Story

This picture was taken during a wedding ceremony in Santorini, Greece. During the ceremony we usually split – one of us is in front and one in the back. That’s very helpful in order to capture everything perfectly without moving a lot. In this case we couldn’t move a lot since the only way to the front was the aisle. We always do a wide-shot from the aisle to capture the whole scenery. Especially with a view like the unique Caldera view in Santorini and also lighting wise this was probably the best angle to shoot. Since the ceremony space was very narrow we could perfectly capture everything in one frame.

Give your couple a short reminder before the ceremony to stand centered in front of the arch. Also talk to the celebrant and ask him where he would stand during the ceremony. Maybe he’s open for suggestions. In this case we were even discussing together with the wedding planner about the ideal place for the harpist.

Hey y’all, good to have you here! We are a husband and wife photographer team focused on wedding photography. The last few years have been an incredible ride and we were able to travel all around the globe doing what we love the most – shooting weddings! We found our happy place on the Balearic Island Mallorca where we restored an old house. There are so many good stories and experiences we’ve made and we’re happy to share some of them with you over here! Cheers Chris and Ruth
