about us Hello, I am Kostas Petsas founder of the Cinema of Poetry. My passion for cinema, music and poetry has always been my driving force. I am a destination wedding videographer based in Greece, Italy and France. I travel all around Europe and the world to document your story in the most authentic and personalized way. Your wedding film for me is much more than the coverage of the wedding day alone. It is a short documentary portraying your love story and focusing on people, moments and emotions. When you will watch this wedding video after many years it will remind you exactly how it felt on your special day. It will remind you why you two have chosen to be together in the first place.
our approach / working with us My style is a good mix of arthouse cinema and documentary. Let's become friends. I want you to feel relaxed and in-your-zone. The whole process is laid back and follows your plans. I am not simply your wedding filmmaker, I am also your friend. An honest connection between us will help me help you be yourselves. It is always a great satisfaction to hear from past couples and their families that they consider me to be a close friend of theirs and an indispensable part of their wedding story.
why we love weddings Every couple has a story that is worth telling. My motivation to be a wedding filmmaker is to capture this story through the prism of my own vision and personal inspiration. To tell your story as a couple through your wedding and not simply the story of your day. Making an independent viewer connect with your story is very challenging. But it is also what makes each story unique, authentic and true to yourself. Storytelling is something inherent in our human nature. We all crave for stories to connect with.
our travel policy I will travel anywhere in the world to tell your story. For destination weddings I will take care of my own tickets and accommodation so that you can relax and focus on your planning process for the big day. My base is in Greece and I shoot regularly in Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, Spetses or Athens. But I spend half of my time in Italy between Venice, Lake Como, Tuscany, Amalfi Coast and Umbria. I have also worked in the Swiss and Austrian Alps, in Paris, Nice and the French Riviera in France, and in Mallorca and Canary Islands in Spain. I often shoot video for elopements in Iceland, the Isle of Skye, Ireland, in Europe, Dubai, Morocco, Cuba and all around the world.
