Elliot chose Rome for his proposal, and in particular the Orange Garden at sunset. No wonder. The view is both magnificent and breathtaking, as you can see the Dome of the Saint Peter's in the background. Not to mention the beautiful paleochristian basilica that is adjaicent to the garden. Elliot was absolutely certain that his Isabelle would love it. And he was right. In fact, they'd spent the better part of the afternoon exploring the Aventine Hill, including the famous keyhole, from which you can see the Vatican.
Once the couple arrived at the garden, I surreptitiously followed them everywhere they went, until, finally, Elliot picked a place for his proposal to Isabelle. It went beautifully, so much so, we decided not to go for the re-enactment photos. We all liked the pictures so we decided to carry on and get some close-ups of the dazzling ring and continue shooting until the garden closed. We wrapped up our photo shoot with a few shots just outside the entrance, next to a very old fountain.
The Orange Garden at sunset is one of the most iconic locations in the Eternal City
I contacted Luca in the summer of last year as myself and my fiance-to-be were planning a trip to Rome - I decided it would be the perfect time for a surprise proposal. If you are anything like me, you are looking through reviews eagerly for reassurance that you have chosen the right man/woman for such an important job. All I can tell you is that I would have absolutely no qualms about recommending Luca to anybody in the same position as I was for this once-in-a-lifetime moment. From the moment I first contacted Luca, he was warm and friendly, understanding, reassuring and full of advice and experience to help guide you. Luca does not shape your proposal or eliminate your ideas - instead taking the time to listen to you/get to know you, and in turn helping to enhance them so that the moment is everything you imagined. Before the trip, Luca took the time to facetime me - again offering reassurance and helpful tips, as well as giving me all the information I needed to feel anxiety-free. I received email follow ups and the comfort that he was at the other end of the phone whenever needed. On the day, he knew exactly how much contact to make and was discreet and professional - allowing us to have our moment before gradually meeting us to take any pictures we wanted with his input and advice. The follow up and after care was exemplary and I couldn't fault the entire experience. Although lengthy, my review is simple - look no further, Luca is your man! Thank you again.
