Magdalene, a visual artist and photographer

A free spirit, warmhearted and optimistic.

I have been into documentary wedding photography since 2009. Being a visual artist and a proud mom of 3 "sunshines", have influenced my shooting style a lot.

I hold a BA in Fine Arts - WCA, University of the Arts London, and an MA Digital Arts - London Metropolitan University.I also have a BBC distinction, and an Adobe IDAA award. My studies, on art and digital design in London, introduced me to many cultures and traditions and gave me the foundations as an artist and photographer. I have interacted with couples from all over the world.

Born in Athens with origins from Rhodes and Naxos, but also Symi, Amorgos and even Crete, and having spent 25 summers in Lemnos, means I am a pure sun and sea person. My country, Greece is a source of inspiration for me, and I always look forward to showing off the beauty of the landscape and the emotions of the people during wedding photography.

My approach to wedding photography takes little moments and turns them into memories that last forever. It isn't the traditional looking and posing at the camera's style. Instead, I prefer capturing a more spontaneous, authentic, and story-like wedding that captures love, happiness, and everything in between.

I want you to relax and enjoy your wedding day and I will do the rest. For more details check FAQ and a detailed post on my shooting style

How I work

I am

I have an individual approach to each event because each one is unique! I observe and capture weddings and elopements in a cinematic way, in order to emphasize moments, emotions and love.

I love

having hugs and spending time with my 3 amazing kids,

Greek islands hopping and travelling abroad,

exploring new cultures; going to film, art and music festivals; abstract expressionism in art, experimental music, sci-fi movies;

summer, the warm sun on my face, reading books on the beach,

the weightlessness and the silence in the sea while diving,

the sound of the wind,

the odor of jasmine,

minimalism and Cycladic architecture;

my cats,

my collection of kimonos,


peanut butter,

poached egg on avocado toast

yoga, meditation;

teaching art to kids;

I love life, big smiles and positive thinkers;

I feel grateful for capturing high vibes!

My studies consist of:

Ba in Marketing Management, Deree College, Athens

ASPAITE teaching degree, Rhodes

Ba in Fine Arts – Painting, 
UAL – Wimbledon University of Arts, London

Ma in Digital Arts, 2D and 3D Imaging and Animation, 

Metropolitan University, London

Horst A. Friedrichs did shoot the lifestyle visuals for digital use, to promote the SS18 collection. I was in charge of organizing the shooting and of the backstage documentary scenes, on the island of Rhodes, in Greece. Being part of a team of professionals is always an honour and a great experience.

THE OUTNET’s fashion team traveled to Athens for the site’s first-ever location photoshoot. The team styled model Ksenia in pieces chosen from some of the 250+ designers stocked on-site, ranging from Charlotte Olympia and Roksanda Illinic to Roberto Cavalli and Hervé Léger. Once more I was among experts.

Every madame shoushou collection is inspired by life itself and every day’s magic. Elina Kordali, the owner and designer of madame shoushou studied fashion design at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan. It is a great honour being the photographer of madame shoushou ss19.

Magdalene is pure magic, she captures the most important candid moments and you don’t even realize she’s in the room. She specializes in journalistic photography so if you don’t like posing for pictures or you are camera shy she is your girl. She documented amazing moments, each picture conveys emotion, every time I look at a picture I relive my wedding. Her pictures are beautiful, she is professional and honest. most of all she helps you feel relaxed on your big day, she truly is a breath of fresh air.

Magdalene has a unique gift and she was able to capture our special day perfectly. On our wedding day, she really put us at ease – her style is contemporary and edgy and she is such a beautiful, positive, artistic person it’s no surprise her photography is the same. Thank you for taking our wedding photographs and giving us the most beautiful pictures that completely tell the story of our day… nothing staged, nothing posed, just breathtaking beautiful pictures that capture us completely. I can’t wait to come back for an anniversary and have some more done.

Magdalene has an eye for composition in her photography; her photos capture more than the moment, they become a piece of art. She was everything that we could have ever wanted in a photographer for our destination wedding on Hydra- she was poised, discreet, helpful, and she is also a wonderful person. She captured every little moment: the best looks, the best dancing, the best smiles, and all in a unique way. I wish I could better express how happy we are with her but words can't do her justice- she was simply spectacular!
