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.

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.

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!

Photographer Ktima 48 // Myrto & Niels

Myrto & Niels: Their wedding in Ktima 48

Wedding Photographer Ktima 48

Wedding in Ktima 48

It had to be Amsterdam.

It was obvious from the first “Dark and Stormy” sip at Bukowski (compliments to Pepe). We have to admit that we have a soft spot for the Dutch, or mixed couples that plan their weddings in Greece. Apparently, Niels found out about that, and came to live just a block away from our Studio. As you can well understand, being their storytellers was inevitable. That, and our mutual love for Milos.

Niels is the most Greek Dutch we have ever met, with so much potential, to be even Greeker.

Myrto, tops in our list of #bestsmilingeyes of the year, certainly fell for that. They both share a raw unedited honesty that makes the simplest things seem ridiculously important.

Their exclamations of enthusiasm and joy, the impulsive expressions of love has been an endless inspiration for our photography. And it was in the air, throughout the days we spent together in Athens and Milos, they never tired or hesitated to express this genuine heart for life. For us, this is the most important ingredient for relationships that last a lifetime or even better “panta mazi”.

Day after wedding photography session in Milos

Milos Wedding Photographer

Let’s not forget to talk about the time we spend together in Milos. We visited Sarakiniko for a wedding photography session and went around the island on locations we chose especially for them. A small sample follows, but keep in mind this is only a sneak peek. More soon!

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. 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.

Photographer Ktima 48

We received this little yellow note a few days after the wedding:

“Angela & George,
The effort you put during the wedding, the commitment you showed, the excitement (followed by loud sounds of wooow) you carried & the positive attitude you had stood out to us along with the extra mile you went, that we CANNOT wait for the review!
M&N”

Note: Niels visited our studio twice to confirm the enthusiasm he originally felt about our albums, therefore this story must now go to pause mode, as we have much to do to live up to our reputation :-)

We CANNOT wait to show them what really happened to them.
