“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

Agia Marina Ekali

The empty canvas was now becoming our playground once again. 

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.

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.

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 Photography Kifissia

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.

Φωτογράφιση γάμου Αθήνα // Ένας γάμος στο Μουσείο Οίνου

Γάμος στο Μουσείο Οίνου

Φωτογράφιση γάμου Αθήνα

” Ήμουν έτοιμη να πέσω στα κύματα, όταν πέρασε ξαφνικά ένα θαλασσοπούλι και μου ψιθύρισε:

“Έι ψιτ… εσένα μιλάω.
Μου παράγγειλε η ζωή να σου δώσω ένα φιλί.”

Μια ιστορία γεμάτη εικόνες

H μαγεία της φωτογραφίας βρίσκεται στον τρόπο που ο καθένας μας βλέπει και αντιλαμβάνεται τον κόσμο, έναν κόσμο που ουσιαστικά κρύβεται μέσα μας και σταδιακά ξεδιπλώνεται, αντανακλάται στον χώρο και στον χρόνο. Δεν είναι τίποτε άλλο από συναισθήματα. Στην πραγματικότητα φωτογραφίζεις τον ίδιο σου τον εαυτό, τον τρόπο που αντιλαμβάνεσαι τον κόσμο, την ομορφιά, την αγάπη.
Αυτό κάνει τη φωτογραφία γάμου μια τόσο μαγική τελετουργία. Μια πρόκληση και ένα καθήκον να αφηγηθείς, άλλη μια ιστορία μέσα από τα δικά του μάτια, για να αφυπνίσεις κρυμμένα, φωτεινά, αδρανή συναισθήματα.

Κάποιες φορές η φωτογραφία είναι μια πραγματικότητα τόσο λεπτή που γίνεται πιο πραγματική από την πραγματικότητα

Άλφρεντ Στίγκλιτζ

Μια πραγματικότητα, που με την πάροδο του χρόνου, και όσο απομακρύνεσαι από το γεγονός, αποκτάει μια άξια ανεκτίμητη.

Πάντα μας εντυπωσιάζει το πόσο κοντά βρίσκεσαι με τους ανθρώπους που φωτογραφίζεις, πόσο άμεση είναι η ομορφιά που μοιράζεσαι, πόσα συναισθήματα ξεδιπλώνονται μπροστά σου. Μια πρόκληση, κάθε φορά, να γυρίσεις πίσω με εικόνες που θα έχουν έντονο χαρακτήρα.

Μερικές φορές το σύμπαν συνωμοτεί, και έτσι ξαφνικά, σε μια ματιά, σε μια στιγμή, όλη η ζωή γίνεται χρώμα, γίνεται αγάπη, γίνεται φως. Και πια δεν μπορείς να φανταστείς, ούτε μια στιγμή  χωρίς τον άλλον.

Και εμείς είμαστε κοντά τους για να πούμε άλλη μια αληθινή ιστορία αγάπης. Για να φωτογραφίσουμε την κάθε στιγμή, με την αξία της στο παρόν, και τη σημασία της στο μέλλον, επιδιώκοντας να κάνουμε πάντα κάτι ξεχωριστό, όπως ξεχωριστό είναι πάντα το κάθε ζευγάρι μας.

Και να ξέρετε δεν μας τρόμαξαν οι καταιγίδες, ούτε οι απειλές του Παπά να φύγει επειδή η νύφη άργησε. Λίγο μόνο, η ιλιγγιώδης ταχύτητα του ετοιμοπόλεμου πατέρα της νύφης, που μας προσπέρασε στο δρόμο και μπροστά στα έκπληκτα ματιά όλων, έφθασε στο Μουσείο Οίνου πριν από εμάς :-)

Ο Στέλιος και η Λαμπρινή επέβαλαν το χαμόγελο τους στα ευτράπελα της ημέρας. Και μοιραστήκαν με φίλους και αγαπημένους, όλη αυτή την υπέροχη διάθεση, που κατέληξε σε ένα επικό πάρτι μέχρι τελικής πτώσης.
Μας παρέσυραν να το ζήσουμε όλο.

Wedding Photography Athens // Sandra & Romain

Elopement Photographer Athens

// Sandra & Romain //

 

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote, to travel, is to live.”

