JEREMY'S BAR MITZVAH :: Columbia Jewish Congregation + Ten Oaks Ballroom

Jeremy's bar mitzvah was my 20th and final bnai mitzvah for 2013.  The best part about it was that it was my second time shooting for the Jablonover family ~ I photographed older brother Ben's bar mitzvah last year and was honored that they hired me again for Jeremy's big day.  One of the best parts of shooting a family the second time is that there is already a trust and comfort level built in.  I knew, for the most part, the best way to pose them and the best way to let their natural connection unfold on it's own.  They are simply one of the nicest families I've had the pleasure of working for ~ I even overheard the DJ telling his dancers, while they were setting up, that Lisa and Michael were the nicest people they'd ever meet.  Corny?  Maybe.  But totally and completely true.  And Jeremy's party was a reflection of that ~ it was lively and fun and packed with friends and family from all over who were happy just to be there celebrating. Thank you Lisa, Michael, Ben and Jeremy for allowing me to share in another simcha with your family.  Enjoy this preview of images to come!
