I am a photographic storyteller. I love being an observer of real life! As a wedding photojournalist, I capture events spontaneously to emphasize moments & emotions, in order to present the story of your day through the photographs. I am based in Rhodes, Greece but available to cover weddings all over the world. Regarding my background, had studied fine art and later got master in digital image by Metropolitan university in London. Being a painter, a video artist and a mother of 3 amazing kids has influenced a lot my shooting style. I did participate in many exhibitions and received distinctions such as from BBC video art distinction & Adobe's award in digital imaging world festival in Australia.
My typical clientele consists of couples that look for something different on their wedding day, photos that capture feelings. I feel honored each time I am chosen for such a special day!
I do cover preparation, ceremony and reception. My wedding packages consist of luxurious flush mount books or traditional handmade ones, prints or photobooks, online gallery with password and high res files on cd. Samples of my work and testimonials are at www.mkourti.com
