And now let’s get started!
Tell us a bit about your story, what lead you to your current career path?
We have been working in the fields of photography and cinematography for over 10 years, however, mostly in the advertising area. We got hired to shoot a wedding about 3 years ago and we realized how much we like capturing love. Since then we had an amazing journey. We created Your White Moments, a brand with a name that reflects our perspective. Because we think that our images should always express the couple’s personalities and not our ambitions.
So, we’ve been both working as photographers/cinematographers more than 10 years now, mostly for advertisements. Then we shot a wedding, 3 years ago and we realised how much we like it. From the first moment we knew that we meant to be in the wedding industry. Its such a beautiful feeling to be there, on the couples most beautiful day.
We love to capture real moments, we see weddings as a celebration of love and we are giving always our 110% to tell these stories. Our goal is to capture a wedding exactly how it happened. For us it is very important that the weddings we cover keep their originality, that the moments we capture are genuine and depict the couple’s true feelings of love.
What inspires you in the business and daily life?
We are inspired by the beauty of authentic moments. You might be struggling for many hours to achieve a great shot, and then, for some reason the couple might have a great moment. A moment that they don’t care about us or the camera. It’s that moment that inspires us. Thats when we understood that we wanna call ourselves storytellers. Cause we just capture stories as they are, pure.
What was your best experience as a Photographer/videographer? What do you like about weddings in Greece?
There are many things to mention as great experiences these last 3 years. But if i had to pick one it would propably be the love and support from our couples. There is nothing better than hearing from a couple that you were the best part of their wedding day. Those words truly touch our hearts!
Which is you favourite location for a destination wedding in Greece and why?
That’s a really hard question to answer. Greece has so many beautiful places. We could pick Santorini or Mykonos, or any other beautiful island but we strongly believe that even a small village at the most unknown part of Greece can offer a great wedding. Nea skioni
Tell us a bit more about what you are currently working on?
As we previously mentioned we love weddings. But at the same time we would love to somehow make the wedding industry even better. Thats how we decided to create our new online shop where photographers and cinematographers can find our (color presets/luts)
for both photography and cinematography. At the same time we offer coaching sessions where we reveal our best techniques and secrets, because we believe in community over competition. It would really helps us if we could find such a help when we first started and thats why we decided now to offers such a help.
And for the last question, what advice would you give to all couples who want to get married in Greece? What is that one important thing your brides should know or pay attention to before coming to Greece?
We would strongly suggest to all the brides to just be their-selves. It’s probably your best and biggest party of your life. Don’t try to create something that it’s not you. If you are romantic just go for it, if you are a party animal, then just do it. It’s your wedding and it should be exactly how you want it. Relax and enjoy that day as much as you can. No matter how you choose to organise your wedding in Greece, you just can’t go wrong as Greece is one of the most beautiful countries and the perfect wedding destination. If there is any tip that i would say for that, is that you should look for professionals that fits to you. Look at their portfolio and pick those that are closer to your style.
