Dennis & Yoom | A pastel anniversary photo session in Oia

A pastel anniversary photo session in Oia

Dennis and Yoom, a very nice couple from San Diego, discovered my services on Instagram and asked me to be their photographer in Santorini.
Yoom and Dennis  have been together for 11 years now. They met through mutual friends on the day Yoom was accepted to pharmacy school.
They got married in San Diego Botanic garden in California, on 11th of June, 2016.

They were staying in the village of Oia, so we decided to have our session there early in the morning, since Oia is becoming very busy in the evening.

As a lover of morning shoots, we arrange an early pick up time to start the session.


We were lucky to have a cloudy day, so we were able to get that pastel tone in our images, that compliments a lot the style of the couple.
The session started at their hotel terrace, (they were staying at Santorini Secret Suits) and continued on the main path of Oia.

Yoom and Dennis, were very good posers, although they said me that they are camera shy.
This happened because they have strong feelings to each other and this reflects to the images.

That’s what make a photo good or not, the feeling.

Yoom, being a calligrapher based in California, (you can find her on Instagram by searching @allthingsyoom) , wrote a very nice quote on a special fabric, which is something that means a lot for them and says:

«And I will choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality. I’d find you and I’d choose you.»
It was a very nice detail that complimented a lot our session.
All that things together, in combination with the natural beauty of Oia, created a result, that made me enough confident to blog this session and share this lovely story with other people.

Dennis and Yoom, thank you for choosing me as your Santorini photographer, you are a lovely couple and I wish you all the best to your lives!
