Friends often ask me if I prefer to be a photographer or a guest at their big event…that they want me to have fun and enjoy myself. The truth is that I am lucky to love what I do and photographing a special event like a Bar Mitzvah is a true honor to be able to tell the story…especially for good friends!
As my son’s best friend, I have watched Owen grow up from a little boy into a bright young man over the last eight years or so. From school to sports to playing around, Owen was always hanging around with my son Max. It was so special to be such a big part of his Bar Mitzvah day as their photographer.
Owen led the morning service and chanted Torah as he became a Bar Mitzvah – son of the commandments. He did a beautiful job and made his family so proud. Much deserving of a major celebration, Owen brought down the house – his house – as he and his family partied all day long! The Dadeland Marriot set the scene for a sportacular celebration! With help from Shanna Lammie, Owen’s mom turned the roon into a fun space that any sports fan would love! MC Marcelo of Pure Energy kept the beats going for hours and hours. It was a wonderful day and Janine Stone Photography was truly honored to capture these moments that I know the Katsikas family will never forget.
Thank you for inviting me into your lives and keeping me around for so long! Does your family have a big celebration coming up? Click here to contact Janine Stone Photography to capture every moment of your event for your family!
