Jason was such a pleasure to work with! My son had a blast during the 'sign in board' session and our entire family enjoyed working with him during our synagogue shoot and our celebration. He had great, creative ideas during our photo sessions. The finished product is amazing! It will be challenging to choose my favorite photos, they are all incredible! I highly recommend using him for any event.

We were very pleased to work with Jason Weil for our son's Bar Mitzvah photos. He's a first rate photographer. He was very easy to work with and he worked well with our guests. He took the time to listen to what we wanted; suggested many great ideas; was creative in his photos; and worked extremely hard at both the Bar Mitzvah and the reception. He also took informal shots of our son before the event which added a great deal.

Jason is great to work with. Our venue was on the small side and had low ceilings, and yet the pictures do not depict that at all. We were really happy with the pictures he got.

We used Jason for both our children's bar/bat mitzvahs. He is great to work with. Jason is very personable. He always has great ideas but also takes our ideas in to account. Everyone who has seen our pictures has loved them. Jason also has a lot of patience and always speaks calmly to guests that may not be cooperative. He is truly a pleasure to work with.

Jason did 3 shoots for us -- a casual shoot in Glen Echo park which became two sign-in books at the reception, a sanctuary shoot, and an evening reception shoot, and we are thrilled with the photos. Working on putting together an album, now. He has a great way of interacting with teens, in particular. I looked at several vendors, and everyone who came recommended to me could all show me great finished work product, but I wanted someone who was going to be a fun person to work with, who was going to get along with twin teenagers and a 10 year old, and not have them be annoyed with him. Whatever photographer I chose was going to be "in our face" for anywhere between 9 and 11 total hours, when all was said and done. We really liked working with him. He'd take about 30 shots, and then take a goofy one -- which took the edge off the formality. Kept them going. Assuming the album turns out as I want it, I'm booking him for my youngest daughter's party in 2016. The only criticism I have is that we had 14 tables at our party, and he missed a few table shots. At my next party, I will give him a list of all the tables and have him check them off as he goes, just to make sure. Other than that, I am really very, very pleased with the photos and the memories. Too many good ones from which to choose!!

This was a second time using Jason's services. He did a great for both of our events and if there were a third, we would use him again. He is very creative, professional that gets the shot. Jason is easy to work with and knows his craft well.

Jason did a great job. He was able to hunt the family members and friends down so we could get the group pictures we wanted. The pictures turned out great, and he did a great job capturing special moments.

From the custom sign-in board photo shoot done about 6 months prior to her Bat Mitzvah through the "ceremony" session, family photos and the celebration/part photos - Jason was amazing! He truly captured our daughter in her best light and captured all of the feelings of excitement, pride and love that we had on that special day! The photos are beautiful - all 700+ of them! We have received countless compliments on the pictures with most of our guests noting that they can't believe how many photos were taken when no one noticed the photographer - he was everywhere without being at all intrusive. We would highly recommend Jason as a photographer for ANY EVENT!

Jason is a great photographer. He is easy to work with - he understands what you want done and is very reasonably priced. We really enjoyed working with him. He caught all the shots and they were great pictures! and there were so many of them too. He knows all the right questions to ask too. We are definitely using him again - for all types of events and occasions.

We could not have asked for a better photographer! We just received our album and are so pleased with the beautiful pictures we now have of Courtney's bat mitzvah. Jason and Natasha are both so easy to work with and the pictures are gorgeous! We have already booked him for our next daughter's bat mitzvah :)

The pictures are SO beautiful. I love your use of the natural light, the color of the trees, the candid pictures of us talking, pictures of Gabriella laughing...it is all wonderful.
I just had to thank you again for your time and talent.

Aaron's Bar Mitzvah pictures were exactly what we asked for. We wanted pictures that not only told the story of the Bar Mitzvah, but also captured Aaron's fun, crazy personality. We could not have been happier with the results!!! Jason, you did an amazing job - thank you for the memories that will last a lifetime.

Jason is wonderful. He did a great job on my daughter's Bat Mitzvah pictures and we really enjoyed working with him. He is easy to tak to so that you can let him know exactly what you want and he doesn't try and do the big "upsell". He listened to what I wanted and worked within my budget. I would definitely recommend him!

