1. Why hire a professional vendor?
The reason to hire a professional Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah photographer is to have the event captured in a professional way which includes lighting, composition, creative and fun way. By having a professional photographer it gives the client a piece of mind and the ability to enjoy the event without worry about taking photos.

2. How did you get started with your business?
I have been photographing for almost 12 years. I started my business with architecture photography back in 2002 when my son was born and slowly shifted into wedding, corporate and event photography. I also photographed over 5,000 family and kid sessions.

3. What inspires you in your field of expertise?
What inspires me in photography is the subjects and capturing an event which will later turn into a memory for that family or client. I also enjoy to later see the look on the bride/groom, the parents of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child, or family when they review the images.

4. What is the most challenging and rewarding part about your job?
The most challenging part about event photography is the time frame. The most rewarding part is knowing you captured a memory that will last forever.

5. What does a typical day at work consist of?
A typical day at work consists of working with my team to better the business starting with reviewing and editing photos, communicating with clients and networking with vendors. In addition, everyone in my photography studio has multiple tasks such as replying to client emails, social media (which we love!), setting up appointments for photo shoots and consultations, designing Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah and wedding albums and ordering prints. We also love to blog and share our past events with the world. …and one more thing, we like to eat a lot!

6. What makes you successful and stand out from the rest?
What makes me successful and stand out from the rest is I like to take risks and think outside the box when capturing images. I don’t mind getting dirty or wet, if that means I will get a good image. I love to use creative lighting and shoot in low light. I always try to take the clients visions or ideas and turn them into a reality.

7. What was the most memorable event that you have done?
Each photo shoot and event that I do is memorable to me, whether it is a Wedding, Bar Mitzvah, Family Shoot or Newborn Shoot. The most memorable was a family photo shoot where I was able to capture the whole family together for the last time 3 weeks before the father passed away. I then later participated and photographed the 5K run that they had in honor of him.

8. What has been your biggest accomplishment within your company? Tell me about an accomplishment you are most proud of.
My biggest accomplishment has been receiving numerous awards such as, ‘Best of Wedding Photography 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014’, ‘Best Wedding Photographer and Top 5 on the San Diego A List 2011, 2012, 2013’, ‘Wedding Wire 2012, 2013, 2014’, and ‘My Wedding 2013’. In addition I was also invited to be part of Best of Wedding Photography (BOW), International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP), and Fearless Photographers.

Optional: Any additional information you would like to share.
As a professional wedding, corporate and event photographer we always thrive to better ourselves when photographing a wedding, Bar Mitzvah, corporate shoot and even a family session. I always try to get the best out of any photography situation and work with anything that I have available to me to make sure I come up with amazing images no matter the location, lighting or time of day.
