At Ikona Photography we can create beautiful memories of your most important family events. From Bar and Bat Mitzvahs to Weddings, our creative focus and journalistic approach allow for the creation of images of your special event by documenting spontaneous moments, while achieving artistic, yet modern, compositions.
Bar and Bat Mitzvah
We understand the importance and significance of this event, and the typical photographic coverage includes two distinct parts:
Before the Celebration Day: we encourage photographs taken at the Synagogue a few days before the event, as typically no photography is allowed during service. We will create images ranging from family groups to beautiful portraits capturing the importance of the moment. We will work with you to determine the best time for this.
During the Celebration Day: We are ready to create beautiful images of the festivities! From traditional parties, complete of candle lighting, to the most contemporary, we will be there to capture dances, laughter and joyful tears! If you are one of the lucky few that can have photographs taken during service, we are available for that as well.
Contact us for a personalized consultation so that we can discuss how to best approach your Bar and Bat Mitzvah photographic needs.
From the romanticism of the engagement session, to the excitement of the “getting ready”, to the ritual of the ceremony and finally the enjoyment of the reception we will capture all your special moments to create timeless photographic memories. With our creativity we will produce contemporary images with that unique glamorous and sophisticated look that our customers are looking for.
Before your Special Day. Due to the unique nature of each wedding and ceremony, it is our priority to customize each solution to your specific needs. In order to maximize your experience with us we will start with a telephone consultation followed by an in-person meeting in our office to discuss your specific photographic and budget requirements and the different options available to you.
You will also be able to include a “getting ready” session, either at the location of the event or at the bride’s home, a photo session at the rehearsal dinner and to add extra hours of service at the day of the event: we will always have time because the entire day is dedicated to you.
During Your Special Day. Just relax and enjoy your day! We will make sure to capture all the important moments of the ceremony, all the special people at the reception and the joy of the entire day! Our experience in journalistic photography will allow us to blend in with your guests and capture every moment and every person without being noticed. We will also create fantastic images of you as a couple, capturing the connection and the emotions that exist.
After your Event.
When your images are ready, we will contact you to schedule an ordering session in our new viewing room. Your beautifully finished and digitally enhanced pictures will be displayed on a 50’’ screen. We will also choose the pictures for your photo book. We custom design the pages in our photo-books, so that each album is unique, and you will see the book layout, and approve it, before it goes to print. We will also provide the images from your event on a CD or DVD so you can share the images with your loved ones..
Since at this time you will finalize your choices, we require that all the decision-making parties will be present at the ordering session.
