Hakan & Peren’s Winter Wonderland Mini-Session

This winter I spent some time with my friends in Turkiye. In between life happening – I found out that my good friend Peren has found “the one” and that they were getting married this May. I wanted to give them a pre-wedding gift since I wasn’t going to be there myself – with all the weddings and other work I have here in DFW. The last weekend of January, as we waited patiently, it finally snowed in Ankara and Camlidere (a town 2 hours to Ankara) – where we were planning on spending a night of laughter and raki.

Because we all love to sleep, we took off from the city a little later than we planned – which caused a little delay on our arrival to Camlidere. As soon as we got there I prepped my gear to take off to our mini-session location, which I have never seen before, but Peren’s dad was the local guide who knew every single hidden gem.

As soon as we got to the location – which was on a mountain road – we started our session. But soon after, Peren’s dad told us we had to leave soon before it turned cold and made it harder to go back home.

I also tried something new – and nope, those are not string lights or photoshop overlays 🙂

Until next time, may the love be with you!

    Let's connect!

    The easiest and (most reliable) way to contact me is through my contact form. As I'm always on the go, I'm not always able to answer my phone. Besides, I get a poop ton of spam calls.

    I wouldn't want you to get all mixed up in those! :)
