Travelling to one of the world’s and, our favourite island destination today: Santorini! No matter how many times we travel there to capture love stories, this island never seizes to amaze us. Blue is indeed the warmest colour; the backdrop of the Aegean Sea, the pebbled alleys, the breathtaking sunset. There is something new to discover, this island’s vibe is unique and couples know it!
Santorini is by far the most romantic island; fit for wedding celebrations, to engagement sessions and of course, proposals! Who wouldn’t dream of being asked to marriage in the views of Oia? Well, Yida had carefully planned exactly how we would propose to Georgia and it involved, a scavenger hunt, a song written by him and one of the most famous bookstores worldwide, Atlantis bookstore. It can’t get more romantic than this!

This proposal has been featured on The Knot, How They Asked
Wedding proposals are so intimate and personal, they should reflect you as a couple and remind you of moments you have shared together. And what an honour this has been, to capture this proposal unfolding in action in a warm and sunny day on the island. Blue and white hydrangeas were beautifully placed in the bookstore, not causing suspicion to Georgia, and the long white piano was located in the terrace for Yida to play his song.
Little did Georgia know when wandering inside the bookstore and looking around for books that she was in for her biggest surprise. Starting to discover clues she followed the leads to the terrace. Books that were about their life as a couple were placed in the bookstore and hidden pieces of shared memories were gracefully hidden in books. Georgia noticed the music from the piano and found Yida playing a song in the piano he wrote for her; the moment he took out the engagement ring and proposed to Georgia was full of emotions: there was love, faith, surprise, happiness and endless romance. Georgia’s parents joined in on the celebrations, because what better way to celebrate your engagement than sipping champagne and enjoying the views of the Aegean?
The best way to end this authentic proposal, was walking around Oia and its cobblestoned alleys and capturing the content couple against the beauty of Santorini. Bright sunlight and the Aegean blue were there providing the picture perfect backdrop for our imagery. Oia views were breathtaking as always, fuchsia bougainvillea against whitewashed houses and blue domes scattered in the area is all that makes Santorini so unique and dreamy. Capturing this beauty with raw emotions is a winning combination!

On a warm summer day we had the pleasure to witness Madina and Edouard’s new life adventure. They met sometime eight years ago and have been together ever since. They took their first trip to Athens and the Greek islands so, is was very easy to decide on their wedding destination. A white romance set in Athens Riviera was the perfect fit for this couple whose elegance, love and emotion was overflowing the venue.

Madina is a French from the Caribbean and Edouard is from the South of France hence, seeing their families and friends coming together to celebrate such a significant occasion was full of colors, happiness and warmth.  They exchanged vows in a sacred ceremony among their loved one at Saint John Baptist church in the center of Athens. The ambience was captivating; every guests seemed consumed to the ritual and what was happening during the vow exchange. Madina and Edouard looked into each other’s eyes and spoke words of eternal love, trust and support. 

It was a beautiful ceremony and our bride was just glowing in her white chic gown. A transparent veil that covered her shoulders and the dress was a perfect addition and a true ode to French chic and craftsmanship. Reception followed at one of the most exclusive venues in Athens nearby the seaside. Island Private House was set up carefully by the lovely ladies, Catherine and Anastasia, from Dream Weddings Europe  to accommodate the wedding dinner and party the followed. Lots of candles and lanterns made up a warm atmosphere while the presence of white and pale rose flower compositions was nicely complementing the white romance of the day.

Listening to crushing waves and feeling that summer breeze, overlooking the city lights Madina and Edouard thanked their guests and shared their first dance as Mr and Mrs. When the cake was cut and fireworks were released in the Athenian sky, you could feel the happiness and love surrounding those too.

As photographers, being the eyes of the couple that can’t be in two places at the same time and being responsible to capture the big and little moments of their wedding we get to experience what guests’ experience. Being part of such a life celebration is so important to us and we feel like extended family each time we document a love story. We want to create imagery that captures your emotions, the vibe of the day- photographs you will look back on ten years from now and be able to relive it all. To you and your future family.

Don’t wait any longer! Check out the gallery and let us know in the comments section what you thought of this French white romance in Athens Riviera. Do you want to create some long lasting memories too?

Every now and then, we receive those requests from couples that touch as a little more on a personal level. We are, of course, talking about maternity photography sessions in Santorini. This was the case of Debra and Warren who would find themselves in one of our favourite island destinations, Santorini. This sweet couple wanted to celebrate being parents and Debra in her final months of pregnancy.

