Wedding Day Photo Slideshow Melissa and Seth’s Chrysler Museum Wedding When you are looking around for a stunning venue for your Virginia wedding photography, you want to visit the Chrysler Museum of Art. It is simply stunning. It recently has gone through a total renovation and is simply breathtaking. As you can see from the night photo above, it doesn’t matter if it is day or night, it is still beautiful. Located in downtown Norfolk and nestled by the Hague River you will observe a stunning art museum that doubles as a breathtaking venue in the evening.   Traditional Jewish Wedding Ceremony When I think about Melissa and Seth, they make me smile. They seem like the perfect match. I love the way that they seem to balance each other. We had the absolute joy of being their wedding photographer. While we photographed their wedding I loved observing their love for each other. Melissa is fun and spontaneous, while Seth is well planned and somewhat calculated. Having these two types of personalities in a marriage is perfect because they complete each other. Here is an example in photos of their personality. Prior to their main wedding ceremony we photographed their private traditional Jewish ceremony. At this point in the ceremony the Rabi said something like this. “It’s tradition for the groom to remove the veil from the bride to ensure that he is indeed marrying the correct woman.”. This was a funny moment at their Ketubah ceremony as Melissa said, “Surprise! It’s me!”. Who couldn’t love these two and simply enjoy being their wedding photographer?

Chrysler Museum Wedding Photographer – – Melissa and Seth’s Jewish Wedding

Bride and Groom Night Photo

Chrysler Museum Wedding Photographer Are you getting married and looking for your wedding photographer? Contact us today for more details.   Melissa and Seth’s Jewish Wedding It was a beautiful weekend when we photographed Melissa and Seth’s wedding. It was a Sunday wedding and was the perfect way to finish out the weekend. As a wedding photographer we are always excited about what traditions will be celebrated. To be a well rounded wedding photographer, you must be familiar with all traditions. Whether it’s a Protestant wedding, a Jewish wedding, an Indian wedding, a Greek Orthodox wedding, it makes no difference to us. We are very familiar with all of them and the traditions that we will be photographing. For Melissa and Seth, it was a beautiful Jewish wedding. Their wedding was complete with a custom, beautiful Ketubah, a gorgeous Chuppah and breaking the glass. They had it all, and then some. Not only was the weather perfect for a wedding, the location was equally as great. They were married at the newly remodeled Chrysler Museum of Art. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Chrysler in a while you will love what they have done! We love to work with amazing couples and their families. We also love working with amazing vendors. The wedding day was under the direction of Antonia Christianson Events. As a wedding photographer we love working with great coordinators. They make our day flawless. Many other great vendors were in attendance helping the wedding go off with out a hitch. Fluttering Flowers, Cake Delights, Cuisine and Company, Stage Right Lighting, The Boardwalk Photobooth Company, Kristal Lane Beauty and the band, In Full. Melissa’s gown was from Wedding Atelier. We just loved her wedding gown with the beautiful bolero. (click on image to enlarge)   Wedding Preparation Photography For a wedding photographer, we feel it is important to have creative wedding photos. That is true for every phases of a wedding day. When we are taking photos during preparation, we are always looking for different angles and composition. When you add these elements it creates interest in your wedding photos. If you are a photographer and are stumped on creative composition, our wedding day guide may help. Groom Getting Ready (click on image to enlarge) Should I Have a First Look? Why a first look, you may ask.  As a wedding photographer, we have photographed hundreds of weddings. When one of our bride and groom’s have a “first look”, we find these results. 1. The bride and groom feel complete once they see each other. The wedding day, no matter how prepared you are, you are going to have butterflies. We find that when our bride and groom chose a first look, those butterflies are diminished immediately! 2. It’s the best that a bride is going to look on her wedding day! Dress perfect…check, make up perfect…check, and hair perfect….check, check. 3. It gives a bride and groom some down time to really enjoy each other on a hectic wedding day.   How Do We Photograph a First Look? 1. We find a beautiful location that is undisturbed by people, so it is truly a private meeting. 2. We have the groom facing away so that the bride can approach from behind. This allows a great opportunity for great photos. The expression on a groom’s face as he hears his loved one approaching is amazing. Here is a video that has a real first look at the Chrysler Museum. 3. We always respect the bride and groom’s privacy. 4. Real Emotion. Often it is hard for a groom to let down his guard in a ceremony where he is surrounded by all the guests. Men don’t often like to let down their guard in a group, but in private, it’s different. 5. During a first look we will have two of us photographing. One will be focusing on the bride’s reactions and one focused on the groom. This helps tells the whole story. 6. We capture a few other great photos during that time. After the first look has happened, we get to spend a little extra time capturing additional great pictures.   Melissa and Seth’s First Look I think that you will agree, Melissa can not take a bad photo. She is simply stunning! Bride and Groom (click on image to enlarge)    Jewish Wedding Ceremony Photos Melissa and Seth’s wedding ceremony took place in the stunning Mary’s Garden. Here are a few of our favorite wedding ceremony pictures. Bride’s Procession into Ceremony with Parent’s Well Wishes Prayer Shawl The Marriage Ring If you’d like to learn more about Jewish Wedding traditions, here is one article.   Creative Bridal Party Pictures When you are a wedding photographer you are always trying to be creative when it come to the bridal party photos. At Melissa and Seth’s wedding, we hardly had to think. These crazy masks have a sentimental meaning behind them. If you see Melissa and Seth, you will have to ask them the story! Running from the Rubber Duck This monstrous size is 10x11x13 meters. Though I am not good at converting metrics, trust my it’s huge! This traveling sculpture by Florentijn Hofman has and is literally traveling the world. Though Melissa and Seth were not super excited about it being on location at their wedding, we still had fun with it!   We would love to be your wedding photographer!

Chrysler Museum Wedding Are you getting married at the Chrysler Museum? Are you looking for a wedding photographer? Contact us today for more information.     Katie and Josh Meet Katie and Josh. We were so honored that they chose us to be their wedding photographer. My running joke is that we only photographed beautiful people. You can see why that statement is true. Katie was breathtaking in her gorgeous wedding gown from Ava Laurenne Bride. Josh, well, he wasn’t so bad either. He was very handsome in his wedding attire. The wedding day was amazing partly because it was under the direction of Carolyn at Signature Weddings. The floral design was by the one and only Daevids.Their cake artist was Incredible Edibles Bakery. There were many other amazing vendors that made their wedding day dreams come true. Some of them were Stage Right Lighting, Make Up by Kim Porter, The Boardwalk Photobooth Company and Cuisine and Company. Beautiful Bride (click on image to enlarge) The Wedding Ceremony Wedding ceremony’s at the Chrysler Museum are always beautiful to photograph. The museum is beautiful and the addition of the orchid wall adds an amazing background to any celebration. (click on image to enlarge) The Invasion of the Duck Well, in case you haven’t heard, there was an invasion of a duck…a large rubber duck. The Chrysler Museum hosted the Rubber Duck sculpture during the busy Memorial Day weekend. This duck was designed by Florentjin Hofman. It is traveling art that is literally seeing the world. It has been in Holland, France, Brazil, Australia, China and Azerbaijan. It has been a very busy duck! Though Katie was not excited about the duck, she embraced him in the end. Private Pictures with the Bride and Groom I can tell you right now, that this is my favorite photo time of the entire wedding day. Yes, we love to cover the ceremony.

We love to create beautiful portraits of their once in a lifetime event. (click on image to enlarge) Wedding Reception Photography A wedding reception is an exciting time.
