Sam’s bar mitzvah party was a big blow-out at the Wayzata Country Club a few weeks ago.  It was a hot and humid summer evening so we started with some fun family photos inside and eventually move outside for few when the rain stopped.  Once everyone arrived, it was time to celebrate with Sam and the always fun crew from Level 11 .  Games and dancing kept the kids busy most of the night along with the Traveling Photobooth and of course there was some wonderful food when everyone had worked up an appetite.  It was a fun crowd and Sam and his friend’s enjoyed a great evening.

AriannaMazel tov to Arianna and her family.  I had a great time photographing Arianna’s big bat mitzvah weekend a few weeks ago.  Arianna was fun to work with and combined with a beautiful evening, we got some great portraits of her and the family.  Saturday night was time to celebrate with family and friends at the Marriot Southwest.  It was another beautiful summer evening which the adults enjoyed on the patio with a social hour and hors d’oevres .  The kids hit the ballroom for good times with Total Entertainment spinning the tunes and playing games.  After dinner, the crowd filled the dance floor for a fun Hora and some great dancing.  It was a fun party and I’m know Arianna had wonderful weekend.

LizzieLizzie is young lady full energy and personality.  About the only thing that might slow her down is a bat mitzvah.  Nope, that didn’t slow her down either.  It was great to work with Lizzie and her family again to celebrate another simcha.  We had a fantastic portrait session Friday afternoon and then Saturday night it was time to cruise the Mississippi in celebration.  It was a nice evening with just a little bit a rain but that didn’t dampen the party as friends and family enjoyed the ride up and down the river and through the lower locks.

Sam had a full-house for his Bar Mitzvah a few weeks ago.  Thursday evening we did a fun portrait session with him and his family.  The weather was great and we even got some great shots outside.  Saturday night Sam celebrated with a big casino party at the Medina Country Club.  Karl Achilles had his Aces High Casino running at full steam for Sam, friends and family.  It was an easy going evening with horse racing, bingo, and all the favorite cards games.  Casino nights always bring out the fun expressions and are a blast to photograph.

Zachary_Bar_MitzvahI’ve been looking forward to shooting Zachary’s Bar Mitzvah for a while now, and it didn’t disappoint.  We had a great portrait session on Friday and then Sunday morning family and friends all gathered to celebrate at the always fun Varsity Theater in Dinkytown.  The ladies from Amy Zaroff  Events+Design had the place in tip top shape when Zach and his family arrived.  It was a energetic crowd and Sarge and his crew from Level 11 were happy to put on a great show.  I don’t think the dance floor was quiet for one minute.  Zach did a great job and we got some wonderful photos to remember the weekend by.

Enjoy the party recap video and then follow this link to his online photo gallery.  Mazel tov, Zach!
