It is the season when I like my coffee on the side, and write some blog posts looking back to weddings I shot around Turkey.
I totally emphatize with couples who struggles a lot to arrange their distant weddings. Mark & Ana are from USA, and they decided to get married in Istanbul, The small island called Heybeli Ada. Istanbul is one of the favorite cties in the world for wedding and couple photography. Also great place for any photographers for great photos.
Normally I meet couples in advance, have some chat or at least we do some Skype, with Mark and Ana we were not able to. So this wedding was a total mistery to me.
To get to th Island, you first need to catch a ferry. After you get off the ferry, you take a horse cart to get to the Hotel, great experience, because no cars are allowed.
I received a very warm welcome from both families, as if I am not the photographer of the wedding but a valuable guest
I am the kind of wedding photographer that do not keep kicking shutter every single second and annoy couples. I walk around, find spots, follow moments, then Boom!
I also like when friends and relatives help couples to get ready, this time it was Ana’s very close friend. Perfect wedding make up, and very natural looking hair style.
Another point I like about wedding photography is reflections. mirrors, waters, windows, doors even iphone screens…anythng that reflects, can be in my photographs.
Mark was relaxed, fun and cooperating groom during photo sessions and moments.
Since this was a mixed wedding of one side Persian (Iranian) and the other is American; It was a colourful one. Iranians, has great wedding ceremonies. This had been my 3 Iranian wedding, all of them were full of fun and emotions.
OK, Here we go with the Photographs of Mark and Ana during their unforgettable wedding day!
