Elopement. You don’t see that often enough. The truth is, weddings are family occasions, you want to share your joy and happiness with the people close to you.
And yet, there is something so retro romantic in the nature of an elopement. The intimacy, the closeness, the idea that at that moment only you and your significant other exist.
This story is that. Katerina and Vasilis invited me to be a part of that private moment, and I couldn’t have been happier. We went to Istanbul, in the last days of autumn when the city was at its most welcoming stage.
When it comes to this city, I have to say that no matter how many times I visit it, be it for a wedding, an after day session, an elopement or just for travel, each time I discover bits and pieces I had never seen or appreciated before.
Sometimes I think it’s about the way the light glazes Istanbul that makes everything shift and change. Other times, however, I realize that if you make a slightly different turn, you get to see a completely different aspect of it.
The everlasting beauty of the majestic Galata Bridge provided us with many spectacular shots. I was lucky enough to be there with an amazing – once again- couple, that somehow blended with city in a serene harmony.
The nostalgic feeling of the city along with its contemporary moments, came into an amazing balance with Katerina and Vasilis. And that was another great thing that stayed with me, and I think I’m going to keep with me for a long time.. The way everything was grandiose and had a majestic simplicity and intimacy at the same time, giving to the entire day a unique clarity that in our times is a bit hard to come by.
