As modern Mitzvah Photographer Baltimore MD, we specialize in documentary-style event photography allowing us to capture your special occasion as it unfolds. We do not stage your guests or direct the action of the day. No precious moment will be missed, as our skilled mitzvah photographers continually seek the intimate and quiet moments as well as the fun and boisterous on goings. We love photographing Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs and B’nai Mitzvahs for the complexity of emotions and events that are both sentimental and sweet along with the joyous and jovial. It is our true passion to photograph this incredible life celebration for you and your family. We know how emotional of a milestone this is for most parents. When your little boy or girl passes into adulthood before the congregation, we will be there to preserve your memories through our story-telling photographs. We understand that Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are a significant rite of passage for a young person and his or her family. We are very familiar with Jewish traditions and rituals and love how this celebration brings together the best traditions of family, religion, culture and history.
Your photography partner
When you team up with Rodney Bailey as your Mitzvah Photographer Baltimore MD, we will customize a photography collection to best suit your family’s needs and photography wishes. We often meet with our clients two to three weeks before the big day for formal portraits at your synagogue or temple. This provides the opportunity to capture photographs of your Bar or Bat Mitzvah child with the Torah as well as with your immediate family members. The benefit of scheduling this photography session on a separate day is to alleviate any pressure or time constraints on the day of your mitzvah celebration and may be requirement based on the specific photography guidelines of your synagogue.
We also offer casual family sessions at a location of your choice for a fun and relaxed photo shoot that is all about your family and your Bar or Bat Mitzvah child. It’s a wonderful way to get to know your Lead Photojournalist (and vice versa) as well as capture amazing photos in an outdoor setting. Do you have a favorite park or museum? Enjoy strolling around Little Italy or along the water at the Inner Harbor? Or perhaps you want to meet at your local roller skating rink or bowling alley? We can’t wait to hear what setting complements your family’s personality.
On the day of your Bat Mitzvah, Bar Mitzvah or B’nai Mitzvah, your Mitzvah Photographer Baltimore MD team will document your service and reception from beginning to end. Unlike traditional photography, our documentary-style approach is hands off and unobtrusive. We do not stop the action, stage your guests or the subjects, or take awkward and disruptive table shots. Instead, our photographers are your quiet witnesses capturing all the people, emotions, events, and moments (intimate and grand) that organically unfold throughout the celebration. We are your trusted storytellers and your mitzvah photos will reflect the true and beautiful narrative of this most celebrated day.
