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.

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. 🙂

I could tell from the second I looked at Ayhan’s work that his wedding photography was in a league of its own. The moments he captured, and the light he found to frame them, were nothing short of marvelous. Each photo told its own miniature story. So often I see wedding photos that condense the day into a single set of cheesy, clichéd photographs that all seem to have the same theme, but Ayhan’s work is much more thoughtful than that. He managed to show what was unique about us, our family and friends, and our wedding. He even put in extra work at our photo booth, and was great working with guests! We so appreciated having him there and everything he did for us – he truly went above and beyond.

I had the pleasure of hiring Ayhan for my backyard wedding this past weekend. Ayhan showed up early to prep, which I appreciated! Because our wedding was non traditional, I didn’t have much of a plan for photos. Luckily, Ayhan knew exactly what moments to capture! He took amazing candid shots, and helped my family pose for photographs. I knew that I was in good hands with Ayhan. I will definitely be using him for my next

We just received our photos last night, and they are gorgeous! That’s the first point! It was such a quick turn around! We were honored to have Ayhan as part of our day. You can tell he has a lot of passion for his work. Even others were telling us that you could see he wasn’t just “taking photos” but capturing memories we will remember forever. Especially all of the laughs! The photos speak for themselves. Throughout the whole process, Ayhan was responsive, professional, and talented. Especially when I asked 101 questions! He was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely work together in the future! Thank you Ayhan!

Hiring Ayhan was the best decision!! He did an amazing job with both engagements and wedding photos. He’s an incredible photographer who is truly passionate about what he does. He takes his time and knows exactly what he wants and how he wants it done. We made a small album of a few wedding photos we wanted done and he helped us recreate them ! We hope to use his services again sometime in the future and will always recommend him for anyone who is looking for a photographer. Thank you again, all of our photos were absolutely stunning! ❤️

Ayhan was awesome. I couldn’t say enough pleasant things about him . He was professional and kind. We just got our pictures and we loved them. And let me say my husband is very picky and he loved the pictures and he also liked working with Ayhan. I highly recommend him.
