Sammie’s Bat Mitzvah | Beth El Synagogue | St Clair Country Club


Sammie’s Bat Mitzvah was such a fun party! But lets back up a little… there is a build up to these things. Our journey together began with a few pre-service portraits at Beth El Synagogue. The gentlemen from Nate Sherer Video and I were waiting in the foyer as the family pulled up. Sammie’s parents, her two brothers and all four of her grandparents came to join in the festivities. How lucky is this young lady to be surrounded by so much love! Sammie’s mom had the biggest brightest smile on her face for two straight days. Actually it was probably longer than that, but I only spent 2 days with this sweet family! After all the portraits were taken Sammie got in one last practice session. I stayed to grab a few shots of the Bat Mitzvah girl on the Bimah, and then I slipped away. I wasn’t there for the actual service, but I’m told that Sammie did amazing!

On Saturday evening we moved onto the celebration at St Clair Country Club. It was one heck of a shindig. Shari Zatman with Perfectly Planned by Shari pulled out all of the stops. The room was dripping with sparkles and coated in Tiffany blue. It was spectacular! We had a second portrait session on the back patio. A little rain wasn’t going to dampen this party one little bit. Once the party really got under way, Sammie’s friends and family danced and danced and danced to the musical stylings of Glyde Productions. I had no idea that Sammie’s father was going to be the life of the party. He had the best time dancing up a storm and embarrassing his kids. Bonus!

It was one of those event that you just didn’t want to end. We had the best time celebrating with Sammie and her amazing family. Thank you so much Scott and Stacey for choosing RTP to capture your memories!





My second shooter Mackenzie will go to any length to get the shot she wants. I turned around and she was on the floor!
