Bar Mitzvah

I had the pleasure of shooting my first Bar Mitzvah the other day. I arrived at the Synagogue as the ceremony was still going on and stood just outside the door shooting into the temple until roundly told off by a six year old who informed me that that was forbidden. Roundly chastised I duly waited until afterwards and began to shoot. My Metz flash, combined with the light from the beautiful windows behind seem to have done a good job of capturing the spirit of the place.

After the ceremony I went home for a few hours before going out to a beautiful golf club in the evening to capture a wild and fun party.

Fun fun fun!

It was a wonderful evening with plenty of food and drink and a great atmosphere mixing the traditional with the new.

The tradition of light

I just loved that there were so many kids there. I love to photograph kids!

Tobias and his buds!

People made good use of the gifts!

All in all a wonderful day!
