Oia, Santorini | Greece
Dreaming about an elopement in Santorini Greece?
Santorini is one of the most romantic destinations in the world and the perfect setting for an elopement! The landscape is second to none, the light is simply amazing and the overall vibes are captivating. As a destination photographer, Santorini is a place that I’m always excited to work at!
Megan and Matthew are from the United States and chose to elope in Santorini. Getting away to an overseas destination wedding can sometimes seem overwhelming but investing in a trusted team of professionals like a wedding planner and wedding photographer makes things easier.
The thing I really love about elopements is that we have lots of time to wander around the island and explore the off beaten path. Like in this wonderful elopement in Santorini, we went to a traditional village for Megan and Matthew’s first look photos. By the way, please have a read at why having a first look at your wedding is one of the best things to consider. When planning your elopement in Santorini, make sure to have the ceremony close to the sunset time to make use of the best natural light. Stella & Moscha, the wedding planners of this elopement, added an extra touch of Greek tradition by having two musicians to join the sentimental time that these two lovebirds declared their love for each other.
Every destination wedding photographer wants to have pictures at their portfolio of Santorini and I am thankful to all the wonderful couples that have trusted me with their wedding photography and I can travel to the best destinations in Greece and Europe!

We can’t recommend Elias highly enough to anyone shopping around for a photographer. We feel incredibly lucky that our wedding planner connected us with him. We knew right away from looking at his portfolio that his work was stunning but when we saw our own photos we were absolutely blown away. We have received endless compliments from family and friends. Each one is better than the next and they are a true treasure. Not only is Elias incredibly talented but he is a joy to work with and made us feel at ease being in front of the camera. He made us laugh, knew all of the best spots, and he let us live our day organically and captured it beautifully. My favorite memory is changing into my comfy shoes and running through Oia after our ceremony at sunset to sneak in some shots at the blue domes. We had so much fun. And a super bonus – he sent our entire album of photos to us in less than 1 week which is unheard of during wedding season!
