Nicholas and his family found me through Google and hired me as their bar mitzvah photographer in Pasadena.
It was my first time photographing an event at the Altadena Town and Country Club, a stunning location tucked into the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. The Altadena Town and Country Club is usually reserved for weddings, however, the family has a membership, so the historical venue accommodated their request to host Nicholas’ bar mitzvah there.
A wedding was also taking place on the day, so we couldn’t take many outdoor shots but made use of the interior space, which had lots of windows and allowed me to capture the picturesque scenery in the background of some of the bar mitzvah photos. Nicholas’ family was really happy with my bar mitzvah photography and even hired me to conduct a family portrait session a few months later.
