Sharing our excitement for this wedding and this feature on Style Me Pretty on this Thursday!
Hannah and Yoni’s Mykonos wedding had it all: white washed houses, the turquoise waters from the Aegean Sea and lots of love all around. Choosing a destination as stunning as a Greek Island, and especially Mykonos, the queen of Cyclades is bound to elevate your big day celebrations!
As our bride mentioned, when you are in love with the Greek Islands there is no debate in deciding where to tie the knot. Picture perfect locations, the brightest sun you can get all against the backdrop of the Aegean. What more is there to ask for?
That is why when Yoni proposed to Hannah during their annual trip, they instantly knew where they would exchange vows of eternal love and devotion! So, they flew to Mykonos, the island of windmills, with their families and closest friends and had the best wedding on a warm June day!
Island vibes where already present from their invitation suite and guest knew to pack their sunglasses in advance. Hannah’s mother was the mastermind behind these minimal yet chic decorations. You cannot have a Greek based wedding and not have olive playing a significant part in your wedding style. Tying in white button roses and lots of gypsophilia made this celebration a true ode to the essence of all refined and truly Greek elements. Hannah’s vision was brought to life and her wedding was indeed a Grecian chic celebration!
The Greek Orthodox ceremony was a very special moment for these two. The calm ambience created by the hymns, the sun setting during the vow exchange and the little chapel in the middle of the island all made up for a very intimate and moving ceremony. Capturing authentic emotions is always an honour when couples choose us to tell their love stories.
Hannah was ethereal on their big day, so refined and so radiant. She even designed her own jewelry (check out her work here) and kept it all minimal and sleek in true Grecian style!
And where better to end your wedding celebrations than Alemagou? Sea wood, earthy tones, embellished with olives and gyphophilia to add the island vibes and still keep it chic.
Follow us, as we unfold their love story bit by bit in true Mykonos style!

Ah.. What can we say about this gem? An Hydra wedding always seize to amaze us. Like Jenny and Tasso’s three-day long celebrations in this traffic –free island.
Hydra is the island where you can get anywhere on foot or a donkey! The most picturesque island in the Saronic Gulf and just 2 hours away from the busy capital, Athens. What better background ask for when creating impeccable imagery than traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets and that crisp Aegean blue?
Jenny and Tassos fell for this island and they knew instantly where they would like to celebrate the beginning of their life as a couple. Flying from the US with their families and friends, they planned a wedding weekend in all its glory. With the help of RT Events Group, Jenny’s vision came to life.
Sunset yacht ride around the island and cold drinks led to amazing moments filled with lots of love and laughter. We cannot put in words what an amazing crew this was and the coolest vibe you would get from this couple. We do hope that our pictures can communicate this to you though!
Having an island wedding, would not be complete if blue was not one of its colours. And what a harmonious décor this one was, all dressed in bright white with hues of blue. Something borrowed; something blue was definitely a sensation in this wedding! Following an intimate ceremony where different customs of both the groom and bride’s background were incorporated, was a lively party like no other at magnificent Castello.
Capturing those happy looks on film, the vivid dance moves and the love in the air all over is why we do what we do. Jenny and Tassos also decided to devote some time to enjoy the moment in the company of each other so, we had arranged for an extra day of photo shooting in this romantic location. Fuchsia bougainvillea, whitewashed walls and glorious sunlight made up for the most romantic scenery to get lost in the arms of each other. We had the opportunity to create imagery for these two that really allowed us to tell their story through our lens. Always make time for each other before the big day arrives, walk around your favourite places and share a kiss, a laugh, a hug. This will make all the difference when you look through your wedding photographs and reminisce.
So, let us take you to Hydra island and catch a glimpse of this amazing love story with the most romantic and heartfelt celebrations.

