For most families in CT, bar mitzvah photos are central to commemorating a major life event. The transition to adulthood and the assumption of the religious responsibilities that come with it mark a turning point in every boy's life. Like a wedding or anniversary, a bar mitzvah is an event that will be remembered forever.

Although bar mitzvahs are celebratory events, they are also serious occasions. They mark a boy's passage into manhood and the assumption of full religious obligations. In addition, for many youth, they are central to shaping a Jewish cultural identity that extends beyond religious practices.

Photographing a Bar Mitzvah

There are many ways to commemorate a major life event, but few are as effective as well executed photographs. When it comes to capturing a bar mitzvah, some of the most beautiful shots come from the prayer services themselves and from the reading of the Torah. Temple architecture and lighting combined with the innate beauty of the service proceedings make for ideal ingredients for memorable photographs.

Of course, you'll likely want family portraits and candid shots as well. It's important to communicate with your photographer well in advance regarding the photographic style you'd like her to employ. It may be a blend of techniques, but open communication is central to getting the prints you desire.
