    We worked with Gulsum for an outdoor family photoshoot in June, following all precautions to keep us safe during the covid time. What an incredible and fun experience! She is communicative, professional, and talented. I loved how she gave us direction on how to pose and encouraged us to come up with being natural in our expressions. She was friendly and a joy to be with. She took hundreds of shots and came up with 40 perfectly edited photos that captured our family in the summer bliss. We were very pleased with our images, absolutely beautiful. We had so many favorites. We highly recommend Gulsum photography services for your future photoshoot and so grateful to Gulsum for making it such a unique and memorable experience!

    Gulsum was able to capture a very special moment in our lives. She was so sweet, accommodating and patient with us. She knew exactly how to capture our memories that will last a lifetime. I am so happy and grateful to her for the beautiful pictures of our special moment.

    I had an amazing portrait photoshoot with Gulsum in June 2020, in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco. I enjoyed it so much. During my session, I changed two outfits. Gulsum knows the secrets of framing around the streets, Mission murals and graffities, Victorian buildings, with flowers that made my portraits so lovely, interesting, and fun. Gulsum was mindful about the natural lighting. I felt so comfortable to share my thoughts to find some original ideas together and appreciate that a photographer could guide me well how to pose naturally. I love my photoshoot and photos! Month later, we hired Gulsum again for a new photoshoot together with my partner.

    Gulsum is an amazing photographer, very easy to work with! She knows tons of interesting locations in the city and the best time of the day to make your best shots!

    She also does her post photo shoot work fast and accurate. I love her pictures!

    With Gulsum’s shots I was able to get a job at one of the modelling agencies in SF.

    I strongly recommend this photographer for your best photo shoot!
