Last week I shared with you part one of Nicole & Christopher’s beautiful pre-wedding session in Santorini, as seen on Magnolia Rouge (their incredible elopement was featured on Martha Stewart weddings – see part one and part two), and today I’m thrilled to share their evening session in which we explored a stunning deserted black sand beach, just ten minutes from the bustling town of Oia. As a Greece film photographer, finding dramatic locations like this to give my clients such uniquely different backdrops for their wedding album is such a dream come true for me. Scroll down for all of the beauty!

Later in the day, we traveled to Katharos Beach to create a completely new and unique environment – one that was inspired by the arid, desert climate of the island while this time very much focusing on the beautiful waters that surround Santorini. As we stepped foot on the beach, surrounded by volcanic rocks and cliffs, we were amazed to see that we were the only souls there. It was a surreal and truly otherworldly experience.
Not only was Nicole’s dress was chosen specifically to match the morning’s portrait session but also for the evenings. Airy dove grey fabric danced in the wind and captured the light beautifully. Although we encouraged her to go barefoot, she actually chose to wear her amazing pair of silver Ferragamo platform heels which we couldn’t have loved more! Nicole carried an organic olive branch bouquet with soft silk ribbons to juxtapose against the rugged surroundings.
As evening drew near we were treated to the most stunning Greecian sunset complete with ships passing on the horizon. The water glistened off the black sand and slate colored volcanic pebbles as we listened to the gentle tide going in and out, making a tranquil sound as it danced upon the rocks. It was the perfect serene atmosphere that allowed Nicole and Chris to quietly reflect on their love in eager anticipation for their wedding, and as a Greece film photographer, the day could not have been more perfect and beautiful.
The evening concluded with the Nicole & Chris lovingly looking towards the endless Aegean Sea, dreaming about their beautiful future together as husband and wife.
