Ufuk Sarisen

When we ask ourselves “What is the most important moment in my life”, the answer “my wedding day” is generally early in the list. The trust of a couple in me to photograph these moments always excites me.

I live in Istanbul and Izmir but I am willing to go everywhere in the world for photo shooting. This flexibility to travel stems from also being a travel and documentary photographer.  I try to convey the reflex of storytelling and other disciplines to wedding photography.”

Ufuk Sarisen has worked in the photography committee of the travel, geography and culture magazine Atlas and he was also the photography editor of Skylife magazine for a period of time.

He is the first wedding photographer from Turkey accepted as a member by Fearless Photographers and being awarded many times. He is a member of International Society of Professional Wedding Photographer and Best of Wedding Photography where only the best photographers in the world are invited. He is one of the award-winning photographers of MyWed.
