Memory clings to the wall
bent sapling, hair blowing
mast bent to the starboard.
The wind forever in motion
because time stumbles in darkness
on a splinter of light
“Camera” – A. M. Sullivan
A Poet with a Camera
Hello, I am Kostas. My passion for cinema, music, and poetry has always been my driving force. Back in high school, I used to write poetry and play guitar in a pop band.
After acquiring a strong scientific background in university, life has led me to follow different professional paths, focusing first on academic research and consequently on finance and business. But I never really found myself in this. I have eventually decided to quit office life and find my way back to arts, as a filmmaker and as a photographer. This made me start writing again.
I am a destination wedding filmmaker, based in Greece, Italy, and France. Available all around Europe and the world to document your story in the most authentic and personal way. My philosophy is to focus on the things that matter the most: people, moments, and emotions. This is what makes your film unique, representative of who you are, and a treasured heirloom for you and your family.
Connection, Dedication & Trust
my Professional Ethos
Forget about clichés and protocols! Your wedding film is not a copy-paste of another couple’s film. An authentic story is told from the heart: I love hearing all the details about you and your journey together. The way you met, the things you like to do, your dreams. All this helps me identify and unfold the story. Connecting with you on a personal level, and building a true relationship based on mutual trust is a crucial part of the process. This is how I can create a short documentary which is not only about the story of your day, but about your story as a couple in the first place.
Outdoors intimate weddings and adventure elopements always provide the best opportunity to spend more time with you and to unfold the story in the most creative and distinctive way. But, my advice as a wedding filmmaker, is to plan the celebration that represents your own, in-your-zone, personalities and that gives you the freedom to be yourselves. Your wedding day is all about you.
Why Book Me for your Wedding Film
your trusted storyteller
When planning your destination wedding you may feel overwhelmed with vendors, timelines, packages, guest list menus, and legal requirements. Looking back after a few years, you’ll be able to see the bigger picture and realize that what matters is the essence of your wedding relationship and your story in the first place. Although this sounds like a cliché, your wedding film and pictures are the most important keepsakes from your celebration day. Here are three reasons why you should consider booking me as your wedding filmmaker.

"We would like to deeply thank you. We spent the whole night crying, laughing and remembering our great day. We had to watch our film 3 times to recover. Indeed you smashed us! That was incredible, a perfect resume of our wedding day and beyond our expectations. We are really blessed and lucky to have had you as our wedding filmmaker. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you so much!"

"With so many expenses (seemingly endless) with a wedding, its hard to believe that we thought about whether or not a videographer was necessary. Working with Kostas was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding. He has captured the weekend brilliantly, breathing fresh life in to our already vibrant memories of the day. His video crafts a beautiful story of our day, perfectly balanced to reflect every detail. His storytelling is spectacular, and Kostas has the vision and cinematography skills to match. A warm and consulate professional, working with him was a pleasure, there was no drama or demandingness that I hear friends talk of about their photographers or videographers. Once all the drama and stress of the weekend is passed, the memories slightly faded, having these videos to watch back brings back such a flood of emotions, we are so grateful to Kostas for what he has given us. After watching his work, we just want to do it all again!"

"There are a million decisions to make about your wedding day but fortunately this one doesn’t have to be! Reaching out to Kostas was the best decision we made for the most important day of our lives, and I hope you will too.
Firstly, I am not comfortable at all in front of a camera, my wife is a bit more than me, but it isn't typically either of our happy places. Almost immediately Kostas had us at ease, zipping us around Santorini with him and his assistant, feeling like we were catching up with old friends we've known our entire lives. I knew the video would be amazing, but what I didn’t know beforehand was what an enjoyable experience it would be. And, what he was able to capture in film continues to blow us away every time we watch it. I’m completely confident that 30 years from now I’ll still be able to be transported back to these magic moments just from watching the short film.
The film, ineffable, so hard to describe its value with written words, it is art at its highest level. He so perfectly captured us and our love story in a way that I did not know was possible. The format, the shots, the audio choices, and the syncing of music to film all come together in the most beautiful way. Where descriptive words fail anecdotes often work better so I’ll leave you with this one. Have I made it through the video without tearing up, from the overwhelming emotion that it elicits, in over a dozen viewings? I haven’t yet and I don’t expect that I ever will-and I love that!"

