Bar and Bat Mitzvah Photographer in San Francisco Bay Area by Dana Hargitay of enLuce Photography

Awe the Bat Mitzvah ….They make me wish I was Jewish ✡️ so I could have one for my son. It might be the most amazing thing ever for a kid to celebrate the bridge between childhood and adulthood. The service is very beautiful as each child talks about a moral or social issue they would like to focus on and then the party, well, it’s off the hook with everyone celebrating! 🎉🎉  Here are some Bar and Bat Mitzvahs I’ve shot over the year. 

Bat Mitzvah Photographer in Palo Alto, Bay Area, San Francisco – Ally in Wonderland.

This was the most amazing Bat Mitzvah ever — with an Alice in Wonderland theme, but of course they called it “Allie in Wonderland.”  Just look at these Bat Mitzvah photography!  These mitzvah images were bursting with fun and excitement.  I photographed this with mostly natural light and then used an on camera flash after it got dark. There was a Mad Hatter magician and circus games under red and white striped cabana tents, and a silent disco where everyone was given headphones to tune in and dance to the playlist of their choice. To top it off, the moms did a mob squad choreographed dance surprise for the kids with a hilarious confetti explosion at the end! Booking a fantastic Bar or Bat Mitzvah photographer is so important so you have all these beautiful images as memories or to showcase your images in an album which surely will become a family heirloom!
