I am a Wedding & Portrait Photographer, and also a wife, humanist, animal lover.
I grew up and educated in Istanbul where Asia meets Europe. I have been exposed to different cultures, have had always a curious mind.
During college years I have taken several photography classes, loved doing it and often received compliments for my artistic eye. However, photography was just a hobby till my own wedding. Our wedding photographer’s not meeting our expectations turned into an inspiration for a new carrier in 2012. And Now Photography is my passion, my purpose so I feel incredibly fortunate to do what I do. I love photographing people, and like to be remembered as someone whose creative vision brought joy and confidence to others.
Year 2020 I have photographed close to hundred weddings now. Each wedding marks the start of a family. I have the opportunity to create timeless images for my clients that will be valued by generations. I get to meet with extraordinary people, learn about different customs, often tear up during their ceremonies, and fall in love with their loved ones throughout the event.
I get to express my creativity while running my own business and turning amazing clients into even better friends.
Today I still invest into trainings and workshops, I strive every day to become better in every way and I love the journey.
Deva brings her skills and diligence to everything she does. She is patient and kind, a joy to work with. She listens to your ideas and gave them a try. Her approach to the photo session is like " it's all digital so we can shoot as many as we need to get the right picture". When you are having photo session, you never feel rushed, but she also does it in a very efficient manner. She comes up with better ideas using your wishes as a guide.
Deva is an artist with a passion for perfection. We asked for a 3 hour session for our wedding and Deva captured every emotion and individual with breathtaking beauty. We recommend her to anyone who needs a photographer for any event or life cycle experience!!
Deva was very flexible and easy to work with - she was especially good with our 10-month-old daughter!
Deva! is one of the most amazing photographer. Not only the quality of her work is over the top but also, she is a sweet and professional person. I did my 5 year anniversary photo and I was glad, I found her. Thank you Deva!
My husband and I hired Deva to be our wedding photographer. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding photos came out. They were gorgeous! She made us look great! My first impression of Deva is friendly, warm, and dependable. Prior to our wedding, Deva spent time visualizing our special day by surveying the place of ceremony, reception venue, plus helping us find charming spots for our wedding portraits. And on the wedding day, in spite of the heat and humidity Deva worked really hard for us. Our guests commented how professional and dedicated Deva was. Deva also shot our beautiful engagement portraits. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wide variety of poses/backdrops to choose from and that the lighting for each shot was perfect. We had a lot of fun during our engagement photo shoot! All we can say is we loved working with Deva and we love her work!
Deva was great to work with. She made my fiancé and I feel very comfortable during the photoshoot. It was fun doing the photoshoot with her and her ideas were great. Her price was reasonable with what we received. We had our engagement shoot last week in Central Park and the weather was perfect. I would recommend Deva to anyone looking to have a location based photoshoot. She is also quick to respond to email and texts!
Deva was amazing to work with. I wished she shot both of our weddings in Boston and in NJ. She showed up early and made everyone feel comfortable with what she was doing. She did her job with a smile the whole entire time and without being pushy she guided us through what we need to do for the photos. You should definitely HIRE her for your special event.
Deva is an excellent photographer, and has an amazing talent for seeing the world with an artistic eye. I am not fond of taking pictures, but Deva made the entire process painless. I would even venture to say I enjoyed it. If you need pictures, be it wedding, engagement, or even corporate head shots, Deva is as good as they come.
Deva was great! She was very patient. I hired her at the last minute for my wedding which took place on Saturday and she was so understanding and accommodating - she came all the way out to Mamaroneck for me which I truly appreciate - thank you Deva from Veronica & Anthony
Deva was excellent to work with. She had great ideas for photos and everything was well done. The photos turned out wonderful.
My husband and I had a great experience with Deva. An hour of photography made it enjoyable and fun time for us. The pictures of my 3 months old son and then his 1 year old birthday party were just outstanding! Loved them! Deva is very easy going, flexible and does listen to what you want and has her professional opinion and ideas for photography. I'm looking forward to seeing Deva for my son's 2 year old birthday photo session and my husband's and I anniversary
