Santorini is certainly one of the most photogenic places in the world. This is not only due to the scenic landscape of the volcanic caldera with the impressive views over the Aegean Sea and the distinctive architecture, but also because of the unique light that washes the white buildings all around and is reflected everywhere. Many couples visit the island every year on their holidays, so hiring a professional photographer for a Santorini vacation photo session is certainly one of the highlights of the whole trip that will keep the memories alive.
In fact booking the services of a vacation photographer in Santorini and other popular destinations worldwide is a new trend that came to stay as more and more travellers abandon the selfie stick. After all isn’t just the experience that matters when going on a trip, but also capturing the experience on camera!
Brittany and Anthony’s Santorini vacation photo session was really all about combining a photogenic place with a photogenic couple. They are both Americans, although Anthony has Greek roots, and Santorini was one of the locations they visited during their trip to Europe. Brittany, a former Miss Arizona, was beyond any doubt stunning in each and every photo and I had real difficulty selecting the best shots that I would edit and deliver to the couple.
The hotel that the couple chose to stay was Katikies Hotel in Oia and this is where our Santorini vacation photo session started. I was booked for a 3-hour sunset session and we spent the whole session time in Oia, which is one of the most picturesque villages on the island and an ideal backdrop for photos. Although Oia is usually crowded with tourists later in the afternoon, because it’s famous for its sunset vistas, we were lucky to shoot on an early October day when the island is not very busy.
