A complete Events Photo Service

Jakov Strelchin knows bar and bat mitzvah photography intimately. After all, he’s been doing it for his own family and friends throughout his more than 30 years as a professional photographer. And he knows the Chicago area, where he’s been the favorite bar and bat mitzvah photographer for families in Chicago’s north and northwest suburbs since 1994.


Yakov knows every bar/bat mitzvah venue and resource in the area. With your permission, he’ll gladly share his thoughts and suggestions to help plan your special event and make it fun – no extra charge.


Clients rave about Yakov’s winning personality and his ability to interact with young people. And they love the quality and creativity of our work at Yakov’s Studio, our service and dependability, and our affordable prices. They trust us and keep coming back to us whenever they have another bar or bat mitzvah or a wedding or other event.


We want to preserve each memory of your son’s or daughter’s special day. As Yakov says, “My passion lies in capturing the love, happiness, and beauty of the unforgettable moments of your life.”


Our work begins long before the bar or bat mitzvah ceremony and celebration. We’ll be with you, as needed, throughout the planning process. During the event, Yakov and his personally trained staff will take stunning portraits and action-packed candid photos all through the day, customized to meet your unique needs and wishes. You’ll hardly know we’re there, yet you’ll know you can trust us to capture every special moment.


We know that each bar and bat mitzvah is unique, especially yours. So if you tell us your needs and budget, we’ll customize a package that’s comfortable and affordable for you and that will meet – and exceed – your expectations.


But don’t take our word for it. We urge you to come in to meet Yakov during a free consultation and viewing of our exquisite bar and bat mitzvah photography and videography. We’re certain you’ll like what you see. We’ll also put you in touch with as many of our clients as you wish; they’ll recommend us to you, as they do to their own family and friends.
