Choosing the best NJ event venue is tough. When you’re planning an event, picking the right location is key, especially when you’re hosting both adults and kids at a mitzvah. One of the venues I love photographing is Space in Englewood, NJ. Photographically speaking, it’s a challenging location. The ceilings are tall and black, the amazing dance lighting changes in brightness constantly, and…yes, it will “snow” on my camera. However, the energy and emotions you can capture at Space are priceless. It’s just such a fun place! The kids get video games, laser tag, and bowling. The adults get a classy lounge, bar, and amazing finger food. (Guilty. I ate one). The last event had a sushi and taco bar plus the typical kid fare. Recently we photographed a gorgeous family who hosted their bar mitzvah at Space. First, here’s a few from their portrait session:
I had the pleasure of visiting Space one morning during the week (I had accidentally left a light stand behind). Behind the scenes, the staff was building custom table center pieces for the upcoming party. Drills, sawdust, and a workshop! At our party, the crew had designed beautiful basketball centerpieces that were a joy to photograph.
Once the party starts, the music pumps (bring ear plugs, old people) and the lights blare. The party/club atmosphere is contagious and I quickly found myself dancing while shooting. (PS: Yes, I brought ear plugs)
So if you’re thinking of an all-inclusive venue that will knock-your-guest’s socks off, take a look at Space. It makes me look awesome when I can capture guests reacting to indoor snow and confetti!!
(I am not sponsored or paid to mention Space. I just genuinely love shooting there. And sneaking a nugget or two.)
