Do you want to know the secret to shooting killer pre-wedding, engagement or wedding portraits in Oia Santorini?

The best tip I can give you is to sacrifice your lie in, wake up before sunrise and go when no one is around. You’ll usually get the occasional photoshoot or influencer there at the same time, but it won’t be as crazy busy as it is during the day.

Pre Wedding engagement photoshoot Oia Santorini

How do you celebrate your first year of marriage? Your first wedding anniversary is a big deal, and definitely something worth celebrating with more than just Netflix & Chill.

Retro Diner Wedding Photo Shoot

They say couples that camp together stay together, right?

I have always loved the trend of matching-PJ photos (not to brag or anything but I was way ahead of my time with this, roping my reluctant husband into wearing matching PJs with me for a Christmas morning photo a few years ago!) Now this trend has slowly caught on and you can even buy […]

When you think romantic cities of the world, you can’t help but think of Venice. Cobbled streets winding through countless rustic alleyways, gondolas floating gently along emerald canals, the majestic expanse of Piazza San Marco overlooked by the beauty of Saint Mark’s Basilica; its no wonder the city has become synonymous with love itself. When […]

Venice Engagement shoot- Periesa & Will

Where better to celebrate a couple’s love for each other than in the city of love itself?If you’re ever shooting in a major city, getting an uninterrupted shot is a challenge.

Paris Couple Shoot- Claire & Ini

When you’re starting out as a wedding photographer, you get trapped in a vicious cycle. You can’t book weddings without content, and you can’t get content without booking weddings. You even struggle to work for free! It’s a difficult trap to escape from and a lot of aspiring wedding photographers give up on their dreams […]

Jack & Rose- Couple shoot Photography Farm Shoot Day

That wonderful smell of salty air, the cries of sea gulls, the feel of the wind on your face, the twinkling of sunlight on the water.
