Orthodox Jewish Wedding Photographer

An Orthodox Jewish Wedding Photographer is able to experience a myriad of traditions and rituals. The Orthodox Jewish Wedding of Danielle and Sam Weprin took place on the property of Daniella’s father’s home just outside of Philadelphia on August 19, 2010. It was a beautiful summer day in Pennsylvania, and a wonderful day to be an Orthodox Jewish Wedding Photographer. Jewish weddings ceremonies are beautiful occasions during which a number of customs take place. Common aspects of a Jewish ceremony include the signing of the ketubah (the marriage contract), vows being said beneath a chuppah (wedding canopy), and the breaking of a glass by the groom. The chuppah is typically made of four thin poles, with a white cloth creating a canopy over the bride and groom. The chuppah is meant to be a symbol of the happy, welcoming home the bride and groom will build together. In this image the only evidence of the chuppah is the sheer white fabric that blows gently in the left corner of the picture, and the flora that hang from the top of the canopy. The image is black and white, highlighting the contrasting light and dark shades that make up the picture and drawing attention to the eyes of the bride and groom. In the forefront of the picture the rabbi stands before Danielle and Sam, preparing to announce them as husband and wife. The couple look ahead, their expressions poised and ready to step into this new chapter of their relationship.
