Imerovigli


Imerovigli is a small village between Oia and Fira. What makes this place so magical is the position. From here, you can witness the most sublime view of the caldera on this dreamy island! The sunsets here are even more impressive and peaceful than in Oia. In fact, you can get to Imerovigly by car from Thira. It shouldn’t take more than 5-7 mins.


The Skaros rock, a solidified lava landscape; are only for those who are willing to hike but trust me, from the spots near to the rock the sunsets are unmatched! If you are planning a proposal in Santorini and you both are wild romantic hearts who want to embrace life’s glory, you will find there a lot of amazing spots for photoshoot!


If you wish to see more iconic architecture here, the Anastasi Church will satisfy your blue dome craving. This picturesque place will certainly adorn your wedding photoshoot in Santorini with a classic Greek island backdrop!




Firostefani


This small quiet village is actually an extension of Fira, Santorini’s capital. The name literally means Fira’s crown and it is only fitting because it is located on the highest part of that area. Its juxtaposition offers a plethora of magical views of the caldera and a beautiful and thrilling perspective of the volcano. The white houses on caldera are captivating enough to transform any engagement photoshoot in Santorini into real art!




Vlychada


Moon-shaped beach enveloped with large rock formations, sand stretching along the coastline gently adorned with white pebbles like pearls. Do I really need to say more!?


This lunar landscape formed by the sediment is probably something that you haven’t seen anywhere. If you want your photoshoot in Santorini to be special, why not do it in one of the most dreamy and unique places in the world? I guarantee you, it will be magical!





Profitis Ilias


The monastery of Profitis Ilias is the crowning jewel of Santorini, it is located on the highest point of the island, on the mountain carrying the same name. It was built in the 18th century and its architecture wears historic beauty that is characteristic for that particular period. Being high on a mountain, the view of this place gives an astonishing panorama of the south part of the island and sea. Just imagine a golden hour there, soft breeze and warm air igniting the spark of love. Because of its awe-inspiring views, it is one of my favorite places for a wedding photoshoot in Santorini!




Pyrgos


Looking to experience the traditional architectural beauty of Santorini? Then Pyrgos is the ideal place! This traditional village which offers impressive views of the rest of the island is the former Capital of Santorini. Let yourself wander and wonderfully lose yourself in the narrow paths that are following a collection of tiny white houses and churches! You can stand in whichever alley you choose and still get an iconic photo. That is why Pyrgos is one of my favorite places for an engagement photoshoot in Santorini, you can experience the authentic spirit of a Greek village at its finest! If you wish for something that is even more scenic then the old constructions like the castle and churches will impress you with their monumental appearance.
