Ty is a great kid and like many youngsters he had to adapt a celebration to the times that we’re in. 2020 was a challenging year for everybody but you wouldn’t know it spending time with this dude for his bar mitzvah which took place several months ago! This was the second time around with a mitzvah for us with this family so let’s goooo!
Bar Mitzvah Celebration 2020 Style
First let’s take a couple peaks at the session that Ally did with Ty ahead of time for some cutouts to put in the backyard for the scaled back outdoor gathering they had planned. Ty is a multi-sport athlete so we covered all the bases (pun intended) on a great day with his mom Angela! Let’s start with football…
Now from gridiron to pitch…. soccer!
Pretty cool huh? Next we got him “throwing that speedball by ya” as Springsteen would say…
And last but not least Ty just being Ty…
Good lookin’ kid.
Fast forward to the big day and our event photographer Angela who captured these next few…
They had the service outside at the temple:
Love that pic with proud parents Angela and Danny looking on…!
And we’ll leave you with this one from the backyard with the dunk tank! No pandemic was going to steal ALL the fun!
HAHAHAHA!!! How great is that?
And there you have it – highlights of what STILL was a great celebration! We hope you enjoyed these!
On the Bimah
Brennan did a great job leading the service and was totally prepared!
A proud dad moment – father and son!
There’s nothing like one of those special and memorable family events – milestones by which we mark the stages of our lives and celebrate together like a Bar Mitzvah! We have been honored to be a part of many of these since we brought our event photographer Angela on board, and Evrett’s Bar Mitzvah is no exception! We have some highlights to share from this awesome celebration!
Evrett’s Awesome Celebration
Let’s start with the man of the hour:
A fine looking young man!
Now how about a nice family photo:
Always a great occasion to get some great family portraits with everyone happy and looking so nice!
Here we have a couple photos representing some of the Jewish traditions that go along with a Bar Mitzvah…
…and the party!!!
Think he was having fun? This is always a fun shot of the Bar Mitzvah boy up in the air, on top of the world during the traditional Hora dance!
And there you have it! We hope you enjoyed a few of the highlights of Evrett’s big day and the family’s awesome celebration!
What a legacy…
Let’s get to the Scrumptious Soirée!
Haha – think he was enjoying this?
That’s a great shot by Angela of Sammy!
What is hilarious about that shot is Sammy is recreating the big photo that was taken by Ally when Sammy was only 2!
We love that last shot – the way Angela framed Stacy and Jason with all the celebratory raised glasses is perfect! All in all it was a day and a night to remember at Sammy’s Scrumptious Soirée! We hope you enjoyed the highlights!
Adam’s Arcade was a fantastic event and this was our second go around with this family – you may remember older brother Jesse’s bar mitzvah celebration a little while back with our event photographer Angela capturing the images of these wonderful events each time! We’re coming up on a quarter century of knowing the Krugels and both families are done with the bar and bat mitzvahs of this generation – time sure flies. Meanwhile Adam is an awesome kid and a total character – his personality was stamped all over this party for sure…
Family shots at the Temple…
Let’s tell the story of the day in much the same way as last time around starting with the photos of the family at the temple and on the bimah itself…
The man of the hour!!!
….and the happy family:
If you can’t be silly with your brother who can you be silly with….?
So cool to have all of your grandparents with you celebrating your big day….
The tradition of being called to read from the Torah is so special…
Now let’s get to the bash – and it was such a cool theme. Adam’s arcade was just that – a legit arcade! Sure there was a DJ and a dance floor and fun decorations but there was actually an arcade in the back of the room complete with video games, and they also had a sweet retro logo which was available as a snapchat filter!
Let’s start with a shot of Adam with the ladies! Haha!
Here’s a great photo of the proud parents just beaming during the montage!
Think this kid was having fun on his big day……?
Meanwhile the kudos need to once again go to our incredible event photographer Angela – we love her. She’s gotta be good on multiple levels for us to put our name on her work and she makes us proud each and every time. Here’s a little over the shoulder behind the scenes shot of Angela at work at the party…
Here are the grandpas say the blessing over the challah!
We weren’t kidding about the arcade….. Super Mario!!!
Adam and his crew….
Surveying the whole scene from up high during the hora!!!
So there you have it! Another successful and fun event that we were so happy to be a part of!

We are proud to present to you some awesome photos from a special night at Club Sedona! This was another unique opportunity to watch our amazing event photographer Angela in action at a special occasion that we attended as guests. This is a very rewarding experience because we get to celebrate such a special day with friends on a personal note and we know we can have a part in making their day even more special with amazing photos from a professional standpoint.
