Celebrations

Faithfully capture all of life's special occasions.

Some things in life are special. Weddings and birthday parties and bar mitzvahs - these are the events that we most often want to capture with our cameras.

But sometimes the problem with these events is that even though they are special, photos of them may turn out to be quite mundane. Photographing celebrations requires creativity and thought, so you can really capture the sense of what it was like to be there, rather than just documenting the event.
