Leila and John came to Rome in June to celebrate the beginning of their family life. They started the honeymoon from Denver and made a long way to see the Eternal City, to try real Italian food and of course to spend a lovely mooring in company of mine — professional wedding photographer in Rome.
As usually in summer we began the shooting quite early in the morning — it was 6 a.m. The first place where we went was Vatican and St. Peter’s square.

The honeymoon for my new american friends started with a golden dawn in Rome. That magic morning the sun was very softly making the ambiance of the place (we were in Vatican at this time) very special. And at this very moment we were absolutely alone at the entrance of the St. Peter’s Basilica, which seems unreal for most of people who love to sleep.
About 500 meters far from the main square of Vatican one finds another interesting historical object, which is the Castel Sant’Angelo. Following a wide street we made our way to its direction. Another set of fantastic morning pictures we made with a view over the river of Rome – Tiber.
Every time I come to Navona Square (Piazza Navona) with my couples I feel so inspired to be able to show them this great beauty of Rome with no crowds and mess around. It is so important to take such a chance to enjoy the masterpieces of architecture in silence. These are the very moments when one can feel and admire the city.
The Pantheon in Rome
Another very important and as a result very popular place of Rome is the Pantheon. During the day and till late at night the fountain in front of the entrance to the Pantheon and restaurants around are totally full of people. The only moment to see this fascinating construction in calm atmosphere is the morning. That is why our honeymoon photo shooting in Rome continued there.
All americans visiting Rome have Spanish steps as one of the first places in the list of must see places. Together with my colleague and assistant Vladimir we spent countless hours explaining to couples the fact that it is impossible to take nice engagement or pre-wedding photos in Spanish steps during the day and even in the evening. After 9 in the morning it is already crowded.
Every our client is our friend and it is really important to have a picture for good memory. Look at this photo taken in one of the best panoramic views of Rome. Leila and john you are in my heart for good!
In many of the shootings from Rome I’ve made there is information and pictures from Villa Borghese, which a very popular location for engagement, wedding or honeymoon sessions. And every shooting I try to make unique, finding new locations and playing with the light.
While Leila and my assistant Yana were discussing the modern tendencies of fashion, me and John found a new nice spot to take a picture.
The temperature in Rome in June is about +25 +30 by 10 in the mooning, so it was already hot. To continue the honeymoon shooting we spent some minutes in shadow.
That was the beginning of honeymoon in Italy for Leila and John: a beautiful photo shooting in Rome. What is your plan for such a session? I sincerely hope that this story and photos will inspire you to make something amazing.
Sincerely yours, Artur and Vladimir
