casa lavanda wedding

it was one of the most emotional, fun and tiring wedding of the season. it was very emotional cause it involved so much real love; it was so fun cause it involved real shared joy; and it was tiring cause we were all in the move, dancing running around, enjoying every bit of the day starting from midday til past midnite.. itir&tolga are one of the most sincere and lovely couple i have ever to capture. their energy and love for each other and for their friends and family took as all in too! living in dubai, they managed to gather all the loved ones on a hot july istanbul day. in the northeast of istanbul, a region called sile, hosts beautiful casa lavanda hotel within in a mighty nature. aisha wedding of istanbul also did a great job on the theme of the wedding to fit the whole concept to the nature of beautiful sile. my lovely dugme film did the videography where you can watch it from below! enjoy the serenity of this lovely wedding <3

mom to be <3 - maternity session in beautiful autumn

i really could not be happier for this lovely soon to be parents couple! when alev (pinar's extremely good friend) contacted me that she wants me to shoot their maternity and baby sessions as a gift from her, i thought; they are such a lucky couple to have such a kind friend! and i knew that this session was gonna be special from the very beginning! and when i first met with pinar and ahmet, i was captured by their energy as a couple and their excitement to be come parents was unbelievably cute! it was a bit cloudy istanbul day and we traveled to beautiful casa lavanda hotel and the clouds allowed us to have our session in a most beautiful way. pinar, as being a gorgeous mom to be was a natural beauty.. and we spend this beautiful autumn day capturing her charm and their joy of soon to welcoming their baby boy.. and i am in love with this session! hope you all like it too!

oh.. yea and their baby boy ayaz joined them 6 weeks after this shot and that session is soon to be on too.. <3

beautiful autumn..

i have always loved autumn.. how nature brings out it's bright colors out, how it is somehow peaceful. even the rain has it's way of calm you down. it is somehow melancholic and tranquil at the same time. wind blows, rain falls, sun shines, leaves falls.. you just want to be still. enjoy the silence of the nature, you will empty your head and just be still.. at least just for a moment.. because you will feel the fall in you..

photos were taken at casa lavanda hotel, istanbul - stalu hotel, yesilyurt - and urza, istanbul during my maternity and wedding sessions in this september..
