One of the best parts about this job is being able to capture your friends’ special moments. We had the opportunity to photograph our friends Ben and Emma. We were so happy when they chose us to capture their wedding and you can see in these’s two’s expressions why. Their love for each other is undeniable and their happiness is nothing short of contagious! Ben and Emma’s wedding was at the beautiful and charming Trolley Barn in Inman Park, Atlanta.
Throughout the day, we were able to witness and experience a variety of new traditions which we had never seen before in person. We had an amazing time on this day with this fun couple and their loving families!
Ben & Emma – Thank you again for having us capture your wedding. We loved learning about your culture and traditions and being able to experience it first-hand! We hope you enjoy these photos and have more coming to you soon!
Special thanks to Sebastian Brooks for being our second shooter and capturing some great photos such as the one above.

Below is a shot of Ben during the signing and witnessing of the Ketuvah – the marriage contract writen in Hebrew, which details the husband’s obligations to his wife.
Another tradition we loved witnessing was was when the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom stand together and break a plate!
After the marriage license signing, the groom does the Bedekin or “veiling” of the bride. Ben was accompanied by his father, father-in-law, groomsmen, and other male guests to greet Emma. You can see some shots of the men singing along when Ben and Emma see each other for the first time!
Some more great detail shots by Sebastian!
Of course our favotire part was capturing the Hora (chair dance). Here is a shot of Ben and Emma during the dance!
