Ira Casel Photography

Why Should We Hire You?


That's really the most important question of all, isn't it? You should hire to me to photograph your child's bar or bat mitzvah because no photographer will work harder for you. I'll be completely attentive to you and your family throughout the entire process, from the first meeting until the delivery of your album and prints. During the party, you’ll likely find that you don’t really notice me but when you need me, I’ll be there, capturing your beautiful moments.

I understand how important your child’s bar or bat mitzvah is to you. My son’s and daughter’s mitzvahs were a two of the most joyous and meaningful days of my life. I’ll do everything possible to ensure you are able to take the greatest pleasure in your celebration.


I'll always strive to make things lighthearted, easy and fun. Planning and hosting a bar/bat mitzvah can be stressful and I feel it’s my job to help minimize any difficulties that arise along the way. Whether grandparents show up late for family portraits, someone forgot the tallit at home, the weather’s not cooperating or the spot you wanted to use for pre-party portraits isn’t available, it won’t matter. I’ll be there for you and will handle whatever comes up. I’ll tell you not to worry and just make it happen. We’ll still make beautiful, emotional, dramatic pictures that will make you feel the love joy that you felt on your child's mitzvah day.
