Cigdem & Kivanc
Gokhan flew to Milan from Istanbul, I flew from Izmir and Soven from London and all planes landed almost at the same time around noon hours. Yes, incredible talent Mr. Soven Amatya came from England to support me as the second shooter. I hope one day I would assist him as the second photographer at one of his own shootings.

We rented a car in Milan and took the road to Como, to our hotel. That day was our free day. We walked around the lake, climbed to the hills with cable car, explored the shooting locations and collected detail images via a drone. By the way, I advise you rent a smallest car possible for parking and driving because parking lots are hard to find and driving here is mind-bending.
We met with Cigdem & Kivanc next day, in the evening and made a wonderful shooting in cable car and on the lake during a boat tour. The most logical solution is climbing to hills and sailing on the lake, if you consider humid and hot weather of Como. The next day was wedding day and preparations began in the beautiful house of the couple in Como in the morning. Then we moved to the wedding venue, Villa Pizzo. After a short couple shooting here, we drove to wedding area.
Villa Pizzo is a building expanded to a pretty wide area on Como shore. Wedding area was on lake and mountain-view garden terrace. Right after that we crossed to cocktail area and made a family shooting there. We have completed our shooting with dinner, entertainment and after party in the villa around midnight. I would say that it was a pleasant shooting for us as both the couple and all guests knew how to have fun and all of them were full of incredible energy.
Como Lake was one of the most exciting places for shooting wedding photos for me. We already began counting days for our next shooting in Como with streets smelling history, magnificent villas and modest people.
Our thanks to dear Cigdem and Kivanc for this wonderful organization and we wish them endless happiness together.
