6 Best Wedding Photography Locations in San Francisco

 

 

 Lucky enough to be planning your wedding in the San Francisco area?  You certainly have many choice locations for some amazing bridal and couple portraits.  I’m including a list of some of my favorite destinations here.

 

Coit Tower stands atop Telegraph Hill.  Gorgeous murals decorate the inside spiral staircase, and the top observation deck offers 360-degree views of the bay and city.  On the grounds around the tower, there is a wonderful stone walkway that leads up to the tower, with lush greenery behind it and quaint street lamps along the path.

Alamo Square is among one of San Francisco’s iconic neighborhoods with views of the famous “Painted Ladies” along Postcard Row.  The spacious park features abundant lawns, drought resistant and pollinator-friendly flowerbeds (meaning they should look gorgeous and colorful regardless of weather conditions), and gorgeous full low-hanging willows. Views of the Golden Gate Bridge, park benches and fountains make wonderful backdrops for portraits.  And for those more whimsical couples, I love the Shoe Garden!

Hawk Hill is part of the Marin Headlands and provides beautiful ocean views of southwestern San Francisco.  While most weddings aren’t taking place at sunrise, the view of the sun hitting the fog as it hangs over the water can be nothing short of amazing, and depending on the weather similar images of this mystical feeling can be captured as a beautiful backdrop for wedding pictures or pre-wedding photography portraits. I will note the parking in this area is limited and it is not easily accessible for those with mobility challenges, so it may be best suited for small elopements and portraits rather than larger ceremonies.

Cavallo Point in Sausalito offers everything from memorable proposal sites to magnificent comprehensive wedding packages complete with a day spa, lodging for guests, ceremony and reception packages.  Located at the northern foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, views of the structure can be seen from the property with trees and clouds framing its rust-orange color. I love Cavallo Point for its diversity in one location - a gorgeous restored historic building, water front property, and city skyline views. It’s quaint, rustic, and elegant all in one!

 

2017-11-10_00032017-11-10_0003

 

Cupid’s Span is a 60-foot-tall public sculpture of a bow and arrow built by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. The sculpture was installed in 2002 along the western waterfront of the San Francisco Bay.  This seems like the quintessential spot for wedding photos capturing views of the bridge and bay.

 

2017-11-10_00062017-11-10_0006

 

Lombard Street is probably the most iconic crooked street with hairpin turns and beautifully landscaped flower beds. Capturing some great wedding photographs here may be a bit of a challenge, as local photographers know tourists come here in droves and getting amazing photographs of a couple without lots of passers-by in the background is an art!

 

2017-11-10_00052017-11-10_0005

 

I suggest choosing locations which are meaningful to you as a couple whether places the two of you have taken dates, or places which reflect your personality as a couple - historic, outdoorsy, creative.  When searching "wedding photographers near me", be sure they are in fact local photographers, as they are familiar with the best places for wedding photos in SF.  Eli Zaturanski photography stands out here in San Francisco, and has much experience in wedding photography that is unique and elegant. While all areas in the San Francisco district are idyllic and are beautiful, these 6 best places for wedding photos in San Francisco will make truly memorable wedding pictures for your wedding day.

What to Wear for your Headshot http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/11/what-to-wear-for-your-headshot What to Wear for your Headshot

 

 

You've made the great career decision to have your headshots professionally done, now the all important issue of what to wear? The first and foremost thing to consider would be your profession. Obviously, a corporate attorney would want to portray a more high end, tailored, and polished look; while a personal trainer would most likely want to highlight their physical attributes with a more athletic wardrobe. Young professionals, while maintaining professionalism, might want to incorporate more hip and edgy pieces to their look. Also, clients that are uniformed, such as nurses, doctors, law enforcement, etc. may want to consider having shots taken in their uniforms.

Get Professional Headshots for your Corporate Team to Increase Brand Value http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/11/get-professional-headshots-for-your-corporate-team-to-increase-brand-value Get Professional Headshots for your Corporate Team to Increase Brand Value

 

 

 

 

In this day and age of social media, every business seems to have a visual presence online. Analytics have shown the "about" page of your website, or meet our team, is often the most visited.  Potential clients today aren’t choosing to work with businesses, they are choosing to work with people.  And having your image compliment the brand you represent, as well as the customers you wish to attract, is so very important.

