Samuel’s Bar Mitzvah

Samuel’s Bar Mitzvah at The Bloomsbury Ballroom – by Peter Lane Creative Studio

My team of photographers & videographers and myself we all were very happy to meet Samuel’s lovely family. Filming the Bar Mitzvah rehearsal was a pleasure to watch for everyone present. Samuel was reading the Torah with confidence and passion.

Having Jonny Bluestone as a DJ for the mitzvah party was a guarantee for lots of fun and the video bellow is a proof.

Mazel Tov Samuel! We wish you all the blessings in this world.

Enjoy the video and be advised, we book Bar & Bar Mitzvah clients for 1-2 years in advance. Get in touch before others.

My Simcha World

Jewish Community – a personal touch by Jewish wedding photographer Peter Lane

Jewish wedding photographer & Bar Mitzvah Photographer - Synagogue in Prague

As a Jewish Simcha wedding photographer and a Bar Mitzvah Photographer, leading a team of Simcha photographers and videographers, August is our vacation month as the majority of our clientele is Jewish. So, what’s the link?

The Nine days of Av starting 1st of August are a religious observance in Judaism, being a part of The Three Weeks commemorating the history of temple destructions during Jewish history and not only. Basically a period of mourning, reducing the joy, introspection, repentance, and forging a closer relationship with God.

So, my personal view. Living in Orange County upstate New York and witnessing some super fanatic communities around me, I wasn’t impressed and I believe those communities who act as if God owns them, throw a bad image for the rest of the amazing Jewish community. Adding on this the thousands of fake and anti-Jewish books of conspiracy made me even more reserved.

I found out it’s so easy to hate and hatred makes people blind. Jews are the most hated people in the world and this is a big mistake as the mass of Earth population doesn’t take responsibility for their well being, happiness and consequences of being lazy and destructive. Jewish people are very focused and dedicated of what they do. They study more, work more and when they celebrate they do is as if there won’t be tomorrow – and my team of Simcha photographers and videographers are blessed to capture those moments of joy.

I personally consider myself and well accepted as a part of the London Jewish community. My personal Peter Lane style Judaism took me thru 9 years of Shabbat observation, kosher food diet, etc. practices beneficial for spirit and health.

If I have to link myself to e certain group of people – definitely the Jewish community.

This is my very short story. Wishing you all the best and remember most of our clients book their Bat & Bar Mitzvah, Jewish weddings 1-2 years in advance so get in touch in advance.

Your Simcha, Jewish Wedding photographer and videographer London

Welcome to the best Jewish wedding photography & storytelling videography company in London. My name is Peter Rosen-Lane, director of Peter Lane Photography, London based photography and videography company.

Shortly, how we started our Simcha department 5 years ago. I was invited to shoot and film a Simcha event and I had a meeting booked with the client. Very wealthy and picky client with an amazing house in a good Jewish community area. He was very straight forward: “Peter, how can I trust you? I asked around friends, neighbours, the synagogue and nobody knows who Peter Lane is. We know Chiko, Daniel Morris, Ezra and nothing about you.” Well, I said, you have eyes and you see what I do, you either like or dislike it. Then he said, “for us photography is very important and we can trust Jewish wedding photographers and videographers, proven and experienced Simcha professionals, I like what I see but still difficult to trust you and book you. If they were not booked already we wouldn’t take this meeting”. Nothing I can help with, I replied. And then he stood up, “Peter to be honest I can’t book you but as our Simcha coordinator Dan said: “I guarantee for Peter with my life”, I’ve never heard of someone to guarantees with his life, especially in our community. I said, me neither! That was the BEST recommendation I’ve ever had. He shook my hand and prepaid immediately.

Highly recommended Jewish wedding photographer and videographer

On the day, Dan came to me and said: “this client is very very fussy, if he likes you you’ll have plenty of work, but if not happy the whole community will know that. After his first son Bar Mitzvah I was pre-booked for the younger one and got 19 referrals for next year.” It was a great Bar Mitzvah party, really huge and fancy. Lasers, production, decoration, fancy Central London event venue … We ended with about 3000 photos and everything was filtered, edited and delivered to the client 2 days after the party.

I was in the parents house with Dan, celebrating his dad’s birthday and at 11pm I got 3 messages in a sequence. I saw the name and I thought. So late messages in a raw he is not happy. I said, Dan, you open it. He read it and smiled. Peter, this is it! This is what we live for. The client is over the moon. First message was all possible ways to say Thank you in English. Second: “Peter, you and your team are another league, better than anyone. The whole family is so happy that we can’t express with words.” Third message: “If your are free for that date (3 years in advance) mark it as booked for both photo and video. I know how hard is to find professional photographers and videographers and I want to be sure that you’ll be the one. If already booked we’ll choose another day.” Dan added “they booked me too”. That was so awesome!

Bar Mitzvah Creative Photo Session in London

Bat & Bar Mitzvah Creative Photography Photo Session in London

Bar & Bat Mitzvah boys and girls in Israel enjoy a photo shoot day prior to the actual party. The album is the tangible result from the photo session. An amazing practice not very popular in UK.

We decided to boost the trend on the local market and same time to attract more Bar Mitzvah clients from Israel. And here we are. We spent an amazing sunny day with Shei-el and her amazing family. Shei-el’s mom was worried about weather forecast, rain, wind, shooting permitions … the usual stuff that we deal with in London. Luckily the weather that day was really awesome, they brought the shiny Israeli weather with themselves and again luckily we werern’t stopped a sigle time from the authorities asking for permitions.

Prior the shoot we synchronised the route and shooting options – Buckingham Palace, St James Park, Big Ben, Parliament, Westminster Abbey and London Eye. Sunny, a little windy and lots of fun together.

Same they 500+ photos were edited and sent to the family. Happy clients and friends forever! 🙂

We’re happy to organise a creative Bar Mitzvah photography walk for your Bar Mitzvah boy or girl. As an add on we also offer similar experience with video as the final options are either a short highlight in a docu-mode edit or a cinematic Hollywood like trailer with a scripted idea and scenario, which may be a part of the actual Bar Mitzvah day video.

Feel free to contact us with your requests, wishes and ideas.

Best Bat & Bar Mitzvah albums.

Enjoy our collection of top class hand made Italian Bar Mitzvah albums. Hundreds of options to choose from.

The Bar Mitzvah album

The album options are practically endless as you can see in our Wedding Albums section, and this one here is just a drop in the lake.

We work with the best world class manufacturers offering hand made work with the best materials and best longevity. Your album will be designed by professional and experienced magazine designer and we’ll use an interactive online service allowing you to monitor the process and comment your wishes. We don’t offer online make yourself albums as the quality, ask and we’ll explain why.

The exact album price is formed by the following variables:

– album provider/brand/quality, durability and longevity
– type of paper
– number of pages
– type of cover and cover material
– size

All that put together makes the total so, the best time to discuss it is after the event, because only then we all know how many photos, pages, etc. will be chosen. We can meet after the event and go thru all that options together and choose the best one for you covering the desired budget.

To book the day 1/3 of the agreed total amount is required, and the balance due up to 20 days before the shoot – cash is OK too.
