Vas & Seb in Island Gallery

Wedding Photography in

Island Art & Taste | Gallery

We live in a fairy tale  with alternate endings. No safety net is there to prevent us from slipping, no caution signs to guide our steps. Conflicting images appear to us harmonious and opposites are blended to form bland. Love and passion interfere with success and other such necessities, but, as if by miracle and through thousands of contradictions, finds its way no matter what. Yearning for the meaningful, it is transformed to harmony. 

Life is moving pictures and each time we blink our eyes the world shifts beneath our feet, And we shift along in an endless dance. To a music that elevates the spirit, to a place of transcending beauty. This determines the nature of our photographs.

Moments, memories and dreams…

We go back a little over one year, when we met this amazing family. It was for Eleni and Tom’s wedding. This time its was for her beautiful younger sister Vas, getting married to Seb at Island Gallery. It was an honour and a priviledge to be trusted and chosen as their wedding photographers, their storytellers. 

So different from Eleni yet so similar in the essence, Vas is a beautiful combination of shy and sensitive, yet sharp, intense and very passionate. 

Seb, is a gentleman. Any other description would intimidate this title. But he is much more. Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage :-)  And what a challenge it must be  to be a member of this very special family. To dance zeibekiko with the pros! 

What does it take to dance zeibekiko ? This amazingly difficult dance, mainly because it has no steps and no particular rhythm. What it calls for is inner intensity, as it is an improvised dance that expresses feelings. 

Originally strictly a man’s dance. Not embarrassed to manifest pain or weaknesses, the real man ignores social conventions and shallow condescension. He will pick the lyric that expresses his personal state of mind and he will dance it out, Humbly and with dignity. He will dance only this once,  he will not monopolize the floor, or be interrupted.

After Tom who will now boast as “palios”, Seb proved his worth :-) 
Only pending issue …coming shortly… is his ability to join our Zacapa tradition. 

Thank you for trusting us with your memories.

We are moment hunters. Hunting for words that reveal who you are and the way you connect to each other. We turn these words to images that tell your story.

Someone needs to tell these stories. Like when the pirates find their treasures, and the princesses their prince. We need to tell these bits of overlapping narrative.

There’s magic in that. It is in us.

And for each one of us it will be different, and it will touch you, us,  in ways we can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. Don’t forget, there are many kinds of magic. And you can take this story and shape it. Then it will take residence in your heart. And in ours.  You are the life of it. 

This is our role.

And this is our gift.

Wedding in Naxos

Wedding Photographer Naxos

Peru & Yiorgos

Wedding in Naxos

We hope to never grow to lose the inspiration in the smallest and simplest of things. We hope never to lose the magic in sunsets or ever laugh less. We hope always be able to leave a space for magic to happen.

And when she walked holding wild flowers in her hands the world stood still. For these few seconds, minutes, hours, days or years the world belonged to her. A day like no other. A day of no necessities, or compromises. Her wedding day!

And he, the soul within this magic. It was all becoming inexplicably connected, the location, the people, the ruins behind us, the priest, the people, the appropriateness of moments, of synchronicity, the rain that spared to spoil the dream, just for that one day, and the Sea. Its always the sea. That was so close to perfection.

Someone has to tell these tales. Someone needs to show these bits of overlapping narrative. Someone has to walk a mile in their shoes… someone has to care. And there is soul in all of that. We often tell a tale that takes up residence in someones soul, endlessly driving, transforming or shaping images to memories to magic. And this is our gift.

Why Naxos ?

Naxos, because nobody can resist the never ending golden sandy beaches, with the crystal clear blue waters. It is here that you can fird what you are looking for, to bring back home magnifiscent memories and strong images of diverse scenery and unique landscape patterns.

We have been to Naxos many many times, but we have never failed to discover yet another hidden treasure. A wedding in Naxos is a wonderfully rewarding experience as the island offers a wide variety of original alternatives. Gastronomically it is unbeatable!

