An amazing Pre Wedding Journey with a Chinese Couple

santorini pre wedding photography

It was another beautiful day on Santorini when Alvin and Kiki prepared to capture one of the most memorable moments of their life together. The couple had crossed seas and traveled across continents to our gorgeous island so that they could make their big day even more special, and I was truly delighted to be able to be a part of the couple’s celebration. I joined the pair for their pre-wedding photo shoot on the island, excited about the opportunity to help the couple capture some truly precious moments.

The Gorgeous Bride And Groom

Alvin arrived for his evening photo shoot in a perfect tuxedo and with an energetic smile. He was so genuine and enthusiastic that he made it a breeze to capture the perfect shot. Meanwhile, this beautiful bride Kiki looked like a real princess in her dazzling white gown wearing a crown of fresh flowers and holding a fantastic bouquet. She was keen to shoot near the famous blue domed churches of Oia – one of the best-known and most picturesque spots on the whole island.

Santorini’s blue domed churches hold a special significance, not only in the hearts of the local people of the island, but also of the many visitors who come here to capture some of their life’s most memorable moments. This place has a very special and unique history, having survived centuries of pirate invasions, earthquakes and combats with its spectacular architecture and artwork still remaining intact. What better place to reflect the flawless love of the happy couple?

A Once in a Lifetime Experience

Not only do the blue domed churches hold a mythical significance, they also add color and life to any photograph. It’s no wonder that couples just like Alvin and Kiki flock to Santorini from all over the world to capture significant moments in their lives, from proposals to wedding ceremonies, by these famous buildings. They are truly the perfect backdrop to any once in a lifetime occasion.

Alvin and Kiki’s beautiful bond as a couple really came to the fore in the photos that I took in this charming spot. We took the opportunity to move around the whole village, capturing countless priceless images that really express the couple’s beautiful love story. They are just one more couple who have discovered that Santorini has its own magic power to make love even more powerful and romance even stronger!

Arranging Your Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot

Are you thinking of coming to Santorini for your own pre-wedding photo shoot? There are few places anywhere in the world which can offer such stunning scenery and beautiful landscapes. If you’re looking for a pre-wedding photo shoot photographer to capture this special time in your lives, don’t hesitate to contact me. I would be delighted to have the opportunity to bring a little more magic into your special relationship and to help preserve your memories of these wonderful moments in images that will last a lifetime.

    wow!! I really like the photos.. You’re just so professional. I like how you have captured the tiny details. You work alone or you have a group helping you? this work is just great!!

      Nice to see you here Lasseno. 🙂 It depends on how big or small the event is, the location and also depends on my clients’ requests. 2 photographers are always better than 1, since we can cover more from the ceremony. For commercial works I usually have an assistant with me to hold the flash.

    for couples come on the way from asia, and asked you to have photos taken for them. you do know how important it is for them, in other words, how much trust they have in you, you didnt make them down! well done and keep it up !

    Good day to you!
    I would like to ask for a quotation to do a pre-wedding photoshoot in Santorini and Mykonos.
    Me and my girlfriend are chinese Malaysian. We will arrive in Santorini on 19th April 2016 and leaving on 23rd April 2016. During this 5days period, i would like to have our pre-wedding photoshoot in Santorini and Mykonos. Also, i would like to arrange for a video / Photoshoot during my proposal to her. Probably 19th evening. I would like to have only digital copies, raw or edited, please quote me a price and let me know how much time needed to cover Santorini and Mykonos. One day each is sufficient to cover all the key shooting locations? As this is my first time to Santorini, please furnish me with your professional suggestion.

    Hope you are doing well.

    My husband & I are traveling to Santorini next week from India (along with also visiting Athens and Turkey). While we got married almost 5 years back, we never got a pre-wedding photo shoot done and I was hoping to get a couple photo shoot done now (better late than never I guess) during this trip in Santorini since it is such a gorgeous place. The date that works for us is 27th May (with 28th as the back-up option).

    While looking for photographers online, I came across your website & I just loved your work. It would be fantastic if you could do our photo-shoot. I am looking for something romantic and cheerful, while not being over the top. I believe half a day (or maybe less) would be enough for the shoot.

    Please let me know you availability along with your package for the shoot. I know it is extremely last minute but would be great if this works out 🙂

    Awaiting your reply.

    I am writing to you after I found your studio on google while I was looking for a photographer in Santorini. We are a married couple living in Paris. We would like to visit Santorini the first week of September. I wanted to capture our time together in Santorini. I was not happy with my wedding photographs which was not upto my expectation. So, ever since I got married, I wanted to get a photoshoot done wearing different beautiful attires in different style. So, I decided I should make use of this trip and make my wish come true. So, I looked for a best photographer in Santorini and I found you.
    Could you please let me know how much it will cost for this photoshoot please?
    Looking forward to hear from you.
    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Kind Regards

    Hi there,
    My wife and I will be sailing into Santorini on 8th October aboard Celebrity Equinox.
    The 8th October will be our 45th wedding anniversary and I would like to try to
    organise a private tour for my wife and I plus her sister and brother in law.
    My wife is really scared of heights and animals and therefore the normal route via
    the cable car or by donkey are totally out – so would it be possible to arrange a
    trip with yourselves making use of the water taxi to get us to your vehicle and
    guide/driver? If that is possible I would like to arrange a 4 hour island trip taking
    in Oia and a couple of “wedding photograph” locations and possibly a light lunch
    stop before returning us to Fira for our descent back down to the ship’s tenders.
    If this sounds possible I would welcome a quote as to the price and what your
    arrangements for us would be.
    Yours in expectation
