Stefania & Daniele’s Paparazzi and Graffiti Engagement Session


Today I’m delighted to share with you a refreshingly unique lifestyle engagement. Lovebirds Stefania and Daniele went on a discreet coffee date and ended up being “stalked” by paparazzi in the process! 🙂

I love the concept of this photo shoot, photographed in a wine bar in Rome, Italy — which just so happens to be the home of the word “paparazzi”! — and we have talented duo Alfredo and Luciana of Fibre di Luce to thank for making this feature possible. (You might remember them from the gypsy chic bridal shoot I featured sometime ago). Lu shares a few details about the day:

A rainy morning, a romantic brunch at a bar opened only for you, and a couple looking for some privacy… We played a “paparazzi” game with Stefania amd Daniele who portrayed their “undercover celebrities” roles perfectly. The funniest thing was seeing people stopping by and wondering: “who the hell are they?” 🙂

I’m partial to photojournalistic style imagery so I really love the genuine mood of this shoot! And guess what, we get to meet the couple too. Here’s the beautiful Stefania to tell us more about herself and Daniele:

We both come from faithful families and we belong to the International Evangelical Church of Rome. We met years ago at a summer camp organized by our church in Arezzo (Tuscany). Initially we became friends and, between jokes and complicity, a strange feeling came over both of us. After the camp, we went to sea in two different places but by chance not so distant from one another. On a lucky series of coincidences, I extended my stay a few days more and during those days we discovered that we were made for each other!

We’ve been together for almost 7 years and despite having two completely different characters, we attract like a magnet, maybe just for our differences, or maybe because love and faith make us quite similar. We live our story as a love / hate story, and we’re proud about that.

We’re not done yet, here’s more eye candy for you! After the coffee shop date, the couple strolled under a bridge nearby that had a wall filled with graffiti. According to Lu, the graffiti are constantly being replaced by new ones but by some stroke of luck, the doodles that day just happened to match the couple’s outfits (and wedding color motif — tiffany blue!) Awesome coincidence you guys!

It hasn’t all been roses for our lovely couple but fortunately they managed to face adversity together…

A very nice thing is how we faced very harsh trials together and overcame them. Daniele had a disease. Without being too detailed, he risked his life on a hospital bed and has been sick for years. Thank God, he’s now ok: his disease is chronic but harmless.

We both have upcoming graduations. He has a job, I’m finishing my masters, our parents love us and will help us with our wedding that, even if on a limited budget, will be awesome simply because it will be OUR wedding!

(I’m very happy to learn that things are going well for Stefania and Daniele!)
