Story

This photo was taken during an inspiration shoot on Santorini. It was a super spontaneous project for us and we weren’t involved in the planning a lot. Maria at Tie the Knot Santorini was floored by the jaw-dropping beautiful location at Eden Villa of Canaves Oia and knew she wanted to plan a shoot. All she needed was a visionary idea to lead the way.

When interior designer Panos Zaverdinos (a friend of hers) saw the amazing cliff with rock statues, he was speechless. And then he said, “Well, this setting feels like it came out of a futuristic movie…like aliens are going to land here. At the same time, the minimal and wild Cycladic environment makes it even more interesting. What would you think of a LED installation…created by aliens?”
Instantly, the whole setup was created in Maria’s mind!!

Maria then called us up since we were in Greece, traveling the Cyclades in summer 2020. We checked the ferry schedule and sailed over to Santorini. When we arrived at the venue everyone was busy setting up things. We also met Panos who of course was there to see his vision coming to life.
