Contact Magdalene Kourti

I am Magdalene, an award-winning visual artist & photographer who is inspired by emotions and light! I have studied fine arts and digital arts, in London. As a photographer in Greece, I am mostly into the island, summer weddings, as on Mykonos, Naxos, Paros - Antiparos, Santorini, Amorgos, Rhodes but also city weddings as in Athens, and in Cyprus  
Being a painter, a video artist, and a mother of 3 precious kids, has influenced a lot my shooting style. I love traveling and going to film and music festivals. I love sushi, yoga, and meditation. I love the warm sun on my face, the weightlessness and the silence in the sea, and the sound of the wind; I love my cats, my Vivo barefoot boots, and sci-fi movies. I love the big smiles and positive thinkers!

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

The last years had moved to Rhodes, Greece. I do charge a fixed amount for travel and accommodation fee for destination weddings all over Greece and Cyprus, unless otherwise agreed.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

Since 2009, ..really many, each of them unique :)

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Actually, I have a very basic approach to my wedding photojournalistic work. Because I am fascinated by the natural human emotions that permeate that special day for so many couples, I love the fact that I feel like I am preserving their energy, emotions, and personas for posterity in their wedding photos. In every single example of my creative wedding photojournalism, I strive to share those very real occasions with the viewer and always to give them the feeling of being there at that very moment when two people who love each other commit their lives to each other. To me, that’s truly the meaning of wedding documentary photography. And, as a big fan of those real moments, I also enjoy shooting wedding documentary photography, in a very discreet way that includes numerous creative candid shots that convey the true emotions of the couple. I am confident in realism and not in photoshopped or airbrushed wedding photography. That's because I firmly believe that you look great just the way you are on your wedding day. And, that's why I want to creatively capture it and share it with everyone who views the photos of your Big Day!

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

There are basic packages but also tailored made ones.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I usually use email, google meet, WhatsApp!

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I am a figurative visual artist who is into photography, mainly documentary wedding photography, or reportage wedding photography, since 2009. I have studied fine art in UAL – Wimbledon College of Arts and have Masters degree in digital image from Metropolitan University, in London.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I am a photographic storyteller & a positive thinker! As a figurative artist, I love being an observer of the moment, natural light & emotions.

Just a quick note to tell you that we LOVE the pictures... amazing job and thanks so much! 
You were such a calm and amazing presence on an otherwise hectic day... your energy was really appreciated. 
Artistically you are a wizard... some shots!
I can barely put this in words, thank you so much! 
We've spent hours looking at the photos already. 
This was the best gift we'll ever receive, with your pictures we were reliving our wedding minute for a minute and sobbing all the way through. We really feel you captured our emotions just the way they felt, and because of that we can share our moment with our loved 
ones and have it live on forever. We are so 
thankful for this, both the pictures and the way you worked with us. 
So again, thank you, thank you for this precious moment.
We got married in Rhodes in June 2022. When I was given a list of photographers | immediately saw Magdalene's photos and knew she was the one. She captured the natural and intimate moments, the ones that are unrehearsed and un-staged, the in-between moments only a gifted photographer sees.
