Santorini Destination Wedding Photos

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!

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!

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!

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!
