Bris – Brit Milah Photographer in London

Mazel Tov! It’s a boy!

I was invited to photograph the Brit-Milah ceremony of a precious newborn boy a couple of years ago for first time and since then I’ve been invited to many Bris ceremonies as a photographer. We charge a flat fee of £450 inclusive of many things, please take a look at the prices section and if you have any questions, we’ll be happy to help you out.

Brit Milah Cinematic Video

We call it “Words of Devotion” – that’s a top trend now, please get in touch, you must see it. Shortly, it’s about a short cinematic film following a script prepared and staged by both you and us. It may be grandfather, rabbi, father or all together … reading a script or speaking by heart words of advice and devotion to the newborn baby, while holding the baby as if they talk to each other. This is a unique memory to be kept secretly and be projected on their Bar Mitzvah or wedding day later on. We film with at least 2 cameras, capturing close ups, details and wide angles to complete the story. It’s priceless having in mind that some people leave our lives before our Bar Mitzvah or wedding and your boy or girl will have a great heart touching memory of them forever. Think about it, how awesome it is!

And something for you dear visitor who don’t know what Brit Milah is. Brit Milah is a meaningful celebration. A Jewish tradition celebrated on the eight day of a baby boy’s life. The Bris – another way to name Brit Milah is a custom originated in biblical times, and since the dawn of Judaism, it has served as a physical symbol of the Jewish faith. This Jewish lifecycle event for baby boys is held on the eighth day of life, assuming baby is healthy enough. Many parents create a celebration around the circumcision ceremony, and invite friends and family to meet the newest member of their family.

The Brit Milah ceremony bestows honors on the special people in the baby’s life who will have the opportunity to hold the child and welcome him. Sherman honors any great-grandparents in attendance and the baby’s namesake whose soul, according to Jewish tradition, is now forever intertwined with a new one. Cantor Sherman admits he is one of the funniest guys you’ll ever meet, but he leaves his shtick at home while on call.

While some families turn to doctors to circumcise their sons while still in the hospital, a traditional Bris involves a traditional mohel, who is trained in the ritual of circumcision. Mohels like Cantor Sherman perform circumcisions exclusively and on a full-time basis, and will ensure the ceremony is in accordance with Jewish law. Many mohels have done tens of thousands of circumcisions (Cantor Sherman has done over 21,000 circumcisions throughout his career!) and receive referrals from the medical community. A mohel usually circumcizes the baby in less than 15 seconds with no advanced preparations. If you don’t know a mohel, you can ask your doctor for a recommendation, or call you local Jewish community center. There’s also a helpful list here.

We used Peter Lane to photograph our daughters Batmitzvah last August, together with his wife they took fantastic and innovative photos capturing all the best moments and ones that you thought a photographer would never get near to! What we liked as well as his polite manner was that he and his wife always seemed to be in the background but managing to capture everything, in an unobtrusive way.

We have and would be happy to recommend Peter Lane photography to family and friends.

I’m writing with regards to the excellent photography services provided by Peter Lane, in both a personal and business capacity, over the past five years. 

Peter is reliable, creative and an absolute pleasure to work with. He interacts with his clients well, bringing out the best in them and capturing the essence of each moment.

Being President of the Enfield and Southgate Conservative Association, I often hold high profile events and Peter has recorded the proceedings for publicity purposes. He has worked with many high ranking politicians including Boris Johnson MP, Kenneth Clark CH QC MP and more recently, Zac Goldsmith MP, Sajid Javid – Secretary of State for Business, Jeremy Hunt – Secretary of State for Health. 

I would highly recommend Peter’s photography services.

Yours truly,

I met Peter Lane in Moscow in 2008 and was calling him the Russian Testino because of his extraordinary genius for photography and perfect Russian. All clients addressed to him just rave about his talent and warm human personality. I’m pleased to know and recommend Peter.
