How does it work?

We know the burden and responsibility of carrying the ring. It’s not easy.. The secrecy of maintaining the element of surprise while dealing with everything involved. But we can help to make it work!
All our sessions are candid real life proposals. Where we pre plan all the details ahead of time via email in order to maintain the best surprise effect. Leaving out a good portion of uncertainty from the equation. Meet with the proposal photographer in Rome discreetly and directly onsite at a pre determined spot. Where you will follow the photographer to the exact proposal location. From there on the photographer will be staying at a distance ready to snap whenever you are ready to propose.

FAQ

How will I meet with the photographer on the proposal day?

After pre planning all the details, meeting with the proposal photographer in Rome will be easy. You will receive the precise meeting point via email. And at an agreed date/time you will find the photographer waiting for you there. After exchanging a silent symbol to make sure you have recognized each other. The photographer will lead you to the exact proposal location. Hopefully without your partner noticing anything!

Can I get a few proposal pictures right away to share with friends and family?

Yes. We have the 2 week Expedient Delivery which includes a delivery of 3 pictures within the same day of the proposal as raw files without post processing. And all the pictures delivery w/post production enhancement within 2 week’s time from the photo session’s date. So please make sure to include this in the Instant quote above for a quick turnaround!

Evening or daytime shoots for best picture quality?

Daytime sessions produce more images that are more clearly visible in terms of expressions and details. As there is enough light to zoom in or out of the frame or to freely choose the proposal spot.
Evening sessions are harder to pull off due to the progressive lowering of the light. And the impossibility of using a flash as it would give the surprise effect away. However you can achieve more artistic pictures with more contrast and intense colors especially at sunset/dusk. You are also often confined to setting the proposal location next to available street light with all the uncertainties that this may produce.
In the end daytime sessions are safer and produce a higher picture count with lots of more visible details. Evening sessions are riskier but potentially more rewarding in terms of picture quality if you are going for a more artistic approach.

How many pictures will I receive?

As many as we shoot. Conditions permitting, for a daytime session you may expect minimum of 60 pictures an hour digitally delivered with post production processing. Evening session produce less images as they are harder to shoot due to the lower light conditions. Perhaps 40 pictures and hour.

What happens in case of rain?

Couple holding an umbrella at Parco del Pincio during a rainy day in RomeRain is a natural occurrence that may very well ruin a surprise wedding proposal. Or at least the idea of it that we have in our heads. It could also make it most romantic depending on the point of view! In any case if you wish to avoid a rainy day we will try to do all we can to reschedule to a mutually agreeable date/time. We do kindly ask you to communicate this to us at least 3 hrs before the photo shoot starting time. If the session cannot be rescheduled to a mutually agreeable date/time we believe in granting full refund. All these details and more are contained the terms and conditions at the end of the above booking form above.

What are the payment options?

We currently accept wire transfers, credit card payment through PayPal and cash on site.
