Today’s destination engagement shoot, is cool, classic, fun and head over heels romantic.

We just love the idea of combining a post-proposal trip with an engagement shoot, and chic couple, Ben & Lindsay, picked the perfect location in Villa Borghese in Rome.

And who better to capture it, in her signature intimate style, than Teresa Carnuccio of In Love In Italy Photography.

Lindsay, a model, and Ben an entrepreneur (who you might remember from The Bachelorette, Season 9) came all the way to Italy from Texas, to celebrate their engagement.

They might already know a thing or two about working it for the camera, but for the rest of us, an engagement shoot is the perfect opportunity to get used to a photographer and try out some poses before your big day.

Scroll down for their gorgeous pics, but first up, we’ll pass you over to the lovely Lindsay to tell us a little bit more about their special shoot…

From The Bride

We chose Rome as our engagement photo destination because of the old city charm. Both Rome, and Villa Borghese, exude a whimsical, romantic atmosphere with pockets of sunshine and gorgeous scenery.

Our engagement shoot was charming and lovely. We wanted to keep it simple and romantic, yet tie in the ambience and attitude of Italy.

Teresa of In Love In Italy Photography did a wonderful job not only in finding our shoot locations, but also making us feel at ease in front of the camera.

My sweet fiance Ben proposed to me with a Tacori three stone, twisted band, engagement ring that I am completely smitten with. My “something blue” was the Brian Atwood turquoise gladiator heel that I wore with a great white dress by ShopBop. My handsome soon-to-be groom is dressed in Michael Kors.

We greatly enjoyed our time in Italy, and will soon be back for our honeymoon!
