutely beautiful. The shoot was very comfortable and laid back, and our personalities were able to shine through in the pictures while capturing our “just engaged” feeling. I’ve had several family members ask who our photographer was so they could book their own session, and had to break the news we weren’t in New Jersey! I cannot recommend him enough!!
