If my family had to describe me in five words they’d be:
wanderlust // loving // laughter // dedicated // creative
…and most importantly I ALWAYS FOLLOW MY HEART.
Hi there! I’m Meltem. A traveling wedding & portrait photographer currently based in Zurich who lives for adventure and foreign worlds. But don’t get me wrong – I also love evenings on the couch, cuddling with my pets and ordering sushi.
Photography has been my second language since I’ve been little. It gives me the opportunity to save moments for eternity. Every day I put my heart & soul into everything I capture. I treat my clients as my friends which allows me to develop a level of trust & emotional connection.
I’m fascinated by life & want to photograph people who feel the same.



People say I’m restless.  Some others say I travel to escape life, but for me traveling is for life not to escape me. Every time I come back home from a  journey, my mind is full of joy, creativity  & new ideas about where to go next. If you’re planning a DESTINATION WEDDING, an ELOPEMENT abroad, or if you’re just around at the same time feel free to contact me for a session- free of travel expenses. I love being on the road, learning along the way, and meeting new people.

Meltem made our elopement dreams come true! When we first started talking to Meltem we knew that she was the perfect photographer for us. She was up for an adventure and was very easy going right from the start. She helped us plan our location and even switched her days around for us when the weather didn't cooperate. Her eye, personality, and ability to capture the moment was remarkable. We've had many people tell us that our photos look like they came from a magazine. If you're looking for a photographer that is willing to travel, enjoy nature, and even have a beer with you then look no further! Thank you so much Meltem for creating pictures that we will cherish forever.

This day was a fairy tale! Everything went so smoothly and we had all of those important to use in attendance and Meltem captured it all so well. She had a positivity about her that made us comfortable and excited about taking our photos and set the tone for the entire day. The detail and focus she put into each shot was impressive and also left us with an amazing video of our perfect day.. Meltem's sense of adventure and outside-the-box thinking created some of our most favorite memories from our big day!
She spent the entire day with us and took time to get to know us and share a little bit about herself. She takes her work very seriously, but has fun with it all! We didn't want a videographer that was just there to film and capture, we wanted them to be a part of the day and be invested in us like they were one of the family; she was all of that and more. Thank you for being a part of our wonderful day. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your art.

Forever grateful.

We were lucky to find Meltem for our civil wedding ceremony. She is an amazing photographer, who captures emotions and beautiful moments! We received the photos a week later and it was like reliving the event, so she was able to convey the atmosphere. Thank you very much Meltem!

Meltem has photographed our civil wedding and truly did an amazing job. She is a very sympathetic & friendly person. Her style of documenting is unobtrusive and natural, which we like a lot. Nevertheless, she did manage to capture all the right moments, people, and small details in a flattering way with an awesome aesthetic & very tasteful grading! Thank you very much, we couldn't be happier!



let's schedule a coffee date!
