Hi there,
I just spotted an email I received from you a while back and it has
reminded me that I need to email. You covered our daughters wedding at Suite of the Gods on 19th August. I know she hasn't emailed you so I am going to thank you for doing a brilliant job. She was really thrilled with the photos and we were really impressed with the standard of work and how unintrusive you were whilst busily making sure you didn't miss any shots. A little late but a big thank you

Best wishes

From Chris and Steve (mum and dad)

And Josie and Paul (bride and groom)

Dear Kosta, I never ever got round to writing to you after our wedding and only just found your website and facebook page!
We were absolutely over the moon with our photos and each one brings back so many happy memories of our stay in Santorini.
You really made our experience complete and we had such fun with you!
Myself and James are in awe of your talent and are so pleased with the end result, thank you so much and we hope to bump into you sometime in the future at Heliotopos (we still owe you that beer we promised!).
Lots of love to you and your wife, Claire-Louise & James Roberts

Hi Kosta, Wonderful job on the pictures! Pam and I absolutely love them. Every time we looked at the next picture there would be sounds such as, "Wow", "Ahhhhhhhh", etc. Thanks for the quality work!

Sincerely, Jeff and Pam Edrington (Colorado, USA)

Hi Helen and Kosta, We absolutely LOVE Kosta's photographs. They are wonderful. Brilliant. Beautiful. Stunning.
He is so talented and we thought he was a fantastic wedding photographer! He was a legend!

We have such wonderful memories of our wedding. It exceeded our expectations and was the best day. Thanks to Kosta I had a gorgeous hair style, just as I wanted, and 500 beautiful photographs. I am so glad we found you.

Please could you let me know your address in Santorini as we have a thank you card to send you.

With all the weddings you see and do in Santorini I am sure you have more than enough photos for your website but please feel free to use any of our photos if you wish!

Best wishes Laura and Matthew xxx

Dear Kosta,
Thanks millions for helping to make our wedding day so special.  The hair and make-up was fantastic and the photos are beautiful.

All well here, but we all miss you and the island and had the worst Santorini-withdrawal ever coming home. My entire party is still Facebooking eachother, going on about how they want to go back. I guess, that's how to know we had a great time, right?!

I know you are running to and fro between all the weddings, so I won't take up more of your time. Eternally grateful for your assistance on one of the most beautiful days of my life. All our love to Helen aswell and many thanks!
Thanks again. Victoria and Stuart (United Kingdom)



7th September, 2011

Hello Kosta,  It's been a year since our engagement and 4 weeks since our wedding day. The photos are beatiful! Simply great! Thank you so much! So I prepared a little surprise to Elvio and made a photo video with the Savva photoshoot.

Considering that this photoshoot is a fruit of your work, I really have to show you my homemaking video! Elvio loves it!


Perfect for some tears of joy and nostalgy!

Hoping that you enjoyed as well as we did! And please, if you come to Madeira Island, tell us! :) It's always nice to meet new people in our lives...

Best regards, Cláudia and Élvio ( Madeira Islands, PORTUGAL)



24th September, 2011

Hi Kosta. I just wanted to send you a quick message to thank you and Helen for helping make our wedding day such a special and unforgettable occasion. Kosta's your photos are wonderful and we are both extremely grateful for all of your help and organization during the ceremony and the walk to the reception. Things couldn't have gone more smoothly, and that is all thanks to you. And of course Maria's hair and makeup looked stunning, so thank you Helen too for that!

I hope you both have a great time for the rest of the season there in Santorini, and maybe we'll meet one day in Australia! Or, if you ever happen to be in Copenhangen, shoot me a message and Maria and I will take Helen and you out for a drink!

All the best, Gavin and Maria (Copenhagen, Denmark)



15th July, 2011

Hello Helen & Kosta,

We would like to say Thank You guys for making our wedding so perfect ! Hair and Make was stunning & so were the photographs , everyone has commented how wonderful they are !!

So honestly guys Thank You....

Hope it's nice and sunny in Santorini ... Weather is very glum in Wales !  Kind Regards Becca xx



4th July, 2011

Hi Kosta,

We received the pictures. They look great! Thank you so much for spending four hours diligently on photo shoot and tour guiding us around the island. Remember the cat we ran into on the top of the Mama Mia church? We went to feed him/her the past few days. She/he is such a mellow kitty!

Today is our last day at Santorini, but thanks to your pictures, this beautiful and peaceful island will stay in our memory forever. Hope to see you again next time we are here!

Best regards, Serena & Vincent ( New York, USA )



3rd July, 2011

Dear Helen and Kosta,  Jason and I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you both for helping make our wedding day so perfect. We had the most amazing day, and it was everything we dreamed of and more.

