I’m back from my whirlwind trip, and kind of wishing I was still there. The food, the wine, the gelato, the view, the people, the gelato…Oops! I already said that, but to me it is worth repeating, LOL!
While I was in Rome, I toured many historic locations and worked with two wedding photographers for not one, but two wedding style shoots! What an amazing experience that I would gladly do over again and again. I met some very talented vendors that I would gladly work with again, in a heartbeat!
Something that caught my attention was how the locals responded to our team for the wedding photos all around the city. They would stick their heads out of their windows, come down from their apartments to get a better view, patiently wait for us to finish our photos before driving through, and offering to be in the photos with our lovely brides (models). If you have ever been to Rome, you know this is no small feat! Most drivers have race car training as part of getting their license, I believe. 🙂
Both photographers were so happy to have a fun and a little bit ‘whacky’ type of photo-shoot. Not to mention, they both had a fantastically clever and whacky side to them, too.

Thank you both for being so wonderful and easy to work with 🙂
Both companies had fantastic ideas, and found us great locations to have our photo-shoots in Rome.
Tip: Make sure to bring a comfy pair of shoes, because there are so many amazing spots to get photos and you don’t want to miss out. We ended up buying our Bride (model) a pair of flip flops in a nearby piazza, because we started in one area, and happily ended up about an hour’s walk away. There are also tons of places to buy water or pop to cool down.