Creative maternity photography sessions are a great way to capture a very special moment in a woman’s life as well as being parents for the first time. Yiota always finds herself to be well connected with women who are expecting as a mother of two now. She understands what this woman is thinking of, feeling like and yes, craves too!

Debra wanted to celebrate her state of mum to be and what better way than a full photography session in the most romantic island of them all, Santorini. We began in the morning in their hotel, at Canaves Oia with the most breathtaking view to the Aegean. The soft light was a perfect element in our creative session. In addition, who said that maternity sessions could not look stylish? Just look at the elegance of this couple and Debra’s shoes and you will understand what we are talking about here. During these photography sessions, it is very important to help the couple feel at ease in order to capture their sweet intimacy, their love and support to each other in this new life chapter of theirs.

We loved seeing caring Darren looking into Debra’s eyes and silently reassuring her that everything will be fine. This maternity session in Santorini was definitely a very special one. We followed the couple around their stroll in Oia and captured their love story among the island’s blue domes. We loved seeing Debra touching her and communicating with her baby.

Our session ended in Imerovigli for the most amazing sunset one can witness. It was a fantastic closure of the day with the light being in our favor and thus, many magic clicks happening. We were able to create imagery that will pass on to Debra and Warren’s family as an heirloom for their kids and grandkids looking back on and celebrating the love for life.

We are ever so grateful our couples choose us to witness their journey in becoming parents and we have to admit that a maternity session in Santorini is the best gift you can do to yourselves and your future family!

We are truly honored each time couples chose us to document their love story and be there to capture all the big and little moments on their wedding day. When industry professionals and colleagues invite us to do the same for them, we cannot begin to express our sincere appreciation and excitement! It is a true honor and pleasure to be part of this sacred and much loved occasion in a couple’s life, let alone when the couple are friends, we met through our work in the industry. That was the case at Konstantina and Nick’s wedding at Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki in Northern Greece. A white –chic wedding affair that had it all and more as you would expect from a bride that is a full time wedding planner herself!

We happily travelled to Northern Greece, where our couple is from and where Konstantina plans and delivers her events at Sooevents. The ceremony site was a breathtaking church in the middle of a forest where there was a sacred peace and quiet among the nature sounds. Thankfully, the summer breeze of the forest helped in making guests feel at ease during the ceremony. Konstantina chose simple and chic floral combinations for the church decorations. When the location is so beautiful and the church so you do not need to add anything further.

This white chic effect could not evade the stunning wedding gown Konstantina wore on her big day. Looking like a noble princess with her sleek hair in a stylish up do perfectly complementing the wedding dress. Konstantina had so much fun during her preparations with her bridal crew and we were able to capture those candid moments forever. The women dressed in similar robes, sharing a laugh, sipping champagne and being proud of their soon to be married friend that was glowing! We could not have asked for a better ambience to photograph. 

Following the ceremony, a very chic reception followed. Our bride had attended to the small details of the wedding making it a very personal affair for their friends and family. Personalized seating cards, beautiful table sets for each guests and chic florals to complement the décor. And of course, a wedding would not be complete without candles and lanterns to add to the warm atmosphere. The party did last until the early hours of the morning and we could not have been happier to witness all this love and support coming from family and friends for Konstantina and Nick’s new beginning.

On Sunday this destination wedding at Canaves Oia, Santorini was featured on Front Page of Style Me Pretty!

From Ohio all the way to majestic Canaves Oia at Santorini for this ultra-chic wedding! Desiree and Jason picked the world’s favourite destination to celebrate the beginning of their new life.

Amongst the closest family and friends, on a very warm and bright August day when Santorini was looking as prominent as ever, we had the honour to capture this intimate wedding celebration.

White was evident all around us, from the stunning bridal gown from Pronovias, to the whitewashed walls of Canaves Oia in the room where Desiree was getting day for her big day. Bright light washed every detail and created impeccable imagery for yet another time. Clean lines, white flowers and a touch of olive were the elements incorporated in the wedding decorations to remind all of the beautiful country and bring on the island vibes for this celebration.

Against the deepest blue of the Aegean Sea, Desiree and Jason exchanged vows of eternal love and devotion. There was so much emotion, so much love and tears of joy during this matrimony that our lenses captured for them to cherish. An intimate first look for them both; on the steps leading to a magnificent view of Oia, we witnessed tears of joy and love when Jason saw his bride dressed in white.

There is something so special and sacred in the first look; it always gets us by surprise and we are happy to capture it on film! Following on from their emotional ceremony, the couple danced their first dance as Mr and Mrs in the most breathtaking balcony of Santorini. And who wouldn’t want to cut their cake with the views of the Aegean under the most well-known sunset? We sure would!

