Event photography is suitable for an occasion when you need your private function photographed as a record of what’s happening. Hiring me allows you to run the event, or just sit back and enjoy what’s going on, without the stress of photographing it yourself.
It is mostly documentary-style photography – capturing who is attending and what’s happening. A range of photos will be taken to get an overall sense of your event, as well as formalities such as cake cutting and speeches through to the finer details so that you have well documented photos that you will treasure forever.
Event photography needs quick thinking and the ability to get the best possible photo from a scene that’s not technically perfect. It’s a record of what’s happening at that moment, and it’s not usually possible to move unwanted objects from the scene, change the position of people, or alter the lighting. Sometimes it takes patience to wait for the best moment, and sometimes it’s a rush to get as many photos as possible that best capture what’s happening. Simple posed photos can be arranged, but the majority of photos are candid.
The most requested events I photograph are birthdays and engagement parties. You will receive approximately 30 photos per hour of photography, and high resolution edited images of your event will be available via an online gallery (images will be up to 5mb each).
Prints can be created from your photos if you desire. Please see my ‘Wall Art and Prints’ at the button below.
A minimum booking of two hours is required, and additional time is charged by the hour.
