purple and blue my love is forever for you..

it was a beautiful june day and tugçe and gökçe got married with such a great celebration in istanbul! 

it was a blue purple neatly arranged wedding at hekim basi yalisi, one of my favorite venues in istanbul to get marry! as a talented and creative bride, tugçe designed their invitations and did the guest give aways by her self. which in my opinion added an extra dose of sincerity to their wedding. getting ready in beautiful sumahan hotel, travel to the venue by boat on the bosphorus was magical. honestly, tugçe's hair and make up has been one of my favorites of this past year's weddings. her hair was done by talented zamir kabak and her make up was by yasin sefik. they are both mostly in fashion but they are really great artists! zamir even created a different hair style with a spare veil for tugçe and we got to photograph her in with her special zeynep erdogan design dress. we had a great time both during getting ready and before the ceremony for the couple shot. i cannot say enough for the staff of the hekim basi yalisi and how they do great job on each wedding! and the food that is served. everything was sincere and neat and very beautiful! you can relive those moments with the video of lovely dugme film at the end of the post as usual! we later even had the chance to do an after wedding session at beautiful alaçatı, çesme, which is my favorite among my sessions. tugçe's natural beauty and their energy as a couple made that session even better than ever. the californian like golden light, beautiful beach, colorful streets of alaçatı.. everything was magical.. 

dear tugçe and gökçe, thank you so very much for choosing to work with me! it was really an honor to be a part of your special day! you guys are incredibly great together and i am so so happy to get to meet you! i hope to meet in the future projects too! 

hope you all like it! don't forget to leave <3's in the end ;)

the yellow wedding <3

such a special wedding it was with special people! i have been in same weddings with eren and selim twice last year and this year it was their turn. and when i received the email from eren i knew that the wedding was gonna be great! first of all she was wearing a yellow wedding gown! how amazing is that? her energy in life was reflected in every bit of this wedding! started as a cloudy day at the bosphorus, soon the clouds were gone and sun was shining bright along with the beautiful yellow bride.. 

both their families and friends were there all the time helping for the preparations; which made it even more sincere. both eren and selim's mon worked hard during the day for the preparations and i believe they deserve a big applause for the hard work they put in. kanukte flower did great on both the bouquet and the flowers too.. one of the great piece was their invitation. which eren designed her self. little yellow evil eye was really a nice touch!

people all over the world were at beautiful sumahan otel to celebrate their special day. eren and selim's close friend alek took the responsibility to marry them in front of the loved ones and he gave a great speech saying "may your love modern enough to survive the times, and old fashioned enough to last forever."

you could tell how in love they are from their first look..seeing each other for the first time that day made them all teary and it was such a touchy moment even for me!

dear eren and selim, i am so glad and honored to be a part of your amazing wedding! i hope you will cherish each and every single day in old fashioned way that your love will last forever! hoping to be a witness of more great days of yours! enjoy every bit of this day over and over again! 


love by the bosphorus

it was a very lovely may day.. not too hot not too cold perfect weather! conditions were just great so was the wedding! ayça and utku are just a great couple that i am so utterly glad that i met them. funny story, ayça's cousin tugba was one of my first brides when i started working as a wedding photographer almost 4 years ago. we found out that later we agree upon working together.. now i am shooting her wedding. and i am so glad i did. their energy and elegance and the effort that they put in their wedding was a reflection of their personalities and love towards each other for sure. the selection of the great venue, hekim bası salih efendi yalısı, has made the wedding cosy and gorgeous at the same time. all the details of the wedding was their creation. and i believe they deserve a big credit for their brilliant job! from the decorations, to food, from the music to the bouquet, everything was flawless.. and when i saw their invitation was from beyond talented y65 by selen özakhun, i knew that it will be the right choice to reflect the theme of their wedding.  ayça you have become a gorgeous bride and utku you are very lucky to have her as your bride! you guys warm my heart! i wish you two a life time happiness and love!
