During the last two years almost all of our friends have got married. So for the last 2 years we have seen thousands of wedding photos. They were good but I knew I didn’t want it for my wedding. So when it was time to chose a photographer for our special day I took it seriously. There was another reason for it: we had no guests and everyone was looking forward to seeing our photos. All that I knew: our photos must be really great. When I come across Vangelis’ website I realized he was the person I needed. And I was right.
Dear Vangelis, it was a pleasure to work with you! The photos are really great! It is the best present we’ve received for our wedding. A big big big thank for you. I think the best confirmation of my words is that a wedding magazine has asked our permission to publish them in one of its numbers.

Vangelis is an extraordinary person and photographer with special talents, skills, and creativity. He is a passionate artist who takes great pride in the quality of his work. Vangelis is an exemplary professional!
We certainly highly recommend him for any special event or occasion. The results of the final product, our wedding album and video were outstanding! When planning a wedding from Canada, obviously, there are many challenges with abroad planning and co-ordination for our wedding in Nafplio, Greece. Each correspondence with Vangelis via email or telephone whether I was in Canada or Greece made me feel comfortable and reassured. From all our wedding vendors comminication with Vangelis was consistently productive and efficient – this component of the wedding planning was the least stressful. I am very pleased with Vangelis being able to capture our beautiful moments.

Vangelis, we both would like to say a big thank you for our amazing wedding photos. To us finding the right photographer was one of the most important decisions we had to make, given our love for photography. We were lucky enough to come across your website; we both loved the artistic and natural style of your photos. From our first contact you were always extremely helpful and friendly.
It was great having you around, you made us feeling at ease with your easygoing manner and friendly attitude. The final results lived up to our expectations capturing the real atmosphere of the day. The next day photo shoot was great fun as well – we enjoyed every moment and that shows in the absolutely stunning photos you took. Everyone who has seen them has been so impressed as well. The only big challenge we had was how to choose which ones to frame… Again, you are the best!
Christiana & Kostas from Greece | Wedding in Athens __
Angelo, my husband, and I must have visited a dozen websites when we were searching for our wedding photographer. We weren’t exactly sure what we were looking for at the time, but knew that we wanted to feel something-anything-about the photographs and photographer we chose. So many interviews with photographers showed the same uninspiring poses and props over and over again to the point that they literally blurred together.
We came across your website late in our search and were very impressed by the exceptional way you seemed to immerse yourself in your subject matter. I’m sure most artists believe that their art is a personal extension of themselves, but in your case Vangeli it REALLY is! This is evident in the way you intuitively know how to capture people and moments, even the seemingly insignificant ones. But what really stood out for us Vangeli, was the way you seem to capture the very essence of your subject. You have a rare gift for understanding the personalities, emotions and underlying feelings of an event. Vangeli you certainly did this for us!
People, who weren’t able to come to my wedding in Greece, look at my pictures and feel as if they were apart of our special day. There are many classic photos that my family will treasure forever! Vangeli has an incredible talent for capturing a feeling in an image. Going through one of his albums, you never fail to get a sense of the atmosphere at each and every event. And that’s exactly what we wanted – not a collection of snapshots of our nearest and dearest, but a record of the day as a whole, something we could look back on and remember how every step of the way felt.
Vangeli, I also wanted to share with you that our families and friends were all quiet impressed with your personality! You were friendly, professional, and really put all of us at ease! You blended right in with everyone and it seemed like you were more of a guest than a professional just doing his job. You helped to make our day special and we will be forever grateful for the beautiful pictures but most of all making a lifetime friend like yourself! Can’t wait to have you in my future events and my future pictures!

Working with Vangelis was a pleasure we had this past May. He is outstanding at what he does, just look at his work….It truly speaks volumes about his talent. Not only is he extremely good at what he does, he was patient and professional all day. There was not a single photo opportunity that was missed. I am a demanding client when it comes to hiring an artist.
Being a photographer myself I researched for months before hiring a photographer for our destination wedding in Santorini. I am so pleased that I did because I cannot imagine having more stunning images of our wedding than the ones that Vangelis produced for us! Our amazing wedding day was captured perfectly and not one moment of it when undocumented. If you are thinking about hiring Vangelis just know that you will not regret it. He is AMAZING and his work does not disappoint!
Amanda & Luke from USA | Wedding in Santorini __
Planning your overseas wedding can be very stressful, you aspire to organise everything spot on, and in the end you’re left with the memories. My mother only stressed one thing for our wedding day, “make sure you hire a good photographer, because that’s going to be your memento”. I found many photographers online, none that absolutely sold me. Then I came across Vangelis’ website, I read that he had a say in selecting the scene locations for Mamma Mia!– which I LOVE. That was the selling point for me, I thought if he’s good enough for Hollywood, then he’ll certainly meet our requests.
Vangeli truly is a professional at what he does, aiming to also go beyond his clients expectations. We were absolutely blown away when we received our photos and got the best feedback from our family and friends. It was the dream wedding we wanted!

