Lyanna and Stefanos met when Lyanna took a spring holiday around Greece a few years ago. They’re both free souls, happy roamers and open sky lovers, who have a crush on the wild beauty of Northern Greece and its warm people. As Stefanos is descended from Northern Greece, they decided to travel back and have their engagement shoot here, so they contacted me. We clicked right away and I was certain that I wouldn’t have to go scouting for days. I had just the place to fit their wanderlust goals. So we took to a natural deer reserve up in Dodoni, a 10 minute car ride from Ioannina, where a wooden cabin on a glade is corseted by thick conifer forestland. We came up with a concept that portrays everything this lovely couple is about. As their photography session decision was impromptu we had no planner available, so we suggested several local vendors for their setup, and contacted the super talented florist Alexis Papaxristos to arrange their blooms. Proteas ,panic grass,eryngium,crocus,craspedia,cortaderia,physalis,brunia,leucospermum, eucalyptus, and Veronicas were employed to give out an utterly charming bouquet for the bride to be and the couple’s overall decor . The Arts of Colors, a local wood artisan created an amazing hand-painted table for their decor and wonderful art de la table was picked at Christos Plastiras, who also styled our shooting decor. We set up a tent at the clearing and created a magical mountain-hill scene for them, infused with several whimsical details. The result thrilled us all. These two are their own wonderful tribe, I loved their style and super positive energy and can’t wait to shoot their upcoming wedding which will also take place in Greece next year.
