I booked and second shot this bar mitzvah in Westchester County through an ad on Craigslist. It was a journey to get there from Queens, NY because I sold my car only weeks prior. There was also a medical emergency during the night that added an odd twist but luckily, the person in question is all good and the rest of the evening turned out OK.
This was my first time shooting an event of its kind and also shadowing a seasoned photographer. It was great to pick her brain and get some experience under my belt. Even better is that I was giving positive feedback from the head photographer who hired me, so here's to hoping he reaches out for more work in the future!
