JEWISH WEDDING IN PARIS – PHOTOGRAPHY BY JANIS RATNIEKS
Jewish wedding in Paris
Hello everyone! It’s a beautiful day today so I think this is a good time to share another beautiful wedding I’ve done. Yes, I know it’s last year but I still have some more up my sleeve! The new year has started and I’ve already shot 2 weddings in the first week, but I have to share all of my last year’s work! So – meet Clare and Jean-Charles at their beautiful jewish wedding in Paris, France.
You might ask what’s Marlene Dietrich doing in the first photo – well this happens to be Marlene’s suite in Hotel Lancaster in Paris – that’s the place where girls got ready (after having wedding breakfast in Hotel Bristol in Paris). Nice, calm atmosphere with lot’s of green tea. I like the candid shots I did there – you don’t feel my presence there at all. After that we proceeded to a Jewish wedding ceremony in Le Pre Catelan – as it was an autumn wedding it got dark quite early – so you can see all of the colourful lights highlighting the venue.
This wedding was special, the couple had booked another photographer to do all the formal shots, so I had all my time sneaking around and purely documenting the big day. I’ve talked enough, let the photos tell the rest! Enjoy.

The tea I was telling about.
The hair dresser was a bit stressed, a quiet time for me!
Love this one – two Divas, for one work still in progress.

Beautiful light coming from all the windows.
Like this portrait of Clare and the dress – she looks confident, she’ll look stunning in it.

Cool lens blur – I used Nikkor 85mm 1,4G for this on the Nikon D3s body.
French are always very cheerful as wedding guests.
