A fantastic party at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley celebrating Jack and Jordan’s B’nai Mitzvah. Congratulations! Event planned by Twist Events!
It’s great to do traditional family pictures but every once in awhile it’s really fun to do some “jumping for joy” pics too! It was Julie’s Bat Mitzvah celebration last night and we started the fun with a couple JUMPS!
Then we started the celebration and Brad and Party Excitement had everyone having a good time! Congratulations Julie!!
As I look back at the year 2012 I was very fortunate to photograph countless Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and they were all great. I truly love to photograph these special events. As you know 2012 was a year that stood out for its presidential election. And themes can be extra special if they take into account the current times.
For this reason Janie Haas Events gets a big thumbs up for their Bar Mitzvah decor and event. The setting played on all of the Presidential themes and Ethan even had his own posters fashioned after the famed Obama poster created by Shepard Fairey.
Themes and decor such as this provides a backdrop for fantastic pictures. One can have fun using the setting designed by professionals to great effect!
I’m looking forward to many more fantastic events in 2013!
If it’s one thing I know, it’s that Jake likes to celebrate! I had a wonderful time last night with Jake’s family and friends at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley. Congratulations!
Table Sensations provided the ambience for a fantastic Bat Mitzvah this past weekend held at Temple Beth Elohim in Andover.
I had a wonderful time celebrating with Abby and the whole family at Temple Emanuel in Andover last night! Congratulations and Mazel Tov!

Yesterday I was lucky to be a part of a wonderful Bar Mitzvah celebration for Drew! It was a fantastic experience and a wonderful time! Congratulations Drew! Be sure to visit me on facebook at Boston Event Photographers.
The hora is the culmination of the celebration! That’s why I love to photograph the hora. As you can see Jess had a wonderful time at her Bat Mitzvah celebration at Temple Emanuel in Wellesley. Congratulations Jess!
Another fantastic event designed and planned by Janie Haas Events!
The hora is the culmination of the Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah celebration. It’s when everything goes and you get to release all of the excitement that’s been building up for some time in the planning. I love the moment. It was fantastic celebrating with Alex and his family this past weekend at the Windsor Club. Congratulations Alex!
I’m so used to seeing DJs and MCs at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and they always do such a great job. But this last event, Jill’s Bat Mitzvah celebration, showcased Beantown. They brought a ton of energy to the party and as you can see it was a good time for everyone. The party was held at Temple Beth Avodah in Newton MA. Congratulations Jill!
Twist Events planned and decorated the Boston venue Artists for Humanity this past weekend for Henry’s Bar Mitzvah celebration. As you can see, the ambiance set the stage for a fantastic event! (see hora pictures in previous post).
Congratulations Henry! And congratulations to the whole family for a wonderful evening of fun and celebration. The hora had to be one of the most dynamic I’ve seen!
Candle lighting has become a tradition at most Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah celebrations. It’s a great opportunity to acknowledge family and friends. But, as Gabe properly demonstrates, it’s a perfect opportunity to engage in that all time favorite birthday tradition of blowing out the candles!!
It’s been a couple years since I photographed Maya’s Bat Mitzvah at Temple Aliyah in Needham and it was great to see her again, this time while photographing her brother Gabriel during rehearsal for his Bar Mitzvah this coming weekend. It was terrific to see the family again. I’m looking forward to the party on Saturday! Good luck Gabriel!
Great event decor sets the mood for the party! This dazzling room was fashioned by Jodi and Deb of JD Invites Joyous Occasions. Completely fantastic! The venue was the Pine Brook Country Club of Weston MA.
After a summer of weddings it felt good to return to photographing Bar Mitzvahs. And it was lots of fun to celebrate with Harrison and his family and friends this past weekend! Locations included Temple Beth Avodah in Newton and the Pine Brook Country Club in Weston. Harrison was cool as could be! But as the party started to unfold the wild side started to come through….
I’m not sure who these two guys are that ran into our photo!!
As the summer progresses and the wedding season begins (for more information on my wedding photography visit Boston wedding photographer) it’s fun to look back at the previous year of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and see which events stand out.
First, I must say that all of the families were great fun and a joy to celebrate with. But when I look back there was one venue that stood out in the total decor department – The Royal Sonesta of Boston. So to celebrate the best boston venue I’ve included some great decor shots to reveal the possibilities:
Beautiful decor and table settings by Artistry Boston set the mood. Uplighting by Party Excitement provides that extra ambiance. Bat Mitzvah held at Temple Isaiah in Lexington MA.
A big congratulations to Sarah on her Bat Mitzvah celebration!! It was fantastic fun celebrating with the whole family and NM Events made the day special!
