Yehuda and Timema's Orthodox Jewish Wedding at Dyker Beach Park and Golf Course, Brooklyn New York

I can talk about photography, cameras, composition, ISO, aperture and all other technical and exciting parts of being a photographer, for hours.  At only age 15, it seemed Yehuda’s interest had been piqued.  So we chatted, and I ended up teaching him bits here and there.  It quickly became clear that he had an innate talent, and I was not so much teaching, as guiding what came naturally. We talked and went on photo walks, he assisted me and then started shooting for me.  Now he has his own photography business, and I can't help but feel proud and lucky to have been able to watch him grow into himself in the world of Jewish photography.

It came as an honor, 9 years later, when he asked me to photograph his wedding to Timema.  It is definitely a different experience to capture the wedding day of someone who has become a professional in his own right, but honestly, they made it easy. The looks they shared, the way they danced to ‘From the Ground Up’ by Dan and Shay, all of the family and friends gathered together in joy for them; these are all of the moments that I look for, thrive on, and absolutely love capturing.
