When I'm not behind the camera I am usually eating all the snacks, watching Madmen and crime documentaries on Netflix, gawking at Mid Century homes that I plan to buy with my millions in Monopoly money and annoying the humans in my life with memes. I'm probably also taking 20 photos a day of Olive being the cutest dog in the world...at.all.times.
I am an avid traveler and cannot wait to leave the country again. Some of my most favorite trips have been to Egypt, Paris and Ireland. Being Greek, I would being doing you a disservice if I didn't mention Greece. The food, the beaches, the history, oh and of course, the sun tan!! Key West is one of my favorite places in the US. So if you're planning to travel, let's talk about that and I'll share all my tips with you to ensure your honeymoon is just as amazing as your wedding!
Not only am I your wedding photographer, I am here to cheer you on, and keep you focused on the end goal; marrying your best friend.
Maybe that regret subconsciously kicked my ass into gear and pushed me to pick up a camera and become a wedding photographer.
I lost my best friend in 2016...I watched my Gramma take her last breath. That hurt, it still does, and the welling of tears in my eyes are real. Thankfully I got to spend more time with her in my childhood than anyone else besides my mom, so I have plenty of memories, yet at the same time, they will never be enough.
Before leaving for the Army I said I wanted professional photos taken with my Gramma, my mom, and myself in uniform. It never happened and it is all my fault. A 20 something-year-old kid thinking time is on his side and didn’t care to stop his life to coordinate this session and freeze that moment in time, forever.
Here is the silver lining in my mistake, which is my driving force behind being the best damn wedding photographer I can be, for you.
At her funeral, I saw her wedding album for the first time ever. Yellowed, smelling of a mid-century antique, but there she was, vibrant and smiling, alive. My gramma, immortalized in these wedding portraits, forever.
While you may not have your grandparents around anymore, one day, you may be the grandparents in a similar story.
I owe it to you, Queen Elizabeth (the nickname I gave her), and myself to ensure that your moments, your love, and your lives live on forever.
