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. 

Bar Mitzvah Photographer at The Meadow Club in Fairfax, CA Marin County. Samuel.

The Meadow Club in Fairfax is perched at the top of Mount Tamalpais in Marin County is unparalleled with their views.  It is such a great venue for a Bar Mitzvah and Samuel and his family had the best time.  Jayne Greenberg of Just Jayne Events planned the most incredible casino night themed and everyone had a blast gambling the night away.  Lucky 7’s were in the house and I hope Samuel remembers this night forever.

Bat Mitzvah Photographer at Emanu-El and Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, Marin County. Dani.

Dani just LOVES cereal and breakfast in general so why not have your Bat Mitzvah party theme “Breakfast at Dani’s”?  So cute and there was cereal everywhere but let’s not forget the ridiulous yummy chicken and waffles that were served with Dani’s designer syrup.  After a beautiful service at Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco everyone congratulated Dani on a job well done.  She was so confident and knowledgeable and everyone was very impressed.  Then on to the party at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, Marin where everyone was ready to have some serious fun!  The DJ was amazing and they had come up from LA to serve some kickin’ fresh beats for everyone to dance to.  Jayne Greenberg from Just Jayne Events made sure everything went off without a snare and everyone had the time of their loves rocking well into the evening.  Mazel Tov Dani!  xxoo

Bat Mitzvah Photographer. San Rafael, Marin County at Rodef Shahom and party at Peacock Gap.

Lindsey’s bat mitzvah was so lovely at Rodef Sholom in San Rafael and look at the party at Peacock Gap    She wanted a Survivor theme so there were many adventure games and the Bat Mitzvah party photos were so candid and fun!  I love being a bar and bat mitzvah photographer as I find kids at this age so fascinating as they are starting to look outside their inner circle at the world and how they can make a difference.  It’s a celebration of them becoming the adult they were meant to be.  I mean that’s an honor to photograph these moments!  Go Lindsey!
