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 Gamba Photographers.
‘Wow’ by Gamba Photographers
“It was very hard for us to pick one favourite photo. We always try to tell the entire story of the day as a series of images, but if we had to pick one photo it would be this one.
This shot shows the peak of excitement from Elad, looking at his bride Mirit for the first time in her wedding dress. Months of expectation let out in one single moment.
According to Jewish tradition the bride and groom do not see each other for 7 days prior to the wedding. Even though Elad had not seen Mirit for only the past 24 hours, his reaction was one of the most authentic and touching ones we have ever seen.”
