Destination Wedding Photos at Canaves Oia in Santorini, Greece
Last month a local Chicago couple flew me across the world to their destination wedding in Santorini, Greece! The bride has been following my work for over 9 years and I was truly honored to be asked to be her wedding photographer! When she told me she wanted to get married in Santorini, I almost didn’t believe her!
Santorini is easily one of the most well known destination wedding locations in the world! A quick scroll through these 60+ photos showcases just how beautiful Santorini can be!
She wanted beautiful photos in an unforgettable location…I think she succeeded!
Ceremony + Reception Venue: Canaves Suites Oia
Photographer: Nakai Photography
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Shoes
In case you missed it – be sure to check out their Chicago Engagement Photos (kimono included) and their Santorini Pre-Wedding Photos!
All the hotels in the city of Oia on Santorini have rooms with this gorgeous view! Canaves Suites Oia is a 5 star luxury resort with private pools in all their rooms!
When you walk around Santorini, you see all these doorways, so I thought to incorporate a doorway into their wedding photos!
Jimmy Choo, say hello to Greece!
This is the view from one of their suites! What a way to start your morning on your wedding day!
Love this photo of the two of them having a moment together before their ceremony!

Cue the kiss + flower petals!
The background looks like a watercolor painting…except it’s not!
There are epic first dances…ones with a view like this are automatically filed under the word ‘epic’!
Getting a little creative with their wedding photography!
As a wedding photographer, I’ve dreamed about shooting a wedding in Santorini. The white walls and the blue domes are pretty amazing, so we made sure to get a few photos with them!
Photographer’s Tip: Look behind every corner…you might just find the perfect spot for a photograph!
Santorini has a lot of narrow passages and walkways –
Oia is just breathtaking. Everywhere you look, there’s an amazing photo opportunity. This picture is the perfect example! I turn around and we had to take a photo in this spot!
Returning to Canaves Suites for their reception!
So simple, with the perfect amount of decor!

Thank you both for having me as your destination wedding photographer! It was truly special to witness your love and to capture these timeless pictures for you both!
