Scott goes beyond the call of duty and takes tremendous care that everything flows smoothly. He knows exactly how to guide the group of extended family to get the both formal and intimate shots and he directs the choreography of who should join which photo and when in a seamless and polite manner. The quality of the end result album is remarkable and something we will treasure forever.

“Scott did a phenomenal job photographing my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. From the service to the party he managed to get the difficult family members to smile, stay together and captured every last smile. He made the party look like it was happening right off the pages. He caught every dance move, smile, conversation and guest. He did it all so politely and with such grace and humor. Every guest loved him. In fact 3 friends have already booked him for their events. My sons Bar Mitzvah is in two years and I booked him the day after he did did my daughters Bat Mitzvah. His photo’s are fluid, real and he did not miss one person or moment of the day.”
— Dani and Larry K.
“We had a great experience working with Scott Lasky for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. He is very well organized and knows exactly what kinds of pictures a family wants from such an event. He also knows the various synagogues in the area — and is very familiar with what the schedule should be for capturing important moments (i.e. our synagogue did not allow Saturday photography so we met two days in advance to “recreate” the service). All the photos were finished very quickly and the album was also ready soon after we ordered it. We were very happy with the pictures and overall experience. I would hire him again for our younger daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.”
— Liann and Paul W.
“The green screen magazine photos were a HUGE hit! People had so much fun with it! They loved the photos! The photos were great quality and I am completely satisfied with the success of the booth.

Scott, you are sooooo professional, on the ball, on the mark and no hidden games — fees and services. You outlined and delivered all you said you would in every way… Having finished the last Bar Mitzvah — now we have two more grads and “weddings” with the older kids — I will use him for anything where u want top-notch pro work. You made our event so easy and effortless as far as my family and I were concerned thus we were able to relax and actually enjoy the event and KNOW that all would be chronicled in an artistic and wonderful fashion. You rock Scott, and you made our son Max soooo happy!”
— Christina R.

“I give Scott Lasky my highest recommendation as a photographer and recommend him without reservation. I hired him to do two different events two years apart, both of them a Bat Mitzvah and then the evening party. Both events required Scott to expertly navigate my family’s and my in-law’s family’s politics, health care needs, animosities, friendships, and loudly expressed opinions. Through it all Scott was a great partner and advocate for each of my daughter’s when it was each of their turns to become a Bat Mitzvah. He was always extremely pleasant and polite even when faced with party- or family-related adverse circumstances. He was always cheerful and upbeat and always had a solution or recommendation if I asked him for one. Then, after the events, Scott delivered gorgeous photos both online and in proof format. Both of my daughters love their finished Bat Mitzvah album, and we will always treasure these family memories, thanks to Scott!”

“By the way, I don’t think I had a chance to really thank you for all you did at the bat mitzvah. Having you there is having an extra set of eyes and ears. You are more than a professional photographer! You especially came to the rescue during the candle lighting! You are so helpful and I felt more comfortable at the event knowing you were there. Also, you are so good about turn around times and such. The photo booth was a huge hit! Thank you again for everything!”
— Marcey and Lloyd W.

— William G.
“Scott Lasky is the BEST Bar/Bat Mitzvah photographer in the universe! He’s familiarity with the ceremony and customs ensures that he captures every precious moment flawlessly. More importantly, he understands people and what’s important and would therefore be able to capture any occasion. Scott is helpful and fun to work with. Proofs were available on-line fairly quickly after the event; an album of proofs was provided as well. Unfortunately, I had a hard time selecting photos for the final album — they were all good!”

We’ve already reserved for our daughter’s event, but call early, as we had competition for our date more than a year in advance!”
— Alison and Ken R.
“Scott, I LOVE the album! Thanks — it is beautiful and I’m so happy to have it!”

