Only a true romantic-at-heart could pick Rome to celebrate his partner's birthday as well as propose to his future-wife-to-be. Parm was looking for a very special location to propose to Manni, easy enough to reach with their beautiful 3½ daughter Arya. The Pincio Gardens with its beautiful Terrazza on Viale del Belvedere, have proven to be ideal, for its beautiful scenary, and because it's a 5-minute walk from the iconic Spanish Steps and Piazza di Spagna, even with a pram. The idea was to hide a Surprise Proposal in a Family Photo shoot in Rome. Manni, Parm, Arya and I met in Piazza di Spagna, outside Babington's Tea Room, next to the Spanish Steps. After making their acquiantance, I shot a few pictures next to the famous Barcaccia fountain and after that we climbed the Spanish Steps for some more iconic images. An hour into the photo shoot, as the golden hour was approaching, we moved to the Terrazza in Viale del Belvedere where Parm finally proposed to Manni, with Rome as a beautiful backdrop. Proposals are always very emotional and this one was no different. Beautiful shots of raw emotions followed. As the sun was approaching the horizon, we moved to the Pincio Gardens for some more iconic shots with Saint Peter's dome in the background. We decided to wrap up this beautiful hidden proposal photoshoot on the Spanish Steps using Piazza di Spagna as background lit by the warm street lights.
The Pincio Gardens with its beautiful and Terrazza Belvedere is propably the most romantic spot for a surprise proposal to rembember.
