"We first met Magdalene in 2010 where she was the photographer for a family wedding and after we saw her stunning work we knew we had to hire her when we got engaged. Magdalene’s photographs are dynamic, beautiful, and meaningful. She really captured the feeling of our wedding day. Beyond her amazing work, Magdalene is an absolute pleasure to work with. We planned our wedding from Canada, and it meant so much to be able to rely on quick, professional responses from Magdalene whenever we needed to touch base with her about something. We would highly recommend Magdalene and her team to anyone who was planning a special event and required professional and creative photography. Magdalene was an absolute dream to work with! From the beginning we were asked what we wanted and how we wanted our photos to look. She understood us! She took on our suggestions with such enthusiasm and took a genuine heartfelt interest in our family friends and wedding and felt we had another dear friend sharing our big day! Magdalene went beyond what a photographer is expected to do. We can’t thank you enough! Our photographs were even ready in super fast time so we could show them at our party at home!"

Erin & Nikos, from Canada to Pylos

"My husband and I really wanted wedding pictures that captured ‘us’ and were more natural than a lot of the photographic styles we had seen. We came across Magdalene Kourti Photography searching online and were instantly excited by her beautiful, artistic style and it was just what we had been looking for. We were slightly apprehensive about booking someone overseas, but we needn’t have been. From our initial enquiry Magdalene completely put us at ease. She responded to our questions so quickly and gave us some great options we had not considered… nothing was too much trouble and we felt as though we were the only people she was dealing with. She really made us and our wedding feel so special. On our wedding day she really put us at ease – her style is contemporary and edgy and she is such a beautiful, positive, artistic person it’s no surprise her photography is the same Our photographs are beautiful and they really capture us. Everyone who has seen them says, “wow, they’re so you”. Magdalene has a unique gift and she was able to capture our special day perfectly. Thank you for taking our wedding photographs and giving us the most beautiful pictures that completely tell the story of our day… nothing staged, nothing posed, just breathtaking beautiful pictures that capture us completely. I can’t wait to come back for an anniversary and have some more done."

Sarah & Chris 

"I would like to thank Magdalene for the amazingly beautiful pictures and video that  shot of our wedding. Captured the intimacy and joy of the day and told a story of the day in a way that was natural and did not in any way appear posed or staged. The comments that we have had from friends and family just serve to confirm how wonderful the result is. I would definitely work with again and would recommend to anyone."

"It is one thing to have 'formal' photos of your wedding day and another to have images that capture the essence of moments! Magdelene observed and recorded our story as it unfolded, each image filled with emotion, truth and realism.  Magdelene has a distinct artistic vision towards wedding photography, she  strives not for a flawless shot, but to perfectly capture the actual emotion and atmosphere of the scene.  Having a destination wedding often means having to celebrate without the presence of all your loved ones, we go home knowing that through our photos we can relive our special day with them, moment by moment.  Thank you for authentically and candidly capturing our love"

Adriana & Anastasios, Greek Australian wedding at Kos.

"Direkt när vi hittade Magdalenes hemsida kände vi att detta var fotografen som skulle ta kort på oss dagen då vi skulle gifta oss på Rhodos. Bilderna var ju så fina! Fotona hon tog på oss och vår son är vackra, naturliga bilder som verkligen visar “oss”. Magdalene är helt enkelt en konstnär som lyckas skapa magiskt fina bilder. Vi är så glada att vi hitta denna fotograf, som dessutom är hur trevlig och hjälpsam som helst, och kan verkligen rekommendera henne till andra som letar efter en duktig fotograf. Det är världsklass på Magdalene!"

Johan, Maria and William, From Sweden to Rhodes – Swedish wedding

"With a destination as beautiful as Rhodes and a wedding party of 100 guests to celebrate with us we knew we had to capture the memories of a life time. An Indian wedding is filled with so much colour and rituals that we needed someone who truly understood the ceremony. Someone who could capture the mix of emotions that everyone goes through during an Indian wedding. But furthermore we wanted someone who understood the Rhodes landscape so they can easily capture every moment on a stunning backdrop. We were recommended Magdalene by our caterers Saffron. From initial conversation we knew Magdalene was the one for us. She had just done another Indian Wedding in Rhodes and her gallery showed us a range of emotions she captures. We had never come across anyone who replied almost instantaneously to our emails – her customer service is second to none. We booked her for both our Indian wedding ceremony and our Civil ceremony. As a person she is so calm and professional and gives off an auro of an artist. Her style of photography is unique in that you won’t know she is there yet she has captured moments that perfectly bring out emotion through every ritual. Each picture tells a story and brings the wedding to life. It was very important to us that she not only captured us but our guests too and she did that with such character. She had our wedding photos ready to send to us within days of the wedding which we would have thought is unheard of. And now we are proud to share these with our loved ones. We both want to thank Magdalene and highly recommend her work for anyone looking to get married in Rhodes, whether Indian or otherwise."

