Nico’s Mom and Dad had been looking forward to throwing Nico’s Bar Mitzvah for a long time. The party was preceded by a temple session and Seder the day before. I was treated so graciously to gourmet meal while shooting the Seder. Check out the photos to see what I’m talking about. The wonderful Seder decor and food was provided by Patricia Engelhard of Escarole Catering. The party itself was one for the books with entertainment and decor provided by David Milowitz at ESP Productions. Family and friends from all over the US, Europe, and South America were in attendance and to make things even more special Nico’s dad arranged a video montage of soccer stars from South America wishing Nico a Happy Birthday. But wait there’s more!!! To top it off Dad also pulled some strings to get Nico a jersey signed by all of them. Despite all of the festivities being centered around him Nico was the most down to earth and polite young man. It was a pleasure photographing him and his family on his big day!