For Peru and George, it was an Island in the Aegean neither had visited before. Just that!

Wedding photography does not have to look like wedding photography. It is all about relationships.
What makes the world of a difference, is the connection between people and the means by which you can spot, understand, experience and interpret these relationships. We summon creativity, courage, and the vision to bend, or very often break the rules.

And there are no second chances.  

Photographer Naxos

Wedding Photography

It takes hard preparation, precision organisation, and endless creativity. It takes all of these, but more, to even have a chance of delivering stunning results.
It is not about the lense or the camera, but the photographer behind it. You need to be brave and confident to cross boundaries to explore your world in others. But even more than that, we believe that what makes a photograph truly important is the experience it can deliver.

Wedding in Limeni

Wedding Photographer Mani

“In those days, we finally chose to walk 
 like giants 
 and hold the world in arms 
 grown strong with love
And there may be many things we forget in the days to come,
But this will not be one of them.” 

Brian Andreas

A spellbound Wedding in Mani

Dry, bare and rugged. The land of the prickly pear bristles with forbidding tower houses, stone villages, Byzantine chapels, delightful coves and astonishing caves. Mani.
Overwhelmed with images of authentic Greece, because here in this corner of the Peloponnese, everything is dramatic and bewitching.
Spectacular stone strongholds that thrust from the rocky land, as if to strike  the sky itself. Fortified villages of haunting beauty. Byzantine churches, usually small and humble, nevertheless architectural masterpieces. Their exteriors are of brick and russet stone with beautiful domes and carved marble iconostases.

And there is this indescribable energy of Messa Mani. No place could count as a more ideal backdrop for a very special couple on a very special occasion. Their wedding in Mani.

Sometimes words become most inadequate when you are trying to describe strong personalities, intense emotions and deep bonds. Even more when you want to describe Love.

The ancient Greeks called love “the madness of the gods.”
Shakespeare said, “Love is blind and lovers cannot see.”
Aristotle commented “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”

And we? We make stories.

Once upon a time, in a place neither far not near, amidst the whispers of the olive trees, first date, first step and new beginnings…

“ In your light, I learn how to love.”

Welcome to our world of storytelling. Stay tuned.
Not only was it an honour, but also an immense priviledge to be trusted, to have shared, to have witnessed, to have photographed.

Life is moving pictures and each time we blink our eyes the world shifts beneath our feet, And we shift along in an endless dance. To a music that elevates the spirit, to a place of transcending beauty. This determines the nature of our photographs.

Moments, memories and dreams…

It was one of the rarest times when we were first approached by the parents of the bride. As we are very personal about our connection with the couple, we were slightly taken aback. But life is about proving you wrong, Liza and Dimitris were the most adorable people we have ever met. They organized Tom and Eleni’s wedding with the ultimate care, elegance, and a discretion rarely found on similar occasions.

Like a chip of the old block, these were characteristics that we immediately spotted on Eleni. We were instantly taken aback by her frankness, and the affectionate politeness directed through her eyes, to every word she carefully chose to utter.
The rare qualities in a blend of an untamed tomboy, a raving teenager, a rock drummer, a fine pianist, and the stunning elegant lady. What a perfect match.

Tom is a restless guy, eager to get all the latest answers. Also a natural model. Voted best groom model of the year and the most talented syrtaki group dancer we ever came across.Tom and Eleni alerted our interest to discover more about them. An interest that almost instantly became a comfortable intimacy and the need to connect. Our images are about connection, empathy and words that bring people together. They are also about the intention to care. Art is born from intention.

Their enthusiasm was contagious, and they had a way to compliment us for every effort made. There is no greater reward for us as wedding photographers, to have fulfilled their trust, and we simply cannot wait to have them here with us again for their presentation.

If we can work this story backwards we can very honestly declare that we are very very lucky to have met this family , all members included, and privileged to have been their Storytellers.

Thank you for your trusting us with your memories.
