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 Mark Alesky.
‘The Fellas’ by Mark Alesky
Here’s an image that always makes me smile, I thought I’d give the men a chance of the spotlight. The wedding of Tina and Nir came my way as Nir is the brother of a good friend of mine. It was my first Jewish wedding — I knew some of the traditions but the one I was looking forward to most was the dancing. When the first Circle Dance started it was the men that took over the floor first.
I remember diving into the centre and sat on the floor within this spirited and enthusiastic bunch of fella’s, Nir is fourth from the right obviously absolutely loving the moment… they all needed to sit down after however!”