 

Business headshots should reflect your company’s branding. The image of formal studio portraits would be so valuable for several positions within your company, but maybe you have tended to shy away from this type of photography because you feel it is not the right message of how your business operates. Even companies known for their corporate culture such as Facebook, Amazon, and Google, have professional headshots done, but the style is less formal; including open collared shirts, polos, the absence of neckties, and more natural backgrounds. If relaxed and friendly is the image your business aims to represent, a professional photographer can achieve this style of portraiture.

Images can be repurposed across multiple platforms.  In addition to featuring business headshots on the company’s website, these images can also be used for annual reports, editorials, press-releases, company events, and social media.  Customers will begin to associate the look and feel of your professional team’s headshots and readily recognize your brand.

Consider including the whole team. Depending on the size of your company, you may be featuring only the executive team, such as your CEO, CMO, CTO, and CFO, on your website.  Smaller companies may wish to also highlight support team members that would be interacting with your clients.  In this case, work to have all team members photographed so branding is cohesive, and everyone feels they are a valued member of the team.

Value professional photos of your employees the same way you invest in your logo, your website, and your copy.  The images of your staff members will speak volumes to potential customers letting them know who they will be working with and will draw them in with values such as confidence, positivity, cohesiveness, and professionalism. You get what you pay for. Hiring a professional photographer, namely Eli Zaturanski, is an investment in your brand and your business. Eli has the skills to make your team look authentic and confident, and will often edit the images so everyone looks their best without having the appearance of being heavily retouched. Image-size and quality will ensure the photos are usable in multiple forums, and the photographers also have an archive of their work should something happen to your company's network and local images cannot be retrieved. Let Eli help you achieve the highest level your company can reach.

6 Things You Need to Set up a Bar or Bat Mitzvah http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/10/6-things-you-need-to-set-up-a-bar-or-bat-mitzvah 6 Things You Need to Set Up a Bar or Bat Mitzvah

 

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are an important coming of age ceremony in the Jewish tradition, signifying the recognition that the individual has reached the maturity to own responsibility not only within themselves, but also within the Jewish community. Traditionally, this means a large community celebration honoring the individual that has reached b'nai mitzvah. This celebration involves many details and is something that should be well documented. Here are just a few of those all important details you don't want to forget.

 

  • A Venue- you will need a large space to hold the celebration. Hotels and country clubs are great venues to rent for these type of events.

  • Bar Mitzvah Gift/ Bat Mitzvah Gift- the occasion calls for those attending the celebration to honor the guest with a gift.  Common gifts usually include religious items, books with religious or educational value, savings bonds, or gift cards.

 

  • A Professional Photographer- this is an important milestone event. You will want to have it documented properly. Hire someone with your style, who understands the traditions and knows the most important moments to capture ceremonially, and can also document candid interactions among guests as they enjoy the bar mitzvah party. Be sure and hire a local photographer, such as Eli Zaturanski. Eli is available for San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland and the surrounding areas, and will be sure you get a fantastic collection of images for your photo album.

  • Bar Mitzvah Invitations- you have lots of options in this digital decade.  First, decide if you want to mail out hard copies or go with an email invite.  One this choice is made, find the design you like and send them out to your guest list.

 

  • Food and Drink- decide whether you want traditional Jewish dishes, a theme for food, or a mixture.  It will then be important to hire a caterer in the area that can bring your vision to light.

  • Ceremonial elements- the most important part of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is the religious element. Be sure that you have the crucial people for the ceremonies and traditions in order as well as all of the odds and ends and other details.

6 Holiday Party Ideas for Startups http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/10/12-holiday-party-ideas-for-startups 6 Holiday Party Ideas for Startups

 

         

Who says the office cannot be merry and bright during the holiday season too? A happy and uplifting work environment makes for happier employees and yields higher production. So, take a look at some of these ideas to keep your work place a good place that everyone wants to be as the holidays approach. You can do anything from a grand, formal office party, to something as simple as theme days and prizes. Have fun with this!  It could be a big or small celebration. You could go with the standard formal or cocktail party, where everyone gets together after hours to unwind outside of the work environment. Or, keep it small and during office hours.  

 

·Christmas Games

Everyone loves a good White Elephant or Secret Santa for some gift giving fun, but try incorporating some of these into your office Holiday Party. Try the ornament guessing game, and take your best guess at figuring out how many ornaments decorate the office tree.  Or find Santa’s friends with an office scavenger hunt.  Another fun one is People Bingo.  This one is great in a cocktail setting as well as the office, and a great way to get to know colleagues. Play some card games, like "Cards Against Humanity". That is sure to get everyone laughing!