Helen - thank you for putting me at so much ease! It is always hard to put your trust in a complete stranger with your hair and make-up, especially on the most important day of your life, but you were a true professional in every way. I particularly enjoyed reminicing with you on 80's music! And I will find out the name of that book for you.... 

Kosta - what can I say!  You made the photo shoot so much fun and so enjoyable. You completely put me at ease (especially as I hate having my photo taken).  We sat down and looked at the photos last night with a bottle of champagne, and we were so, so pleased with the end results.  They are amazing

Here is a comment I received from one of my friends on facebook: "Nadine, that is one of the most beautiful set of wedding pics I've ever seen. One of the most stunning weddings ever. Congrats. x"  

So once again, thank you both for everything.

Nadine and Jason Albuery!  ( United Kingdom)




12th June, 2011

Hi Kosta, we want to thank you so much for the wonderful pictures you made at our wedding in June. They are really amazing and we are so glad that you spent that unforgetable moment with us!
At the moment Petros is working in Cyprus and I am with our son Pavlos in Germany to visit my family and my friends.
That means that we will not come again this summer to Santorini. 
But we hope that we will drink with you and your wife a glass of wine the next year.
Do you remember that you said to us you never saw before at a wedding such a lot of rice throwing on the couple? They did good work - we are expecting our 2. Baby and I am pregnant in the third month. We are really happy about that.
Take care of you and good luck for wherever you will be.
Polla Filia kai thanks again.

Petra, Petros and Pavlos  (Cyprus)



29th September, 2010

Kalimera Dearest Helen & Kosta, :)

How are you doing guys?  Hope all is well with you both and hope you are enjoying your summer in Santorini; staying cool with this "extreme" heat.  Jim & I wanted to sent you our "Thank you Letter" for EVERYTHING you did for us and for the things we accomplished during Our Special Wedding Day.  So hope you will enjoy reading our letter showing our gratitude to you.  We have missed you and we so wish you all the best on your future successes in your work. :)

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING.  You are absolutely Exceptional People & Great Talents.

With all our love, Your Friends, Penny & Jim Myers (USA)



27th September, 2010

Hi Kosta, How can we thank you enough? ......For once I am lost for words (very rarely does that happen).  
Firstly, our wedding album is faultless. You have an amazing ability to disappear into the background and yet still capture, in such great detail, every moment of our special day. We are so happy with our photographs and cannot express our gratitude enough for your patience, guidance and truly personal service. You captured the spirit of our special day with the contemporary twist we were looking for.The album you created is not the type of album you look at once and put away. We could not have asked for anything more. You are a true professional in every sense of the word. You only get one chance to choose the right person to do the photography on your wedding and without question you were that person.
Thank you so much Maggie & Paul Bray (UK)


26th September, 2010

We renewed our wedding vows for our 20th anniversary at Mystique Hotel in Santorini, Greece. Kosta Savva was our photographer for the ceremony. He has such a great personality and put us both at ease. The pictures he took during our ceremony and around the village of Oia were wonderful. We had such fun with him posing for some very unique pictures including the bell tower at St. George’s church. He has a great eye and every picture was special. Three days after our ceremony, he delivered our album with a selection of pictures. Inside the album was a CD with all of the pictures he took. We loved the pictures and chose three for our Christmas cards this year. We received many positive comments from those who received our cards.

While we did not chose to have hair and makeup professionally done for the ceremony, Helen Savva did hair and makeup for two other brides at Mystique while we were there. Both brides looked absolutely beautiful for their weddings.

Kosta and Helen make a great team and we hope to see them again when we return to Santorini.
Michael and Clusdia Krausnick (USA)



8th August, 2010

Hi Helen/Kosta, we hope you are well and no doubt enjoying the sunshine!  Back in dreary UK now, settling into married life and Santorini feeling like a distant memory haha!

Can we take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you again for all the assistance, patience and help you gave us on our wedding day and our pictures are truly beautiful; we have lost count of the number of comments we have had saying that they look so natural and how the scenery choices compliment the whole day.  I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone we know.

Helen you were a life saver with the dresses and I hope you loved the flowers; a small token for your getting us organised!  We now know how hard it is doing it ourselves when we came back here for our UK reception – I think we were sweating as much as we had been in Greece getting the dresses on haha!

Our kindest regards,  Lee & Lyndsay Knighting  (United Kingdom )



7th August, 2010

Dear helen & Mr. Kosta,how are you?? Hope you both are doing well.

Mr. Kosta, thank you for the photos. We love them all, how beautiful our photos are!!
Our families and friends have been sooooooo impressed when we have shown them our photos and they say that our wedding looks like a perfect dream. How beautiful Santorini is!!