— Kate V. – Fundraiser Chair
“Scott Lasky was the photographer for my twin daughter’s Bat Mitzvah and to say that we were delighted with each and every picture would be an understatement. We knew we wanted Scott to photograph this very important day from the minute we met him as we were so pleased with his customer service and attention to detail. On the day of the event, he couldn’t have been more professional and he made sure that he got every single picture of the service and the party that we could have wanted. There wasn’t one picture that we wish he would have taken… because he took them all! He captured every single moment we wanted, every single memory, and we are so thankful that we chose Scott. I highly recommend him every chance I get to all of my friends because I truly believe he is the best. The absolute best. ”
— Peggy & Wayne M.
“Scott has done the formal photography for our two bar mitzvahs (so far – there’s still one more to go!), and he has done a wonderful job each time. Even beyond the quality of the photos, which was high, was the quality of Scott’s people skills and his personableness. I was amazed at the ease with which Scott was able to quickly and effectively work with our large extended family, with its members of all ages and degrees of jet lag! I was also very pleased with the promptness of Scott’s production of our proofs. He is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.”
— Renee & Joel Z.
“THESE ARE AWESOME! I tell you, these shots are so full of emotion and fun and light. I cried again! These just capture the entire feeling of a fabulous day. GREAT JOB SCOTT! WOW!”
— Mary Pat D.
“We hired Scott to photograph our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah at our temple plus the evening party at a local community center. The morning of the Bat Mitzvah Scott met us at the designated time at our temple and photographed all of the family members, no easy feat considering some of our relatives! There was a fair amount of “relative wrangling” to get us into the right groupings, and Scott diplomatically managed all of us politely and efficiently. He knew which groupings would work best as well as how to quickly position us (we had limited time before the service started). Later that evening at the party, he arrived early and took photos throughout the entire evening. After the party, he promptly delivered the proofs from which we chose our album. It was our first opportunity to see our photos — and they turned out fantastic! Scott takes fabulous photos and knows how to capture the mood of an event, from the serious (a religious ceremony) to the silly (at the evening party). He was always completely professional and thoroughly helpful, offering honest advice whenever I asked. When our album arrived, we eagerly paged through it and were pleasantly surprised that Scott had added a few extra photos free of charge to make the album look more complete. We loved working with Scott so much that we’ve already hired him to do our younger daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in 2011. I highly recommend Scott and look forward to working with him again!”
— Laura W. and Danny C.
“The pictures are terrific! You do beautiful work.”
— Stuart K.
“Working with Scott was truly a dream come true. Not only is he professional and talented in his own right, he adds a personal touch that is comforting and nonintrusive. He “blended” into our Bar Mitzvah day and when we viewed the proofs, the day truly came to life once again…it was a very emotional experience reliving it all through his amazing photos. Family and friends were struck as well by the way he captured the guests and the event so beautifully! We have heard nothing but compliments!”
— Carrie and Dave P.
“Scott is a true artist! His photos capture the moment beautifully. I was able to enjoy our special day with no worries. His albums are masterpieces, and I was able to share my imput with him every step of the design process. If you wish to capture the memories of a special occasion, call Scott Lasky!”
— Cindy and Roger L.

“We eagerly engaged Scott as photographer for our only child Shoshana’s Bat Mitzvah after we had the pleasure of seeing him an action at the simchas of many dear friends.

— Paula and Marc L.

“I would highly recommend Scott as a photographer. Scott is patient, organized, thoughtful and a true professional. His insights, recommendations and creativity during the entire process were invaluable. Our daughter Devon’s Bat Mitzvah album is spectacular, Scott managed to capture all the images that we wanted him to and more. We have already booked Scott for our daughter Haley’s Bat Mitzvah in October 2010.”
— Josie and Stuart S.
“Scott is an extremely talented photographer. He’s very professional and his turnaround time amazing. Talk about fast… We got married on June 22nd and by June 24th – the day we arrived in Hawaii for our honeymoon — the photos were up on his site ready for us to look at! Once we chose the photos we wanted for our album, he put it together very quickly. We were really happy with the design and how quickly we got the finished product. Scott clearly has a knack not only for photography but for design. We show our album to people and everyone just oohs and aahs. They’re amazed at how beautiful it is! We had met with several other photographers and were about to go with one of them when my mom got Scott’s name through Congregation Beth Am and suggested we meet with him. Talk about saving the best for last…he was the last person we met with but definitely the best. I am so glad we went with him! I can’t recommend Scott enough. He did a stellar job both taking pictures at our wedding and creating the album. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give him a 12. When all is said and done – all the planning has come to an end, the guests have left and your wedding is over -what you’ve got left as a memory of the most important day of your life is the photos. And trust me, if you go with Scott, you’ll have amazing photos to cherish for years to come. Thanks so very much, Scott! You did a terrific, amazing, top notch job! We’re impressed with both you and the photos!”
— Julie and Mike M.
“Scott was a joy to work with during our son’s Bar Mitzvah. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. Just as he did four years ago at our older son’s Bar Mitzvah, Scott captured in his photography the emotion, tradition and excitement of both the Bar Mitzvah ceremony and the party. We are absolutely delighted with our finished album, as well as the two smaller albums Scott helped us create for each set of grandparents. We wholeheartedly recommend hiring Scott to photograph your next event!”
— Cyndi and Doug K.
“Once again, thank you! Your generosity is large and we all appreciate you and your amazing pictures, your time, and your smiles. Thank you for providing such wonderful service to the entire community.”

