Orthodox Jewish Wedding Photographer Beverly Hilton

I love shooting weddings across all cultures, and have had the privilege to shoot numerous Orthodox Jewish weddings in and around Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. I actually live right in the heart of the second largest Orthodox population in the United States (with the largest being in New York), and as such, have always had a great affection for the Orthodox Jewish community. I have also had great affection for the black hats that the men don starting after their bar mitzvah. For this portrait, which was taken against a simple wall in a hallway at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, I asked the groom to bow his head down until the hat just covered his face. I then asked him to hold his lapels, taking care to position his hands symmetrically. The end result got a wildly positive reaction when I first posted this photograph on a professional photography forum that I was a member of. Interestingly, I have tried to recreate this photograph at several other Orthodox Jewish weddings, but it's never worked out quite as well as this one.
