When sharing the moment in which you bravely uttered the words, “Will you marry me?” it helps to have a set of professionally taken photographs with the Roman Colosseum positioned perfectly behind you…
…At least that is what Mike decided while planning this unforgettable holiday to Italy.
Rome has become synonymous with Romance. Perhaps it is the ancient ruins that conjure up images of a love that stands the test of time. Or maybe it is the sheer magnitude of its most famous structures that reflect the ever expanding nature of everlasting love. Mike was not sure what first attracted him to Rome, but he knew that proposing alongside the Colosseum would be picture perfect.
Arriving at the site, the ring in his back pocket and his girlfriend’s hand in his, Mike was a ball of nerves. It was a gorgeously warm day in Italy’s capital and the Colosseum was more magnificent than he could have imagined.
With a professional engagement photographer waiting to capture the proposal, Mike could not have planned it any better.

A Colossal Commitment
As his girlfriend stood in awe of the sheer magnitude of the Colosseum, the midday sun peeking through the elaborate arches, Mike knew the moment was right. He took out the box and opened it as he lowered onto one knee.
The ring sparkled, and before Mike could say a word, his girlfriend gasped, her eyes growing wide. Her reaction was enough to place a bright smile across his face and he asked the million dollar question, “Will you marry me?”
There were tears, a few giggles, and finally the much anticipated, “YES!”
The newly engaged couple were able to completely immerse themselves in the moment as Ozge, our local paparazzi proposal photographer, captured every smile, tear, and warm embrace. The light reflected a rustic pink off of the Colosseum, which Ozge used to enhance the romantic feel of each picture.
Our vacation photographer had suggested a time and place that allowed for the proposal to be intimate and fabulously romantic despite the number of tourists walking through the heart of Rome.
After a long embrace, and once all the tears were wiped away, Mike introduced his fiancé to Ozge who was then able to take a close-up photo of the dazzling ring. Mike steadied his fiancé’s hand as she trembled with glee.
Picture Perfect Moments
In an area of lush green vines, Ozge was able to create a cosy Eden-like atmosphere. The couple soaked in the sun rays and shared a kiss. Mike could not stop beaming at his fiancé, proud that he had managed to surprise her on their romantic holiday.
Italy was now an integral part of their story. And this is definitely a story they will enjoy telling, and retelling for years.
Thanks to Ozge’s professional photographs, the memory of this romantic proposal is forever preserved. Just like the ruins are admired in Rome today, so too will these photos be admired by all their friends and family for generations to come.
The perfect way to cherish the moment in which they made a commitment to each other alongside the great Roman Colosseum.
