A Fairytale Vacation In Oia

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.

    Their story Kristo can inspire everyone, even people that are disappointed from their experiences. They have certainly inspired you..your photographs are excellent, she looks like a Greek goddess. They look perfect and they match with the romantic scenery of Santorini with a very elegant way.

    Hi Helen. Thanks for your nice comment. The couple was a very easy going one and I really loved their story. I think that the lyrics of the ballad song “Have you ever really loved a woman?” match perfectly to the pictures above. Cheers, Kristo. 🙂

    Hello Kristo,

    My name is Ivy and my fiance and I are going to have our town hall marriage signing (no wedding ceremony) in Santorini.

    We will arrive Santorini on May 3rd and leave on May 7th. Therefore we would like to have our photo shooting any day between May 4th – May 6th.

    I’ll be 7 months pregnant by the time we are in Santorini. This will be our last romantic vacation before the baby is here…. We would like to record this precious moment under your camera lens and beautiful work… we want the photos to be elegant, fun, natural and sweet… really brings out who we are as a couple and truly represents us.

    I would like to have 3 different outfits change if possible and pictures in locations you recommend the best in Santorini

    1. Beach/bikini (to show off my baby belly)
    2. Casual wear (optional)
    3. Semi formal dress

    However, as we are having a baby coming shortly we don’t have a high budget to spend… ideally I would like to have the best package but for us as this last baby moon trip already was out of our financial planning…. so to be honest, we only have a budget of 450 euros max for photoshooting…I do struggle because I want my photos to be perfect (especially our first album with baby and last as gf n bf at my dream place Santorini)… please kindly share with me about your thoughts and ideas to see if its possible?

    Thank you very much and look forward to hear from you soon. Have a wonderful week ahead!

    Warmest regards,

    Hi! I realize this is a very last minute request, but my husband and I will be on vacation to Santorini next week and we just had the idea of doing some pictures! Nothing big, just maybe an hour session or so. What are your prices and would you happen to be available June 5 (morning or afternoon), 6, 7, or 8? I hope you have some availability!

  13. Trisha

    Me and my husband are visiting Santorini on 26th & 27th August, 2018. In your bronze package, can you split it into 2 shoots – one hour at Oia and one hour sunset photoshoot at Imerovigli near our hotel Sunny Villas, with the caldera view?

    Also, it is my birthday that I am celebrating in Santorini – is there any discount that you can provide us ? and do you know of any dress rentals that are affordable ?