Vangelis is a true artist, a genius in his line of work. He sees things in a different light and his work shines above the rest. When I first saw Vangelis work, I was instantly captivated. A friend of mine had used him for her wedding and the uniqueness of his work stood out to me. When it was time for me to get married, there was no doubt in my mind that I had to have Vangelis.
Working with him was a pleasure, he is very reassuring, a professional at what he does. The pictures from our wedding can speak for themselves, every moment filled with “Kefi”, love, happiness, excitement was captured through his lens. We had scheduled a day after shoot with Vangelis, but my husband and I were so exhausted that we did not want to go. Thank goodness for Vangelis, he was adamant that we must suck it up and just go, we would regret it if we didn’t, and boy, was he right!! What amazing pictures he took of us by the water, in the fields. Simply stunning!!!
Voula & James from USA | Wedding in Athens __
Trying to imagine our wedding photos long before the ceremony and I have to say that my fantasy pictured great views because Santorini is the place of big variety of beautiful picturesque scenes. However I couldn’t imagine me and my husband surrounded by such beauty. Maybe the reason is that every bride wants to be the most stunning and perfect in her wedding photos, so perfect that she can’t even imagine it:))) And such dreams make her happy but at the same time they bother her very much: Is it possible and what master will be able to catch and show her as a princess.
I’ve seen many photos of my friends in their wedding day and in the end it seemed to me that all the photos made by different photographers resemble each other. The interesting fact is that there are no such photos among Vangelis’. So that all his photos of different couples are amazing and at the same time very individual. I can enjoy them over and over and I don’t get tired of them. Really, my husband makes fun of me because I regularly check Vangelis’ new photos as they are interesting, natural and unique.
When we first met with Vangelis I stopped worrying about the result as he is very kind and cheerful person! It’s very important to feel easy and confident while posing and I’m sure that one of Vangelis’ secrets is that he helps you to be yourself and to stop thinking about face, pose and so on, just smile and enjoy each other, the moment and surroundings. He jokes and makes you relax and at the same time we felt as if we were alone. We really had time to enjoy our day, to talk while staying at the end of the cliff although we had just one hour and a half. There was no hurry, at least for us.
And now we look at our wonderful photos! I couldn’t predict that they would be so beautiful. I love everything in them! It’s great that Vangelis caught every moment, every face and important movement of our guests. Our parents and friends were surprised and amazed! And now we have a little issue: which of the photos we should choose for hanging on the walls of our house? I’m sure it will be a very long process to choose some.
Thank you Vangelis!! You are a real master and a very-very good man!!!
Anna & Anton from Russia | Wedding in Santorini __
Being a Greek bride coming from the United States, I had certain expectations from my wedding photographer. And if I was worried about one thing throughout my wedding planning, it was choosing my photographer. I wanted to capture the beauty of a traditional wedding in Greece with breathtaking, elegant and classic yet modern photos.
Once I stumbled upon Vangeli’s website, I knew right away that this was my guy and hoped that he was available on my wedding day! Vangeli beyond exceeded my expectations and everyone that has seen my pictures says they look like they belong on magazine covers! Not only is he a talented photographer with a rich appreciation of natural beauty, but he is professional and just an absolute pleasure to work with. I couldn’t have been happier with his work!
Margie & John from USA | Wedding in Limni Evoias __
Vangelis, we are very thankful for making our wedding and honeymoon. Really, it was not only a photoshoot, not only your professional services, but also a good time we had in Greece with a good friend. Through all our lives we meet people and sometimes learn from the most experienced, most charismatic personalities.
As for the photoshoot itself – again I can mention how much I was amazed with the fact that during all four days of photoshoot I have seen the best concentration on the working process, even during lunches and chats in a car you had time to discuss preparation other details of the photoshoot with us. Some people are pros only while they on a working routine, but others are professionals by nature. I see that photography is not really a job for you but it is your passion. Thank you for sharing this passion with us!
Lilia & Aleksey from Russia | Wedding in Santorini __
Vangelis is the certainly the person I’d recommend, if you are looking for an experienced, artistic photographer. From the moment I contacted him, until now, he has been only professional and with courtesy. I have shot with numerous photographers, and I highly recommend Vangelis to capture your most treasured moments as he and his work will not disappoint.
My husband and I were most pleased to have him shoot our wedding pictures in Greece. He has left us with breathtaking pictures that will be forever captured on print. We consider it a great priviledge to work with him, and an honour to call Vangelis our friend.
Kari & Humberto from USA | Wedding in Santorini __
While planning our wedding from Dubai we were so lucky to have Vangelis recommended to us as the best photographer in Greece. He was extremely professional the entire time and by the time we met him right before our wedding in Santorini we were certain that we’d made the right decision – he made us feel super comfortable and promised to capture our best moments. We weren’t disappointed! We are now enjoying 1300+ gorgeous photos and can’t decide which ones to frame!
Vangelis knows very well how to frame his photos and bring out the beauty of his subjects, whether they are people or things. Above all else, he is a great person and really knows how to relate to the couples, making everything look and feel so natural! You will not only get a fantastic photographer for your wedding, but a great friend. Thank you very much for an unforgettable experience!
