How does it work?

Rome is a very beautiful and unique place to take couple photos. Especially in certain locations and at a precise time. We streamlined the process of setting up a Rome photo shoot.  Simplifying the pricing and quotation process. Presenting to you a very simple and easy method of booking. Where you will be able to custom design your Rome photoshoot as you see best. Starting from a 1 hr photo session in one of the most iconic locations in Rome. Such as the Roman Colosseum or the Trevi fountain. Adding from there additional time or additional services like car service. To easily reach even the most far away locations. Or to conveniently keep things in the car that you don’t want in the session. Hair and make up service. As well as wide range of post processing options!

Andrea is personable, punctual, and incredibly talented. Amazing experience! We are very pleased with the photographs taken by Andrea.

What can you expect from the photoshoot?

Feeling at ease with the city and the language. Visit the city together with your partner almost as if the photographer was not even there! Build at the same time a romantic love story composed of authentic images of the most spectacular places that only a local expert can indicate. Unique and creative compositions that recall the city of Rome in all its beautiful splendor. Favoring fun and joyful images. As you walk around and enjoy the day. In a candid and spontaneous way. With unique angles and creative style. Adapting the approach according to your personal preference. Creating authentic and non conventional picture memories for your honeymoon, anniversary or engagement session or following a surprise proposal shoot. Your professional photographer in Rome.


How can we best prepare for the photo shoot?

If this is the first time you are taking pictures together. You could take a look at some of the couple photos we have taken. To get inspiration from poses and different situations. Please have a look at our Pinterest profile. Specifically the couple photo session board. Which is subdivided by roman location. Where you will find lots of couple picture ideas. Once you have reserved a photo shoot with us. If you have a Pinterest account you could pin some of the photos onto a board and send them over to us. So we can take a look at what you like best and we could also use these pictures during the session as posing inspiration.

On a 1 hr photo session I will receive a minimum of 40 pictures/hour. Are these photos touched up?

Yes the 40 pictures/hr are inclusive of post production processing. It is a minimum number. Should we shoot more photos we will be happy to include any extra pictures with Touch Up at no extra cost. The touch up work includes fixing framing if needed. Improving exposure, color, contrast. Adjusting white balance if necessary. Optimizing image sharpness. Ir does not include changing a person’s characteristics or altering a person shape. Adding or removing objects or persons.

What if it rains on the day of the session?

In case of rain we can reschedule to a mutually agreeable date/time provided that the rescheduling request for rain is send in via email at least 4 hrs before the start of the photoshoot. If the rescheduling is not possible the studio will return the deposit payment back.

This said prior to the session, we always check weather forecast by the hour and if we see forecasted rain we always try to contact the client days before to decide what to do together.
Aside from the rain, shooting on a cloudy day is not necessarily a bad thing. We all want clear blue sky and bright vibrant colors in our photos. But an overcast day brings other interesting elements to the photography. Adding drama to the picture frame. Increasing contrasts and making the image interesting in its own way. It also provides a great opportunity to turn photos into black and white. As the latter photographic effect plays great on a cloudy day.

What if I include the 'Retrieve All Picture file' option?

With the retrieve all picture files option you will also receive, together with your touched up 40 pictures/hr,  all shot pictures in high resolution with no post processing.
Let’s make a 2 hr session example: we end up shooting 237 photos. 97 are selected for touch up processing and delivery. Yes the 40 pictures/hr is a minimum number of receivable photos. If there are more we will be happy to include them with post processing at no extra cost.
If you select ‘Retrieve all pictures files’ you will also receive the 237 picture files shot as is with no post processing.

Does the black and white conversion also come with colored pictures?

Yes the black and white conversion is an add on to the color photos which are included by default when booking a photo shoot of any length in time.

What should we wear for the photo shoot?

Casual or formal attire. But not wedding attire. For wedding photography please consult the Rome wedding photographer session for details and bookings.

For couple photo sessions please dress according to the setting. If we are shooting in a park environment favor casual and informal clothing. For urban settings like the city of Rome or a Hotel go you can go for more formal attire. Trying to coordinate the color scheme. But not going overboard. Accessories play a big part in finding colors and styles that may bridge with your partner. But most of all feel comfortable with whatever you are wearing.

If it is summer in Italy choose light colors where girls may want to favor dresses and guys linen to escape from the heat. We like the color red for dresses that overlay nicely with white marble often found around the city. Purple is also an interesting color.

What about a change of clothing during the session?

Having alternative attires adds dynamism to the photo session. Going for a change of clothing on a 1 hr session is feasible using a public restroom. But the timing might be compressed to get a good number of shots. Extending the session to 2 hrs usually gives more breathing room to take pictures. If coupled with a minivan car service than it becomes easier. Where one could change in the back of the minivan as we transfer from one location to another. Having a car also helps in being able to leave things in the car and not having to carry everything by hand

What time is best?

The best time for a Rome photoshoot really depends on the chosen location(s). It is widely believed that shooting at sunset produces the best photos. This is not always the case. For example the sun may be setting behind tall buildings producing large shadow areas which does not provide for the best light. Early morning sessions are also believed to have the intense lighting. But a positive result depends on how this lighting shines a location. So you really need to know the city and how it relates to light to choose the best time to be there to take pictures.  I often check sunrise and sunset times in Rome to make sure we are going on location shooting at the right time.

How will I receive the photos?

Pictures will be delivered online by cloud transfer service. A link will be sent to you via email where you will be able to download the High and Low resolution files inclusive of post production processing and all printing rights. Please note pictures cannot stay on the cloud server indefinitely. But only for the time needed to transfer them. We usually set this time as 2 weeks but we can extend this if you need extra time. So please take ownership of the images once you receive the download link.

How long will the delivery take?

Pictures are processed and delivered on a first in first out basis. This may take up to 1 month depending on the season and the current work flow. If you wish to speed up the process you may select the expedient image delivery. This includes a 5 picture selection to be received in Low resolution on the day of the photo session as raw files with no post processing. With all the pictures to be delivered within 2 weeks if not earlier in High and Low resolution including post processing enhancement.

How does Payment work?

Payment is done by leaving a 30% advance payment via PayPal at the moment of booking. Through our instant price and book form. This enable you to reserve a date/time slot for your photo session. The remaining balance is due in EURO cash on the day of the photo shoot at the end of the session. Or again by PayPal +6% payment transfer fees on a later date and before final image delivery.
