Is the proposal photography candid?

Yes we try to our best to maintain the spontaneity of the moment by photographing from a distance to keep the element of surprise and intimacy of the proposal moment.

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

After planning all the surprise wedding proposal details by exchanging emails ahead of time. On the day of the proposal we will meet nearby the chosen location. Exchange a secret signal that only we will know in order to make sure we have recognized each other. Then proceed to the exact spot. And once everything is in place, the moment can unroll and the photography will follow with the pictures from a distance. Hopefully without your partner noticing anything!

Can we have some proposal pictures right away?

Yes. By including the 2 week Expedient Image Delivery option at the moment of booking. You will be able to receive up to 5 photos right then and there, shot as is. And all the photos including post production processing within 2 weeks’ time if not earlier. Where the normally delivery times without selecting this option are approx 1 month. More on the post processing options.

When is the best moment of the day for best pictures?

For a more clear view of the proposal moment, the expressions and all the details of the location; the central daytime hours are best. As there is enough daylight to zoom into the frame to capture all the details. Evening session are more difficult to achieve due to progressive lowering of the light. So the ambience atmosphere can really be nice, but losing a little bit of the details of the moment. The ideal would be to shoot the proposal 1-2 hrs before sunset and then if one wants to achieve more artistic images. The Venice photoshoot can continue with a couple engagement sessions that can aim at shooting this type of photography specifically.

When and How many pictures will I receive?

How Many? As many pictures as we are able to shoot. Filtering out doubles, almost identical, undesired out of focus, bad framing or body positions, overly underexposed or overexposed, unplanned eyes closed. If conditions permit, a daytime session can produce up to 60 photos/hour, delivered digitally with post processing. Evening session produce a lower picture count due to the more time consuming light conditions. Approximately 40 photos/hour.
When? Up to 2 months depending on the current first in first out workflow. On average approx. 1 month. If you wish to receive everything as fast as possible than we suggest including a 2 week or earlier delivery by selecting Expedient Image delivery at the moment of booking.

What happens in case of rain?

Couple holding an umbrella at Parco del Pincio during a rainy day in RomeIt can be romantic to take pictures in the rain. Especially when turned into black and white images. As the photos usually have a lot of contrast. However, if one does not want to shoot in the rain. Or if it is simply raining too hard. Rescheduling to a mutually agreeable date/time can be done provided that the request for a reschedule or cancellation for rain is sent in at least 1 day before the start of the proposal photography. If it is not possible to reschedule for rain 90% of the deposit payment will be returned to you.

What are the payment options?

In order to book and reserve an advance payment of 30% is needed payable by credit card through PayPal or Stripe. The balance payment is payable in EURO cash to the photographer on the day at the end of service or by PayPal +6% payment transfer fee on the day or on a later date and before final image delivery.

Do you photograph proposals also in other Italian cities?

Any more questions?

Let’s talk about it!

Get in Touch!


We decided to elope in Italy and knew no vendors personally overseas. I found Andrea on Google and liked his style. We booked him from Miami without meeting and we could not have been happier. Aside from Andrea being committed to taking photos you will love, he was also incredibly patient and genuinely kind.


I've worked with many photographers for both personal and professional reasons for years, and Andrea was a genuine pleasure to work with. He was fast to respond, competitively priced, super friendly, and sent us our photos before we even finished our trip. We were on our honeymoon and really wanted to capture it for memories, and Andrea did not disappoint.


We can not say enough good things about Andrea and his photography. My girlfriend became my fiance in Rome and we could not have captured this moment without the help of Andrea and his beautiful photos. He was very professional from start to finish, he contacted me immediately after the booking and let me know the details of the photoshoot and what to expect. The day of the shoot everything was set up as our communication via whatsapp with our photographer Gabrielle was flawless!


I had such a great experience hiring Andrea to photograph my surprise proposal to my then-girlfriend, now-fiancée! The ordering process was effortless and easy too. Andrea was such a professional and is really talented at what he does. I was very impressed with how well he planned every detail out, even suggesting a slightly different time from my initial order request, so that the light would be perfect and the shadows from the nearby trees wouldn’t affect the pictures!


I couldn't not have asked for an easier way to organize a surprise proposal abroad. On top of it all, our pictures and video came out better than we could have imagined. After having selecting the what I would like as part of the proposal package, Andrea was quick to reply and explain how the event would take place. He suggested a few ways to get a hold of him which made communication easy. On the day of the event, the car we had requested through his service was very prompt, clean, and the driver friendly. Everything was followed according to plan, and Andrea captured the moment perfectly. Andrea and Nico (videographer) were funny, friendly, and made the photo session very enjoyable. I would recommend Andrea's photography service again and again. I was more than happy with the whole experience!
