Beautiful sunset view from Oia Castle overlooking Amoudi Bay and the colorful village of Oia on the Greek island of Santorini

 

This collection of Santorini Honeymoon photos showcase the stunning beauty of this small Greek island on the Aegean Sea.

Santorini is one of the most popular honeymoon locations in the world, and specifically, the small village of Oia. Oia lies on the northwest part of the island and features stunning whitewashed homes, with splashes of color, carved deep into the cliffside. The village overlooks the gorgeous blue waters of the caldera and makes it an ideal spot to take in sunset. Oia is truly a photographers dream.

My most awesome couple, Mai & Houa, had been guests at a couple different weddings I shot over the years, both in Minnesota and Hawaii. When they contacted me about joining them to shoot a Santorini honeymoon photo session, I couldn’t have been more excited. I’d been wanting to visit this iconic location for years. Mai & Houa had a small traditional Hmong wedding ceremony at their family home in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I loved their idea of having a simple wedding ceremony with their family, followed by an adventure of a lifetime.

We started our photo session bright and early to catch sunrise. We spent a couple hours exploring all the nooks and crannies of Oia. Some of our favorite spots, as shown below, were the Three Blue Domes, the views from Oia Castle, all the unique stairs & pathways, and the fun color pop of the Kastro Oia Houses.
