what’s the FUSS?

FUSS is the kind of brand that really makes me happy about what i do. Coming up with concepts for shooting and working with an amazing team, having fun on shoots that result in clean, simple, exciting photos.
Shooting for FUSS fills me with energy and I can’t wait for our next session together!
I feel connected to the brand, I wear their jacket when i ride my bike and get endless compliments about it.
I guess that’s what all the FUSS is about =)

Shahar and Ofir

last summer Shahar and Ofir did something amazing, they decided they want to get married in Shahar’s parents’ backyard. the yard was far from being ready to host anything, hardly even a picnic, but nothing stopped them. They cleaned up the place, flattened it, brought everything they needed and had a beautiful and more importantly fun wedding with every last detail thought about and executed to perfection.
I even had the chance to see the place a few weeks before the wedding so I could really appreciate the hard work and even give my two cents about lighting and other functions. They did such a great job, i think they should consider renting the place out for future events, make a few bucks from the hard work they did and knowledge they collected.

roni and ilya

Roni and ilya got married pretty quickly, I remember seeing on facebook that they got engaged and we got together to work on something and i asked her casually if they started making plans for the wedding and she said: “yeah, it’s gonna be in a couple of months”
she was really chill about it, didn’t want to deal with anything at first, she even thought that photography is a bit too much, she wanted it to be colorful and fun, and knew that no matter what, together with ilya and their vibrant friends it will definitely be a wedding to remember.
and so it was, I was sore for a couple of days after, and I’m very happy (and so is she) that i convinced her that photography is something worth considering.

barely bridal 9 כולה כלה

we had the incredible chance to shoot three dresses for the Barely Bridal project in this amazing location in Tel Aviv, The Pe’er hotel.
I heard about this place when Roni (from barely bridal 8) got married and thought it would be perfect to shoot there, i tried contacting them, but it didn’t really work out. I was there once for a saturday afternoon cocktail and fell in love with the place even more, but a few months after i was there, i saw an article saying that the place went out of business…. and we didn’t even get a chance to shoot there, oh no!
Then Yam wrote me on facebook, asking me to like her new page and it was for Pe’er hotel, since she’s gorgeous, works there and has modeling experience, it was pretty obvious I have to ask her if we can come to the hotel and shoot. She loved the idea and we went ahead with it.

The first dress we’re posting is Michal’s and this is what she had to say about her wedding and the dress:
1. so what’s the story?
– the whole wedding was organized in a month, we decided we’re going to get married and we left for Thailand for a month, when we came back, we had a month before the wedding and nothing was ready, i had an image in my mind of a dress I wanted to sew, a bit like a beach dress, a bit bridal, then i attended a wedding and the bride’s friend wore a simple dress that i really loved.  I found out a bit more about who designed it and went to meet her with my personal vision for my dream-dress.
2. Who made the dress?
– the dress was made by Liat Itach, in her studio in south Tel Aviv, step by step with lots of patience, except for the idea we didn’t have anything, we started building the dress piece after piece and changing details until the last moment.BPX_7900
3. how long did it take to make/find/choose/decide?
– the dress was ready within the month, in that month we had three measurement, and one long tour of the fabric market to find the perfect fabric.
4. price?
– at first it was $460 including the veil, but the fabric we chose made it a bit more costly and it ended up costing $640.

5. any regrets?
– no regrets, I was comfortable, easy, received endless compliments and more than everything I was myself. I wasn’t a bride tucked in a girdle or covered in pearls. It was simple, comfortable and to my taste, the most beautiful dress in the world. BPX_7920
6. A wedding dress for you is?
– Im not one of those girls who had dreams of her wedding since she was 15, so a wedding dress for me is a wedding dress. I wanted to enjoy the evening and not to worry. and I wanted to be myself, not in a costume, and that people could recognize me in all the fuss, and i succeeded.

champagne for my real friends and real pain for my sham friends

last night david and yosef opened a champagne lounge on the lower level of their restaurant with veuve clicquot. the lounge has a dark and sleek look, while the restaurant is much more flashy and loud. the champagne was great of course, and the food was amazing combining local delicacies with an international level of precision and presentation.

stolen goods

my dear friends Tom and Gal started designing cool stuff together. they’re making bags and you’re going to totally fall in love with them… yeah, with the bags, but no doubt, also with the girls.
they designed the bags to be simple and cool, they designed the prints and screen printed them themselves, sew them and sell them. last night they even popped up a shop and exhibition in the Kuli Alma Gallery.
I shot a bit before and while it was all going down, but there’s more coming up, more designs, more prints, apparel, accessories, posters, and whatever pops into their creative minds… check out the first peek from Stolen Goods

barely bridal 8 כולה כלה

this dress comes from a girl who is so crazy cool that you can’t absolutely love everything about her. And not only that, I also had the absolute privilege and pleasure to shoot her wedding, so when we started the barely bridal project it was obvious Roni’s dress will be a bit puffy shiny part of it.


When Sivan, our model walked out of the dressing room with this dress she was so vibrant and happy, and that made us happy as well that it’s not only in our head, and this dress is nothing short of amazing!

we asked Roni how she found the dress and a few thought about it and here’s what she had to say:
1. So what’s the story?
– I saw this dress by chance in a second hand store when I was there with a friend looking for a dress for her.

2.Who made the dress?
– I don’t know much about it, it says it was made in the US and the woman at the the second hand store said it’s from the 80s


3. how long did it take to make/find/choose/decide?
– I tried on the dress jokingly, saw it on the hanger and thought it was the most kitsch and over-the-top thing I have ever seen, and there no chance we’re leaving this store without at least trying it on. The next day I returned with my husband to be for his approval, to make sure I didn’t completely lose it and that it is actually perfect.

4. Price?
– $380

5. Any regrets?
– no. It’s a good thing we didn’t leave it in the store, just a pity I won’t get to wear it again.

6. A wedding dress for you is?
an opportunity to have fun and take a fantasy and go with it as far as you can.