Hans Christian Andersen

“Every single world we’ve visited isn’t just random – it’s the result of countless choices, all of them combining to create a new reality. You and I have been given an infinity of chances, and that’s so much more than mot people will ever get – but in the end we get to live in only one world, and that’s the world we make. I want us to create that world together.” 

“A million Worlds with you”. and You. And we, do not believe it is by chance that we come across you. We, also believe it is by choice and not by chance that we change our circumstances, to create these very uniquely intimate experiences that are translated into images, that speak of the heart, to the heart. We get to meet people that have come from the other edge of the world, to trust their secrets, their concerns, to share their dreams with us. And this is an undeniable privilege we hold precious and is the sole motivation to our inspiration and drive. We dream to explore, to experience, and to go beyond. To capture life through new eyes each time, new colors, new light and to become.

// The elopement photo shoot in Athens //

 

Sandra and Romain. Crossed borders and bridged distances between their worlds and ours. And it was like we had known them forever. From France to Hong Kong, carrying with them dreams to travel the world, their wings of love, and two very special, very tiny teddy bears. Two destinations marked their paths. One of them was Athens. Athina. Our ever controversial city and the name of a goddess. A city with a heritage of a classical era, so evident in the center.

We spent time with them, we talked a lot, we shared love for this part of the world, we created memories, photographs and bonds. We can endlessly scout and photograph in this city, with the challenging light. As we were strolling beyond the streets of the theater of Herod, Sandra stopped and mentioned the amazing color of the sky. It was the bluest blue youve ever seen, and full of hope and smells. Later in the day along with our mood came the shades of orange, to colour us with hope and yet more dreams to keep us going. Then, “the sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.”

We called it a day… not able to resist dinner under the starry sky with the sight of the parthenon right there in front of our eyes and we made plans for the next destination. Mykonos.

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote, to travel, is to live.”

Hans Christian Andersen

 

As photographers we often measure our moments in hundredths of seconds. As a result we are regularly faced with the undeniable truth that missed moments are gone forever. 

It is through moments and their fragments, piece by piece, image after image that we breath life to our stories. Stories with special meaning that speak to the heart.

Emotion equals life equals association equals impact. It is the sense of connection when viewing an image that is so important to us. To take photographs that feel alive, that speak to you, that  make an immediate connection with your feelings and your visual memories. This makes our stories of primary importance through the  demanding challenge of aesthetics in the composition and style.

We stay restless and treat each wedding as our first one. We like to re invent our selves through every image. To discover and  experience with you every small detail that is important to you, and  to guide you through the day as your trusted friends. We like to make fresh photos. Unique. As unique as you are. And for that we let ourselves immerse in this experience with you. Thank you for your trust.

Paris day after Album Presentation // Elena & Nikos

Wedding Photographer Paris // We had the time of our Life!

Τι κάνει κάθε γάμο ξεχωριστό; Μοναδικό και ανεπανάληπτο;
Οι άνθρωποι του. Τα χαμόγελα, οι ματιές, οι σφιχτές ειλικρινείς αγκαλιές και τα δάκρυα στα μάτια. Η χαρά και η ενέργεια που όλοι κρατάνε φυλαγμένη για μια τέτοια ξεχωριστή ημέρα.

Η Έλενα και ο Νίκος οργάνωσαν το γάμο τους στο Κιάτο. Δίπλα στη θάλασσα. Κάτω από τα χιονισμένα βουνά. Όπως τους ταίριαζε, με πολλή αγάπη. Και εμείς βέβαια δεν τους αφήσαμε σε ησυχία. Aπλές όσο και συνθέτες οι ερωτήσεις μας… Χείμαρος συναισθημάτων οι απαντήσεις. Γιατί αυτός είναι ο Νίκος και αυτή είναι η Έλενα. Και οι δυο μαζί ένα πυροτέχνημα.

Η εναλλαγή από την ένταση στην ηρεμία, και η ανάγκη τους να εναλλάσσονται. Αυτό το πάθος για ζωή, βρήκαμε κοιτώντας τα βουνά η βυθίζοντας το βλέμμα μας στο απόλυτο γαλάζιο της χειμωνιάτικης θάλασσας.

Το “μαζί” τους βρήκε με ένα τραγούδι και έναν χορό – έτσι όπως ταιριάζει να είναι για πάντα η ζωή τους. Ένας ατέλειωτος χορός.

