If you are looking for a special photo session in Rome, look no further. This is not your typical Airbnb photoshoot, it's more than that. Maria & Ivan are wonderful hosts, and very easy to get along. It's a quite unique technique that requires special settings and set-up, and Maria handles all of this smoothly, while making you feel comfortable. Again, highly recommend this experience.

This was a phenomenal experience! Maria is well knowledgable and personable, taking the time to explain the process, work out different poses and coordinate light sources and colors with what you're wearing.

We are so happy we met Maria for this magical photo shoot. She’s a very talented and professional photographer, who makes it easy to feel relaxed and also have fun. Maria was very good at making it feel natural and easy to pose for great photos, and she even taught us the light painting technique so we could participate in the process too. She was also very friendly and gave us great advise on restaurants and bars to visit in different neighborhoods. Having a photo shoot with Maria is a must for your visit to Rome — we highly recommend it.

It was an Amazing experience. Unfortunately it was rainy, so I had a photo shooting in the studio. Maria arranged fabrics and props for my dress. She sent me edited photo and they were excellent!! Bring your favorite dress and get your photo of the most beautiful moment.

It was the best experience I had in Rome! Maria is very passionate about light painting and photography and knows how to engage her models into the process. And she also delivers such a magnificent photos in a very short time! We met in a little cafe near Circus Maximus where Maria navigated me via WhatsApp. We had a cup of coffee and a quick chat about who we are and where we come from and then we went to the open space with limited lighting near Circus Maximus to do our photo painting. I loved the experience. It was very easy to follow her instructions and she listened very carefully what ideas I had in mind. I'm very pleased that I had this experience and such a positive encounter in Rome but I also very satisfied with photos which were produced. She delivered them in less than 2 days and I got the preview for some of them the night I had an experience. I highly recommend Maria and her experience and suggest you to book her NOW! You won't regret!
