Cap­pado­cia, per­fect back­drop for wed­ding pho­tos

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Front Page -

JACKY Ziu and Linda Gi­aco from Chengdu, China are get­ting mar­ried in a month, but not be­fore they trav­eled thou­sands of kilo­me­ters to get their wed­ding pho­tos taken in Cap­pado­cia, Turkey.

And they are not alone. Thanks to an out­landish land­scape, dot­ted with fairy chim­neys and hot air bal­loons, Cap­pado­cia is see­ing a stream of foreign tourists - new­ly­weds in par­tic­u­lar.

Speak­ing to Anadolu Agency (AA) Ziu and Gi­aco said that they arrived with a 14-man pho­tog­ra­phy team and would have photo shoots at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions in the re­gion for two days.

Ziu said he learned about Cap­pado­cia on the in­ter­net and thought the view here was very in­ter­est­ing. “The re­gion is very au­then­tic. It is very beau­ti­ful,” he said.

Most of the cou­ples are from China and Rus­sia. Pho­to­shoots be­gin early in the morn­ing; con­tinue well through the day until af­ter sun­set. Along with their pho­tog­ra­phy teams, the cou­ples are will­ing to go the ex­tra mile to pick the best lo­ca­tion, catch the best light and choose the right an­gle - for pho­to­graphs that they may cher­ish for the rest of their lives.

“We wanted to have a beau­ti­ful photo al­bum be­fore the wed­ding. Once we saw what Cap­pado­cia has to of­fer, we de­cided this was it. There are many beau­ti­ful places in the world but none like Cap­pado­cia.

“We even want to shoot some pho­tos when we are up there in a hot air bal­loon,” said Ziu.

Par­nan Tong, in charge of Ziu and Gi­aco’s pho­tog­ra­phy team, said: “We have 14 crew mem­bers in to­tal. We have shot some very beau­ti­ful pictures and videos of Ziu and Gi­aco. We will re­turn next month with an­other cou­ple.”
