If you have been thinking about having some Matheson Hammock Park Engagement Photos taken, then you are in the right place to get some information and inspiration!
Matheson Hammock Park engagement photos guide:
If you and your partner are the outgoing type and want to explore a cool location, for your Miami engagement session, then this park is the perfect location for you!
From big trees and open fields to a tiny little beach and some of the best bay views the city has to offer, this state park is the perfect location for couples that want to have fun during their engagement session.
Park location & times:
Located at 9610 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, FL 33156. Matheson Hammock Park is open from sunrise to sunset.
The park has easy to access free parking and in case the lot is full, you can park across the street.
Permits & fees:
If you are hiring a professional photographer, keep in mind that a permit is required. You can find more information about how to obtain a permit here
Sunrise engagement session:
Since Matheson Hammock Park has a tiny beach, having a sunrise session can be very romantic. The park at this time is very empty, so it would be perfect for couples that want a little bit of privacy.
What to wear for your Matheson Hammock Park engagement photos:
Truly whatever makes you feel comfortable, but since this is a park make sure that you wear flats or wedges (if you are choosing heels). Depending on the month you might experience mosquitos, so make sure you wear repellent, or your outfit has long sleeves.
The park has plenty of bathrooms, so if you want to change your outfit, you can do that with relative ease.
Can you bring your Dog to your engagement session:
This is something that you need to discuss with your photographer. If you are my client, dogs are always welcome!
The park allows dogs, so long as they are on a leash (and you must pick up after them).
My recommendation is that you bring a dog sitter with you, as having a dog can be a bit distracting.
