A Visual Love Letter to Santorini, Greece

February 24, 2016

“Santorini may well have conquered a corner of your imagination before you’ve even set eyes on it.” — Lonely Planet

For as long as I can remember, I dreamed of the magical island of Santorini where pastel villages cover the caldera.

But not even years of dreaming could of prepared me for the completely spectacular beauty that is Santorini.

A true photographer’s paradise, there is beauty waiting to be captured around every corner of this place where quaint villages abound.

A destination where the best way to start your day is early & with an adventurous spirit.

Traditionally famous for its sunsets from the picturesque village of Oia–it was instead the sunrises that truly captivated me.

A moment where the world awakens around you, birds chirp & the sun slowly paints the village pastel with light.

Spend your afternoons at one of the beautiful beaches where the best way to get around is indeed not for the faint of heart– by ATV or a donkey!

Evenings can be enjoyed whilst wandering down cobblestone alleys.

And you are sure to be greeted by a few of the island’s locals.

For the night owls, your day surely doesn’t have to end there since the discos go on dancing until the morning light rises again

Beautiful beaches, breathtaking views, amazing food, friendly people—Santorini has it all.

But it really is one of those places you have to see to believe.
