Intimate Jewish Wedding Photography

“A wedding to remember – and photographer!

Menucha is one of a kind, not just in her work but who she is. We wanted a wedding photographer, but were looking for something different than what usually finds today. We wished the moment to be captured, as if you were there seeing it all with your own eye. Raw, unedited; human. Thank G-d, I knew Menucha already and I knew she had the soul we were looking for. It was so easy to work with Menucha. The whole booking experience was made simple, which was important with so much else to plan for in that time. We never needed to check in on/overanalyze her work. She was on time, focused on the work, and knew what she was doing. For our portraits, she made the experience very natural. I normally would be very uncomfortable posing in from of someone else, and would prefer candid’s. But Menucha created quite a wonderful, memorable time & space for my husband and I. Then, just a short time later we received multiple sets of the photos as they came in. It was like unwrapping more joy with every upload. We were well communicated with and shared with throughout the process. She didn’t send us thousands of photos to have to go through ourselves, but hundreds of hand-picked goodies we get to eat the fruits from. From the unedited, to the black-and-whites, to the films, we were taken aback to continuously relive the experience. Menucha made it such a pleasure to work with. And we got exactly what we wanted. Pure, real photos; light and dark, capturing of the essence.”

Deena and Josh’s 60th Anniversary

“I hired Menucha to photograph my parent’s 60th anniversary. The photos were not only beautiful but she also interacted beautifully with all of my family. Four generations in one place is never easy but she managed it all effortlessly – from the oldest to the youngest! And of course the pictures came out beautifully. Highly recommend!”
