Destination Wedding Greece | Santorini island
Adriana and JR decided to get married on Adriana’s birthday and I have been their Santorini Wedding Photographer. The best gift ever he could do to his beloved one couldn’t be other than an elopement. A special eloping in one of the most beautiful locations in the world: Santorini: the fascinating Volcano island with its breathtaking views on the caldera and the amazing sunset.
The ceremony has taken place an hour before the sunset. The perfect time for a magic elopement in Santorini Island. The chosen location is one of the most exclusive venues of the island, Grace Hotel at Imerovogli. A special place with beautiful terrace in front of the Caldera. The two of them alone, in front of the amazing view, in the magical atmosphere of the golden hour, have promised eternal love. After the ceremony, the couple has had a walk towards Skaros, tha famous wild rock in front of Imerovigli, where the shooting session has taken place until sunset.
At the end of the shooting session, I told them that it would be very nice and iconic to have a picture of the two of them above the church, as night fell and the boats returned to the island.
It was just a joke because it was very dangerous to stay there but Adriana and JR accepted the challenge with pleasure. Even though I tried to dissuade them, they went upstairs.
So I was forced to invent this iconic image with the first camera I had taken in hand by running quickly to the highest point of the area (from terrace to terrace in front of the amazed eyes of the guests).
Honored to have been their Santorini Wedding Photographer
