Zach and Rachael and not your typical B'nai Mitzvah. They are not twins, but an older brother and younger sister who decided to have a shared Mitzvah ceremony and party. These siblings are so close that they felt it would be more fun to do it together as a team. In the Jewish religion, girls are allowed to have their Bat-Mitzvah at 12, this made everything work out. Rachael and Zach were great together - sure, they have "moments" like most siblings do, but the love and care they have for each other was fully on display for the entire day. The Bima shoot that morning went smoothly with both children supporting one another. You could see how ready and eager they were to share everything they have studied and learned, with their family and friends.
Later that day, we met up a Citizen Bank Park (Phillies Stadium) for the party. The immediate family showed up early, sp we got a chance to take pictures all around the park. It was a bit cold out that day but it didn't stop us from shooting some awesome photos! We had so much fun taking them that we were almost late to the actual party! Everyone was dancing and celebrating the entire night including Zach and Rachael's 101 year old great-grandmother (I actually think she partied the most, ha!). This party went to the next level when the Philly Phanatic showed up and joined right in. We all had such a great time celebrating this joyous occasion. Thank you, Jamie and Jennifer, for allowing me to capture this extra special day - I hope everyone enjoys this small visual recap. Mazel Tov Rachael & Zach!