“Santorini always presented new opportunities to take pictures in the most islandish scenery: cobblestoned alleys, whitewashed houses, fuchsia bloomed bougainvillea and this great landscape present the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos”

We love to see our couples sharing their first moments as husband and wife and taking it all in surrounded by true island vibes. It is in simplicity that we can find real beauty and this is exactly what we found in these celebrations.

A party that lasted till morning, show stopper dance moves and a very happy wedding party that went on till the sun rose. When all you need is love, having your biggest day in Santorini is the best way to celebrate. Have a look at this chic wedding and let us know if you would travel to this beautiful destination to celebrate your love too!

Last year we had the incredible opportunity to travel to Italy and spend two days creating with the amazingly talented Jenny from Chloe and Mint and sweet Christy from Honeycomb Affairs at our beloved Villa Montanare. Today, we’re thrilled to share that our work has been featured by Magnolia Rouge.

What are we talking about? Keep on reading..

Our creative souls and our love for Tuscany had us thinking about putting together an editorial that provides inspiration to so many of you thinking about your destination wedding. And why not Tuscany? It has so much to offer and we admit it- we have a soft spot for this countryside, the noble villas and the olive groves.

We partnered with Chloe and Mint and together we created a Tuscan inspired wedding theme. We found the perfect location in Villa Montanare which is surrounded by olive groves and gives that elegant yet laid back vibe for dinner and receptions.

Drawing inspiration from our surroundings, we worked with earthy tones palette which was reflected in all of our editorial elements: the beautiful stationery from Paper Ocelot, to the simple yet natural floral arrangements by Honeycomb Affairs and of course to that ethereal dress by Gossamer. We cannot express our gratitude to the entire team of vendors who came together to help bring our vision to life.

Our idea behind this creative approach lingers on the beauty of Italy and the choice of Tuscany as a wedding destination. A place that has it all: beautiful landscape, countryside villas, delicious food and the perfect light.

When your guests arrive in Tuscany you would want them to see, feel and taste all that this land has to offer. So, why not organize your wedding at a spectacular villa and make them feel at home? Keeping your centerpieces minimal but incorporating venue elements like olives and little flowers in earthy tones will set the mood for your wedding reception.

Our bridal inspiration came from the quintessential model that embedded everything we had in our mind. We played with light and figures, and show how beauty can be expressed in different perspectives.

Our experience of authentic Tuscany is still fresh in our memories and we hope that you enjoy this editorial as much as we enjoyed when making it. Tell us in the comments what thing inspired you the most for your wedding from this Tuscan concept!

Three day celebration in a no car cosmopolitan island, anyone? Jess and Andreas destination wedding in Hydra is one you shouldn’t miss!

We could not be happier to have been part of a three day celebration in Hydra Island! This Greek island wedding has been published twice already in Toronto Life and Lee Petra Grebeneau and we could not but dedicate a post on it in our blog. Scroll to read more and see more of this amazing imagery…

A welcome sunset cocktail party over Hydrea Mansion, a beach party the next day at Castello all leading to the big day while keeping guests entertained, tanned and showing them all that Greek cuisine has to offer! Can’t get better than this, right?

Jess and Andreas chose Hydra as their wedding destination not only because of the unique beauty of the island but also due to its no car policy. Everything is within walking distance and everything seems so much more picturesque. Plus, there are the typical Greek Island donkeys; one of them actually, Marigold, was used to transfer Jess to the ceremony site.

The Twelve Events planned and designed a spectacular wedding at Sunset Restaurant ; Jess and Andreas opted for bold colours in their wedding décor and blooming peonies in dark fuchsia, white hydrangeas and salmon pink roses were used to comprise a very romantic scenery. More than twenty chandeliers were used to create this luxurious ambience at Sunset Restaurant where the wedding took place. Dinning by the seaside and enjoying the traditional gourmet Greek cuisine just one of the highlights for this wedding.

Jess walked down the aisle looking radiant in her gown, while the band was playing Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley. It was such a romantic moment where time stood still. The couple exchanged vows during sunset and gave their first kiss under a gorgeous canopy where yet another chandelier embellished the frame!

The wedding party lasted until dawn and was one to remember; the heartfelt smiles, the unconditional love of friends and family flying from the US to celebrate with the couple and the unbeatable views of the sea and the sunset made this celebration an unforgettable experience for Jess and Andreas and everyone who joined them during this three day celebration.

See more of this wedding and tell us in the comments what it is that you liked the most!

