The Bar Mitzvah party I photographed last Sunday rocked! — literally. Music for this Brooklyn Bar Mitzvah party was headlined by Rockmitzvah, which in addition to having a live band at your event, gets your kids (and even adults) involved in playing. And the Bar Mitzvah boy, Josh, his father and several of their friends are all great musicians. Both have their own bands as well. There was some serious classic rock being played and everyone was into it.
This gave the party a very unique feel, in addition to some of the traditional elements of such an event. Wonderful family to work with and we were even able to get some family portraits done in Prospect Park before the festivities.
Here are a handful of images from the event. Rock on!

Three years ago I photographed the older brother for his Bar Mitzvah. A few weeks ago, I captured his younger brother’s ceremony and event. The ceremony was at Temple Sha’aray Teflila on the Upper East Side, followed by a luncheon.
The kids party was held at 202 East later that evening nearby. Here are some images from the day’s events. Photographing a family’s second (or third) event is always nice for both the confidence they have in your abilities and the familiarity a photographer has with the family.
Here are some images fro the day:

Here are some images from the Solomon Bar Mitzvah in Riverdale I shot on Nov. 5. Jerry Laskin Enterprises brought me in again to shoot this party and did an awesome job DJ’ing the event and kept the celebration at peak levels throughout the night.
Bar Mitzvah season is here again. This past weekend I photographed a Manhattan Bar Mitzvah party at the Eventi Hotel on the West Side. Shot “Zap” photos for Jerry Laskin Enterprises. These photos taken at the party are displayed on two large flat panel monitors by the dance floor.
This type of photography is pretty free-form. You’re out on the dance floor and among the guests looking for some eye-catching candid shots to put up on the monitors throughout the event. Here are a handful of the over 400 images I took last Saturday night.
Just finished editing photos from a Bar Mitzvah I shot in Manhattan in March with the kid’s party at Dave & Buster’s in Times Square. Very pleasant family to work with and very accommodating–especially when I took them outside for a few shots in Times Square in the freezing weather! But everyone thought risking a little frostbite was worth it afterwards. Here are a few of shots from the event.
