“On your wedding day the only person that will constantly be with the couple is the photographer. We always tell the couples we work with that marriage is a party. A party we do for many reasons. One of the reasons it to have fun! In order to achieve that you should stop getting stressed and relax. You should have around you positive and happy people that share your happiness. You should make sure to find vendors you share the same ideas with and make you feel yourself. On your wedding day, the only person that will constantly be with the couple is the photographer. That’s why his/her presence should not stress you but instead relax you. Good communication with the photographer is very important. Having in in mind these, it is certain that we will have fun and will capture unique photos that will remind you of that special day. Photos that will show how happy you were on the best party of your life”.
“Dare to have an unplugged wedding! One of the most important things that I want to show in my pictures apart from the couple are human relationships. No story is complete by focusing on just two people. For this reason, during important moments I will focus on ‘characters’-guests that have something to add to our story. The problem is that very often my photos lose their power, because many of the guests choose to experience the wedding by capturing photos, hiding themselves behind a device, usually rather larger. As a result, I do not have anything that I can use. Dare to have an unplugged wedding! Even on certain moments. The photos taken by your friends will be of poor quality and they may never give them to you, so their worth is limited, both for you and them. Since you have trusted a professional photographer, do it till the end. From my experience, by doing so you can only win”.
“It is important to allow us do what we know very well and trust us. How to choose a photographer: There is a secret for having good wedding photos…What we usually advise couples on our meetings is to choose a photographer not based on price or how he/she … does the things the couple wants. The couple should choose a photographer whose view, style and logic in capturing the moment suits you. Have a look at completed works and you will immediately know if this is what we are looking for. Let you photographer guide and help you: After you have chosen the photographer whose style you like, let him guide you and help you with the programme of your wedding day. We want to know the couple before their wedding, because we are the only professionals that will be with them from early in the morning till late at night. At our appointments we discuss with the couples and we help them plan the schedule of their wedding day. It is important to let us do what we know better and trust us”.
“Each couple’s portraits are more beautiful when they are not planned. It is very important to look and feel yourselves. You should remember that a wedding photoshoot is not a magazine photoshoot. Having searched online, you would have seen couples that have amazing photos and although it may look as if the shoot lasted only 10 minutes, the truth is that patient and very little thought were needed. Since some couples do not feel comfortable in front of the camera, a walk with their photographer, or a common hobby always helps to become used to the camera and relax by trying to move to different places with beautiful light. Even when the photographer gives you a straight forward instruction, scenes that are both natural and beautiful are created while you have no idea that they have emerged. If your wedding is early in the morning, just after your preparations, think about having a first look photo shoot, your first encounter as groom and bride. Because of the strong feelings that arise at these moments, the photos you will receive will be magical.”STUDIO27 BY ANDREAS POLITIS
“Live your day in a way that express you! What will remain forever from your wedding, apart from the happy memories, are the photos! What you can do to have the best result? First of all, your photographer! Choose someone that completely express you and trust his/her experience to guide you throughout the day! You, as a couple, you can also help to have the best result! How? With the simpler yet probably harder way…Be yourself! Do not pretend or pose! The best photo will be the one that will contain emotion and will always remind you of the uniqueness of the moment! Live your own day in the way it expresses you! “
