Jane Eyre Wedding Inspiration from Ella Burman

Receiving inspiration shoots from different parts of the world allow us a glimpse into their style, their gorgeous landscapes and the talent that truly exists everywhere. This gorgeous Jane Eyre inspired bridal shoot, captured by Ella Burman, comes to us from the beautiful and Holy city of Jerusalem. We are just as fascinated with the beauty that surrounds this shoot as we are the beauty within it.  

From photographer Ella Burman: When I was 12 years old, I read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and loved it.I read it again, a few years later this time from an adult point of view and was fascinated by the characters and their relationships. As a film photographer I've decided to make a photo shoot, with an inspiration of something classic, pure and full of emotions.

Israel is a great location, but we do not have British style ancient castles or palaces. I thought I can create the magic in the Holy city of Jerusalem, in a very special historic suburb name Ein Karem.

Walking in the Allies led me to the Alegra hotel which was the perfect location. I was able to recruit a team of professionals and together we created this unique shoot, which inspired and uplifted us and also created new strong friendships and business cooperation.

I realized that for me to take pictures of people meant to draw out their feelings and show their beauty through their photos. Shooting families and children was only natural, and as a mother myself I found it easy to relate and understand the family dynamics on site. Now I also shoot portraits, couples, weddings and families.

I believe that choosing a specific photographer depends on various factors such as the style of photography and the interpersonal communication between the one behind the camera and the one in front of it.
