Having the opportunity to be a Jewish Wedding Photographer is a true privilege. A Jewish wedding is a divine event, grounded in religious and cultural traditions. The wedding day is considered to be a new beginning for the bride and groom. It is a day when their past mistakes are forgiven as the two become one complete soul. The ceremony takes place under a Chuppah - a canopy - and is a symbol of the home the couple will build together. During the wedding ceremony, the Ketubah is read to the bride and groom and is signed by two witnesses. The Ketubah is a document that outlines the responsibilities of the husband to his new wife. The wedding ends with the groom shattering a glass on the floor by stomping on it. Once this has occurred, it is time to celebrate! My goal as a Jewish Wedding Photographer is to capture each moment of tradition and celebration for the couple and their families to cherish in the years to come. This picture was taken in the midst of the joyful reception, as the bride and groom were lifted into the air on chairs. There is no mistaking the euphoric expression of the bride as she enjoys the evening festivities with her husband. The black and white photograph draws attention directly to the bride and the smile on her face. Her eyes are alive with excitement and wonder, and her expression is one of uninhibited delight. This night will be one that the bride and her beloved groom will remember for the rest of their lives together.
