2.) Volcanic Landscape

It is a natural wonder of the world thanks to the famous volcanic eruption that took place thousands of years ago, forming the island and giving its shape and geomorphology. The scenic views, unique volcanic pictures, breathtaking caldera, and lunar landscapes are all a result of this eruption. Everything in Santorini appears to fit in in perfect harmony.

The island’s architecture is comprised of blue domes, paved paths, candy-colored houses and white sands all of which blend in with the island’s surroundings forming a view so spectacular! While down here, treat yourself and your loved one to a stay in a top-notch hotel by the caldera cliffs and get your senses aroused by the Jacuzzi and infinity pool facilities.

Places to Go and Things to do in Santorini, Greece

Santorini does not fall short of activities you can immerse yourself into to spice up your trip from hiking, horse riding by the beach, an array of water sports, volcano trips to sailing tours. If you’re big on fun and partying, Santorini’s nightlife, especially in Fira, will unquestionably meet and surpass your expectations.

Santorini is archeologically-endowed with a variety of archeological sites and museums to portray its rich history and culture. The island’s dishes are quite versatile and delicious in equal measure. This is as a result of the fertile land which came to existence after the volcanic eruption. Santorini prides in huge vineyards and exquisite wine varieties. This makes it renowned for its top-notch wine-making. There’s something for everyone here. Being a tremendous natural beauty, get lost in this gem’s romantic aura with your fiancé and have your engagement/proposal photographer in Santorini capture every moment of pure love and bliss.

1.) Photo Shoot Session at Caldera

Approximately 3600 years ago, there was a volcanic eruption that occurred creating the beauty we see and experience today. The crater that remained afterwards is the caldera. It is 12 by 7 kilometers in measurement. Two islets with gas emissions and hot springs emerge in its heart and you can go on an excursion to the caldera by boat and get to bathe in the hot springs. Better yet, affordable and the best of photographers in Santorini will be at your disposal to help you document every moment as it takes place.

2.) Family Trip to The Beach at Perissa

Meet Santorini’s most popular and best-known beaches. Located between the villages of Perivolos and Perissa lies the beach stretching in pure and sheer majesty for over six kilometers and carpeted by fine black volcanic sand. The tamarisk trees backing it are a nice add-on to the beach’s scenery.

There’s a string of seafood tavernas as well as cafes overlooking it for a taste of Santorini’s sea cuisines. If you happen to be enjoying some great times with your family, our family photographer in Santorini will be pleased to capture some great pics to post on Instagram

3.) Let Your Personal Photographer take you to Fira

Patched on the cliffs some 300 meters above the caldera, is Santorini’s capital; Fira. This beauty-full town is made up of winding lanes, whitewashed cubic houses, blue-domed churches, and little squares. From the port of Skala which is below the town, you can get to the town of Fira by simply taking a walk or riding a mule-for-hire up the 587 steps.

Alternatively, you can take the cable-car route. Fira primarily thrives on tourism and most of its buildings are either restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops or jewelry stores. Tag a personal photographer in Santorini along and you can be certain that they’ll make your vacay worth the while by capturing some fun family photos together.
