Ira and Omer

BPX_8864One day Ira and I talked about shooting something in the studio, I don’t remember what it was and we didn’t even go through with it, we have these conversations once in a while, when Ira, being the successful fashion blogger that she is, wants to do something more interesting than shooting with her phone, like we did one time with Tommy Hilfiger.
Then, out of the blue, she asked “Hey! you want to shoot my wedding?” I was shocked, I didn’t even know she was engaged, and the funny thing about her wedding is that so much theatrical drama was planned for wedding, and Ira knew exactly what she wanted, so there was no drama-drama around the wedding.  ira and omer blog collages3
B: we can also do a preshoot before the day of wedding, something stylish, that would be fun, right?
I: Perfect! let’s go to Jerusalem!
B: Seriously? I meant, like chill, at home, in your natural surrounding, relaxed.
I: Yeah, but I thought full hair and makeup, all the dresses in a stunning location.
B: OK….
I: Mamilla will be perfect!
B: OK…

so we went to Jerusalem.
The wedding itself was in Alma in Even Yehuda, with lots of live music, good food, fine wine and lots and lots of flowers, Just like Ira wanted it.

life according to Ortega

BPX_3695
When Ortega called me to say he’s working on a new album I was excited, I knew he’s cooking up something serious. When we first started working together he was a new player in, a local rap prodigy, now he’s one of the leading rappers in the game, and in the past ten years he’s been everywhere, on every small and big stage in the country, shows abroad, television, radio, solo performances and collaborations with the biggest names in the underground as well as mainstream musicians.

this weekend he’s celebrating the release of his new album with guests in a killer show that I’m personally very excited about

Neta and Gilad

20150813183347-BPX_3734
Neta and Gilad were probably one of more vibrant, cheerful, and loving couples we had the opportunity to shoot. Half-full kind of people. Getting ready for the wedding, they kept me in the loop of Gilad’s mother’s medical condition that wasn’t good and how it may change the time and location of the wedding. At the end they decided to have their wedding at Alenby Ranch and his mom could not attend, she was with them in their hearts and via Skype. Not long after the wedding, she passed away, and I can’t remember meeting a happier and prouder mother on a wedding day as Rivka was that afternoon.

mor and pipe

20150709155025-BPX_6782
Mor married Amit, but I know him as Pipe, and have known him for many years, from being a turntablism scratch prodigy and rocking out in the biggest hip hop parties and live events and now that he teaches the next generation of DJs.
When he told me he’s going to get married, I knew it’s going to be a blast. Taking their pictures on the beach with their boards was fun, but i knew the best was yet to come with a bunch of the hottest local DJs on their guest list, who got up the stand one after the other and in several occasions even a few together, including our groom.mor and pipe blog collagesmor and pipe blog collages220150709152434-BPX_660120150709154122-BPX_668220150709154001-BPX_666020150709155121-BPX_681220150709173322-BPX_6962mor and pipe blog collages420150709154629-BPX_673020150709173210-BPX_6952mor and pipe blog collages320150709172651-BPX_687220150709181447-BPX_712220150709181416-BPX_711020150709173926-BPX_7009mor and pipe blog collages5mor and pipe blog collages6mor and pipe blog collages7mor and pipe blog collages820150709200122-BPX_751420150709195353-BPX_743720150709200200-IMG_393120150709200208-BPX_752220150709201135-BPX_758920150709201512-BPX_760020150709213012-BPX_776420150709202921-BPX_763620150709202941-BPX_764320150709224441-BPX_816420150709224340-BPX_815220150709224132-BPX_8128mor and pipe blog collages920150709225939-BPX_828620150709213715-BPX_7805mor and pipe blog collages1020150709223919-BPX_811020150709234316-BPX_8465mor and pipe blog collages1120150709231547-BPX_837520150709214132-BPX_782220150709221006-BPX_796020150709221734-BPX_801520150709225349-BPX_823420150709232009-BPX_839720150709224456-BPX_816820150709230447-BPX_830720150709213836-BPX_7812mor and pipe blog collages1320150709220624-BPX_7935mor and pipe blog collages1520150709225755-BPX_825320150709233449-BPX_8439mor and pipe blog collages1420150709214739-BPX_7879mor and pipe blog collages1220150709231619-BPX_837820150709235258-BPX_852120150710002953-BPX_860520150710003006-BPX_860820150710002936-BPX_860320150710004331-BPX_8640

