The past two summers, my husband and I have taken our kids to Greece to see his family. This year was actually my third time visiting Greece with my first time going back in 2001 when my husband and I were just dating! We’ve been to many places in Greece but this was our first year visiting Santorini and it was AMAZING! The views are like no other and the architecture colors are so beautiful. I can see why its all of us photographers dream place to go shoot!
We only stayed for 2 nights in Greece and actually stayed one night in Imerovigli and one night in Oia. All the photos below were taken in Oia which was so picturesque. Next year we plan to stay longer and photographing a wedding in Santorini would be my dream! Engagement shoot with a long flowing dress, yes please! We plan to go yearly to Greece and will visit Santorini as much as we can. Sharing this experience with our kids has been amazing and they have loved it as much as us!
Finding a wedding photographer can be very stressful. There are so many factors when trying to find the right one. Most people want to find someone local to their wedding venue or someone local to them to meet with and fly them over to their destination wedding. I want to call myself a Greece Wedding Photographer because I will be spending 1 month over there each year so I can photograph weddings while visiting and I wouldn’t charge for travel depending on the location. Getting married in July/August is popular and travel would not be extra as I will already be staying there. :o)
First is budget. You have a certain budget for photography so you try to find a photographer who fits in that.
Second is style. Figuring out the style you like can be hard. I am a light and airy photographer as well as a film photographer but there are moody photographers, journalistic and more.
Third is personality. You want your photographer to be more then just somewhere there doing their job and shooting your wedding. Pick someone who is fun, outgoing, super friendly who will become friends with you, easy to get along with and nice, which is someone like me! I love to make my clients feel comfortable with choosing my company because these memories are the most important ones ever! Inquire with me if you are looking for a Santorini photographer!
