the bar mitzvah S family

Lee and Tony, (who are boating enthusiasts), wished to have family portraits taken at a location their boys would relate to. We chose the Docklands which is adjacent to Melbourne's business district, the capital of the state of Victoria in Australia. The water front urban landscape with its strong architecture and masculine lines made the perfect location. Docklands offers a mix of uses including residential, commercial, retail, dining and leisure. It attracts millions of visitors each year.

Their ceremony took place at The Caulfield Hebrew Congregation where we photographed the rehearsal several days before the actual "call-up".

Continuing the boating theme, the reception was held at The Brighton Savoy located at Brighton beach. The atmosphere was electric with so many teenagers letting it out. This made a great photojournalistic story with so many moments waiting to be captured.
