Emma's Bat Mitzvah

Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Emma's Bat Mitzvah in Dallas at Temple Emanu El and the Aloft Hotel. Emma did a fabulous job as she was called to the Torah in the morning and Cory of Cocktails and Caviar turned the Aloft Hotel Dallas into an amazing "Downtown" scene for Emmy's night with food trucks, graffiti and amazing lighting. Here's a peek.

 Meet the beautiful, talents and athletic Emma. We did a photo session in Deep Ellum a few months before her party so we would have some photos of Emma to decorate the venue. She was a fabulous model.
 Saturday afternoon we got the the Temple before the service to take a few photos with family and the Torah.
 Emma's sweet grandfather presented her with her Tallit.
 Emma with mom and her siblings. What a beautiful family.
Finally Emma in front of the stained glass at the temple and then in the neon lights at her party.
While Emma was reading from the Torah at the Temple I went over to the Aloft Hotel to take some photos of the gorgeous setup for her party. This is the main room bathed in blue and purple light with a "food truck" parked alongside the dance floor.
 The first room you saw when you walked down the stairs had lots of color and a few giant prints of Emma on the walls. The adult food trucks were in the next room and then the main room had picnic tables witht eh dance floor and the kids food trucks. So much beautiful colorful light!
 The main entrance had her theme on it in graffiti, there were gorgeous flowers on the tables and the chairs were lit with colorful light as well.
I love how Cory used a few of my photos of Emma huge as decor pieces. They looked amazing! And Emma had me custom design a guest book with her photos in it for people to sign as they entered the party.
 After the service several buses brought the kids over from the Temple and Emma finally got to make her grand entrance.
She stood on the speakers and sang  the Macklemore and Ryan's "Downtown"
 There was lots of dancing including a sweet father daughter dance.
 And a fabulous confetti filled Hora.
 As the guests left they were treated to cake balls on the table below another gorgeous photo of Emma.
 Congratulations on your Bat Mitzvah Emma. I'll have the rest of your photos ready soon.
