Vizcaya engagement photos

The Complete Vizcaya Engagement: Top Photoshoot Locations

Commonly referred to as the Gilded Age estate, the Vizcaya mansions were built in the late-1800s by Parisian, James Deering (one of the richest bachelors in South Florida). Its expansive 43 acres of Renaissance gardens and preservation woodland recede into a mangrove shoreline, making it a perfect backdrop for your engagement photos. The weathered patina of the mansion creates the perfect engagement aesthetic, one that is echoed by the old-world beauty and charm of the stone features and gazebos.
