My name is Elena Haralabaki and I am a professional wedding photographer. I absolutely love photography as it's giving me the creative fulfillment that I seek in my everyday life!

Athens wedding photography by Manos Skoularikos of Attica Greece

My photographic journey starts a bit differently than usual, by not “owning a camera since I was young” but by a hobby, I used to have since I was little. The curiosity of observation. I always loved to observe people, their surroundings and fill my eyes with pictures and colors. 
And this simply because a thousand words, emotions, smells as well as music and melodies can fit into a photograph.
 The biggest part of my cinematic style was formed by my love for cinema. 

Last but not least music played a big part in me becoming a photographer. Believe it or not, photographs have music within them. Looking at a photograph that evokes emotion is the same as listening to a song that evokes an emotion and these can be combined into one/become one: a photograph that brings to mind a melody or a song.
 In conclusion, I found a way to transform all the songs that created pictures in my mind by capturing little but significant moments of life.
 I used to compose music, but when I stopped I had to find a way to bring out all these images in mind, and that’s how my journey into photography begins. [Athens Wedding Photographer]

Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable.

Manos you made us feel like home from our very first meeting!
 The truth is that the thought of getting photographed always made us feel uncomfortable and we believed that we wouldn’t meet the expectations and that you would be “tortured”! 
 But with your guidance, patience and discreetness the result surpassed our expectations!

 The way you use the natural surroundings is unique!
 We were really impressed on how focused you were on your job We found a professional and a friend in the same person! 
Magnificent, unique photos!
 Photographer of our hearts thank you for everything from the very depth of our hearts!

You exceeded every expectation!! it goes without saying that our pictures were awesome but one thing that we really wanted was to not be pestered for pictures all day. You did a great job blending in and managed to take the stress out of everything. You were fantastic, giving direction where needed but not over the top. The photos capture the feeling of the day and we are glad we chose you! Bless you Manos!!

One of a kind! Manos your work is every word of your motto. I believe that If someone is looking for a photographer to take photos at their event, then Manos you are most probably not that guy. But If they want someone to capture the moments, the stories, the emotions, then I cannot recommend you enough! For us, the memories from our wedding might have been different had we chosen someone else; and this is a such a special quality!
