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.

After a 6 hour day of shooting, I went to say goodbye to Stephania and Adam while they were hanging out on the dance floor. I told them, “this has been the most laid back wedding I’ve ever been apart of.” And I meant it.
While “laid back” can often result in running behind schedule, that wasn’t the case for Stephania and Adam’s wedding. The amazing crew at Empyrean made sure that every second of the day went off without a hitch, and that the Bride and Groom and all their guests were able to enjoy their day to the fullest, without stressing about a single detail.
It was a true pleasure to be a part of Stephania and Adam’s big day. I wish them nothing but the best as they start their lives together!
