Ketubah signings are some of my favorite moments to capture. I love how intimate and personal they are, and how family history is honored.
This Ketubah singing takes place at the Moorings, a historic rental property on Commercial Street in Wellfleet, MA. It's a huge white house, right on the water. Every time I go there I'm thankful for the property because it has great light and so many great opportunities for photographs. The porch on the back is where the signing took place. The porch has amazing light thanks to wrap-around windows, but alas there is not enough room for all of the family members AND a photographer.
So I decided to get a little creative with this shot. The kitchen has a window, with no screen to deal with, that looks out to the porch. I positioned myself so the couple was framed in the window. Even through a couple of family members were cut off from this angle (I got them in lots of other images) I was very happy with the resulting image.
THEN it happened. The mom whistled, and the bride and groom gave a blow-it-up fist bump that was totally them, totally adorable, and totally made the shot.
Be yourself on your wedding day. Do all the little things you do when you are together in private. I want to capture THOSE moments. This image is so sweet because of the bride and grooms personal, spontaneous, touch.
