Emily and Benjamin’s engagement in Santorini is the shot of summer energy we all need! We enjoyed our time together immensely and I loved walking around the island with them and capturing their love until it was time for the most glorious sunset ever – like it always is in Santorini!
They traveled from US Chicago to celebrate their engagement session with a romantic trip to Greece. An engagement photoshoot was a way to make their engagement official and use the photos on their Save the Date’s as they are planning to return to Santorini for their wedding. Who can blame them? Santorini is a magnificent place to have a wedding since it encapsulates perfectly the Aegean elegance and sophistication!
I enjoy photographing couples who laugh so much and are full of love. You could tell how calm they were by looking at each other in the eyes and how affectionately touched each other. The great thing about Santorini is that you can simply throw on a dress, wear your sandals, grab your love’s arms and that’s pretty much all you need!
I left Athens early in the morning and landed in Santorini after a couple of hours, feeling the early summer breeze. I enjoyed a nice espresso in my favorite place (hello Remezzo!) and made a route plan with different alternative and scenic corners for our session! Early in the afternoon Emily and Benjamin showed up and immediately we started chatting and photographing all the lovely poses and all the beautiful corners of Santorini.
It’s so easy working with a couple in love! They told me their love story, how they met, their hopes and dreams for the future and how lovely it is to have found their soulmate. Their engagement session in Santorini was a prewedding opportunity to spend time together and celebrate being in love. It was moving and lovely and I can’t wait to capture their wedding!
After the glorious sunset and a sneaky Aperol to celebrate the occasion, I returned to the airport with beautiful memories, ready to return home with the last flight of the day, at midnight!
See you soon Emily and Benjamin! I hope you stay this lively and happy forever!
