When it’s all about you and your One Love, roaming the most beautiful spots on Ios Island in the Cyclades for your romantic portraits is a must!

To each and every one of us, couple holidays mean an entirely different thing. Some like to luxuriate in a grand, all-inclusive resort, others dream of spending time together adventuring from one location to the next without any agenda … for Sossan & Nikos, it was all about coming home to his motherland so that his beloved could get a better feel of what it is like to live your myth in Greece.

Their destination? Ios island, the “surprise” of the Cycladic cluster, which also happens to be one of the newest, hottest, Greece destination wedding locations! Roaming the most beautiful spots in Ios was among Sossan and Nikos’ plans. So when they asked us to capture their romance on Little Malta, as travellers fondly call Ios, we hopped a boat from Santorini where we were already staying for a 5-day wedding and joined them.

Now if you’ve ever visited the legendary poet Homer’s last resting place, you’ll already be familiar with its multitude of routes, crystal clear waters, and most epic sunset views. Ios’ clifftop villages offer just the perfect opportunity for foodie pursuits, while exciting underwater adventures await in its remote beaches and surrounding caves.

Our couple paused between explorations and tastings for an afternoon devoted to romantic portraits and, as you can see in their images, it was nothing short of dreamy.
