[ Istanbul ]Phoebe + Jonah //Istanbul Pre-Wedding Session

Istanbul Pre-Wedding Session. Istanbul Honeymoon.
Earlier this May I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey for a couple of days to met Phoebe and Jonah, a newly wed couple from Singapore, who were in Europe on their honeymoon. Istanbul was one of the destinations they visited, and we discovered the city together taking photos.

We spent the morning mostly in Sultanahmet exploring the Grand Bazaar and shopping for lamps. We walked around the famous historical sites, and made the most out of a rainy day. In the afternoon we crossed the Galata Bridge over to Beyoğlu neighborhood for a taste of the local cuisine. Phoebe writes a food blog, and I had been following her for weeks before we met, so it was fun trying new dishes with them. If you’re a foodie like me, check out Phoebe’s Instagram page, you’ll love following her food explorations.

Maria,
Thank you so much for the pictures, we LOVE them to say the least and also for putting that beautiful end to our wedding. Whatever our own wedding photographer did not manage to deliver, you did. :) The rain was a great pity but the photos spoke otherwise, our first encounter with a casual shoot was fun, spontaneous and best of all, worth all the time we spent trudging through places and crowds. We’d be hanging one of them on our new home to remember the session.
