My passion is taking photos, and I take a camera with me wherever I go.
I got my first camera at the age of 13 for my BAR-MITZVAH. It was a simple, fully automated film camera. I enjoyed taking photos at all the field trips with my high school. Three years ago I began taking photos at parties in night clubs for a large web site. That is when I knew I wanted to do this for a living. My experience in night club photography gave me the ability to capture candid photos, from unique angles and views.
I have been doing wedding photography, portrait photography, model photography, Bat / Bar-Mitzvah's, and event photography since 2004. My photojournalistic style provides great candid shots as well as traditional shots. I also capture the small details of your wedding day like your dress, bouquet, cake, tie, location and more.
My GOAL is to provide you with the best photos for your portfolio.

Wedding photography in San Francisco Bay Area by Tsafrir Melamed
When choosing a wedding photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area, you're not just buying a service - you're investing in your memories. You envision your wedding day as a unique and wonderful moment in time. So, you want to make sure that your photographer captures it the same way you imagine it.
There are several different styles of wedding photography: traditional, photojournalistic, and illustrative. Each style has its own benefits and drawbacks.
The traditional wedding photography style covers the event with little artistic perspective. It is usually comprised of many “strict” posed photos, which always look the same. Traditional photographers tend to work based on a list of shots, and they tend to orchestrate the bridal party to pose for the photos.
The photojournalistic wedding photography style captures moments when they occur. The photojournalistic photographer is always “on the watch” for special moments, making sure to capture them in real time. Usually there will be no “list” of pre-planned photos; instead, you will have a story-like documentary of your wedding day.
The illustrative approach to wedding photography incorporates the photographer’s artistic view point. With this style the photographer directs his subjects to a location that has good lighting and background in order to create a better shot. Then the subjects are asked to “be themselves,” and the photographer captures more comfortable looking photographs. Unlike the traditional approach, the photos in the illustrative style tend to look much more natural.