For us, seeing Jess on the donkey and capturing this image during her big day was definitely the best moment!

We can’t even count how many times we have encountered couples who are feeling a bit overwhelmed or stressing over their wedding planning journey. And of course, this is understandable given the significance of this life event. However, the wedding planning journey is a unique experience and is a process that you will both enjoy as you plan your celebrations. With so many choices to be made and so much readily available advice everywhere, we get how overwhelming this can be. That’s why we have gathered the top 5 tips for a stress free wedding planning! Insights from industry experts, wedding professionals, couple testimonials and our own experiences, all compiled in a simple and concise list for you to dig through.

1. Set up a wedding email address

First things first; get you a wedding only email address. It is very likely you will be communicating with lots of different vendors and professionals until the big day – you don’t need to see your personal mailbox being flooded with wedding related updates that will disrupt your work flow. Keep everything in a shared mailbox with your partner and enjoy the stress free wedding planning.

2. Join Pinterest and Instagram

We live in a very visual world – these days you can find pretty much anything just by googling it. So, when it comes to creating a life celebration why not seek inspiration from a very visual source too? Pinterest is the number one website brides go to for inspiration, tips, wedding photography and so much more. Give it a try, make your own boards and keep everything neat.

3. Split responsibilities with your partner

They key to enjoying a stress free wedding planning journey is to agree beforehand which areas of responsibilities each of you will have. Perhaps you are more interested in the floral arrangements and wedding photography and he is more into food tasting and picking the right DJ. It’s great if you apply the divide and conquer strategy for this one too. Remember; teamwork makes the dream work!

4. Take care of yourself

Let’s be honest: planning your wedding is perhaps one of the most stressful experiences one can have. But, if you plan accordingly and work with your partner you are bound to eliminate half the stress. The other half, you should remember to practice self-care. Do whatever makes you calm down; get that massage, go for drinks with the girls, enjoy a home cooked dinner with him, read your favorite book.

5. Enjoy the ride

Yes, we know this is what everyone will tell you – and that’s because it’s so true.Getting involved and actually planning your own wedding is a volatile, sometimes stressful process.  Whenever you are feeling overwhelmed or get caught up in the small details, take a step back and remember why you are doing this. To celebrate love and sharing your life with your amazing significant other!

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.

Today we are very excited to share with you the amazing destination wedding in Milos, of James and Ana that took place last summer. You can see more of their celebrations on Style Me Pretty here.

There sure is something enchanting about Greece and its landscape; we, as wedding photographers, are blessed to travel for our work and discover the very different sceneries this country has to offer.

Milos is a very peculiar case in the Cycladic complex, as the landscape has been formed by the strong winds, the sand and the tides present on the island. Being a Milos wedding photographer was a pleasant surprise as there was so much natural beauty to capture along with the couple’s love story.

This outdoor wedding was styled by Think Happy Events who helped make a dream come true for Ana and James. The couple chose an earthy palette that was a natural complement to the surroundings, following an organic oily grey and transparent white. Exactly at sunset time, Ana and James exchanged their vows and promised eternal love, loyalty and support to each other. The sun kissed the sea and the couple kissed beneath this fairytale floral arch with ocean views and the best sunset colours. Creating truly timeless imagery and documenting love stories brings us to the most breathtaking places, like the villa that hosted this wedding affair.

The outdoors venue was located in an exclusive location, overlooking the sea and made the perfect setting for a dinner under the starry sky. The villa followed the natural architecture of the island and was seamlessly incorporated to the surrounding. The privileged location made this celebration extra special and we were happy to be the wedding photographer on Milos Island documenting the special occasion for Ana and James.

The dinner tables were set up with overflowing garlands made up with olive branches and eucalyptus with some scattered white flowers creating a very elegant and organic ambience. Even the wedding cake followed the olive theme, and was beautifully decorated with a sugar paste olive branch.

Ana and James had the perfect ending to their wedding celebrations with an intimate photography session at the most iconic place on the island: Sarakiniko beach. The white rocks and the sand reflect the light and provide the most welcoming and majestic scenery for the couple’s session. You could easily mistake the scenery for a deserted place somewhere else in the world but, this is Greece and we are honored to have been their wedding photographers in Milos.

Keep scrolling through the gallery and travel to the island of light, white sands and turquoise waters to sneak a peek into this Oceanside wedding. We are looking forward to documenting more love stories like James and Ana’s and being the wedding photographer at Milos Island which has been a unique experience for more couples looking to tie the knot in Greece and create their timeless love story.
