The small lake in Villa Borghese
This was a very fun and fascinating surprise wedding proposal photographed at the small lake in Villa Borghese in Rome Italy. From a photographer’s point of view my concern at first was the light and the boat’s position but I think we decided on a good spot. I was photographing from the shore in between trees and it worked out perfect!
The engagement photo session
We met afterwards in euphoria and began our engagement photo session with a car which was waiting for us just outside Villa Borghese. We started on Ponte Umbero I with a view of Saint Peter’s Cathedral in the distance. On our way to the next location we stopped at a merry-go-round in front of Castel Sant’Angelo where we took some fun and joyful pictures.
Ponte Castel Sant’Angelo was next and then off to the Gianicolo water fountain overlooking the city of Rome from above. What stunning view. Our next stop was the roman Colosseum, Piazza di Spagna and Trinita’ dei Monti where we found a Maserati car just waiting to take a picture with us.
It was all going well until pigeons tried to surround us but breaking free was easy and provided new fun laughing opportunities. I wanted to thank you both again for the wonderful time and wish you all the best to come!
