How lucky am I? Can you think of a better job than photographing beautiful elopements & weddings in the most beautiful places in the world? No? Me neither. I’m thankful for such great couples, like Stefanie & Rico, who take me to such amazing places around the world to document & celebrate their love. Couldn’t wish for a better job!
Stefanie & Rico, from Chur in Switzerland, first planned on getting married at Lake Como, but soon after a round-the-world trip the couple fell head over heels in love with this lovely little Greek island & switched to the idea of eloping on Santorini. They only took 24 of their closest friends & family with them.
The bride Stefanie organized everything from Switzerland together with Ever After Days wedding planer Stefania from Santorini. The Elopement took place at the amazing Dana Villas Hotel , which is very much specialized on elopements & weddings. The ceremony & dinner took place on their beautiful terrace with the typical & most breathtaking view over the famous Santorini Caldera. They had a beautiful dinner with an amazing sunset view.
I got to spend a few days with the couple & their family & I got to know them quite well. After being together for almost 10 years, being around the world for almost a year & having their sweet 2 years old daughter Alia, they decided to tie the knot in this magical place they felt in love with during their world trip. Luckily they decided to bring me with them to Santorini & document their unique elopement.
It was a very relaxed elopement with a lot of free time inbetween ceremony & dinner, so the guests could relax at the pool, while the couple & I could drive around Santorini & explore the best places for portrait pictures. We decided to not only take the typical Santorini pictures with the white houses in the background, but to drive around the island & also take pictures at the beautiful beaches. On our way to Red Beach, we found a rad cactus field, so we just had to jump in there & take some pictures.
After the couple session they had a relaxed private reception at their honeymoon suite at Dana Villas with all their family & friends, just before they hit to the venue’s terrace, where they had dinner & a neat party. But a party is not a good party until you jump all dressed up in your gown into your own hot tub & continue to party until dawn.
Perfect end of a perfect elopement!
