agadir block party

BPX_3024
i thought about writing a bit about how i usually miss these events and then feel bad about not going, and, and, and… no one cares… but the agadir block party by the dolores crew  (probably the most important thing that happened to the israeli skateboarding scene in the past few years) is really simple.
skateboarding, hip hop, live shows, burgers and beers. a great way to start a holiday! BPX_3048BPX_2769BPX_2923BPX_2730BPX_2758BPX_2790BPX_2789BPX_2812BPX_2819BPX_2831BPX_2718BPX_2788BPX_2784BPX_2783BPX_2780BPX_2776BPX_3305BPX_3269BPX_3182BPX_3173BPX_3124BPX_3117BPX_3103BPX_2948BPX_2947BPX_2939BPX_3309BPX_3324BPX_3338BPX_2803


time to revolt

haPussy Shel Lucy (lucy’s pussy) is no doubt one the most influential and important bands to come out of the Israeli punkrock scene. but their story and their history isn’t important for this post (as interesting as it may be, and it really is) but what’s important is that their new album kicks ass! you can hear it here, and their show a couple of nights ago was so good, musically, the vibes, the crowd, the guests, everything was perfect.
time to join the revolution!

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.

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.

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.

barely bridal 10 כולה כלה

we took a way too long break with the barely bridal project, but we’re detremined to get back on track, post the dresses we have, tell the stories, and start working on future shoots.
we’re stepping back into action with Adi Richter who knew what she wanted to spend more money on and what she didn’t. she got married in this beautiful dress and here’s what she has to say about it:
BPX_3995
1. So what’s the story?
– I always thought it was a bit too much to spend thousands on a dress that will be used for only a few hours, so when I started looking my goal was not to spend more than $300. I decided that in my wedding it is more important for me to put the emphasis on the people I work with throughout the event, and the dress, well, there are so many dresses, I’m sure i’ll find one that will work.
BPX_3985
2. Who made the dress? how long did it take to find/decide/choose?
– after some good hard summer hours, I almost gave up and then entered ‘Magic’, a store on Dizengof, that isn’t aimed specifically for wedding gowns, but that’s where I found mine- simple, not too white, chiffon, and comfortable. And after I decided to buy it, they didn’t mind sewing some lace I brought in.

BPX_3996
3. Price?
– all in all, with the lace and alterations, $200.

BPX_3999
4. Any regrets?
– no. I would regret spending more than I can afford 😉
BPX_4017

5. A wedding dress for you is?
– A dress for an event. The most important event in the world.
