Santorini Pre Wedding Photography Shooting

prewedding photoshoot Oia

I regularly photograph couples from all over Asia and the USA who come to Santorini for their pre-wedding photo shoots. But what can you expect from your Santorini pre-wedding photography session? Essentially, it is an engagement photo package but with wedding dresses and gowns. Usually, we carry out a pre-wedding shoot a few months before the big day itself, and the couple show the pictures as part of a video wall at their ceremony.

Making First Contact

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Wei Bing from Malaysia, who wanted to know if I would be available to do their outdoor pre-wedding photoshoot in Santorini. She told me that visiting Santorini had long been a dream of hers, and that the day before her soon-to-be-husband, Kenny, had surprised her with a wonderful gift – flight tickets to come to our paradise island. The couple were looking for a skilled Santorini photographer to get the perfect pre-wedding shots and to experience a truly memorable day. Of course, I was more than happy to oblige!

Pre-Wedding Photography Around The Island

Wei Bing was entirely ready and fully prepared for her Santorini pre-wedding photo shoot. She had selected a number of outfits and accessories to wear – she knew exactly what she was looking for from her photos! It was such a happy day – the couple couldn’t stop smiling – and it made from a wonderfully relaxed and joyful experience for all of us.

The couple wanted to have their pre-wedding shots taken from some of Santorini’s highest locations with spectacular views over the island and the Aegean Sea. There is no better way to catch the endless beauty of sea and sky where they overlap and become one. It was delighted to be able to make their dream come true.

During their five-hour wedding photoshoot package we visited all of the island’s most beautiful locations, starting at Firostefani then moving on to Fira before finally catching the sunset in the stunning traditional Greek village of Oia, famous throughout the world for its white sugar cube houses and blue domed churches.

The Wedding Outfits

We began with several pre-wedding portrait photos of the couple. Bing was wearing an elegant Chinese white dress and a gorgeous floral wreath in her hair. She was more than a Chinese bride, she looked like an ancient Greek goddess. Greece and China have so much mythology in common! She changed dresses twice more, with one being a stunning pale pink dress that turned her into a true Disney princess!

The Happy Ending

It was a true pleasure to work with such a lovely couple and to make their pre-wedding photography dreams come true.

If you are coming to Santorini and are looking for a photographer for your pre-wedding photo shoot don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to helping you capture these precious moments in your relationship so you can look back on them with joy and fondness in your happy future life together.
