The Twins and the Torah: Congratulations to Jacob and Joshua Shuman on their upcoming Bar Mitzvah!

We’re getting so excited to capture the Shuman Twins’ big day next weekend! This family is so sweet and vivacious, and we can’t wait to share in their joy as the twins are called to the Torah. We actually had the great honor of capturing their older sister’s Bat Mitzvah  a couple of years ago Check out photos from their pre-mitzvah family photo shoot below, and note the lovely feature they received in Beth Israel Quarterly!

Bar & Bat Mitzvah Videography

Videotaping a Mitzvah event gives us the special opportunity to weave together the most important moments of the day to create what we know will become a unique and important family memory.  We are so proud to know that the videos we work so hard to craft are passed down from generation to generation.

Thank you to the families below and to all of our clients for gifting us this privilege. Here are a few of our most recent Bar & Bat Mitzvah highlight videos that will now be forever preserved for these lucky Mitzvah kids and for their children and grandchildren (and more) to enjoy!

Garrett & Rachel | B’nai Mitzvah | Congregation Beth Israel | Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines

BHV_7969

We love the Layton family and have been working closely with Robin (Mitzvah mom) for the past six+ years through her organization, Educational Enrichment Systems (EES). We’ve had the opportunity to watch Garrett & Rachel grow up and videotape/photograph their participation in numerous Mitzvah projects. So, it was a real joy to be a part of their Mitzvah celebration this past January. In the end, our whole team cried watching their video, realizing the transformation of these two kids into young adults.

This video highlight captures them perfectly:  

Here’s what Robin, Joth, Rachel & Garrett planned for their Mitzvah celebration:

Rachel & Garrett’s montage was a lot of fun to work on. The additional video clips of the kids when they were little made it a really fun video to watch!
