Santorini Wedding PhotographerDestination weddings are always a pleasure but the greatest honor a wedding photographer can have is photographing the wedding of a bride or groom's brother or sister. I had photographed this bride's brother's wedding several years before so it was a delight to work with this family again! The first time I photographed a wedding for these wonderful people we were in Florida on the beaches of the Gulf and this time we were in Santorini, Greece. Despite the rain that threatened to put a damper on the ceremony the skies stayed beautiful and were a wonderfully dramatic backdrop for the portraits of the bride and groom around Santorini. I chose to photograph this image of the bride with my 70-200mm lens at 200mm because I wanted to compress her off of the background of Santorini. This wonderful separation between my subject and the background is the reason why a long lens was the perfect tool for this job. Add to that the beautiful bride and some incredible lighting and we have a wonderful portrait of a destination wedding.
