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.

Ayhan went above and beyond for us. Funny enough, I forgot to tailor my pants for my wedding. Ayhan grabbed an iron and tailored my pants for me. This happened within 30 minutes of meeting him. He had me ready to go just in time for the wedding and basically became my best man in the process… lifesaver. He went on to take incredible photos and all of our guests loved him, including us. He’s kind, professional, funny, great with kids and full of positive energy. It was such a great experience and we are thankful we found him.

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!!

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

If I could leave more than 5 stars, I would! He is very patient, professional and creative in his work and provided me with many high quality photos that were beautifully edited and sent to me the very next day. I would highly recommend Ayhan to anyone looking for an overall fabulous experience and great photos to remember your special day!

Ayhan was absolutely fantastic as our wedding photographer. He was super friendly and easy to work with. He communicated clearly and efficiently throughout and it was important to him that we received the style of photos we were looking for. The pictures turned out beautifully and we couldn’t be happier. Would definitely recommend his services to anyone needing a photographer!

From the beginning Ayhan made himself available and was able to answer any questions we had for our wedding shoot. He took the time to learn what we wanted in the photos. He was also extremely flexible in working with bad weather situations and rescheduling as we were coming in from out of town to do our engagement shoot. We were very impressed the the spectacular quality of the final results from the shoot! Ayhan was also super helpful during the wedding and went above in beyond his duties as a photographer. He not only found the perfect photo opportunities at the venue, but also came to the rescue when there were wardrobe malfunctions for the bridal party. We have since received a sneak peak to our final photo album and are so excited to see everything. We are so glad we got to work with you and so honored you were the one to capture our love story.
