Santorini has always been on my bucket list of places to visit, so when we decided to go for my birthday at the end of September, I was like a little girl at Christmas! :-) One of the most popular destination wedding locations in the world, it is more beautiful in real life – much more than you could ever tell from the photos you see in magazines or online. Once we booked the trip I was excited to do some travel photography during our holiday and I also knew that I had to do a couple session in this magical place, so I set about finding a lovely couple to photograph.
All the stars aligned as they say, when the lovely Renia put me in touch with a friend of hers, who not only turned out to be engaged, but she is also a fabulous wedding planner on the island! On a gorgeous late afternoon, I met up with Maria & Panos and we wandered the streets of Imerovigli for their engagement session.
Maria looked gorgeous with hair & make up by Renia and the lovely Betty from Betty Flowers Santorini created a a vibrant bouquet for the session. Maria & Panos is such a warm and loving couple and after a few hours it felt like we had known each other for years. What I love most about travelling, is meeting wonderful people and I will forever be grateful to couples with warm hearts and open minds, who trust me to create beautiful images for them.

Maria and Panos, thank you again for spending an afternoon with me, despite your busy schedules. I do hope our paths cross again, hopefully on a return trip to Santorini.
Here are just a few of my favourites from the session.