“We have known Scott for over 15 years. His pictures from our events are always beautiful. He works with the family before, during and after the event to provide the best and meet the family’s needs. His digital albums are fabulous and he makes it so easy with online availability. We highly recommend Scott.”
— Adele and Jeff K.
“Scott is extremely easy to work with and maneuvers himself around the party in the most unobtrusive way, so as to not interfere with the dancing and enjoyment by the guests. The formal pictures taken before the event are done very professionally, with the shots capturing all the family poses very effortlessly and quickly. The results are amazing and it makes it very difficult to select just the right pictures for the album. One of my favorite things about Scott is that he takes many photos of the synagogue to be used as the background layout for the album pages. This not only gives you great pictures, but many additional memories of the sanctuary and the decorated party room. ”
— Wendy and Mitch A.
“Scott was great to work with. He was very professional and unlike other photographers we have worked with in the past, his style was non-intrusive. His pictures at the synagogue and at the party really captured the essence of the event.

— Jodi and Gary G.

— Alana and Grant G.
“It can be such chaos when you’re trying to get the different family groupings together for pictures at the rehearsal or the party, but Scott was so professional and organized. He knew the best places to take the pictures, was very organized at bringing people in and out of the shots, and the whole process of the posed pictures was virtually painless. Scott worked with us ahead of time so he knew the kind of candid shots we wanted, and during the evening he managed to be in the right place to get wonderful pictures. All the photographs were just beautiful — it was very hard to pick out our favorites for the album.”
— Barbara and Scott K.
“We have been using Scott to photograph our family for about 10 years now. We met him when he photographed our youngest child’s pre-school class. He is so easy to work with and helps everyone feel comfortable and as a result, the photos always turn out great! We just celebrated our third Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and Scott was the photographer at each one. We love the photos that capture these great memories, and the newer digital photo albums are wonderful! We also get comments from our family and friends attending our events, on just how nice Scott is. He’s a pleasure to work with!”
— Debbie and Bob M.
“We love all the pictures! it is very hard to choose for the album, and we have gotten so many compliments! You did a great job at our wedding!”

