Liz + Jordan: Columbus Ohio Jewish Wedding at Tifereth Israel

It’s an honor to be the one entrusted in capturing the memories of the wedding days of my clients, but it is particularly special when my own friends ask me to photograph their big day. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a guest at my friends’ weddings too, but being able to go behind the scenes, and be with them every step of the way, and then to be able to deliver their images to them – it’s a feeling difficult to put into words. And when the groom is the rabbi’s son… no pressure!

Knowing Liz and Jordan for some time now, I knew their wedding would be a heartfelt, family-focused celebration. Indeed, their Sunday morning brunch wedding at Congregation Tifereth Israel was both laid-back and full of energy, and reflected their diverse cultural backgrounds. We had a first look before the ceremony and got all portraits out of the way. From there, the group divided into separate simultaneous events with the kabbalat panim in the atrium and tisch just down the hall, culminating in both sides joining together for the bedeken and ketubah signing. The ceremony followed in the sanctuary, where they not only drank from the kiddush cup, but also drank tea as part of  Japanese tradition.

At their reception, guests enjoyed a southern-style brunch, were entertained by the Daniel Zwelling Band, and danced the hora with plenty of shtick! I coudn’t resist putting my camera down for a couple of songs myself. Mazel Tov to my friends, Liz + Jordan!

About

I aim to capture moments and expressions that tell the story of a day, and are authentic to the people involved. If you can look at a collection of images I’ve taken of a total stranger and get a feeling for who they are and what they felt, then I’ve done my job!
