Yael and Or are one of those couples we have so much to say about, it’s hard to know where to begin.
For starters, they were boyfriend-girlfriend in the fourth and fifth grades when they lived in Israel, drifted apart in their late teens, but then reconnected when they both ended up in the Bay Area. They have been back together for several years, and will get married this July in Israel.
We have photographed countless Jewish weddings, but never one in Israel. Yael and Or will also be bringing our own Vladimir to make their wedding film.
What will make the trip even more special is that Yael and Or are also very good friends of ours. We hang out together in San Francisco, spent the past New Year’s Eve together, and Yael came to Mexico for our wedding last fall. We’ve known Yael for so long because her family’s company, Digilabs Pro, has been our online gallery host since the beginning of Ben Chrisman Photography.
And as a side note for photographers, these photos were taken during one of our private photography workshops. If you’re interested, you can send us a note in the contact form.
