As an event organizer, you’re responsible for everything from evites to table decorations. You need an event photographer to capture your achievement on film. While you’re busy solving your client’s pain points, you don’t have time to also do the step-and-repeat welcome photos, not to mention posting real-time images during the event.
You’re rolling out a successful event and you need a photo professional who’s engaged. A professional event photographer is actively covering the people and activities that matter, while you keep production moving and put out fires when they happen.
Event photographer with a wide-ranging skill set
There are important moments in every event that need visual footage and they aren’t always the same. Because we have experience as event photographers in every imaginable style, you can be sure we have the ability to provide you with the appropriate footage for the nature and size of your event.
Examples of various functions and the responsibilities of an event photographer are:
Trade Shows – You need headshots of presenters and action shots of keynote speakers, as well as exhibitors, visitors and vendor booths. There may be multiple stages and numerous rooms for various activities or lectures, depending on the size of the show and other demands.
Conferences – For educational seminars, you may need both headshots for advanced materials plus workshop coverage. There may be activities such as cocktail parties or awards presentations that also require the skills of a good event photographer.
Special Events – Name it and we’ve done it: anniversaries, birthdays, retirement celebrations and company launch parties. We typically cover arrivals at a logo wall and go inside for event photography of toasts, presentations, and entertainment.
Weddings – The hope for a bright future begins with a long day (or weekend) and we’re there to capture your memories for posterity. You can book us for rehearsals, pre-ceremony shots of family members, and our team continues with the ceremony, cake, garter, dance, and exit – until the party’s over.
Because you can’t be everywhere
If your event is in a 500,000-square-foot convention center, you need an extremely reliable team working for you. And if it’s a small-but-mighty venue, the same is true. When you’ve spent months, or even years, planning an event, it can’t go wrong. It’s too important, whether it’s a staff retreat or a huge trade show.
When the demands on you are huge, you find out just what your limits are. You could be a member of the Professional Photographers Association – it doesn’t matter. You can’t be on four stages at once. And at registration. And dining with city leaders.
Your event photographer is a key player and we know it. We take our lead from you, but apply years of experience to working the room, the performance, the concert … or the 7-day convention – whatever you’re planning.
You’re protecting your brand and making sure all parties involved are having the time of their lives. We get it. You’re free to make decisions, dress for the gala or plug holes wherever they may be. We have the equipment and know-how to cover photographic services.
Giving your event a longer shelf-life
The best event photographers know that the quality of their work has a bearing on the outcome of your post-event marketing success. Not only do we create images during your event to communicate and build relationships with your customers in real time, your event has a longer life.
Social media options during the event
Posting images online and live streaming enables you to enlarge your audience exponentially. Instead of bragging about the numbers that attend, your stats become huge when you add your social media results.
According to Livestream.com, 43% of the most-watched live events are audiences tuning into conferences, speakers, concerts and festivals. “Video quality is the most important factor for 67% of viewers when watching a Livestream broadcast,” the website says.
That’s why you need a professional event videographer and photographer with talent and experience.
Post-event photo products
Your chat sessions and live updates are important, but what you do the following 364 days may determine your attendance next year. When attendees fly home, they’ll still be connected to you via the internet, and you’ll be ready with high-quality event photography.
We deliver your photo products edited, enhanced and prepared for your marketing use and to generate interest among potential clients.
Social and mobile – for commercial, personal, international or local functions, the photography is a pivotal part of your success. When you hire an event photographer, you hand off the responsibility for quality, but with the agreement that the images meet your specific needs.