 

·Food

Everyone loves good food, and it is a great way to gather people together. Food trucks are all the rage, and a fun unique idea for a party. Have a breakfast or brunch. You could even make it an office potluck and lay out the spread in the office lounge. Be sure not to forget the booze. Free drinks are sure to convince colleagues to attend. Have fun with some Craft Cocktails.  Take it a step further and create some office themed drinks that reflect your business. Include a cookie baking contest.  It’s just not the holidays without cookies, the classic holiday food.

 

·Costumes

Try incorporating theme days at the office and have people dress in their best 12 days of Christmas Costumes. Canadian Style is another unique theme idea- think moose, hockey and Mounties for inspiration. A Santa Costume Contest is another fun idea. Encourage participation with some enticing prizes.

 

·Photo Booth and Professional Photography

Bring in a Holiday Themed Photo Booth for some fun.  Be sure to document the office memories along the way, no matter what type of Holiday Party you decide to give. Hiring a professional photographer such as Eli Zaturanski is a great way to be sure to get the best images, while allowing you and your employees to just be guests, and enjoy the festivities. This is also a great opportunity to capture images  of your employees to update the website and show how much fun it is to work for your company.  

 

·Sing Along

No holiday gathering is complete without the holiday classics.  Make it a traditional carol sing along, or jazz it up with some holiday karaoke. Be sure to have documentation of these fun office opportunities by bringing in an event photographer.  They can capture the fun environment and get flattering candid images of the fun in action.

 

·Local Festivities

You could also attend local Holiday Festivities, such as Santa Con, as an office! Have everyone dress up in their best Santa Outfit or other holiday gear and participate in this holiday themed Pub Crawl. Check your local happenings for fun Holiday festivities your office could participate in.

New Business Headshots are a Must http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/10/new-business-headshots-are-a-must New Business Headshots are a Must

 

Business headshots are an important tool.  They need to standout, be different from the standard headshot that most photographers take, where they ask you to come in, stand on the X, and give the exact same image for every client.  Your headshot should catch the eye of the employer and make an impression that says something about you.

 

Online profiles are the way of today.  Whether interacting socially or professionally just about everyone uses some sort of online networking to promote themselves.  In the professional realm, the majority of people use a LinkedIn Profile.  It is imperative that your LinkedIn photo reflect the image and brand that you see for yourself.  The best LinkedIn profiles have the best Linked In profile photos, so be sure to have the best profile picture you can.  Arrange a studio session with a professional photographer that will capture your vision and help you put the best image of you out there.   They have the right equipment, such as lights and backdrops, as well as skill, to separate you from the crowd.  They can help you create a creative and unique way to visually represent yourself with the best profile pictures.

 

Eli Zaturanski is wonderful at capturing the best profile photos and making sure his clients look great.  He is a master at bringing the individual’s image to life and capturing their brand.  Take a look at the examples below and then head over to our contact page to book a session or ask us any questions.  Allow us to help you take your business headshot to the next level.

Eli Zaturanski- Must haves for a holiday party in SF http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/10/eli-zaturanski--must-haves-for-a-holiday-party-in-sf                                                         Eli Zaturanski- Must haves for a holiday party in SF
 

       Fall is here and the holidays are fast approaching. It won't be long before everyone is caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, trying to plan holiday parties, coordinate gatherings, and pick up last minute gifts. It's the most wonderful time of the year, and if you're planning a holiday party for your business or company, now is the time to get the ball rolling. Below is a list of must-haves for a successful holiday party in San Francisco:

 

  • Theme selection: Everyone loves a good themed party. It's fun and light, and helps liven things up. It brings everyone together in a similar fashion, and creates unity among the guests. You can even make a contest based off of who came best dressed for the theme. Have fun with it!

 

  • Music selection: Of course holiday music gets people in the spirit, but you may want to mix it up with some fun and interactive music as well. Consider your audience and what will be the focal point of the party. Is the music going to be more of a background filler, or would a live band or DJ be more up your alley? Consider the vibe you want to create.

 

  • Venue selection: How many people will you need to accommodate? Are you looking for a full service venue that will set it all up, or will you rent out the space and hire your own vendors? There are tons of great venues in the area that will fit your different needs, but be sure you start looking into it sooner rather than later, as some places book up fast around the holiday season. Try searching Holiday Party Venues San Francisco for some great locations.

