A wedding proposal in Rome

By 6 April 2012February 2nd, 2020Proposal, Rome, Trevi

Photographed in secret

The meeting point was at the entrance of the Benetton store in Piazza Fontana di Trevi in Rome Italy. We never met before but we had a plan exchanged via e-mail. When I saw Mark we found a silent understanding and headed down to the water fountain where he would propose to Ashlyn. It was not hard for me to pretend to be one of many tourist photographers with a camera. So I led them to a good spot with nice lighting and set up. Mark waited for some elbow room and when he was ready the proposal began and I started to photograph. Ashlyn was so surprised!

The engagement session

The rest was history. We walked down to Piazza di Spagna finding some nice picture opportunities. The off to Parco del Pincio to continue wit some more engagement photos. Then a nice walk downhill to reach Piazza del Popolo where we would be able to find a taxi. Our lar stop was the Roman Coliseum in all its splendor. Thank you for allowing me to photograph this very special moment. I wish you all the best!
