Photographer Jordan River understands Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. As a Bar Mitzvah himself Jordan knows about the preparation and time it takes to arrange for a Bar Mitzvah. Being familiar with the ceremony and the prayers Jordan knows exactly when and how to capture the ceremony. From beginning prayers, the opening of the Ark, the raising of the Torah, the Torah portion, Haftorah, and speeches, our photography skills are there to catch the rite of passage as it happens. We capture the spirit of youth and family, young and old, religious and non-religious events that surround this remarkable achievement by such a young individual . Bar Mitzvahs vary much differently than weddings. Grandparents are much more involved, siblings usually have honorable involvement, parental collaboration is inevitable. We respect the synagogues requirements by being properly dressed and placed during the ceremony or being present during the rehearsal. At the celebration we are kid friendly, dynamic and cool. Capturing the Hora, candle-lighting, dancing, and the intense joy that surrounds such a celebration. You must see our photography work up close to gain the true appreciation for what we do.