T What is not to love about this iconic island?
So, when John asked Tanya to marry him during their annual family trip, there was no debate about the place that would seal their love and their journey as husband and wife would commence; Santorini. Tanya and John flew in with their closest friends and family to celebrate the beginning of their new life in the most romantic scenery at Cavo Ventus Hotel; all dressed up in dreamy pink hues and some bold dark blue elements to make a true islandish statement.
Beautifully curated by Julia and Evita from Santorini Glam Weddings, this wedding was everything a girl could ask for. Tanya’s wedding vision was brought to life by the experts and we were there to capture all this prettiness! Although this was a challenging day due to the severe winds blowing on this beloved island, the ceremony was still impeccable. A canopy wrapped in pink textile and embellished with roses against the clear views of the Aegean on the top of a cliff was nothing sort of magical.
Tanya and John exchanged their vows in a sentimental ceremony among their family and friends while warm light allowed for some breathtaking photographs. The celebration dinner was intimate as guests sat across a long table. You could feel the genuine love in the atmosphere, you could hear the heartfelt laughter everyone shared and understand the tears of joy from the bride.
Minimal décor is needed when the scenery is so captivating. Following on from the ceremony décor, scattered rose gold pot filled with romantic rose and white roses where placed on the dinner table. We loved the little details; the personalized place cards, the thoughtful wedding favours with traditional sugarcoated almond sweets and of course, who couldn’t notice the bold dark blue with rose gold calligraphy going on in this sumptuous menu? Metallic elements, rose gold, pink hues and lots of roses made up for the dreamiest celebration in Santorini. Noticed the fair lights and lots of candles in the pictures? You can’t have a romantic wedding in Santorini without them!
Taking it all in after their big day, Tanya and John decided to talk a stroll around Oia the morning after. And what a delight that was! Having a next day photo shooting allows you to relax and indulge in your new status as a married couple! And those two loved every minute of it! Who wouldn’t like having their postcard like pictures the first day as Mr and Mrs afterall? Tanya and John enjoyed the morning light in Santorini, danced barefoot in the pebbled alleys and enjoyed the seas views holding each other tight; this was their new life.
Could you imagine yourself indulging in these views? Let us know in the comments!

Hello everyone!
It has been a long time since we posted on our blog – but we had some good reasons for that… you will see, literally!
Read on…
We wanted to share a few words to let you know what we have been up to thus far, how creative and well-travelled our summer has been and confirm that we are now back and ready to work on the new exciting projects we have ahead of us.
Firstly, though, we would like to say a big thank you to all our beautiful couples who trusted us to capture their emotional big days and let us work with them to tell their stories. Thank you for making us feel like part of your family and letting us photograph these moments to cherish.
We cannot but mention, all the brilliant vendors and wedding professionals we had the opportunity to collaborate with this season. Some are old friends that we enjoy working with every time just because it no longer feels like work and others we are happy to have met this season and cannot wait to collaborate again on new projects.
However, we have to admit that no matter how much we enjoy and love what we do it takes its toll on our family time especially during peak wedding season during summertime. Therefore, we are happy things are winding down a bit and we have the chance to spend quality time with our children, our family and friends and of course, our dog! We very much miss them when we are constantly on travel!
So, follow us to Hydra, Spetses, Mykonos, Santorini, Chios, Milos, Corfu, Kea, Athens, Tuscany and more as we set to unfold the beautiful love stories through our lenses.
Keep an eye out on our posts every Thursday to get inspired, travel and be part of our wedding stories.

We can’t believe it has already been a month since our intense five day photography workshop in Spetses island. Words cannot describe what an honour it has been working along some of the industry’s most talented professionals and collaborating with a dream team of the most supportive vendors we could ever ask for.

We only see fit to dedicate this post to everyone who participated and worked behind the scene to help make this dream of ours a reality. Yiota and I have participated in a lot of workshops ourselves and after years of working experience within the film photography field, we decided to organize our very own workshop in order to share the cumulative knowledge with other like-minded professionals through our eyes.
It took a rigorous 11 month preparation with a lot of late nights working, being constantly on the phone with our co host Justine Milton, to ensure deliverables and most importantly overcoming the challenges faced at an island where there is a strict no car policy in place. The process itself taught us so much about what it takes to put together an educative five day workshop especially as this was our very first attempt. We would like to thank the team of amazing vendors who embraced Phos workshop and helped us in making this a reality. For example, QT albums provided each attendee with their own styling board and we had swag bags daily for each participant. This facilitated the learning process of the workshop to a great extent and we are so thankful to everyone’s contribution.

This has been a great experience for all. We got away with so many beautiful images and great portfolios among the attendees that we can’t wait to share with you! And that is the main reason behind carrying our first workshop: sharing; knowledge, ideas, techniques, experiences and more.
This is why we love film community as well; because it is all about sharing with the aim of becoming better, growing and developing ourselves and our work. Hence, we decided to teach other professionals what we know and share our insight to film photography. We received such positive feedback from our attendees and vendors that we are looking forward to our next workshop scheduled for 2019!

Providing mentoring to new professional photographers and expertise to help them build up on their business or enhance their photography techniques is something Phos workshop inspired us to do as we enjoyed teaching and sharing knowledge so much. Our mentor sessions 1 to 1 are launching soon so be sure to get in touch if you would like to talk business.

