Sven & Lisa First Look Photos - Wedding at Villa Aelia
On the “first look” wedding photos when a couple sees each other on their wedding day before their wedding ceremony.
The wedding photographer may be the only “eye” that watch that scene and he should be more discreet than any other moment. The most important on this moment is to remember that is a unique, quiet, private moment for the couple and it should stay like this. An emotional memory, just for the couple away from the eyes of family and friends. It’s a lovely newer wedding day tradition.
On the wedding of Sven and Lisa in Villa Aelia in Aegina Island, that moment took place by the roots of an olive tree, the symbol of peace, power and long living life. dating back to ancient Greek mythology. Myth tells us that Zeus held a contest between Poseidon and Athena for control over Athens, asking both to make an offering. Poseidon smashed his trident against a rock, producing a spring, while Athena called forth an olive tree with soft, silver-green leaves and an abundance of fruit. Zeus declared Athena the winner, and the olive tree has been an important Greek mythological symbol ever since.
For one more time (from the last wedding photography in villa Aelia), I have the chance to experience and capture the magnificent view from the Villa Aelia that gave us the perfect backround of Perdika village, for the couple photos and best men – best woman group wedding photos. A moment after, the beloved guests of the couple, was waiting for them to share their love before the ceremony starts.
More on the photos that follows. All the best to Lisa and Sven.
