Sherwood Country Club Orthodox Jewish Wedding | Brian + Naomi
We had a great time photographing Brian and Naomi’s wedding at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. This was a beautiful traditional Jewish Orthodox wedding complete with the Tish and Bedeken ceremony. Naomi has a way of looking through the camera lens that is really amazing. She can definitely strike a pose. I’ve never seen a couple change into running shoes for the first dance before and I kept waiting for them to bust out into the “running man”.
Two things I really love about Jewish weddings. One, the Jewish culture really knows how to party. I’ve never been to a “boring” Jewish wedding! And two, the bride and groom always see one another before the ceremony to sign the Ketuba and marriage license. So because of this, we can usually meet a couple hours before the ceremony and have lots of photo time for the getting ready pictures, first look and family pictures before the ceremony. We always prefer this since the more time we have on wedding day for pictures, the better. We loved working with Peggy from Events Specialist. She ensured the day ran smoothly and it really did.
