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!
