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. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.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
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

Fabio e Milena

Hi Fabrizio! We are writing to the man and friend in the first place, not only to the photographer. Your photos have a communicative force that often transcends the moment of the shoot, but above all they convey what you are - they are kind, attentive and caring, strong and incisive, sweet. And exactly because of your unique way of perceiving the world we shared and have chosen, other than offering our compliments for your professionalism and technique, we want to talk about the journey you led us through. Sitting in your studio, imagining how it would be, you made us emotional, you literally conjured the scenes before our very eyes. You took us by the hand, you led us in the most beautiful day of our lives well before you we reached the established date. You gave us peace, you managed our embarrassment about being at the centre of the attention, you guided us, you allowed us to feel at ease and, as a result, to be spontaneous and serene. It was only then that you took your camera and you got down to work. You were an important point of reference throughout our day, for us and for our loved ones, a discreet presence, but also an attentive and helpful one. We fully enjoyed the day, energized and happy for what we were experiencing and we had a great time as I am sure you had too. The final outcome turned to be wonderful photos, where we recognize ourselves in and through them relive the emotions of that moment - with such an impact that we continue to remain breathless. Every shot has its own history, its own emotion and its very own beauty. 'Thank you' is what we are writing, but words are not enough to express everything. Fabio e Milena

"Dear Hrisi, We would like to express our deepest gratitude towards you as our wedding photographer. When we began to plan our wedding, we had to decide about a lot of things, but one thing that we knew for sure was that we wanted to have you as the photographer on our special day. The photos in your portfolio were so amazing that captured our imagination and made us inpatient for the big day. We had really high expectations towards you but you were able not only to meet them but also to exceed them through your talent and professionalism. Your friendly attitude, care and attention made us and our guests feel so comfortable and at ease all the time. We can’t forget that you were with us from early in the morning until late in the night, capturing with your magical eye all of our important moments. These photos will always remind us of the amazing wedding day that we had, the wonderful time spent and all the emotions shared with our closest friends and families. We would like to wish you to keep your artistic touch and will be more than happy to share with you the forthcoming special moments of our life as husband and wife!" Iskren and Teodora
