…and when there are no words left to say,
I will be in your arms, looking into your eyes –
and see I am exactly where I’m meant to be.


“Then love knew it was called love. 
And when I lifted my eyes to your name, 
suddenly your heart showed me my way”

A sophisticated wedding in Symi

Wedding photographer Symi // 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…

How inspiring it is to be with people who are happy, who smile through their eyes  and share their love.
One year ago today, a boy and a girl came into our lives. Like in all things , chemistry did its magic and we had a story to tell. 

Casey and Alex. Happening in Symi, one of the most picturesque and charming islands we have ever visited. Being very special for its unique architecture, the colorful houses and the ultimately charming energy, the setting oozes charm. The mesmerizing crystal clear waters will  bewitch you. Standing on the cliff above the port you have to hold your breath at the amazing sunsets elegantly unfolding  on the Aegean Sea.  And we can go on and on, endlessly, as it is obvious we prejudicedly love!
In so many ways when you share your story with someone it becomes a part of their story too.

We shall not reveal more. As this is only a sneak peek post to be shared with loved ones. Enjoy and  stay tuned for more.

A welcome evening took place, where else but Orsalia’s. The beautiful scenery, the elegant setup and the impeccable hosting, gave the guests the fulfilment and experience of Greek hospitality. A beautiful home, at the very top of Horio , overlooking the island, reaching as far as the shores of Turkey. Breathtaking, to say the least.

The pre-wedding party was the on the famous Poseidon Cruise. Needless to say it was a hit! Yiannis did his thing. Again.

Following the daily cruise there was a pre wedding party at Petalo. A first taste of what the wedding party was going to feel like. 

Our brides preps took place at the Old Markets Hotel, right in the heart of Megali Strata. Our very special part of the island !
The Old Markets – is an exquisite, centuries-old national monument with enthralling views over Symi’s historic harbour. A painstaking restoration has delivered a quietly opulent boutique hotel offering the most luxurious lodgings to be had in Symi.

The ceremony took place at the old chapel Analipsi. Directly at the sea. Near the rock of Nimmos,  this nice little monastery with a very decorated small church inside. Basically, the only thing that is in this bay is the monastery. The church inside is full of paintings, decoration and has a lot to discover. The miracles are depicted on the walls

The reception was held at Aya Marina, one of the loveliest beaches in Symi. Taxi boats were hired for the guest and he couple. Needless to say, the party went on until the early morning hours, when the last taxi boats took us back home.

MYKONOS MELODIE AND YOANN

As we stand here,
Hand in hand,
Under the neon lights
Of Truth and Love.
I’m asking you to
Dance with me.
To twirl,
Kick,
Drop,
Jump,
And fly
With me.
Skidding and
Sliding across
The dancefloor of life,
I want you to
Glide with me.
Through the
Saddest and
Happiest songs,
The fastest highs
To the longest and
Slowest lows,
I want you to
Flow through
Them all
With Me.”

And this is the story of Melodie and Yoann. This, and so much more.
Our storytelling is a unique bespoke service we offer to our couples.

We have once again set out on a journey to discover a fascinating world of love.
And what a destination this was. The most amazing weather was welcoming us at the Island of winds.

MYKONOS

Mykonos/Cosmopolitan and serene, we will always welcome the opportunity to visit this whitewashed paradise in the heart of the Cyclades. And we have lifetime bonds with this Island. The impeccable beauty, and glamour that is always the reason for more gossip. But this island is undeniably like no other, and always an endless challenge for us to take more unique photographs. We like to see different things each time, just as if we have been there only for the first time. Mykonos will never fail you.

Enjoying the perfect spot in warm Aegean waters, this is a sun-kissed paradise, with its whitewashed villages ever so bright. Our favorite Little Venice, with the colorful fishing houses that line the waterfront, their balconies hanging over the sea below, a sight to savor. Be it the music or the timeless energy, there are attractions to suit all tastes here and, with the sun always beating down, life does not get much better.
This unique destination became the dream place for Melodie and Yoann, their first experience, from Canada to Greece was to be their wedding story, and we were appointed as their Storytellers.
The beautiful Villa Elea in Elia was to host their ceremony. Overlooking the golden beach of Elia the horizon was endlessly spreading right in front of our eyes.
The sun came up, and a warm Aegean sea wind was blowing in. This is what Mykonos does to you: It clears the sky and chills you out and then suddenly it’s as warm and exhilarating as it should. Don’t believe it for a minute, you tell yourself one thing, but the sheer twist of circumstances make a fool of you.

We could click our cameras forever. rewarded by two people whose gentle smiles and passion for life and each other, breath life to our images.

We wish you well Melodie and Yoann, and nothing less than the best, and for your life to be a relentless adventure forever and ever. Thank you for trusting us with your memories.

The best storytellers look to their memories and life for ways to illustrate their story.

Welcome to our world of Storytelling. Set your imagination free and let us make your dream come true. We commit ourselves to stories with a challenge, photographs that will safe keep your memories in the years to come. We care to be a part of your journey. We are inspired by your trust and In the simplest and most straightforward and natural way, we create Images from the heart.

Share your vows in the surreal beauty of Mykonos, with the gleaming Aegean waters, rocky cliffs, breathtaking sunsets in the backdrop, or have a lavish ceremony in Mykonos’s most lavishing venues
. We will join you in the jostling street clouds, the lounger lifestyle of your favorite beach in a relentless party, or a subdued private gathering.

We shall be your storytellers and we shall be your friends. For images from the heart.

(We provide privacy but also the discreet intimacy required for each occasion.)

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.

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.
