It was a true pleasure to film Yochanan's Shabbos Bar Mitzvah celebration. We filmed erev Shabbos and motzei Shabbos even against the snow storm. We didn't let anything to come in our ways and ruin this beautiful party. Everyone had a great time and at the end everything turned out well!
Check out this beautiful family with a meaningful act and message not just for Yochanan but for all of us!
I was privileged to be part of this amazing team. We worked for InFashion Magazine to create a beautiful product for their June - 'White Issue'. The stunning pictures will be featured on the front cover and in an interior spread with a short description about the team.
You always read about righteous people, families in children's books. (Yes, I'm stuck on that level :)) Families who have an average life but always seem so happy. They always want to do the right thing and always find the time to help others. Even when life rolls some complications in front of them they seem to get over it with an ease. They always listen sensitively for others' needs and the list goes on. For me the Cohen family comes to mind and I'm so lucky to call Menachem Mendel's mother my best friend.
I teamed up with Dini Groner Photography once again this past summer. Together, Dini and I got to capture this beautiful family and bring them to life.
Photocinema + Photography is the best of both worlds, you get beautiful portraits to display in your home as well as capture the spirit of your family in motion. These are treasures that only increase in value with time as your children grow older. You don't have to wait for the special occasion like a Bar Mitzvah or wedding, this can be included in your photo session with Dini Groner Photography.
I was so honored when Dani called me to film his wedding. He is an amazingly talented photographer who has a good eye for art so the pressure was on to be able to please a professional. Check out his work here.
I have never been at The Palace before. I really liked the interior decor of it and the lighting. :) I'll be honest I got carried away a bit with the trains and the noisy outdoor surrounding. Living in Monsey in a quiet neighborhood with a lot of space I had to figure it out how to get some outdoor shots of the hall when it's just so hidden under some train rails.
Etty and Dani were amazingly chilled in front of the camera and it was a pleasure to capture them as they were just being natural. They are both such nice people with cute siblings and great parents.
I have never ever seen a sephardic wedding before. So many different customs. During editing I heard how clear the audio was during the entire ceremony and heard the Rabbi singing the ketubah I knew I had to incorporate it somehow in the edit. It was so unique and different.
I feel so blessed for being able to get some private emotions from the couple too. The way Dani looks at Etty all the time is priceless. You can see how much he admires her. I also like the ending clip as Dani looks at Etty and tells her "We're married". That happened right after he puts the ring on her finger. A great moment to catch and I feel lucky that I was able to. Pure love!
Now I'll let you enjoy the visual and audio mix ;)
Major thanks to my friend and mentor Yoni Oscherowitz for filming it with me.
