How does a wedding planner connect with a photographer (in our case with many and amazing ones)? How do all the beautiful artful details, from grand to delicate, come together to create and navigate through a couple's wedding vision, and how does a large band of creatives, outstanding vendors, and yours truly spend two days on a mountain resort? The answer is, of course, The City Owl, the wedding photography workshop hosted by my dear friend and super talented fine art wedding photographer Sotiris Tsakanikas.

Our "home" for these two days was Apolimeni Petra, a mountain retreat perched in the woods of Taxiarhis (a picture-perfect village in Poligyros). Think pretty and cozy mountain wood cabins, 20 acres of wonderfully trimmed pine and oak corseted land, fireplaces, glass rooftops, and the best team and crews on board.

We started our shooting day with a boudoir session drenched in milky light, with our bride indulging in the love letters of her beloved one, and through the day we gradually set up different woodland locations for the couple's stationery and pre-wedding fine details.
