Mara & Josh’s Wedding: Sept 9, 2017 – Camp Arowhon Algonquin Park This was one of my favourite weekends of the wedding season, spent at Camp Arowhon with Mara and Josh as it was their…. WEDDING!!!   Mara and Josh make a wonderful couple and this wedding really brought that to the fore.   Everyone stayed over in their own log cabin, and made it seem like we were all back at camp again, just like in our teenage years. Canoes were a-paddlin’,  climbing ropes a-hanging, you could go anywhere and do anything, unlike actual summer camp :-). The place looked fantastic, all decked out for a celebration to end all celebrations. The morning started with me wandering around camp and photographing whomever and whatever. I made my way to Mara getting dressed and then over to Josh. We had a special reveal on the dock and then crept a way to get some private photos before taking portraits with the family.  Finally on to the ceremony… yes, the ceremony. Quite an entrance was made by both parties, one aquatic and the other equine, just your typical entrance, y’know.  The party rocked like no other, this band blew the roof off the camp main lodge. The party went into the wee […]

    Father’s Day Photography Special   So Father’s Day… and you don’t have a gift. Might I suggest something? GIFT #1: The first is a FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT to honour your dad. This can be the family, just the kids, just the dad, whatever you want. Check out some family fun HERE.   OR…   GIFT #2: Give your dad a one-on-one “HOW THE HECK DO I USE THIS NEW CAMERA?” lesson. I love teaching this class, we sit down for an hour, and go through everything on the camera: how it works, how to use it, how to take your camera off the auto setting – just what are all these buttons for, why are there so many, what the heck do they do? Basically a one-on-one master class with an experienced, knowledgable and fun teacher. Ask your dad to take a photo of you with his camera, if it’s still on the auto setting, then this is the gift for him. If you click HERE, you can see my photo gear, this is what I’m talking about, anything here is fair game.   Father’s Day Special, $150 for one gift, or $250 for both.   I will extend this […]

    Sima and Joe Rosen – 50th Wedding Anniversary: April 8, 2017 Photographed by Ben What a night for a 50th…. Its not everyday you get to help celebrate and capture the joy and love of a 50th wedding anniversary.  When an old buddy called and asked if I would do the honours of capturing the special evening for his parents Sima and Joe, I knew I’d be in for an amazing evening. The party took place at the famed Paese Restaurant in Toronto.  The food was fantastic, the traditional folk band was high class, and the love in the room was overflowing.  Thanks again for letting me be a part of this wonderful evening.  Here’s to another 50 years Sima and Joe Rosen.   All Photos are HERE

    Yael’s Bat Mitzvah: January 14, 2017 My first Bat Mitzvah of the year turned out to be a spectacular event filled with joy, love, fun, music, and dance.  I first met this family two years ago when I photographed Elysha’s Bat Mitzvah, and it was a pleasure to see them again for Yael’s.  We started out at the house with a pre-mitzvah shoot, just the fam’ having fun.  Then off to Adath Israel for the ceremony, and finally the party led by the always-reliable Bounce Entertainment.  This was a great way to start the year.  Yael, you looked beautiful and charmed the crowd, way to go.  Thanks for having me join this celebration.   All pictures are HERE Selected pictures are HERE     •Cake: Modern Kosher •Clothing (Mitzvah): N’Btween •Shoes (Mitzvah): Call It Spring •Clothing (Mom): Ted Baker •Clothing (Dad): Harry Rosen •Decor: Behind the Scene Creations •DJ: Bounce Entertainment      •Invitations: Tiny Prints  •Makeup: Kirsch Cosmetic Studio •Hair: Blo Blow Dry Bar      •Photographer: Jonni Super      •Venue: Adath Israel Congregation •Caterer: Modern Kosher

    Dylan’s Bar Mitzvah: November 19, 2016 I photographed Dylan’s rehearsal and ceremony / party last week at Adath Israel.  This group of four brothers are all jokes and levity, just as brothers should be.  Dylan is the last on the list to come of age so there was no holding back.  After the ceremony, all seriousness was put aside.  The DJ this night was Q Productions and really rocked the house.  I really liked this party, it had all the props; games aplenty, a mechanical bull dressed like a surf-board for the ‘beach’ theme, card tables, hoops, virtual reality googles, the usual teen vices.  Thanks for having us celebrate with you guys, it was a blast.   All Photos are HERE Selected Photos are HERE   Photography: Jonni Super & Ben Gaum Games: Hart Entertainment Games: Abbey Road Entertainment Games: Cineplex Starburst Inc.

    Sasha’s Bar Mitzvah: Oct 23, 2016 Sasha’s bar mitzvah rehearsal and party were awesome.  He is one smooth dude; the rehearsal was just Sasha and Zoe at Beth Torah casually running through what was to be a fabulous service on Saturday evening.  The party was the perfect combination; intimate in feel and big on spirit.  This boy has moves, Sasha and his posse tearing it up.  As usual, Magen Boys raised the roof on the occasion, the decor looked stunning thanks to Trevor Florence Designs, and the inimitable Fern Cohen brought the whole affair together seamlessly.  Thanks for having me celebrate with you guys.   Selected photos HERE.   All Photos HERE   Venue: Beth Torah Officiant: Rabbi Yossi Sapirman Photography: Jonni Super Party Planner: Fern Cohen – Event Planner DJ: Magen Boys – David Keystone Food: Park Hyatt Kosher Catering – Iain MacIIveen Florist: Trevor Florence Designs Magician: Wij Siva Games: Superior Events Security: XL Guys

    Josh’s Bar Mitzvah: Sept 4, 2016 This was a fantastic rehearsal, ceremony, and party over the weekend.  Josh, brothers Jonah and Jeremy, and parents Sharon and Rob were all on hand for the festivities.  Josh was amazing, long Saturday service and a shorter Sunday Rosh Chodesh service.  All in all, a great job.  I photographed the rehearsal on the Thursday when we all got to slow things down for the evening before the busy weekend.  And on Sunday, Rabbi Kaplan, I like this guy.  He charismatically brings warmth to his congregation at Chabad Flamingo, great to see.  The party at e-Zone was nothing but fun.  I always like the ‘whirlyball’ to get things.. whirly-ing.  Thanks for having us there to photograph, it made my last weekend before the school year.   Audio-Visual (BM video): Sharon Zadik Desserts: Easy Sweets Baked Goods Clothing (Mitzvah): North Boys Shoes (Mitzvah): Geox Clothing (Mom):  Dress – Calvin Klein Shoes: Anne Klein Hat: Lilliput Hats Clothing (Dad): Suit – Strellson Shoes: Florsheim Decor/Florist:  Pinpoint Flowers Music: Kenny Munshaw Invitations: Joyous Occasions (Melanie Nathanson) Jewels: Mark Lash Makeup: Mobile Makeover, Alexandra Colella Hair: Maya Estee Cabessa Party Planner: Sharon Zadik Photographer: Jonni Super Photography Specialty Food: Friday Night (Shabbat) Margies Kitchen Ceremony […]
