Black & White and/or Color Mitzvah Photography
By viewing the finished albums we have provided for our real clients, you will have a very realistic idea of what we can provide for you. (of course viewing the real thing is better)
Our commitment to 'truth-in-advertising' doesn't allow us to engage in the deceitful practice of posting the 'best-of-the-best' (top 1%) of an events enhanced images on an exaggerated blog that ultimately leaves you disappointed in the other 99% of the images delivered. Enjoy!

Your child's B'nei Mitzvah (plural for Mitzvah to include: Bar, Bat, B'nai or B'not) is a major lifecycle event so the photography shouldn't be left to your friends. When it is over, the moments remembered on your special Mitzvah day past, will be shared and remembered through the superior photographs and albums that last.
Don't compromise on the quality or quantity of professional photographs taken on your Mitzvah day. You will be glad you chose an experienced Professional Photographer to capture the timelessness of your B'nei Mitzvah and years later your family and your child will be pleased that you preserved your treasured remembrances in an Heirloom PhotoArt ® Storybook Mitzvah album worthy of your special day. We take several extra archival steps in the production of each album page to insure heirloom permanence. We have photographed HUNDREDS of Mitzvahs and have the experience, equipment and know-how to insure your dreams become reality. Everything we do at Dan Harris PhotoArt is designed to help you look your best --Guaranteed! From our Equipment choices to our Lighting options and Retouching decisions even our Art enhancements are all geared to bring out the best possible!
A Bat or Bar Mitzvah is a much more intense event than a wedding, not all 'wedding photographers' make good Mitzvah photographers. It's important to find a photographer that not only captures the images you want but also has the personality style to insure your special day is filled with pleasant memories. As you prepare for that magic day, beware of your relative, associate or friend that may try to convince you they can play "Bar Mitzvah photographer for a day." Trusting your memories to the inexperienced won't save anything but usually comes with a very high price. Professional photography isn't expensive ~it's priceless.
Your child's special day will be filled with unforgettable moments that you'll want to relive and share. No matter what your budget or design style, as Professional Photographers it is our mission to provide you with the products and services to fulfill your every expectation. We include complete retouching on every image at no additonal cost.
Don't settle for an unfinished homework assignment. Lazy photographers who only take snaps and burn them to a CD/USB are not much better than your friends with a camera. Why would you pay good money to someone to only do a small part of the job? A CD/USB is NOT a finished product. It is not archival and may not be able to produce the finished products you hoped for in the first place. A photographer who doesn't include: complete retouching, editing, digital re-mastering, archival Heirloom PhotoArt ® prints and professionally-designed albums --all fully GUARANTEED-- is incapable of insuring your success and won't be able to bring your dream project to fruition.
If you hire one company to take digital pictures and another one to edit and retouch those images and then another one to print prints and then another one to design an album and then another one to print the album, there's a very high potential that they will each blame the other for any problems or quality issues and in the end you won't have any recourse for getting the job done right. In the end you will have wasted a lot of money. That's why we provide complete packages and services and guarantee ALL our finished products. --We insure your success!
Preference in photography styles can be very personal and subjective. We work to capture what really happened rather than just what the photographer made happen. We don't forget what the whole day is really all about. We specialize in photo-journalistic (realistic) style images captured in color and/or black & white film, We also provide family formal group portraits. Our flexibility insures that you get exactly what you want. It's YOUR mitzvah, have it YOUR way! Base your decision on what YOU like and who has an artistic connection and adaptability to give you what YOU want.
No two mitzvahs are alike just like no two photographers are alike. We work closely with you (before, during and after the event) to insure that I create what is important to you with a pleasant personality style that enhances your day. Several of our customers have said working with us is 'like having a friend in the photography business.' We won't try to impress you with fancy titles, pretty websites, award ribbons, stylish clothing, purchased 'degrees' and fancy 'retail' locations because they all mean very little if the end result isn't what YOU wanted.
It would be better to look at their 'typical' photos then you will have a more realistic view of what they will be able to do for you. You can view some of our recent work: www.OurFavoritePhotos.com. We want to show you our honest work from real clients, not faked sessions or unreal samples.
Call or E-mail me to see if I have your date available and to set up an appointment to see some actual albums. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss great photography.
