I really enjoy cultural weddings and documenting various traditions and religious ceremonies. Jewish weddings are among them with so many religious, spiritual and cultural events which are a joy to watch. As with any other destination and local weddings, I strive to find new angles and creative ways to capture all the details differently. This is why none of my weddings are similar. If you look at various blog posts, you will notice all that. Each event is a unique art piece, just like the couples who are all different and expect their coverage to tailor their needs.
This Jewish wedding was among some of the most unique experiences I had as a wedding photographer. Nothing about this event was typical. Even their engagement session was out of the ordinary – dark clouds quickly turned into rain, yet these brave souls decided to continue! We all got wet, yet they received some of the most unique engagement pictures. The cover of the blog post(if you came from elsewhere, enter from the main page of the blog) has one of those rain engagement pictures.
Sort of in line with their proposal video…which gained more than half a million views and TV coverage due to it being out of the ordinary. So, going into their wedding I knew it will be a uniquely fun experience. Not to mention their wedding was on the 31st of December so they wanted to make it memorable.
Creative pictures were taken around downtown Toronto and due to the winter weather we had to find inside locations where it wasn’t any… So, we were going into various stores and taking fun images along the way. The reception took place in a warehouse which was beautifully decorated and setup. After tearful Ketubah and Chuppah ceremonies the real fun and party began. As you will see from the pictures bellow, the reception was a bit crazy. It’d put this as one of the top 10 craziest receptions I’ve ever had a pleasure documenting to-date. The number spot probably belongs also to a Jewish wedding I photographed in New York 2 years ago. It was also a party that lasted non-stop for 4 hours.
If you are also getting married in Canada or USA( I travel occasionally for weddings in New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles) and need a wedding photographer for your Jewish wedding with knowledge and experience of all the cultural and religious traditions then give me call or send an email.