We'll always remember you and treasure the photo album forever. Thank you thank you thank you for being a part of our special day.Lots of love & best wishes,

28th May, 2010

Hi Helen & Kosta, 

I hope you are both well and enjoyed your winter break. Dan & I can't believe that it's nearly a year since we got married and are now planning our 1st Anniversary party.

Firstly we want to thank you both for our superb weddding photo's and the amazing make-up which made the photo's even more fantastic. We still can't believe how wonderful the day turned out to be and how beautiful the whole ceremony was. What's more the the area Kosta took us to to do the private shots was breath taking and we have since blown some of the pictures up and have them displayed around our home.   

I hope you both have another successful summer and I hope we can say in contact.   Kind regards Karen & Dan.xx  



1st May, 2010

Dear Hello Kosta and Helen! Although weeks passed since we married in Santorini - we keep on thinking on the beautiful island, the wonderful time we spent there and of course on you! I hoppe you can excuse me for the delay of this e-mail - I´m quite bussy with the baby now... You probably remember our wedding on the 1st of May - I was in the 8th month pregnant with our baby son.

First of all - thank you so much for the wonderful service you privided us and thank you very much for the beautiful pictures! Everybody loves the pics and everybody is jealous of us;-).

Well, there is another thing I want to tell you since 3 months - at the time we went to Santorini, we still weren´t sure how to call the baby - we had couple of names, but no one was the perfect one. After we met you, my husband had the idea to call the baby Konstantin - inpired by Kosta:-)!
Kontantin Maximilian was born on 21st of June (with 2 weeks delay!) - my husband only says "Kosta" to him, althougt this is unusual for Austria...

We hope you had nice summer, although you probably worked hard! We wish you nice "winter" (=summer;-)...) and are sending you many greetings from Vienna!

Michala + Robert + little Konstantin

PS: I´m sending you a picture of our "Kosta" - 4 hours "old" at that moment  - we just arrived home from the hospital!



6th July, 2010

Dear Helen & Kosta,I just wanted to thank you guys so much. The photos are amazing, and Helen you made me look and feel like a princess. We couldn’t be happier. Everything on the day was magical and you guys were a part of that. Thank you so much.

Enjoy your holidays when the summer is over. If you are ever in Sydney (or the Shire) look us up we would love to take you guys out to dinner.

All the best Simone & Adam (Sydney, Australia)



18th June, 2010

30th May, 2010

Dear Helen & Kosta,
My husband and I would like to say many many thanks to you for giving us such a beautiful wedding and taking many fantastic photos on our wedding day. 
What you did really exceeds what we expected. I remembered that on the wedding day Kosta told me that I was beautiful and I said that it was all Helen's contribution. It was truly from my heart. When I reviewed the photos these days, I can't help remembering both of you.
Best Regards Qin Zhang ( Shanghai - China)

We will always remember our special day with fond memories and it brings a smile to our face to think of the stories you told me during the make-up session. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!

Dear Kosta, hope you and Helen are both well and ready for the break in Hong Kong and Australia.  Ray and myself are doing well apart from busy with the banquet which is happening in December in Hong Kong.
Anyway, thank you so much for your work during our wedding in Santorini!  As mentioned and repeatedly, we LOVE the photos so much.  You both have done an amazing job in making our wedding perfect.  Our Wedding Planner was right, I shouldn't be so stressful prior to the wedding as you are brilliant!  Indeed, I can't ask for anything better than this.  We have shown photos to friends and colleagues and they all applauded.  Everything was just natural and intimate...  What we appreciate the most is, you are not just professional but also PASSIONATE about what you do, which makes us feel more fun and enjoyable during the whole photo shooting session.  Thanks for making our wedding more lively!
We wish you all the best and would love to keep in touch with you... Take care. Love, Maureen & Ray ( Hong Kong )


13th September, 2009 

Hi Kosta,
I wanted to thank you again for the amazing photographs that you took for us while we were in Greece this past September.  We absolutely LOVE the pictures and were even featured on a wedding website for them.  I gave them your website as well so that you could get all of the credit for your unbelievable photography.  The link is below if you want to take a look.

My pictures shake up all of my friends. They say, if have any chance to go to Greece; they want the picture like me.

