Photography has been my passion since I was just a kid.
Unconsciously, I feel the world around us as different elements coming together to create the reality. My love of the art of photography is expressed in every frame I take of people, wildlife and nature.
Over the years, I have gained experience in all kinds of photography from the film era (when I had to pick and choose which photos to print from negatives, in order to save costs...) and into the digital era.
My work has received awards and international recognition in various media and has appeared in galleries and exhibitions. But, most importantly to me, it has been cherished by individuals to whom my photography has touched and made a difference. I hope you enjoy my art now and in the future.

* "Yaron has a wonderful "eye". He has a knack for capturing beautiful and special moments. His candids are outstanding and he captures a great image of everyone in his portraits (even those of us who are less photogenic). B"H, I hope to book him for future simchas. Thank you Yaron."

* "Best photographer ever!! We had him for our daughters engagement in our house…he came on time and stayed as long as we needed him for. And the best part was he sent us the most beautiful pictures edited pictures as he finished editing them. They were just beautiful! Can’t wait to have a reason to work with him again:-)."
- Chana K.
* "My fiancee and I worked with Yaron for our proposal shoot. He was very good at playing along ensuring my fiancee believed he was just there to do a family shoot. From the get go, Yaron was professional, easy to work with, and responsive. He brings a relaxed atmosphere to photo sessions that can sometimes be stressful. His photography style captures candid moments and he did an amazing job at framing things with the right background. His pricing is reasonable and includes all digital edited copies of the photos. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Yaron to friends and family."

We knew Yaron has incredible talent, just by looking at his website and his professionalism was impeccable. He knew the ins-and-outs of weddings and anticipated all the scheduling. He guided us in a way that was both gentle and enthusiastic. Oh and it was a lot of fun! And just as we imagined, the photos turned out to be stellar."

- Carol E.
* "Yaron is a photographic mastermind.
A photographer doesn't amass a collection of stunning images like Yaron has unless he sees those fantastic possibilities in his mind -- and doesn't rest until he has them.
He made our family photo shoot look as exciting as any of the grizzly bear families or tigers in the wild that he's photographed in his travels.
I've worked with a lot of photographers professionally, and I consider Yaron top-drawer. I feel lucky we were able to get him for our family."
- Zev S.
* "It was a pleasure to work with Yaron. He took photos for my daughters Bat Mitzvah and I couldn’t be happier!. He took so many unique and fantastic photos and was available to edit each one as we asked to meet our needs (like removing a water bottle from my hand!). I would highly recommend Yaron for any of your photography needs!"

* "Yaron was a breath of fresh air. He was unlike other photographers in that his passion and love for his craft was more important to him than business. He took time to get to know me and my fiancee, guided us patiently with all we needed to know and catered to our needs. Weddings, in general, can be stressful to plan. Yaron was one of the best decisions we made. Beautiful pictures and would highly recommend. Thank you,Yaron!"

We would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer in the future."

