Home to gorgeous whitewashed, cubiform houses, Santorini is a romantic destination that’s perfect for any photoshoot. Whether you’re planning an engagement photoshoot, a honeymoon photoshoot, or even a solo photoshoot, Santorini offers stunning backdrops and unforgettable views. While it can be extremely exciting to plan your photoshoot in Santorini, it can be overwhelming when deciding what to wear! Luckily, we’ve put together some helpful tips so you’ll not only feel amazing, you’ll look fantastic too!
BREAK OUT THE BLUES
Blue looks extraordinary against the whitewashed walls of Santorini. Not to mention the blue Santorini church domes and doors as well as the breathtaking Aegean Sea. Royal blues will look best in this environment, but any hue of blue will make for a picture perfect scene!
ADD A POP OF COLOR
If you decide to have a photoshoot in Santorini during dawn or dusk – or what we in the photography business like to call the golden hour – it may be fun to add a pop of orange, pink, or yellow. These colors will help to bring out the golden colors in the sky– picture that with the bright blue Aegean Sea in the background!
DON’T BE AFRAID OF WHITE
Of course, you don’t want to blend in with the signature white walls that surround Santorini – however, if you’re doing a couples photoshoot, it can make for great photos if one person wears white. Many ladies opt for white dresses (whether it’s a wedding shoot or not) and, when paired with their partner’s pop of color, it makes for some incredible photos! Wearing white also allows the surrounding blues of the sea and other accents to shine through.
KEEP TEMPERATURES IN MIND
In terms of weather, it’s really never a bad time to go to Santorini. In fact, in December temperatures only go as low as 50F. July and August see the warmest temperatures, with highs around 85F. The months of May through September see the least amount of rain and may be the best times to plan your vacation photoshoot in Santorini. If you’re going in the off-season, be sure to bring a few layers to play around with and you’ll be fine!
