Bat Mitzvah Photographer Los Angeles GoShiggyGo Marissa Mallow Beverly Hills Four Seasons Off The Charts

GoShiggyGo Photography had the joyous opportunity to photograph and celebrate Marissa's Bat Mitzvah on December 21st, 2013, however,  unfortunately, it was bitter-sweet.  

As a treat and bonus to Marissa's spectacular Bat Mitzvah at The Four Seasons Hotel located in Beverly Hills, we decided to create a video.  A video including testimonials from Marissa's friends and family.

After post-processing the photographs, my assistant George and I got to edit the video.  We uploaded the video and presented the Mallow family with the video in the beginning of January 2014. What George and I didn't know was that just three days' after Marissa's Bat Mitzvah on December 21st, her 
dear grandfather, Michael's beloved father passed away.  A picture paints a thousand words.  A video on the other hand, also adds special elements to the "story," with the added feature of moving pictures and audio, in particular people's voices. Timeless. Priceless. Memories captured forever. 

Please scroll down to view the video. Thank you. Shalom.

Marissa Mallow's Bat Mitzvah
December 21st, 2013

Location: Temple Israel Hollywood
The Four Seasons Hotel, Beverly Hills

(Above: One stipulation, as prescribed by the Rabbi was
during the service we could only photograph from the 
balcony of Temple Israel Hollywood.
We were not allowed to use any flash.
No problem.  
Solution: We  brought a tele-photo lens
and remarkably it captured a beautiful "wide angle"
of Marissa's service.)
