Covering Sacramento, Placer County and Northern California

Photo above: Bat Mitzvah ceremony photographed using existing light (no flash). We took this photo from the temple's rear using a telephoto lens.

We photograph Bat Mitzvahs and Bar Mitzvahs almost exactly the same as we photograph weddings.

There are individual portraits of the special person; family group photos; ceremony photos; and reception photos.

Receptions are fun affairs that may include dancing, cake candle lighting, and brave folks carried overhead on chairs. Of course we'll photograph appropriate scenes including many candid shots such as groups of friends, special request photos, and whatever else turns up.

If you have a DJ or MC at the reception, we'll work with them to coordinate the fun.

We always cooperate with video, whether professional or amateur.
