Melissa and Tina were incredibly flexible, professional, patient and helpful! We love the pictures from our daughter's Bat Mitzvah. They are beautiful! They captured the evening so perfectly. The individual and family pictures -- the posed and the candid photos -- they are fantastic! We also love the pictures of the party set-up. Melissa and Tina are wonderful to work with and we really appreciated that on such an exciting and busy day for us.

Dear Studio No. 5, You did an amazing job taking photos at the Shul during our son’s prayer service and then at the party. You were able to capture the emotion and energy of this great event for our family. Thank you!

"I knew my daughter's Bat Mitzvah pictures were going to be fabulous because I was referred to Studio No5 by another photographer. He said that they photographed his son's Bar Mitzvah, so what could be a better recommendation?
That being said, I have to praise the way they went above and beyond to capture our special celebration. My daughter is a cancer survivor so we knew that there would be many emotional moments during the service and party. Melissa and Tina were very sensitive to that and was able to capture every emotional moment without interruption. The service pictures captured the spiritually of the evening and they very respectful to the congregation and was not a distraction during the service.
The reception was held outside at DC Ranch Country Club. Melissa and Tina made sure that we timed the family photos just right to have incredible photos at sunset. The pictures are so stunning, people ask if the sunset is a back drop! They also captured the essence of the evening using the venue itself as part of the pictures. Of course, the candid pictures captured all the emotions of the celebration.
Melissa and Tina are very kind, personable and professional. They will help you feel comfortable during the formal photo sessions. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to have pictures that you love. They are what you have after the celebration is long past and will be shown for years to come.
You won't go wrong hiring Studio No 5."

"We are so glad we choose Melissa & Tina of Emjai Studio/ Studio No. 5 for our son's Bar Mitzvah. Not only are their photographs wonderful and the albums beautiful, but these ladies go above and beyond to make your event special. Melissa & Tina treat you like family and make your guests feel comfortable the whole time."
With love & appreciation for a job well done,

"Melissa and Tina were wonderful to work with! They were flexible, understood our needs, and helped make the memories of our daughter's Bat Mitzvah very special. They have good ideas, and they really stand behind their work. Some photographers take months and months to provide proofs and/or albums, but not this studio. We were the ones dragging our feet! They are creative and easy-going and we'd certainly hire this creative, easy-going team again."

Don't look any further, Melissa and Tina are the photographers you want for your party. They work great together and capture the best photos for their clients. They are very professional and creative. We were so happy with their work and many of my friends have also used them too. You won't be disappointed!!!!

"Thank you Melissa and Tina,
The photos from my daughter's Bat Mitzvah are priceless. You were both professional and personal at the same time, never missing the small touches. The pre-photo shoot for announcements, before the service and during the party--you captured every moment and then some. You blended in during the event and seemed as if you weren't even there, except that you didn't miss any part of this amazing event. The proofs were posted so quickly, I was able to get one instantly to use for our thank you notes! I constantly look at the pictures to relive one of our families greatest milestones. I can't thank you enough!!! I would highly recommend Emjai Studio/Studio No. 5 for the photography at any event, big or small!"

"Melissa and Tina photographed both my son and daughters Mitzvahs. They were amazing to work with. Both photographers are very creative, professional, and so knowledgable. My daughter loved doing her pre-mitzvah shoot at Studio 5. It was especially fun for her to have her makeup done at the studio. Melissa even had music that she liked playing during her shoot. This made her comfortable during the session, and the pictures turned out great. At the temple, Melissa and Tina are familiar with temple layouts, and the support staff, which made our shoot "stress- free." We are so happy we used Studio 5, for our Mitzvahs, they helped make our celebrations very special. The albums they created for each event turned out wonderful. We highly recommend Studio #5! Cheers to Melissa and Tina!!"

"Emjai Studio/Studio No. 5 was such a pleasure to work with. Melissa and Tina have an incredibly creative eye and really captured my daughter's Bat Mitzvah weekend. They were thorough in the photo selection making sure all key elements of the Bat Mitzvah service; décor, cocktail hour and party were represented. We had such a wide array of fabulous picture choices to choose from for our album. We couldn’t have been happier. In addition to their beautiful work during the party we also had her photograph our daughter in her studio that we used as part of a slide show during the bat mitzvah reception. To this day friends and family are still raving about the fantastic pictures. Melissa and Tina also went above and beyond to help us create a unique and beautiful mirrored sign in board. Because I had such great confidence in them, I didn’t even ask to see the mirror until the time of set up. They did not let us down. The mirrored sign in board remains one of our favorite memorabilia from that night. Without question I would recommend Emjai Studio/Studio No. 5 to my friends and family."
