Columbus Ohio Backyard Jewish Wedding: Hagar + Anatoliy

I just loved being a part of Hagar and Anatoliy’s backyard Jewish wedding! Their big day combined their Israeli and Russian backgrounds for a meaningful and joyous celebration. Our day began with the couple getting ready – Anatoliy at his parents’ home, and Hagar at the Hilton Downtown. Their first look took place on the skywalk over High Street, and we continued from there with more portraits. No wedding party, no family, just the two of them! Afterwards, they hopped in their vintage Rolls Royce and headed to Anatoliy’s sister’s Berwick home for the festivities. From the ketubah signing and the bedeken, to the outdoor ceremony under the chuppah, you could feel the love and adoration among their family and friends. Their reception continued with dinner, toasts and cake, an outdoor dance floor, and some sunset portraits too! Mazel Tov to Hagar and Anatoliy!

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!