"Magdalene captured our day in a way that we could never imagine, the pictures blew us away with how beautiful and natural they were. Everytime we look at them we see something new, the details are important. Very professional and wonderful to have around. Beautiful memories forever."

Kathryn & Alex, UK wedding at Peloponnese,  Pylos

"I immediately loved the aesthetic of Magdalene’s  when I came across their beautiful photographs for the first time. It was that kind of natural and dreamy air about them that made us choose  for our wedding on the picturesque island of Hydra. It has been a pleasure to work with, we have had a really nice interaction from the moment we first talked and even though we live in England and only got to meet Magda in person at the wedding, the distance was never a problem and communication was made very easy. What is truly extraordinary is that captures special moments without you knowing that. It felt effortless and relaxed to work with and the result is stunning. We are very happy with the photographs – they really capture the emotions of the day. A lot of them are highly artistic, resembling a painting that you could hang up and admire. We were also amazed by how quickly we got the photographs back (one week after the wedding!) which is lovely if you want to beat the wedding blues"

"För 2 år sen sökte vi en fotograf som skulle ta våra bröllopsbilder på Rhodos aug 2012 och då hittade jag Magdalene Kourti. Vi anlitade henne och under en timmes tid tog hon bilder under bröllopscermonin i Monte Smith kyrka, på hällen med Rhodos stad i bakgrunden och nere på stranden. Vi fick magiska bröllopsbilder som Magdalene tog på oss. Så nöjda vi var med bilderna på en dag som vi aldrig kommer att glömma. Vi beställde en resa till Rhodos aug 2014 igen och eftersom vi hade fått tillökning så ville vi ta familjebilder på oss. Valet var solklart och jag kontaktade Magdalene som mer än gärna ville ta bilderna på oss igen. Hon kom ut till vårt hotell Sunwing Kallithea Beach där hon tog bilder på oss i tidiga kvälls solen på flera ställen på hotellområdet. Vårt charmtroll älskar att bli fotograferad och blev en härlig fotografering. Vi väntade med spänning på att få se bilderna och vilka underbara bilder igen Magdalene tog. Älskar hennes sätt att ta bilder samt att man får dom både i färg och svartvitt!! Så mycket beröm vi har fått för både bröllops och familjebilderna som Magdalene tagit har ingen annan fotograf lyckats med. Vi kan verkligen rekommendera Magdalene Kourti som en super bra fotograf som tar magiska bilder med både kärlek,  värme och känsla."

Familjen Hidfors Sverige

"Jeg er evig takknemlig for at vi møtte denne herlige damen. Hun er en fantastisk person, hele hun er så nydelig så stemningen på bildene kommer av seg selv for hun bare er til stede. Vi kunne ikke blitt mer fornøyd med bildene hun tok av oss som brudepar og av barna, samt hele familien. Hun kjørte rundt med oss for å finne perfekte steder å ta bilde på og jeg fikk over hundre bilder bare på noen dager. Veldig god service og jeg vil varmt anbefalle en meget behagelig og dyktig fotograf."

"The first time I saw Magdalene’s website I fell in love.  The way that she captures the emotion of a moment is amazing.  I knew that I had to have her capture our wedding!  We first met in Chania the day before our wedding and walked through the timeline of our day.  I felt so comfortable around her instantly and knew she would capture my special day perfectly.  Magdalene is the sweetest most down to earth person I have met.  Fits right in with our wild and crazy guests and we felt like we had known her for a lifetime.  Our proofs were available in less than a week and we were able to relive all the moments from our wedding again.  The pictures came out flawless and we are more than happy with them.  Beautiful photography and fantastic down to earth people.  We LOVE how our day turned out."

