There is a lot to think about when you are photographing a wedding with over 150 guests, and trying to make sure both the groom’s and bride’s side gets an equal opportunity at being photographed, while keeping the bride and groom separate until the actual chuppah. This was a long day of photographing, but the results were well worth the hard work.
Feel free to browse some of my favorites below, or see a more complete gallery from the wedding here!
This photograph happens to be one of my absolute top favorites. The bride is sitting on the couch in between her grandparents and decides to kiss her grandma. As the kiss is happening the grandfather nervously looks in their direction. For me, his facial expression puts the icing on the picture.
The wedding was held at 770 Eastern Parkway, which is the center for Lubavitcher Jews. In the next two photographs, the bride stands near the picture of the Rebbe. In the photograph to the right a preschool group of boys passes, looking at the bride in fascination.
Helping the groom put on the white robe for the chuppah.
The bride, Bracha Chaya, being stunning.
Groom laughing with his father.
Boys peeking into the room that is prepared for the newlyweds with food, where they go right after the chuppah.
Bride and groom behind a frosted partition. I thought their traditional clothes made this photograph all the more special.
Hugging the sister. During dancing, such a moment is almost inevitable. You just have to be at the right place at the right time.
You are too loud. But I will stand and watch you anyway, while covering my ears.
The groom used to be an accomplished modern dancer (as you can see in the photograph on the right, where he is doing a pirouette for the bride). On the left the bride is lifted on a chair.
Bride dancing away in the womens section in a beautiful Bucharian style.
