Destination Wedding Photography | Kalkan, Turkey

Destination Wedding Photography | Kalkan, Turkey

There’s something about destination wedding photography that gives the brain a bit of a spring clean.  It’s the different food, different sights, new surroundings.  Maybe the physical act of flying to the wedding.  Of course the sun and sea part doesn’t hurt either.  Another thing, fundamentally, as a photographer, is the change in the light.  But I’m not going to talk about the quality of light here.  I’ll save that for a separate blog.  I’m just going to talk about the wedding.  There are lots of photos in this blog and they should do most of the talking really. I just want to say how much I enjoyed shooting this wedding, and the company of everyone there, friends, family, crew.  Which helps when the wedding is in Kalkan, Turkey.  Which is a three hour flight and two hour taxi to get there from London.  But maybe what gave this one an extra little pep is that they put me up in an amazing room in the villa.. with its own pool table!  Yes, that’s right my room had it’s own pool table.  Now if you’re a prospective client thinking of booking me for your own destination wedding photography I’m not saying I’m going to try harder if I have my own pool table, because I give everything for each wedding, but at the same time, if there are any rooms going that happen to have fullsize pool tables in them, well, take a look at the photos… ;-)

But anyway Michelle and Andrew had a seriously fun wedding, and here are the photos to prove it.  Check out the dancing at the end of the day.

By the way, for a slightly different set of images of the father of the bride’s reaction to seeing his daughter as a bride take a look at my blog entry here: Father of the Bride Blog

    I really enjoyed this post Nick. Some great timing and observations in these images and I like your use of colour. Interesting point about the “spring clean” – felt that myself on a wedding recently (though mine was Scotland not Turkey…)

    Wonderful photography as always Nick…I’m sure the light would have been challenging at times too, but you would never know.
