Elegant and bold were themes in Jenny & Will’s sunset portraits in Santorini. Their intimate elopement session was characterized by a contemporary chic vibe which contrasted flawlessly with the hyper textured and ancient look of the Greek Islands backdrop of our images. Our aim was to extend the trend to their caldera cliff portraits as well.
Santorini is famous for its sunsets and as a romantic island destination and it does not disappoint! For this elopement shoot we explored both high vantage points – verandas and terraces – and with feet firmly on the ground at the volcanic black sand cliffs at sunset. Jenny’s bold red dress flowing behind her in this series added a heavy dose of romance and drama to the photographs. The muted light of sunset complimented the couple perfectly during their engagement session – softening the edges of the bolder sentiment earlier in the photo shoot.
Santorini has no shortage of things to do for romantic travelers or those on a whirlwind engagement getaway! Walks in and around Fira are spectacular, particularly heading north to Firostefani and Imerovigli along the caldera-edge pathway. The location is a wedding photographers’ heaven – dazzling panoramas, award winning vineyards, luxury boutique hotels and villas and quintessential Greek charm – are just a few reasons why we love this famous Greek Island and choose it for our sessions time and time again. Modern travelers love Santorini for its cutting edge cuisine and 5 star hotels, while other more laid back explorers enjoy its history, landscape and traditional accommodations. Whatever type of holiday you’re looking for – to simply indulge in the good life, a romantic getaway for two or a cultural excursion – Santorini will engage and delight all of your senses!
