A Memorable First Year Wedding Anniversary in Santorini

Falling in love is a beautiful experience. The journey will become a lot more special with time. As a professional photographer, I have understood the real meaning in these words by snapping many couples who celebrate their first year wedding anniversary. My most recent anniversary photography session was with Miral and Karim.

The duo approached me few weeks before their first year wedding anniversary! Karim sent me a mail, describing his needs and wants. He declared his love for Miral and stated that he wished to surprise his wife with an astonishing photograph session. The couple had already enjoyed a wonderful engagement photo shoot in Santorini in the past. Conversely, he wanted their first year anniversary in the same glorious island. They were aware of the location, its beauty, colorful nature and traditional elements.

The right time for a perfect snap!

The beautiful couple preferred an evening photo shoot session. As the sun prepared the sky for the evening, Miral and Karim became exceptionally intimate! They were dressed in casual outfits. Karim wore a stripped T-Shirt and white shorts. While, Miral opted for a blue dress that suited her wavy hair and charming smile. The scintillating photo shoot began in the Caldera cliffs, with Santorini buildings as its background. With the Mediterranean Sea in one side and buildings in the other, we clicked a precious snap.

As time passed, we clicked many photos in the streets. Once again, with Santorini’s picturesque buildings in the background, we photographed the couple, as they walked down the roads. Miral wanted unique photos that are different from conventional portfolios. And, now we halted near Home Made Desserts. Here, Karim kissed Miral gently and was prepared to buy yummy chocolates for his loved one!

A peaceful Shot

A momentous shot was captured around 6 pm! By this time, we reached the Blue Domed Churches and the couple settled peacefully on the white walls. Here we took a relaxed shot, with Miral on Karim’s lap. In the next frame, Karim carried Miral and began his first year wedding anniversary celebrations.

The Antique Background

The final click was captured near the stone buildings. This is an antique building, known for its architectural and historical significance. As the couple amused over the destination’s flowers and stones, we captured a huge array of pictures.

One year on and I wish many more to go!

    We are from Malaysia. We go Santorini for our 11th wedding anniversary. Thinking want to have 5 hours photo session.
    Can I know what is the mean of edited photo? Is it call retouch , like edit to look slimmer and some artistic retouch? Or edited is merely light adjustment and crop?

    My husband and I will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary on Santorini Sept. 17 through Sept. 25. (arrive Sept. 17, depart Sept. 25). I would like to do a Silver session with you for photographs of us together and perhaps a few individual shots also. The only reserved time at this moment is we have a dinner reservation for Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. I would prefer a “twilight” time be included in our appointment if possible, but am happy to take recommendation from you.
    Thank you–Cynthia Beck

    Hello, my husband and I will be travelling to Santorini in September for our anniversary and I was hoping to find out about prices for an hour long photo session. We just want to get some pictures of the two of us with the beautiful scenery. We are staying in Oia and that is the area I would really like the photos to be taken. Could you please let me know how much this would cost and anything else I should know? We will be in Santorini from September 18-20. Thank you!

    I like to know if you are available for the 3 hour photography in June?
    My husband and i will arrive our hotel maybe around 4+pm on 6 June. We will stay at Imerovigli.
    We can only do the photoshoot either on late afternoon 6 June or 7 or 8 June.
    We will fly back to Athens on 9 June morning.

    Can you advice the price for 2-3 hour photo shoot ?

    Can you advice where are the locations we will go?
    Some of the locations I want is at the red beach, Oia village, Fira and the blue dome church (can’t remember name)

    Also, I prefer a sunset photo is possible?
    How many photos do we get?

    Our request is to have all the raw photos by the same day or latest the following day.
    We understand the edited photos may take time.

    We had a very bad experience where our wedding photographer two years ago did not provide our wedding video/ photos despite us paying full and did not answer all our calls / emails.
    Lucky we had some other photos. This is not a wedding photoshoot, but we hope to wear our wedding outfit (if it still fits), since we did not get good photos/videos from our real wedding

    Thank you

    We will be in Santorini from 3-7 July 2017. We would probably like to start the photoshoot in the late afternoon, and end with a sunset shoot. Looking at not more than 2-3 hours.

    My husband and I were looking to get a few photos taken of us during our visit in Santorini. We will be there on September 8 and 9 2019 (we don’t care which day/time between the two days) and would like at least one of the pictures by September 8 so we can share with our family and friends as this day is our anniversary. Could you please provide a quote for this? We were looking for something budget friendly. If you are not available or a higher price range do you have any recommendations for other photographers? We really appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Thank you,
