After years of Hebrew school, and a solid year of practicing your Torah portion and Mitzvah, it's finally time to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvot - literally, "son or daughter of the commandment". This is such a joyous life occasion, that you'll want to capture the memories to share with family and friends forever.
We know Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, well, maybe not as well as the rabbi, but we can unequivocably say we've photographed more B'nai Mitzvahs than any photographer in Utah. I understand the spiritual importance of the day, the rituals, the images that must be captured. I know what is happening and when, and more importantly why because I, too, am Jewish and have celebrated my B'nai Mitzvah at Temple Har Shalom as well.
Formal portraits only, photographed early morning the day of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
Gorgeous portrait imagery captured inside the synagogue at the Bimah. From holding and reading from the torah, to perfect images with proud mom and dad, siblings, and grandparents. These are the image that will evoke emotion for decades to come.
75 - 90 minutes of portrait photography.
Web access for your friends and family to peruse the day and order images.
Custom thumb drive of images for you.
Portraits and Ceremony
Gorgeous formal portraits, casual captures, and full Bar or Bat Mitzvah imagery. Sub group imagery of your son or daughter with grandparents, cousins, and of course, you. Everything noted above and so much more.
I'll guide you and your guests as your child is presented a prayer shawl, receives hugs and kisses from grandparents, and captures you, wiping tears of happiness as you read how proud you are of your child. Wide shots capturing the full synagogue, and tight shots of family are included.
If you are having an Oneg afterwards, we'll be capturing this for you as well.

Our Park City Jewish Roots
We've been a part of the Park City Jewish Community for over twenty years. From meeting in a tiny store front's back room and teaching Hebrew School to seven year-olds, to ground-breaking and walking the Torah to the new synagogue, we've been there. Both of my sons celebrated Bar Mitzvah's at Temple Har Shalom, and I had my B'nai Mitzvah at THS as well.
We offer the following to the Park City synagogues as part of my give back to the community:
Temple Har Shalom: Photographing the annual graduating confirmation class.
Chabad: Photographing special events
If you are a member of THS and cannot afford professional photography services, please have Michael contact me. I find it rather imperative that you have a few images of your child with the Torah.
