Woodland Hills Bat Mitzvah Photography – Valley Beth Shalom, Hilton Woodland Hills
I had a very difficult time narrowing things down to what you see below (always a good problem to have). We had some great locations in and surrounding the Woodland Hills Hilton, plus Sydney had a beautiful masquerade mask, so we shot with and without the mask. I have a number of portrait shots that are simply fantastic (even more than shown). Sydney is very photogenic, something I discovered during her pre-Bat Mitzvah portrait session (I’ll do another post from that session soon).
We originally shot at Valley Beth Shalom with immediately family and grandparents. It was really interesting to see that Sydney and her family had a family torah, with which we had the opportunity to photograph. It was a smaller torah, which Sydney had a much easier time holding.
For the reception we rounding things out with extended family in the beautiful remodeled lobby of the Hilton. Once all that was done, it was time to party. Sydney make her grand entrance by being carried in to the room. It was amazing to watch the entire family dance for hours (this was a nonstop kind of event). I was even able to capture Sydney sliding across the dance floor in the socks provided for the kids.
It was a great night for all and I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos with the family! Congratulations Sydney!
