I’ve really enjoyed working with Adam Nudelman of Event Video. He’s a true pro who will make sure you have a top notch experience plus give you amazing video coverage of your simcha. He also is going through the Mitzvah process right now with his own daughter (it’s this September!), so he gets it!
Here’s Adam to tell you more:
How did you get started with Event Video?
I was involved in video production at different television stations, and I always wanted to run my own business. After a while, I was really looking for a more creative and positive outlet for my skills, after working on negative news stories and dealing with the politics of broadcast. I saw Mitzvahs as a way to create a positive production for families and as a way to establish myself as an independent business away from the corporate structure of many stations.
What is your favorite part of what you do?
My favorite part is delivering the final product and having the family absolutely love it!
What is your pop color–that something special that makes you, you?
I do my best to lighten the mood for families during a very stressful time.
What is your favorite moment of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah?
I always get my favorite moments of the video during the Hora.
What questions should parents ask someone in your field?
Are you going to shoot my event personally? There’s nothing worse than building a rapport with a videographer only to find out that they’ll be sending someone else to video your event.

I had so much fun working with Cori and Spencer’s family on their B’nai Mitzvah party at Fox Ventures (now closed) in Beltsville, MD. The family was hysterical and kept me laughing and very well fed throughout the planning process! They wanted an urban club/lounge vibe that would be appropriate for both a boy and a girl. We utilized lavender and midnight blue, mixing the soft and feminine with the gritty and more masculine to tie in the personalities of both of the twins. The warehouse venue with black draping also mixed the soft and gritty. The contrast was really cool.
Aren’t they the cutest family? I love how happy they all look in this photo.
The focal point of the room was an 8′ tall DJ booth with Cori and Spencer’s logo suspended from it. It was a major wow factor and guests kept saying that they’d never seen anything like it before.
The DJ booth lent itself to some amazing photos! And it’s a good thing that the DJ was okay with heights!
A fully stocked 12-foot bar covered in graffiti lent itself to the urban club-feel.
A step and repeat tied together all 3 event logos–one for each twin plus a joint logo.
Unique and yummy desserts were a huge hit! Edible cookie dough shots and bites plus liquid nitrogen ice cream kept the crowd coming back for more.
Thanks to the awesome vendors who helped make it happen!
