Mehdi + Lara - Proposal by the sea and rome photo-session

A marriage proposal is different anytime. Maybe you prefer a classic location or an uncommon one. An elegant street, a romantic viewpoint, an old palace, a restaurant, a lake or why not the sea. Living in Rome means that the most common requests are about the famous landmarks...Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Pincio and many more. But Mehdi, a young guy from Paris, contacted me asking for a romantic seaside location, not too crowdy and not so far from the Ethernal City. Ok! I have the right solution for you! The name of the place is Ostia, a small town on the sea, very close to Rome :) In a pandemic period, nothing is easy to plan...but if you want it, everything is possible! This time I was an italian tourist in disguise with a medium telephoto lens, ready to shoot. Not easy to confirm the spot because some people were around....but WhatsApp and the GPS (thank you Google Maps!) helped me a lot to communicate in real-time. Trembling hands (mine) I was ready to start. And Medhi too! Very fast and firm this fantastic guy proposed himself to his wonderful Lara after few minutes there....and wow! What a moment...Intense, romantic, real. And the session went on the day after in Rome, for a romantic and in nature surprise proposal plus a top photo-session in the most beautiful city in the world....Rome! Thank you guys! See you soon:)))

p.s. For the photographers: I'm using for a while the new Canon R mirrorless system and I have to say it is superb. Fantastic auto focus on the eye, tracking and very good image quality. Ok, reflex system is all but dead...
