Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

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.

Manos, we were so lucky to have you capturing the fun and interesting experience in Athens. It felt like you were a caring and attentive friend taking photo of us instead of a stranger! You tried to understand what we wanted and proposed something way better. The entire photoshoot felt very casual and light hearted, we had so much fun in the process! The end result was amazing and we love the photos. Can’t stop ourselves from viewing over and over again. Having you as our photographer was nothing but a great experience and super nice photos. If there is a chance, we will definitely work with you again!

Dear Manos, I could say that you are already the most prolific, alternative and modern photographer in Athens. Given the fact that your international projects are increasing, it is only a matter of time until you enter the top wedding photography lists in a global scale. Thank you Manos !

Marios & Andriani

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!!

Sophie & Vagelis

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!

 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!
