Trevi Fountain (aka Fontana di Trevi) is an iconic, must-see attraction, and one of the first things people think of when they think of Rome. The turquoise blue water with the marble stone creates a beautiful backdrop for your photos. It’s the perfect start to your day of exploring Rome. There’s so much to do in this beautiful city! These Italy engagement photos reaffirmed my love for exploring a beautiful new place, and I think it’s important to document your adventures!
Because Trevi Fountain is super busy, it required a bit of maneuvering to avoid tourists in my photos. Due to its popularity, it’s very crowded with tourists, even at first light, but it’s still worth visiting at least once. But there’s another reason why it looks so empty here. So y’know how after taking a million photos, everyone throws a coin into the Trevi fountain to make a wish?
On this morning, the city folks came by to clean and vacuum up all the coins in the fountain so everyone had to wait. An estimated 3,000 euros are thrown in here every day and donated. 🤯 I guess the fountain is partially supported and buoyed by people’s hopes and dreams from around the world! Mind-boggling to think that this fountain has been serving Rome for over 400 years! 🤯
If you’re planning an adventure in Rome and want photos together while you’re touring someplace epic, I’m your girl! I’d want to spend at least half a day with you capturing beautiful, romantic memories of you and your honey, and show you iconic photo spots around the city.
I love helping couples plan their adventure to suit their personalities and bucketlist places! Italy has easily become one of my most favorite places to travel to and stolen a pizza my heart. I want you to feel the same 😉
Your Italy engagement photos should be more than just a photoshoot.
You deserve an unforgettable experience that you’ll remember forever.
Allow me to be your photographer guide, whether you’re eloping in Italy, doing your pre-wedding shoot, on your honeymoon, celebrating your anniversary, or just enjoying a vacation with the person you love most.
What does an Italy adventure photoshoot look like?
Italy adventure half-day itinerary:
- early morning shoot at Trevi fountain before it gets really crowded,
- a second shoot at the Pantheon,
- then head over to a beautiful garden villa, Villa Borghese, for a third morning shoot,
- then stop by an Italian pizza/pasta place for lunch and get some wine in celebration. (Because who doesn’t want to get pizza and wine in Italy?!)
Italy adventure full-day or multi-day itinerary:
- early morning shoot at Trevi fountain,
- document you doing a pasta-making or bread-baking class, enjoying live music on the Spanish steps, or or anything that sounds like a fun, meaningful time with your love. If you’re art enthusiasts, we can have a museum day at the Vatican Museum and the Borghese Gallery and get some jaw-dropping photos of the staircase, architecture, sculptures, and paintings.
Why do an Italy elopement or adventure?
Planning a touring adventure photoshoot while in Italy is something I highly recommend to all couples!
A lot of these iconic tourists locations get extremely busy, so it’s important to pick and choose which ones you want to get the best photos possible! When you have a photographer acting as a tour guide, they’re familiar with the locations and know where to go and when. (Ahem, that’s me!) You’ll save yourself tons of time, and you’ll also get to experience the city in a different light, instead of being wandering tourists on your own.
When in Rome – if you’re looking for the best time for photos, early morning is when the rest of the city is sleeping!
You can visit different spots each morning for the kind of clean iconic photos you see on postcards. Early birds get the worms! Another thing to keep in mind is travel time between locations. When you’re in the middle of the day, it takes twice as long to jet around town, so the earlier you can get out, the better.
You deserve more than a standard one hour photoshoot during your travels! Your memories deserve to be documented while you explore together. Whether you do a half-day, full-day, or multi-day experience, it’ll be so much fun experiencing Rome like a local and taking in all of the beautiful photo spots.
