Gina and Gera’s Wedding

Gina and Gera’s wedding day was dramatic: it was simply overflowing with emotions and beauty. We visited a couple of different sites in the city for the photoshoot while the ceremony and reception took place at the bright and airy Temple Emanu-El. There was a lot of excitement throughout the day and we loved being a part of it all.

Gina and Gera opted to see each other before the ceremony to allow more time for photos at a more relaxed pace. I can’t say enough about how much we love to shoot portraits earlier in the day. This also lets the couple to see each other for the first time in a more private setting – it’s so beautiful and emotional without having two hundred eyes on you.

We had such a blast photographing this day. Please enjoy some of our favorites:
