santorini vacation photographer

A Once upon a time vacation tour in Oia

A happy, blissful couple is a joy to see, and recently I was lucky to come across a beautiful pair in Santorini for their vacation photography session. The young couple booked a day trip from Paris to Santorini to conduct a 2-hour vacation photoshoot. So they hired me as their personal photographer for the day, since iPhone vacation photography wouldn’t do the job for them. The couple wanted to create a stunning portfolio with Oia as its background! To begin with, Laura, as a professional photographer herself, she knew how to pose for the vacation photos. From smiling, to lighting, to dressing, to composition, Laura had the competency to move fluidly with her partner in the photo snaps.

Traveling makes love stronger

Although the marriage was some time ago, their connection remained close and sacred. Thus, being their Santorini personal travel photographer was such a pleasure for me. Every moment together was like the blossoming of a brand new life. This thought came to mind as they traveled on this fun day tour to Greece. To Paul, the view of the island from a rooftop was representative of the exploration and discovery of their relationship. “I remember watching this paradise in the web and TV as a young boy, young adult, and a grown man. In the same way, Laura and I are exploring and discovering life together, just as I discovered this country” said Paul as he looked on with Laura at the wonderful city of streets and buildings.

Heights of Bravery in Santorini

The couple didn’t fear heights or depths! As can be seen, thanks to their bravery, we captured glorious vacation photographs near the cliffs of Santorini! In fact, this was a risky shot, where Paul and Laura were around 60 feet above sea level. We traveled to the destination by car and were able to accomplish the adventurous move in our 2-hour plan. Apart from being energetic and lively, the couple became exceptionally romantic in the cliffs. There is nothing as priceless and wonderful as a romantic couple in Santorini, for any vacation photographer! As they kissed and hugged with passion, I was able to take some inspiring snaps.

To conclude, I had a fantastic time in Santorini taking vacation photographs of Laura and Paul, and you can see from their faces how in love they are. Have a look through these beautiful photographs, and get in touch with me if you want your own.

    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,

We would like to have our pictures taken again this year, on the 29th or 30th of Aug if you are available. Could you send us some package options?

    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!

    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 ?
