I was lucky to be connected to Rebecca Grossman, co-founder of Montages For You through a networking group. She creates affordable, custom montages for all sorts of celebrations. Rebecca gets what families are looking for because she just hosted her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in the middle of this pandemic. Montages are a great thing to work on now, so read on to learn more about Rebecca and Montages For You.
How did you start Montages For You?
As we started looking for vendors for our daughter’s bat mitzvah we were surprised to see that most professional montages cost $500 – $750, and some were over $1,000! We thought there must be others like us who want a professional montage at an affordable price. That is why we started Montages For You.
What’s your favorite part of what you do?
Being a part of creating memories that last. Our montages are shown at weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs and other special occasions. But they last beyond that one day and can be watched over and over for years to come.
What’s your pop color–that something special that makes you, you?
We make the entire process as simple as possible. Tell us what you are looking for, and within a week you will have an amazing professionally created montage at an affordable price.
What’s your favorite moment of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah?
Showing the montage, of course! It’s when everyone is quiet, and gets to sit down for a few minutes and experience the journey of the child and the family who are celebrating that day. It really shows how much has changed for that family in the past ~13 years, and all the people and activities and everything that is important to that child up until that point in his/her life.
What questions should parents ask someone in your field?
How should I select photos to create a meaningful montage that captures the essence of my child, and is fun for everyone to watch?
