Irvine Bat Mitzvah Photography : Dana

Bat Mitzvah’s are always so much fun and Dana’s was no exception, her Bat Mitzvah was a perfect day in every way! Hearing Dana read from the torah at University Synagogue in Irvine as she became a Bat Mitzvah was such a joy to hear, and you could tell she really put her heart into the service. At the celebration at Pacific Club Newport Beach everyone in attendance had a lovely time and the Witkin family and Danielle from With Fresh Eyes did an amazing job putting everything together for the day. It simply was a joy to be included in such a special day!

Thank you to everyone included below who worked so hard to make this Mitzvah special!

Orange County Wedding Photographers : Karen & Kenny

The magic of true love can always be found, and Karen and Kenny are a wonderful example of finding love and partnership when the timing was right! Seeing this love was a true joy for everyone in attendance of this amazing wedding including us. Thank you to Karen, Kenny, and Danielle for having us photograph this very special day, and making us part of the family for the day.

Planning a wedding is always a labor of love, for all of us in this event industry would not be in it unless we truly loved what we did. Yet this wedding was something that was planned straight from the heart for it was the wedding of the Mother of Danielle of With Fresh Eyes event planning. This wedding was so warm and inviting and every detail was absolutely perfect thanks to Danielle and everyone who poured their hearts into making this wedding so magnificent.

Orange County Bar Mitzvah Photographers – Alex

With confidence and pride Alex became a Bar Mitzvah at Congregation Shir Ha-Ma’alot  and led his friends and family in a beautiful Sabbath services.  The Gillman family is so much fun and so loving and that you can see they shared that fun-loving spirit with everyone in attendance of this joyous occasion! Here at Ron Levy Photography we can honestly say we had a blast photographing this amazing event!

The religious sentiment of the day, turned into an off the charts party for Alex that night at Hotel Irvine. Now we have the privilege of attending a lot of parties and they are always filled with joy, but this party in particular was the essence of just a fun party. Everyone was dancing the night away, and the candid photos we captured of people having fun really show that. Alex was a super star singing and dancing the entire night, it was such a great thing to see. Also we have to say the cool factor of this event was evident, with the graffiti urban cool theme, and fences and graffiti walls as decor it was just perfect for his event!

Orange County Bat Mitzvah Photographers : Maggie

The beautiful voice of lovely Maggie filled Temple Bat Yahm Newport Beach with joy and pride, as she became a Bat Mitzvah. The entire main sanctuary was filled with family and friends there to support Maggie and the Sonenshine family for this memorable occasion. Having the honor of being part of this occasion brings great pride to Ron Levy Photography.

A magical Mid Summer Nights Dream was created at the “The Hangar” at the Orange County Fair Grounds and Event Center in front of everyone in attendance of Maggie’s unbelievable Bat Mitzvah Party! As you entered the room you felt as if you were entering a giant enchanted forest instead of an event space. This inviting mood of the room set the perfect tone for an amazing night. Everyone in attendance enjoyed a night filled with dancing, sweet treats, and lots of fun.


A special thanks goes out to Danielle Staffieri of With Fresh Eyes who made sure every last detail of this event was perfect, to all the talented vendors included below, and especially to the Sonenshine family who filled this night with love and made it so fantastic.

Orange County Event Photographer – Merage JCC Celebration Ball

This weekend we had the pleasure of photographing the Merage Jewish Community Center Orange County Celebration Ball Celebration Ball. The theme of the night was “Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world”, and we could not agree with that theme more, that is why it was our honor to offer the thing we know best and photograph this fundraising ball. The night honored Adrienne and Rick Matros for their charitable impact on the community, and funds benefit the Merage JCC and Aronoff Preschool where our daughter Liora goes to school. It was a great night and a few of the highlights from the night are below.
