We are excited to announce the Jewish Wedding Photography Guide, the first in a series of cultural wedding guides we have planned for release in 2018!

We created this guide to help prepare photographers to successfully photograph Jewish weddings. To ensure success, this wedding guide explores several Jewish wedding traditions and provides specialized photography tips that will help you anticipate each of these significant moments and capture them when they happen.

The guide, available exclusively for our SLR Lounge Premium Members, includes  information and tips on the following:

  • Glossary of Jewish wedding terms so you’re familiar with every aspect of the wedding.
  • Sample wedding day timeline so you can anticipate and prepare for each moment.
  • Overview of Jewish wedding traditions, including the Ketubah signing, Kiddushin, Sheva B’rachot and more.
  • Photography tips so you can anticipate moments and create artistic, story-driven wedding photographs.
  • 80+ reference images for inspiration.
  • Plus more!

Jewish Wedding Traditions

Jewish wedding days are built on a number of unique traditions, and even these traditions vary within different branches of Judaism. Every wedding is different. Furthermore, some Jewish weddings only incorporate one or two traditions out of respect to the families, while others observe several. With such an array of nuances and elements, it is important that photographers know the important moments to capture.

Photography Tips

We have included insightful photography tips for covering Jewish weddings, from the ketubah signing to the hora dance, using our experience photographing countless Jewish weddings over the years. With recommendations on where to position team members, which angles to capture, and which lenses work best to capture those angles, the tips in this photography guide will give you the knowledge to anticipate moments and create artistic story-driven wedding photographs that honor the respective religions, traditions, and cultures of your clients.

Visual Inspiration

In addition to the photography tips, the accompanying images featured in each section of this guide have been included for visual reference. Culled from the catalogs of Lin & Jirsa Photography, each image directly relates to the topic at hand and should serve to inspire you when you find yourself applying what you’ve learned under the constraints of a real working environment.
