Wedding Photographer

With over 18 years of work experience, I have actively participated in national and international official events for a decade. My photos have gained international recognition, being featured in numerous publications and newspapers, and I’ve been honored with various awards.

My background lies in photojournalism, and I’m passionate about capturing every significant moment to let my pictures tell a compelling story.

What is Photojournalistic wedding photography?

Photojournalistic wedding photography differs from staged shots with precise lighting or photographer instructions. This approach prioritizes capturing genuine moments as they unfold throughout the day. Consequently, some photographs may not be flawlessly staged. For instance, I might capture everyone having a great time on the dance floor or a guest shedding tears during the speeches at the reception. The term originates from how photojournalists cover regular news stories: relying on natural situations rather than staging them. To capture the day’s most candid flow, I adopt a fly-on-the-wall style.

Hiring Ayhan to take our engagement and wedding photos was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. As a couple that’s never taken professional photos before, we were super nervous but it was super helpful having the engagement session to get to know one another. Ayhan did a great job of guiding us and giving us feedback to get all of our pictures perfect! We really love both sets of photos and I know we’ll spend the rest of our lives looking back at them to remember such a special moment in time.

The best! My husband and I made the right choice by hiring Ayhan for our big day. He is very polite and extremely patient. All our pictures turned out to be much more spectacular than we might had expected. He is the amongst the best photographers we have ever came across both in terms of professionalism and quality. Highly recommend him! Thank you very much Ayhan. He truly is a gem of person! Thank you again. 🙂

We loved working with Ayhan! I would recommend him for anyone looking for a wedding photographer. He did our engagement and wedding photos, and we love them! He took so many wonderful photos it was hard to choose which ones we wanted to frame. Ayhan was incredibly responsive and available to answer any questions that I had. He also provided so many great recommendations for locations taking our engagement photos. On our wedding day he spent the whole day with us and took photos of every moment throughout the day. Thank you, Ayhan!!

Ayhan is an amazing photographer! He is extremely talented and his work is amazing. We had a great experience working with him at our photo shoot at Duke University he knew exactly where to go at which time so the sunlight hit us perfectly. We had a two hour session, first hour was a graduation shoot and the second was an engagement shoot. I highly recommend him and his work. Thank you Ayhan!

Wow!! Just wow. His work blew our mind. Ayhan was absolutely amazing and extremely professional! We hired Ayhan for our Courthouse wedding and we and our guests just loved him. He was very nice and had great ideas of how to pose etc. He was very patient with everything and we never felt rushed or anything. He took us afterwards to a park close by and continued with the shoot. We received all of our pictures exactly two days later. They turned out AMAZING and my husband and I will surely work with Ayhan in future!!! We actually already plan to take newly wed pictures and also hire him for our reception party in march.

Thank you so much Ayhan!!! See you soon… 🙂

Best experience ever. Being pregnant and having a rescheduled twice reception with multicultural families Ayhan was perfect! He was so helpful and patient and managed to get every picture we wanted and didn’t even know! We were so pleased we had asked him during the event to stay later & he was happy to. lucky for us we have a lot of picture worthy events coming up & will def. be contacting faceinlens again!!
