Yoni and Tamara in New York City

Weddings in New York – they’re like buses. You wait for ages and then two come along at once. Ha – if only it was that simple.

Here’s a bit of background into what you’re about to feast your eyes on.

Last year I got a call from good friend of mine, fellow Cahooter and top wedding photographer Eric Savioe. He told me about an amazing opportunity to shoot this big wedding in New York for Tamara and Yoni and wanted to know if I would be free to shoot it with him. “Cancel everything! I’m there!”

So fast forward just a few weeks and there we are, shooting this incredible Jewish wedding in Brooklyn that was just lip-smacking all of our senses constantly with sights and sounds that we’d never experienced before. Mazel tov! Every so often Eric and I would catch sight of each other, raise our eyebrows and smile as if to say “Man! This is awesome! How did we land this one?! Unreal!”

We had an absolute blast. It was incredible to experience a wedding with completely different cultural aspects to what we’re used to, an honor to work with an amazing fellow photographer in Eric, great to have so many visual elements in NYC to work from but best of all was that it was such a joy to meet two of the nicest people (as well as downright photogenic) I’ve had the pleasure to photograph. Tamara and Yoni. Thanks for having Eric and myself there and trusting us to fly over that big ocean to come and witness and be a part of your day. It still blows my mind.

Below is an slideshow that Eric put together. It’s a collection (a mashup, a mixup, A mixmash!) of both Eric’s and my shots. Two photographers telling the same story in their own unique way. I hope we do this again. It’d be a crying shame if we didn’t.

Separate to the slideshow, here are my shots. My side of Tamara and Yoni’s story. Please – once you’ve finished having a look – go see Eric’s. He knocked it out of the park – which coincidentally landed in different but much better and more incredible park.