For now, have a behind the scenes of what happened at Phos workshop in Spetses and let the light inspire you too.

Paul + Yiota

You can see this magical wedding as published on Magnolia Rouge

Everyone can attest on the multi-faceted landscape one can find Greece. When it comes to destination weddings, we all have this idea of white washed houses against the background of the endless Aegean Sea. However, there is so much more this country has to offer for those who dare to immerse in natural beauty.

That was the case for the wedding of Elena and Yiannis that took place in the middle of an age-old thicket full of platanes in Agios Nikolaos in Northen Greece. Soo Events curated this breathtaking wedding by the river and it was absolutely stunning. We had the opportunity to capture a couple in love, during their special day in the most enchanting scenery we have ever been.

Getting to photograph Elena and Yiannis in the woods, under the shades of the platanes and the calming sounds of the water was one the most challenging things we had done thus far. A wedding set in the midst of a forest, immersing in a completely natural environment calls for high levels of adaptability and flexibility. But, the results have been so rewarding for everyone. Being able to see the pure love and happiness Elena and Yiannis felt on that day is priceless.

Having all your favorite people around you, dancing, laughing and listening to clinging champagne glasses in this luxurious yet traditional wedding was a worthwhile experience that made us overlook any obstacle set forth trying to capture these moments. Being part of such a warm and heartfelt celebration, makes us wonder about all the things this land has to offer. We are islanders at heart but always up to explore new places enjoy every opportunity we are given to photograph authentic wedding festivities.

Keeping a positive attitude and planning ahead is all it takes to be able to take those perfect pictures on the day. We are so glad to have witnessed this wedding, to have seen the real love between Elena and Giannis and their love for mother nature. The greenest green, the everlasting platanes and the fog coming out of the river underneath lots of string lighting made this wedding celebration something straight out of a fairytale.

Have a look and let us know if you can too feel the magic!

We all have an idea of what love is and what it is supposed to look like. That is why when we came across Alex and Marlena for their engagement session in Corfu we knew right there and then that the images would reflect exactly that; real love.

Alexis and Marlena were two of the most carefree and in love people we have had the chance to meet and work with. We strolled around alleys in this majestic island, and photographed them kissing and laughing beneath the bloomed bougainvillea. Marlena’s heartfelt smile came across so intensely that you can really tell by the pictures who much she enjoyed her engagement session in Corfu.

They were so in love and we were so happy to have had the opportunity to capture real feelings against this Venetian backdrop. Corfu is such a cosmopolitan island, full of contradictions, colorful flowers and picturesque balconies that it is always a pleasure to go back there.

We walked across bloomed gardens and photographed these two exchanging glances of love and smiles with their special meaning. The light was magnificent on the day and gave us such wonderful images. We always enjoy having engagement sessions with couples to be, as this really helps us and the couple get more comfortable with each other and the couple to feel at ease in front of the camera. It is like the perfect rehearsal before the wedding day (that was featured on Style Me Pretty here)!

Alexis and Marlena were so authentic in their reactions and expressed themselves so naturally that we could not but have an amazing portfolio depicting real love in the Venetian scenery. And this is only what couples should have in mind when having their engagement session; showing their real love for each other, being natural and enjoying the ride! We are always there to help, give tips and help you relax during the session.

Have a look at this portfolio and share with us what real love is in the comments!

This Santorini engagement session is all you dream and more. Picturesque Oia with views to the endless Aegean and a red beach engagement session that left us in awe.

Nicole and Andrew were an amazing couple we had the chance to photograph in one of our favourite islands, Santorini. Nicole, the creative artist she is herself and Andrew flew all the way from the US to create their own memories in paradise.

Walking through the white washed alleys, we captured the authentic love they have for each other. Engagement sessions make up the perfect opportunity for us to get to know the couple, let them become comfortable in front of the lens and really express themselves.

And so it was for Nicole and Andrew during their engagement session in Santorini across the world’s most renowned landscape. The illuminating sun reflecting on the sea gave us the perfect background to photograph these two.  Our session continued to the red beach where the couple truly felt at ease and really enjoyed their time together! You can definitely tell by the pictures, the heartfelt smiles and the happiness in their eyes. Tipping toes in the sea, walking alongside the shore was the most calming activity for them and we are glad we were there to capture it all! This is how real feelings and real people can be reflected through photography.

