I believe we, as wedding photographers, have one simple mission; to take the couples back to that special day when they look at their photographs sometime in the future. In that sense, we don't perform our job to provide today's pleasure, but to provide tomorrow's treasure.  
I think this is best achieved, not by just showing how beautiful the couple were on the wedding day, but by showing the feelings and emotions they had on that day.  
With my photographs, I try to make them feel like they are in that moment again. Judging by the kind words I get from my clients after they receive their images, I can tell I am good at that.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I currently live in Istanbul. For weddings outside of Turkey, I have to add travel fees. But I do make an exception for weddings in Toronto, my second home :)

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have photographed my first wedding in 2006, when I was living in Canada.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I am a documentary-style photographer. I like to get to know my couples, try to understand what is important for them. They usually see me as a friend, and almost forget that I am taking photographs for most of the day. This way, I try to capture the real and natural story of them and their day.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My typical package covers the entire wedding day. No time limits.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I use Skype, Facetime, Zoom, etc, to get to know my clients from overseas.

Ask for an offer without delay :) Erkin will be with you every second on your most special day and will immortalize your best moments! It is not necessary to take risks on such days because there is no re-take. Erkin is an artist you can depend on. Thank you so much again for everything :) See you on all special occasions !!!
I researched documentary-style wedding photography, and I came across photographs of Erkin. I liked it a lot, we got on the phone a couple of times, and then face to face. He really wanted to get to know me and my wife and he successfully reflected what he had learned about us in his photographs. In future occasions where photography might be needed, we will work with Erkin again.
ERKIN, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? This is incredible. I am really amazed by the work you did. You have captured the exact moments that I recall the visions of. How can it be possible to capture those exact few seconds, of all the time in the day, where I really felt the happiness. I am amazed by you. Thank God I met you. Really. Thank you.
