Surprise Marriage Proposal in Rome: Pallavi and Ricky

English Speaking Wedding Photographer in Rome

My dear readers, I have a new and fascinating story to tell you. Most of you know how important it is for me to prepare for the photo session. I always get acquainted with the couple and try to go deeper than just taking pictures. I capture precious moments and highlight feelings and emotions.

But this couple helped me see that even a spontaneous meeting is exciting when I only know the names and have a picture of what they look like. In August, even in such conditions, one can get a fantastic surprise proposal engagement photo shooting in Rome!

Engagement Proposal as a Surprise

Let me introduce Ricky and Pallavi — a lovely couple from the USA. They came to Rome to tour this fantastic city. But Ricky had another plan — to ask his sweetheart the most essential question: “Will you?”.
So with the help of his sister, he found me as a photographer in Rome and asked to take some shots of them. But Ricky wanted me hidden so that Pallavi didn’t notice me since the engagement surprised her. There were some difficulties on our way to success, but we managed: Ricky received a positive answer, and I took 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 accepting the challenge, Pallavi started to phone her relatives and friends to share this fantastic news. She was in the seventh heaven. She had just got engaged in Rome with her beloved man, who did a tremendous 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 do whatever she liked. What a huge surprise, and she got engaged.

Photoshoot at Villa Borghese after Surprise Proposal

The event occurred in one of my favorite places in Rome — Villa Borghese. Even that August rain didn’t spoil the mood of the couple. They were engaged and happy! When we finally introduced each other, together we decided to walk a bit around the city in order to make this story about a surprising engagement in Rome complete.
