Castel Sant’Angelo with Shoot My Travel

42

Earlier this year, I read about an article that said that you can now “pack a photographer with you to your trips”. At that time, it seemed sooo ridiculous but funny because it was EXACTLY something I would spend for. hahaha! I had my first “pack a photographer” experience in Japan, and recently, in Rome! It’s become my favorite thing to do on trips, I can no longer imagine having a trip without an SMT experience!

How Does it Work?

It’s so easy. First you head to their website, click your travel destination, fill out the form, and wait for a confirmation. Soon, you will be able to get in contact with your chosen photohrapher and from there, you decide on a photoshoot route. It’s amazing because they have over 100+ destinations with super talented SMT photographers.

Shoot Preparation

On my recent trip to Italy, I decided to pick Rome as the city for my photoshoot just because it’s such a huge city and there are so many places and things to see! I got in contact with my photgrapher, Dmitri over email. I loved corresponding with him because he was very interactive when it came to picking out a trip route. I sent him my travel itinerary and he then gave me THREE trip options with comments for each. It was very helpful and I really appreciated the effort because I was about to have a once-in-a-lifetime photoshoot in the city of my dreams. I’m dividing this blog experience into two posts, the first one focusing on our first location: Castel Sant’Angelo.

I asked Dmitri if I should prepare two outfits just in case we had enough time to shoot both of them. Dmitri was such a sport and told me to go for it! I did my own hair and makeup and I tried to pick out outfits that were comfortable to move around in but of course, they also had to be stylish. ;)

Location

Why Castel Sant’Angelo? Because Dmitri said it had one of his favorite views of Rome. I’m a sucker for views so I decided to trust Dmitri and go for his suggestion. To give you a short background, Castel Sant’Angelo was built as a Mausoleum for the Emperor Hadrian, then it turned into a Papal Fortress. Today, it serves as a museum and houses paintings, sculptures, military memorabilia and medieval firearms.

Enough talking for now! I’ll go ahead and let the photos work their magic.
