Vas & Seb in Island Gallery

Photographer Athens

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.

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 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.
Moments, memories dreams…

We are moment hunters. Hunting for any elements  that will reveal who you are and the way you connect to each other. We turn these elements to images that tell your story.
Our images are about connection, empathy and meanings that bring people together.

We always have a special place in our wedding photography for the day after portrait sessions we share with you. This special one, portrait session in Nafplio, is one of our favorites.

Destination Wedding Photographer Sifnos

If you are planning a Sifnos wedding, guess why the city of Amsterdam can be your perfect meeting point…
Its more like Amsterdam rings a bell for everyone (and us), like there will always be something going on.

Visiting Amsterdam for an organized presentation for the Cats’s Symi Wedding back in January, gave us the opportunity to meet Eliza and Andreas. You know what its like, when one thing leads to the other and here we are one year later… In Sifnos.
The island that most prefers our destination wedding photography, as there has never been a year without at least three visits for respective events. A beautiful destination indeed and a favorite for our couples!

A surprise pre wedding beach party was thrown on Friday at the Lost Bay, where everything became possible.

Friends and families from all over the world, toasting to drinks and dancing wishes to the couple, to love and happiness for ever and ever! It was impossible to call it a day… well, until Saturday… Saturday – and what a beautiful day for vows of love…

We were there to photograph the magic of this sifnos wedding, forever. Precious pictures as keepsakes of capturing and reliving memories, to immortalize every blink of the eye, and forever freeze it in time.
These extraordinary moments that make memories so precious and unique. But we have told you much. Allow us to keep a secret or two. After all this is only a sneak peek of a story that will unfold in the narrow pathways of Kastro, in the sandy beach of Platis Yialos and in the dominating Cycladic white of Chrissopigi. Full story comming soon… Stay tuned!