Jordana & Ammar from Dubai | Wedding in Santorini __
Vangelis was highly recommended to us by a good friend. Vangelis’ work was indeed exceptional, with an incredibly beautiful artistic style and a rare talent for capturing the essence of each moment. It’s wonderful to be able to relive the events, atmosphere and emotions of our wedding day every time we go through our photographs.
Marianna & David from Greece/UK | Wedding in Athens __
Nothing was more important to us, when we were planning our wedding, as to find the right photographer, the pictures should capture the memories of our wedding in the best way. Since we saw Vangelis’ work everything else compared to that was just a disappointment. His photos have something special, they look so professional, but at the same time so natural. So we had no doubt, Vangelis was “the chosen one”. Now, looking at our wedding pictures is like reliving that day!
Olga & Elias from Greece/Russia | Wedding in Santorini __
Wedding day is the most important day of your life and it should be perfect and beyond your dreams. When I saw Vangelis work on his blog, I had no doubt that I will have any problem with perfection. He is very relaxing while working together. He puts his soul to his work which is very important for a bride to trust his photographer. With his great patience & experience and hard work we had wonderful photos as great memories. Vangelis thank you & your team for your great work. Hope we have shoots every year for our celebration.
Berna & Haldun from Turkey | Wedding in Santorini __
Since we decided to marry, one of our dreams was to make a photo shoot in Santorini, our favorite place in the world. At home in Mexico, we decided to find the best photographer for us and certainly we found it. As we saw the work of Vangelis we knew it was ideal for our photo session, as soon as we wrote him he got in touch with us and gave us the confidence needed. The experience goes beyond what we expected, we did not only took a souvenir of our wedding, we took the best memories of our honeymoon, landscapes and feelings in a way that only an artist can do. We can not be happier with the outcome.
Carina & Sandiago from Mexico | Honeymoon Santorini __
Having had Vangelis by our side at every step of our wedding was a blessing and a dream come true. He captured every moment in its authenticity as he froze the most unique and natural moments of our wedding day, for a lifetime. We laughed, we cried, and we danced! And danced! At every turn, at every snapshot, we had our fun-loving, free-spirited, creative genius, Vangelis, guiding us, encouraging us and savouring every moment with us. He has an eye for detail and a flair for the extraordinary.
We salute you Vangelis.Your exquisite talent; your gift – may it continue to be enjoyed for years to come.
Georgia & Waldo from S. Africa | Wedding in Santorini __
Husband and I are from the U.S. but were getting married in small village in Greece. We came across Vangelis’s website and we loved his photography style and were pleased that he was able to travel. Vangelis was great about communicating through email and we were so lucky he was available on our big day! The walk from the house to the church, Vangelis was running in the boiling heat to capture every moment for us. Even at the reception, Vangelis barely sat for one minute to eat as he was too busy taking amazing photos of the guests and us!
When we received our photos (there were around 1,500!) we were so pleased. They were even better than we could have imagined. We loved the different angles, color and black and white! Our pictures are like a fairytale book. Every photo takes us back to our day filled with so many memories!
Nicole & Michael from USA | Wedding in Sparta __
Thank you so much for your wonderful photography again. Everyone loves your photos and think they belong in a magazine. Greece is far from California, but many of my friends are now inspired to go to Greece after seeing such beautiful photos! You are a true artist and professional, and I wish you many more years of success. My wedding album looks like a fairytale.
Jules & Wes from USA | Wedding in Santorini __
Thank you very much for your professional and magic photography skill which impressed us a lot. Every photo you showed us from the camera are impressive. The light, atmosphere and story board are just perfect. The style is unique!
I feel very lucky that I chose you for the pre-wedding photo shooting. When i did the research at the very beginning, I didn’t see a lot of Hong Kong couples using local photographers in Greece for photo shooting. There was no much comment or experience i can refer to. Some of my friends were shocked that i didn’t use Hong Kong crews instead. However, was really impressed by your pervious work as seen from your blog. That’s why I am confident to make a try and it really worked very well at the end. You know, it is somehow not easy to decide to use an overseas agent you never met before. I will definitely share my experience to others so that they know this fantastic alternative.
Bondy & Tracy from H.K. | Pre-Wedding in Santorini __
We would like to say thank you for the amazing pictures. Working with you was such a pleasure! To all those who are planning to get married in Santorini, or are just planning a honeymoon trip we highly recommend you to have a photo shoot with Vangelis just like we did. Vangelis is a very talented and passionate photographer and you will definitely fall in love with his pictures!!!
Thank you Vangelis!! We are hoping to see you soon in New York.
Ziad & Lama from Lebanon | Honeymoon session in Santorini __
After deciding to get married in Greece we knew that choosing the best photographer would be very important. We knew we needed someone who understands the incredible Greek landscape and someone who knew how to work well with the light. I was so excited to find you and it was an easy decision to choose you as the photographer to capture our special day.
We received our photographs from you last week and….Wow! You lived up to and exceeded our expectations! Because you we’re with us through every step of our wedding you captured each unique moment. We feel like movie stars in a Vogue catalogue when we look at ourselves in your pictures. Thank you for helping us make our dream wedding reality.
