I've had the pleasure of photographing three wedding alongside of Rabbi Shendelman officiating and I'm just such a fan! She infuses a sense of stillness, depth and meaning that is typically lost on most wedding days. In fact, if I'm ever lucky enough to be married again, I'm calling Rabbi Shendelman! She comes highly recommended!
