WHAT KIND OF EVENTS ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS BOOKED FOR?
Whether you are throwing a birthday party, anniversary party, dinner or cocktail party, a hired Photographer can capture magical and spontaneous moments with family, friends, and even children (who are notoriously tricky to photograph!l). From action shots of guests dancing, to still portraits and group photos, our skilled camera men and women know exactly how to get the best out of each situation.
Hiring a specialist wedding Photographer for your big day is an absolute must. After all, you’ve put a lot of time and effort into organising a beautiful venue and ensuring that you look fabulous. You want timeless reminders of one of the most important days of your life to pour over for years to come, and to show friends and family.
Rather than risking blurry shots, wonky angles and missing heads, we recommend hiring a professional. Not only will they know about camera angles and lighting, they will have good quality production facilities, so that the final photographs are great quality, and you can choose which effects or finish you would like.
As well as being able to position everybody for formal wedding photographs, and knowing what backdrops will work best, wedding photographers are adept at seizing all the key moments of the day, such as the entrance of the bride, the first kiss as newlyweds, wedding breakfast speeches, the cutting of the cake, friends and family laughing and talking as they sip champagne, the bride and groom’s first dance, and people letting loose on the dance floor as the evening party gets underway. These memories are precious and deserve the detailed attention of a professional Photographer.
Whether your wedding is trendy or traditional in style, you can find the perfect photographer for your special day. Do you want natural shots or formal portraits? Do you want clear, crips pictures, or a dreamy or moody look? We recommend looking at a range of profiles to consider different styles and processing techniques.
A Photographer perfectly captures a magic moment of entertainment at a wedding
Your office may only have one or two parties a year, so it’s worth hiring a professional Photographer. Experienced at photographing events, they are adept at moving around discreetly, without disrupting the flow of proceedings, and have the creativity to produce a varied and natural selection of shots, making the most of any scenery and backdrops available. A hired Photographer can capture group shots and personal moments from the day, to show off your company or brand at its best.
Co-workers will be catching up with colleagues they know well, and getting to know others. Your photographer will be clicking away, shooting natural moments of employees deep in conversation, or of colleagues laughing and joking around. If your party has a theme, colleagues may be dressed up and will be only too happy to pose for the camera. High-quality prints and digital copies are then made available for you to upload onto your companies website or intranet, or to share on your social media platforms.
When searching through our talented and professional Photographers you will find examples of their work, details of their experience, testimonials, links and contact information. Feel free to use the messaging service to ask questions. They will be more than happy to help.
It’s always worth hiring a professional Photographer for your trade show or product launch because firstly, you will get a talented Photographer to take high-quality photos of the event which can then be used to promote your product further online and in the media. Secondly, having a Photographer around will genuinely give your event a much more professional look, which is bound to impress potential clients!
HOW MUCH WILL A PHOTOGRAPHER COST?
Professional Photographers will charge between £700 and £2000 ($700 - $2000 in the U.S. and €780 - €2250 in Europe), although this will vary depending on how far they have to travel to your venue, and the type and size of your event.
Photographers with a lot of experience will charge more, and certain times of the year can be more expensive, such as summer weekends, Christmas and New Year.
Some photographers may charge extra for digital files, printed albums, fast turnaround of images or additional hours, so make sure you understand exactly what’s included in your quote.
Since prices vary, we recommend getting in touch with your chosen photographers for free, no-obligation quotes. Our easy-to-use directory allows you to search for photographers in your local area and contact them via their profile page. Feel free to ask them what packages they offer. Some will add a rough price guide to their profile for your convenience.
HOW LONG CAN I HIRE A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR?
A Photographer can be hired for your event from the moment it begins until the moment it finishes. You can use our personal messaging service to enquire with individual Photographers about timings.
WHAT SET UP REQUIREMENTS ARE THERE?
Professional photographers supply all of their own equipment, including tripods where necessary. We do ask that the Photographer gets a backstage area in which they can prepare for the shoot ahead. If your venue doesn’t have a backstage area, then it might be worth asking the venue if there is an alternative space in which the Photographer can comfortably get ready.
HOW MUCH SPACE DOES A PHOTOGRAPHER NEED?
Photographers don’t usually need a great deal of room. At most, they may have a tripod. Of course, if you want large group shots, you’ll need sufficient space for everybody, but photographers will also be moving around, taking pictures as they go, capturing what’s going on around them.
