Wedding photography is a totally fulfilling experience to me. I enjoy every piece of it and every single wedding is a new challenge and adventure. 
 
Each moment can reveal excitement and feelings and these are the very elements I enjoy to capture. An unexpected gesture, a warm glance, a sudden smile are the moving details that fascinate me.  
 
I enjoy working with couples who like spontaneous -in the moment- pictures rather than posed or highly styled shots, Making people feel comfortable in front of the camera is a priority to me. Once this happens, everything seems natural and easy going. That said, during the "next day" session, we'll work together for creative posing that reveals elements of your very self.

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

I am located in Athens, and constantly moving to Greek islands. I am willing to travel anywhere around the world.

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

I have been in business since 2009, and I shoot between 25 and 30 weddings per year.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Mainly story telling, documentary style and sentiment capturing. My portraits are rarely full frame looking at the camera. A couple’s willingness to have fun and enjoy the moment is my main creative inspiration.

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

750 euros without expenses is a typical fee. That said, the price depends on various factors.

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

I will be happy to meet you on a skype meeting. We will talk about your ideas and how my photographic style can fit to them.

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

I am constantly trained through the creativelive.com workshops.
