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 Paros - Antiparos, Rhodes, Crete, Corfu, Hydra, Spetses, Santorini, Amorgos, Naxos, Mykonos, and many other islands, but also city weddings as in Athens, Thessaloniki, Larnaca, Nicosia, etc.  
Being a painter, a video artist and a mother of 3 precious kids, have 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, 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/skype!

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.
