I’m a wedding photographer for couples who love the documentary style and real moments. I also love to create creative portraits and romantic images as well. I have been documenting weddings for ten years. I have witnessed more than 600 couples' love stories all around the world so far. I mostly like destination weddings. I love to discover new places and to meet new people and also love to learn about different cultures as well.
I have had an interest in photography since I started to know myself. I have always tried to freeze the moments even in my younger ages. Moments have been matters for me for all my life. I spent years studying Statistics at University, with no idea what I might do with it. It is really shaming that I can’t complete any master degrees which I have attended 3 different master programme. After spending some years in corporate life as a banker than a research and marketing specialist, I found myself a full-time wedding photographer. I have started to shoot with my compact camera at my friend’s weddings in 2005 regardless of knowing that it is going to not also my profession but also my life. I have been shooting weddings since 2009 as a professional. I had the chance to capture weddings in different countries and cultures like Greece, France, Germany, Italy, United States, Czech Republic. Looking forward to new places, beautiful couples, and new adventures.
I used to shoot nearly 50 weddings in a year but now; I am trying to limit the number to 30. I love conferences, workshops, online courses and every article about wedding photography. I have been still attending many workshops and conferences. I had the chance to learn new techniques and approach from the best wedding photographers in the world. Learning is a timeless process for me.

All the pictures speak for themselves. They are the perfect combination of classic, emotional and playful scenes. And at the same time very natural. Going through them makes us re-live our special day and always puts a big smile on our faces. Such a fresh, modern and happy result! Really amazing! We simply couldn’t be happier!
