When Rita and Gordon reached out to us for their pre-wedding photoshoot, we knew it was going to be an epic adventure. The couple who live in San Francisco were impressed by our portfolio and our gift for capturing the beauty of Cappadocia’s landscape and iconic balloons in photographs. They wanted to have photos that would capture the beauty of nature and they were willing to hike to an epic location to achieve this.

A Journey to Capturing Love and Adventure
Our journey began with picking the couple up from Carus Cappadocia Hotel where they were dressed in smart casual white outfits. Our first stop was a carpet store in Göreme where we took some stunning photos with my drone. Then we headed to a cave church in Goreme town for some intimate shots. Moving on to the Henna Hotel’s Ottoman Room. The room was a colorful traditional space. And we took advantage of the surroundings to capture some beautiful shots of the couple.
Tuz Golu or Salt Lake
The highlight of the trip was our visit to Tuz Gölü (Salt Lake) for the sunset. The couple, now dressed in pink outfits, took advantage of the white salt lake ground. Moreover the epic sunset in the sky also helped to create some truly stunning images.. They posed, ran, jumped and even danced a ballet routine on the lake. This was definitely our favorite part of the trip.
The next day, we headed to the balloon take off spot for the sunrise photo session. The couple was also able to capture their love in the Love Valley once again. The two day photoshoot was truly an epic adventure and we were honored to be part of it.
In conclusion we were grateful for the opportunity to work with Rita and Gordon. Their love for nature and adventure made our job easier and the results were stunning. I wish the best for them!
