Jamie’s Bat Mitzvah

I had the pleasure of photographing Jamie Koffman’s Bat Mitzvah ceremony on Saturday at Temple De Hirsch Sinai in Bellevue. I couldn’t have had a better family and Rabbi to work with then the Koffmans and Rabbi Daniel A. Septimus for my first Bat Mitzvah! Jamie has a great spirit and attitude and didn’t seem overwhelmed by the magnitude of the day. She had a big smile on her face most of the day. A great celebration followed the ceremony at Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant in Bellevue. Premier Entertainment did an awesome job with the music and entertainment! The dance floor never got cold, as kids and adults both kept the action going until closing time! Scott Eklund

    WOW!!! Did we pick the right photographer for this event. I have always been stressed about being photographed and having sessions with my family. Scott a great person to put us at ease – I did not once worry that something would not be covered during the event. And he did things so casually and with such humor. And, I have never been so happy with photos in my life. Now, I can sit back and relax and sign him up for the next 3 Bat Mitzvahs to come . . .

  2. Hi Scott,

    Your photos are beautiful!! I’d love to get some copies of the cake for my portfolio.

    I couldn’t agree with you more-the Koffmans were wonderful to work with!

    Thank you again for sharing these and I hope to work with you again in the future.

    Warm regards,

    Scott – You did a phenomenal job of shooting this event.The lighting of
    the party portion with all the neon is awesome. Love the still black & white

    These are truly the best B’Nai Mitzvah pictures I have seen from a service at TDHS Bellevue. Not only did your photographer capture the special moments, but also did an amazing job at displaying the beauty of our sanctuary. I may have to call them for Nate’s Bar Mitzvah in 2012. What a special evening it was and how wonderful that you have these awesome photos to remember it by.
