I’ve been photographing Bar Mitzvahs for over 20 years. I appreciate and am moved to tears by the emotion, silliness and importance of every single one of these special occasions.
3 Keys that Will Help Make your Bar/Bat Mitzvah Photographs Exceptional
#1 How to Choose the Right Photographer
Before you hire anyone to photograph your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah, make sure you visit the photographer at their studio. Get a sense of their professionalism, artistic sensibility, and creative ability…you want the assurance that you are in experienced hands and that the photographer has worked with energetic adolescents. The photographs and testimonials on this page are from families we have had the pleasure of working with.
“I wanted a photographer who would be unobtrusive and whose style matched the easy going style which I envisioned. I found these attributes with Phil Cantor Photography. You did an amazing job, capturing each important aspect of the celebration from beginning to end. I would not only recommend you very highly, but would use you again for any other major celebration in the future.”
#2 How I Tell the Story of Your Bar Mitzvah
An artistic and creative photographer can combine images that document the story of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah day in an innovative and artistic way. My candid, photojournalistic style is marked by strong composition and an artful eye. I work to capture the essence of an event while remaining unobtrusive. We’re not just making beautiful photographs, we’re capturing beautiful memories of your child’s transition to adulthood.
“Most of us have a difficult time remembering the salient and poignant moments of any event, especially years later. It is only the photographs that we have that jog our memory and bring smiles to our faces. When my son became a Bar Mitzvah, I asked that you capture those special moments. You came through with flying colors and forever memorialized that day through an album that was done with professionalism and creativity.”
