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.

Wedding Photography in

Island Private House

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.

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.

Our images are about connection, empathy and meanings that bring people together.

The essence of our work  is our mutual interest that helps us overcome “work” and guides us to sharing this very personal result. If you are into practicals or only budget ooriented  this is  a side of our work that will be lost . In this case you can certainly find other alternatives.

We care to give you something you never knew you wanted, and once you get it you cannot imagine your life without it.

Hash tag #pepefaiou and who could know ..

When she grows up she wants to be a ballerina spinning.
Impatient…
Who could know but Elon Musk.
In Rotterdam.
Where things went out of hand.
But who could know?

And as there are no ways of knowing for sure,
there are these special ways of knowing
for pretty sure.

Over a game of playstation.
Over a well cooked meal.

In just a split of a second
or a split of it,
between everyday lines

That it is, in the knowing that we grow
and love will expand to contain us.

But who would know?
Over a glass of wine,
over this one,
particularly this one twitch of the lip.

Because theres always someone who knows something.

About fairy tales.
Abstract and unique,
reflective by nature.

Fairy tales, that project on us as we project on them.
Like words that we make up
to giggle,
to share,
to intimacy,
to special meanings,
to odd translations.

To friendship.
But who would know,
but old best friends
and new ones.

To care and share.
To shed a tear for the lost of childhood,
and the untangleable bonds,
that will remain forever and ever.

But who could know that some things are meant to be, as we met again and again, on friends weddings and we were chosen instinctively. As we chose them. It was inevitable for here was a story that had to be told.

The Wedding

Wedding Photography Spetses

An amazing island. A destination that will stay in your heart and make you smile every time you think of it. An island that will seduce you and make your life easier as your wedding destination.

Blessed by its beauty. Too pretty, too accessible and too popular. An elegant choice for #pepefaiou and a perfect match.

One could tell that It was going to be Spetses.
This is an island where your senses immediately come alive: the air, refreshingly warm, carries the smell of the sea one moment, then freshly baked pastries the next. Locals drink their espressos and frappés as they play backgammon in the shade and eye the latest arrivals climbing out of the red-and-white water taxis.

Around the corner from the port, the winding, cobbled coastal road opens into a wide, expansive piazza that acts as a forecourt for the Poseidonion, a grand, august hotel styled like a château and modelled on the Carlton in Cannes and the Negresco in Nice.
There is something timeless about the square, and indeed the island itself. It is as close to the idyllic Hellenic picture as you can imagine: fishermen lay out their catch by the seafront as the locals stroll along the promenade, past impressive villas, domed churches and traditional tavernas with tables lining the road. Cars being banned from the town,   horse-drawn carriages rattle through the backstreets
The Venetians named the island Spezia, meaning spice , but it could just as well have been after the powerful scents of jasmine and pine , bougainvillea and hibiscus. But then we could go on forever, about this and about #pepefaiou and anything about this wedding.

 The amazing venue of Poseidonion Grand Hotel was going to host the preparation of Faye. Hospitality, and belle epoque style luxury, only fitting to our special bride to be. The groom and his friends at a private villa – enjoying the swimming pool until the very last minute. A beautiful coach carried our bride to Agios Nikolaos a church overlooking the old harbour. 

The reception  was to take place at the well known “Kaiki”. The beautiful decoration of Fevronia and organized by Mae Mavroudi of Greek Weddings made the world of a difference.
And as it is obviously implied, wedding photography spetses by arChive Visual Storytellers

This was a wedding to remember. And these are two people we will always keep deep in our hearts.

And who would know?

If a man asks a girl for a date…
That’s his business.
If the girl accepts…
That’s her business.
If the man and the girl decide to marry…
That’s their business.
However, if they want great wedding photographs…
THAT’S OUR BUSINESS!!!

Wedding Photographer Nafplio // Elmina & George’s wedding in Nafplio

Lost in History

Wedding Photographer Nafplio

Elmina & Giorgo's

Wedding in Nafplio

Nafplio. A city in the heart of Peloponnese

Beautiful  Nafplio,sophisticated and fine, unwinding through twisting labyrinthine alleys. A gentle pine-scented breeze  was blowing and the view from the seafront  with its island castle Bourtzi decorating the mountains behind it,  looked like the nicest place we could  spend dreaming. And we love dreams, as we love stories.
While going through our usual and very addictive scouting procedure. we spend hours getting lost around this  place. In an amazing walk around, the seafront swings us through a rocky arch into a stunning view of the 18th century fortress of Palamidi, 999 rock carved steps above us, to watch the sun go down behind the mountains, colouring the sea crimson red. Click. We locked this location. It will forever inspire our dreams, our stories. And theirs.

Elmina & Giorgos

– When did you first fall in love?
“I think, I first fell in love when I was in fifth grade with this boy who kept his glass ruler in the sunlight and made rainbows on my desk with it.”
Elmina & Giorgos. A beautiful childhood love story.  How many times did you forget your first love? We are sure the answer is a unanimous-never. That is what childhood love is all about. It is that first wave of love and affection that stays with you for a lifetime. Its that first stab of love that resembles a sunset, a blaze of color that turns the world upside down.

And then there is Amsterdam.  We first met them in Amsterdam. Knowing very little about them, And there was this something we are so keen on discovering, each time. Small , tiny bits, about the people we meet. Small things that grow. In our hearts and become a part of us.  And there was respect, as there was trust. And there was passion to connect and to share. The inevitably necessary “evil” that we initially represented, was gradually transformed to an ultimate point of reference …from this day on.  And we were privileged and honoured to be their  wedding photographers.

The empty canvas was now becoming our playground once again.

Life, memories and dreams

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.
