This was quite possibly the dreamiest photo shoot I’ve ever done.
Golden hours are always special but combine one with stunning white houses and views (of Greek islands and a sunset) that are just to-die-for and you’ve got yourself something quite magical. Santorini is one of those places that doesn’t just live up to expectations, it surpasses it.
We’ve done our best to capture it with the gorgeous warm glow of these photographs, and if I were able to bottle the feeling of sitting on those steps watching the sun go down I would. I’d also take the light home and use it on every photo shoot, ever. It couldn’t have been more flattering…!
As the evenings were so warm in Santorini, I was still wearing the shorts and top I’d had on during the day for the daily sunset-watching ritual. The Greek-style embroidered top was one of those “I HAVE to have that for my holiday!” sale purchases before we left (Dorothy Perkins, I picked up some brilliant things in their sale), and the shorts are years old but rarely get worn in UK summers. A few of my much-worn extras finish off the outfit perfectly: Mirrored aviators (I’d love to get the proper Ray-Ban originals), a classic straw hat and those suede cuffed sandals again.
I’ll be so sad to finally put away my summer clothes (this weekend, boo), but I have to admit to myself it’s autumn at some point I guess 😉
What was YOUR highlight of the summer? I’ll never forget watching these sunsets every night for two weeks, so next summer has a lot to live up to! Do share in the comments!
