Elana Goodridge photographed my son's Bar Mitzvah. We were so very pleased by both the process and the outcome! Elana is great at setting-up the 'staged' shots, helping to get everyone to relax. What puts her head and shoulders above the rest is her true expertise at catching those candid shots. It is easy to see by the photos, that she can take the shots, while being completely unobtrusive. These candid shots are really the keepsake gems. Catching the true feelings/meaning of the day! She also seems to be everywhere at once and captured so many of these candid shots of so many of the guests! She was a pleasure to work with, professional, fun, kind and courteous! It was a wonderful day and we will be able to remember all those special moments by the wonderful photos! I highly recommend Elana Goodridge Photography!!

It was wonderful having Elana do the photography at my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. Both the posed and candid shots at the Temple and party were fantastic. Elana is creative, passionate about her work and was able to seamlessly take outstanding candid pictures without interrupting the flow of the event. She is very professional, focused on details, punctual and responds to calls and emails promptly. A month before the event Elana did a photo shoot with my daughter in Central Park. The pictures are fabulous. My daughter immediately felt comfortable with and liked Elana. Working with Elana was an extremely enjoyable excellent experience. I highly recommend Elana for events and photo shoots.

Elana did a fantastic job capturing the most important aspects of our daughter's Bat Mitzvah. Not only did she take great pictures of us that we will treasure forever, but she also managed to photograph all the details that we had spent months planning. In addition, she managed to get pictures of all family members and friends in multiple combinations and capture the different emotions at the party so well that my first look at the photos was through tearful eyes! My only regret is that we can't put all the pictures we like in the final album because there are just too many fabulous shots!!!
