The Greek Island of Romance
Santorini has always been on the bucket list of every traveler, especially for couples looking for a romantic Greek island to savor their honeymoon. The island lies at the southern Aegean Sea and its history dated back to the Minoan civilization. Back then, the infamous Thera eruption sculptured the island’s current landscape some 3500 years ago. This violent past leads to the speculation that Santorini was the inspiration for Plato’s Lost Atlantis. Indeed, the history and myths surrounding this breathtaking paradise make Santorini the ultimate romantic destination in the world.
Moreover, while on the island, you will stumble onto some hidden blue dome chapels and white-washed houses stacked on precarious cliffs. Also, navigating the meandering cobblestones streets with every turn gives you a completely different perspective of the caldera sea view. Here, lured by its natural beauty, you can’t help reminisce the island’s rich and eventful history.
Capturing the Moment
But the truth is, many couples flocked to this mesmerizing place for the island’s romantic atmosphere. For instance, some chose to capture their travel moments with a photo keepsake on their honeymoon; others do so on their wedding anniversary celebration in Greece. A short private photoshoot session usually starts in the morning where the sun’s glow bounces perfectly on the shades of white of the Greek cubic houses. The calming azure waters are a sight to behold. Our photographer captures the moments as you stroll along the cobblestone streets of the quaint local villages. The harmoniously constructed houses decorated with vibrant bougainvillea welcome you.
Depending on the day’s weather, one might fancy doing the shoot closer to evening for the attractive hues of the sunset. Consequently, it is not difficult to see from the photo why Santorini remains the top choice for honeymooners and postcard-worthy pictures.
