Trevi Surprise Proposal in Rome

By 6 July 2023Proposal, Rome, Trevi

Arranging a beautiful surprise proposal in Rome!

Trevi fountain

We arranged this romantic surprise wedding proposal in the very early AM. At dawn when the sun had just risen from the horizon. And where the street lights were still on to create a unique lighting effect. The moment was just perfect with minimal amount of people around. And when the time came around to finally met with the photographer and videographer. We made our way to the edge of the water fountain were we had set up for the best spot. The question came as a surprise and the moment was welcomed with so much overwhelming joy and happiness!

So after catching breath, we continued on with an engagement photo session around the fountain. Allowing us to take pictures which are usually impossible to take at other times as the Trevi fountain can be a very crowded place. So we tried different angle views and poses in both photography and videography. Until the lights turned out and the morning light started to prevail.

The Spanish steps

So we decided to take a walk to the nearby Spanish steps. Shooting along the way, finding interesting doorways to use as curious and backdrops. Then ultimately reaching the Spanish steps which we found virtually deserted. So we continued taking interesting pictures using frames that are normally not allowed by the pressing crowds. Taking some interesting photos and videos! Testing out different poses and ideas. Taking picures from the Barcaccia water fountain all the way up at top. Ending the photoshoot at the bottom of Piazza di Spagna with some final coule portraits!