You've captured some unbelievable shots and we really appreciate it. We always said that hiring a good photographer is one of the most important things since this will stay with us forever. We certainly made the right choice. Thank you so much for all the great work !"
- Mayer and Inbal.
* "My son's bar mitzvah was a lovely event. However, Yaron's stunning, artistic photos have rendered our memories of this special day in exquisite detail, and allowed us to experience aspects we would not have been privy to. He managed to capture the RELATIONSHIPS and interpersonal dynamics between the family members and guests with a journalistic eye that I have never encountered before when looking at photos from special events, both ours and others'. Even the posed photos of our family have something special about them that makes them more beautiful than typical posed photos. I don't know what the secret sauce is, but if you have an upcoming special event and would like to hire a photographer, you must hire Yaron Eini as he will capture elements that no one else will."
* "Just a quick note to let you know how much I appreciated your talent in capturing special moments. I am so incredibly grateful for the beautiful photos you took of myself and my aging father when we were headed to a friends wedding. I haven’t seen my dad dressed up in years and I know we will cherish these photos for many years to come. Whenever anyone I know needs a photographer always insist they contact you. Thank you again for the beautiful memories."
* "Yaron was our wedding photographer, undoubtedly one of the best choices we made. Thanks so much for the warm and caring attitude and the great pictures! We really enjoyed working with you and highly recommend you to anyone who has an event or just wants to have really beautiful photos."
* "Thank you very much for your amazing and professional photography at our wedding. We love your photos very much - every picture is a real story! Thank you so much for your dedication, for listening, caring, your professionalism and paying attention to the smallest details. We really enjoyed working with you and highly recommend you! Thanks !"
* "I was looking through my photos recently and I am absolutely amazed by your work, Yaron. You captured every single moment. Everything that I remember about our wedding is now in my photo book for memories. Each picture tells a story. I'm so much more in your style (ie photos that convey real human emotion) than I am in the cheesy "portrait" style (ie "Say Cheese!"), Which is why I'm so happy you were there to capture our Simcha. Thank you, Yaron!"
* "I met Yaron as a photographer at my sister's wedding about seven years ago. When my wedding day came, it was clear to me that Yaron would be the photographer for us and in a few moments of conversation between him and my fiancé - it was understandable too. Throughout the day, Yaron was charming and attentive, full of humour and caring. Throughout the wedding day, he was by our side, capturing the most special moments, with a keen eye and stunning frames and exciting moments full of love. All the meetings before and after the wedding were pleasant. Yaron is an extremely talented photographer at an international level and a sensitive and humane person :) Highly recommended for any exciting and joyful event you have."
* "Yaron's images are so precise, special and exciting that it is obvious to every eye that this is a smart and talented photographer. But what you can't see in the pictures is the adorable person behind the camera - having so much patience, putting in extra effort and such professionalism. Yaron was the photographer at our wedding and invested above and beyond. He made sure we were on schedule without pressuring us, managed to take pictures every moment without being noticeable, calmed down the bride and made the shy groom laugh, was attentive to all our requests and did not rest for a moment. Both in our conversations with Yaron before the wedding and during the wedding itself - we felt that it really mattered to him that we would be satisfied and happy. Thanks Yaron for the talent, the sharp eye and especially the big heart :-)"
* "Anyone who thinks that the guy is only talented person doesn't know how much creativity and love for the profession he has. Last January Yaron photographed our wedding day, we had lots of fun with him and the photos turned out to be stunning :)) Thank you Yaron."
* "Yaron makes the stressful day a fun day. The most talented photographer I ever ever known. I am so glad he photographed our wedding."
"Many thanks to Yaron for doing an amazing job photographing me. Wonderful professional".

* "Well done Yaron. Thanks for the beautiful photographs you took at our Brith event.
We really enjoyed working with you. Highly recommend to everyone!"
* "Yaron is not just a photographer, who knows how to see in an inhuman dimension, but is also the most charming, sensitive and empathetic man I could have chosen to be with us during the most important day of our life."
* "Yaron was the photographer at our wedding at the end of April 2014. It's hard to say much in addition to the results (after all, a picture is worth a thousand words, and we have more than thousand amazing pictures ...). Yaron accompanied us from the morning, beyond the professional and creative photography, he made sure every moment we drank, ate, enjoyed ... and knew how to capture the right people in the right moments. He was on our side as one of our family. Highly recommend without a shadow of a doubt :)"
* Yaron foi o fotógrafo do nosso casamento. As fotos mais maravilhosas que já vi. Virou nosso amigo pq além de um excelente profissional, é uma excelente pessoa. Quando nossa primeira filha nasceu nos ligou e veio na nossa casa nos fotografar. Assim, presente. E que presente! As fotos sensacionais!
Mais do que recomendamos. É obrigatório em todo evento.

* "ירון צלם מוכשר באופן יוצא דופן! יודע לגרום למי שלא חש בנוח מול העדשה להשתחרר ולהרגיש הכי טבעי ונינוח. ירון צילם בחתונה הכפרית שלנו תמונות מהממות ומושקעות, בין אם זה בעריכה הסופית או אם זה בצילום האנשים הנמצאים באירוע עצמו, יודע לרדת לפרטים הכי קטנים ולהיות מוכן מראש לכל סיטואציה, דבר אשר מקל על כלה ביום חתונתה. שווה את המחיר וממליצה באהבה רבה!

- אורן וטלי
* "לירון היקר היתה משימה לא פשוטה : להנציח את המתיקות של בני שנתיים שלא ממש רצו "לחבק את המצלמה". הוא עמד בה בהצלחה והתוצאה היא תמונות קיר מהממות של תאומים בעלי תלתלי זהב שלא משאירים אותך אדישים. תודה רבה על הסבלנות, המקצועיות והאהבה לצילום שמורגשת בכל מפגש. מומלץ בחום."
