Rabbi Kalev on Graham & Graham

Rabbi Kalev reviews Graham and Graham Photography

Jeff did my son's bar mitzvah,

and more recently our synagogue's gala. He prepared a tribute video and also shot live video on the night. Everything is professional and sensitive to the specific needs of the situation. He even found my son's bar mitzvah shots on line for me after almost 7 years. Recommended! - Jeff W., Manhattan Beach

Graham & Graham took photos at our recent Gala celebration and the pictures were amazing! Jeff managed to capture the essence of every single person there as well as the beauty of the event, unobtrusively. I swear, each picture was better than the next. I don't know how he does, just happy he does! - Melissa, Manhattan Beach

Not only is Graham & Graham's photography and video amazing, they are also a pleasure to work with. - Tamah K., Redondo Beach

We have been using Jeff and his team for our holiday card photo shoot for years now and our last event was the absolute best! He photographed our son's bar mitzvah and I couldn't be more thrilled with his photos - the amount of coverage we got pre-event and during the event was outstanding. I have more beautiful shots than I know what to do with. (And some silly ones too!) Jeff is ultra professional and efficient - even with the littlest of kids. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any important event. - Lisa, Manhattan Beach

We have photographed Bar/Bat Mitzvahs at CTJ for years and look forward to many more to come.
