I am fortunate enough that in my 17 year career I got to capture two double weddings so far – What are the odds? Both double weddings were of two sisters getting married. The first double wedding I photographed about 10 years ago was a Scottish one, complete with grooms in kilts and two beautifully red haired sister brides.
The double wedding I shot this past September was of two sisters again – Galit who married Nick, and Yael who married Riley. It was a lovely backyard wedding, as the double couple tied the knot under a tree canopy in the park across the street from their home.
As oppose to the Scottish double wedding I photographed which was an intimate affair, this backyard double wedding had a large bridal party – which meant I needed a second shooter. I was so happy when Chris Gillyard agreed to take up that roll. As I told Galit in our pre-wedding phone consultation, they got lucky as Chris is a great professional photographer with as much experience as me if not more.
Having Chris on board, and Brittney my oh so wonderful assistant on my side– I knew I was surrounded by the best team, and could relax and enjoy capturing this wedding.
Posing them was a hoot, and one of the bridal party photos turned to be one of my favorite of all times. Isn’t it great?
Galit wanted a photo with her sister at the park, and Chris captured the three of us as I was composing the shot
The groom’s cake was shaped as a sandwich since both grooms love sandwiches
This double wedding had double the emotion and double the fun – and we captured it all! Happy Ever After to Galit & Nick, as well as Yael & Riley!
