Judaean Desert Engagement | Sylvia + Paul

Judaean Desert Engagement | Sylvia + Paul
This Judean Desert engagement session is one that we have been looking forward to sharing for a while now. The drive down from Jerusalem towards the Dead Sea is honestly one of my favorites. The rolling barren hills and canyons are beautiful to look at, and a sharp contrast from the greenery that you leave behind. When planning their session, Sylvia and Paul discussed[...]

Jerusalem Bridal Boudoir | Noa

Jerusalem Bridal Boudoir | Noa
Bridal boudoir is an opportunity for a woman to celebrate a beautiful milestone in her life and express her own unique sexuality. While the wedding is around the corner and most people are drowning in the chaos of planning their special day, it allows you to create a peaceful space where a woman can explore her femininity in a gorgeous setting. These are all elements [...]

Judean Hills Engagement | Simcha + Yossi

Judean Hills Engagement | Simcha + Yossi
There is something truly magical about the landscape amongst the Judean Hills that made it perfect for Simcha and Yossi's engagement session. It's always amazing to me how Israel consistently brings people together from different parts of the world. Many of who may have otherwise never met. Yossi grew up in Australia, coming to Israel as a pre-teen with his family,[...]

Caesarea Cellars Wedding | Kiley + Maayan

Caesarea Cellars Wedding | Kiley + Maayan
There is a quiet magical feeling about the ancient Roman port of Caesarea; waves crashing on the weathered stones. After getting ready at the not so distant Elma Arts Complex, it was there, on the remains of a Herodian street in Caesarea Cellars and surrounded by family and friends, that Kiley and Maayan stepped in to the next chapter of their lives together. Kiley[...]

Machane Yehuda Engagement | Jordana + Uri

Machane Yehuda Engagement | Jordana + Uri
I'm sure you have all hear the saying, "Good things come to those who wait." Well, that could not be more true in Jordana and Uri's case. Uri knew from the moment he met Jordana that she was the one for him, and as they became closer and better friends over the years it soon became obvious to Jordana as well... With their shared love and history in the area, Machan[...]

Lifta Ruins – Portraits | Harpaz Family

Lifta Ruins - Portraits | Harpaz Family
When discussing possible locations with Bruna for her family's session she had two requests, somewhere with a clear Israeli feeling and... cacti. The Lifta Ruins has plenty of both and made for the perfect backdrop to capture their first visit to Israel. Together we took the hike down, kids and all, and explored... Bruna and her family were visiting from Toronto, C[...]

Palmachim Beach Engagement | Rachel + Andre

Palmachim Beach Engagement | Rachel + Andre
Palmachim Beach is easily one of our favorites in Israel, both for photographing as well as just spending a relaxing day away from the crowds. It also made the perfect location for Rachel and Andre's engagement session. Andre surfed professionally in Hawaii, and Rachel grew up in Los Angeles, giving them both an affinity to the sea. They met through friends while s[...]

Baya’ar Wedding | Lea + Mike

Baya'ar Wedding | Lea + Mike
When looking for a place to have their wedding, Baya'ar was a perfect combination of things Lea and Mike both love - spending time in nature, beautiful aesthetics, dancing and having a good time. We really connected with Lea and Mike from when we first met them (via Skype!), as they both have a love of analog photography, and Mike is a filmmaker himself. While film[...]

Olmaya Wedding | Shterny + Yossi

Olmaya Wedding | Shterny + Yossi
While putting together this incredible Olmaya wedding, my seven-year-old daughter walked past the gallery of images. With her wide, twinkling eyes and goofy smile, she exclaimed, "Who is that beautiful bride?!" When I told her it was a wedding that we photographed in the summer of last year she said, "You're STILL working on it?" No, Ziva. Thank you. We just haven'[...]
