Our first experience as Jewish wedding photographers was amazing, we had such fun capturing Samara and Ben’s Jewish wedding at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate. It really was a truly memorable part of our wedding photography careers and we were so privileged to be allowed to capture their incredible celebrations.
Jewish weddings really do suit our style of photography, it is all about capturing those rapid fleeting moments (the dancing is really fast paced!) and we thrived on the challenge of capturing their story amidst the raucous activity. Our cameras were almost knocked out of our hands and pushed into our faces, people fell onto us, our feet were trodden on and we had glasses of water thrown on us BUT it was completely exhilarating and totally worth it and we can’t wait until we get the chance to partake in some Jewish wedding photography again!
Our mantra at weddings is to never use flash; our personal preference is to capture the atmosphere of the day without it which, with all the fast moving raucous dancing, certainly was a challenge but one we really enjoyed and we were thrilled that our couple loved the resulting photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!
Here are just a few of our favourite frames from Samara and Ben’s wonderful wedding.
