A Fair Wedding

By WeddingNo Comments

Words simply cannot explain.  Goosebumps still let my arm hair raise when I think about the strong sense of love that was so overwhelmingly present on this day.  The ceremony was one of a kind.  Rye-lee looked stunning and beyond and their spontaneous laughter, tears and praise filled the canopy of trees under which they promised themselves to each other.

I want to write a whole book on this beautiful day, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking instead.

The Esrechowitz Kiddushin

By Wedding2 Comments


The day Jenna Nadelman and Blake Esrechowitz chose to celebrate their union, started with the hint of celebrations chiming in the wind.  Everything about this day was special.  Excitement and anticipation was creeping in to the toes of everyone about to share this Kiddushin – the jewish word for Betrothal ceremony.

I started the day with Blake and his 14 groomsmen over at Zevenwacht Estate.  The strong brotherly bond between all these men was really something incredible to witness.  Most of them childhood friends supporting and celebrating their friend’s glorious day.
I then made my way to the most beautiful, most calm and caring bride, Jenna.  The girls chatting, laughing and getting excited for the big event.The first tradition was the Bedeken Ceremony.  An age old jewish unveiling ceremony.  After spending a week apart without any verbal contact, the groom and bride see each other for the first time before the wedding ceremony.  This is where the groom lifts the veil of his most beautiful bride to make sure, that he will indeed be marrying his love.

I had so much fun experiencing all the traditions that were to follow – the breaking of the glass, seeing most beauitful Chuppa made by the groom’s mom, under which they recited the seven blessings.  The hora dances were possibly the most fun I’ve experienced at a wedding!  My goodness! So much excitement, love, laughter and emotions!This was certainly a wedding I’ll remember for  years to come!  Loved every second of it.

To Blake & Jenna – MAZEL TOV!

Snowscape

By PhotographyNo Comments

This was one of the most daring shoots I’ve done so far. Very different from my usual style and genre, but it turned out to be so much fun and such a great learning phase.
My model, Aletta was such a trooper and without her this shoot would never have materialized.  We met a day before the shoot in a Starbucks cafe to throw some ideas around.

And lucky that we did it on this day since the snow came really early this year when it was still relatively hot and it all melted within a day. Originally we had all sort of ideas but we lacked the time to plan it all.  Now we are waiting for the next snowfall to have those ideas come to life.
