Surprise Proposal Photo Shoot

Villa Borghese Lake. Rome, Italy

A beautiful and romantic surprise wedding proposal candidly photographed at the Villa Borghese lake in Rome Italy. Overlooking the Temple of Asclepius found across the lake. A temple dedicated to the god of healing. A surprise which was welcomed with overwhelming joy and happiness! And after catching breath, acquaintance was made with the photographer and videographer. Soon after to begin taking nice engagement photos trying out different poses.
Then some drops of rain started to appear. And one drop after another a thunderstorm fell upon us! Where everyone scrambled for cover. We found cover underneath a low branch tree. Which provided a nice shelter at first, but the rain started to prevail and at some point we had to change cover. But before fleeing to a nearby bar. We saw a turtle also running for cover but in the wrong direction from the lake.

After the rain had quieted down. We walked back to the lake to finish our engagement photos. And to help the turtle find its way back to the lake!
