Miles’ Bar Mitzvah :: Fort Wayne Bar Mitzvah Photography

bar mitzvah and his parents

This was my first time photographing a Bar Mitzvah, and I had so much fun. It’s great to step out of your comfort zone and try something different. And let me tell you, the party following the service had to be the party of the year! The staff at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art and TriGetty did an amazing job getting creative with the movie theme. From the red carpet entrance to the popcorn centerpieces and unique place settings, they didn’t overlook a single detail. Even the buffet stations were themed according to different movies! The evening wrapped up across the street at the Arts Lab black box theater, which had a Willy Wonka theme. Children and adults alike enjoyed ping pong, pinball, dancing, and a Willy Wonka ice luge.
