My professional wedding photography service can capture your memories, from your preparation till the big event. Of course you want to picture your most beautiful day of your life. So many things happen that it is impossible to experience everything. Photojournalism will capture these moments. Through these pictures you can re-live these moments again. At the end of the wedding day you will get your amazing story via the photos. I also shoot professional portraits in photojournalistic style, indoor or outdoor.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Photojournalistic, artistic, creative, unique. I am a candid shot lover, focus on the moment that happening on the wedding day. All my shooting are candid without posing except portrait session. I focus on the real story happening on the big day and unfold the moments by all the photos supporting to each other. I really shoot a wedding, not only taking photos on a wedding. I basically keep shooting from the beginning to the end.

Me and My Husband got married at Help Beach, Fethiye in September 2018, both being creative and having a lot of friends who are photographers we had very high expectations. Having spoke to Ufuk and viewing his work we definitely knew that we wanted him as our photographer for our wedding. He was efficiant throughout the whole process. On our wedding day Ufuk done an pre wedding photoshoot with us in the morning and made me us feel very comfortable from the start, he was happy to go with an ideas that we had as well initiating ideas himself. During our actual wedding Ufuk was constantly taking Read More photos capturing all the different things that was going on, we now have our wedding photos back and our incredibly happy with the images, they are definitely helping us relive our wedding day! Thanks you so much Ufuk!

We first met with Ufuk at the wedding of Birsen and Rainer in Baden Baden, Germany in 2016. He was so close and warm. It was a feeling like we know each other since years. We kept in touch after Baden Baden. We didn’t know at that time that we would marry each other but we knew if we would marry one day Ufuk will be our wedding photographer. When we decided to marry, we contacted him directly and he said yes and made us very happy. That was the best decision ever.

December 2017, when we choosed our wedding destination Turkey we visited Ufuk and his family and had a great time with them. He Read More and his wife were a great support while we planned our wedding in Cesme. We checked some venues and decided to marry at a beach club. We decided to make holiday, wedding and honeymoon in Cesme with our relatives. So about 120 people from Europe came and make holiday with us and that was the most wonderful part of our wedding. As Ufuk write in his notes we got married while we were on holiday with our lovely family and friends.

How would we describe Ufuk?
Ufuk is a wonderful person with a positive energy. He is calm and have a solution for every problem. While he is taking picture, he is giving you a great feeling like you are the most important person on earth. He is so smooth that you can’t see him at your wedding but he is everywhere. Everybody can get in touch with Ufuk and he treat everyone with love and respect. He is seeing things you can’t see. He is catching every emotional moment at your wedding what you can’t see at that time. He is not just a photographer he is a good soul with a big heart. All of our guests got a good vibe from him. We are grateful to had him with us while our wedding day. Thanks a lot. Wish you and your family the best and a healthy long life. We keep in touch. We are looking forward to meet you again as soon as possible.

Ufuk was the best photographer we could have hoped for. After looking through many lacklustre wedding photographer portfolios, his portfolio was the clear winner, and our photos were every bit as beautiful as the ones that first made us fall in love with his work.

What really attracted us to them was how they didn’t look staged or contrived. Since we are not models, this was important to us. We really wanted beautiful photos of us being happy and having an experience, not trying to play a photographic role.

As for our actual wedding:

He communicated well with us, and sent us a nice Read More list of wedding advice before the wedding, which was helpful.
He was on time and cheerful!
The second and third shooters he chose were pleasant and took great photos, too.
We were a bit disorganized and he went with the flow.
He made us look 1000% more beautiful than we are in real life! (He may try to deny this, but really shouldn’t because it’s true and also his ability to do this is 100% why you should hire him.)
My Mom thought he was really nice.

Our only wish we had had a little more time to spend talking to him. It would have been nice to chat more on a more relaxed day.
