When we ask ourselves “What is the most important moment in my life”, the answer of “my wedding day” is generally early in the list. The trust of a couple in me to photo these moments always excites me. You create the images to stay with you for the next 50-100 years and maybe the images that will pass to your grandchildren. This responsibility brings along the obligation to work hard at wedding day and after and provide wonderful photos to couple. We don’t have the luxury to miss even one single moment. Every month of the day is very precious whether it is important or not. Therefore I always try to shoot memorable portraits for you as well as trying to compose the story of the day.
Hello! I am a wedding photographer who lives in Istanbul and Izmir but free to go everywhere in the world for photo shooting. This flexibility to travel stems from also being a travel and documentary photographer I think. I have worked in photography committee of travel, geography and culture magazine Atlas which is published in Turkey and Europe for a long time and I have photographed and written my themes. I was also the photography editor of Skylife magazine for a period of time. I have made editorial shootings for numerous magazines and newspapers. I think these fields that I came to grips with in past enabled me to look at wedding photography from different angles. I try to convey the reflex of story-telling and other disciplines to wedding photography.
Memberships and Awards: I am the first wedding photographer accepted from Turkey by Fearless Photographers and being awarded many times. I am a member of Wedding Photojournalist Association and International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. I am also a member of Best of Wedding Photography where only the best photographers in the world are invited. I am one of the award-winning photographers of MyWed.
