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.
I use Skype
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.
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.
