Each and every one of my clients has a unique story to tell. It is my privilege to share those stories with you.
This epic La Cañada Flintridge Country Club bar mitzvah was so much fun to photograph! I honestly don’t know who had more fun, me or the guests. There’s just something about photographing mitzvah-age kids that I get a huge kick out of! Jacob’s family hosted his mitzvah at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club, a stunning event venue overlooking Los Angeles.
Jacob’s bar mitzvah started with a family portraits before the formal ceremony. It was so sweet getting to see all of Jacob’s close family members, family friends, and school friends come together to celebrate with him! Jacob comes from a really sweet, connected family.
Afterwards, the ceremony began. Jacob read from the torah and gave his thoughts and interpretations on scriptures that stook out to him. In a surprise twist, the ceremony concluded with guests throwing candy at him! I think the kids took it a little bit more intensely than was planned, and Jacob and his father ducked for cover as they were lovingly pelted with candy. I literally could not stop laughing.
The epic ceremony lead into an epic reception, with a MC, photo booth, and tons of fun activities and games! One of the games was musical chairs and let me tell you: never have I ever seen a more competitive game played! The party ended with dancing and a sweet and emotional candle lighting. Many guests were drawn to tears. There was so much love in this family and everyone had a wonderful time! Including me!
