Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Even in my early years, photography has always been a passion in my life, started taking photos of almost everything I find worth to see when I was a teenager.

I got my post graduate degree in photography in 2008 and I've been shooting weddings and elopements for 11 years by now.

I love to capture the love and passion and happiness between the couples and I'm experienced in destination weddings and elopements.

I define myself as a wedding photojournalist when it comes to capturing the day.

I focus on capturing the most natural and special moments of your special day and I do care about bringing the artistic look in every image. If missed, the moment is lost forever. It is my passion, responsibility, and expertise to capture those moments for you to cherish and remember for years to come.

To tell you about myself a little more; I was born in 1982 and I am happily married for 10 years. I am a dreamer, a traveler and my favourite colour is purple!

To get to know more about me and my works, you can simply visit my website and drop me a line. Looking forward to meet you!

Derya, we can't thank you enough for your contribution to our wedding. You and your team truly went above and beyond to ensure you captured every moment. It meant so much that you helped us capture the evening before with all our traditions. At every step of the process you helped us stay calm and natural. You have an amazing combination of professionalism and creativity. You and your team fit naturally into the whole wedding and were flexible enough to go with the flow. The end result was breathtaking. Both the photos and the video were stunning and we couldn't be happier. Thank you for capturing these memories we'll cherish always.
