Katie + Lev’s Jewish wedding in the Samarian hills, Jerusalem

April 2015

It was on the penultimate day of last year, whilst sitting around, waiting for the year to end, that an email pinged into my inbox.

Hello! A few years back you did a friends wedding of mine (Tal and Judith) and I still remember the album as being the best wedding album I have seen. I know this is a long shot, but I now live in Israel, and was planning on getting married at the end of March. I thought it was worth an email anyway, and I don’t mean to waste your time, but I wanted to get a quote for your services? Thanks, Katie

A Jewish wedding….in Israel?! How could I ever say no! These kind of experiences are what I love about being a wedding photographer, and photography in general for that matter. For me, it’s all about taking whatever opportunity you can to head away and capture something different for a while, and thankfully the wedding fell in between my trips to Myanmar and New York – I couldn’t believe my luck.

Katie headed to Israel a few years ago from London, and it was there that she met Lev, a native from Chicago, no less. They planned to have their day at Mitzpe Yericho, in the Samarian hills, just outside of Jerusalem towards the Dead Sea, and I couldn’t help but have a quick google of the place – I was astounded – such a unique and beautiful backdrop for a wedding. Through our single Skype call, and numerous emails in the weeks leading up to the wedding, I found Katie and Lev to be such a lovely, easy going couple, and I could tell that the day was going to be super relaxed, and seriously good fun. It didn’t disappoint…
