Magdalene Kourti

Wedding Photographer in Greece

I am Magdalene, an award-winning visual artist & photographer who is inspired by emotions and light! I have studied fine arts and digital arts, in London. Moreover did participate in many exhibitions and experimental short film festivals and received distinctions such as from BBC and the Adobe’s award in digital imaging world festival in Australia. I love observing the beauty of life in many forms both traditional as painting, and contemporary as photography and digital arts. I am into documentary wedding photography since 2009.
Being a painter, a video artist and a mother of 3 amazing kids, have influenced a lot my shooting style. I love traveling and going to film and music festivals. I love sushi, yoga, and meditation. I love the warm sun on my face, the weightlessness and the silence in the sea, the sound of the wind; I love my cats, my Vivo barefoot boots and sci-fi movies. I love the big smiles and positive thinkers!
As a photographer in Greece, I am mostly into the island, summer weddings, as on Rhodes, Crete, Corfu, Hydra, Spetses, Santorini, Amorgos, Naxos, Mykonos, and many other islands, but also city weddings as in Athens, Thessaloniki, Larnaca, Nicosia, etc. Thank you that you have considered me to document your wedding!

Adriana & Anastasios

Having a destination wedding often means having to celebrate without the presence of all your loved ones, we go home knowing that through our photos we can relive our special day with them, moment by moment. Thank you for authentically and candidly capturing our love,

We are very happy with the photographs – they really capture the emotions of the day. A lot of them are highly artistic, resembling a painting that you could hang up and admire. We were also amazed by how quickly we got the photographs back (one week after the wedding!) which is lovely if you want to beat the wedding blues. Thanks so much guys!

Thank you for taking our wedding photographs and giving us the most beautiful pictures that completely tell the story of our day… nothing staged, nothing posed, just breathtaking beautiful pictures that capture us completely. I can’t wait to come back for an anniversary and have some more done.

Eavan and Dominic

I found you Magdalene on a website in the Uk and I was so relieved as your photos were so beautiful and artistic, just how I wished my photos to look. Organising a wedding in Greece from the Uk is not easy but you were a pleasure to organise the day with, you were quick to reply to emails and patient and understanding. On the day I did not even notice you and your colleague Kostas where there. You were not instructive and where happy to take capture any aspect of the day we wanted. When we saw the photos that you took of our wedding in Monemvasia in Greece which is an old medieval village within a fortress wall, we could not believe how amazing the photos looked with the artistic angle and effect you used they are such stunning. They are just how I wished my photos to look. Magdalene, you have captured the expressions of happiness on everyones faces and each moments that I wanted to have captured in a photo forever. We will treasure these photos and the video for ever. Thank you for creating such beautiful memories for us.

I cannot thank you enough for such amazing and breath taking pictures you've capture on our special day, so much so that it had moved some our family and friends to tears. We feel so blessed to have had you as our photograhper, not only because your work are so beautifully stunning but because you was so calm, reassuring and humble. Having you there really helped calm my nerves and stress considering I was running behind time on getting ready. We didn't feel that you were there taking photos, it felt that you were there as our guest. Having our wedding photos edited and cured within 4 days is absolutely unheard of in the UK as it usually we usually have to wait 3-4 weeks. You was my first choice of all the photographers we had looked at, I felt an instanct connection. We were thrilled to learn that you fitted right within our budget, it was too good to be true, it was meant to be!!!! I hope we can stay in touch and wish you all the best. Warmest regards Simon and Lily x

Han and Eleutherios

As soon as our big day was behind us, we started checking our mailbox … waiting for your pictures. After no more than one week, your e-mail arrived. When looking at the shots, it was as if we were reliving the most beautiful day of our lives. The pictures really moved us… we watched them with laughter and tears of joy. We cannot thank you enough for these beautiful photo’s that are complementary to our memories. With these pictures, we will never stop realizing that our wedding day was as beautiful in reality as it is in our memories. It is amazing how you succeeded in photographing the things that matter the most to us, and this in their typical style and with the unparalleled talent to make themselves invisible during the day. As a result, the pictures don’t show any poses, but rather truly experienced moments. This is exactly what we were looking and hoping for! In addition, it is always great to meet nice people such as you and your co partner. We hope it was a pleasant day for you as well. And who knows… maybe we’ll meet again someday on the occasion of a baptism! With the kindest regards, Han & Lefteri from Belgium/Crete

Christina & Ioakem

We have been looking at the pictures again and again. We looove them and we are so happy! You did such an amazing job. Some friends cannot believe it's us ;-) We knew when we chose you to be our wedding photographer that we were in good hands as we had seen your work. When we started exchanging e-mails you always came across as a very understanding and supportive person. When we met you struck us with your true professionalism and warm, kind and charming personality - and I felt like you were almost a friend. Thank you for capturing all these beautiful memories that will be with us forever. Warm regards.

Andrea & Neil

I would like to both commend and thank you for your work on our wedding photography. My husband and I did vast amounts of research to find the right person to photograph our event. We thought we may not hire any photographer as we didn't want any cheesy cookie-cutter style poses or photographs. We are both designers and hence very particular about any artwork and/or photography in our lives. We found you through a blog of a wedding planner and loved your work as it's so natural and real. It looked like you attend an event and take personalized photos of special moments. We found all of that and more with the photos you took of our wedding. You were a part of day that was not obtrusive or annoying (I hardly even noticed you, to be honest). Your style of working with people was kind and nurturing without posing or styling anyone. Better than the experience on the day itself is the outcome. The photos are absolutely amazing and better than we had hoped for. You captured the intimate moments and the funny ones; the bridal party and the guests; the food and the decorations. There are too many fantastic photos to edit down and that is a gift in an of itself. I would recommend working with you to anyone looking for a real and artistic approach to photography. I hope that our paths cross again someday as I'd love to hire and work with you again. Best wishes and many thanks.

You captured our wedding in Lindos and you are absolutely wonderful. The pictures are amazing and on the wedding day you don't even realise you are there. Magdalene you are so discreet! I would recommend you to anyone getting married in Greece to use you, if they want stunning memories of their special day. Thanks Magdalene.

Long & Maggie

Magdalene, at my first sight of your website, I was really impressed! Your picture has the soul, delivering exactly the feeling and emotion of the bride and groom. Then my wife and I were very lucky to have you to be our wedding photographer. You spent the whole day with us in Santorini for shooting. We had fun! When looking at finished pictures, my wife and I were right off pleasantly surprised with use of textures...old walls, wonderful colors represented by blue churches.. contrast of red mountain and ocean! One must have an eye to discover such things and use these! Magdalene, you made it! In addition, I love the way of extensive use of contrasts to underline particular detail! It is really powerful!! For instance, one picture that I sat in a long chair tying my shoe laces, while my wife was making up!! Such an ordinary scenario, you used w/b contracts to deliver an kind of classic moment before wedding!! So cool!! Anyway, Magdalene really you have the skill, eye, imagination,and the talent to deliver great shots!!!!
