My Mitzvah Story
I recently heard about Sammy, a seasoned competitor of both “Chopped Junior” and “Masterchef Junior”, who had chosen to cook for the 200 guests attending his Bar Mitzvah and donate the money saved on the catering bill towards a charity for the homeless.
I realized I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to “capture the moment” for Sammy. He had secured the culinary help of his parents and siblings as well as grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, plus some REALLY good friends. Camera in hand, shutter clicking away, unleashing all of the photo journalistic skills honed during years photographing reality television and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon I discovered that Mitzvahs are a blast to photograph.
So drum roll please … I’m officially launching Douglas Gorenstein Mitzvah Photography!
As a proud member of the Conservative Synagogue Adath Israel of Riverdale and the father of a Solomon Schechter Westchester Middle Schooler I’m excited to leverage my entertainment background and photograph more Bar & Bat Mitzvahs in my unique style for cool 12 & 13 year olds and their fantastic families … and self catering the meal is totally optional.
To get this show on the road and build up my portfolio, I’m offering a special limited time “too good to resist rate!” for Mitzvahs happening between now and March 2020 in the New York Tri State area.
Please check out my star-studded portfolios in the Celebrity Headshots, Celebrity Music, and Events & Executive Headshots sections of my website to see how my style could work for you.
I promise to make your very own unique Bar or Bat Mitzvah star shine too!
