My Story

HEY LOVERS, I AM SO STOKED YOU’VE WANDERED HERE

I am Gulshah your natural and fun
Melbourne wedding photographer

I am a wife to my husband Elyas and momma to my weird cat Mace. I am a Melbourne-based wedding photographer but can travel all around to document a wedding.

I lived the first 23 years of my life in Istanbul, a city so hectic and so delightful to experience. I moved to Australia in 2010 to study. I have made myself a home in the somewhat less hectic Melbourne. What it may lack in craziness, it makes up for with diverse cultures and beautiful landscapes.

 

Having had a successful career as a graphic designer, I was always drawn to the camera. Eventually, my journey began as a full-time wedding photographer in 2013. From the moment I shot my first wedding, I was hooked. I just loved what weddings stand for, the joy, the intimacy, the emotion.

So just a normal person (with a touch of weirdness) who loves cats, traveling, and cooking. And when I am not photographing weddings (or my cat) I will be hiking in some forest or on a beach soaking up the sunshine.

My Approach

IF YOU LIKE UNCONVENTIONAL, ROMANTIC, CREATIVE, AND REAL WEDDING PHOTOS, I’M YOUR PERSON.

 

My approach blends story-telling with creative visuals, supported by a strong eye for detail.

 

I strive to capture raw and honest moments creatively, decorated with gorgeous details, and filled with poetic light while you soak up every moment of the day. I understand that each moment of your day deserves an artistic approach and meticulous editing that is timeless. My signature style attracts couples looking for unique modern imagery that carries a romantic sense of cinematic beauty.

 

I believe that my role far exceeds that of a photographer. I assist my couples bringing my ten years of experience with my affirming presence throughout their planning journey. It means I will happily advise on timelines, amplify and elevate your ideas and can recommend perfectly suited wedding suppliers. I will work with you, providing invaluable guidance from the very first message to the final delivery of your heirloom gallery.

I always get this question from couples;

“what do you need from us?”

Killer question!

You just do you! No awkward posing which is not so fun either to do or shoot, I want you to be your ultimate intense selves, show me how you love each other, and let me showcase this, in its all honest glory and uniqueness, allowing your personalities to shine through the shots, believe me, you'll feel these photos to your core. I do not want to be just a vendor, I want to be your friend, a friend that cleans your dress from sticks, brings you food, and cries at your wedding.

I find it incredibly rewarding to be trusted to tell people’s stories through my images. If you let me be a part of your journey, whether it be an elopement or the full shebang, I would love to be “the one”.
