Wedding Photographer Ktima 48
Wedding in Ktima 48
It had to be Amsterdam.
It was obvious from the first “Dark and Stormy” sip at Bukowski (compliments to Pepe). We have to admit that we have a soft spot for the Dutch, or mixed couples that plan their weddings in Greece. Apparently, Niels found out about that, and came to live just a block away from our Studio. As you can well understand, being their storytellers was inevitable. That, and our mutual love for Milos.
Niels is the most Greek Dutch we have ever met, with so much potential, to be even Greeker.
Myrto, tops in our list of #bestsmilingeyes of the year, certainly fell for that. They both share a raw unedited honesty that makes the simplest things seem ridiculously important.
Their exclamations of enthusiasm and joy, the impulsive expressions of love has been an endless inspiration for our photography. And it was in the air, throughout the days we spent together in Athens and Milos, they never tired or hesitated to express this genuine heart for life. For us, this is the most important ingredient for relationships that last a lifetime or even better “panta mazi”.

Milos Wedding Photographer
Let’s not forget to talk about the time we spend together in Milos. We visited Sarakiniko for a wedding photography session and went around the island on locations we chose especially for them. A small sample follows, but keep in mind this is only a sneak peek. More soon!
Wedding photography does not have to look like wedding photography. It is all about relationships.
What makes the world of a difference, is the connection between people and the means by which you can spot, understand, experience and interpret these relationships. We summon creativity, courage, and the vision to bend, or very often break the rules. And there are no second chances. It takes hard preparation, precision organisation, and endless creativity. It takes all of these, but more, to even have a chance of delivering stunning results.
It is not about the lense or the camera, but the photographer behind it. You need to be brave and confident to cross boundaries to explore your world in others. But even more than that, we believe that what makes a photograph truly important is the experience it can deliver.
We received this little yellow note a few days after the wedding:
“Angela & George,
The effort you put during the wedding, the commitment you showed, the excitement (followed by loud sounds of wooow) you carried & the positive attitude you had stood out to us along with the extra mile you went, that we CANNOT wait for the review!
Note: Niels visited our studio twice to confirm the enthusiasm he originally felt about our albums, therefore this story must now go to pause mode, as we have much to do to live up to our reputation :-)
We CANNOT wait to show them what really happened to them.

The Wedding Shoes
It all probably started with Cinderella. Or maybe not. But shoes have escaped boxes and closets and have become a passion an obsession and a fetish.
Imagine their importance out of everyday life in the context of the most important day in your life. The day you join paths with your own prince and take your place by his side.
That will transform a seemingly plain photo into a fairy tale. It will reveal the expectation, the frustration and the deduction behind your choice. It will highlight your taste.
Imagine. They started off untouched, unmoved, lying carelessly, or not, in the middle of the room. Waiting to be done – or undone. Beauty untouched, unblemished and still. And they had a dream. To become the dream of a girls personal story, to wander around, to dance her away to lead her to her destiny. To be tied from your father’s trembling hands, to guide you through the tears of your loved ones. To be filled with your girlfriends’ names. Fairies that stood by you as guardian angels, through troubles and joy. And you know as the Greek tradition demands, you as the bride, have to write the names of your friends that are not married yet to the soles of your new wedding shoes. Those that will be erased by your steps through the church aisle, your first dance and the wild party, will get married! :-)
// Welcome to our world of Storytelling
Look through our eyes, the essence of the worn soles of these exquisite shoes is to have visioned her dancing through time. And we can see written lyrics of a so familiar song she whispers and this makes us smile. We hum along.
There are so many ways to interpret your vision of each moment. It is all a matter of mindset, workflow and aesthetics. It is all about what you chose to see out of what is happening around you
