If you are working with a planner, we're happy to work directly with them or with you. Please let us know if your event coordinator requires a premium and we can arrange the details with them. Once we reserve your date, we'll schedule a consultation and your portrait sessions.

Portrait Photography

 

About a month prior to your Mitzvah date, we'll get together to take some fun photos. We can base the photos on a theme, or just make them up as we go. Most of our clients choose the casual route. Think of it like modern-day senior portraits, but for a Mitzvah boy/girl. YOu can change outfits, go to different locations, or come take photos in our studio. Use the images for art in your home or decorations at your party. The session is free with a purchase of the photos. We offer digital and print options for your portrait delivery.

Service/Reception Photography

 

Choose a coverage length based on the type of event you are hosting. Most people need an hour for portraits with family and 4 hours for the reception. If your synagogue allows photography during the service, add time as needed. Our coverage and product mix are entirely up to you. Choose from one of 4 prepared collections or create your own.

Service/Reception Videography

 

 

Much like our photography collections, the timeline for videography is up to you. No matter the length of coverage you need, we'll edit the video into a 5-7 minute highlight film. You'll enjoy all of the sights and sounds of your Bar or Bat Mitzvah in HD Video.

Questions & Answers

How much is the deposit to book?

 

With a signed contract and an $800 deposit, we'll hold the date for you. You will be our only event for that date.

 

Are the digital files included with the packages?

 

You'll receive print-ready JPG files and a Limited Usage print release. You'll be able to copy, reprint and reproduce your files. To keep the file sizes manageable, your files will allow you to print up to 8x10" prints.

 

How many Bar/Bat Mitzvah events have you done?

 

We've been photographing Mitzvahs since 2009. We've captured dozens and dozens since then. We are a boutique studio, so we keep our clients to a select few and average 6-8 Mitzvahs each year.

Do I get free digital files with my portrait session?

 

We know you'll love the portraits we make. We've waived the $250 session fee and the $250 minimum purchase for our Mitzvah clients. We do not, however, include any products for free with your session. If you like what we do, you'll be able to select from our a la carte menu for portraits. Most people invest an additional $350-1500 at this session. We will provide free digital files to you for your synagogue's newsletter. We will also provide a set of files to your event coordinator to use as decor for your party. Ask us for specific pricing on the portraits for your home.

 

How long after my event will I get my images?

 

Within 10 days of your event, you'll get a set of files as a preview. About 2 weeks later, you'll get a digital download link allowing you to save all of the files from your event. About 2 weeks later, you'll get an album design for proofing (if included in your collection). Once we have your approval on any design or retouch work, you'll receive your prints/albums in about 4-6 weeks.
