Hello! I am Ufuk Sarisen,
I am a documentary wedding photographer who lives in Istanbul and Izmir but can shoot anywhere in the world. I guess that having the flexibility of traveling also stems from the fact that; I am a travel and documentary photographer. 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. Apart from that, I also worked for a while as a photo editor for Skylife magazine. I took photos for many magazines and newspapers. I did editorial shootings for numerous magazines and newspapers. I think these different fields that I came to grips with in past enabled me to look at wedding photography from different angles. In addition to documentary photography, I am trying to transfer other disciplines to wedding photography.
Despite having a bachelor’s and master’s degree in engineering from Istanbul University and Bogazici University, I decided to turn my hobby into a career. I started to work as a documentary photographer. It was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I am still attending in various countries workshops of the best photographers in the world. I convey to wedding photographers the information I have learnt through my workshops. I was the first Turkish photographer which was invited as a speaker to the Fearless Photographers Conference (Aachen, Germany -2019), a conference attended by the world’s best wedding photographers. I have been a jury member in many international wedding photography competitions.

Of course, there are more important things than photography!
You are so Important Every Moment!
“When we ask ourselves what are the most important “moments” of my life, the answer “wedding day” is usually at the top of the list. The fact that a couple trusts me to photograph these moments makes me very excited every time. You are creating images which will perhaps for the coming 50-100 years be inherited by your grandchildren. This responsibility brings along your duty to work hard and to shoot wonderful photos for the couple. You don’t have the luxury of missing a moment whether considered as important or insignificant, because every moment is for sure valuable. For this reason, besides creating the story of that day, I am trying to make portraits that will be a memory for you.”

We are truly grateful to Ufuk and his team for going above and beyond whatever may have been expected of them before, during, and after our wedding. The photos will continue to make us laugh, cry and relive our wedding forever.

Ufuk is a seriously awesome photographer. Friendly, communicative, helpful, and in the end the photos were the most beautiful things we’ve ever seen. We chose our wedding date based on his availability and it was 100% the right decision!
