Bohemian Wedding in Santorini, Greece
Getting wed back to where your roots began to grow is for sure a grand thing, and when Allie and Jason asked me to capture on film their upcoming wedding in Santorini I was so happy for their return (and mine) to this incredible wedding destination. It’s been so touching to hear -among other beautiful parts of their love story- about Allie’s father, one of the oldest restaurant owners on the island. Allie and Jason are one of these couples one instantly connects to, their positive energy and sweet disposition was all I could ask for. I loved how organic everything felt on the day of their wedding, and how beautifully their wedding planner Tie the Knot Santorini put the couple’s personal stamp on the ceremony and celebrations, where every detail, big and small just had to be a small treasure. Definitely, my biggest drive was this warm sense of welcome, so evident in their loved ones’ embraces and happy faces everywhere, a kind of simplicity that sources of complete joy. It’s been a most memorable experience and I couldn’t thank Allie and Jason more for having me shoot their big day and making me part of their journey together. Love to you, beautiful souls!
Here is a short note from Allie, before the wedding:
Jason and I met in Amsterdam – both of us moved there for our jobs. We spent our first year together traveling all over Europe together, falling in love through travel, food and exploring new places.
We’re getting married in Santorini, where I grew up spending my summers visiting my father. Th e island has grown up and changed a lot, but it’s always been “home” and a place of comfort and inspiration. And as much as I’ve traveled, I’ve never been to a place like it. My father has been in Santorini for over 40 years, so the island is very important to him too.
We chose to host our friends and family at a winery on the island to share the landscape and fruit of the island with people coming in from all over the world (London, Amsterdam, Portland, LA, San Fransisco, Austin and many small towns in South Carolina).
I would like a unique lens for this experience. I am drawn to black and white and film-style photography. Nothing that feels too digital. I love how you capture candid moments and I wouldn’t want to spend too much time on posed photographs. I particularly enjoy the environmental, details, colors and landscapes you bring into the collection of images.
I hope to have an experience for our guests that celebrates Greek culture and details, with a modern and classic twist. We’re so excited to have you join us for the day!
