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 Niv Shimshon.
‘Sheer happiness’ by Niv Shimshon
This is one of my favourite images from a Jewish wedding. The groom’s parents are being lifted on chairs during the Hora and they are fully present in the moment. Their happiness shines through this image that truly shows the power of photography in stopping a split second moment and making it a part of this family story for the generations to come.”
