Over the past 13 years I’ve had honour of photographing hundreds of weddings, across a wide variety of cultures & religions. It’s incredibly important (especially for a wedding photographer!) to understand the intricacies of each & every religion’s ceremonies – to ensure that I’m in the right place to capture the best photos, all the while being unobtrusive & not distracting from the significance of the moment.
Afterall, You don’t want a photographer that’s going to be massively out of position for a key part of the ceremony, only to have to run up the aisle looking flustered to get into position, as a guest at weddings, I’ve seen it – it’s not pretty!
Jewish weddings are definitely among my absolute favourites to photograph – it’s always been my experience that the people at Jewish weddings are immensely welcoming, friendly & always up for a good party!
The day itself encapsulates such a huge range of emotions & feelings, from the solemnity of the ketubah signing, to the raising of the huppah for the ceremony – to the crazy, fun dancing in the evening! – I’m pretty sure I’ve come closer to injury covering the dancing at Jewish weddings than I have at any other wedding – but I love it, & when the hora (chair dance) breaks out in the evening, you’ll never get me away from the dance floor!!
Hava Nagila has been to soundtrack to many of my favourite wedding moments!
