Yoel Hecht recently photographed our twin granddaughters' Bat Mitzvah. He was extremely prompt, professional, and courteous. The photos were SPECTACULAR--so much so that we'll have a hard time choosing the ones we want for the albums. Mr. Hecht was very accommodating to all our needs and requests. He was a pleasure to work with, and we would strongly recommend him.

What can I say but WOW! You were able to turn goofy grins to sinceresmiles and made everyone you photographed look terrific! They say the camera puts on ten pounds? Not when yoau are behind the camera. We have never been as happy with our photos as we are with yours. Your party activities were also a hit! Our son's guests were thrilled with all your special attention to them and many of my guests asked for your number. This was our last bar mitzvah but yours will be one of the first numbers we call after the l'chaims. Thank you for wonderful photos and memories.
With sincere thanks, Tzipporah and Akiva Brezner, Monsey, NY

I just wanted to thank you so much for such a great party last night. Aliza and all the girls had a fabulous time and it was thanks to your hard work (and your dancer’s). You really put your heart into theparty, and we just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate all of your efforts on our behalf. And....we wanted you to put us down for Naomi's Bat Mitzvah. Likely during the day, but don't know the time/place yet. Probably also at YIH. We'll talk soon :) Thanks again and looking forward to seeing the pictures!

HI Yoel, I am watching the video of Jacobs bar mitzvah - you really did an amazing job of course with the music but also with the kids. the balloons were amazing and you were really so helpful. any time you need a reference let us know.
thanks again. Lisa Finkel
Hi Yoel, I have not stopped receiving calls about my son Andy's Bar Mitzvah... EVERY person said you were FABULOUS !!! I agree !!! From the moment you arrived you filled the air with excitement. The music was astounding!! The balloon art was simply AMAZING!!!! Adults were totally fascinated by what you can do with a balloon. You held the kids' attention and everyone was truly amazed with your stories and magic. When I was shopping for entertainers, I asked around and your name popped up 95% of the time. I see why. You are truly an unbelievably gifted person. Thank you for making our simcha a truly unforgettable experience. I will definitely recommend you to others and give you ten stars!!!!
Michelle Wudowsky, Far Rockaway, NY
Dear Yoel, You were amazing; thank you for the great job; I think everyone had a great time; I know I did; are you sure you didn't have a 5 piece band with you? You can most definitely share my review with potential customers; I have already passed it on to others. By the way for my older son, I did have a 5 piece band (which were excellent too), but I think the guests and especially the children had even a better time with you. A little girl at the party in particular had a great time and even asked her mom if she could hire you for her Bat Mitzvah (2 years away)
Thank you again, Nancy Rosenbloom, Holliswood, NY
Yoel, You were just fabulous. The music and dancing were spectacular and you kept the kids entertained! Thanks for helping make our simcha better than we could have expected. Please don’t hesitate to use us for reference. We will definitely recommend you to all our friends.
Sharon & Gerald Unger, Woodmere, NY
Yoel, Thanks for putting together a wonderful marching band for our Hachnasat Sefer Torah-they truly enhanced the simcha for all. Of course your special musical talents always makes a simcha a real treat. The music was great! May we see each other at many more simchas.
Malky and Jay Spector and Family, Lawrence NY
Yoel, I am so glad we decided to go with you for the whole party. The kidshad a great time without any input from me! And...the pictures are absolutely gorgeous. Thanks you so much for everything. I lovehaving the disc to play with too.
Phyllis Lehman, Woodmere, NY
Mr. Hecht, We just wanted to thank you again for going above and beyond for us and our simcha. This was the first (of hopefully many) simcha we made and you helped make it easy and enjoyable. In fact, you were one of the few aspects of our planning that went without a hitch. Your dedication to our crazy Friday schedule was truly appreciated, and your patience-which by the way, you have the most we’ve ever seen in an individual-is really unbelievable. You play, you photograph, and you pretty much could run an entire simcha single-handedly. For thisand more we are grateful.
All the best, The Schiffers, Woodmere NY
i just wanted to let you know that the pictures are beautiful. you did an amazing job entertaining the kids, and the music and everything was perfect. thank you so much!
Shelley Winkler, Far Rockaway, NY
Hi Yoel: I just arrived home late last night and was pleasantly surprised to find music discs of the wedding along with two photographs. You are beyond my expectations . I will make every effort to refer others to you and would be pleased to make recommendations if I am called. Once again thank you for providing great music to our simcha.

Dear Mr. Hecht, Thank you for entertaining the children and doing such a beautiful job at my son's Bar Mitzvah. You are the best entertainer I have seen atany party and highly recommend you to everyone. Of course you may use anything I said in your advertising. My son came home from his Simcha and thanked me for making it such a perfect day. He said that all his friends told him how much fun they had. Thank you again for making sure everyone (grownups and children alike) had a great time.
Sincerely, Allison Fixler, West Hempstead, N.Y.

My son Sammy already wants usto book you for his Bar Mitzvah - in 4 years!
