Shalom, I'm Dov Yarden

I'm a Professional Simcha Photographer, based in Jerusalem, Israel

Allow me to capture your precious moments for all eternity

Your Simcha is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, full of emotion, excitement, vibrancy and exhilaration. You have invested endless time and effort to plan every moment down to the finest detail. At the end of the day, after the crumbs are swept off the table, the glasses emptied and the guests have left, the only tangible remnant of your special day are priceless memories caught on camera.







Skillful photojournalistic images and a more contemporary approach to "traditional" photographs beautifully capture your personality and the true flavor of your special day. Dov’s photographic style is a combination of consultation, planning and photographic skill. You want and need a photographer with superb social skills to entice the very best from his subjects. Dov has all of the above, and more, and delivers impressive results every time.

The quality and service provided is of the highest level.


Bar & Bat Mitzvahs




What my clients say

"I found your services to be very creative and you were willing to do anything we asked. You were fast and very very efficient. Your work was done in a very timely matter and we were able to see the pictures almost the very next day. The pictures and albums were ready for us to take home before we left for the States. You could deal with complicated family pictures that involved at least 30 people. I thought you were one of the best photographers I have ever used."

Tova Weinberg , Pittsburgh PA

"The pictures just arrived. I can't tell you how absolutely amazing they are! You did a wonderful job at catching so many very touching moments. These will be our lasting memories. Thank you so much. ..They really are so beautiful. I'll be sure to give your name to our friends."

Lisa Gordon , Virginia Beach VA

"Our families shared a B'nai Mitzvah at the ancient synagogue in Katzrin in August 2004, and asked Dov to spend the day with us in order to photograph the ceremony, kiddush, lunch, hiking, wine tasting. and evening celebration in Safed. Dov drove all the way from Jerusalem early that morning, yet was the first to arrive. Not only did he take wonderful pictures and make two albums for each family that we treasure, but by the end of our long day together, we felt we had made a new jewel of a friend."

Reisa Mukamal, on behalf of the Mukamal-Arnold and Ruby families , Swarthmore, Pennsylvania PA

"I (very) highly recommend Dov Yarden. He photographed my friend's daughter's wedding and my sister's wedding. He is an excellent photographer and a pleasure to work with - both before, during (very calm and calming) and after the event - a real mentsch."
