I rarely shoot events anymore, but when I did, I’d have to rank this bar mitzvah up there as one of my favorites.
Ritual, tradition and coming together to celebrate make for a good party. It was a gorgeous afternoon in June, a few hours before sunset. The lawn overflowed with laughter, old friends, out-of-town guests and greetings shouted across the tables. There was plenty of music and good food as we came together to celebrate Jacob’s bar mitzvah in Pasadena. Congratulations, Jacob!
