Ah, those kids<3 They were so nice to work with! Fun, happy and playful! (I noticed I use exclamation sign a lot 🙂 Anyway, back to this crazy fun family! Katya wanted to make a surprise photo session for her family. And here is the surprise outcome 🙂
Winter time is a good time to start sharing what I’ve shot in the summer. Because you know in the summer you don’t want to sit in front of the computer writing blog posts, when the sun is shining and sea is calling. And now it’s a perfect time to do that, when it’s cold and raining outside. And when my baby is sleeping, mommy is working, catching up with the blogging 🙂
Going back to boutique hotel in Guluk (30km from Brodum) right on a lovely private beach Med-inn hotel to shoot a wedding this time. It’s always nice to go back to a place you’ve been and feel welcome, see familiar areas, so that on an event day you can turn around quick. Shebna and Stewart was coming all the way from New York to get married in warm and sunny Bodrum. I was always thinking that New Yorker’s are always rushing, but these guys were totally relaxed 🙂 You wouldn’t even think they are getting married 🙂 Shebna even went for a swim just before her make up 🙂 Super chill! Her dress was exceptional, because when you have legs like she does, you would want to show it too 🙂
It was a real pleasure shooting in Med-inn hotel, when you look outside and see just a blue sea and feel the breeze that is promising a beautiful afternoon for an amazing wedding party.
Arrived to Bozburun following my GPS, that was taking me to KariaBel hotel. Ended up parking a car at the end of the road, where I could not see the hotel. So I called them, and they told me they are coming to pick me up with a boat 🙂 Whaaat? How romantic is that? I knew this wedding is going to be different and beautiful. So I picked up all my gear from the car to board a little boat that will take me to the main hotel building. While moving on a boat to the hotel, wind blew my hat away, cause I did not worry for my hat as much as I did for my gear, not to get wet 🙂 luckily the man who drove a boat, did not get lost and went back to pick it up. So far the day was going smooth.
Next stop was bride room. And guess what, I had to take another boat trip to get there 🙂 Finally I met my beautiful bride Kerry. She was getting ready and helping her niece and sister to get their make up done. They had plenty of time to just enjoy each others company before it gets busy. I left the ladies to do the final touch ups and left to look for groom. Michel room was just few rooms away from Kerry. I was told the groom has identical twin 🙂 I was all stressed out, so that I do not mixed them up 🙂 But once the twin brother of the groom showed up, it was sure I would never get them confused. You will see why, in the images below. These guys are super funny, could not stop smiling all day long. You could not feel any wedding stress there.
We could not ask for any better day for such a beautiful wedding!
Thank you for having me and let me document your day!
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.
One sunny Wednesday in Oludeniz, two families gathered to witness this intimate wedding. Donna was smiling non stop 🙂 That made smiling everyone around her. She is one caring and happy person, that is a pleasure to be around. We started getting ready in Evergreen Hotel, as soon as Donna was ready we all went to meet her future husband in Sugar Beach Club, where everyone waited for her to arrive. Dean looked so calm for all of the time during the wedding ceremony and after it.
It has been one happy day! Great weather, beautiful people, good food and superb location for celebrating LOVE!
