Max wanted to propose at a special location, and wanted to have tangible memories of something very dear to him. We met under the equestrian statue in the square and after making our acquaintance we took started shooting under the colonnade. Capitol Hill is indeed very popular because it offers many wonderful opportunites for taking romantic and intimate couple portraits. From the arcade we made our way to one of the beautiful staircases where I took of few shots of them in the distance. The Forum Overlook, which was next, is indeed the highlight of it all. Nadiya and Max were indeed smitten with the fantastic view and dispite the multitude
of tourists that the location attracts, we managed to take a few kissing shots with the Colosseum in the far background. Time really flies when you're having fun and you're enjoying yourself. The sun was approaching the horizon and I wanted to take them to the beautiful Terrazza Caffarelli, where Max was to pop the question. This was a surprise proposal after all so Max and I had already agreed on all our signalling and when we both were ready, he kneeled down and proposed. It was a gift for me to witness and record Nadiya and Max's proposal. After our goodbyes, I felt reconciled with with world for at least till the following morning.
It should come as no surprise to that more and more couples are coming to Rome for their engagements or surprise proposals. They all look for iconic, stylish, elegant and strong portrait photography.

We had much luck to meet Luca. Great professional, artist and an amazing person. Luca also was there for my engagement proposal. He found a really great spot for the occasion and let me take my time with it. So can't find enough words to thank Luca. Really great memories!
