In August I traveled to Mykonos, Greece to photograph a couple’s engagement, and then their wedding in Athens, Greece. I spent a full day wandering the streets of Mykonos to soak up as much of the sights as I could. Mykonos is lined with white buildings, walls and paths that are adorned with playfully painted windows and doors in the most vibrant tropical colors. Each is unique in texture and/or color, creating its own identity.
I visited the rocky beach and watched the seagulls wait for scraps from the locals shucking oysters, wandered to the ancient Church of Paraportiani, and visited the local street vendors. The locals were very accommodating and spoke wonderful English. I would go back in a heartbeat if I could and visit the rest of the islands! Greece is beautiful, laid back and full of visual eye candy.
