Brian’s Proposal & Engagement to Mandy in Rome via Philadelphia

Uncategorized, Wedding

Adorable story.
Brian has been planning his proposal to his beloved for many months. And was super careful to every detail. He wanted a fountain. Rome Architecture. At the same time, also wanted a place which was intimate to propose.Together we found his ideal location. He did his homework.

Three years ago they both met at a bar in Philadelphia. Their second date was at Starbucks (how American is that haha). There was a strong attraction between one another but their relationship didn’t take off until a few months later.

Last year they went to Hawaii, and everyone thought Brian would propose there. But, no he saved it for Rome.

Brian proposed. Mandy say YES with every cell in her body πŸ˜‰

I hid in my paparazzi uniform & the camera (300 mm lens) and Brian proposed at the “strategic” location we planned ahead. At 6:15 pm.

Mandy was totally surprised about the whole proposal (as you can see by the images below & photographs don’t like…)

After the proposal, I came out of cover we went around Rome and took more photographs… They didn’t walk, they floated a meter above ground throughout the whole e-session.

I loved their double hugs. A simple hug wasn’t enough. No a double hug. Each and every time. Too cute.


  • Very nice pictures πŸ™‚

    Hi! My fiancee and I will be in Rome throughout the month of November. We would love for Rochelle to do a session of engagement photos! We especially love the setting of the Amore Blog album “Brian’s Proposal & Engagement to Mandy in Rome via Philadelphia.” What was this location? We’d love to do it in the same place.

    Please let me know when Rochelle is available in November and we can schedule from there. Thanks!
