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!

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.

If you have the opportunity for Ufuk take your wedding photos you will leave from the entire experience more than just photos. In our search we looked at the galleries of over 70 photographers for our wedding and Ufuk was our finalist! His style captures life at its best.

Ufuk made our wedding day one of the most incredible and memorable days of our lives. He travelled to Santorini 3 days in advance to scope out all of the locations for photos and even found the remote and private place for us to say our vows.
He was more than full service as he drove us around, providing great Read More conversation along the way. The best part was that his acrobatic photography positions made us laugh the whole time. Anything to get the best shot!
He is a remarkable person and takes so much pride in his work!
His passion was evident even in the reveal of the final product as he wanted to share the moment with us via Skype. He wanted to experience our joy when we finally got to see the photos.
He was able to capture so much emotion from us, which were then able to share with our friends and family that weren’t able to join.
He will truly change your life for the better. I could never imagine a better person to experience you special day with as he added so much joy and happiness to our wedding!

We love you Ufuk and hope to see you again soon!