Karla & Dave, Chania wedding

"We really want to thank Magdalene for our beautiful pictures! They are so much better than we ever could dream about. Do we really look that good :)!?
We wanted relaxed and lively pictures full of life and joy in a beautiful environment. Magdalene guided us in a warm, friendly and professional way to make us feel comfortable and to find the perfect places. We and our children thought that it was a great photo session and we want to thank Magdalene for making our wedding memories to last forever. Our hotel planner in Rhodes recommended Magdalene and we are happy that we followed her choice!"

"Je remercie Magdalene pour sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse à travers nos échanges de mail, très professionnelle sur terrain elle a réussi à nous transmettre un souvenir inoubliable de notre mariage, les photos sont magnifiques et correspondent tout à fait à ma demande.
Encore merci Magdalene"

"Мы с моим мужем решили сыграть свадьбу на замечательном греческом острове. Долго готовились и конечно же выбирали фотографа, который должен был лететь в Грецию из России. Однако так случилось, что за день до свадьбы, я узнала о том, что фотограф не может приехать на Родос. Руки мои опустились и я даже не надеялась, на то что смогу найти хорошего, и самое главное – свободного фотографа меньше чем за сутки на незнакомом мне острове. И тут, организатор свадьбы показывает мне сайт с чудесными фотографиями, а потом говорит, что и сам фотограф свободен. И уже через пару часов к нам приезжает волшебная Магдалена, которая сразу мне понравилась. Огромное спасибо, Магдалена! Ты настоящий профессионал! И очень хороший человек, что немаловажно. Общаться и работать было очень легко с первых минут! Ну а фотографии получились просто потрясающие. Когда я увидела их в первый раз, я словно заново прожила этот день, настолько они были живые. Магдалена сумела на фото передать атмосферу самого важного дня в нашей жизни. Магдалена, у тебя огромный талант, мы желаем тебе всего самого хорошего и дальнейших успехов в работе! Александра Осетрова."

Ilia and Sasha

"Magdalene, at my first sight of your website, I was really impressed! Your picture has the soul, delivering exactly the feeling and emotion of the bride and groom. Then my wife and I were very lucky to have you to be our wedding photographer. You spent the whole day with us in Santorini for shooting. We had fun! When looking at finished pictures, my wife and I were right off pleasantly surprised with use of textures…old walls, wonderful colors represented by blue churches.. contrast of red mountain and ocean! One must have an eye to discover such things and use these! Magdalene, you made it! In addition, I love the way of extensive use of contrasts to underline particular detail! It is really powerful!! For instance, one picture that I sat in a long chair tying my shoe laces, while my wife was making up!! Such an ordinary scenario, you used w/b contracts to deliver an kind of classic moment before wedding!! So cool!! Anyway, Magdalene really you have the skill, eye, imagination,and the talent to deliver great shots!!!!"

Long & Maggie

"Thank you very much again Magdalene for making our day so beautiful. The memories from that day will always be with us in our hearts and also in the perfect photo album that you made for us! You captured the moments so good. You were so helpful with everything. We will definitely recommend you to everyone who needs a very competent photographer on their most important day of their life. A photographer who is also very kind and helpful! Our best to you and your family!"

Joakim & Anette

"We’ve just viewed all the photos – they are the most beautiful and stunning shots! Thank you so much for capturing the day so intimately. The photos are everything we hoped for and more. Everyone including us are totally blown away by how stunning they are. You are a very talented lady!"

Charlotte and Dean

"The pictures are fantastic!! You have such a great eye. I can’t believe you captured some of the moments that you did. I absolutely LOVE all the photos. Thanks again for capturing that special day for us. You’re awesome Magdalene!!"

Josephin-Pramond

"Magdalena hat unsere Hochzeit nicht nur in wunderschöner Weise mit ihren Fotos eingefangen, sondern hat sich auch noch wie ein Gast angefühlt, den ich schon seit ewig kenne. Sie hat sich sehr liebenswert und gleichzeitig zurückhaltend in die Hochzeitsgesellschaft eingefügt und war dadurch ganz nah an den emotionalsten Momenten dran. Ich hätte mir keine bessere Fotografin wünschen können. Für diesen besonderen Moment war Magdalena die perfekte Wahl."

Sofie - Eric

"Magdalene has an eye for composition in her photography; her photos capture more than the moment, they become a piece of art. She was everything that we could have ever wanted in a photographer for our wedding in Hydra- she was poised, discreet, helpful, and she is also a wonderful person. She captured every little moment: the best looks, the best dancing, the best smiles, and all in a unique way. I wish I could better express how happy we are with her but words can't do her justice- she was simply spectacular."

Anastasia & Mike
