Photographer in Crete, Greece
A photographer in Crete is inspired by the magnificent landscapes and the spirit of the island. Crete, the largest island in Greece, is a very beautiful place to visit and explore. In case you are traveling to Crete soon and you are wondering what to do, this island boasts of a number of things to discover…
The coastline is an enchanting setting of natural beauty. The beaches offer a unique experience and energy. Blue, turquoise and green palettes of nature create an awe-inspiring scenery for portraits! In addition, there are landscapes with imposing mountains and incredible gorges which are very impressing for the visitor.
Furthermore, Crete is a place of rich history and cultural heritage, well-maintained historical sites and historic forts full of myths. It is a fertile land full of olive trees, vineyards and natural food products, which form the famous Cretan cuisine.
Exploring Crete cannot be complete without having a photographer to take some photos of you on the island. Photography will preserve the memories of your vacation in Crete and your moments.
Whether you visit Crete as a couple or a family, you can decide to have a photo-shoot at some amazing places. It could be for an engagement or a honeymoon trip, for an anniversary or a family union. Certainly, that will be a precious gift for yourself or your favorites.
ELOPEMENT IN CRETE
Two people in love decided to visit Crete. Their preferred location for exchanging their vows was a -as lonely as possible- beach. Stavros beach near Chania in western Crete was ideal. Beaches in Crete can be crowded in summer but there are some places around which offer isolation. Their ceremony was simple and personal. I feel honored that I had the opportunity to witness their elopement experience as their photographer in Crete. Above all, I express my appreciation through capturing their portraits of love in such a natural environment.
A FEW WORDS FROM THE BRIDE:
Roper & I first started out as friends. Our relationship slowly grew from there and in 7 years he asked me to be his wife. Once he asked me though, I knew our wedding was not going to be traditional because nothing about our relationship was traditional. I did not want a big event.
Since my grandmother passed away 2 years ago, I knew I just could not have a ceremony without including her memory in some way. My grandmother left a gift to my family when she passed. That gift was a dream vacation in Europe. I could not wait. Then, when Roper proposed to me, we decided that the perfect way to honor my grandmother was to get married, just the two of us, while we were on the vacation she gifted us. The ceremony was perfect. We said the vows we wrote to each other, we had the sun setting behind us, the waves crashing beside us and the most magical love between us. Eventually, It was everything I could have ever wished for and more.
Our photographer in Crete, Antonis and his lovely wife congratulated us, helped us get into our outfits and witnessed one of the most special moments of our lives. To sum up, the pictures capture every moment perfectly. It was so relaxing, beautiful, and special since he makes you feel so comfortable and his work speaks for its self. I could not have possibly dreamed up photos of my wedding day as beautifully as Antonis captured them. Moreover, they are something out of a fairy tale. I cannot wait to visit Crete again in the future and have Antonis capture more portraits of special moments again.