"I found Kostas through Instagram; it didn't take more than watching a single one of his videos to know that his creations were unlike any other. Kostas is heart-centered and therefore, he approaches his craft with emotion and deep intention. He asked for a pre-interview with us so he could get to know us. Details that we shared on that day (years before our wedding, due to the pandemic) were ultimately woven into the video and his recent blogpost - what does that tell me? It tells me that he listens carefully and pays close attention to detail - attributes that undoubtedly shine through his work.
In addition to the spectacular visuals, Kostas captures and incorporates all of the sounds that you want to remember - for example, the traditional acoustic music, the occasional banter and laughs, loud frogs in the quarry - audio details that take you back to the day. Again, this is all in addition to how he uses natural lighting, his exceptional equipment, and the landscape to present you at your best.
What meant the most to us was that Kostas incorporates storytelling, symbolism, and poetic tie-ins. I honestly can say that our video beautifully represents my husband and I as a unit, separately as individuals, and the community we've built. In the few interactions we had, Kostas was able to piece this all together and create a work of art that we will treasure forever.
Thank you, dear Kostas, for being our most treasured partner in our celebration of love. We can only speak the highest of your talent, your heart, and your passion. The video you created brings us the greatest joy and there aren't enough words to express just how grateful we are <3

"Kostas is the best. My husband and I are beyond blessed to have found him. Not only did he brave the Icelandic storms with us to take one of the most breathtaking photos, he also produced an exceptional film telling our story. With so much creativity to offer, Kostas will definitely deliver beyond your expectations. He takes the time to get to know us as a couple and cater to our preferences with utmost patience.
I'm glad to have shared my elopement wedding with this fantastic artist, and made a great friend in the meantime."

"Working with Kostas has been truly amazing♥️ I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional artistic videographer.
Living in the Bay Area, CA and working with him via zoom for my Italian wedding was seamless. During the shoot, you didn’t even notice he was busy filming in the background and getting shots from our location and panoramic views with the drone. You need to see his work! The final video product is tasteful, artistic and captured so much more than we had imagined. From the trailer to the full film what a wonderful way he was able to catch the little details that make us a couple. He used our voice to tell our story. We will forever be grateful for our wedding video. His work is poetic and forever will be cherished. Every time I watch the trailer and film I catch new things. Such a joy!!!"
Eve & Mario
"Kostas, this is the art that saves love. We are just trying to love each other the best we can when seemingly everything else in the world would have us suffer and fail. This film is emotional mindfulness. Just as the images we create as photographers. Pause-look-feel-remember. It's a priceless gift. Thank you-so deeply"
Lindsey & Dune
"I eloped in Iceland a few months ago and WOW what an experience! I'm so thankful that we have this beautiful masterpiece to share with our families and look back on for years to come. Kostas is a DREAM to work with; calm, cool and collected, he captured Kevin and I in a way I could have never imagined, all while trying to outrun a blizzard! Watching our video transports me back to my wedding day in such a way that is unexplainable, it brings tears to my eyes every time. Thank you for truly capturing the essence of our love"
Vanna & Kevin
If we ever had to do our elopement in Crete, Greece ever again we would still use Kostas service! His professionalism is impeccable! He went far and beyond! We chose him because of his great storytelling. The way he tells the story is something else. Kosta is a very nice person. We became comfortable with him since day one. During the “production” he came a few days earlier to get to know us I believe that really matters to us because how he told our story through his eyes is beyond impressive! We are more than satisfied with him! And if you are still wondering if it’s gonna be worth it- YES 💯!!!! Don’t hesitate, please.
I believe he only takes a few of weddings every year since he really wants to focus and perfect everything. Again, please don’t hesitate!
Thank you so much Kostas!!!! We miss you and hope to see you somewhere in the world! Best of luck with everything!

"We have watched the video yesterday before taking the plane to San Francisco and now that we have the time we just wanted to say THANK YOU! This is so f**ing amazing!! We have cried so much while watching it. It is simply us, and we love it. We would like to keep it forever as it's one of the most beautiful experiences of all times…"
