An ideal marriage proposal in Santorini island of Greece

santorini marriage proposal
This is by far the most unique place to propose to a girl! Santorini is an awesome destination and amazing place to pop the question!

Robert Fulghum quoted in True Love, “We’re all a little weird, and life it a little weird too. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we can join hands and fall into a state of mutually satisfying weirdness. Some call it Love. And the others call it true love”. These were the words used by a handsome young man, Neal, while proposing the woman of his life, Jaya! The trip was orchestrated by Neal, originally from India, but now a successful businessman and citizen of London. His future wife, Jaya gladly followed his heartthrob without knowing his intent. With three days spent at Santorini for a marriage proposal photo shoot, this session was the best thing to ever happen to them — at least before the D-day.

A heartfelt surprise

Neal, had realized that marriage proposals happen once in a lifetime (for most people). So he did all he could to make it the most memorable one. That’s why he carefully captured his marriage proposal in front of the camera. Jaya considered their trip to Santorini as a joyful vacation and a perfect place to escape from her busy life in the UK. And the moment came! With a breathtaking view, Neal kneed down and popped the question to his future wife! Jaya answered with an emphatic “yes” as he slipped the ring through her finger. Shortly, they sealed it with a kiss, and that was it. All that transpired, I captured it and they loved it.

The setup

The table was decorated with red roses, an awesome bouquet and a few candles. The hotel stuff carefully placed the cutlery on the table along with 2 glasses of wine. The local wine was going to accompany the dinner after saying the coveted YES. In addition to that, the lanterns around the table were going to light the place and their love during Santorini sunset.

The heart-melting moment

Post Proposal Shoot

Then, eventually Jaya somehow discovered me (I was hiding to capture the original moment) and this is how a wonderful time next to an amazing Indian couple started. We continued by taking some shots of the engagement ring.


 The Santorini photographer’s thoughts

Santorini is one of the top holiday destinations, which cannot be found anywhere else in this world. This island does not only brace itself up for a preferred wedding destination, but also pre weddings and marriage proposal photo shootings. The Asians; Hong Kong, Japanese, Indian etc.- take pride in having pre wedding photography in santorini; they come in their numbers. Complementary services that make photo journeys thick. The pre wedding and marriage proposal sessions done in Santorini are not complete without a make – up and hair styling artist. They complement the photo sessions. The availability of make-up and hair styling services make the location a “go-to” place. Even if you require a specialization like an Asian make-up artist; they’re readily available. By having a top-notch photography in Greece that captures your moments will be worth it and an experience to relish in a long while.

    I am going to be proposing to my girlfriend while in santorini. She doesn’t know this is happening. Was wondering how much it would cost to have you with us to not only capture the moment i propose but also take some engagement photos. I am student on a budget and really wanted to make this special. My budget is around 200- 300 euros for two hours I will be there from may 14-18. I am flexible on days and was thinking any day Sunday through Tuesday. Please let me know if we could work something out. I Look forward to hearing from you.

    I’m emailing from The Proposers; we are a marriage proposal planning company based in London UK. We have a client who is coming to Santorini with his girlfriend to propose. They will be staying at the Sofia Suites in Imerovigli and hiring a private terrace which we will decorate for the proposal. They will then enjoy a meal for two on the terrace.

    We need a photographer to capture the moment and saw your website and loved your work. We were wondering if you would be available on the evening of Saturday May 13th. We would require photos of the terrace and décor before the proposal, then pictures of the special moment including her reaction and then some photos of the couple after the proposal. As the proposal itself only lasts a few minutes you would be needed no more than an hour on the day.

    After the proposal we would just require the photos to be edited and put into a format so they can be downloaded online by the client. We ask for high res and web res photos.

    I look forward to hearing for you,

    Any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask

    Hello, my girlfriend and I are traveling to Santorini between November 9 and November 14, and I was planning on proposing to her while there. We’ve been together for about 6 years and it is long past due. I love the white roof tops there and the romantic setting, and would love to propose to her there. My dates are flexible between the dates we’ll be there.

    Thank you,

    Hey I’m coming from Charlotte, NC, United States and I am planning on proposing to my girlfriend and would love for you to photograph it. I have never been to Santorini so I would like some suggestions on where and when I should do it.

    Hi Kristo,

    My name is Jacob, I am proposing to my girlfriend Katherine in Santorini on June 6th, and I wanted to see if you were available to help me capture the proposal? We have been dating for 4 years, and her family is originally from Greece, so when we picked Santorini for vacation I figured it would be a great opportunity!

    If you are available, my idea for the proposal is to find a beautiful spot that is private overlooking the ocean and have some champagne ready for afterwards. I would also like to make it as much of a surprise as possible, so I was thinking about doing it when the light would be best for pictures. I would love to hear any recommendations or advice you may have for this!

    Please let me know if you are available June 6th, and what package you might recommend for the occasion (I was thinking the gold package?), also please let me know what I would need to do to start moving forward!

    Thank you for your time, I hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi Kristo, nice to e-meet you! I wanted to get in touch as my girlfriend and I have booked to visit Santorini at Oia Canavas Suites in April. What my girlfriend doesn’t know is that I’m planning on proposing on 25th April and have booked the Panorama Balcony for dinner. I’m looking for a professional photographer to take some photos of the proposal and your work looks really good. It would be great to get more of an understanding of what your package includes and pricing.

    Kind regards

    My girlfriend and I are visiting Santorini for our 2nd year anniversary and I wanted to surprise her with a small photo session (approx. 1 hour). She loves taking pictures and I think she would really appreciate the upgrade from selfie/tripod to get some beautiful pictures of us in Santorini, specifically Oia.

    I am looking for a small package that would include photos around Oia (based on your recommendation of pretty backgrounds for photos). The date would be either October 3 or 4 when we will be staying Oia. If you are available for either date, it would be great if you could provide me with a recommended package with details including pricing, number of photos (edited and non-edited), and maybe some sample photos in Oia.

    p.s. There is also a very small chance I may propose during the trip and may time it during the photo session but that can be discussed later.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    I’m looking to propose to my girlfriend in September in Santorini and would like to use you to capture the moment.

    I’ve been reading your blog and some of the pictures look amazing. I’ve never been to Santorini but my partner has always wanted to go. Are you able to recommend some private places where it would be easy for you to capture the moment but also somewhere with amazing views?

    Can you confirm how much a two hour slot would be for the proposal? Would that be enough time for you to capture everything?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hello! My girlfriend and I are staying in an Airbnb with a beautiful private balcony on the Oia coast. I plan to propose there on our first night (probably close to sunset?) and would really like to have the moment professionally captured. Please let me know if you might be available during this time!
