As experienced Bar and Bat Mitzvah event photographers, we have worked in many Jewish temples in Los Angeles, so we are as familiar with the religiously significant moments as we are with the emotionally resonant ones. And we know that so often the two are one in the same. One of our favorite moments to photograph is when the Bar or Bat Mitzvah child carries the Torah through the audience, allowing a congregant to touch the holy scrolls with his or her prayer book, or offer a smile of encouragement as he or she passes. We love the confident smile of this girl, leading the way down the aisle, just as she will know be the leader of her own moral and spiritual life. We feel honored to get to document such a momentous milestone in our clients' lives.
