Βar and Bat Mitzvahs

12 Apr 2020

We were blown away when we saw the decorations for this bar mitzvah by Τatiana Κ. at the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge London. It was full of vivid colours and beautiful details everywhere we looked. The incredible greengrocer decor was also provided by Tatiana, who is renowned for the breathtaking settings she and her team create.

A bar or bat mitzvah is a special occasion in a young person’s life. Daniel held himself with remarkable poise, delivering his speech and fulfilling his other responsibilities with a level of maturity that made his family smile with pride. See more…

The youthful energy of the guests at a bar or bat mitzvah is always a lot of fun, and it is enjoyable watching families celebrate together, sharing loving bonds in a tradition that is thousands of years old.

We started the day with some individual shots of Osher, who looked endearingly proud if slightly self-conscious in his suit and hat, showing signs of the man he will become. He is the oldest boy in a family with seven children, and we took the opportunity to do individual pictures of all the siblings. It is always lovely to have images of children at different stages of their lives – not only at a handful of milestone events – and something parents and grandparents appreciate enormously.

Whatever the event, we always look for those candid moments, the unscripted shots which capture the emotion of the day and show subjects at their most natural. A special thank you to Osher’s mother for allowing us to play a role in this momentous occasion. They made us feel extremely welcome, and we enjoyed our experience of the day. Mazel tov!

There is nothing like the atmosphere of a bar mitzvah celebration. Its religious significance is important, while the following reception can be like a great celebration, the concentration of teenagers creates an atmosphere similar to a school prom. It’s sweet, endearing, and always a lot of fun.

Everyone, especially a teenager, can feel awkward when they are the centre of attention. Uri, however, was poised and calm during his bar mitzvah photography at Od Yosef Hai in Hendon, carrying out his responsibilities with gravitas and maturity that made his parents proud. See more…
