Wedding photography portfolio of a wedding day at Monemvasia in Greece. As a Greek wedding and event photographer one of the places that I photograph at is of course Monemvasia.
Monemvasia is always considered to be as one of the top destinations worldwide for wedding photography, engagement photography, anniversary photography and wedding portraits photo session!
Several of the following wedding images have been awarded, published and distinct-ed.
Lazaros and Chrysoula are Greek and live in Canada!
Fantastic couple, excellent personalities and their wedding reflected their sense of humour, enjoyment, “going with the flow” and easy going manners and attitude!
Their guests where exactly the same…just fantastic people!
I keep on ending every sentence using the exclamation point but what can I do? I need to emphasise the quality of these people 🙂
Anyway, the wedding took place at Monemvasia one of the landmarks at Peloponnesos.
Monemvasia is always regarded as one of the best destinations to get married in Greece.
Of course, weddings at Monemvasia are totally different than the weddings at the Greek islands….Santorini for example.
The landscape is different, the light is different, the aesthetics, the climate…the vibes in general differ!
This is noticeable also to the wedding photographs as well!
As a destination wedding photographer I try to adjust to the environment as well and my wedding photography, although having my own style, differs depending on the place and the circumstances I am called to photograph. One of the factors is the people that trust me for being their wedding photographer, their style and characters (and I have told you already about Lazaros and Chrysoula 🙂 and the other main factor is the environment, the landscape.
Peloponnesos landscape is remarkable as well, dry and hot but at the same time has some amazing and picturesque places such as Monemvasia…an old castle build at the age of a huge rock which is noticeable only from the sea!
It is easy to feel as if you are participating at an episode of “the game of thrones” series when you are inside Monemvasia castle.
Actually it was initially the first choice of the “game of thrones” producers to film the series there.
Hotel Lazareto is situated at the edge of Monemvasia huge rock and this places was the lucky one to host this beautiful wedding.
The only problem that we faced was the time pressure as there was unfortunately no time at all to have a “wedding portraits” photo session of the lovely couple.
We just had a few photographs shoot while heading back to the hotel after the ceremony at the church inside the castle.
The party was fabulous! It reminded the celebrations that are taking place at the small Greek villages main squares.
We all kept on dancing and laughing until the early morning hours!
I wish to Lazaro and Chrysoula to stay as they are for the rest of their lives….Lazare and Chrysoula….ALL THE VERY BEST!!
and here is the email that Lazaros and Chrysoula send me after receiving their wedding photographs,
“These pictures are incredible We just looked at all the photos! They are beautiful. I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us!!! We were very lucky to have you a part of our day. It goes by so fast and because of the vivid, thoughtful, complete set of photos you took we will be able to relive that magical day forever. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!”
