I can’t tell you how amazing it is that people are willing to fly me overseas to photograph their weddings. When Liz first contacted me, I was beyond excited as Istanbul is a city I had always wanted to visit. So much history and culture.

Liz and Herman’s elopement was amazing. We spent most of the day exploring the city and then having the ceremony with Liz’s parents back on the rooftop of the amazing flat they’d rented. Some days are just magical. This one was no exception.





  1. These pictures are incredible! I love how you took them to all different places and had great poses for each environment. Simply, incredible! Great job!

    The post processing complements the the place and also the warm tones gave me the feel that Istanbul is a perfect place for vacation. Never been to Istanbul and I love how the city looks like. How I wish I can shoot on a higher grounds like you. If you don’t mind, what hotel is that?
