Named 'Best Destination wedding photographer in the world'
Hi, I’m Cengiz, the founder of Kiss Me in Paris. I’m a proud Dad (and pet parent), an unshakable optimist, and a photographer with a passion for engaging and inspiring people.
Photographing couples around Paris (and the world) makes me happy. I truly believe photoshoots can be so much more than just pretty photos. The way I see it, they are a splendid opportunity for two soulmates to unwind from their busy daily lives, connect blissfully in the most romantic city known to mankind, and celebrate the special relationship they share.
My approach to photography emphasizes loads of fun and laughter, a believable connection, and boundless creative energy. I obsess over the essential details (dangling hands, natural breathing, flattering angles), so you don’t have to. The result? Well, a fantastic time with utterly beautiful pictures.
P.s. rumor has it that I know the most delicious hot chocolate in town, so plan a little time for after our shoot.
I love the Lakers, wood-oven pizza, my dog Brownie, and sharing a fabulous Bordeaux with my wife Chantelle.
I’m honored to have been named best destination photographer in the world, and best Dad by my super-cool daughter, London.
I earned an MBA from the Wharton School of Business, where Chantelle and I met. After a few years on Wall Street, I gave up a promising career in finance to pursue my love for people photography.
When I’m not taking photos, you’ll find me enjoying life to its fullest in Southern Italy and the Côte d’Azur.
