A weekly series where I ask some of the world’s best wedding photographers to pick out their favourite shot from their Jewish wedding portfolio. This week it’s the turn of Chris Mann.
‘We did it’ by Chris Mann
I always enjoy shooting Jewish weddings (even though they are usually quite hectic!) and this image is my favourite because it’s a special moment just between the couple. I normally do a short portrait session with the couple during the reception – and often I pause halfway through the shoot and make some excuse about “having to change the battery in my camera”. What I actually want though is to give them a moment to themselves. It’s usually the first time they’ve had since the ceremony to just be together and think “wow, we did it!” – and of course I am ready to take the picture of that moment.”