 

  •  Menu preparation: Will you cater a full meal, have just light hors d'oeuvres, or tables set up with snacks? Will you do a sit down dinner, or would you rather your guests be free to mingle and eat on the go? When choosing food, take these things into consideration and try to select things that aren't too messy or formal if you go the mingling while eating route.

 

  • Specialty cocktails: A fun bonus to the food and fun is a specialty cocktail. Think about the drinks you'll serve, and consider tailoring at least one to your theme or business. This makes a fun and personalized experience for your guests, and can easily become one of the highlights of the event.

 

  • Invitations: Make sure you have the details of your event finalized and in writing in time for your guests to be sure they're able to attend. Be clear on the type of event, any specific attire (formal, casual, themed), whether it's family friendly or if arrangements need to be made for kids, etc.

 

  • Highlights of accomplishments throughout the year: A holiday party is the perfect time to sum up the great year your company has had. Pictures, slideshows, a heartfelt speech, or an awards presentation will really make your guests feel they are appreciated. Consider different ways to honor them and really make it a special evening.

 

 

  • Photographer to capture all the key moments: Last but not least, make sure you hire a dependable professional photographer to document all the little details of your event. Consider incorporating a photo booth so your guests can take some fun and silly shots, and contact Eli Zaturanski Photography, a fabulous event photographer in San Francisco, as he will be sure to capture all the special moments of the party. Eli has done some amazing work in San Francisco Photography, Event Photography, Corporate Photography, as well as Freelance Photography. He knows how to capture the perfect memories from your Holiday Party. Your guests will thank you!

Dating Coaching and Photography http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/10/dating-coaching-and-photography Dating Coaching and Photography

Dating in today's world is drastically different than it was just a few decades ago. With the invention of the Internet, chat rooms, social media, and the like took over and became a one-stop shop for communicating.

Dating Site Headshot Photography Dating Coaching and Photography

Once smart phones entered the scene, face to face interaction became even more obsolete. Dating as we know it was now a thing of the past, or was it?

Dating Site Headshot Photography Dating Coaching and Photography

 

With apps like Tinder and OKCupid, it seems meeting potential suitors by a chance run-in at the local grocery store are slim to none. But humans still crave that deep connection and solid support system that speed dating and awkward Tinder meet-ups can't satisfy. Sometimes it's hard to hone in on the necessary skills to nurture those relationships when you've relied on dating apps and social media as your main forms of connection.

Dating Site Headshot Photography Dating Coaching and Photography

 

Fortunately, with the right resources it's not too late to get back on track and get back to the basics of dating with a purpose. If you struggle with getting past first dates, finding compatible relationships, or find yourself hesitant to even begin the process due to past circumstances, a dating coach may be just what you need. I've teamed up with a wonderful group of coaches at http://www.bayareadatingcoach.com who are qualified to counsel, train, and teach skills to single people who are looking to form more meaningful and long lasting relationships.

I'm confident that after you utilize their tools, we will go from taking headshots for your singles profile, to engagement and wedding photos in the near future. Real and meaningful dating doesn't have to be a thing of the past- you may just have to work a little harder to make it a thing of your future.

Photo sessions are fun, but the best part is receiving the final product after the session. Having a ton of great ones to choose from is a good problem to have, but once you've narrowed it down, here's a step-by-step guide of how to choose, send, and have your favorites edited:

  1. Hover over the bottom of the photo with your mouse until you see an icon bar pop up. The icon bar will contain stacked squares, a heart, and a Facebook link.
  2. Click on the stacked squares, then click inside the selection circle. Once the check mark appears, the photo is now added to your bank of photos.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each photo you want to add.
  4. Once you have selected all your favorites, you should see the stacked squares on the top right of the page corresponding with the number of photos you've chosen.
  5. Click on the stacked squares in the top right corner in order to review your selections.
  6. If you need to view your selections larger than thumbnails, click on the square located on the top right to change the size.

Professional Event Photography - Eli ZaturanskiHoliday Preparation in San Francisco Zaturanski Photography

  • Get the invitations sent out on time: Once you've booked the venue and set everything in stone, print up your invitations and send them out in a timely manner. You want to give everyone an ample amount of time to RSVP, block off the date, and set up any childcare arrangements or accommodations they may need leading up to the party.
  • Make sure all the food and decorations are coordinated: Be sure you stick with a theme (if you choose to have one), and the decor and food are in line with that. Make sure you designate a team to decorate and a trustworthy caterer to get the job done.

