We were looking for the one photographer that could make our memories deathless, but in the most natural way. We wanted a photographer that could capture: 1) natural moments in an artistic way, but without editing the photographs too much 2) fantastic smiles and laughs 3) funny dance moves 4) the joy in our, and our friends and families eyes 5) the touchy feelings in our body language 6) us posing without making us uncomfortable in the situation 7) our story and culture, that is pretty mixed Ufuk, you did ALL of this and BEYOND what we would imagine! You are a warm, humble and trustworthy human being, and a fantastic photographer! We are unbelievably thankful! Thank you for coming to Cyprus! We will NEVER forget it! We see a friend in you now, and we want you to know that you are welcome to Norway any time!
