SUK YI & ROYstunning elopement session in Greek Islands

Suk Yi & Roy joined us on Crete all the way from exotic Singapore! Booked a year out, Suk Yi, an avid blogger herself @eatlooktravelbook, knew exactly what she was looking for in her portraits.  Elegance, style and refined taste were themes that we wanted to shine in the Couple’s portraits. With over a year of emails exchanged between us – we were ready to pull the trigger and release the shutter!

Our session started in the park in a secluded spot. Set against whitewashed buildings – with just the right amount of  green popping around – the soft filtered light tenderly highlighted the love and intimate nature of the Couple’s relationship.

Moving into Chania’s delightful old city, our romantic portraits took on a more dynamic ambience using color and movement to our advantage. As wedding photographers in Greece aiming to add an artistic flair to all our work the ancient cities, unique structures and diverse landscapes offer so many opportunities to play with light, color and texture.

The last stop of our traveling photo shoot in Chania was at the beautiful harbor. Despite all the planning in the world –  the weather sometimes has other ideas. That day we enjoyed strong energizing breezes from the North which only added to the fresh and dramatic feeling of the shoot.

Photographing the couple against the rippling waters of the sea that day infused the images with loads of texture.  Perhaps inspired by mother nature’s spirit, the exquisite couple let their playful side show at the harbor – flirting with one another and our cameras!