Don’t give it a second thought when it comes to arranging your engagement session! It helps develop a trusting relationship with your photographer but most of all it is a great chance for you, as a couple to pause on the wedding whirl and really enjoy the company of each other.

Scroll through these pictures and let us know if you are thinking of having your own engagement session in the comments!

We promise you after looking at this wedding you will be thinking about your own elopement in Santorini!
This Santorini elopement had it all and more; a balcony with majestic views to the endless Aegean Sea at Canaves Oia, an ode to olive incorporated in the wedding bouquet thanks to Betty Flowers Santorini and of course lots of love and meaningful looks from our couple Maria and Kevin.
As wedding photographers, we cherish and value the relationships we build with our couples. Being part of such an important and intimate celebration is such a great honour for us and we take it upon ourselves to create a trustworthy relationship with them as this will most definitely reflect on the wedding pictures. When we met Maria and Kevin we knew right there and then that building up on that photographer – couple relationship would come naturally.

Maria met Kevin at the right place and the right time as she confessed to us in our initial conversation. So, naturally things got the point where Kevin proposed and they wanted to celebrate something so valuable to the two of them; their unconditional love. And what better way to celebrate your elopement than Santorini, right? They travelled all the way from Rhodes Island, NY to the amazing landscape of Santorini where Santorini Glam Weddings had planned their intimate elopement so perfectly to the final detail; and you know how much we love details! And so did Maria!
Working with brides who appreciate our work and evidently look for those candid and detailed shots of their wedding dress or rings is why we do what we do. Plenty of bright sunlight across the room gave us the chance to produce some amazing bridal portraits while Maria was getting ready, just as she had envisioned for her wedding pictures.

Against the whitewashed buildings of Santorini, our bride walked down the aisle beautiful as ever in a total white look blending in so effortlessly with the scenery. Their private dinner was held in one of the best balconies on the island. Overlooking Oia and with views to the Aegean, this was a dinner for two under the Santorini skies. Being among so many people yet alone on the island’s most prestigious spot is a dream for every bride. We will let you wonder off to your elopement in Santorini and your dinner with an unbeatable view.

A lot of our soon- to- be- brides ask us whether it is essential to have an engagement photo-shoot before the wedding. With all the wedding planning in motion, which we know how overwhelming it can be, couples tend to overlook the importance of having their engagement photos taken by their wedding photographer. Are you wondering if it is worth it, too? Here are five reasons why you should not miss out on having your own engagement photo-shoot.

Engagement session on film in Santorini1. You’ll get to know your photographer
One of the major reasons why taking engagement photos is totally worth it, is because you will get to meet your wedding photographer and build a trustworthy rapport with them. On the wedding day, your photographer will be with you for so many hours, so having someone you feel comfortable around is a huge advantage. They’ll take note of how you interact with each other and your individual personalities. These details will help them capture moments on the wedding day that are unique to just the two of you.

2. Practice makes perfect
A lot of couples get anxious in front of a camera and start wondering if their photos will turn out bad or if it is it going to take long. Well, having a professional engagement session before the wedding gives a taste of what to expect on the big day and will help you feel more relaxed on the day. You will have the chance to work on your posing, get more comfortable with the idea of having someone taking pictures of you all the time and focus on just the two of you. Your photographer will give you great tips on posing, will understand your good sides and help you feel at ease while taking pictures of you.

3. Creating collateral to use pre-wedding
You will have professional photographs of you that can be incorporated into anything wedding related. From your wedding website, to your save the date or even your wedding guest book. You can give your parents or grandparents a few copies which they will absolutely love and even have some portraits to hang at your home. Whatever you decide to use them for, the possibilities are endless!

4. You will see finished professional photographs of yourselfers before the wedding
It is very hard for couples to imagine how their own wedding pictures will look like no matter how many galleries and portfolios of their photographer they have gone through. Having your finished professional photos is perhaps the most important reason why you should have your engagement photos taken by your wedding photographer. It will give you the opportunity to see what is to be expected for your wedding day and understand how your wedding photos will actually look like.

 

5. Combine it with your hair and make-up trial
What better way to put to test your wedding look than having actual professional photos taken on the same day? This will give you the chance to see if you are happy with the look you have decided to go for or if there are any changes you wish to make.

Whatever you choose to do, get creative and have some fun. In the end, you’re the ones who will benefit. Working with your wedding photographer before the big day will help you connect with them, learn how to work your way around a camera and what to expect when the prints come in. Knowing and liking your wedding photographer is significant in the success of your day and will help you focus on the real reason you’re having a wedding in the first place—each other.
