We hired Magdalene to be our photographer for our destination wedding in Mykonos. We had originally booked her for May of 2020, but our wedding was postponed due to COVID. In addition to graciously keeping our contract for the next year, Magdalene was an amazing addition to our wedding. She was available to give input on a change in the ceremony venue, decided on less than a month before the wedding, and was very helpful in keeping me calm and reassured throughout the process.
On the day before the wedding, Magdalene and our videographers walked around Mykonos town with us. She immediately made us feel at ease. Her style, more documentary or photojournalist than a "traditional" wedding, was exactly what we needed. She obtained such gorgeous, candid shots, which exactly captured the moments we wanted to remember. Her encouragement helped us act naturally and the beautiful photographs are a testament to her "behind-the-scenes" approach. Her photographs are just spectacular.
On the day of the wedding, Magdalene was careful to capture so many small elements, and not just the traditional ones (dress, shoes, accessories, etc). She took time to get to know us, to understand what traditions were important to us, and to highlight the small details that we had worked so hard to create. An intimate place setting for dinner. The traditional Palestinian embroidery and olive branches that we wanted to incorporate. She did it all in such a remarkable, low-key manner. When we got our photos back (and so quickly!), I couldn't believe the photos she was able to get - I don't even remember seeing her at some parts!
All I can say is that we were truly lucky to have found Magdalene as our wedding photographer. I am happy to discuss her work with any interested couple. I give her my absolute highest recommendation and need to find a reason to go to Greece to work with her again.
