It’s always a joy to see a happy couple, and recently I was lucky enough to meet a beautiful couple who were in Santorini on vacation. Laura and Paul had booked a day trip from Paris to Santorini especially for their two hour vacation photoshoot and had hired me to be their personal photographer for the day – there’s only so much you can do with an iPhone and a selfie stick!
The couple were keen to create a stunning photographic portfolio with the traditional village of Oia as its background. Laura is a professional photographer herself, so she already knew how to pose perfectly for her vacation photos. From the smile to the lighting and from the dress to the composition, Laura knew exactly what she wanted from the experience and Paul was more than happy to oblige.
Traveling Together Makes Love Even Stronger
Although the couple married some time ago, Laura and Paul still enjoy a very strong bond and a close connection – this was clear throughout their Santorini vacation photoshoot. It was a true pleasure to be their personal travel photographer for the day and to help the couple to realize their photographic dreams.
Paul had fallen in love with the island of Santorini as a young boy after seeing the island on television. As a young adult and then again as a grown man, he had explored and discovered the island and, as he stood on a rooftop admiring the panoramic views over the island, he realized that he was going through exactly the same kind of journey of exploration and discovery with Laura. Just as he had once discovered this beautiful country, he was now exploring and discovering life with his beautiful wife.
Heights of Bravery in Santorini
The couple have absolutely no fear of heights or depths, and thanks to their bravery it was possible to capture glorious vacation photographs near Santorini’s dramatic cliffs. With the couple standing around 60 feet above sea level, these were risky shots, and yet the couple were fearless! During our two-hour itinerary, the couple enjoyed a romantic and energetic tour of the island, and as a result I was able to take some inspiring and memorable images of the pair as they experienced the wonder of this stunning island.
