Rome is a unique and breathtaking city.
Not only because of the beauty of its landmarks, but also because of the sheer number of landmarks it actually has!
Due to this incredible richness of places and the enormous variety of them, doing a photo tour in Rome can never be the same tour twice.
A good Vacation Photographer like the Photographers here at Rome Vacation Photographer will take you through unexpected and diverse routes every time….
As a Roman Photographer and a Tour Guide I pride myself in knowing the Eternal City very well, and I can easily say that the possibilities for Photo shoots in Rome are pretty much endless.
Even if one visits only the main landmarks of the city, the possibilities of how to get from one to the other is limitless, and all of them amazing.
However, here is a short list of some of the best places in Rome to be photographed in, backdrops to your happy moments that will make your memories absolutely unforgettable and Eternal, just like Rome is:
5. The Colosseum
Of course of all the major landmarks of the City, the Colosseum is probably the most famous.
It truly has come to symbolize, more than any other surviving archeological site throughout what used to be the enormous Roman Empire, the Roman Empire itself.
The possibilities around this site are endless, whether you want to lean on its walls, have it totally inside the shot, or use just a slice of it as a background, the Colosseum always looks impeccable in its might and elegance.
4. St. Peter’s Square
Absolutely elegant, grandiose and incredibly iconic, St. Peter’s Square has Michelangelo’s amazing Dome, Carlo Maderno’s beautiful facade and Bernini’s romantic colonnade all in one swooping backdrop.
What could you ask for more? These absolute geniuses of the Renaissance and the baroque era, give their best to make this place almost unsurpassable.
Also the possibilities here are endless.
A photo in between Bernini’s beautiful colonnade, symbolizing the embrace of the mother church to it’s pilgrims, is truly unique.
The Church as a backdrop, grandiose and also extremely elegant.
As a Honeymoon photographer this place is perfect for pre-wedding photography, honeymoon photography and for couples and lovers in our Romantic city.
3. Piazza Navona
Elegant, romantic, sacred and profane, lively and colourful.
Piazza Navona has it all!
It’s unique shape allows for a great variety of photographs and for innumerable backdrops: The Fountains, the Church of St. Agnes, the Painters, the huge statues in the Fountain of the Four Rivers, the Piazza as a whole as a backdrop and of course the street artists and the huge variety of going-ons by day and its beautiful, romantic clam in the evenings.
A Photo Shoot in Rome and the life of a Vacation Photographer is made easy by such a unique place.
2. The cobble-stoned alleys
Rome is filled with beautiful, winding, quiet, and colourful medieval alleys.
All of them paved with cobblestones, and where all the buildings are in various pastel colours, small fountains, plants, beautiful balconies and unexpected details on the buildings along these winding alleys.
Every building in Rome is different from the other and they are often a mish-mash of Rome’s 2700 year old history, so look up and you will find the enormous variety that this city is made up of, its beautiful mosaic of centuries of architecture.
A Photo-shoot in Rome is never complete without these unexpected and often hidden corners of the city.
Real gems awaiting to be discovered as beautiful backdrops to your Vacation Photographs.
1. The Trevi Fountain
The Trevi Fountain is the biggest and most spectacular fountain you will ever see.
3 Coins In The Fountain and La Dolce Vita are just two the many films which have been engraced by the beauty of this Baroque Landmark.
Wedding Photography, Pre Wedding Photography, Honeymoon Photography or Secret Proposals cannot skip this most romantic of locations.
A Roman Photographer will always come to the Trevi Fountain but he must know when to come…
The fountain is huge, but the location is tight and the crowds are huge and so a Vacation Photographer must know when to come.
Very Early in the morning, is the time to have it all for yourselves and so any morning photographic tour of the city which includes the Trevi Fountain, must start from here.
