If you’re reading this, you probably want to know the average Santorini flying dress photoshoot cost and what should a fair price include in terms of deliverables such as number of edited photos, flying dresses choices, and number of scenic spots for the shoot.

The Santorini flying dress was one of the things that most impressed me on this Greek island. The giant red dress and the army of helpers around the photographer turned heads on the Oia to Fira hiking path.

Soon after seeing the first beautiful woman wearing a bright red flowing dress, I noticed another one on the white backdrop of a church, a few flights of stairs lower.

Little did I know that it was such a popular thing to do on Santorini!

Now that I know it, I see dozens of flowing dresses flying around on Instagram and Facebook, girls with happy smiles on their faces, pregnant women proudly showcasing their baby bumps, couples, etc.

As I might want to return to Santorini with my friends in 2024, I put together this Santorini flying dress photosession guide for the purpose of planning every single detail in advance, as well as finding the best flying dresses at affordable prices.

Here’s how to find the best flying dress Santorini price and how to make sure you pick the best flying dress photoshoot Santorini has to offer.

Where To Find a Flying Dresses Photographer in Santorini?

Santorini is probably the busiest Greek island, at least from June to September. I’ve visited it in October and there were still lots of tourists everywhere.

As the number of photographers on Santorini is limited, you’d better book your photoshoot in advance, as soon as you have all other details of your trip sorted out.

The best place to look for Santorini photographers is online. Just read as many Santorini flying dress reviews as you can find, in order to choose the best Santorini dress photo professional for you.

I’ve done my research and I’ve bookmarked the photographers below. Feel free to bookmark and use my list to find your own flying dress photographer in Santorini and make your Instagram go viral.

Some photographers have lower fees, but charge you extra for the flying dress rental. Others include all props in their fees. Some allow you to choose two or even more dresses in different colors.

Before booking your photoshoot, make sure you read some client reviews.

Where Can I Take Flying Dress Pictures in Oia?

Oia is the place to go for taking those famous Santorini sunset photos with windmills and colorful bougainvillea. Since Oia is built on steep terrain, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for breathtaking flying dress photos.

Here are some photos I took in Oia in the beginning of October. There were no flying dress girls around that day. Nonetheless, you’ll understand how the scenery looks and what to expect from a photo shooting in Oia, with or without flowing gowns in sheer silk.

In fact, the coastal path between Fira and Imerovigli is perhaps the best spot for awesome flying dresses photoshoots, as the are lots of whitewashed roofs and infinity pools that overlook the blue sea around the Caldera. Oia is best for sunset photos.

Where Can I Take Flying Dress Pictures in Fira?

Fira and Firostefani (the near village) are best for taking Santorini photos of the iconic blue domes and whitewashed walls.

Once you book your Santorini photographer, you can rest assured they are going to reveal the best photo spots in Fira or Firostefani. After all, they are the ones who live there in Santorini, scout the island and make notes of the best places for such flying dress photo sessions.

Where Can I Take Flying Dress Pictures in Imerovigli?

I believe Imerovigli is the best place to take Instagram worthy photos in Santorini. Located between Fira and Oia, Imerovigli sits opposite the Skaros Rock and it boasts lots of posh hotels and villas with private swimming pools, hot tubs and sundecks looking over the Caldera.

What Should I Wear To a Santorini Photoshoot?

If you don’t have your own flying dress, you can hire one. All Santorini photographers doing this type of shot would also include a dress hire with your package. Just remember to discuss this with them prior to booking your photo session.

Most photographers would only allow you to pick one rental dress. Should you want to change your outfit several times during the photo shoot, you’ll have to agree on this in advance and maybe to bring your own outfits. Remember that it’s your photosession, so things should unfold just as you want them to.
