  • About Shira

    I am an international photographer based in New York, an award-winning member of the prestigious Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) , ISPWP, and a member of the Best of Wedding Photography Association. My work has been published and acclaimed internationally, appearing in Brides Magazine, Anhelo (Japan), The Knot, and The Knot China. I have also been featured on many industry-leading blogs such as Grace Ormonde, Style Me Pretty, WellWed, Essence, Bride's Cafe, Brooklyn BrideOneWedMerci NY and more. Originally from Israel, I have had the pleasure of photographing many American, French, Yemenite, Ethiopian, Korean, Indian and Moroccan weddings and events. I have photographed in New York's most legendary spots like the Waldorf-Astoria, The Plaza, The Pierre, Gotham Hall, the Hamptons, and more. Through my photojournalistic style, I aim to capture the spontaneity, joy, emotion and ambiance of the important day with photos that present an unfolding story. My incredible clients have taken me all over the world to photography their weddings; including India, Canada, the Caribbean, etc. I am free to travel throughout the US and internationally, and am available for a wide variety of events. Feel free to look at my website.

    Also, here are a few testimonials from some of my wonderful clients.

  • My Blog

    Welcome to my blog!   This blog showcases not only my work from many of the beautiful weddings I am privileged to photograph, but also reveals glimpses of my personality.    Here is an opportunity to share some great moments  as well as give clients,  guests and friends the chance to comment. I also hope prospective clients will be able to not only explore my photography and style, but will also find inspiring ideas, recommendations , and tips for their own wedding planning.   I myself got married five years ago and I remember how overwhelming it all was- especially picking the right photographer!  :-)

I am always thrilled to photograph a wedding at the Metropolitan Club. One of the privileges of being a wedding photographer is actually the chance to shoot in some of New York’s magnificent buildings, and the Met Club, as Stanford White’s most sumptuous and lavish work, ranks high on my list of architectural favorites. Another great love of mine are Indian weddings with their sumptuous colors and traditional clothing, so you can imagine I was especially excited at the prospect of their combination.

Of course, grand settings and gorgeous outfits alone do not make the elements of a beautiful wedding. Fundamentally, I am drawn to capture people in love and Katie and Sunil were truly delightful and their family and friends overflowing with joy and emotion. There was just some ineffable delight in the air that made this wedding particularly inspirational and memorable and that I am sure will sustain a very happy marriage long into the future.
