Being a wedding photographer has many wonderful things, and one of them is that it allows us to make collaborations with colleagues from other countries.
So it was with my friend Yiannis Sotiropoulos. I traveled to Nafplio, a Greek city close to the Aegean Sea, where he works as a photographer and I met one of his couples, Maria and Yiorgos, and assisted Yiannis to photograph their traditional Greek Orthodox wedding.
The ceremony was held in a small church in the upper part of Nafplio, where we could hardly fit a dozen of people, and most of the guests waited outside where the bride and groom had prepared some snacks and drinks.
The portrait session, with breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea, was at the fort of Acronafplia. At Greek wedding banquet there were many traditional dances and songs … even at some moment the guests broke some dishes on the dance floor following the ancient tradition.
