A Sweet Time Was Had By All At Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah!

It’s always a great honor to be trusted with the responsibility of taking the photos of an important event – a milestone in the life of a family and a bat mitzvah is certainly one that fits that description!  In this case we are presenting a few highlights from Dylan’s recent bat mitzvah with the party theme of “Dylan’s Candy Bat Mitzvah” with the photos by our wonderful event photographer Angela!

A Sweet Time for Dylan

We actually remember when Dylan was born and we have known her parents Danny and Angela (don’t get confused – yes our event photographer and the bat mitzvah’s mom’s names are both Angela) for well before that, so these photos are really neat to have on our blog!  Let’s start with the star – Dylan!

Candy Bat Mitzvah

The beautiful bat mitzvah girl!

We are also big fans of this photo which Angela is able to capture at each and every mitzvah – the proud parents looking on…

And how about a slightly-silly-but-spot-on family portrait….?  You know they were having fun.

Let’s head to the party shall we?  Here’s a great photo from the candle lighting…

…and here’s Dylan with her crew:

We’ll end it up on the traditional hora dance as the girl of the hour gets lifted up above the crowd!

And there you have it!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of Dylan’s celebration!

Sammy The Future Chef Had A Scrumptious Soirée For His Bar Mitzvah!

Sammy is a future chef in the making – the dude can create some serious culinary concoctions and he knows quality when he tastes it so you know if he has any say at all in the menu at his bar mitzvah that it’s gonna be gooooooood – a scrumptious soirée!  And in this case the food didn’t disappoint!  We know because we were there – as guests, because Sammy is our nephew!  Ally did indeed take a few photos at the weekday service at Adat Shalom Synagogue which we’ll share here, but the bulk of these highlights come from the event and is the work of our fantastic event photographer Angela!  Let’s start with a few photos from the small chapel earlier in the week at shul.
 

What a legacy…

Sammy’s great grandfather was the cantor at Adat Shalom for many years so it was very special for Sammy to carry on that tradition as the first of his generation within that family to become a Bar Mitzvah.  Here are a few highlights as Sammy leads the service and does the name proud:

Let’s get to the Scrumptious Soirée!

The party was held at the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market – a great wide open space for a bash!  The food was off the charts with Asian, Mexican, and Israeli stations for food and everyone had a blast – I know we did!  Sammy had a ton of fun on his big day for sure.

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!

Game On! It’s Time For A Bar Mitzvah Celebration At Adam’s Arcade!

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…

Adam's Arcade
The man of the hour!!!

….and the happy family:

Adam's Arcade

If you can’t be silly with your brother who can you be silly with….?

Adam's Arcade

So cool to have all of your grandparents with you celebrating your big day….

Adam's Arcade

The tradition of being called to read from the Torah is so special…

Adam’s Arcade!

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!

Adam's Arcade

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…

Adam's Arcade

Here are the grandpas say the blessing over the challah!

We weren’t kidding about the arcade….. Super Mario!!!

So there you have it!  Another successful and fun event that we were so happy to be a part of!

Kickin’ It With Riley At Her Bat Mitzvah!

We have known Riley since she was born – she’s actually my Goddaughter, so this was a special day for us.  It was also special to have our amazing event photographer Angela there to capture the event – it gives us a warm and fuzzy feeling to have Angela there to ensure that our friends and family will have memorable photos from the event the way they deserve.

We’ll start with the traditional photos of Riley at the bimah and with her family.

Proud moments…

Riley

A special moment for a special girl at the Torah!

Needless to say we’re a little biased but we love the way our Angela (we love to joke and call her “Nikon Girl” since she rocks a Nikon and Ally is Canon all the way) captures these moments and the composition of her photos!  She’s awesome.

Next let’s bring in some photos with Riley and the fam… First with proud parents Todd and Monique gazing at her from afar!  You’ve seen this type of photo on this blog before – it’s one of our favorites every time.

Riley

A classic black and white of Daddy’s girl….

And here’s the proud family with little brother Brennan and little sister Sage!

We think this girl was enjoying herself…

Kickin’ It With Riley!

Next we’ll move on to the party!  First we have the bat mitzvah girl getting ready for the bash… love these little details looking over Monique’s shoulder with Riley’s reflection in the mirror…

Riley

Ready to celebrate!

Riley

The party was awesome and “Kickin’ It With Riley” was the theme since she is a soccer player, and I even captured a shot with my iPhone behind the scenes of Angela at work!

We love Angela! Here’s a quick selfie…

Doug with Angela

And here is a fantastic photo we’ll leave you with as Riley’s friends and family lift her up to celebrate her as she surveys the room during the traditional hora dance!

Riley

An awesome way to close out the highlights of an an awesome day!  We hope you enjoyed these photos of Riley’s special event!
