It might surprise you to learn that Bar Mitzvah’s are some of our favorite events to cover. The enthusiasm and excitement is palpable, and it brings a while new energy to running about hunting for photos. It was no different with Max’s Bar Mitzvah blast at the Bethesda Naval Bowling Center in Maryland. The space was divided up into a few different rooms with everyone having a blast pretty much everywhere you looked. While Felipe met with Max’s family earlier in the week to capture some family formals and recreate some ceremony photos, it was the Felipe & Erik team on the evening of the party.

Responsible for much of the event’s success was the always wonderful We Plan You Party pulling the strings. One of our favorite vendors, Five-0-Air was there too doing what they do best–making bangin’ airbrush art, while Good Vibrations spun the tunes.