“Thanks to Scott, we have the most beautiful albums from the B’nai Mitzvahs of our two sons(12/00 and 06/02) and our daughter (03/07). The quality of the pictures, his expertise in taking the appropriate ones for the occasion and his ability to take the pictures without intruding were amazing.””
— Marsah and Gordon E.
“Scott is a pleasure to work with. He not only takes great pictures, but he is a lovely person that you are happy to have at any event. He gets everyone in a group to look their best, even my 13 year old son who hates having his picture taken!”
— Ellen S.
“Susan and I are so appreciative that you captured all of the incredible moments of the day. It went by so fast and your pictures help us to remember and savor the joy of the day. You even got shots of things we did not know about or get to! We look forward to working on putting an album together, but it is going to be very hard to choose what pictures to use!”
— Susan and Michael K.
“Your photographs were beautiful. The family looked beautiful and very happy in each photo. You are an artist and I will definitely keep your contact information on hand for future use. I do catering on the side and if I ever have the need or am asked for a good photographer, you will be my first choice. I am very, very impressed with your work.”
— Julia P.
“My whole family misses you! We just loved having you here doing all the photographs this weekend for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.I just think you did an absolutely superb job, and I’m only sad that we didn’t hire you for our first child….. I hope you’re still doing weddings in a decade or so from now, because you will definitely hear from us.”
— Emily and Michael G.
“Thank you so much for the proofs, they are beautiful. It is wonderful to go through the photos and see the day all over again, you did an amazing job. Some of our guests even commented on how great you were, so thanks again for making our wedding day perfect!”
— Stacy and James D.
“I’m sorry that we have not picked the photos out yet, the truth is there were so many good ones I flagged them all!”
— Andrea and Claude S.
“Under challenging circumstances, Scott executes his job flawlessly. Scott’s combination of equipment and expertise produced photographs that, in my mind, could not have been better. The shots taken during our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah service truly capture the emotions of the moment, the photos seem alive and intimate. His experience clearly shows in the beautiful photographs we now have.”
— Lisa and Darrell B.
“Every shot is great–it’s hard to choose because they’re all great pictures! Our whole family loved the photos so much, everyone wants copies. Scott really captured such a special day for us and I’m so glad he was our photographer!”
— Diana and Rick F.
“Scott Lasky has been our family photographer since 1996, photographing the Bar Mitzvah ceremonies of my two sons and, most recently, our renewal of vows ceremony. His professionalism has enhanced all three of our events. He knows which shots to get and how to get those shots while never being in the way. The albums we have from those events will always be treasured by us.”
— Judith and Bernie S.
“Working with Scott Lasky was a joy. He was great with my family — greeting everyone warmly and making them all feel comfortable. He made sure that he got pictures of every family member, and he had no trouble getting our son (the bar mitzvah boy) to smile for every shot. At our evening event, he ran interference with the hosting facility for us so that we did not have to worry about musical issues, extra food, or kids’ activities. Scott was on top of everything and made the evening run smoothly. Most important to our family, Scott understands that the Torah scroll is a sacred object. He always treats the Torah with great respect, and never as a “prop.” We could not be happier with Scott Lasky Photography.”
— Kay and Lee G.
“Scott has photographed three major events in our lives – two Bnei Mitzvahs and a wedding. He is professional in all aspects and has been a positive force in organizing all of the participants for a terrific photographic outcome. The thoroughness and quality of his work provide us with albums that allow us to relive the joy of these occasions over and over again. We have recommended to friends who have been equally satisfied.”
— Cheryl B. and Eric E.
“Scott was a terrific choice to photograph our daughter’s bat mitzvah. He is organized and reliable in the planning stages. Scott is very respectful of the Torah and takes great care to include extended family members in pictures. Also, Scott did a wonderful and creative job of the final presentation of the photos by producing a gorgeous photo album. The photos really are an accurate and precious reflection of our day. I will use Scott again for our future b’nai mitzvot.”
— Susie and Bob F.
“Scott really knows how to frame all of the important moments, that can’t actually be caught on that special day in a conservative synagogue. He has created wonderful family shots as well. We used Scott for all 3 of our sons bar mitzvah’s and I continue to tell my friend how easy he is to work with. The nicest part of his services this last time was having the pictures online. I was able to send all of my friends and family to his website to view all of the pictures from the bar mitzvah and the party. Then if they wanted to order their favorites, they could do that as well.”
— Renee and Mark A.
“The selection of fabulous pictures to choose from was endless, but the creativity and care taken was outstanding. Scott is a pleasure to work with and everybody loves him. It is amazing that he is able to capture every perfect moment!”
— Kate and Mark V.
“We hired Scott because of his beautiful photographs, but what we also got was an experienced professional who helped to keep our event running smoothly. We ran into several snags and Scott was there to seamlessly handle the problems and get the party back on track. His online service is a dream because family and friends can order their own memories without depending on you. We treasure our albums that Scott designed and look forward to hiring him again.”
— Harriet and Richard M.
“Scott Lasky is the BEST. We’ve used Scott’s services for years of family portraits and two Bat Mitzvahs. We’d never consider going anywhere else. Through discussions with us, Scott is able to identify the key people we want photographed at the event and deliver to us beautiful photos highlighting those individuals. Scott’s photography catches the spirit, as well as the visual retelling, of the wonderful day!”
— Stacey and Barry N.
“It’s been very crazy here but I wanted to let you know that everyone loves the album. It looks great. Thanks so much for being so patient with us!”
— Suzanne and Luke L.
“Working with Scott was very easy. He is calm and knows what needs to be done. Scott was very careful to be as unobtrusive as possible while taking the action shots. I’ve been to many such parties where the photographer practically pushes the people dancing out of the way in order to get his shots and I didn’t want that. Additionally, I loved Scott’s pricing when it came to ordering our pictures. Unlike many photographers where you must purchase a package deal, Scott is extremely flexible and provides many options when ordering whatever quantity of pictures suits your family’s needs.”
— Wendy and Mitch A.
“Scott Lasky is an excellent photographer, who captured many extraordinary and wonderful moments of Leah’s Bat Mitzvah. We will forever cherish this special day, because we can relive the experience through the beauty of the album he created for our family. His digital albums are a work of art-exceptionally arranged to tell the entire story. Scott is very accommodating and flexible, and works tirelessly to photograph every part of the Bat Mitzvah event from beginning to end. We are really excited about using Scott again for Frieda’s Bat Mitzvah in 2010, and we would highly recommend his services.”
— Janice and Rich F.

— Felicia and Michael S.
“Scott does an amazing job capturing the moment in all his work. The quality of the final product is exceptional and he is as professional as they come.

— Amy and Manny C.
“Scott is the total package, his professionalism and desire for perfection has given us photos that relive our memories and that we will cherish forever.