Jason is very creative with his photography. He worked well with our son and friends at the party, capturing the fun, and we loved the more "formal" portraits of our family. Highly recommended!!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the beautiful pictures you took at Shayna's Bat Mitzvah.
I was very pleased at your unique approach to the standard family photographs on the Bimah - they were fun but held the moment with definite respect and dignity.
I liked your approach to various subjects with the fish eye lense - the sanctuary, the dancing, and the kids goofing off. I was also very impressed with the pictures of the candle lighting ceremony - you captured the sparkle and glow of the candles on Shayna's dress and the smile on her face preserving the moment beautifully.
In addition to being excellent at your craft, I was very impressed with your ability to capture all phases of the event without being intrusive. Your extremely polite nature, fun personality, and ability to interact pleasantly with all age groups made "an invited guest" at our mitzvah.

I just wanted to thank you again for your amazing work on Allison's Bat Mitzvah - from the sign in board photos and the bimah photos to the party - the quality was superb. All of the photographs that you took were wonderful and our biggest chore was choosing those we wanted to include in our album. You have the unique ability to take great photos and create an amazing album that will be forever cherished.

Jason was great to work with. He really worked with my family when unforeseen circumstances made us change our scheduled portrait day. Really listened to what type of pictures our family wanted. I barely knew he was at our event and got tons of fantastic pictures! Would hire him again any time.

Thank you for making Jared's day so special on Tuesday. He is still talking about how much fun he had with you. As you know, picture taking can be a daunting process for kids. You definately validated our decision to hire you to take Jared's pictures for his Bar Mitzvah.

Jason and his wife are an absolute pleasure to do business with. The pictures turned out great, and we loved the personal touch added. We absolutely adored the signing board used for Jordan's Bat Mitzvah. It captured the true essence of her. We would also like to mention the turnaround time to receive the final product was remarkable.
Thank you for our memories.
JULIA’S BAT MITZVAH

I can't begin to thank you enough for all of the wonderful work you did for me on my daughter Julia's September 2008 Bat Mitzvah! I remember 1 full year before her date, when I happened to see the album you did for my friend's son's Bar Mitzvah. That was it! I was sold, there and then! I never interviewed another photographer after I saw that fabulous album, and sure enough, the album you did for us was just as, if not even more, fantastic! Each page of the album uniquely picks up colors and even suggests the textures of clothing, decorations, flowers, and scenery. The album really reflects the personality of the Bat Mitzvah girl and the party!
You worked tirelessly with me and were happy to hear any and all of my suggestions! Any time I called or emailed, you were back in touch with me almost immediately. Best of all, you put my daughter at ease immediately, and she had lots of fun with the casual photo shoot you did a few weeks prior to the Bat Mitzvah. My husband is not a real picture-taking kind of guy and you really made the obligatory, posed pictures painless and you got him to laugh...a lot!
All of my guests commented about how good you both were with the kids and adults at the party and how they never felt like you were in the way. I should also add that I couldn't believe how quickly I got my finished album. Thank you Jason and Natalia for such a wonderful experience! I look forward to working with you again in the future!

Jason and Natasha:
We were so happy with the work you did for us on Rachael’s Bat Mitzvah, that we wanted to work with you on Sara’s. We think your creative touch combined with the digital photo album produced a beautiful memory. We enjoyed the photos at the temple. You have a very good eye that catches the emotion and the moment. We are looking forward to working with you on future events.

It is apparent when you first meet Jason that his entire focus is based on what is best for you. During the shoot his photographic style presents in all areas. Beginning with photos leading up to the event to the last pictures after, his directorial abilities with family and friends are gentle yet persuasive resulting in strikingly beautiful pictures.
Jason’s pictures reflect and describe human warmth, feeling, and perfect composition. One does not have to ask for those special pictures – they have been taken. Jason’s photographic excellence is truly a gift that will be shared with you.

We want to thank you again for the wonderful job you did for us for our son’s Bar Mitzvah. Your professional approach, generosity of spirit and time, and excellent “eye” resulted in superb panoply of pictures to help us remember that special weekend.