 

  • Make sure your caterers are well recommended: The last thing you want is for the food to show up late, unsatisfactory, or not at all. Be sure to check reviews and if possible personal experiences from friends or acquaintances who have used the same service. One of hour favorite caterers is Eli Gilad and we had wonderful experiences.
  • Make sure your photographer is excellent: You want your guests to be able to enjoy the party and have a designated person to document the fun. As an event photographer in San Francisco, Eli Zaturanski Photography specializes in professional corporate and event photography, and Eli will make sure to capture all the moments that make your event special. Incorporating a photo booth is always fun, and can be coordinated with the theme. The portraits of your photoshoot will be a great way to look back on this memorable occasion in the coming years.

 

  • Be sure to make your photos available to your guests in a timely manner: You want your guests to enjoy the event, and also have a way to remember and look back on the fun. Eli will be sure to edit the photos and get them to you so you can have them to your guests in time to maintain a high morale and a great and positive feeling towards your company.

Getting Your Profile Photos Taken in the East Bay | Berkeley and Oakland http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/10/getting-your-profile-photos-taken-in-the-east-bay-berkeley-and-oakland Getting Your Profile Photos Taken in the East Bay

A profile picture used to be thought of as simply a vantage point of how a photo was taken- usually the side view of a person's face. In this modern day of technology, however, profile pictures have taken on a whole new meaning and life. A profile picture is the default photo displayed on everything from your email account, to your online networking page, to dating services. It's essentially a thumbnail sized summary of you.

Family Photos for a Lifetime | Why Professional Photography is Vital for Family Memories http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/9/family-photos-for-a-lifetime-why-professional-photography-is-vital-for-family-memories Why Professional Photography is Vital for Family Memories

Family photo sessions are very important.  It may seem like life is too busy, there is never enough time to schedule a session, the kids are too rowdy, or any number of excuses that may deter you.  Do not let these things stop you from documenting the milestones of your family.  Things change and kids grow in the blink of an eye.  Before you know it you will look back and think, oh no, we do not have any portraits together.  Or, I wish we would have taken the time to have our family photograph taken professionally over the years.

Why Professional Photography is Vital for Family MemoriesProfessional Family PhotographyEli Zaturanski Photography

A Priceless Treasure

Having these images is priceless.  They are irreplaceable.  You can create the session to match your vision.  Whether you are interested in an outdoor, natural light session, or perhaps and indoor studio session, your photographer will work with you to capture some beautiful and lasting images of your family that you can be proud to show off and look back on year after year.

Dating Profile Photos vs. Professional Profile Photos http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/9/dating-profile-photos-vs-professional-profile-photos Dating Profile Photos vs. Professional Profile Photos

 

Online dating has become an almost two billion dollar industry since the creation of the first online match site in 1995.  Today there are over 49 million users on various sites.  If you are serious about making a genuine connection, it would make sense that you pull out all the stops when optimizing your profile.  

Professional Portraits for Online Dating and Corporate HeadshotsProfile Photo Professional PhotographyEli Zaturanski Photography

Your photo is an initial attractor as potential matches scroll their search results.  It may not matter so much how attractive you are, but the quality of your photo makes a difference.  No bathroom mirror selfies, please!  

Headshots in the Photography Industry

Headshots within the photography industry are not new.  They have been used for everything from websites to business cards.  Recently, individuals have been seeking professional services for dating profile photos.  

Professional Portraits for Online Dating and Corporate HeadshotsProfile Photo Professional PhotographyEli Zaturanski Photography

Professional photographers are adept at capturing an individual's personality - fun, flirty, relaxed, and natural.  Many photographers are also skilled in giving advice for posing, clothing choices, accessories, makeup, and settings.  Similar to capturing the emotion and authenticity of a couple on their wedding day, or the raw joy of parents with a newborn.  Photographers don’t change what they are photographing, they just capture their subject in the best possible way.

Professional Portraits for Online Dating and Corporate HeadshotsProfile Photo Professional PhotographyEli Zaturanski Photography

An Eclectic Mix

While professional photos can make you stand out in the online dating game, it’s important to also use a mixture of quality snapshot photos of yourself as well - celebrating with friends, enjoying a vacation, relaxing at home, or enjoying a hobby.   These lifestyle photos are necessary in showing that you are a real person with real experiences, and not a curated series of professional images.

