These guys are awesome! After exchanging some email, we finally met for their beach engagement photo session in Derin’s aunt home, right on the beach of Yalikavak bay. Collin and Derin coming all the way from New York and planing to get married in Bodrum next year.
James got in touch with me last February, with the idea to do a surprise proposal and an engagement session on a beach 🙂 Isn’t that romantic? Guys taking notes? During those months we kept emailing back and forward regarding flowers and dates. Finally we decided on a date and when they arrived to Turgutreis for their holiday, mother nature wasn’t very friendly. It was supposed to be very windy on the day we planned to do a photo shoot. Especially Turgutreis is veryyy windy. So I checked the weather forecast and the best time to shoot outside was 6am 🙂 That’s what we did, we met early in the morning to spend few hours on a empty beach. To be honest it was the best decisions. I know it’s hard to wake up, but trust me, it is worth it. See it for yourself 🙂
James and Grace were so cute 🙂 We walked from their hotel along the beach towards Turgutreis center with stops to snap an image. I would like to congratulate this sweet couple and I wish them to have a wedding of their dreams!
For last couple of years that I’ve spent in Bodrum I have worked with some awesome people who create beautiful things 🙂 In this post I will share the wedding planners of the Bodrum! These ladies are very creative and will deliver their best in any situation.
Istinai Projeler has organised one the weddings that I’ve shot last year in September. The bride and groom got ready in Avantagard hotel in Yalikavak and the ceremony with the party was in Xuma Beach Club in Yalikavak! So that for the groom and bride and their guests would be easy and fast traveling to the ceremony and back to the hotel after all the fun. This romantic wedding was decorated with lovely details like instant film cameras and wooden candle holders! Of-course the ceremony setting right on the beach is the winner! If the waves were bigger, they could wash all away 🙂 Luckily Bodrum sheltered beaches can provide a perfect beach wedding locations.
Love is in the air!
On a sunny sunday afternoon, we met with this lovely couple for a walk in old town of Antibes. And here is the result of our fun meeting 🙂
