How a Dove commercial made me cry…

I woke up the other morning to my Facebook feed blowing up with this Dove commercial.  To be honest, I’m not much of a YouTube person, I rarely watch the funny videos floating around. But when some of my female photographer friends that share my enthusiasm for helping women feel beautiful, comment about bawling over this video… I had to watch it.

I feel strongly that every woman should watch this…

 

 

I’ve watched this video over and over. Like many, the most impactful part for me, was revealing the visual differences between a woman’s own perception of herself and the perception of others.  What I love most about being a wedding photographer is the ability to show women the beauty I see. When I look at my clients, I see a beautiful, amazing woman.  It is incredibly fulfilling and powerful for me to get to show women what I see in them.

MUCH LOVE!

Jewish Wedding Photographer :: Grand Hyatt Denver

Matt + Nurit | Married

When Matt and Nurit first contacted me, they asked how I felt about photographing an modern orthodox Jewish wedding celebration. To be honest, I’d never been a part of one before. I’d photographed numerous interfaith weddings where Jewish traditions were mixed in, but never orthodox. I was excited for the opportunity, and more than willing to do my research and learn.
I loved Matt and Nurit’s connection, they are high school sweet hearts, just like Aaron and I.  And I greatly understood the trust they were placing with me to capture the spirit of their day.

Looking back through Matt and Nurit’s day has been a blast.  The WHOLE day is filled with spirited celebration and meaning. Literally hours of incredible interaction and symbolism. I know I say it often, that it is an honor for me to be a part of anyone’s wedding day, but for Matt and Nurit, I felt as if they gave me a gift. An amazing experience and glimps into a way of life I’ve never seen. Thank you!
MUCH LOVE
