One of the real pleasures in my job is taking engagement photos while also showing off the awesomeness of Santorini. Regular followers of this photography blog will definitely know how much I love to shoot romantic portraits of couples. After all, being engaged is such a special part of a relationship, and the start of your journey down the aisle. As a Santorini Photographer, I often shoot engagement photography in Santorini. And I adore engagement shoots! I do this with so much passion and by using fun, yet creative photographic techniques. And this was one more thrilling couple portrait session! OMG!! It was a blast! Thus I just stood back, allowed the couple to them to be “them”, and took some top notch images all around Santorini! Great light, ideal locations and a model couple who can’t keep their hands off each other. Of course, I did some of my usual magic behind the lens. By the way, it was a windy sunny day and there was so much love in the air. That Greek island offers the best places for creating artistic images! With Tina and Vlad wearing their casual clothes, we ended to a surprising proposal of marriage! Just before that, we took some levitation images and a few fashion style ones which were so cool! Vlad and Tina your Santorini Wedding is going to be so much fun! Next year can’t come soon enough!
Incredible Engagement pictures at the most iconic spots
Wherever you look in Thira, the scenery is going to take your breath away. Because in every location there is something to capture your eye. It’s also very serene! Your mind’s troubles slip away once you land here! It’s amazing that, for a moment at least, you forget all your real life problems. My couples never feel uncomfortable in front of the camera. This is because I have a very easy and relaxed approached. In this couple shoot, I took my clients to several locations in Santorini for their engagement photos. Specifically, we covered the following iconic locations; Fira, Caldera, Blue Domed Churches and we ended the engagement photography in Oia. This is where Vlad popped the question having the glorious sunset as the backdrop. With a tremble voice he said the words that every girl wants to hear; “Tina, will you marry me?” And this is how it all started in Greece. In fact, I was so happy to photograph this marriage proposal in Santorini. Even more, it was the ideal ending of a summer engagement shoot in Greece that we will never forget!
