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[...]

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,[...]

Old City Jaffa Engagement | Simcha + Avi

Old City Jaffa Engagement | Simcha + Avi
The Old City vibe in Israel always feels a little magical, but when paired with the ocean waves in Jaffa, you really can't ask for a better backdrop. Simcha and Avi met through friends and their first date was actually in the Jerusalem Shuk. With a shared passion for food and cooking, poetry and the fine things in life, it's not hard to imagine how they fell in lov[...]

Piccolino Wedding | Galia + Michael

Piccolino Wedding | Galia + Michael
At Piccolino in Jerusalem, friends and family gathered to witness as Galia and Michael celebrated the start of the next chapter in their lives. There is something that is so special about small, intimate, weddings because you know that everyone there was carefully chosen and important to the couple. Galia and Michael's wedding was no exception. It was a hot summer day[...]

HaTachana Tel Aviv Engagement | Galia + Michael

HaTachana Tel Aviv Engagement | Galia + Michael
We met at HaTachana in Tel Aviv on a beautiful summer evening for their engagement session. Being so close to the beach it made it the perfect location to add some variety. Galia had always dreamt of a session by the sea, so after spending time in the old train station we headed down to the water... It was during her first time visiting Israel, while on a trip with[...]

Lifta Bridal Portraits | Muna + Ali

Lifta Bridal Portraits | Muna + Ali
We met amongst the remains of Lifta for their bridal session... While Muna and Ali both live in the north, they chose to incorporate a session in Jerusalem as part of their multi-day wedding celebration. Ali had grown to love the area while studying nearby when he was younger, making the decision an easy one. Braving the intense heat, we explored the paths between [...]

Valley of Hinnom Engagement | Mona + Herve

Valley of Hinnom Engagement | Mona + Herve
As we sat in the cafe at the Mount Zion Hotel before their engagement session, overlooking Jerusalem's Old City walls and the Valley of Hinnom, I could tell that there was something special about Mona and Herve. I suppose we knew already throughout our email correspondence, hearing about their story, their love for each other... and pain au chocolat. Seeing them in fr[...]

Old City Engagement | Joanna + Alex

Old City Engagement | Joanna + Alex
They say that true love is worth waiting for, worth fighting for, and in Joanna and Alex's case the saying could not be any more true. Anyone who knows the women in the Snowdon family can tell you that they are beautiful, kind and full of wonderful attributes, but they do not give their hearts easily. They might also tell you that the winning over of Joanna's heart wa[...]

Lifta Engagement | Cassy + Ilan

Lifta Engagement | Cassy + Ilan
People often talk of the warm, bright, Mediterranean light we get here in Israel, but there is something so special and unique about the softer light of winter and the colors it produces on film... It was especially fitting that the day we had scheduled for Cassy and Ilan's session was one such over-cast day, since they are both self-proclaimed fans of winter and a[...]
