Heather Scharf Photography bio picture
  • Welcome

    Hello! My name is Heather and I am so happy you stopped by! This blog is a place where I will share love stories of amazing couples who I had the honor of photographing. It is a place where I can express my passion with images where my words fall short. Photography has changed my life drastically and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this gift. I wish I could say the same thing about my singing voice, but what can you do?!

Alissa’s Bat Mitzvah

Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that you never even saw coming…and sometimes the best gifts are the ones you receive after dropping hints for about a month 😉  In this case, I never saw it coming!  I received a call from a mother who was planning her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.  I was totally thrown off guard as I quickly looked up Bat Mitzvah to see exactly what photographing one of these cool events even meant!  Before I could even wrap my brain around it, I was totally hitting it off with Marcella and probably would have agreed to just about anything she asked me to do!  When I met her daughter and the rest of the family I was sold!  Just beautiful hearts all around!  It was a huge gift to be a part of this huge milestone in Alissa’s life and I will forever cherish this experience.

I never thought I would ever shoot a Mitzvah, and now that I have, I realized that “Before it came into my life, I missed it so bad.  I missed it so so bad!”  Ok, yes that was me that requested “Call me Maybe” at the Party.  I think maybe there is a 13 year old still trapped in me…another reason why I loved hanging out with all these kids!

Here is my first attempt at a Bat/Bar Mitzvah!  Hopefully there will be several more attempts in the future!

Marcella did an AMAZING job designing the event’s concept!  She has such a great eye for details!  Big thanks to gloweventdesign.com for such a smooth day and fun event!

The Party…It was the first weekend after school had let out!  Such a great color palette to celebrate Summer!

Hello!  Candy necklaces and rhinestone pinwheel!  I just love it when the table decor is edible!

I just love the candy jars used as pillars to hold up beverage glasses!

Ice Cream Sundae bar with all the fixin’s in large martini shaped bowls!  

I had to do everything in my power not to do exactly what this cutie was doing!

Last but not least…A Candy Station that puts Willy Wonka to shame!   Just a little send off for the kids to remember the sweet time they had at Alissa’s Bat Mitzvah!
