GET TO KNOW BETTER THE PERSON BEHIND THE LENS
LEARNING PEOPLE’S STORIES MAKES MY WORLD A BIGGER PLACE.
Wedding photographer in Greece
I met photography at the age of 20 when I bought my first camera. My journey has just begun! Very soon, my initial enthusiasm led me to the decision of studying the art of photography. Consequently, I had so many opportunities to come in contact with the talented photographers and teachers of my city, Thessaloniki.
The next milestone of my life was the unique travelling experience in Egypt and specifically in Mount Sinai, in 2012. The expressional eyes of Bedouins and their children, the simplicity of their lifestyle, the primitive flavor of the dominant and silent landscape, inspired me in depth. Freedom is the word and more importantly the virtue that accompanied me throughout my journey. This was the dessert’s gift to me…
After returning to the city, the influences on me were more than obvious, both personally and professionally. The roar of its streets was nothing but a noise in my ears. Thus, I wanted to exclude it and focus only on what really matters to me. In photography respectively, I choose to document only the moments, either little or big, that have a significance. These moments which convey the deepest feelings of our human nature.
The journey goes on!
VISION AND MISSION
Church or civil wedding, with numerous or a few and special quests, into the heart of the city ,in a picturesque village or next to the sea. Every wedding has the love story of two people and it symbolizes the beginning of a new common life. The joy, the emotion, the glances, the anticipation and the expectations. You will find me somewhere there, experiencing these precious moments with you but mainly capturing them with my lenses.
In christening photography, things are different every time. Especially at Greek Orthodox christening, the thrill of Grandma and Grandpa are mixed with the joy and enthusiasm of parents. Inside the different traditional Greek churches, the colors alternate. The blue of the sea and the green landscape of the mountain.
Photography is about people and their stories, love stories, stories about what their expectations, dignity, passion and larger truths in every aspect of their lives.
I do believe that a wedding is a collection of your personal moments and in this collection every little detail matters. Εvery pretty thing you have chosen to surround the celebration of your love narrates its story. For me, the floral design, the wedding dress, your rings, the colour palette or the venue choice are these little but so precious elements that need to be documented. Your wedding day is a meaningful journey and I am here to make sure that you will always remember how beautiful it is.
