Family photographу in Rome English Speaking Wedding Photographer in Rome

After the morning pre-wedding photo shoot in Rome with Holly and Jordan, we met in Villa Borghese with her family: mother and brothers Kolt and Dillan. I hope you remember that this July morning was excellent – a short storm frightened all the tourists, and we were alone in the city, enjoying its beauty.

As a reward for our fearlessness and optimism we were alone at a viewing point of Pincio Hill at 9 a.m. Moreover mother Nature gave us an amazing gift! To say honestly, I’ve seen such light only a couple of times in my life, and those who love to sleep till midday will never see it.

Holly’s mother admitted that it was their first family photo shoot in the past 10 years. So, unfortunately, they haven’t had an opportunity to take photos of them, neither in their native Dallas (Texas, USA) nor in any other country where they happened to be.
