Michael Duretz Photography


"Michael Duretz has done an amazing job capturing the warmth, beauty and joy at all three on my daughters B'nai Mitzvot. I first hired him on 2005, and he just recently completed my youngest daughter's Bat Mitzvah album. He is nothing but a joy to work with, and has become a part of my extended family, having worked with him on so many simchas. He is quite professional in all accounts, yet he is friendly, warm and a pleasure to work with. The quality of his work is excellent! He uses state of the art technology. My most recent album is a work or art!! He delivers the pictures promptly, within 2-3 weeks of the affair. Many of my friends and family have hired Michael after seeing the quality of his work. I look forward to working with Michael again at my daughters' weddings!"

"Hi Michael, I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how happy we were with all the wonderful photographs we have from our childrens1 3 Bar/Bat Mitzvahs throughout the past several years. Not only were the finished albums more beautiful than I could ever have imagined but the portraits on my livingroom wall are a constant reminder of the special moments in our family's lives that you helped to create for us. Our guests could not get over how unobtrusive you and your staff were while getting right in the middle of all the action. You didn't miss a thing! Once again we look forward to having you photograph yet another milestone in our family, Ashley's upcoming wedding day! As you know she wouldn't even set the date until she was sure you were available to capture all the festivites. Photography by Michael is definitely a Martin family tradition!"

With Warmest Regards, Bonny Martin


"It is my pleasure to write this letter recommending Michael Duretz, He has photographed all three of my children for the occasion of their Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. Michael is not only a great photographer, he is a magnificent stylist who knows how to capture the essence of my family. He worked beautifully with each of my kids, making them feel comfortable with the process and in the end brought out their true character in the pictures. My personal favorite, was a unique picture staged by Michael in which each member of my family made a silly face, it was absolutely perfect, for it balanced all of the serious photos that were typical for the moment. I truly wouldn't have anyone else photograph my family. He is professional, artistic, flexible with our needs, creative and gets the pictures to us on time."