Professional Portraits for Online Dating and Corporate HeadshotsProfile Photo Professional PhotographyEli Zaturanski Photography

If you are serious about the quality of matches you hope to attract through your dating profile, your photos will be a factor.  Consider critiquing your current photo array and revising it with a combination of professional lifestyle photos and quality real-life images.  Both are important and necessary, and differ in the story they tell and the tone they portray.  The balance will show those viewing your profile you are genuine and sincere.

How Corporate Photography Brings Your Events to Life http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/9/how-corporate-photography-brings-your-events-to-life How Corporate Photography Brings Your Events to Life

You may ask yourself why a professional photographer would be necessary at a corporate event these days.  Everyone has a smartphone and are constantly snapping images and posting them places that are available to view.  This is true!  However, these images will not be the quality images that a professional would be capable of capturing.  They will not bring your corporate event or conferences to life with still images the way a professional would.  They are likely to be more social documentation of an event than professional as well.

How corporate photography brings your event to lifeCorporate PhotographyEli Zaturanski Photography

Professional images are important for a business because they show a more polished version of the business image and promote a more professional promotional output.  These are images that can be used to represent a company on their website, in their internal business magazines, brochures, press releases and more.  They will showcase what the business does beyond the product of service.  They could be used to showcase a high profile keynotes speaker.  They may also be a great way to evidence the way a company treats its employees and the way they value and reward them for their hard work.

It is important to impress a professional image of the company upon viewers of the images.  This is difficult to do without the proper professional doing the documentation.  In fact it is vital to the longevity of a business for the public to view it in a positive manner with the right visual impacts.  A professional photographer at your event can ensure high quality images that make for quick, easy and identifiable visuals of your company’s brand and image.

Wedding Planning in First Person | From the Eyes of the Bride http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/9/wedding-planning-in-first-person-from-the-eyes-of-the-bride Weddings are often one of the most exciting days in life for couples. It's a grand event celebrating the next big step in your relationship, and a lifelong commitment to this journey through time together. The end result is wonderful, but the planning and execution to get there can be quite overwhelming. I recently photographed the beautiful wedding of Liliya and George, and Liliya shared some of her wedding planning hurdles leading up to the big day.

From the Eyes of the Bride

"Everyone talks about the ring, the perfect dress, and the date when they hear you're planning a wedding. "When's the big day?" they all ask in earnest. "Can I see the ring?" "Have you picked your dress?!" What they don't prepare you for is all the other little details that come along with planning a wedding.

Don't get me wrong, I was excited for cake tasting and shoe shopping, but what I wasn't ready for was the plethora of decisions thrown my way. Think of going to the grocery store to grab ketchup and being hit with 8 shelves full of different brands of tomato sauce. Now take into account the varying sizes. And don't forget to choose if you want a classic pour bottle, a squeeze top, a twist cap, or flip lid. Now multiply that by a hundred and you'll have an idea of what it's like to wedding plan. So. Many. Choices!

From table linens to silverware, table numbers to floral arrangements, guest books to wedding favors, I'm now convinced that wedding planning is the thing nightmares are made of. Big Pinterest board nightmares with ghosts cloaked in wedding veils and topiary monsters. By the time I got down to revising the guest list, I was ready to just elope. By this point, the good news is you've already snagged the venue, narrowed down the catering menu, and booked your flights out for the honeymoon. The end is near and there's no going back now!

All in all, there were definitely some hurdles and planning our wedding was pretty time consuming to say the least. But even though it sounds cliché, it's totally worth it in the end. You get to enjoy a beautiful day with the love of your life, surrounded by friends and family wishing you well. It may not always be a piece of cake, but those cake choices sure paid off, and I would do it again in a heartbeat."

Rosh Hashanah | Stepping into the New Year http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/9/rosh-hashanah-stepping-into-the-new-year Celebrating Culture and Community

It is important to document our heritage and traditions, especially those important religious celebrations.  Rosh Hashanah is a great opportunity to celebrate culture and coming together as a community.  Rosh Hashanah is a beautiful celebration of the Jewish New Year.  On this day we commemorate the birthday of the universe and God’s creation of Adam and Eve with candle lighting, feasting on traditional dishes day and night, and the sounding of the shofar (ram’s horn).  All of these elements of the celebration are opportunities for documentation.  It is a wonderful opportunity to have beautiful images to look back on, celebrating the culture and sweetness of the holiday.

