Barmitzvah Photography



a solemn ceremony held in the synagogue, usually on Saturday morning, to admit as an adult member of the Jewish community a Jewish boy 13 years old who has successfully completed a prescribed course of study in Judaism.

I love taking pictures at your simcha. Each one is a unique event with special moments happening all over.

There is no doubt that each function is an exciting, fun and vibrant place to be.

From the moment we first talk, to the delivery and beyond I am here to help you.

Working with you at every step to make sure you have the pictures you want from someone you trust. Many of my previous clients are now friends.

At first we talk on the phone and then I get to know you and you get to know me.

The relationship is key to ensuring relaxed and genuine moments in your session.

I know many of the DJs, caterers, dancers, event organizers and others that will work on your special event and I work with them prior to the event to make sure everything runs smoothly.

One the big day there is nothing that goes unmissed.

With you in the thick of the party capturing every single moment.

I will often take over 1800 pictures at a function, from this the best ones are selected, edited and delivered to you on both a private password protected web gallery and for a little extra a memory stick.

I also create a slideshow of some of the best pictures set to music and there are options to purchase books or albums of the memories of your big weekend.

 If you have an event coming up, do yourself a favour and book him as early as you can. He made us feel like his most important clients throughout - something which some other photographers don’t always manage. I now understand why, when my wife first got the date of the event, she phoned Gander to get it in their diary before phoning me to get it in mine! Six stars out of five. Thank you so much Julian.

Julian is amazing. Pleasure to deal with. He worked so hard taking outstanding pictures for us and captured every moment beautifully. Highly recommend and have already booked to use him again for our next Simcha.


•Being a DJ/MC/Event Planner, I have worked with Julian on many occasions. Not only is his work outstanding, he is a pleasure to work with. I can't tell you how important it is that your DJ/MC has a good team of suppliers who get on and work well together. I always look forward to working with Julian. – Matt Frankel
