For me each family is unique and I want to create original pieces that they will cherish for years to come. I always create images with the next generation in mind, I want their children to look at their images and cherish them as much as they do. Each family brings their own story therefore each wedding, or Mitzvah is not just an event but rather a cluster of moments they can relieve through my imagery. My goal is to capture the essence of their event and those unseen moments.
ENGAGEMENTS. WEDDINGS. MITZVAHS. LOVE.
On the day of your Wedding or Bar/Bat Mitzvah I want to capture your instants, your memories, your images. I love the moments that happen when no one thinks the camera is pointed at them; the genuine connections people have surrounding such a happy time in their lives. If you smile, just once, while looking at your images, and pause for just a moment to remember how you felt right then, right there in that instant when I captured this moment in time then I will have been successful.
I contacted Josh Barry Photography initially because during the album creation process for my last child's mitzvah we experienced more problems than any one person should have to deal with. I knew this time around I wanted someone with the same creative nature, knew how to think outside the box and could do magic digitally with the album. I resorted to my best known way to find someone, the internet and Josh's website and I crossed paths and I was instantly hooked. I was concerned and needed someone honest, whose business was sound, and knew and understood what we had experienced previously. After gathering information about Josh Barry photography I decided to invest with the Josh Barry Photography because of my meeting with him. He made the effort to come to Olney to meet with me and my friend and showed us samples of his work. He was excited to break into this area and really listened to what I wanted and needed. During Zach's Bar Mitzvah my family and I were treated absolutely wonderfully while working with Josh Barry Photography The first time I saw my portraits I was floored. He was able to capture so many wonderful moments at my son's Bar Mitzvah and everyone has commented on how absolutely beautiful the pictures are. I know this sounds cliché - but we wanted to work with someone that would help us create memories to last a life time. He was really able to capture the entire mood of the event. Josh Barry Photography did that for us. Besides my wedding many moons ago, this was our third Mitzvah and by far the best experience we have had with a photographer. In addition, seeing him at many more events in our area these past several months, we feel like Josh is a part of our family! To anyone who was thinking of investing in photography for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah with Josh Barry Photography, but wasn't sure, I recommend him to everyone, closing my recommendation with TRUST ME and that is not an easy thing to say! Josh Barry is one unique and creative individual. It was a pleasure having him as a part of the team that helped make my son's Bar Mitzvah a very special day. It has been an extra special treat to continue to see him and have fun with him at all our friend’s mitzvahs prior, after and still to come. Harriet Turkheimer
