We feature a unique wedding portrait session today captured by Greece based wedding photographer Hanna Monika.

About the Couple and this Portrait Session

With Sofia & Pantelis we had the unique chance to shoot on the island of Spinalonga, a beautiful deserted treasure a stone’s throw off the coast of eastern Crete.

After securing a permit to shoot on the protected site, we gathered our equipment and headed off through the city of Elounda towards Plaka, where we would catch our boat.

The lovely couple, bride from Crete and groom from Pontos in northern Greece, tied the knot in Heraklion and, in addition to their beautiful wedding day photographs, they wanted to add some fine art photography to their wedding book. The totally unique location – with its spectacular views and rustic structures – enhanced the beauty of the occasion. Exquisite light and earthy muted tones of the mountains and weathered architecture contrasted perfectly with the rich blue of the sea, adding a nice touch of drama and romance to the portraits and the overall feel of the images. Foregoing the use of props in this shoot and relying solely on the natural environment, we weren’t distracted by what could be seen but we were moved by what could be felt between this young couple in love.
