2 Years of experience

I am a storyteller that loves capturing life.


Hi, I'm Tugba*, I am a professional photographer in triangle area with experience of years. I love taking pictures of Family, Children, Seniors, Graduations etc. I prefer natural light, simple poses, and candid shots, rather than trendy styles, lots of props, or a heavy use of Photoshop and filters. I don’t want to distract from the purpose of the photo, which is to capture you exactly as you are, at that beautiful moment, with the people you love, in an image that will stand the test of time.

When I’m not behind the camera, I’m with my husband and two children or learning something new. Thank you for stopping by my page. Feel free to message me anytime, or book your appointment online if you’re ready to schedule a session. I’d love to work with you!

Tugba was great to work with! She had good knowledge of our desired shoot location beforehand, and also recommended similar locations in the area, one of which we thought sounded better and it was. At the shoot, she made us feel comfortable and able to relax and have fun. The pictures we received were all fantastic and the hardest part of the whole process was choosing which ones we wanted to use. 10/10 would recommend.

    Tugba is AMAZING!!! She is the best photographer I have ever worked. She has a natural eye for getting that perfect shot. She is taking care of every single detail that I have never ever thought about it before. I have worked two times with her. The first one was for my newborn baby. Tugba really knows how to work with babies. My baby was so comfortable with her, and we have GREAT photos! Since I was very happy and satisfied with the first session, I asked her to take our photos during a celebration party, and I re-witnessed to her professionalism. She gifted us wonderful memories/photos. I highly recommend her service to anyone looking for the best photos! I will be coming back for future memories.

    Tugba is an amazing photographer! She has photographed my daughter several times and most recently did a mommy and daughter session for us. Her pictures never cease to amaze me! She gives great direction yet captures natural moments. I highly recommend her and am looking forward to our next session together!

    Tugba was the perfect photographer for our wedding. From the first moment meeting her, she felt like an old friend who we could trust with such an important event. Simply put, her costs were competitive, reasonable, and transparent; her pictures were beautiful and captured all aspects of all events during the wedding; she was friendly and fun to work with, adding to the happiness of the day. We recommend her to everyone we know

    I never thought I could look so young again! Tugba was very professional and accommodating in our photo shoot. She knew what she was doing; she was communicating very well with me and my boys in order to get the best shots for the best pictures! I can say she takes the time to know her clients and puts value in her work. I can't wait until Spring so we can have her take photos of the whole family!
