Heartwarming Wedding with a First Look | Mary + Yiannis

Your First Look

One of the highlights on a wedding day is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time. The moments of the first look wedding photos are the couple’s private moment to admire each other before the actual wedding day begins. It is their moment, their wedding reality check… their aha moment of “here we are – I love you – let’s do this”. This brief period after all the wedding preparations and before the wedding ceremony and celebrations with their family and friends.


Wedding Day

I met Mary 4 years before her wedding. A girl with great enthusiasm and passion bubbling joyously about life, future plans, and love. I was more than thrilled to be a part of her engaging a couple of years later and then her beautiful wedding with Yiannis.

The happy couple was determined to have first look wedding photos. I am really a fan of first looks. A wedding day is full of exciting moments and love explosion by family and friends that cannot hold down their excitement to share their affection for you and their delight for your wedding. In other words, the entire wedding day is a day full of people.

A first look takes only a few seconds and you get to share a very special moment with the only love of your life. It’s the tiny jiff that you can get to calm your worries and at the same time look that glow at your companion’s eyes without any distractions. It’s a feeling that will last forever!


Day After Wedding Photos

The wedding day went perfectly even though a cloud or two might try to menace us above our heads. Just a beautiful overcast that treated us with a much-welcomed freshness in the heart of a very hot summer.

A day after wedding photo shoot was a must for this couple. Very much in love with photos and stable on their ideas that images will become the heirloom of their wedding day, Mary and Yiannis decided to do a day after session. Mary was very excited to have the opportunity to wear her wedding dress again! After all, why wear it once?

It was a beautiful morning and the sun on that blue sky gave us the most amazing light ever! The newlywed couple has lost all of the before-wedding nervousness and anticipation for the big day and was relaxed. They enjoyed their deep emotional connection throughout the wedding photo session.


About First Look Wedding Photos

The first look wedding session is a relatively new addition to the wedding photography experience of before or after wedding traditional captures. The first look photos are solely dedicated to one-on-one portraits between the bride and groom where they see each other for the first time prior to the ceremony.

First looks are unique and unpredictable. And that’s the magic of them. You have the chance to freeze the brilliant moment of a genuine excitement between the couple. That’s the second that they both realize, “this is our wedding day… today is the day… our big yes-day”.

The first look wedding photos are by far the most precious clicks on a wedding day, because these moments are intimate and are dedicated to the couple. – Monika Kritikou

For those that have already experienced that enlighting sparkle in the eyes of their spouse, they know how important it is to cherish it forever! You are the stars of the day. But also, you are a girl & a boy ready to take a leap of faith into the unknown world of marriage. Looking astonishing with your brand new wedding attires and flawless hairstyle. You will never get a second chance to save that moment.

This first look photos can literally slow down time for you. It creates a cozy and personal atmosphere like a time capsule for your love.  Most importantly, this quiet moment helps both of you to get out of the anxiety and make you look relaxed and comfortable for the rest of the photos.


Your Wedding Photographer

Wedding photography is all about taking notes in a journal that is built with the invisible ink of time. Together we hold a slice of immortality into our restless journey in life. Every wedding photo album is a winning trophy in the race of time. Photographs shout out that we were here, alive and kicking, in love, happy, young, carefree and with a heart full of dreams.

I adore natural and timeless images where your unique moments are captured for life. But mostly I care for telling your love story through my camera. I want to witness your heartbeat, your voice, your silent moments, all the secret glances and tender neck kisses… I am your personal storyteller, dedicated to bringing into light your intimate bond.


Film Wedding Photography

I am a photographer. An unstoppable personal storyteller and a film wedding photographer. Taking pictures makes me feel that I have found my mission on earth. I am driven by love for beauty and real emotions. Being an active storytelling wedding photographer for more than 10 years keeps me always on the road for photography adventures.

The beauty of weddings is the reason why I chose to be a wedding photographer: to witness all the authentic moments and being able to capture them for you to remember. I want to show through my images how precious your story is, how beautiful you are…

I want to become the storyteller of your wedding and let the important people of your life see your beauty and passion. To portray the excitement, the joy, the magic… the dreams and wishes that come true on your wedding day!

Book your Photographer in Advance

The power of photos does not stop at the feelings you experience when you see the subject that appears on them. It goes much deeper by remembering the beauty of the moments behind the camera, the exact jiff you’ve made that tiny, little, instantaneous click.

For me, photography brings into my mind the most wonderful, joyous, relaxed and happy moments spent with my special ones or family or friends… So, to an extent, you can say that a good photographer has superpowers… being able to recreate priceless memories that otherwise can be misplaced in our labyrinthine minds… And Fiorello Photography is here to keep your memories alive!
