When you give a girl a ring in Santorini, Greece magic happens! Jacob and Selena rented an amazing Airbnb apartment and from its rooftop terrace they had this breathtaking view over the city Oia. They met early in the morning to start shooting. In the mornings the city is enjoyably quiet, only some fisher boats and straying cats cross your path through the charming alleys of Oia.
It sounds like perfection waiting to happen, and perfection did indeed happen! The beautiful images from Melanie Nedelko Photography speak for themselves and you'll understand why we're drooling over this engagement session and wishing we could be there!

The Perfect Pictorial Engagement Session Location
Words from Melanie Nedelko Photography: For me there's no other location for an engagement shoot that's more beautiful and more unique than Santorini! This wonderful, quaint Greek island with its blue church domes definitely is one of the most gorgeous locations I've ever seen in real life. Pictorial wind mills, cute kittens and the most amazing sunsets await you. So when I got an email from Selena and Jacob from L.A. this April where they told me about how they are going to travel Europe including Santorini for some weeks my heart just skipped a beat.
Celebrate Your Engagement With An Exciting Journey
Shortly before their departure Jacob surprisingly proposed to Selena and it became clear pretty quick that they wanted to have an engagement shooting on Santorini. After traveling through Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro they arrived full of unforgettable impressions on the Greek island to meet me there. I was more than just excited and ever since I met them in person I couldn't wait for this day to come.
Greece is amazing for engagements, and for all you already engaged couples out there it's also the perfect place for a wedding!
Once You Go You Might Never want to Come Back
This engagement shooting was just incredible. Jacob and Selena interacted so lovingly and easily in front of my camera, it was a pleasure taking their pictures. I could have continued photographing them all day long if the sun hadn't become too hot and tourists hadn't spread out into the city. Within an hour Oia awakes and its bustle takes its usual course. I really hope that I may return to Santorini some day. Because if you have been there once, it is all over with you… This island won't let you go again.
