Outdoor shots have a special place for newly married couples. After all, all the fuss about the wedding or wedding passes, only memories remain. Of course, wedding photos taken in decent and spacious spaces are the most suitable for a new house's walls, which has been furnished with care.
You do not necessarily have to choose the wedding day for outdoor shooting. Some hold a preliminary shoot for days and do hair and make-up rehearsals, and those who have the opportunity to take a photoshoot to wear the wedding dress for the second time. If you are looking for such a place for Istanbul and its surroundings, here are the ten most preferred locations for wedding photos:
Şile is one of the most common choices of brides and grooms who dream of beach photography at sunset. Drawing a big heart on the sand is like an unwritten rule. If you have a pet to accompany you during the shoot, the scenery becomes even more beautiful. When it comes to the seaside, you may want to smell of romance. But keep in mind that you can also make a fun water fight immortal when shooting after the wedding. Free photo shooting on the beach is another advantage.
Another address for brides and grooms who want to step into a new life in the most natural way is Kilyos. In the concept shoot called "Trash the dress," couples can declare their love by lying on the sand. If you wish, you can stay on the beach until night hours and give stylish poses with LED lights.
Roads closed to traffic, quiet streets and houses full of flowers… With these features, Büyükada manages to be a unique alternative for Istanbulites. The best way to remember your happiest memories in peace is to include the magnificent bougainvillea of Büyükada in the background. If your decision for the shooting is Büyükada, you have to choose a day other than the wedding day, that's for sure. Being wearing a wedding dress or a groom's suit twice should not be considered a great sacrifice. You should consider how much you spend and give the costume accordingly!
Colorful houses in Kuzguncuk district of Istanbul's Üsküdar district await your visit in whites. The historical atmosphere of Kuzguncuk with its mansions, mansions, synagogues, and churches offers exquisite photos. For nostalgic images, you should include Perihan Abla Street in your shooting list.
If Kuzguncuk has only one rival, it may be Balat. Located in Fatih district, this district attracts attention with its colorful houses and narrow streets. Considering that Balat is preferred for many TV series and films, your choice can be regarded as extremely accurate in terms of aesthetics. You can take the colorful doors behind you and include many places from Fener Greek High School to nostalgic cafes.
6. Emirgan Grove
Emirgan Grove is a stylish alternative for those who are in favor of nature and greenery. The area of the grove is so broad that photographers recommend that you have sneakers with you. In the spring season, when tulips surround Istanbul, the woodland's visual richness turns into a full festival.
7. Yildiz Park
Yıldız Park, which makes a smile with its free entrance, is located in the Beşiktaş district of Istanbul. Spring is also the best time for this park, which has an extensive area. While you can bloom in the spring, you can capture magnificent close-up photos of the yellowing leaves in autumn.
8. Fenerbahçe Park
Fenerbahçe Park is one of the most preferred places for those who want to take pictures on the Anatolian Side. Located in the Kadıköy district, the park has a wide area, easy access, and free entrance. Municipal parking areas prevent you from doubling the stress of the wedding day.
9. Ataturk Arboretum
Atatürk Arboretum, one of the places that breathe Istanbul, is a true wonder of nature. There are all shades of yellow, green, and brown here. Entries are paid and subject to appointments, but if you do not want to risk your wedding photos, this may be the right address.
10. Rahmi Koç Museum
Rahmi Koç Museum is one of the sweetest alternatives for wedding shots with its colorful atmosphere. The museum has special packages for couples for special day shoots. Don't you want to take a souvenir photo with Moda Tram on your happiest day? Of course, it is necessary to make an appointment. It would help if you considered that the museum would be busy on weekends. While you are at the museum in Hasköy, you can mingle with the people and include the Hasköy Pier in your background.
