The day of the mitzvah usually starts with a trip to the local synagogue where the young man or woman is given an opportunity to read the Torah for the first time. We are well experienced with synagogue photography and understand the nuances and holiness of the ceremony. We are often able to coordinate with the rabbi to arrange for silent shooting (completely flash-less and silent photography) during the actual ceremony. Often times we can arrange a pre-ceremony photo-shoot to get some images with the torah, tefillin, or the haftarah. We can also unobtrusively capture the “showering of candles” that often occurs after the ceremony.
Mini Photo Shoot
At some point during the day we will take the birthday boy/girl out for a mini session to capture some portraits that communicate his/her essence. This can be as simple as a few shots at the synagogue, or can include multiple outfits and locations. Sometimes the birthday boy or girl will want to travel to a meaningful location nearby such as a school, park, or other venue.
While the guest of honor has mini shoot, an assistant photographer can be on hand to capture all the decor, party favors, cake, lighting, and other festive items specially made for the big day. We make sure to document all the special touches that go into making the day great.
