Pre-Wedding in Florence

Florence, it maintains a magical and special charm, which makes it a perfect city for a pre-wedding photoshoot. Small streets and beautiful architectures, churches,  places of interest can be the ideal background for your pre-wedding in Tuscany, in Florence. 

Florence main city of Tuscany is one of the first in Italy, is located at the roots of Mount Apennino, from which it is covered by the northern and eastern part, where you can see many hills, above which are founded of beautiful palaces and very noble villas that the very delightful district suggests: towards the west it extends into a very wide plain. It is divided into two parts by the Arno river above which there are four large stone bridges to pass here and there. In the city there are buildings and sacred and profane of admirable structure and incredible expense. (Andrea Minucci)

Pre-wedding photos are a lovely idea to get more photos to add to your wedding memories. You can also think of using pre-wedding photos in your wedding invitation or as a slideshow at your wedding reception. If the background of your pre-wedding will be the city of Florence, you will be sure of amazing photographs!!!

DIY WEDDING IN SANTORINI ISLAND – GREECE

Photographer: Athanasios, www.happybridegroom.com

As the title states, this is a Do It Yourself wedding in Santorini.

Kate and Aaron were looking for a wedding photographer serving Santorini island.

It was essential for them to have a photographer that knows the place well as they were organizing everything themselves. That was a “so-called” DIY wedding.

They picked me…..since I am posting their wedding portraits photographs!

How they met

Kate told me their story…

“About ten years ago, we met at the local restaurant I used to work at; we were a young age of 15. From there, Aaron came in each week for about a month until he built up the courage to ask for my number, and the rest is history.

Their trip to Greece – Europe

We decided to elope in Greece as we were already planning our first Europe trip and thought, why not get married there. The more we thought about planning a wedding, it just wasn’t quite for us. So here we are, exchanging our vows with one of the most picturesque backdrops in the world and couldn’t be happier.”

Aesthetics and style

Kate and Aaron is a lovely young couple of high quality and stylish aesthetics!

They come from Australia, and they are still in Greece at the moment having a wonderful time at Milos island.

Their decision to do a DIY Santorini wedding proved to be a stylish choice!

Island hopping 

kate and Aaron, I wish you an amazing time at your staying in Greece. More photographs from your wedding and the Santorini wedding portraits photo tour will be uploaded on a later stage.

Your wedding photographer….. Athanasios

Videography

DIY Santorini wedding…Photographer and Videographer at the same time. Kate and Aaron informed me that although they give priority to photography, they would also appreciate some simple videography footage. Something within a small budget. We agreed that I would be able to shoot some footage after completing the photographic session at each area we were visiting. I was pleased with the results that you can see a bit further down.

Here is the link to their movie (videography)

When needs are simple, and footage is needed only for the creation of a short movie (similar to this occasion), I can act both as a wedding photographer and as a wedding videographer as well.

Honeymoon photographer in Halkidiki Greece

Honeymoon photographer in Halkidiki Greece

Photographer: Athanasios, www.happybridegroom.com

The above title, Honeymoon photographer in Halkidiki Greece, explains what this post is all about.

Portraits of a lovely new married couple that decided to have a portraits photo session during their honeymoon in Halkidiki.

Bert and Ans

I received an email from Bert and Ans asking me regarding my availability for a honeymoon photo session.

They were already at Halkidiki on their honeymoon when they searched google for a Halkidiki honeymoon photographer. My website came up and made a “click” to them.

I am glad that it did!

Photography availability and arrangements

As it happened, I had availability just for the next day, and that suited Bert and Ans schedule.

So, we arranged everything as swiftly as it could have been arranged.

Their honeymoon portraits photo session was arranged and booked!

Golden hour Photography in Sani

During our conversation, I realized that they were very familiar with photographic language and terminology.

They mentioned bout the “golden hour,” they knew about the “blue hour.” Somebody knew about photography and portraiture.

That was Ans (sorry Bert, I had to be honest 🙂

Sani was the best location to combine nature, sea, sunset time (golden hour), and a variety of landscapes.

Colour and Black and white wedding and honeymoon photography

I had a conversation on that subject with Bert and Ans, and since my view is that some photographs stand out better in color while black and white fit better some other images, I deliver all photos in both formats. I always do that, no matter if it is about wedding photography, anniversary or honeymoon portraits, elopements, or any other event in Greece or anywhere else.

Grazie Roma: a “Romanista” Wedding in Rome

What happens when the guys getting married are Romanista and “Ultràs” supporters of the Italian Roma football team? Here you are, with this exaggerated energy-driven party held in Tenuta dell’Angelica in Rome, Italy. As a destination wedding photographer, I usually travel far away from my home town. Still, this time I had the chance to narrate a next-door, humble wedding, made of true life: a cross-section of roman life, an insight into the suburbs. From Tor Bella Monaca with fury, here is the wedding of Lela & Fabrizio!

Savoca Wedding

This Savoca wedding one of the most beautiful “Borgo” town in Italy

Savoca Wedding, where they shot the famous movie “Il Padrino.”

You have heard of the most famous Sicilian marriage in the history of the film, and perhaps you want to get married in Sicily for this… The marriage is the one between Michael and Apollonia. In the film Padrino, the couple organizes the wedding in the perfect Sicilian landscape.

For a wedding photographer, Savoca is a beautiful source of inspiration. The beauty of the landscape with the joy of the spouses.

Arriving with my team in Savoca in the “city of artists,” we immediately started telling everything that surrounded the beautiful landscape of Borgo San Rocco.

If you want to get married in Sicily and look for a wedding photographer, contact me! If you want a typical Sicilian place, Savoca is perfect!
Judy and Aidan hired me as a photographer for their wedding in Savoca a few months before the event.

The entire Borgo San Rocco Resort was reserved for their friends and relatives.

It was a symbolic wedding ceremony a few steps from the resort, on a terrace with spectacular views of Taormina.
Then the couple and their guests returned to the resort for the reception accompanied by a Sicilian musical group.
Songs and dances were the protagonists along with the spouses; but also, the speeches were important and exciting!
I am a wedding photojournalist, do you like my photographic style and want to get my reportage? Contact me; I am available to travel for new wedding reports both in Sicily and away from my base.

I am very professional in my work

I photograph unique moments, and I have been doing it for many years.

The photographs are the only testimony, along with the wedding video, of what happened. This is also the reason why I pause to grasp the many details that the spouses have carefully chosen and organized for their marriage, and that will remain impressed in the memory through the photographs.
