Bree on Broadway | epic michigan bat mitzvah!

OMG, where to even start with this one!  This was my first event back after having Mabel, and truthfully I was a little nervous.  But I could NOT have asked for a better group of people to work with or a more fabulous party to shoot!  This party was styled to the nines by the fabulous Dee Dee Hoffman and her crew.  The ballroom at the Book Cadillac was virtually transformed into a European flower market/Broadway extravaganza.  Amazing!!

I’ll start with Bree’s lifestyle session, which we photographed the month prior.  The concept was to recreate several well-known Broadway  playbills starring the bat mitzvah girl, and also to re-imagine some ads to display throughout the ballroom.  I shot Bree in-studio and worked with Barb Mandell on the graphic design.  I still cannot get over how great these turned out!  broadwayI seriously can’t even pick a favorite of these ones!fashion themed bat mitzvahand now, the main event! broadway bat mitzvahBree and fam – what can I say?!  You guys sure know how to throw a party.  Thanks for being an absolute delight to work with!  xo
