I have always had a thing for Japanese culture. Everything about Japan attracts and fascinates me: the harmony and simplicity of its art and aesthetics, the wisdom and profoundness of its philosophy, the poetic photography of its films, the delicate musicality of its language, and the natural kindness of its people. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Misa and Kai, whose wedding I was to shoot in Santorini, actually had Japanese roots! The choice of Santorini did not come as a surprise to me, as I was well aware of the popularity of this magnificent volcanic island as a wedding destination – especially among couples from the Far East.
It is always a delight to work with such lovely and sweet-tempered couples; they bring out the best in me and make me wish to do my very best to ensure their wedding photos will make them smile every time they look at them.
Santorini Gem, on the hill near Santo Wines, gazing over the spectacular gulf of the caldera and the endless Aegean blue, was an ideal venue for Misa and Kai’s wedding ceremony. The peaceful, idyllic environment, bathed in the magical Greek light, provided the perfect backdrop for the celebration of their love.
Misa and Kai, I really want to thank you for honouring me with your trust and for allowing me to be part of the incredible experience of your wedding in Santorini!
