So, a while back, I can clearly recall my brain saying “There’s no way I am shooting events.” I’m strictly an urban chic portrait photographer. After agreeing to shoot a Bar Mitzvah a few years back, I was a wreck. The fear of ruining someone’s special day is enough to send you under the covers! After a few Mitzvahs under my belt, however, my rookie nerves disappeared and I started to actually enjoy myself! It’s like clockwork now. Each event begins with capturing the special Torah reading:
Later on, the festivities begin. Food, drink, games, and smiles! The DJ’s at these events are simply amazing and know how to get everyone pumped. I often find myself dancing as I shoot. I mean, check these out!!
Ah…takes me back to my clubbing days. Also, the food is always a welcome distraction as I shoot!
Still my favorite part of shooting the day is our teen fashion photo shoot. I want to give Mom and Dad something fantastic they can cherish from the event…because, let’s face it….in one year they will look completely different. 🙂
