Contact Apostolis Platanias

I'm Apostolis, a wedding photographer based in Athens, Greece, who previously worked as a photojournalist (including war zone photography). My experience has made me realize what an important role emotions play in photography! I'm always striving to create a story in every image, one told through emotion, movement, and most importantly, the connection between two people in love. 
 
In my 21-year career I had the pleasure of covering hundreds of marriages with couples from across the globe. From my perspective, the photos that truly stand out are the ones capturing true feelings. Whether it is joy, anxiety, excitement or surprise, an emotion captured unfiltered on camera makes a photo priceless! My top priority is to build an intimacy to first understand who my clients truly are. Apart from being a professional, I want them to think of me as a friend who will encourage them to live their wedding day to the fullest.  
 
Things you need to know about me: 
1) I'm a big fan of movies (The Shawshank Redemption is a true Masterpiece!) 
2) My old vinyl records always play in the background when I 'm editing and picking up a wedding's best captures.  
3) I love natural light photography. So, be prepared for some awesome outdoor portraits, with the breathtaking view of a Greek landscape shimmering in the background.

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

I am based in Athens, Greece. Any expenses for traveling and accommodation outside Athens are not included in the price of the photo shooting. I am always happy to discuss the extra cost.

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

I work as as photographer since 1998 and as a wedding photographer since 2006. I photograph as the main photographer during the last ten years and therefore, I have lost the count of how many weddings I have photographed.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I love to photograph people and their emotions. In wedding photography I depict spontaneity, joy, emotion. I aim to capture all the wonderful and unique moments that you experience on this very special day, the moments that you loved and you want to keep alive forever.

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

I have a degree in cinematography and photography from the Hellenic Cinema and Television School Stavrakos in Athens, Greece. In the last few years I attend workshops and conferences on wedding photography almost every year. The last workshop I attended was with the famous photographers Yervant and David Bastianoni.
