So, you’ve decided to celebrate your once in a lifetime event in Israel. Excellent decision!
Now, not only do you have to make this exciting event happen you also have to make sure that it will be preserved as a wonderful memory for years to come. How can you do that?
Often when you look at the photographs of your Bar / Bat Mitzvah event they stir up vague memories that don’t really remind you of your experience. After having invested so much into coming to Israel to celebrate your Bar or Bat Mitzvah, you would probably like to memorialize this once in a lifetime event just as it is and capture its exciting atmosphere, so that when you look at the photographs in five or even ten years from now you will still feel that same sense of delight.
In the end all we are left with are our memories, and the ability to re-experience that same wonderful sense of joy and love, again and again - that is all that really matters, isn’t it?
My name is Michal Lev Hamon.
I am a professional and experienced photographer and a member of the Har-El Reform Community in Jerusalem.
I specialize in event photography, mainly of Bar and Bat Mitzvoth for members of the American and Canadian reform communities that come to Israel to celebrate this special occasion and conduct ceremonies at Robinson’s Arch in Jerusalem and at Masada. I shoot stills and work with an expert video photographer.
I have a background in art (sculpture, jewelry making, artistic furniture design) which is apparent in my photography. In my work I focus especially on capturing the special, once in a lifetime moments that the family experiences – love, joy, tears of excitement.
I preserve all of these moments with my discerning eye and my camera – together we capture the moment.
As a member of the reform community I know that you are looking for someone to perceive the unique atmosphere of the moving reform Bar Mitzvah ceremony and I know how to capture it in the way that you want. if you’d like to see some of the photographs that I’ve shot at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, which the families still enjoy looking at every time anew, and to see how else I can help you with the photography and arrangements for your event... please click here:
