Pre Sunset Engagement shoot

Searching for the Golden Hour

A fun and creative Rome Photo Shoot Engagement session. Starting out on the Ponte Umberto I bridge. The bridge over from Ponte degli Angeli. Which has a fantastic view over Saint Peter’s dome in the far distance. But in a backlit scene. So we were shooting against the sun here. It was tricky getting the right exposure. But with the help of an improvised remote flash light. To contrast the beautiful but backlit golden hour light. We got some pretty good pictures with a great mix of light!

Then we set off into the ancient cobblestone streets found in around the area. Finding some great spots where I hadn’t photographed before.  Popping out in Via dei Coronari. A really nice area to get some contextualized images of people walking and mingling in a roman atmosphere.

We left a good part of our photography hour together for Piazza Navona. Which we photographed from fountain to fountain! Getting some really nice pictures of being in love and together in Rome!