barely bridal #12 כולה כלה

BPX_2446
Lital and Nir had a small wedding that was fortunate to take part of. Their wedding was fun and laid back and was exactly what we talk about in the barely bridal project. And as if being chill wasn’t enough, Lital’s answers and story behind the dress are simply perfect.barely bridal 12  blog collagesbarely bridal 12  blog collages2
1. what’s the story behind the dress?
– for the life of god I never wanted a dress with a story, but when we decided to get married my mom suggested her well-kept dress, and that was easy and available, but the rest of the story is that we started telling ourselves how we’re going to pass it on from generation to generation,  and that’s a bonus, less of what’s the story, more like who.
BPX_2428BPX_2437-2BPX_24612. who made it? where did you get it?
-oh, good thing you asked, the dress was made by Aunt Jinet, who isn’t actually my mom’s aunt, but a holocaust survivor friend of my grandfather, rest his soul. Aunt Jinet was a seamstress, her and her partner never had kids, so as long as my mother can remember, she would promise her that when the time comes she will sew her wedding dress. I don’t know how much my mother took this threat seriously, but when she returned to France with the new about her marrying my dad, Aunt Jinet jumped up with the measuring tape and the rest is history. But I can’t really stop here, because even though my mom’s English lace selection was stunning, her wedding was in the 80s, meaning that there was enough of it to build a small tent, especially around the shoulder area, and of course a thick-thick belt that was finished with a huge gift style bow in the back. I tried it on, my dad laughed and almost choked, and said “it looks very modest”. Luckily, I reached out to Odelia Arnold, a fashion designer who’s talent cannot be described in words, she totally took apart the dress and was very attentive before reconstructing in to the stunning result before you.BPX_2487
3. how long did it take to make?
– the second time around was six weeks from our first meeting with two measurement sessions. The first time, Im guessing it took a while, even though Aunt Jinet was ready for it for 26 years, I can assume it was pretty quick.BPX_2497
4. price?
– $200 for the alterations, the first time around was free + emotional taxes.
BPX_2506BPX_2533
5. any regrest?
– far from it.
BPX_2512
6. A wedding dress for you is?
– not a big deal. My mom was actually the first one to get married in a white dress after my grandmother and great grandmother were even more undermining than we were and got married in pants. I think it’s mainly cool if you can make it into a family thing and load it with a personal story. I wish I’ll be able to pass it on to someone from the next generation to do whatever her heart pleases with it.
another thing is that i think a wedding dress in general is quite embarrassing from its roots, and I don’t see any purpose in adding drama to it. Who are you, women who get married in kawabanga and crystal dresses that cost like half an apartment?BPX_2526

Tal and Elad

Tal and Elad like having a good time and it shows. Their wedding was on an incredibly hot day, and we wanted to shoot them near their apartment in central Tel Aviv,  so we went to their favorite breakfast spot (where they actually had breakfast that morning) we hopped on a bus, got pizza, went to shopping plaza, danced in the street and had fun with any idea or location that popped to mind.
Later that evening, Avigdor was filled with over-the-top energy and a ton of photos that were hard to choose from.

Keren and Noam

BPX_4119.jpg
KISS- keep it simple stupid is a good rule that all creatives know and hopefully follow, and it makes perfect sense that it will be used when both the bride and groom are creatives and plan their wedding.
A beautiful venue with great food, good music, close friends and family and lots of glitter and disco balls.
