An engagement photo session

By 10 May 2011July 3rd, 2014Couple

At the Roman Coliseum

We began our engagement photos under uncertain cloudy sky and stayed around the Roman Colosseum for the whole duration of our photo shoot. But there was nothing uncertain about this wonderful day as we took beautiful pictures trying out different techniques. Alternating color and black & white photography. We had a nice bar waiting for us just around the corner should the weather decide for rain.

Uncertain cloudy sky

The result was nice as the first drops of rain brought us inside an Italian bar where the romantic photography continued with a warm cup of coffee framed in a striking window view of the Roman Coliseum. In the meantime, the rain outside stopped for at least one more photo. Pictures can be so romantic in the rain. Especially if you have a photographer crazy enough to follow you! Best wishes on everything to come!