Βρεθήκαμε κοντά τους, μοιραστήκαμε τη χαρά τους και νιώσαμε σαν να τους ξέραμε για πάντα. Γιατί έτσι δένονται οι άνθρωποι μεταξύ τους. Χορεύοντας στη μουσική που αγαπάνε.

“Now with passion in our eyes
There’s no way we could disguise it
Secretly
So we take each other’s hand
‘Cause we seem to understand
The urgency
Just remember
You’re the one thing
I can’t get enough of
So I’ll tell you something
This could be love because” 

Το να προσπαθήσεις να παρακολουθήσεις, να αντιληφθείς και να καταγράψεις όλο αυτό τον καταιγισμό συναισθημάτων απαιτεί όλη την ενέργεια που έχεις. Η ανταμοιβή έρχεται όταν προσπαθήσεις κομμάτι, κομμάτι, δευτερόλεπτο την κάθε φορά να

συνθέσεις την πραγματικότητα της ημέρας όπως εσύ την αντιλήφθηκες. Μέσα από τα μάτια και την ψυχή σου. Εμείς αφήνουμε στην άκρη το φωτογράφος γάμου και κρατάμε το φίλοι. Γιατί έτσι νιώσαμε δίπλα στα παιδιά.

Wedding photography Folegandros // Destination weddings in Greece

Lost in a Paradise

Wedding photography Folegandros

// Wedding in the bright white of Folegandros //

Folegandros is a very special kind of island, that demands and welcomes a special breed of people, like hose who long for the summer burn of the sun on their salty faces.
We were not  surprised to find out  that In 2005 an article appeared in Conde Naste Traveler which called Folegandros ‘Greece’s most beautiful undiscovered island’ or something quite close to that but this might well be an understatement.
Getting there is not as easy as for the other mainstream Greek islands,

but the reward awaits you for getting in the trouble.

In the off-season periods there are only two or three ferry boats a week. There are many more during the peak season of summer, but ufortunately  no one is certain  until the summer actually arrives, which makes booking hotels a little difficult. But you can estimate that even  if there is no daily boat,  there will definitely be one 5 days a week.

// Wedding Photography Folegandros //

During our Folegandros wedding we attended a pre- wedding party in Agios Nikolaos beach. Depending on the month you visit it can feel a little like a castaway beach and the hippy vibe is welcoming an interesting mixture of people.!There is a small restaurant on the beach with delicious meze (Greek for delicacies) you will absolutely enjoy.
We visited the Panagia church not only for the wedding ceremony but also for an after day session  that we really loved. And we have to comment on the wedding party in the three squares of Chora whose vibes is still remembered

as it spread through the whole island to celebrate the newlyweds  until the daybreak.

If you are thinking to get married in Folegandros get in touch with us. We will be more than happy to be your wedding photographers in Folegandros and document each moment for you. A good story always deserves the appropriate storyteller! And we will be by your side. For wedding photography and cinematography that will always remind you your happy days on the island.
And since you are in the vicinity just leaving a word, to end this text: Kimolos :-)

// Planning your wedding in Folegandros //

If you are considering to plan your wedding in Folegandros, then you have to take care of several practical  issues that may arise; like where can i store the flowers before my wedding;  but then again this is Greece, hospitality is a priority and everybody will be willing to help you out.

Chora is the main town of Folegandros and one of the oldest traditional medieval towns in the Cyclades; the buildings stand close to one another creating the external wall of the castle (kastro). The Chora, closed to car and motorcycle traffic, has a unique centre of three squares in a row, with trees under which you can have a wedding reception you will never forget. Please arrange for enough tsipouro to treat passing by locals and tourists!

The beautiful church of Panagia is the most famous church of Folegandros. It is located on a fabulous spot above Chora offering excellent view to the island and the sea. A stone zigzag path starts from Pounda Square Chora and goes up to the church in about a 15 min walk. As a bride or a groom you have to wear appropriate shoes and have a minimum of stamina. Or just take your time! This is one of the most special churches in the Aegean as the architecture of the church is traditional Cycladic and the exterior is whitewashed. This is a one-aisle basilica with many domes and a tall bell-tower. The interior has fine frescoes, a marble throne for the archbishop and a marble icon screen. In the past, the church was the katholikon of a female monastery.
