Let’s take this blog post back to earlier this year in May when I went to Santorini to photograph the gorgeous wedding of Derek and Shiloh.
Before landing in Greece, we ate our way through Spain for the first ten days of this adventure. I stressed myself into oblivion about traveling with so much gear just so I could shoot this wedding. I paired everything down to just the essentials and somehow my backpack still weighed a ton but I used every piece of equipment I had brought so it was well worth it. And speaking of well worth it, check out the sunset we scored the night of the wedding! It was incredible! We were escorted to the rooftop balcony of the Le Ciel and as the clouds rolled in, it created the most spectacular colors I have ever witnessed. I’m so glad I made the decision to not waste another second of the sunset because the fog came in so quick that it got dark pretty fast. It was the highlight of the evening for me.
Derek and Shiloh were so accommodating to both myself and my videographer friend Patrick of Carry On Studios. They went to great lengths to insure that we were comfortable and well fed just so we could do our job. Take note future brides and grooms, thoughtfulness for your wedding vendors is most appreciated when you spend long days on your feet carrying heavy equipment and sweating your butt off. These two knew what was up and didn’t miss a beat.
This wedding might be as close to a dream come true for me. It was a dream I didn’t dare to have because how on earth would it ever come true?!! Somehow this one did come true and now I have the gorgeous memory of one of the most delightful places on earth. I encourage you all to start dreaming of Santorini.
