Nestldown Jewish Wedding Photographer | Orly & Zack

This lush, romantic Jewish wedding at the rustic Nestldown retreat in Los Gatos, California was magical and touching all at once. Orly and Zack came to me with a vision to blend both of their Jewish and Mexican cultures, which led us to hold their engagement photography session in the Mission District of San Francisco, an area rich in Mexican influences, and a wedding full of traditional elements dear to Orly and Zack.

The wide, natural steps set amongst tall redwoods leading down to the ceremony space made for a breathtaking wedding. It made everything feel majestic and rustic at the same time, with the trees seeming to gather around all of Orly and Zack’s loved ones to join in their fairy tale union.

I am so proud that this was a featured wedding on Style Me Pretty!
