On a rainy Saturday last summer, I was on duty as Kai’s Bar Mitzvah photographer at Stephen S. Wise Temple in Bel Air. Kai’s mother had been referred to my professional photography and videography services through a mutual friend.
It was a really special place for Kai to celebrate his coming of age, because his father had his Bar Mitzvah there many years before.
I was familiar with the Temple because I’d been a school portrait photographer at Stephen S. Wise Elementary School and was comfortable with the existing lighting in the main room and the layout and surrounding grounds.
The reception was held there as well and was very festive and lively, thanks in part to a great DJ. Mazel tov, Kai!
