April Engagement Photo shooting in Rome – Serena and Ryan

English Speaking Wedding Photographer in Rome

April in Rome is fantastic and very beautiful time for a wedding photo shooting. The sun is warm, gardens are in flowers, spring atmosphere is everywhere. So, if you are planning a trip to Italy in early spring, I strongly encourage you to consider having a romantic photo shoot with professional photographer in Rome in April.

Today we have a very lovely couple from Singapore. Serena and Ryan set off for a Euro trip long before their marriage. This is a particular thing that I noticed among Asia couples. They come together to new countries and cities, willing to be eye to eye. But also there is another fundamental reason for such a trip. Since Singapore is quite a modern city, it is impossible to find any narrow romantic streets or ancient monuments. So these couples always bring to photo shootings in Rome and other European cities at least one gown and a suit, even though they only would like to get engaged. Afterward, these pictures are shown to all the guests at the wedding party.

Pre wedding trip to Europe from Singapore

My new friends arrived from Singapore in Italy in April. I must say that this month is one of the best of the year for shooting with a professional photographer in Rome. April weather in Rome is relatively mild, even a bit chilly, and generally, nature wakes up after winter. Unique and fantastic atmosphere for an engagement shooting.

After a lengthy discussion between my manager Vladimir and the couple, we decided to split the shooting into two parts: morning and evening. It is not an invention but regular practice of mine. Thus the couple has more chances to enjoy the vast city within one day and not get tired. Moreover, as a final result, they receive daylight wedding pictures from Rome and evening ones.

Spring in Italy

To plunge into the spring Rome atmosphere, I suggest your careful reading of the article and looking through the engagement photos. This is the first morning part of the romantic pre-wedding love story for Serena and Ryan in Rome. We started with some pictures of the Vatican.



Though it was early morning, we could not be there for too long since the guards do not allow taking photos in the Vatican in front of St. Peter’s Cathedral. Therefore we went a bit farther from the main attraction and took some gorgeous pictures from a distance.

Castel Sant’Angelo

In case you are planning you trip around Roman most popular places of interest, my sincere recommendation is to proceed right after Vatican to Castel Sant’Angelo. These two amazing pieces of architecture are linked to each other by mean of underpasses. Because in case of danger the Pop had to move as soon as possible from Vatican to the castle, which should protect him from any possible danger. That is what the legend says. But when you stay in front of the Castle, you do feel that these walls can really protect.

Trevi fountain in Rome

From something huge and even aggressive, we can contribute to artistic and even theatrical. What is a must for any tourist in Rome? Right you are if you say every tourist has to make a wish and go through a coin into the famous fountain de Trevi. So, of course, Serena and Ryan followed the tradition.

For you to know: every year the local authorities pick up from the fountain about 3 millions of Euros. This is quite a budget I should say. Therefore one can see a police car by the fountain guarding the place day and night.

Spanish Steps

Another famous attraction- Spanish Steps – is around the corner from the fountain. This is one of the most romantic venues in Rome. Believe me, if you take your girlfriend to the steps, she will surely be yours. So don’t forget to mark the place on your map or book me as a professional engagement photographer in Rome to show you the area and take some fantastic photos.

Spanish Steps

There is one of the most famous hotels in Rome located by Spanish steps. It is Hassler five star hotel. It has a fantastic view that opens from the veranda. I sincerely recommend you to consider this variant of staying in Rome. Several of my couples booked their rooms in Hassler. For instance Risa and Tatsya from Japan were vey pleased with the service and of corse with a fantastic panoramic view from the window.

But let’s get back to our couple. The following place we had on the route was Pinco Gardens above Piazza del Popolo or Pincian Hill.

Villa Borghese gardens open a fantastic, spectacular view of the city. I’ve been there hundreds of times, but every time was the first one. My heart soars every time I’m here.
