I’ve been really excited to post these photos because Nurcan is one of my favorite people to photograph. I felt so honored that she and her new husband, Ayhan, invited me to be a part of their wedding day. My friends spoil me by giving me a VIP pass to the most important days of their lives and I do everything in my power to keep it together for the sake of the photos.
Nurcan and Ayhan had a city wedding on a cloudy Thursday in downtown Manhattan. Of course, Nurcan brought her usual stylish flare (with a dress she ordered from China!) and Ayhan was the perfect compliment.
These columns were so monumental. If time allowed, I would have spent much longer shooting in this gorgeous setting.
I swear these shoes were at least six inches tall. Just looking at them almost made me lose my balance!
Nurcan and Ayhan invited me to dinner after the ceremony and photos. A friend of theirs told the most adorable story: when Nurcan met Ayhan, she was wearing a ring…apparently it was laughable. Everyone was trying on the ring and when Ayhan tried it on, it broke. He promised he would buy her another ring. He kept his word. People, I can’t make this stuff up.
Just before dinner, a horse and buggy showed up and the couple had a few moments to themselves on a ride through the city, but not before a few more photos.
Once the sun had set, we all headed to Times Square for one last photo shoot. The girls had a blast covering Nurcan in glitter and she didn’t object.
Nurcan and Ayhan, thank you for being such a fun couple to photograph and agreeing to all the poses I had you two do. I hope you guys are having a blast in Turkey!
