Engagement, Save the date and Couple’s Photography & Video Clips Istanbul Turkey


Hello everyone, I just realised I have not posted about Engagement, Save the date and Couple’s shot. Which we’ve been doing all around the year with many couples. Istanbul is a great tourist spot for couple’s, not only for weddings but for honeymoons, proposals, romantic moments…And even some of them were surprise ones. Generally, the female part, is surprised:) Well guys, a little tip; this “helps” a lot, even much more than a luxury dinner, or a boat trip, or an expensive hotel. If you want to be romatic, GO AHEAD also is a good idea to have your “Save The […]

Best Hotels and Venues in Istanbul and Wedding tips for Destination Weddings in Turkey


Hello everyone! It is so interesting to see so many foreigner couples getting married in Turkey in the recent years. Plus many of them are visiting Turkey for their honeymoons. and they all want to be photographed There are many reasons for “why Turkey?”, that I heard from the couples I photographed during their weddings: -One of the very reason is (for mixed couples), like Iranian-Canadian / Azerbaijan & American, Bosnian & American, Indian & English etc. Turkey is geographically in the middle and there is no Visa issue for both sides (easier to travel for guests). -Legislation is told […]

Here we go with Aycan and Danny getting married right by Bosphorus at the House Hotel in Istanbul.

S & S pre-wedding photographs in Polonezkoy, Istanbul


Or should I say, “wedding photos  right in the heart of the Nature” ? Hi all, Before I start, I would like to mention Polonezkoy, as one of the best well preserved parts of the city, founded by Poland immigrants many years ago. Great Nature, unique culture and authentic food! You do not need to get married to visit there GO and enjoy the nature and the food! Wikipedia:  “…Polonezköy or Adampol is a small village at the Asian side of Istanbul, about 30 km (19 mi) away from the historic city center, within the boundaries of the Beykoz district. It was […]

Love during the War in Afghanistan – Sonia & Charles (Wedding House Hotel Bosphorus)


I generally receive requests for wedding having minimum number of guests were 50-60. This time it was only 2, The Bride (Sonia)  and the Groom (Charles)! Here is the story. I always invest on time with couples before photo sessions. When I met them first at The House Hotel Bosphorus in Ortakoy Istanbul, I could see the shine full of excitement in their eyes. They were two American Soldiers, met in Afghanistan and decided to get married in Istanbul. After some little chat, I felt like they were so excited that they could not beleive they are getting married. The […]

Vintage style pre-wedding Photo session in Ortakoy Istanbul Turkey


Ever been to Istanbul? Ever been to Ortakoy?… Ortakoy is one of the most romantic points of Istanbul. Bars, pubs, fancy restaurants, Cafe’s.. (By the way, my favorites are: House Hotel, house Cafe and Kitchenette Ortakoy). Ortakoy is just under the Bosphorus Bridge, which is colorfully lighted-up during the nights. Take your lover, wife, fiance Ortakoy by night, reserve a table at House Cafe by the water, and then after dinner, party at Anjelique or Reina. Anyway, being honest, this was one of my best sessions during my wedding photography life. The day before, the weather was great, however on the […]

Charlie & Caroline Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul – Wedding photographer Turkey


This was my first wedding photography in Four Seasons Sultanahmet, and this year there will be another one. I love this part of the city, I love this hotel and loved the people at the wedding. I am not paid for this, however, this is one of the best spots for your wedding, trust me. Both Charlie and Caroline was easy on their wedding day. They had champagne with friends during preps, funny moments with family members. I clearly remember Caroline’s excitement when she was ready in her dress, and her father arrived at the door for the longest walk […]

Annette & Emre Bozcaada Wedding – Wedding Photographer Turkey


Hello All! Before I start with the wedding story , I need to tell you about one of the hidden islands of Turkey, Bozcaada. Bozcaada, is on the Agean coast of Turkey, famous with the cool beaches, great food, delicious grapes and of course wines. Idea of getting married in Bozcaada, is priceless. First of all, the access to the island is limited, so even during the hottest season, it is not packed like in Bodrum or Antalya. Within a week, you become friends with the people in the Island, because, you probably met them at the breakfast, or by […]

Guldal & Rob – Wedding Photography in Northern Cyprus (Kıbrıs)


Guldal is from Northern Cyprus and Rob is from UK.  They choosed Cyprus as their wedding destination (Cyprus is sunny, always! UK would be too risky, isn’t it?) When Güldal first contacted me saying she is an interior designer, I said to myself “this won’t be an easy one” however it was  lovely one (www.guldalaydinli.com ). First, I must say, every single detail of this wedding designed by her. I told her, she should start earning her life through “wedding details”. Most of the details are from UK, but the delicious food are of Cyprus. Her Mom, runs a beautiful […]
