IMPORTANT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY ELEMENTS
1. Natural and honesty photos
What is more important is not posing all the time or disturbing the natural flow of the feelings. On the contrary, I try to shoot as candid as possible, highlighting the moment. I use “posing” only during the family photos. Even less, during the couple photoshoot after the ceremony, where I just direct them for a nice background or lighting but without overdoing it.
2. Relaxing and stress-free photo shoots
As a wedding photographer in Crete for several years, I have understood well that it is not easy for everyone to be photographed. According to my experience, a relaxing approach helps people feel more comfortably and express themselves more easily.
3. Discreet presence
I try to have a discreet as possible presence during the event and to avoid being the center of the attention. Of course, I have to capture your moments and thus, sometimes I get close to the couple but in a way that is not distracting for you and your guests.
4. Being polite
I do love weddings because I want to document people and feelings and that is the reason I work exclusively where love is. I deeply appreciate the honor of being with a couple and their friends-family on such a day. Consequently, as a wedding photographer in Crete, I think that one of the most important things for me is being polite with all participants and having a positive attitude.
5. Understanding how light works
A photographer should be able to undestand how lighting works and how its quality renders differently each location or object. An easy example is the soft sunset light VS the harsh midday light. The first one renders a scene with a magic way. The second is contrasty and a photographer should know how to handle it or even take advantage of it.
6. Planning and scouting
Before each wedding, I spent some time scouting the place and the nearby places. I want to have a clear understanding on the location and the lighting and be able to provide alternative suggestions if needed.
7. Great family photos
A great part of wedding photography, which is often overlooked, is family-friends portrait session, just after the ceremony. It is an essential part of the day and the one, which satisfies the feelings of your beloved ones.
8. Backup cameras, lenses, gear
Equipment is an important part of my work and I take care every detail before a wedding day starts. Additionally, I have backup gear just in case something fails. That offers peace of mind to me and my clients.
9. Taking into account your desire
I take into account any custom desire and I want to be there for photographing what you love. Some examples of what I mean are the moments you want me to capture a photo with a person you want, photos of a particular group of people, some details which you want to emphasize, etc. Feel free to share with me your thoughts!
AN ELEGANT WEDDING & DAY AFTER PHOTO-SHOOT
This lovely couple chose to make their wedding in a resort just outside the city of Chania. The area was ideal with panoramic views of the surrounding hills, the weather was perfect, making the union even more beautiful to witness. At the ceremony that took place between the olive trees, the couple shone and had with them friends and family.
Afterwards, we had the time to take some pictures in the natural environment around the wedding venue. In addition, in the neighboring village, we made an unforgettable wedding photo-shoot in the beautiful alleys. There, we had a great time interacting with locals who were very openhearted and positive people. Back in the villa, the reception and dinner took place during the sunset and of course a Greek party by the pool.
Another day, we visited a seaside location for some relaxed “Day after photos”. As their wedding photographer in Crete, I wanted to capture the joy, love and excitement in a natural and honest way, in such captivating light and scenery.
