A Santorini Elopement Adventure | Brian & Shannon

Santorini Elopement Adventure | Brian & Shannon

A Santorini elopement! Is there a better place in the world to celebrate your love than the beautiful cliffs of Santorini?

Located in Greece, Santorini is one of most recognized locations in the world. With its black sand beaches, amazing food (who doesn’t love Mediterranean food?), and unique architecture, it’s truly a photographer’s dream.

Because of its fame, Santorini is a popular destination location for both weddings and elopements. Oia in particular (the center town on the island) is breathtakingly beautiful. The white washed buildings that overlook the Caldera (did you know that Santorini is an active volcano?) are unlike anything I have ever seen. They are the perfect backdrop for incredible elopement photographs!

In August Heather and I flew to this incredible island where we captured this styled elopement adventure with Brian & Shannon. Because Santorini is known for its incredible sunsets, we made sure to find the perfect location to take advantage of it. During the session, we walked from the center of town to a remote cliff overlooking the town.

We ended our session as the sun set behind Oia, creating some of my favorite images from our Santorini elopement adventure (and quite possibly that I’ve ever taken!)
