My dear readers, I have a new and fascinating story to tell you. I do believe that most of you know how important for me is to get ready for the photo session. I always get acquainted with the couple and try to go a bit deeper than just taking pictures. I capture precious moments and highlight feelings and emotions. But this couple helped me to see that even spontaneous meeting, when I only know the names and have a picture of how they look like, is extremely interesting. Even in such conditions one can get an amazing surprising engagement photo shooting in Rome in August.

Engagement as a surprise

Let me introduce to you Ricky and Pallavi — a lovely couple from the USA. They came to Rome to tour this amazing city. But there was another plan in Ricky’s mind — to ask his sweetheart the most important question: “Will you?”. With help of his sister he found me as photographer in Rome and asked to make some shoots of them. But Ricky wanted me to be hidden, so that Pallavi didn’t notice me, since engagement was a surprise for her. There were some difficulties on our way to success, but we managed: Ricky received positive answer and I made some lovely pictures.

Engagement in Rome Ricky and Pallavi

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 the challenge was accepted Pallavi started to phone her relatives and friends in order to share this amazing news. She was on the seventh heaven. She just got engaged in Rome with her beloved man, who did an amazing 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 to do whatever she liked. That a huge surprise and she got engaged.

Villa Borghese

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

I’m awfully happy that our roads crossed with, Ricky and Pallavi. You are a lovely couple and I wish you all the best in your family life. I hope that my photo shooting will always remind you of surprising engagement you had in Rome. Hope to see you soon in some other locations in Italy!

Sincerely, Artur

    As a woman, you imagine your proposal to be nothing short of magical. I never thought just how magical, until we landed in Rome and everything in my life changed within a few hours. These photos not only capture every minute of my emotion from shocked to surprised to crying to love — but when I've shown the blog post to people who don't know me that well, they share in my opinion of how AMAZING this moment was for Ricky & I and more importantly how it made them feel as though they were there with us witnessing the entire thing.

    I couldn't have asked for a more perfect location, a perfect proposal, a perfect photographer and ofcourse a perfect fiance.

    Thank you, Artur — you really perfected this memory for us.

    Love Always,
    Pallavi & Ricky
