hosson portrait through the ketuba

It has become a tradition amongst many traditional jewish families to display their ketuba (a Jewish wedding document) prominently in the home of the hosson and Kallah (bride and room) as a proof of marriage. A Jewish wedding document servers as a security for the bride in ensuring the groom hold true to his marital obligations. Having clients who appreciate a creative and yet documentary style of photography for their wedding day, I thought of this shot as I think it documents the groom with his Ketuba just perfectly. The groom in this shot was reciting Tehilim (psalms) before his big moment, I had only one shot to capture him in a way that is not too whimsical or too stern. Filename: _DSC3070-Edit.jpg.
