San Diego Jewish Congregations

We are proud to provide our photography and videography services for all members of the San Diego Jewish community. Whether you belong to a synagogue, shul, or temple, or are unaffiliated with a specific congregation, we want to be your photographer of choice. No matter your level of observance, we will make arrangements to fit your needs.

If you are looking to join a congregation in preparation for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah in the family, you are welcome to refer to the list below. We also photograph well beyond San Diego County. So if you are planning a destination event, or a celebration in another city, please contact our studio for details.
