Rome couple photo shoot

By 25 October 2021Couple, Rome

What an incredibile photo shoot in Rome

With just an amazing couple! Starting at the Roman Pantheon and hitting just about every main location in Rome. Capturing the essence of every spot with a spontaneous and carefree frame of mind. Trying on new dresses and clothes and trying to match them to the different locations! So we started with the Pantheon which came out great. The attire fitted perfectly with the surroundings. Recalling the light and dark areas created by the beautiful soft morning light which was shining through the square and into the water fountain. Perhaps, one of the best dress of them all!

The couple photo shoot in Rome continued at the Trevi fountain. Where the first rays of light were starting to shine through. And here the blue dress recalled the azure color of the water in the fountain. Notwithstanding the early time, we had to elbow a little bit to get through and to get the right pictures. Choosing the best time to go to the Trevi fountain is not easy. As in the really early morning there are certainly less people present but in a light which is not often not ideal. Still dark and shaded and lacking bright vivid colors. The light improves as the morning rolls in but the number of bystanders also increases. Finding the middle ground somewhere in between.

Our next stop was the Spanish steps. Where we found beautiful shining light over the skyline. Choosing darker attires in contraposition to the white marble that covers a good portion of Piazza di Spagna. Shooting some really breathtaking views over the roman skyline. Then making our way into the secular square to take portrait pictures, posed and spontaneous shots as well as a sequence of ‘urgent‘ images running across the square! Ending the shoot at the very bottom taking pictures right below by the Barcaccia water fountain.

Hitting all the main locations

Including the side streets and hidden corners. Making our way to the Pincio park terrace outlook. A great place which has a spectacular view over the city. Often chosen as the perfect location to propose in Rome. When we arrived the small terrace was almost flooded with water from the recent rains. A good example of how an obstacle can turn into a photographic opportunity. What better occasion to shoot some great couple pics with the water reflection! Just needed to squeeze in a little bit and the frame was composed! With clear blue skies and great big fluffy clouds overhead!

Then we hopped over to the Saint Peter’s square in the Vatican, were we had a new change of clothing. Recreating a more casual mood of having fun and visiting the city. Shooting some great casual shots walking in the square holding hands and strolling around. Taking pictures both insisde and outside the square. As well as in around the colonnade. Which has fantastic geometrical effects.

Then we headed to the Janiculum square. Where we found the Fontanone water fountain as splendid as ever. With emerald green water and below the bright yellow court interior. Going for a new attire change. Resembling a bride and groom photo session. Especially with the black and white images that came out. Beatifully contrasted between the couple and the city in the back ground. Although this location may be a little bit off the city center. It’s got some of the best photographic angles.

This photographer session wouldn’t be a complete without including the Roman Colosseum. Changing into a new attire which perfectly fitted the ancient location as well as the light that was coming down. With the best part yet to come. Shooting on a white Piaggio scooter used as a prop and positioned in a characteristic and typical roman alleyway with the Coliseum as background! After capturing some great photos, we moved over to the other side of the Colosseum. Capturing some other unique and creative shots with a different angle of the Colosseum. Which came out really nice with some good contrast and colors.

Our last and final stop was Piazza Navona. Pulling out the last clothing attire change. Switching into more modern colors. Pink. Which had everyone turn their head as we were walking across the square. Taking pictures from one fountain to the next. Hoping that the Sant’Agnese Church would not fall on us as were taking our last pictures!
