Hagia Sophia Photoshoot
We met in Sultanahmet for Hagia Sophia photoshoot session with Legrande and his friend.
Sultanahmet was the first place of our plan for the photo. We walk around German fountain, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace gate. Then we went to Süleymaniye. Mosque area. We shot the portraits of them around the Süleymaniye Mosque also. Istanbul rooftop photoshoot session was ended on the rooftop with unique and amazing Istanbul view.
There are various costumes for the photoshoot. You can rent them with fair price.
The Suleymaniye Mosque (Turkish: Süleymaniye Camii) is an Ottoman imperial mosque located on the Third Hill of Istanbul, Turkey. The mosque was commissioned by Suleiman the Magnificent and designed by the imperial architect Mimar Sinan. An inscription specifies the foundation date as 1550 and the inauguration date as 1557. Behind the qibla wall of the mosque is an enclosure containing the separate octagonal mausoleums of Suleiman the Magnificent and his wife Hurrem Sultan (Roxelana). For 462 years, the Süleymaniye Mosque was the largest mosque in the city, until it was surpassed by the Çamlıca Mosque in 2019. The Süleymaniye Mosque is one of the best-known sights of Istanbul, and from its location on the Third Hill, it commands an extensive view of the city around the Golden Horn. – Wiki
