My dear readers, I have a new and fascinating story to tell you. I do believe that most of you know how important for me is to get ready for the photo session. I always get acquainted with the couple and try to go a bit deeper than just taking pictures. I capture precious moments and highlight feelings and emotions. But this couple helped me to see that even spontaneous meeting, when I only know the names and have a picture of how they look like, is extremely interesting. Even in such conditions one can get an amazing surprising engagement photo shooting in Rome in August.
Engagement as a surprise
Let me introduce to you Ricky and Pallavi — a lovely couple from the USA. They came to Rome to tour this amazing city. But there was another plan in Ricky’s mind — to ask his sweetheart the most important question: “Will you?”. With help of his sister he found me as photographer in Rome and asked to make some shoots of them. But Ricky wanted me to be hidden, so that Pallavi didn’t notice me, since engagement was a surprise for her. There were some difficulties on our way to success, but we managed: Ricky received positive answer and I made some lovely pictures.
That special day
Aren’t they super lovely? Sure, they are! I would say that it was pretty a task for me to capture these moments, because it was so sincere and lovely. But I’m a professional wedding and engagement photographer and have not just observe, but also to make shoots.
After the challenge was accepted Pallavi started to phone her relatives and friends in order to share this amazing news. She was on the seventh heaven. She just got engaged in Rome with her beloved man, who did an amazing surprise for her.
The only thing Ricky had to do was to cover her with an umbrella, since that August day it was raining heavily in Rome.
And some more liquid to the atmosphere added Pallavi. She was the happiest person in the whole universe and had the right to cry and to do whatever she liked. That a huge surprise and she got engaged.
The whole event took place in one of my favourite places in Rome — Villa Borghese. Even that August rain didn’t spoil the mood of the couple. They were engaged and happy! When finally we introduced each other, together we decided to walk a bit around the city in order to make this story about surprising engagement in Rome complete.
And some more photo calls with congratulations from India and the US.
I’m awfully happy that our roads crossed with, Ricky and Pallavi. You are a lovely couple and I wish you all the best in your family life. I hope that my photo shooting will always remind you of surprising engagement you had in Rome. Hope to see you soon in some other locations in Italy!
