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.

    My husband and I are looking to do a couple’s photo shoot while we are in beautiful Santorini. I am not sure what to call it, really, as it is not an engagement or pre wedding session.. We have actually never done a photo shoot before, not even for our wedding! I guess we are hoping to capture a bit of “us” in lovely place. Any advice you can give us would be greatly appreciated!

    I think we are looking for a half day session, outdoors, to take advantage of what Santorini has to offer. Please let us know if you are available to help and guide us.

    Thank you very much for your time, and we look forward to hearing from you!

    This is Alex from China, we will stay in Santorini between Aug.8th-12th, while we are planning to make our pre-wedding photos with my girl friend during one of those days.
    I am feeling your gold package or majestic package could fit our request very well.

    To get clear about everything:
    1. Make-up: Especially my girl friend, do you offer make-up service free or charge, or she has to make up by herself?
    2. Dressing: Do you offer suits for me and evening dress & wedding dress for my girl friend free or charge, or shall we bring everything?
    3. Number of dress in the tour: How many sets of dress can we change in the tour, is there a criteria?

    Waiting for your answers, thanks a lot!

    Hi my name is Rima. Santorini holds a very special place in my heart as I’ve always wanted to visit this paradise on earth and i did last year. I honestly believed I was in heaven which is why my partner and i would like our pre-wedding photography session here. We have been through so many ups and downs (which I’ll bore you with some other time), but having some shots for our pre-wedding will make my dream come true. I stayed in imerovigli last time and it was beautiful however oia was equally gorgeous so these two would be my preference. We have not decided on our wedding date yet but very likely back home next year. Please help us make our dream come true. Please kindly let me know what the price quotation would be. We will arrange our own gowns, suits and makeup and hair.

    Hi, a great day to you.
    We are planning to have our pre wedding photography at Santorini in this coming OCT/NOV.
    I read the price in your webpage & clarify something as below:
    1) the package price only for photography & we need to prepare our own dressing & cloth?
    2) we are not familiar with the place, so we appreciate if you can recommend some nice places for our photography & advise where is the best location for us to book our accommodation.
    3) if we would like to get the package, do we need to do advance transfer to you or can we make payment when we arrive Santorini?

    Thanks & looking forward to hear from you soon.

    My husband and I would love a couples photo shoot in two locations in Santorini. We would love this to be on the caldera with beautiful churches, Santorini architecture in the background. we are thinking Oia and somewhere else but please let us know what you recommend.

    Early morning on the 3rd of August is preferable but please let us know if just after sunrise is a good time for photos?

    Interested to have pre-wedding photo shoots in Santorini and nearby beautiful islands such as Mykonos. If you offer make-up/hair and dress/suit rental service, please add on for my consideration. Dates are not fixed yet, but intends to have it in late 2018 (Oct, Nov). Is it the best time for outdoor photo taking? Please suggest and provide me the quote for available packages for my consideration.

    Im looking to do a pre-wedding photoshoot. Myself and my partner are coming to Santorini for a holiday and think it would be nice to have a photoshoot done. We are staying at the argo hotel and arrive on the 19/06/19. We fly back on the 26/06/19. Would you be available to carry out this photoshoot with us. The first 4 days of us being there would be ideal, as after, we have a wedding to attend. Please also let me know a price guide for your service.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
