Story

Roxanne and Josh celebrated an intimate Elopement in Santorini. It was the first time, we got the chance to travel to the Cyclades and Santorini blew our mind from the first day on. Even though it can be very busy with tourists in some places, you can still find spots away from the beaten track. These two rented an AirBnB in order to have their own private space. High up on the Caldera, it really had one of the best views of the island. They had their intimate ceremony at the venue as well as the dinner. Before dinner, we went out for some couple photos at sunset. When we came back to their place, it was already dusk and time for a little dance over the roofs of Santorini. Before the dance, the wedding planner mentioned she brought sparkling lights just in case we need them. After the dance we were all just like standing on the roofs, gazing out over the deep blue Aegean Sea while the cruise ships were leaving with a loud honk. The city lights in the back turned on and we all enjoyed this unique moment. Then we got the idea to use the sparkling lights for a few pictures. We thought it would look cool together with the city lights in the back.

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
