STUNNING ELOPEMENT ON SANTORINI
Today on the blog we feature a stunning wedding on the favourite wedding spot, Santorini island, shared with us by Vangelis Photography. From the stunning and minimal wedding dress to the breathtaking setting of Santorini, this couple's portrait session is beyond beautiful!
From the photographer: The village of Oia is the epitome of what Santorini is. Charming, picturesque and sophisticated this is where a visitor can find luxurious hotels, exquisite restaurants, art galleries as well as a wide range of shops in its narrow alleys. The typical architecture of the houses carved in the volcanic rocks, the stunning views from the edge of the caldera and the world renowned sunsets make Oia one of the most photogenic villages in Santorini, while a wedding in Oia is popular with couple that want to exchange vows in the most picture perfect location.
Elisabeth and Chris live in Los Angeles but decided to elope in Santorini and Oia in particular after a trip to Turkey. Their intimate wedding in Oia took place in Aspaki Hotel which is situated right in front of the famous three blue domes of Oia and of course has wonderful cliffside views over the Aegean Sea.
After the end of the ceremony i set off with the couple for our portrait session during the golden hour (the couple of hours just before sunset when the light is the best for photos). We had lots of time available till sunset which gave us the chance to visit several different locations around the village. Oil is like a playground for a photographer like me who loves using architectural forms in his photos and puts so much emphasis on the ideas of symmetry and balance.