All in all Scott gives each event over 110% and carries it through with his “aftercare” as well.”
— Michelle and Louie S.
“Not only is Scott a wonderful photographer, but he provides sane and experienced assistance on an often chaotic and insane day. I wouldn’t use anyone else.”
— Bette P.and David H.
“Scott was so easy to work with both in preparations and on the day of the event. He made the family picture taking easy and stress free. Best of all, our pictures are of such high quality. Thanks to Scott, we have an album of beautiful memories. Once your special day has past, it’s the photographs that remain. It’s so important to have those pictures taken by someone that you can trust to do an excellent job. We are so glad that Scott was available for us!”
— Barbara and Gordon W.
“Scott Lasky took the photos for both our daughters’ Bat Mitzvahs. The hardest part about working with Scott is trying to choose which photos to use in the album – there are so many excellent shots to choose from! He is consistently professional and easy going, coaxing natural smiles from young and old. No family drama seems to phase him. The finished albums are amazing and a wonderful keepsake. We hope he is still snapping photos when our kids get married!”
— Debby and David H.
“Scott was the photographer for our commitment ceremony and we were so impressed with his professionalism! He worked hard to get just the right photos while being completely unobtrusive.

— Robin P. and Michael H.
“We live in an area where there are lots of talented photographers. What makes Scott Lasky stand out amongst his peers is, his innate “zen-like” presence in the midst of what can feel like total chaos on the day of your event. Scott truly listens to you, remembers what you’ve said to him, offers superb suggestions on how to enhance your ideas, and then follows through with all of it. He captures the finest moments of your event through his lens and then presents the finished product in a timely fashion and “wows” you every step of the way.”
— Lisa and Michael S.
“Every time someone looks at our wedding album, the same thing happens: Amazement, oohs and ahs, and comments like “I have never seen an album such as this before.” Scott creates works of art that will be have an important part of any couple’s or family’s lives for years to come. (We even bought a special, new table just to leave it out for all to see!) Even better, working with Scott is a delight. Our wedding was the fourth in a sequence of family events he has done for us. Each time, his skills, technology, and artistry only get better. Our highest recommendation goes to Scott.”
— Eddie R. and Ed J.
“Scott read the nuances of our family dynamics like he was ‘mishpocha.’ The resulting photos not only reflect the joy of a very special day, but also the depth and complexity of our family’s relationships. He is a pro.”
— Susan and Bob W.
“Scott did a great job on our son’s bar mitzvah photos. The photographs were terrific and Scott did a great job on the layout for the album.

We will definitely use him again and recommend him without reservation.”
— Jerry and Leslie B.
“We used Scott Lasky’s services for all our 3 sons’ Bar Mitzvah’s and were very pleased with the results. Scott’s professionalism, attention to detail, patience, and integrity made him a pleasure to work with. We may just have another child just so we can employ his services a fourth time!”
— Robert and Ronit K.
“Scott’s eye for great photos is remarkable, but that’s just the starting point for a good photographer. Scott was very responsive to our needs. He took all of the photos that we discussed, and his overall experience and calm were invaluable.”
— Lorraine and Joel B.
“Scott was organized, professional and friendly, and he worked cooperatively with the other professionals at our events. He was particularly efficient with gathering the various combinations of family members for the group shots. I was very happy with the beautiful pictures, both formal and candid, that he took before and at the ceremony as well as at the party. I would certainly hire Scott again to photograph another special event!”
— Gloria and Steve C.
“Scott did our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah a few years ago, and we were so happy that we called him as soon as we had a date for our son.

— Debbie and Bob M.
“Scott was totally dependable, prompt and completely prepared. His shots were creative and beautifully composed. The final presentation in the book of photographs that we chose showed his artistry in photographic composition, both in the original capturing of the image and in the manipulation of the image for the final display in our album. We were completely satisifed with Scott’s work and can wholeheartly recommend him to photograph your event.”
— Renee and Mo B.

“Scott has photographed our family on numerous occasions over the years. We have memorable photographs of our children and family in preschool and most recently at my son’s bar mitzvah. In all instances, he has managed to capture us at our best and in his gentle manner persisted in getting just the right pose and in the most artistic composition possible. I treasure so many of the photographs we have from Scott. We love all the photos Scott took at the bar mitzvah service and reception and he put together a magnificent album. At the reception Scott had a photo booth which was a smashing success for young and old alike. Everyone had great fun at the booth and many have their photos on display on their mantlepieces at home. I have enjoyed working with Scott and find him talented, sensitive, kind, and extremely professional. We look forward to working with him at family simchas in the future and for all our photography needs.”
— Karen and David P.
