I love it when I get to receive unsolicited comments and feedback from my clients as this illustrates their entire experience best. Should you feel like sending me your thoughts and feelings, do so by using the link below. In the meantime, here what my existing clients had to say about theirs.
Process & Delivery
Where are you based?
My base is on the island of Corfu, Greece, one of the most sought after wedding destinations in Greece. You've probably witnessed some incredible scenes on CNN's The Durrell's or several other Hollywood flicks shot on the island. Are you planning on getting married in Corfu, let me guide you, share insights of the best locations, venues and fabulous activities your guests can enjoy and of course give you a tour. I promise you will fall in love twice!
Do you travel?
Absolutely yes! Being a destination wedding photographer I will follow my couples everywhere their hearts take them and capture their love around the globe, from the all-magical Greek islands, to the most wonderful European destinations. In fact, this year my plans include the ever so charming Amalfi Coast, Florence Tuscany, Venice, the South of France and the ever dashing NYC. Should you wish us to meet there or anywhere in between contact me and let's create something beautiful together.
What kind of events do you usually shoot?
All kinds! I have had the pleasure of capturing quite extended weddings, three-day events, elaborate affairs and intimate ones, elopements, religious, interfaith, cultural, and symbolic ones. Love is grand and no matter how people choose to celebrate it. It keeps my creative soul full and packed with glorious stories to tell.
Ours is an elaborate event which requires more coverage. Can we count on you?
Undeniably so! Choosing to spend more days celebrating your wedding with your loved ones will give us the opportunity to make an incredible collection of images for you. I usually arrive at destination weddings one day prior so that I get a chance to meet you and your people and show them and you the love you deserve. I will tirelessly work to achieve the best photographic results and should you like me to stay a little extra I will be thrilled to capture your honeymoon too!
Can we book you to shoot our engagement?
By all means. I love shooting engagements, which are in my books one of the most special times in a couple's life together. The engagement guide you will receive once you have booked with me will make things easy-peasy for you in organizing your session as it is packed with useful bits of advise and inspiration. Let me just say you can have smashing images during your engagement and have great fun during your shooting. Whether you are planning a destination engagement, an engagement moon or a couple shooting closer to home, contact me and I will meet you there!
We'd love to have a family shoot when we visit Greece, are you available?
Sure thing. Family is precious to me and I'd love to capture your family session wherever you choose to travel. Contact me soon as your travel arrangements are set so I can clear up my daily schedule and let's make memories for you and your loved ones! During our Skype call I will offer you the best insights on family and lifestyle photography.
Do you shoot weddings with an assistant?
Should the circumstances of an event require more elaborate coverage I will happily collaborate with an equally well-versed in events fellow photographer, whose style aligns with mine in providing my couple with the images they so much deserve. The final edit is done by me so that my clients get to enjoy imagery exactly as they wished to receive when booking me.
Do you offer videography?
My master craft is photography and shall remain so. This way I will be devoted to crafting the perfect images for my clients. Should you however are in need of a talented cinematographer to capture the video of your wedding I will more than happy to provide you with names and recommendations from a list of top artists in Greece and abroad.
Do you work with vendors?
If you are asking whether I am affiliated with a specific wedding planning agency then no. However, If you haven't yet booked your wedding planner, your florist, your venue or even your wedding dress designer or headpiece smith it would give me great pleasure to help out. I am so fortunate as to have collaborated with the finest creatives of the wedding industry and if asked for guidance I will advise my couples on their vendors.
Do you shoot film or digital?
I shoot Digital for the ability it gives your wedding to move freely and naturally. My trusted Digital Canon EOS cameras and favourite Canon 50mm f1.2 lens are sure to deliver you with fabulous images to treasure for life. Yet, if you desperately wish for film in your collection I'll be happy to oblige.
Do you provide RAWs?
Providing my clients with RAWs would mean only half the work handed over. My wedding photography edits are what makes my brand unique, therefore I do not provide raw files. My culling process is simple; I take away all the test shots, duplicates, blinking eyes, anything out of focus out of the collection, then fully edit and hand over my clients with pristine images.
Do you Photoshop images?
Although I will definitely clear up unnecessary skin marks and remove obvious distractions from your images I will not by any means apply special filters, iron out clothing, nor change how you look as I want you to look your best natural self and extol your true beauty.
What’s a wedding like with you?
My work means being all about the essence, which means I won't simply capture your images from afar. I love to have fun, and I wish the same for you. I will get to the dance floor, move and mingle with you and your guests. I will remind you to breathe and enjoy when everything else is rushing by. I will encourage you to whisper sweet nothings and kiss "just because".
It is my goal to do our absolute best for my clients. We may hike, explore, and keep moving together, because I wish to make sure that you enjoy every speck of you big day, be it on your wedding venue or outside it. You put so much love and time into planning the single most beautiful detail and I aim to do your day justice. As I am hardly the kind of photographer who will ask you to say "cheese" and smile, you should expect to see all kinds of your emotions encapsulated in your collection of images.
Do you carry insurance?
Yes I do. If your venue needs a certificate of additional insurance, please let me know as soon as possible, so I can provide one for them.
When do we receive our images?
You will receive your wedding images in 3-4 months. First I will upload all the images on a private password-protected gallery on our Cloud Storage, and a month later I will deliver you with a customized luxurious box-set including Fine Art Printed Images & a USB Pen Drive and a little lovely surprise from me.
How often can we contact you?
As the majority of communication is virtual from the moment we get to book your wedding you can contact me Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 20:00 pm and from 10:00 am to 14:00 pm on Saturdays. It is all about great communication and I always suggest several Skype calls with my clients prior to their events to ensure we get our checklists on the same page, to micromanage details and get in the mood for amazing photography!
We have planned a destination wedding in Greece. When do we get to meet our photographer in person? OK
Frankly any time you wish us to meet in person I will be more than happy to see you. If you live outside Greece and you wish to have your engagement shoot closer to home I will jump on a plane and join you. If you wish to travel to Greece prior to your destination wedding date, again nothing would give me greater pleasure than to capture your Greece engagement where your heart skips a beat. Would you like me to suggest the perfect places to have a destination engagement or shoot your engagementmoon portraits in Greece? My list in simply inexhaustible and depending on the backdrop you love my Greece destination wedding photographer services, be it in Corfu or any other island, have got you covered. Feel free to tell me what inspires you and we'll make it happen. If we don't get to meet days before your wedding then I will make certain I arrive earlier so that we get to spend some time together and connect with you and your people.
Michelle & Justin, Santorini
Our experience in Santorini was so wonderful! We live in California, and had planned to visit Santorini and made a decision to have an Engagement Shoot in beautiful Greece. It was so easy to keep communication with Aristotelis and he replies back quickly. He put everything at ease for me, especially traveling from California, as he gave out ideas and locations for our photoshoot to creating a timeline for us. I had no worries and stress-free! Thanks to Aristotelis, we got to see Santorini in a completely different way than we expected. We had a great time exploring the streets of Thera and Oia with him while taking all of those memorable photographs. We loved exploring with Aristotelis! It was peak hour and Aristo took us to areas away from the crowd and busy streets to capture our photos. He was very easy to work with and gave us good guidance in posing and capturing candid shots at the right time. Thank again, Aristotelis, for our wonderful engagement photos!
Louise & Dinos, Corfu
Aristotelis is a fantastic photographer and will put you at ease on your special day, we hardly noticed him snapping away, yet he captured every moment. The photos were amazing and we will cherish them for a lifetime, thank you again Aristotelis!
