A bit about me...
Photography is about capturing souls… Photography is a form of art that fills you with unique feelings, with feelings of joy, truth; feelings that overwhelm you. Wedding photography is about strong feelings and moments of a lifetime. As a professional wedding photographer I have had the great honour not just take photos but create them. Being able to see and experience unique moments with couples and their families is a precious gift. Capturing authentic emotion is my dream come true.
I have always wanted to capture souls not just faces. One gets overwhelmed when the father delivers the bride to her future husband while the mother sees the couple bursting with joy and it brings tears to her eyes. You get emotional when the mother and the bride have a little talk just before the ceremony leading them both in tears of happiness. You feel respectful when you see the strong family bonds getting even stronger. You feel glad to see people, relatives and friends smiling and experiencing this unparalleled day together. You can feel that sweet tension right in the first shot.
Many people ask me how I can ‘nose out’ these moments. The truth is I don’t perceive them by the eye. I follow my heart; that way, truth and love unfolds. I have always worked following my feelings. One thing that makes a great photo is the ability to convey emotion. I have tried to express people’s feelings through photography and capture real moments. Wedding photography is not about just a picture, it’s about making a moment everlasting. Wedding photography is different from any other kind of photography as extraordinary feelings and emotions are attached to wedding photographs. Every wedding is unique as every one of you is. Your wedding photos cannot be ordinary.
Photography is my calling, my profession, and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday.
My name is Eleni Dona, I’m mother, wife, photographer and I live in beautiful Greece. I have worked with many couples over the years and I feel blessed to share moments and feelings with them. Capturing your big day would deeply honour me. My goal is to create your memories not just pictures.
