Yemin Moshe: a must for weddings

Yemin Moshe is a gem! It is not by chance that this mythical Jerusalem neighborhood is one of the favoured spots for wedding photographers… and that so many brides chose to spend some pre-wedding hours here.

Yemin Moshe was the first neighborhood built outside the Old City  – it was in 1892 – a place in which the stone of Jerusalem now mingles with the shimmering color of the flowers.

The view overlooking the Old City is one of the classic views of the capital, while the Montefiore Windmill has become one of the symbols of Jerusalem’s reconstruction.

No wonder this place remains one of the most romantic spots in Israel, or maybe simply THE most romantic!

It is always a pleasure for me to photograph a bride in this place, full of history, in the small streets of a neighborhood, perfect for that special memory!

The magic of a wedding in Israel

What are the ingredients of the magic of a wedding? Let’s begin by something specific to Israel: it is THE place to meet people with different cultures. Gaby is from Rio de Janeiro and Adam from New York – and I’m French 🙂 To meet each other could only take place in Jerusalem !

But, more basically, the ingredients of a jewish wedding – I tried to express this through these pictures – is the mix of kedusha and simcha, sanctity and happiness, that everyone can feel.

When friends come – whatever their origin and whatever their age – to rejoice the hatan and the kallah, the atmosphere is simply fantastic ! That is the magic of an orthodox jewish wedding… and I hope my pictures achieve to transcribe this extraordinary atmosphere !
