Santorini elopement. Teresa & Peter

The ones that don’t care what others might think. The ones who are not ashamed of showing who they are. The ones who are willing to take a few raised brows and comments if it means staying true to themselves. The ones that are at peace with who they are and what they believe to be true.

My people.

Teresa and Peter came from the US to celebrate love in a place they’ve always dreamed of. Fully knowing that their families expected something else. ‘In our culture you don’t elope’, she laughed. ‘But we wanted to do what we wanted to do.’
What else can I say to that other than AMEN?

Eloping is a decision I don’t think anyone ever regrets. No stress. Lots of time (I typically shoot 5 hour elopements) to relax. Nobody that pulls at you, a ridiculous freedom to do whatever you want.

Teresa and Peter were so sweet, laid back and emotional. Exhibit A: the lovely Santorini wind knocked off the ceremony arch from the terrace – and they just took it with a laugh.

They danced to Ed Sheeran (dream clients!), ate their wedding cake with gusto and climbed in ridiculous places with me. We had SUCH a good time together honestly.

I love elopements. Have I said it before? I l o v e  e l o p e m e n t s. BEST. THING. EVER. Ok. I will leave you to it now. Bye! :)

PS: Team credits at the end!

    Something in me just sighs a sigh of utter relief in the face of such honesty and unadulterated beauty. Everything about these images touch me in that corner of my mind that craves an elopement out of the busyness of life. Sounding all mushy? How could I not. Beautiful couple and mind-bogglingly stunning images. Well done, Nadia <3

    Dear Nadia, I’ve been silently following you for years, but after this blog post I feel I need to speak out. ;) These pictures, the setting, the atmosphere is absolutely breathtaking and you captured it perfectly. Once again I know why you’re my greatest inspiration! I hope some day I’ll also be able to capture pictures with that much personality and life in them <3 Greetings from Germany!
