An early morning in Rome
The Eternal city shows all of its splendor in the early hours of the day. Away from the visiting crowds with beautiful soft warm light low on the horizon. Choosing the right time is essential to balance nice lighting with the least crowds. And so we met not too far from the Colosseum where we first started our wedding couple photo shoot in Rome. Using an iconic tree stump as a pedestal to take some really unique wedding photos in Italy. With sunlight rising on the far right of the frame. Then we walked towards the front entrance of the Coliseum. To have the opportunity to shoot some more bride and groom pictures from a different angle and perspective.
Our next stop was Piazza di Spagna. So we hopped in the car and were there in little or no time as the streets were deserted. The Spanish steps were also empty and we were able to shoot essentially all by ourselves. Taking some really nice photos and keeping the black and white processing in mind during the shooting phase to obtain the best effects in post production. After capturing a good range of photos we drove onward toward Parco del Pincio. Setting up the shoot by the belvedere marble terrace with a spectacular view of Saint Peter’s dome in the far distance. And all of Rome slowing waking up..