Sedona becomes a bat mitzvah
We have known Sedona since she was tiny – almost her whole life and she is growing up to be a beautiful, nice, smart, and funny girl. It was a delight to be at her bat mitzvah, and as with most bat mitzvahs we photograph we’ll start at the Temple on the bimah with Sedona and her family.
Angela also captured a couple of really nice moments between Sedona and her siblings at the Temple:
So sweet right? Here’s a nice one of the bat mitzvah girl by herself:
On To Club Sedona…
The party was held at Emagine in Royal Oak which is a great venue for a party! Music, great food, dancing, candle lighting, and even a little bowling! What a blast. Let’s start with a photo of Sedona in front of one of the banners featuring a photo that Ally did at the studio…
So fun! Now let’s give you a feel for the party which Angela captured splendidly! Take a look:
A great time was had by all and Sedona was the star on her special day! Great girl, great family! Club Sedona was a huge success! We hope you enjoyed the highlights, and once again big credit to our event photographer Angela who captured the day!
March Madness usually means a basketball tournament, but in this case it meant Jesse’s Bar Mitzvah! Since we started photographing events with our fabulous event photographer Angela, Ally and I have attended a couple of them as guests which is a special treat for us on a couple levels. For starters it’s special to share in a celebration with our friends, but to watch Angela at her craft is very rewarding as well because it confirms for us why we are so proud to have her. We knew we had something special with her from the first day she walked into our studio when she was still a photography student several years ago. She’s grown into a true pro and we are excited to showcase some of her work here!
Let’s start on the bimah
We have known Jesse since he was born and I have known his parents Noah and Ellen for 23 years going back to our days at the University of Michigan. They are a great family and you can see the joy they had on the occasion of Jesse’s Bar Mitzvah! First Angela focused on the service part of the event at the Temple with photos of the family in the sanctuary:
Now let the “March Madness” begin!
The theme of the party was #JessesMarchMadness and people were having fun Instagramming with the hashtag which was displayed on the big screen, but when Jesse led members of the U of M marching band into the room and a rousing chorus of “The Victors” was played, well – things got kicked up a notch for sure. Jesse wore a GoPro to record the party and it was definitely a day to remember!
Hail to Jesse (and The Victors)!!!
We hope you enjoyed these highlights of Jesse’s March Madness – his Bar Mitzvah was truly a special day!
Many of you asked to see the pictures from our son’s Bar Mitzvah when they are available, so we are sharing a few photos from our special day! When photographers need pictures the question inevitably comes up “So who is photographing YOUR event? You aren’t doing it right?” Haha – that would be interesting – setting up each shot and then….setting the timer and getting back in the picture right? Of course not.
Well as you may know for some time we were not really in the event photography business. It’s not Ally’s specialty personally and we couldn’t work on weekend nights or we would never see our kids. Enter our wonderful event photographer Angela. She has done a fantastic job for Frameable Faces on events and at this point we couldn’t think of anyone better to trust with the task of photographing Tony’s Bar Mitzvah. She did an amazing job as we knew she would. We are so proud to showcase not only our son and our happiness on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah, but also Angela’s work as we have watched her grow over the years since the very first day she simply walked into our studio, still a student, and asked if we might be looking for another photographer.
First we started at Adat Shalom Synagogue during the week for pictures of the service on the day of our rehearsal:
“Tailgating With Tony”
Our party was at Oakland Yard Athletics in Waterford which is an amazing place to have a party and we also want to give shout outs in particular to Just Baked for their amazing cupcakes, Nick at Pine Lake Market for the amazing job catering, Co. 512 for the Adidas wear, Top That Table for the awesome decorations, and Josh and Cassie from Tronix Entertainment for getting the party started and keeping it going! Meanwhile back to the pictures and the awesome job Angela did capturing the scene and the mood! She was everywhere…
That mechanical bulldog is hilarious… Tony and his friends were able to play various sports throughout pretty much the whole party.
Next it was time for Tony to make his official entrance for the montage and candle lighting.
Time To Hora!
The hora is a traditional dance at Jewish occasions and it’s always a blast! Angela captured a bunch of great photos of the hora!
We love this view of the entire party where you can see a full dance floor doing the “wobble” while others were hitting golf balls, playing other sports, or just hanging out.
Lastly we love this photo of our happy family – especially the kids dancing together (and not fighting)!
So there you have it! Highlights from one of the best nights of our lives. We are happy to share them with you and we hope you enjoyed them!
