San Diego Bar Mitzvah Hilton Del Mar
Choosing a Bar Mitzvah Photographer
There have always been bar mitzvahs. Various sources show that it has existed since Biblical and Talmudic times, and that the ceremony took on a more formal and organized approach beginning from almost 2,000 to 1,500 years ago.
However, there have not always been bar mitzvah ceremonies. These are much more recent affairs and involve a great many considerations such as finding a location for the event, providing food and drinks, entertainment and a theme which can be present in table decorations and the decor.
Most recent of all, of course, is bar mitzvah photography. Just as you need to choose things and people to handle the other aspects (such as caterers or restaurants for the food and drink), so too will you need to choose a professional San Diego bar mitzvah photographer. The following are the best recommendations and tips to do so.
Perhaps more so than in other ceremonies, celebrations and events, you should find a photographer that provides the style of photographs that is simpatico with what you consider to be important. If the photographer’s folder of photographs focus primarily on the children, and you want a more adult or mature oriented theme then that photographer would not be an appropriate choice for you. Neither would it be if the photographs focused on the adults and you wanted a more youthful theme.
As in almost anything and everything, seek out word-of-mouth reviews from family, friends, colleagues or neighbors. Ask these people the important questions of the photographer’s professionalism and interaction with the people at the ceremony and/or party.
As in almost anything and everything, there are new developments in techniques and procedures, and the photographer ought to be aware of them and incorporate them whenever possible. Of course, you will not know what are these latest developments, but if the photographer is passionate about the profession then he or she will surely keep up with the newest in trends.
The human element of the photographer. When you analyze it, you come to realize that humans are humans and photography is photography. An atheist can take just as good a photograph of a Christian wedding, ceremony or event just as well as can a Christian. Thus, you do not necessarily need a Jewish photographer but you need one who is a good human and who can communicate well and provide you a good feeling.
