You may be wondering “How does a star photographer who’s enjoyed photographing the biggest celebrities in the world finally decide he wants to photographer Mitzvah’s too?”
If you had asked me to photograph your Mitzvah in years past, as did many people including good friends, I would have politely declined. That all changed recently when I 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. He enlisted the culinary help of his parents and siblings as well as grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, plus some REALLY good friends.
I realized that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to “capture the moment” for Sammy? 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 Mitzvahs in my unique style for cool 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 August of 2019 in the New York Tri State area.
I promise to make your Bar or Bat Mitzvah teen and family shine like the unique stars you are!
Be sure to check out my star-studded portfolios in the On Set, Actors Headshots, Rockers Rappers Singers Bands, and Corporate Events sections of my website to see how amazing my photography can be for you too.
