Who said that engagement photography needs to be ordinary?
Take a look at Maria and John’s engagement session in Chios and rethink it! These lovebirds are getting married this summer at Chios Island we could not be more excited!
Planning an engagement sessions prior to your wedding is a great way to get familiar with your photographer, get used to being in front of the lens and work your best angles and moves to produce the timeless imagery that will speak you.
Away from the ordinary engagement photo sessions, Maria and John opted for a Tuscan inspired lifestyle engagement session to announce the news to their families and friends. John was the mastermind behind this different take on an engagement session and Joanna Loukaki was the perfect ally to help execute his idea into a unique experience for the couple.
Drawing inspiration from John’s profession as a chef, he thought of incorporating this as an element to a fun and different lifestyle photography. The couple found themselves amongst century old olive trees at a secluded location where they were free to share intimate and fun moments together. They prepared summer plates together and Maria’s summer dress was even according to the lifestyle theme. The scenery, the cooking everything reminded us of our favourite Tuscany. The couple was very at ease performing activities they do in their daily lives making this engagement session very relaxed.
We continued with a couple’s session in the streets of Chios where Maria and John posed gracefully and naturally sharing their intimacy and producing timeless imagery. Having photography sessions at sunset is what we love the most as the light is always perfect and the couples seem to enjoy watching sunset together too! All ready and relaxed, Maria and John enjoyed each other’s company and smiled all the way through!
So, if you are wondering whether having your engagement session should follow certain rules and themes – stop! Here is proof that you can organize for your engagement session to be a little different and create very special imagery to cherish. Maria and John’s Tuscan inspired engagement session had it all: Mediterranean feels, cooking and century old olive grove.
