Tamara & Max | Jewish Engagement Party on Sydney’s North Shore
I have photographed many events but this was my first Jewish engagement party. It was an absolute delight photographing Tamara and Max’s engagement party in Sydney amidst their family and friends. The party took place in the backyard of Tamara’s mum’s home. The garden looked stunning and there were flower petals and tea lights floating in the swimming pool. Around 70 guests streamed in as the sun began to set.
Tamara is from Sydney and she met her American Fiancé Max in the states when she worked there. The couple got engaged in August this year and threw their beautiful engagement party on a trip home to Australia. It was also an opportunity for all the family to meet Max.
I captured some stunning shots of Tamara and Max in the garden. Shots were a mix of them smiling at each other with love in their eyes, while others were of them laughing together. These images show off how happy they were to celebrate this milestone occasion. I also got great family photographs as well including one of three generations – Tamara, her mum and her grandmother. These are definitely images they will look back on for years to come.
A delicious buffet was catered for the guests; with a bar area serving cool cocktails and wine. Everyone looked happy and relaxed. There was a wonderful buzz in the air. Speeches were made by the bride’s father and fiancé, both of which were well received by the joyous crowd. After the speeches, the Rabi blessed the new couple and their engagement cake was served.
I loved shooting their engagement festivities and am grateful to have been a part of their night. Please enjoy looking at these engagement party photos.
