There will always be a photo opportunity during any season you choose to hire a photographer for your trip to Tel Aviv, Israel. Let’s have a closer look into each season and see what they each individually have to offer.
Visiting Tel Aviv in Spring
Many would agree that Spring is by far the best time to visit Tel Aviv. If you are looking for your perfect photo shoot in Tel Aviv, you’ve traveled at the right time. During Spring the city comes back to life and most of its inhabitants return to the beach. You can hire a private photographer while you spend the morning walking down the quaint Rothschild Boulevard, where you can stop for a rich coffee and then head to the beach to truly soak up the sun. During Springtime, there’s the Jewish holiday, Passover, where you may find it difficult to find restaurants serving bread, however, since Tel Aviv is less religious than other parts of the country, you’ll have more options here than in any other city in Israel.
Whether you’re traveling alone, with a partner or with your family you can enjoy the many restaurants and cafes on the beach all season long. During the weekends you won’t have trouble finding an opportunity to party with the locals, most of the bars and restaurants take advantage of the warm weather and set tables outside so you can people-watch while you enjoy your delicious meal, drink or dessert. In Spring the Carmel market is booming with new seasonal fruits and vegetables, you may even discover a fruit you’ve never tried before. And of course, don’t forget to try some falafel and hummus during your trip! Check out the price for booking a Tel Aviv-based photographer HERE.

August can get particularly humid and crowded all hours of the day and night, however, you have the option of spending most of your time sunbathing and relaxing along the calm Mediterranean shore. If you’re planning a trip to Tel Aviv this Summer the best time to go is early June, before it gets too hot.
Many people choose to hire a personal photographer in Tel Aviv to capture the colorful Mediterranean sunset enriching the background of their trip. The beaches in Tel Aviv make for an especially romantic environment, especially in the evening hours when most of the locals are off getting ready for their long evenings. You and your partner can stroll, bike or roller skate along the path lining the beach and hire a professional Tel Aviv photographer to capture your fun moments in the sun, or while you two are enjoying the rich Mediterranean cuisine in Jaffa, Tel Aviv, which is buzzing with life all day and all evening long. Here you can find the best cocktails, coffees, and Israeli and Palestinian dishes full of flavor and colorful seasonal produce.
Jaffa is the oldest part of Tel Aviv and is an ancient port city with very narrow alleyways and streets. Many couples have chosen this destination to propose to their partners.

Visiting Tel Aviv in Autumn
Autumn in Tel Aviv is a very special time to visit this city. The entire season feels like Summer, except it is less crowded and humid. In Autumn, you may experience occasional rain showers, but there is certainly something romantic about the Mediterranean rain pouring down in the background of your photograph.

In the early Autumn months, you can still enjoy the calm warm Mediterranean sea and stroll down Bograshov Street where you can shop in the many boutiques and shops, or sit down in one of the many fantastic cafes and sip well-prepared coffee with the locals and tourists alike.
Visiting Tel Aviv in Winter
Tel Aviv’s Winter season is relatively mild and short. While it may not be beach weather during the Winter, there are still plenty of things to see and do. This may be the best season to find an affordable Tel Aviv photographer since most of them will be all booked up throughout the Summer and the tourist season lightens up during the Winter months. If you’re visiting during the Christmas season you can explore Jaffa, which is home to Christians, Jews and Muslims alike. Since the weather won’t be too cold, there is usually a Christmas parade with fireworks and then you can enjoy a mouthwatering meal indoors or outdoors in the many restaurant alleys within the ancient walls of Jaffa.