Rosh Hashanah

There are so many opportunities throughout Rosh Hashanah to document the beauty of the celebration and coming together as a family.  Having a professional photographer at your disposal to document the sweetness and beauty of welcoming the Jewish New Year is a wonderful way for you to have keepsakes and memories of the experience over the years without having to break away from the moment yourself.  Having someone else there to capture the event allows you to remain focused and engaged on the moment.  Especially with it being a religious tradition and celebration, your attention should be on the present, engaging with one another, focusing on the prayers and the symbolism of the celebration.

When you meet someone for the first time, you likely form some opinions about them. Are they friendly? Do they seem dependable? Could I envision myself working with this person? First impressions are important, and you only get one chance to make a first impression- so it's best to make it count.

Creative industries in particular require headshots that will leave a lasting impression.Creative Headshots That Leave a MarkEli Zaturanski Photography

In this age of technology and social media, first impressions are more important than ever. With sites such as LinkedIn and other professional networking sites, our initial meeting with potential employers or clients often comes in the form of a thumbnail sized picture and a bullet point summary of qualifications. With literally hundreds of candidates at their fingertips, how do you stand out?

Creative industries in particular require headshots that will leave a lasting impression.Creative Headshots That Leave a MarkEli Zaturanski Photography

One of the first things you need to do in order to build your online presence is to have some professional headshots done. When scrolling through pages and pages of applicants, you don't want a dimly lit selfie representing who you are. Think of how you want to be portrayed to potential employers or clients when they come across your picture. Entrepreneurs, actors, musicians, and executives alike benefit from displaying headshots.

Bat Mitzvah and Bar Mitzvah Photography | Coming of Age in the Berkeley Jewish Community http://www.elizphotography.com/blog/2017/8/bnei-mitzvah-coming-of-age Coming of Age in the Jewish Community

Growing up, there are different ways people mark the coming of age. You may consider adulthood by whatever coincides with the law, or you may have cultural or religious traditions that dictate when a child crosses over into adulthood. In the Jewish community, Bnei Mitzvahs are celebrated at the age of 13, which signifies the beginning of a young child's own responsibility for their actions. It is always such a wonderful time capturing Bat Mitzvah photography and Bar Mitzvah photography for the Bay Area Berkeley Jewish community.

Congratulations Elan! Capturing your Bar Mitzvah was a joy!bar mitzvah photographyCapturing memories of Elan's Bar Mitzvah

No longer are the parents accountable for upholding the traditions, morals, and ethics for their young son or daughter; the Bnei Mitzvah is now able to participate in all areas of the Jewish community as an equal.

Just look at how proud Liliana's parents look at her Bat Mityzvah!bat mitzvah photographyLilliana's Bat Mitzvah memories captured by Eli Zaturanski.

Adam and Jack recently celebrated becoming Bar Mitzvahs within their community. They began the ceremony at their synagogue, where their family, Rabbi, and leaders witnessed their hard work in preparation for this day. They each read from the Torah, where they showcased their knowledge of the Hebrew language.

What a fun time we had at Lucas' Bar Mitzvah.bar mitzvah photographyLook at how much fun we had at Lucas' Bar Mitzvah!

Their family was incredibly proud of the young men and their transition into adulthood. Later that evening, there was a party for Adam and Jack. Friends and loved ones piled into the reception hall for a night of games, dancing, and celebration. 

What an honor it was being their Bar Mitzvah photographer.Bay Area Berkeley Jewish communityBeing able to capture memories for the Bay Area Berkeley Jewish community is such an honor!

Even though they became adults within their community, the party was all about having fun and being carefree. There wasn't a single person sitting on the sidelines when it came time to dance.

Congratulations Noah! What a huge step in your life.Bar MitzvahPhotographing Noah's Bar Mitzvah milestone was an incredible honor.

It was a full on festival marking the Bnei Mitzvah and their hard work and dedication to their community. As the chairs were lifted above the crowd of dancing partygoers, and the boys' faces beamed with pride, it was truly an honor to capture the joy in the room that night. Mazel Tov!

There were genuine smiles.

There was authentic laughter. This is what family photo shoots are made of! This is what love is all about. Families are unique and chaotic, especially when you throw kids in the mix! But amidst that chaos is a deep and stark beauty. Families are authentic and real, and it's truly a treat when you're able to convey that behind the lens. Families are anything but posed, and capturing the love that flows between them is such an incredible honor.
