Leila and John came to Rome in June to celebrate the beginning of their family life. They started their honeymoon in Denver (USA). They made a long way to see the Eternal City, try authentic Italian food, and spend a lovely mooring in my company — a 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 Vatican City

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.
Photos next to the Bernini Colonnade always turn out very stylish, especially in classic black and white format.
And the pictures against the background of St. Peter’s Cathedral are more like tourist postcards. Do you want the same for yourself?
About 500 meters far from the main square of the Vatican, one finds another interesting historical object, which is the Castel Sant’Angelo. Following a wide street, we made our way in its direction—another set of fantastic morning pictures we made with a view over the river of Rome – Tiber.
Navona Square is just for us.
Every time I come to Navona Square (Piazza Navona) with my beloved clients, I feel inspired to show them this incredible 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.
Another important and, as a result, trendy place in Rome is the Pantheon.
During the day and till late at night, the fountain in front of the Pantheon entrance and restaurants are full of people. The morning is the only moment to see this fascinating construction in a calm atmosphere. That is why our honeymoon photo shooting in Rome continued there.
All Americans visiting Rome have Spanish steps as one of the first places on the list of must-see places. Together with my colleague and assistant Vladimir, we spent countless hours explaining to couples that it is impossible to take excellent 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.
In June, the temperature in Rome is about +25 +30 by 10 in the morning, so it is already hot. To continue the honeymoon shooting, we spent some minutes in shadow.
That was the beginning of a 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 inspire you to make something unique.
Sincerely yours, Artur and Vladimir
