About Me

Hi, my name is Sami

I am a professional wedding photographer from Zurich with many years of experience with weddings in Switzerland and abroad. I decided to become a wedding photographer because I like to be surrounded by happy people filled with positive emotions. I love to capture these spontaneous emotions in my pictures. I love to be spontaneously creative.
I love to laugh and to make people laugh. Instead of telling you how great I am, I hope you will visit my gallery and let my pictures do all the talking.
