Hello and welcome! I am Michael, or Michalis in Greek, and I am a Wedding Photographer in Paros Greece.
I will not lie to you, I am not very good with words, I hope I make up for it with my photography. People who know me and people I work with say that I am a relaxed and easy going person. I am naturally more of a listener rather than a talker and on the shy side, but I generally get along very well with people.
Shortly after a BA in Photography in the UK in 2008 I found myself in Paros, a small island in the Aegean Sea, satisfying my thirst for sunlight, something I missed so much in England. I am lucky enough to still be here and call this little paradise home. Since 2010, I spent most of the year as a wedding photographer in Paros and the nearby islands – Naxos, Ios, Santorini, Mykonos, Milos but I will be more than happy to travel anywhere for your wedding!
Style & Approach
All-Inclusive Wedding Day Storytelling
Every wedding is a story, a unique story that deserves to be told and remembered in an honest and authentic way. As a wedding photographer in Paros, Greece I strive to tell this story through images that capture the essence of the day. I am there to document what really happens – your story – not to create a new one by directing or posing you. You are there to live your special day to the fullest and this should be your only concern. I am always close to action but in an unobtrusive way, hopefully you will barely know I am there. The same goes for your guests, I always try to blend in and do my best to avoid any interference.
• How would you describe your style?
My intention during your wedding is to capture the real story of the day, the story of you! My job is to observe discreetly, be in the moment as it unfolds and record those precious memories for you. I will be close to you and your guests but I do my best to go unnoticed, to cause minimal interference.
• Do you have any Wedding Packages?
My recommendation will always be the Full Day Wedding Photography Package which offers 10 hours of continuous coverage. Spending the whole day together will make it possible to create the complete story of your wedding day, from A to Z. We can always create the Wedding Photography Package that suits your own needs, just send me an email to start planning.
• Where are you based and will you travel to our wedding?
For the past 10 years I have been working as a wedding photographer in Paros Greece, a small island in the Aegean Sea. I love travelling, but travelling with the purpose to capture the story of your wedding makes me excited! So, yes I would love to travel to you!
• Are you available for our wedding?
I really hope so! But lets begin with the basics so please sent me the details of your wedding, the more the better! Easiest way to do it is through the form at the contact page. Feel like chatting? I am happy to discuss with you over the phone so give me a call!
• How and when will we receive our photos?
You will get a mix of colour and black & white images in high quality JPG files on a private online gallery through this website. They will be available for you to download and share once all the editing is done. I personally process and edit all the images , one by one, making sure that you will receive only the best possible outcome. This process can take up to 8 weeks after your wedding, especially during the high season May to September.
• Do you only do weddings?
Wedding photography occupies most of my time nowadays but I will not say no to other interesting projects. During the last few years I have expanded my photographic horizons into other fields such as Architectural and Interior photography. If you are interested then please have a look at my Architectural work.
