"Photography is, for me, a spontaneous impulse coming from an ever attentive eye which captures the moment and its eternity.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson
I am Magdalene, a photographic STORYteller, a documentary wedding photographer in Greece.
I am a visual artist and a wedding photographer since 2009, inspired by emotions and light. I have studied fine arts and digital arts, in London. Since my childhood, I was into arts drawing and painting non-stop, later on, I discovered the magic of film and video art. Being an artist and a mother of my 3 precious kids, have influenced a lot my shooting style and my way of thinking.
My clients consist of couples that look for elegant documentary wedding photography in Greece. I have an individual approach to each event because each one is unique! I observe and capture weddings and elopements in a very discreet way, in order to emphasize moments, emotions & love.
Regarding my services, I do cover destination weddings, elopements, proposals, bachelorette, honeymoons, anniversary, portraits of families, friends, newborns, couples sessions & solo travelers. Locations of events: Greece as at Naxos, Paros, Antiparos, Andros, Amorgos, Syros, Sifnos, Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, Corfu, Patmos, Nisyros, Kos, Symi, Rhodes, Athens, and Cyprus.
I am characterized by:
-punctuality (deliver the culled and color edited images 4-6 weeks after the event),
-tons of enthusiasm behind my lenses! A big fan of Composition, Light, Life.
