After the final “Mazel Tov” is heard and the “Toda’ot” are written, the memories remain. Andrew has been there before and knows how to capture the love, family, and fun of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
Photography can capture the special nature of the day and the joy of family. Andrew provides sessions prior to the service and during the celebration afterward to capture the full spirit of this joyous time. Photography can be scheduled for many varied opportunities, though the rules of the Temple or Synagogue must be adhered to.
Each Synagogue or Temple has its own rules, so please consult them for the most current rules. In Greensboro, Temple Emanuel does not permit photography during services. Beth David Synagogue does not permit photography on the property during services or afterward.
Images from the sanctuary are generally scheduled on the Thursday prior to the Simcha, but can be scheduled on any date that fits your schedule. The time prior to the evening party can be used to take photographs of the additional family that may have come from out of town.
Time can also be scheduled for a special photoshoot a month or two prior to capture who the young man or woman has become. Images are created using themes that are important to their life: sports, hobbies, or the theme of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
