Hiring me as your Berkeley Bar Mitzvah Photographer

Pricing & Next Steps

For most families, temples, and myself as photographer, it will work best to have me document your child's bar mitzvah (bat mitzvah, b'nai mitzvah) rehearsal. During this time, I'm able to move about most freely for the best shots and without distracting from the service. (And on the day of? You'll know you already have photos done!)

For the bar mitzvah rehearsal session, I charge my standard family session rate for 1 hour. Digital portraits and prints are purchased separately once your photo gallery is delivered online. (See pricing details for my family photography sessions an review my terms and conditions here.)
