Rabih started in photography around 2013 and has tried many different avenues, but wedding photography is what he prefers. This is where he finds true, unfiltered moments filled with emotion. As a photographer, Rabih’s says “I’m just trying to tell genuine stories through my lens on one of the most memorable day of their lives.”
“Being selected once more as part of the team is a great privilege, especially when it is amongst amazing photographers across the country.”
The bride here looks majestic as it represents the beauty and the “center of attention”. Elegance meets simplicity.
As many Jewish traditions, the Hora is almost a must at these parties. So I always have to be prepared for the craziness of the party, but I knew in advance that this one would be special. I had to place myself in the proper location, while wearing proper shoes!
With the long alley centering the couple around the fireworks, it was obvious that I had to shoot this image from afar, so I do not obstruct the moment. I only had a few seconds since the fireworks were only active for that long and needed to get my settings & framing correctly. As a photojournalistic moment, I couldn’t control their emotions or knew that the groom was going to lift her! It was perfect!
Getting ready is one of the most nerve-racking events of a wedding day. We are all trying to impress our better half and, for this bride, it was no different. After finishing her hair & make-up, the bride was picking up her recently steamed dress & getting ready for the big reveal. I knew this moment would come since the dressed was placed by the stairs and we made sure to be positioned carefully to capture that moment.
