Consider these tips for the best Bar and Bat Mitzvah photography:
Most temples only allow photography during the Bar or Bat mitzvah rehearsal. Therefore, mitzvah photography takes place during the practice session.
It’s important to communicate to any family members attending the rehearsal that they will want to look their best and dress accordingly.
During this time, anticipate a mix of candid photos and family formals. Remember to add in some spontaneity between the serious moments.
Sprinkling in hugs and family humor can lighten the formality of the setting.
Photographs will also be taken the day of the celebration, typically after the temple event.
The celebration or party on the day of the event will most likely be less formal. This is a great time for capturing fun moments with family and friends.
Bar and Bat Mitzvahs can have fast-paced schedules. Sometimes, events may even overlap. An understanding of the types of events will better prepare your photographer.
Coordinate with your photographer on the must-have list of family groupings and portraits. Include special guests of honor or relatives from out of town on your list.
Consider outdoor photographs to take advantage of the beautiful temple grounds and landscaping. This will add a different vibe to your poses and offer more variety for your album.
