I have worked with too many couples that come from great distances to have their photos taken here, in Santorini. The beauty of this island acts like a magnet and I understand why, considering that I spent almost my entire life here and I still feel in love with it. So, it was no surprise when Lucas and Mary messaged me from Texas, telling me that they are coming to Santorini and would like a professional photo session to make their special moments on the island. For a couple that was so in love like Lucas and Mary, the location was more than perfect.
I really enjoyed listening to their story. Meeting with the help of some mutual friends, it didn’t take long for Mary and Lucas to know that they were made for each other. So, just 10 days later, they decided to make their relationship official. This happened on the 17th of February, 2015. Ever since then, the two have been together and are very much in love today as they were back then. Finally, on the 16th of September, 2017, Lucas decided that it was time to propose to Mary, so he went on with his plan. This year, on the 20th of October, their wedding took place and I am sure that it was dream-like.
So, they came to Santorini to enjoy their honeymoon and celebrate this special moment with a beautiful photo session. As Mary told me in her message, the couple wanted that the photos I was about to make to really capture the love they shared and had for each other. Since they stayed at the Volcano View Hotel, I met with the couple in Imerovigli. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well this couple got along. They truly looked in love and this is something worthy of admiration. The photos came out in a gorgeous manner. The stunning landscape of the island and its dormant volcano complimented perfectly the beautiful couple.
For me, it was a wonderful experience to work with such a couple. I would really like to see more pairs like Lucas and Mary, so happily in love even if it’s been a while since they met. I am sure that they also had an unforgettable honeymoon in Santorini as well, an island that really knows how to spoil you from all points of view.
