Q: What is the difference between a regular
photographer and videographer and a professional wedding
photographer and professional wedding videographer?
Most people when they find their selves in front of a
camera they just freeze and do not know what to do! This
is where are professionals come in. They make sure to
have a relaxed and fun session with them and also our
agency's professionals, edit the photos and the video,

circles under the eyes, or wrinkles or moles or tattoos,
we make them go and in the photos you will look perfect
and this type of editing is offered only by us and not
any other photographer in the island. In the video, we
add music and photos and we also add discreet effects so
your wedding DVD will be like a Hollywood production!
Q: Can I get married
anywhere I want in Santorini?
No. although Santorini is big, there are only a few
places that we have permission to use for civil
ceremonies but it doesn't make a difference because they
all have the same magnificent view. Regarding Oia
though, you have to inform us from the beginning if you
wish to get married there, as it is a different town
hall with different paperwork required and also you can
see the sunset until the end as it sets behind the
mountain. The best places to get married in Santorini is
in Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and Pyrgos caldera
