Santorini Destination Engagement Photos

Destination Engagement Photos in Santorini, Greece

They flew me half way around the world to photograph their destination wedding in Santorini, Greece! We made sure to take a few engagement photos the day before their wedding as well! We all lucked out with the weather…as it had been raining the two previous days in Santorini! The clouds opened up for these two for their destination engagement photos in Greece!

Photographer’s Tip: Strong geometric shapes look really good in black and white! Love the strong shapes juxtaposed with a sweet smile and embrace!

Though it looks simple, it is very complex to make an amazing wedding day photo! As a photographer, I’m looking for the perfect pose, keeping the lines away from their heads, and framing them  through the doorway with The Langham ‘pebbles’ all around!
