I've been fortunate to have shot hundreds of Simchas over the past seven years, which gives me a unique insight and ability to immerse myself in your world. I absolutely love the process from meeting you and your kids, photographing synagogue rehearsals, call ups and the party itself, to ultimately delivering an unrivalled set of pictures, that capture the very essence of your family experience.

On the day of the party, you will have a family portrait session at the venue, which usually lasts around an hour. We'll get to know each other and create classic images that are casual and as natural as possible. As I have a fun and engaging style, I can bring out the natural magic in both adults and kids alike. Even the shy ones!
Before the party begins, I'll co-ordinate with your event organiser, DJ, videographer and caterer to ensure I'm aligned with the full sequence of events. Initially I'll venture around the venue with just you and your kids to create interesting, different looks, whilst shots of the extended family are usually taken in the same spot.
Following the party, I'll work on your images to create lasting memories, which usually takes between two and three weeks. I believe the post production stage to be just as important as the live event shooting, so each image is handled with love and includes colour correcting and retouching, cropping, enhancing and ensuring attention to every detail. I'll begin work within a few days after the event and quickly provide a set of taster images. The full edit will follow shortly thereafter and once completed you'll receive the finalised images on a USB stick. We will also create a slideshow (like shown above) for you with music of your choice. Upon request I can also provide superb, hard backed photo albums to illustrate the high quality images.