Hey guys, we made it home safely last Tuesday night. It's taken a while to get everything going again. Just wanted to say thanks for the pics. They look great. We had a blast and will definitely look you up next time we're in Santorini. Thanks again,
Mark W. Honeycutt II  ( Nashville, TN / USA )


9th May, 2009 
Helen and Kosta, we are sadly back in Dallas and though it has been almost a month since our wedding (whoa!), we still can't get over how beautiful our photos are. All of our friends and family say that our wedding looks like a fairy tale and that the photos look like postcards. Sometimes when I go back and look at them I can't believe we were really there. My hair and makeup were perfect and Helen, it was so much fun spending the day with you. I felt like I was with an old friend and I didn't have a second to be nervous or anxious about the wedding later that evening. There is something really nice about spending your wedding day being taken care of by a married couple that is so obviously in love. We can't thank you enough for everything you did for us that day and we certainly won't forget you.
Meredith (and Chris)


20th April, 2009 
Dear Kosta and Helen, thank you so much for making our wedding day pefect! You both made us feel like we were friends. Your knowledge of the island was very useful during our photo shoot! I would recommend your services to anyone!
Thanks Again Jeremy & Gwen Ogle ( United States of America)


20th April, 2009 
Dear Helen, It was nice memory that working with you and enjoying beautiful Santorini, and please tell Kosta I love the photos.
Thank you Lornelia and Michael (Shanghai / China)


20th October, 2008
Carol and I had quite a daunting task of arranging our wedding in Santorini on Oct 2008 for a party of 20. Thank god we had the Savvas Helen and Kosta of Savva International are Australian, and was originally the only reason why Carol decided to hire their services. They turned out to be the best money spent for our entire trip. This is because they exceeded our expectations!!! If anyone is planning a wedding or any special event for Santorini, you will understand when you return home and look at the pictures, the truly breathtaking views and regardless of whether you want Photojournalistic, Portraits, and/or Landscapes - you will get them all. Thank you Helen & Kosta Savva for bringing back Santorini to Canada for us. Feel free to visit our little photoblog http://caroldavid.shutterfly.com
20th August, 2008
Dear Helen & Kosta, Thankyou so very much for helping make our wedding day so perfect…We were a little anxious upon our arrival in Santorini, as we weren’t sure of what to expect as our wedding was organised via emails alone. You quickly reassured our doubts, which made our special day so relaxing. I was extremely happy with my hair & make-up, your attention to detail & professionalism is 1st class. Helen you made me feel so beautiful, Thankyou xxx Kosta you are amazing… We are ecstatic with our beautiful photographs. It’s impossible to pick only 1 as our favourite, there all perfect. Many of our friends cant grasp how beautiful Santorini is and have said It looks like we're in a studio... I'm sure you will continue to thrive on the amazing island Santorini, as you are both wonderful at what you do:) Would love to catch up when you return to Australia. We had an awesome time with you on our last night. Will keep in touch… Take Care of both of you!
Love Always & Forever Simone & Ryan (Newcastle/Australia)

To our new Santorini friends Helen & Kosta, we are now back in the cold and raining United Kingdom but we have our very happy memories of our wedding in Folegandros.We have logged onto your website when we were in Athens airport and we saw our photographs, they look wonderful. We would like to say again 'Thank You'  Helen and Kosta for your help and company too. What we heard about Kosta was right about Kosta's work, his photos look great!! We are looking forward to getting the disc and prints, & one of his 'electronic photo frames'. So once again big hugs and kisses from South London and thanks for a wonderful experience. If you are ever in London and are free please mail us and we would love to meet up with you for a drink and a chat.
Speak to you soon love from Hilary & Andy Ticer   ( South London / United Kingdom )

Thanks again and all the best  Vicky & Peter (Melbourne/ Australia)


20th June, 2008
Dear Helen & Kosta,
Thankyou so much for making me look so special on my wedding day, I can't believe that you could transform me so! You immediately knew how to style my hair to suit me & the make-up was fantastic, even staying put while I cried during the ceremony! Our photos are beautiful, so artistic we both keep looking at them through the TV, they are so natural, we love them. Just wish we could do it all again, it seems like a wonderful dream now.
Take care & thanks so much again Carolyn & Rob Stanton (Manchester / United Kingdom)



19th June, 2008

Kosta, we hope you are well and not working too hard?! We are now home and missing Santorini already, it all feels like a dream now :o(   thankyou sooo much for working so hard on our wedding day, you did a fantastic job with the photos, you were a joy to work with. We would recommend you to anyone. I really hope we will make it back to Santorini next year, & it would be really lovely to meet you and your wife Helen again.
Love from Carole & Rich (United Kingdom)

Ciao Maria & Manny (Miami/ Florida )



10th May, 2008 

Dear Kosta, thank you a million times for making our wedding so special & beautiful. Everything went so smoothly which was a great relief for us given the stress that weddings bring about. Our wedding pictures are amazing which is testament to Kosta's artistic talent. They were unpretentious & so natural which made them very special. We will always treasure them. We wish you all the best for the future.
